So for the past few 9 moths or so i started doing a podcast called “Potato Potato Podcast“. It’s a lot of fun and i get to try to be creative and funny at the same time. Anyhow we did a live show over the holidays and made some sketches for the breaks. I thought id post them here to share with all of you!
Here is the first time shooting and editing.
So here is my take on “strong”. Man I wish I didn’t have a regular job so I could spend more time on these. I like the idea of having ridiculous circus acts. I may go deeper into creating more and more ridiculous ones just because. I am doing a watercolor version of this piece at home…I may post that when I am done. I’m just so slow at using watercolor. Oh well…between playing BEATLES™ ROCK BAND™ and watching Beverly Hills Chihuahua I was able to come up with this!
I wish I was lying about watching that movie!
So here is my new one. I got the idea right away for some reason. I have had my share of pouring salt on snails. I don’t remember enjoying it, well maybe a little, I mean come on, you hold the POWER OF LIFE in your sweet little, chubby, booger coated fingers. Who would have thought something so enjoyable on eggs could be so so deadly! And really who was the first kid to do this…and how many other things did he/she pour salt on before hitting the JACKPOT!!!
As for the coloring i have tried to stay away from digital coloring. I find that having SO many options actually makes it more difficult. You don’t have to think as much, and for me I need all the thinking time I can get! But for the sake of time I colored this one digitally…hopefully back to traditional next week!
So I decided that I should maybe start drawing again…I mean, I did go to school for it. But now that I live the life as a “designer” I don’t get to do much drawing or original art. This made me realize, now that I am an old man I need to start doing the things I like to do….like drawing, picking fights with toddlers and ballroom dancing. Here is my quick piece on “wrapped”.
I had the opportunity to do a piece representing “Childhood Memories”. I haven’t painted in such a long time so it was really fun and challenging at the same time. It is 11×17 and done in Cel-Vinyl. I am in the mist of creating another much smaller piece for the show..stay tuned!
So Comic-Con came and went and I did a little book about the 80′s. It was fun to relive all the stuff from the past. My Wife and I watched some 80′s movies to get inspired and man some of them were rough! Some lived up to how i remember them, like Gremlins and Harry and the Henderson’s. Brave little toaster..not so hot. Anyhow here are a few selections from the book!
