50's Gals

Some 50's ladies for Character Design. (I realize the mushroom cloud cockatoo girl looks like some kind of clumsy leftist satire, but I assure you it isn't. I just like drawing cute girls, parrots and explosions.)

Cutlery Grub

Quite possibly the saddest drawing I've ever done.

Long Beach Aquarium

I love the Aquarium...But it's a little frustrating, too, because I know that no matter how hard I try, I can't do justice to the things I see. (Only God can make a Leafy Sea Dragon...)

Elephants and Camels

Slouching inexorably toward film crunch time and I'm fooling around on the computer...
I hadn't gone to Maki's Character Design class for several weeks, so I felt kinda guilty and did the homework. We were supposed to do elephants and camels in the style of a Disney artist called Tom Oreb. Don't think I succeeded in reproducing his style, but I like the Bollywood elephant and the dead camel in the bottom right corner.^^

Blind Cave Deer

Someday I hope to publish a book called 'The Wildlife of Hell.'
This creature was partly inspired by the Chinese Celestial Stag mentioned by Jorge Luis Borges.

Meine Kleine Characters!

Q and Peachy, the characters from my film 'Reasons to Live.' (There's also a third character not pictured.) Just trying out some colors...I like 'em at the moment but they're subject to change. Coloring is several weeks off, at the least.-_-

Victorian Folks

I felt like I was posting a lot of creatures and no actual people. So here are some Victorians. (You might have seen 'em already...If so, I apologize.) I'm not sure what the deal is with the lady, the little guy and the bird. I think maybe the guy was driven insane by the William Morris nightmare designs on the lady's skirt...

Forjackal Creature (in 3-D!)

This is a creature I drew a few years ago for my friend Jody Sol. Then he made a 3-d model of it. How awesome is that!^^

Naked Owl Lady

I'm really not sure what she's supposed to be. She looks rather cosmic...
EDIT- I just noticed that her left arm is way shorter than her right arm.-_- And now I've brought it to your attention...
