sketchdump

Well, hey there.

Been busy lately with some projects (more on these later), so in the meantime here are some random sketches from the last couple weeks...

Undersea/space suit. Oven mitts come standard.

From a dream I had involving an antique bookstore and werewolves. That's really all you need to know.

Barrrarrarrr!

Atomic Robo. Doing... something.

Lion-o, lord of the kitty cats.

harpooner


A quick sketch during lunch at Bruegger's today.

I'm a sucker for many things: bad fantasy films, cereals that include toys in the boxes, 3D glasses, a good rootbeer, and anything corduroy... to name just a handful. But one theme I've always been drawn to is things nautical. I think I was born with an interest in the nomadic and the survivalist, heck, one of my first* book reports was on Robinson Crusoe. Something about the self-contained-ness of life on a ship at sea was both fascinating and scary. What really did it though, was probably this:


The wreck of the Howard W. Middleton.
I grew up around this shipwreck, spending every single one of my summers poking around it near our family cottage. I guess it was sort of my version of the tree-house.

Just... slippery-er.
