SHRED! Out now!

My pals Greg Baldwin and Dave Guertin (i.e. Creaturebox) have their new book out, now: GET IT HERE

"Our second installment of SHRED collects over 160 new monsters, robots and lost space explorers battling to survive our treacherous universe. With over two years’ worth of work torn from our sketchbooks and drawing tables, this volume unleashes a hoard of chaos unfit for most star systems. Each page is jam packed with our no holds barred combat with traditional materials including sharpened pencils, splattery ink and more paper cuts than we could count." (Greg and Dave)

Take on Jake

Live from the class: Doing a "take on Jake" with my students, today.

The exercise was to create a scene with two characters like on the cover of Jake Parker's Drawings III book. Create something new without copying it, but stealing apples from the same tree. (Link: Mr Jake Parker)

Duck of the ducks

June 9th! Happy Birthday, Donald! (via EW)

Go Jim! Go Maëster!

In 2013 the incomparable Jim Maëster made me a beautiful birthday duck. This is now my get-well-soon-duck as a small return, plus the link to the very page where you can support him: GO MAESTER!

Hijacking, still

Hijacking (or re-designing) vintage toys and photos from the 1960s and classical 19th century fine-art pieces was an essential part of a full-scale visual development project I'm right about to finish. I'll put a finer point on that shortly. (Photos via/courtesy of The Bat Channel)

John Starduck rough pieces from way, way back

The beaks were shaped differently than the ones now. The ones from now are more like big noses or snouts.

I didn't plan to draw a bird, but ended up drawing one.
