New portrait work of some of the contributing writers for In Touch magazine. Pen and ink with watercolor washes.

SORT OF A DOODLE: Far from home

February 11, 2015

Upon the Mountains SMALL

Another doodle that graduated to “sort of”. No real story behind it; just knocking around with the pen and watercolors. I’ll let your brain decide what it’s all about.

MEETING DOODLE: You want studly? ‘Cause he’s bringing the studly, baby!

Lucius had always considered himself quite the chick magnet, but felt his new ponytail really amped up the swoon factor.

MEETING DOODLE: Spaz Man and the Incomplete, Backwards-flying Zebra!

January 27, 2015

spaz man zebra SMALL

Yet another doodle that was inspired by a conversation with my kids. The zebra’s flight is propelled by nose jets, but I didn’t properly plan the placement of the doodle on the paper, so- unfortunately- his nostril rockets are not represented here in all their glory. The failure to include them is truly one of the saddest moments in my artistic career.

SORT OF A DOODLE: Making Faces

So, “why is it ‘sort of a doodle’?”, you might ask.

What? You didn’t ask? Well, I’m gonna tell ya anyway, Mister Fancy Pants!

It started as a meeting doodle. No, really. I know you’re shocked. But then it was just sitting there on my desk, minding its own business, when… BAM! I watercolored the daylights out of that sucker, thus elevating it from mere “doodle” to the lofty status of “sort of doodle” for all eternity. I’m sure it’s grateful; you can see it in his eyes.

Sure, shoes are expensive… and pants are downright impossible to find… but his stability in high winds is top notch.

Lots of Christmas card envelopes lying around the house, just waiting to be doodled upon.

NOT A DOODLE: “All The Places You’ll Go” book cover

November 5, 2014

ALL THE PLACES small no watermark

 

 

My latest book cover work for Tyndale House Publishing and author John Ortberg. You might recognize the bird from a previous post of mine.

The title is, of course, a play on the old Dr. Seuss book “Oh, The Places You’ll Go”, and refers to how God provides all of us with open doors and opportunities, but it’s up to us to choose which path we take. We went with a more playful style in keeping with the title’s mood.

DOODLE: Speed Doodling. It’s a full-contact sport.

October 9, 2014

hello dere SMALLThis doodle was a “brain flusher”. Just a quickie to warm up for the real work of the day. Think it took me about ten minutes, tops, from the time the pen hit the paper to the last watercolor stroke.
