This was done as an “example of technique” sketch for a book that never was. Ballpoint pen on Bristol.

Roll on DETAIL

Behold! A detail from a recent t-shirt design I drew. Used a digital “scratchboard” technique on this one. Actually, I’ve used that on several of my most recent jobs; I’m really enjoying the look and feel of that technique.

Row, row, row your… AAAAAGH!!! ELEPHANT IN A KAYAK!!!!

March 23, 2012

 

Got commissioned recently to do this mascot illustration for the Crimson Kayaker blog. Then I started thinking, “Dang. How big would a kayak have to be for an elephant to fit in it?” I’m thinking that sucker would have to be a converted 35-foot cabin cruiser. And the blades on the paddle would be the size of dinner tables.

But, then again, I have been known to overthink things sometimes.

Dribbling Dorsal Fins, Batman!!!!

This is my son’s fifth year of basketball, and his team this time around is the Sharks. So I whipped up a mascot logo for them, doing the rough sketch in Photoshop first…

…and then working up the tight final art in Illustrator. Voila!

Cogito Ergo Sumo!

I think, therefore I wrassle!

Pumped Up!

Oliver was living proof that it is VERY difficult to be a well-rounded bodybuilder and be obsessive-compulsive with a left arm fixation.

Cry Gator!

December 8, 2009

As you know, if you’ve followed my blog for long, I really have no interest in spectator sports, but I DO love mascots and cartoons. So when an idea pops into my brain for a toon, I draw it, sports related or not.

And sometimes, I sell it!

Gator Ball!

My son is playing his first year of basketball on our church league. Their team name is the Gators, so I whipped up a quick mascot drawing for them.

I chose to do the animal gator, because I figured it was safe to assume that my church wasn’t referring to the 1970s Burt Reynolds movie Gator when they named my son’s team. Then again, you never know……naming them after the movie would explain why they included a fake mustache and sideburns as part of the required uniform.

Big Al Stomp!

My brother-in-law Hal is one of the most gung-ho Alabama football fans I know. The man lives and breathes all things Crimson Tide. Now, I went to Auburn, but let me say right up front I couldn’t possibly care less about college sports. I couldn’t care less if you injected an additional gallon of collegiate sports apathy into my veins.

That being said, the Iron Bowl is coming up this weekend, so that means the entire state of Alabama will shut down on Saturday. Many people will pour out a year’s-worth of passion, hostility and devotion in a 3 hour orgy of screaming, cheering, crying and cussing. Hal will probably be one of the loudest.

So, this doodle is for you, Hal. Hope your team makes you cheer ’til you’re hoarse.
