Drew some cave props for this Caveman animation collab on hitRECord: "Caveman" Cold Open

There are a bunch of visuals that still need to be illustrated if anyone is interested in contributing :)

I made a one-page comic!

In Berd Blows Up, our main character Berd demonstrates how one goes about becoming a big-time artist. 

Meet Berd. 

Awhile ago I fell off the Unwork Experiment bandwagon but I’m trying to get back on it with this awkward pigeon (which happens to be the theme of the current challenge) !

Don’t ask me what I was thinking when I came up with this. Um.

Unwork Society

Working on a new character

Does anyone have a spare Dribbble invite..?

Trying some new things in terms of style so I drew this gangster robot raptor in Brooklyn. Lots of kinks to work out but I guess this is a small step towards actually drawing characters in full backgrounds.

(I secretly really want to make graphic novels.)

Can’t stop splurging on books lately. Everyone should get their hands on Safari Honeymoon (by Jesse Jacobs) IT IS AWESOME.

“ Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through. ”

Some test prints..

I was thinking about making a little book once I have 10-12 of these Elegant Parts done, print it on nice Mohawk paper and put it on Etsy for like $8 a pop. I guess my question is.. would anyone actually be interested in buying such a thing??

Pre-bedtime sketch of a lil’ stowaway. He’s based on my cat Murray except if Murray were ever on a boat he would probably implode due to sheer terror.
