How I draw

May 13, 2010

Many people have asked about how I draw and what my process is, so I’ve finally recorded a short video of me drawing an coloring a character in vectors. I know my results often look simple and clean, but there’s a lot more work and adjustments as I go along than many people realize, I hope you enjoy the insight and maybe I’ll do some more of these, it was quite fun.

For drawing in photoshop, I also have a time-lapse video this video from when I was working on Pickin’ Time.

Original Artworks

January 23, 2010

A selection of my original painitings and drawings are now for sale to a good home. There’s only one of each, so first come, first serve. Each painting comes with a random hand-drawn sketch, a signed certificate of authenticity and my eternal thanks (what more could you want?).

Ollie the Twitterrific Bird

January 11, 2010

Ollie, the Twitterrific mascot, is now shipping worldwide. He was first previewed at San Diego Comic-Con, but now he’s arrived for sale to everyone! Ollie comes in two editions: a normal vinyl version for just $19.95 and a limited-edition flocked (fuzzy) version available for $26.95.

The Ollie character and the vinyl figure were designed by me and produced by the Iconfactory through StrangeKiss Toys. Head on over to the Iconfactory store and to order one!

Four prototypes for the upcoming Twitterrific vinyl toy that I designed are being auctioned as a set. Check the Iconfactory for more information and details! Happy bidding!

Bill the Yeti

February 12, 2009

For the last few months I’ve been working on a few new toy projects to follow up the tremendous fun I had with Zog. But with Zog being the first toy for both me and Strangekiss, we didn’t do any accessories and focused mainly on the figure itself and learning the production process and it’s various steps. To one-up myself a bit, I’m hoping to have multiple toys out this year (both with accessories) and first of them will be Bill the Yeti from the drawing King of the Castle.


My Setup

For anyone that is interested in what hardware and software I use on a daily basis, I was just interviewed by waferbaby about just that.


December 5, 2008

I’ve had the great pleasure of being added to the ranks of designers at Infectious. They create vinyl stickers to decorate your walls, laptop, iPhone, and even your car! They chose a few of my existing drawings for stickers and I’m definitely looking forward to doing some custom artwork with them in the future. I hope they brighten up your gear and surroundings!
