Hunchback Theme

I've really been enjoying pen and ink recently. I think the permanence of the media has been a good challenge in terms of having to plan each mark ahead of time while still trying to maintain a loose, gestural quality...

These were all drawn with a calligraphy pen and shaded with a dried out Tombo marker

Hundreds

I had the awesome opportunity to do another graphic for the Hundreds!
The concept was to illustrate a devilish angel (or angelic devil) character in the style of those classic cartoons we all used to watch growing up...

Astronaut Dreams

A little while ago I had the chance to do this illustration for the Hundreds. The concept given to me was to depict a little kid playing with his dog, dreaming of being an astronaut. The nostalgic "Dick and Jane" feel points to the fact that it's hard to find kids now days that still dream up homemade spaceships and suits. Awesome concept Bobby!


Final illustration:

CDC Sketches

These are from our CDC Drawing group at work. It stands for Corner Drawing Club (as Craig Mackay clarified, not to be confused with the Center for Disease Control)..basically because whoever wants to, meets on the corner outside the building to draw.
I got inspired by a post on the Drawn blog which showed Brenden Wetzel's quick sketches using watercolor and pen. I'm not sure which he did first, but I really admired how the watercolor captured the gesture shape while the pen added the expression.

I tried my own version which was really fun and different. I chose to do the watercolor first to try to capture the shapes and silhouettes of people walking by and waiting for the light to change. I didn't add too much pencil, but I'm sure I'll experiment more with this in the future.
Here are a few sketches, and one caricature of Kelvin.
