These are some character designs for a story by Edgar Alan Poe called Hopfrog. They were done some time ago but I'm still working on developing the rest of the story. Not enough hours in the day. The jester is Hop Frog, a tormented dwarf and practical jokester who, along with Tripetta is ordered to entertain the King and his entourage and plan a masquerade .

More zoo studies from the Cincinnati Zoo. Yesterday was the perfect day to go to the zoo. Most of the time it is so hot you can't stand it but yesterday there was a nice breeze and most of the animals were a little more active. You don't learn a whole lot when you go there and draw them sleeping all the time.

Here are some animal studies. More soon. I wonder if anyone is even looking at this stuff?

I've already been bad and haven't been updating this as much as I want. Here are some really quick trees. They are weeping willows.(my version) They dip their tops in the water and the water drips and this is why they are called weeping willows. I don't think they look weeping enough so I'm going to work a little more on developing them to make them a bit more sad and weeping. The color prolly isn't helping that effect either. Other than this I went to the zoo yesterday so as soon as I get that scanned in I'll post it.

Some strange sea life. These quick studies were fun to paint.

I have a blog!

So today I've been occupying much of my time gawking at everyone else's blogs until like 5 minutes ago when I realized that I don't have one. Sorry for the title of my blog. I couldn't think of anything else. I'm going to try to get some new things on here soon but you're going to have to be patient. Till then you can look at some of my work here.
Out to take my dog Kaya for a walk. She's my new husky that I rescued from the shelter. Already chewed up one of my sketchbooks and a paintbrush. Ya think she's trying to say something? I'll post some pics of her soon. Oh and also my work is in a book that I just got today! Ballistic Publishing's d'artiste: Concept Art. Forgot what page but you should check out the book. Insane amount of eye candy. Buy It! Here's the image
