Pen Pal Japan!

So, at the studio I work for, Powerhouse Animation, we have a group of japanese students that send us letters to practice english.  In them, they draw a character and then describe them.  In return we send them back artwork we have done for them on a postcard and a short letter so they can practice reading english.  In any case, this is the art I did for a young man named Taiki.

Pick'em-up Truck

It has been a while, but with some work projects out of the way I was able to scrape up some time for a project for a buddy of mine who works on cars.

My wife and I will be welcoming our first child into the world this september and this was the card I gave to my mother to break the news. It will be her first grandchild from her three kids. I had been trying to figure out how to tell her without being too corny(A fatal flaw of mine), and I came up with the poem while working on animations at my day job. My mom was super stoked which is good since I just lost my father and she lost the greatest man to walk the earth and this rejuvenated her a bit. His name will be Kawika Nakoa and I can't wait to meet the little dude and tell him what an amazing man his grandfather was.

Doodling on the iPad

So, I finally started doodling on my iPad that my wife gave me.  I used Adobe Ideas and the bamboo iPad stylus.  Its a pretty slick little program and for a first time sketch trying to work out the kinks, I think it worked pretty well.  The artwork is inspired by something else I will be doing soon, so stay tuned for a far less crappy version of a creepy jack in the box.

American Dreams

I did a pic of this truck a while back for a buddy and then decided to throw font all over it from its technical specs to random adjectives about the truck.  Very fun, but a pain in the butt to do.  I don't normally work a lot with font, because I don't see the romance in it, but I respect lettering etc as an art because it takes a lot of thought and planning that most people simply don't realize.  And compared to them, I feel like I would have done just as well with a crayon.  Enjoy!
