Make-up Woman

Created by The Squirrel Girl
Description: Hi-ya! When my kiddos reach an age where they can create their own characters, they hand me a sketch design of their character and I then turn it into an illustration based off their sketch. This particular character was thought up by my baby girl, whom I have nicknamed “The Squirrel Girl”. This illustration comes up just in time for her birthday. I will be putting this little beauty on a shirt for her to proudly wear on her birthday and later I will make a poster for her to display on her wall in her room. These are always fun, ’cause I work closely with them to get it how they like it. I am sure this is one of many that I will be illustrating of her characters. I look forward to many many more.

Hope you enjoy. And yes… I totally agree, her sketch is WAY better than my illustration. :)

Character Design…

Teddy Lockes
Description: My younger bro, Jay Myers, asked me to do up his main character for a story that he is writing. This is a description straight from the Jay-bird:
“Teddy Lockes: the interactive teddy bear
an analytical study of the daily lives 
of a nuclear family of three
OR
an analytical study of the faerie (fairy) tale
in the technological age.
(Character and Story ©Jay Myers 2000-2007)”

It’s definitely a trippy, funny story.
Well here he is my take on his character.

InVista Rim Poster
Description:I recently got back in contact with a friend whom I used to work with at VML Advertising. Jason Gramke now works for Koch Creative Group out of Witchita. Jason was awesome enough to hook me up with a new gig. I worked with Dustin Commer at Koch to create a full color poster illustration and 4 smaller black and white line art illustrations for their client, InVista. I created the poster entirely in Adobe Illustrator, it is my app of choice these days. Anyway, thanks guys for the gig and I hope we can work on some different projects on down the line.

Enjoy!

Santaman cometh…

Santaman
Description: Hi All… been a bit since I posted last, I have been pretty busy as of late. Things are slowing down some now and that allows me to post up some images that I have done recently. Starting with this fellow.

This is Santaman… created by a fellow deviant art member Daniel Djanie.

When I first saw Daniels work it was in the form of a trailer for his character “Santaman” (see that trailer here). I love the character of Santa and I personally think it is a character that is under developed and could be taken in a direction that makes a person say “Oh yeah that makes total sense for Santa to be like that.”. We mostly see Santa as a Christmas time character but Christmas only happens once a year. What happens the rest of the time? Well, I like Daniel’s take on that, Santa is a superhero. He is Santaman!

Daniel has published a couple of comics with Santaman you can see them here. [link] and [link] And definitely checkout Daniel’s DA gallery. It’s worth a visit .

Enjoy and the Santaman trailer is a MUST SEE!!!

Thanks for looking.

Meggdon the Dragon
Description: I created this guy as part of the Gimmick Dragon series that Joshua Janes and I will be running over at Mojizu.com. Meggdon is a dragon of the apocalypse when he arrives the end is here. Created in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.

Well it’s a New Year, that means new beginnings and resolutions. And, I have several resolutions. My business resolutions really are just an extension of what I started at the end of 2006. To continue to post new stuff, that means I need to draw more and to make my way into other avenues of illustration as well as continuing to work with various advertisers.

I would really like to get into character designs, so this year I am pressing hard to make contacts and to push my art in that direction. Not forsaking the work I am doing now but trying to stretch my creative prowess. I really enjoy designing characters, there is nothing, that I find, to be more rewarding.

So here’s to the New Year and new directions. I hope you all have a very excellent year and that you too have goals that moving towards.

Enjoy!
