Careful, It's Hot!

Monsters make the best guests at tea parties.
This one's watercolor/gouache, about 6.5"x11.5"

Here are a few details.

And here's the original sketch.



Off with the leaves!

Another Watercolor/Gouache.
Here's the original sketch.



Short Shorts is a series of minute long, loosely animated shorts.  Here is the first, "Friends".  I've posted the storyboards and some art from this before.  The theme music was done by my brother Sean. The trumpet and trombone were played by Mike Marg.

Some landscapes

Did some imaginary landscapes in water color today.  I was playing around with different palettes and trying to create contrasts with in the sizes of shapes.  Fun!

This one was my favorite.


Cat in the Window

He's looking a little rough.  Probably got caught in the rain.  Or fell in the sink. 



A bit of The Little Prince, a dash of Little Nemo, a pinch of Castle in the Sky. . .  and ta da!

I think I like the original drawing better than the colored, but that's just me.


Ghost City

Another small ghost watercolor.  This one is only about 5"x5".


Ghost Town

Get it, Ghost Town!?  This one is all digital.

And here's an image I put together showing the different steps of the process.  


On the road

Playing around with colors.  And abandoned highways.  And ghosts.

And here's the initial sketch.


On the Moon Still

So the ghost is still on the moon.  This one's all digital.  I tried to keep it loose and not overwork it.



Loney Ghost meets a Dinosaur

The Lonely Ghost has flowers for the Dino.  How cute!
This is a recent watercolor painting I finished.  It's a smaller one, about 7"x10" on Bristol.

And a detail.


Lonely Castle

I haven't done much with the Lonely Ghost lately, so here he is searching an empty castle. 
This was an ink drawing on Bristol board, 9 x 12 , colored in Photoshop.  It was originally going to be just black and white, but right as I was finishing the ink drawing I (clumsily!) dragged my hand across it and left a huge smear.  So this is the result of me trying to salvage it.  I'll be more careful next time!
