I came up with this after watching a kid follow his mom through a mall store. The kid never looked up, that portable game stayed in his vision the whole time! His world was experienced AROUND the game!

I had an animation idea that I put down in a sketch for further exploration.

I also did a quick value study as well as a basic color overlay.

Plastic bag fairy


This is a pencil sketch and Flash linework of a rough character idea.

He is one of the urban sprites, or modern fairies or whatever I decide to call these guys. I have some characters rolling around that make of parts of city life that you don’t see.

La Badia in Orvieto, Italy

La Badia di Orvieto

I was enamored with this abbey upon first sight. I drew this from the high school shoolyard in Orvieto. Walking through the city that morning, I saw a gate open. My curiosity got me to peek around, seeing as how I was sure that would be a great vantage point to sketch from that day. I spent a bit of time making this sketch and some photos. This was the last sketch in my sketchbook. And I nearly lost the whole thing! Major tragedy to lose a empty sketchbook, let alone a filled one! I pulled a new sketchbook out of my bag and thought I put the filled one away. I left the schoolyard feeling all good, and continued on my way.
