Playing with Matches

Playing with Matches

Here's another from the children's book class, illustrating a story from a classmates past. So basically two girls skip school and play with matches. Last weeks animal piece was looking kind of out of place in my portfolio so I decided to do another, and cheetah -> cheatah -> cheaters because I'm hilarious.

Nature Hike

Nature Hike
I'm taking a children's book class at PNCA and while sketching I got really frustrated that children weren't looking like children but rather boxes with giant heads, so after that and having been looking at a lot of Richard Scarry lately this is what came out.

Embarrassing Moments #1 "Mud Bath"

Embarrassing Moment #1 "Mud Bath"

This is a project I've wanted to try forever but never got around to, illustrating the embarrassing moments stories from teen magazines. There's something so wonderfully absurd about them that they're kind of wonderful. This is based on this one from Seventeen Magazine; basically boy goes in for the kiss, girl falls in a puddle.
The inclusion of the spectral figure was because the whole thing was coming off as a bit of an unwelcome advance thing going on, and now it has this kind of supernatural vibe which I kind of like and may just abandon claiming the source text.

Appreciation Button/Life Off GIve Away Results

I'm Appreciated button

Here's little something that I did for work the other day, it was quick and I guess I still have my spaceman on the brain.

Speaking of congrats to mighty and @rebzdeladisco you won the give away for copies of Lift Off, contact me with you mailing details and I'll get those out to you.

If you didn't win don't fret, I'll have copies with me when I'm wandering around Stumptown in a couple of weeks so track me down there and I'm sure we can work something out, or if you're not going to be there check in with me after the 19th I may have some copies.
