Here’s a spot illustration for the Gwango story. It’s the last illustration of the book, the finale hurrah, so I wanted it to resemble a shot from a Sergio Leone movie or something--you know, real grandiose.

Gwango Encounters the Illusive Modern Man!

I’m thrilled to say that one of my illustrations from Gwango the Great made it onto the website Drawn. I’m really excited about this, so thanks again Jared!
Click here for the link.

Above is another illustration for the story, along with a ruff draft version of the drawing that I thought merited exhibition. This scene is a little ode to my home town of Palm Springs.

I came up with a character awhile back...His name is Jack Castle, a teenage kid who leaves behind the comforts of suburban living for a feral life spent in a faraway vacant lot. I'll get around to posting the story one of these days. Until then, here’s a still from the movie version I made back in the good old community college days.

“The life of a PRIMITIVE is the life of a rebellious nomad who little enjoys the company of others.”
- Jack Castle, the Primitive

Do you know what time it is boys and girls? Its time for the paint drawing of the day!!!

Guacamole Breath!

Here’s another drawing for the Gwango project. In the scene, Gwango has a mighty foul breath, and it ends with the skittish lizard barking Spanish cuss words and squirting blood from its eyeballs.

The Island Primitive!

Our homework assignment this week in character design class was to create a Robinson Crusoe type fellow. Here’s what I came up with.
