Buck In The Tree





I did (am still doing) a lot of concept work for HF Recalibrated. I titled this piece "Mississippi Afternoon Smoothy". (Dear me, Ryan's dead right. I'm posting like a mad man.)

Toby Skybuckle



My only worry and ambition.

Fiddlesticks! It's just one of my fave projects... I just glanced through the early concepts sketches. (BTW: This cartoon bird is borrowed from a different project, to be exact)

Birds In Arms










"Behind what are you hiding, you lazy-bones!"

Well, taken out of the context, they may seem violent. However, they're just fishing for attention... and I'm fishing for characters.

The Undertaker And Humpty Dumpty, 'Recalibrated'












Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall,
All the King's horses and all the King's men,
Couldn't put Humpty together again.

Well, not here. In Huck Finn's Recalibrated Fantastic Adventures the result of the great fall becomes "the character whitin". (BTW: Originally, I wanted this to take part in the Toby Skybuckle story, but soon it became a stand-alone thing because of its complexity)
Boy, do I post too much? I think I post too much.

Huckleberry Finn (a bit different), Post No. 100!

Update: Did I said Mark Twain meets Lewis Carroll? I've to add Clive Barker, I guess. At least because of this hare. He is a sort of integrated or mutated version of The White Hare and The March Hare in Huck Finn's recalibrated fantastic adventures:



And here are the previously posted pieces:





Mark Twain meets Lewis Carroll or so. (I did this sheet while I was working on the stage design of a Tom Sawyer musical production, some time ago. Since then, I'm loosely working on the plot and some early designs whenever it's possible)

Bogey Bones, Freestyle Boarder

Update: This is a mere acquaintance of Mr. Bones, Bogey Tyndale. He is a bit slow on the uptake, but that is mainly because he's scatterbrained in the best possible sense.




And the Honorable Mr. B. Bones himself:



I like the background. Praise the Impressionist. (James, I'm using Photoshop and the Impressionist plug-in for the painting look.)

For Ryan Wood: The Drawing Machine




So, I'm back to the drawing desk. I dedicate this piece to my fellow comrade-at-pencils, the fabulous Ryan Wood. (Thanks, Ryan)

By the by, this thing was inspired by Nic Ramage's Drawing Machine:

Desk

Update: This one is for Derek.



A mere scribble... (titled "Gangster, forever")
