Welcome to Falling Rock National Park


Friday Robots

This Friday Robot has Autumnal colors.


Friday Robots Returns

The return of Friday Robots! This was a series I did for many years. An art challenge, a fun bit of design work, and a way to make something once a week with no expectations. This guy is more representational than usual, but he is as mysterious as any Robot I’ve met.

Another older piece that I recolored using cutting edge technology. Actually the same version of Photoshop I used for the original. I’ve been having some fun trying out new brushes and shading techniques. For comparison, here is the original cover.

I thought I’d give this piece from 2014 a new coat of paint. One of my favorite things about digital art (or in this case, digital color) is the ability to revisit older works and make tweaks. George Lucas took this to the extreme, but I think there’s a middle path. What do you think? Do you prefer this, or the older version with flat color?

Cul de Sac, part 6 of 6

I hope you’ve enjoyed my little homage to Richard Thompson. He was (and still is) a cartoonist who deeply inspires me. The fact he is no longer around to make new work doesn’t lessen the impact he had on me, or really, the industry as a whole.

This was a unique Inktober for me. Instead of making one drawing per day, I made six strips (the equivalent of one week of newspaper strips). I drew them entirely digitally, making the “pencil” sketches on my iPad then using Photoshop and my Cintiq tablet for the finished, “inked” strips. It was a useful experiment, and I find the finished product fairly close to my traditionally inked pages. Maybe you can tell me if you find this approach appealing.

I hope to make more new work soon. In the meantime, this has been a fun diversion.
