Basset Hound Ears

My little sister breeds basset hounds and is always asking for a new drawing. I was sketching during a long meeting last week and ended up really liking it. I made the mistake of showing my sister the sketch and she kept begging me to finish it for her. It's her profile pic on FB now...EW!("hashtag"jimmyfallonstyle)

Dark Horse

The cowboy boots, horse anatomy, the tree...gave me a lot of grief. I think I got stuck in the downward spiral of "noodling it to death". But overall, this was fun to use some new photoshop brushes. I tried incorporating lots of different textures. Please overlook the poor video editing.

Scaredy Bear

I am sometimes a little afraid of textures overpowering my paintings. but I think I found a happy balance in this one. I think I'll do more of these in the future. Maybe some wolves or some "moosen."

More "Libritos" for Imagine Learning

I love these smaller books because I get to explore and try different things. We usually only spend a week or two on them, so they're simplified quite a bit. 

Experimenting with new brushes in Photoshop; New textures; different way of drawing trees and environments. 

I don't like apes/ monkeys btw.  'Planet of the Apes' disturbes me to no end! I hate those movies!  These little monkeys may be cute here, but all the preliminary sketches were horrific little monsters! Gorillas are cool though. :-)

Playmill Poster 2013

The Playmill Theatre asked me to create their poster again this year! I did the illustration/ color and the graphic design was by Kari Schuerch.

They are a small theatre located in West Yellowstone. It's one of my favorite places, and if you get to go, be sure to get the huckleberry fudge! It's Divine!
