Someone asked if I could post a larger version of my Journey sketch so here it is! It’s a pretty small sketch to begin with but definitely still a favourite.

Yes, Journey! Such a gorgeous game, I can never get over how lovely everything looks while still being so simple. I always find it curious that any art I see for this game only has a single figure, since one of the most effective parts is the two-player aspect.

Does Tekkon Kinkreet count? I haven’t really watched many cartoons.

A little sketch I did based on a dream I had where I was a small homeless kid with a giant black dog. We had to sneak into houses at night to find a place to sleep and I stole a giant loaf of bread with blue sprinkles on it and it was the best bread ever, though I don’t remember much else.

Sketches for one of the tattoos I’m working on, this one involves a turning bull.

It’s been far too long since I’ve updated this little sketchblog, but I finally have time to sketch things again. Here’s a sketch commission for pluww, who asked for a cat playing with some swallows. I’ve spent so much time drawing people over the past semester that I’d almost forgotten how much fun animals can be to draw.

As much as I do love Assassin’s Creed, Legend of Zelda definitely wins out! Though I’ve only ever played through parts of the various games, lacking my own console, it’s one of my absolute favorites and with any luck I’ll get to play them all the way through sometime.

Warm-up sketches

Hey everyone! Sorry for the lack of updates, been struggling with a nasty art block but it’s slowly being overthrown. I thought it might be fun to do another series of rough sketch requests like last summer just to keep me making things and help me get back into gear. So send me a note with an idea and I’ll do one a day for a week or something. We’ll see how it goes!

More schoolwork, we had to do a cover for a future issue of American Illustration and I chose 88. I’ll post the finished version when the semester is over!

I did a study of the little girl from The Spirit of the Beehive, from a screenshot, and then tried to draw her as a young woman while still keeping a resemblance.
