CaD : "Singles Valentines" Doodles

As you know, I'm working on a series of 3 "Singles Valentines" care packages.  Each one will have it's own custom painted box, and below are a series of sketches I did trying to decide what would go on the top of each one.  Well, except for the bird flipping the panda... that I did after drawing the panda flipping the bird, as it just seemed to be the natural progression of things.

I'm not sure what the caption for the grumpy cat one would be, but I'm open to suggestions!

ALSO: If you would like to sponsor the video I'll be making putting these together and get a chance to win one of these for yourself or a single friend in your life, you still have time!  Just send any amount you'd like via PayPal to and you'll be in the running.  

Just make sure to get it in by Thursday night, as I'll be putting the video together Friday & want to ship these out first thing monday morning.  So no dilly-dallying, y'all!

CaD: Sketch Pages

So since you all are all amped up for some good ol' Superbowl Football goodness*, I've decided to dig through some of my old sketches and find some buried goodies to share with you today.  

First up is a page of creature brainstorming I was doing for a currently-in-development world-building project.  Most of these still need a bunch of work, but I thought I'd give you a little taste of things to come in the future.

This second page features my Dungeons & Dragons character, Inix**, along with a bunch of doodles of pet/companion/familiars I might like her to have should the opportunity present itself.***. 


So that's it for today! Best of luck to your team of choice, and I'll see you tomorrow. :)

* Unless, like me, you couldn't give a horse's patootie about football and are only in it for the party food, half-time show, and weird commercials.  OR you're in a country that doesn't follow American Football at all, in which case, happy Sunday!

** No relation to the Inix from "Broken Plot Device".  I'm just like the name and tend to use it a lot for fantasy-type characters.  Fun Fact: "Inix" was also the name of my first World of Warcraft Character, a troll hunter.

*** Come on, Kevin. Get on that!


Hey, guys!  Oh man, do I have a THING for you!

I'm launching a new thing starting today.  It's part drawing practice, part creativity exercise, and part I-just-want-to-have-some-fun-god-dammit.  Basically, for the entire year of 2013, I'll be uploading one drawing of a random "critter" every day. It could be a cartoon or a realistic life drawing. It could be a real living animal, an extinct beast, a fantasy creature or alien. They'll range from pencil sketch doodles to full, fleshed-out color pieces.  

The idea is to have something fun for you to come check out every day*, on top of whatever other additional things I feel like posting.  So even on days where there isn't a larger update like a video, blog, comic, or what have you, there will still be that day's critter.

Seeing as I'm starting this a month late however, the next week or so will be spent catching up to the current date.  So for the time being, enjoy these extra daily critters!  There will be many, MANY more to come. :)


I'll see you tomorrow with more critters! Until then, stay safe and be nice to your mailman.

*On the off-chance I will be without internet access for any period of time, I'll either post extra drawings early, or catch up after the fact.  I'll do everything in my power to avoid this, but ya know, stuff happens.
