Novel Characters Blog

I'm starting a new blog!  I will still be updating this one as often as I can, but I will also be updating (hopefully weekly) character illustrations and book reviews of my favorite characters from novels.  It's called Novel Characters!  It's my... uh, novel idea! ;-)  Check it out:

Marvel Tribute Show Nov. 16th San Diego

Back in November, I had a piece up at the Marvel Tribute Show in San Diego, CA which was organized by a good friend of mine.  I'd been wanting to post about it, but didn't get a chance to until now.  For my illustration I worked in photoshop like I often do.  I didn't even get to attend the show in person, but my friend printed it out and framed it.  You can see it on the wall in the pic below and I think it came out looking good!

I have a really hard time drawing anything that isn't cute, so I when ahead and embraced the cuteness, picking May Parker as my heroine.  I decided to portray her rescuing cats who might have landed on their feet anyway, but appreciate not using up one of their nine lives regardless.
Below you can see my original sketch.  I usually start out pretty lose like this and do a lot of the real drawing and refining directly in photoshop.  I work with a wacom intus tablet.

Logo Design

Wow, it's been a busy year for me so far!  Hard to believe it's already March and this is my first post of the year.  I've been doing lots of animating and working on different art projects that I'm unable to share about yet, but I've recently finished some logos and web design related work.  Check out the banner I did for Fight Gamut:
I actually did this logo for Libertyburg last year, and I'm glad to see it in use on their twitter page!
Trees definitely make for a captivating logo.
