hello, 2014

I drew this little guy for our holiday cards this year.  He hopes everyone had a good holiday and sends best wishes for the new year!

blood war

white blood cell vs bacteria
The war is on.  I think I know who is going to win.

Today's sketch daily topic was to draw either a video game character that I had never heard of but apparently has powers relating to blood, or to draw war.   I'd say a white blood cell eating some bacteria is a happy medium.

what's up?

chicken butt!

This is a weird one, but it's not my fault, I swear.  Sketch daily's main topic was "something shocking" and the alternate topic was "chickens", so really, this was the only answer.

the bunny & the box

The Bunny and the Box.  Done for a sketch daily assignment, and inspired by a short piece of writing by Brandon:
<Previous Entries Illegible> 
Entry 6: Not long after my eyes finally open, I'm grabbed and shoved into a dark, little box. Light streams in from holes in the side as familiar smells of family fade away. The box tilts and dips, forcing me to scramble to maintain my footing. Holding still and quiet provides no release as my silence is met with frantic taps on the side. What fresh hell is this. 
Entry 7: Still dark. Still loud.
Entry 8: The box has come to a rest. As it slowly opens, new air rushes in. No longer can I smell the heady scent of warmth and kin, instead some sort of lemon scent. Notes of vegetables, but mysteriously cleaned. I am overwhelmed and enfolded by the stench of these large creatures, as if their big hands and wide eyes were not frightening enough. Gathering my resolve, I balance myself and peer up over the lip of the box. I see strange branches that culminate in flat surfaces, piles of some sort of soft and colorful material, and a surface that I cannot characterize. Not my familiar wood chips or grass, it seems too regular. Too soft. My first explorations are cut short by a chilling cry, both high pitched and protracted, that pierces the silence. Thumping once, I dive back down into the box; my prison now become my sanctuary. Only my ears are active, twisting back and forth, as I ball myself in the corner.
Frith, grant your faithful servant relief from this place. Give me clover to lie down in, sweet smells to fill my nose, and warmth for all my days. What is that? Coming into the box? Some sort of hand! 
<Record ends>

3 pears, 4 colors

I saw these pears in the grocery store and thought they were so cute that I had to draw them.  I may do a painting one day, the color variation in the skins was really striking and these vectors don't do them justice.

donut remnants

I accidentally ate my donut before I could draw it.

It was quite good.  I regret nothing.

dark to light: penguins in the snow

Today's sketch assignment was to work from dark to light.  Above is the finished sketch, and a fun gif is below.

I really liked how the tomato basil soup illustration turned out, so I took a stab at my lunch from Thursday - quiche with ham and onions!  The shapes in this one were a lot more challenging to break down, but overall I'm happy with how it turned out.

Continuing my theme of round things today with two abstracted (read: not particularly accurate) petri dishes.

turtle turtle turtle

Some cute turtles.  Continuing in the "dot" style of the bunny from a few days ago.
