Doing a little more branding…

By

  Just been working on a little branding. I always struggle with what I think looks cool versus what is readable. I think I’ve stuck a decent middle-ground with this one. This really makes me want to get into screen printing. I think it might look good across the front of a shirt.

It Really is about the Reveal

By

  I wasn’t really sure if I wanted to start a new project so I decided to just do some doodling. Practice some line-work and watch Gravity Falls with my daughter. I have heard some good stuff about the show so I thought we’d check it out. It is really fun and I highly recommend it. Back to the matter at hand…     It isn’t a good drawing but it is something. I haven’t done anything with animations lately so I thought it might be fun to mess around a little bit. I didn’t even do a good scan. I just used a mobile phone pic, cleaned it up a bit and got to work. The last few animations I did didn’t really work out because I was impatient. I didn’t want to spend a ton of time working on this so I tried to figure out what areas to focus on and the best way to maximize frames so it would appear smooth but the file size...

Nothin’ but a Dog

By

  I haven’t been doing anything of note lately. Nothing. No sketches. No paintings. Nothing. I have some ideas rattling around in my head but nothing has been happening. I went back to the zoo and did some cacti cleanup but other than that I have just been getting by. I don’t have anything else so here is a picture of my dog playing with a stuffed s’more…  

I Present the Quokka…

By

From the land that brought you Syndey Funnel Spiders, Taipan Snakes and Drop Bears comes an animal so cute and adorable it almost makes up for those deadly monstrosities. I present the quokka…     They aren’t just adorable, they are also super friendly. There is actually a page on Australia.com with tips on how to get a good selfie with the little critter.     I thought it might be too good to be true but indeed Snopes even had an article because so many people, myself included, found this marsupial’s existence too good to be true.     Just look at that little gal!

Another Cactus Update

By

  I planted a few cacti about 3 weeks ago. I planted them at the zoo. I found a small, out of the way path and I put them there. I didn’t think of them much after that. Well that’s not entirely true, I thought about them constantly for about 2 days and then I kind of forgot about them. I went to the zoo over the weekend and checked on my little sculptures. I figured they would be gone but they weren’t. They were still there. A little worse for wear but they were still there. It looked as though some kids had ran across them and pulled them out of the ground but their parent had hastily replanted them. The zoo was kind of busy so I didn’t have time to fix them at all but next time I go I will fix them up and perhaps plant some more. …And now for something totally different. See this kid?     He is your ordinary, everyday kid. His name is...

An Anniversary

By

My wife and I had an anniversary. We’ve been together for a little while now but we’ve been so busy we didn’t really have a chance to celebrate. This year has made it a little hard to celebrate anything. We kind of ditched out on birthdays too. Anyway, I made up a little card and we followed it up with a couple of shots. Here’s to one more year… She has been the only thing that’s kept me going. We were able to get an evening to ourselves. We had dinner at a little local place but we weren’t quite ready to go home afterward so we stopped at the grocery store, grabbed a couple of tall-boys and hung out at the park for a little bit before going home. Living life to the fullest.
