more sketches and redesigns

Something about fighter jets that makes one's blood tingle. These redesigns wouldn't actually fly, but it's fun to give your imagination a try.

things that go!

excerpts from my sketchbook of drawings from drawing on site at museums.


Fish have the most interesting forms and colors. I'm trying to get some redesigns done but having too much fun just playing with gouache.

animal drawings

Drawing animals at the zoo was a challenge but really fascinating. I tried to take all the several animals I studied to combine them all into a redesigned animal.

BuG mAnIA!

Bug have cool interlocking parts, once you get past the "ick" factor!


Happy Halloween!

Anyone for some weird candy?! Mmmm, tastes like bugs...

Now is the time to think of the ghosts of pets long past, perhaps to haunt us at last!


observational sketching

This work is done for visual communication 4 at ACCD.

These were done at the LA Arboretum, a much better place to draw than Huntington Gardens by far. Less people, more interesting flora, fauna, and architecture, quiet and no snobby staff or gestapo security.
Ducks are fun creatures to observe, really like their aerodynamic shape and their gestures.

Sketched this directly in pen with out any lay-in. This technique requires a thorough understanding of form and visual analysis and is great drawing practice.

This is an excerpt from my sketchbook for landscape class.


Did this surfing dog in Adobe Illustrator as a color study. This dog has a "crusin'' attitude. Next time I want to do a very, very scared dog about to be engulfed by a tsunami!

Just had to sketch this for no reason.


quick renderings

This was a rendering for vis com 3, done with marker and pastel.


Attempted to capture some of the strong and self-possessed qualities in the subject.

Quick sketch of a ruined city.
environment showing a mood.
This was a CGI environment I did in Alias/Maya . The concept came from a story I had in mind set in feudal China. It started with a sketch, then a color comp, then I built it using mostly nurbs. Each object was individually light linked.
Concept of a city which I modeled, textured and lighted.
