This past sunday I attended a BBQ hosted by my friends Max and Andrew. It was a pretty amazing event, as blogged about by Max , complete with an awesome photo of me eating a giant catfish po'boy.

The image above was a quick drawing of max tending grill (way to go Max, looking so smooth). Good job team, can't wait for the next BBQ.

It looks like I'll be designing a backpack for the Summer '08 line so I was doing a few doodles of some backpack styles. I quickly scanned a few in and threw on some color just to get a bit more practice at the process.

It only took 10 minutes to drop in the color on both backpacks and now that I've created the layered photoshop file I can recolor them as may times as I like. I was planning on having a full page of color options to post but I'm off the check out Gabe and Lindsay in their Ritalin Readings show.


In 15 minutes I've colored up these options for both backpacks. Layering in the camouflage was super easy as well.

Ok, night.

Illustration Friday - Camouflage

I'm not sure if this is technically a mnemonic device but whenever I hear the word Camouflage this is what I picture in my mind.

Camel + Flag = Camouflage

Weird, eh?

My Analog Desktop

Here is a drawing of my desk at work. Yesterday quite a few people were laid off here at work so it's been a somewhat difficult week so far. Hopefully tomorrow will be an easy and smooth transition into the weekend.

I again drew this large, on 11x17 paper and I think I may add some color in the next day or two. The yellow box is a post-it note drawing of a stuffed rhino that started out the drawing.

Have a great evening!

Coney Island!

Travis, Kate and I rode our bikes out to Coney Island today. We had hot dogs at Famous Nathan's and then went out to the beach to enjoy the cold sandy breeze coming off the ocean.

This is Travis reading on the beach after a quick dip in the ocean.

Adding Color

Ok, more practice adding color to drawings, this time in Photoshop using layers. I just pulled my recent drawings and started adding layers and filling in some solid colors. I think I'm going to keep working on this one and see where it goes.


Adorama Building

I made this sketch on an 11x17 piece of photocopier paper. When re-sized down 25% it looks really nice, I guess it's like taking five steps back from a drawing.

A Street in China

I've been feeling a bit under the weather the past few days but I'm trying to get back into the daily drawing thing.

I colored this one by drawing shapes in Illustrator and then importing them into Photoshop.
