Lunch Sketch

Here's today's lunch sketch. A coworker thought the bottom of the sea-bed looked like a desert. Ah well let me know what you think and leave a comment.

Lunch Sketch


That can only me one thing, I've got a new sketch to post. Wasn't feeling inspired and kept getting harrased to hurry up my lunch to help customers so this is it. My favorite one is the fish.

Lunch Sketch

It's that time again kiddies. Today's Lunch Sketch, this one I want to redraw with pencil to make the composition a little clearer and to add color to it. The idea isn't new (octopus playing poker) but I just like the idea of a gambler that has eight arms. How do you keep him from cheating?


Three eyed Monster

I like watching a PPS show called Pioneers of Television and while watching the episode about Science Fiction I came up with this guy. I want to start ruffing out some animation of him walking on his two tentacles that while sitting still uses as arms and hands. It should be fun, I also want to clean him up in photoshop and give him some color.

Lunch Sketch

Here's today's lunch sketch, I like the idea of doing a sketch a day so from now on I'll post a sketch from lunch each day and call these art posts as Lunch Sketch. Be it good, bad, or really bad. I promise I will draw a sketch each day for lunch. Now I used to throw that word around WAY to much but I now only say the P word if I mean it. So I said it I better do it and besides no one looks at this site anyway. Why I make myself sick in the stomach or talk myself out of drawing is others fear and doubts put on me and I'm tired of carrying the baggage.

2011 Goals Update

Well I know it's been a few weeks now since my first post for the year, so I'm giving and update on my short term goal number one of getting my studio up and running. I have my file cabinet cleaned up and should be able to get it from my dad's house this weekend and get the art table taken apart and brought over as well. I have straighten up the office getting boxes and bins out that don't belong. I still need to buy some cheap wood boards to get the closet turned into a proper and organized art supply closet. I will most likely take from my CTN Network trip saves to make this happen as I now know it will cost me one thousand to make the trip and this is very doable. Pulse I'll have my first goal done and off of my mind.

It feels good to be able to type these things out and have a clear in black and white idea of what I want and how I'm going to get it. More art to post been busy sketching too.

Happy New Year

Well it"s another new year for the old blog. I have limited myself to six new Year resolutions with three being short term goals. When these three are completed then I'll make new ones. The long therm goals will being worked on during the WHOLE year. I plan on making progress reports at the end of each month for these so that I am able to see how far I am to completing these three long term goals by the end of this year and if i have to carry them over into next year.

Short Term Goals  

1: Organize and setup office for animation and graphic design.

2: Take Stephen Silvers Character Design class.

3: Start classes at RVC for Graphic design and Web design.

Long Term Goals

1: Save up for the Creative Talent Network conference in November, This I plan on attending by myself

2: Visit my Family in PA this summer with my wife and son.

3:  Save up for IAnimate.net animation classes, it's far cheaper then Animation Mentor right now and a far more practical goal to be completed.

Goals one and two can be achieved this year and will be, goal three will take a little bit more time due to the fact that My second short term goal requires money and I want this to be completed first. We will see if i make the trip to PA with the family or not. I am making sure that for this year each month is devoted to making my goal of becoming an animator is achieved first, then my family. anything else will be last on my list. I say this because last year was devoted to my home and family. It's now been a full year since we moved in and major projects HAD to be addressed but this is over now and I know I can become an animator by changing old habits and attitudes that have kept me form showing my true potential. The past few months from last year I had been working on the attitude and bad habits and plan on keeping even more vigil on changing my old ways. To a new year and completing goals.
