Rob Semple week

 So tonight's post is Rob Semple. Rob is finishing up in boulder this week to pursue a concept job in a friend's new company Six Minute. Scribbled this tonight real quick cause some of the ones I had done weren't working. Gonna try and do a better one before the end of the week(maybe... it's a tough week)

These 2 are very early ones I did last year. Do like the one on the left.
alt version of 1 - different eyes and nose
Hope you kick ass at the new job Rob!

Bill Murray!

Quick sketch of Bill Murray I did today. It's a prelim for an idea for the boulder art blog. This month is ghostbusters.... so I HAVE to nail it!


Quick post it drawing. Did this last week while scribbling for the Irish sketchers thing on facebook. Will work on the colours, but I had a crazy night last night.... so I'm wrecked now.

Half past danger!!!

So Stephen Mooney's Half Past Danger is finally out tomorrow!!! I've been working on a proper pic for it, but good old work happened tonight and we're all celebrating tomorrow night! So just incase, I just scribbled this real quick.

Can't wait for the book - it's gonna be excellent!

Here's a preview of the first 10 pages too. - Half Past Danger

Joe Loftus

Tonight's monday mate is Joe Loftus. Joe is one of the newest animators in Boulder.

This is an  earlier attempt of the final pic.

These were the very early tries. The one on the right, I was trying to push the use of shapes.

Irish Sketch Post

Here we go again. This is my submission for this weeks theme for the Irish sketch society. "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles"

Originally drawn during a production meeting, Mikey isn't my favourite, but the nunchucks are class to draw.

Wanted the pic to have that "splash card" feel from cartoons. Pretty happy with it in the end.

Late night post!

Up late for some reason, so I figured I'd post the Tuesday pic now. Used my phone to edit some of this on the way home yesterday.

Madden Monday!

Today's monday mate is Paul Madden! I've known Paul for years, but in the last while we've worked together on Randy Cunningham. Paul is finishing up soon to move to Finland with his family.

So I had to post my attempts at him before he left.

 Still not sure if I nailed it. This second drawing is closer to what I was thinking, stlye wise, but I know it's not really working.

Different approach altogether.

  Last of the designs I thought were decent enough to get posted.

Hope you have a major adventure Madden, wishing you good luck to you and your family!

Iron Man

Here's is the early sketch I did for the Iron man theme on the irish sketchers blog. Needs a little more work, but it was getting there. (...it never made the blog, in the end :( ....)

Life Drawing

Here's some life drawing from April 16th. This was another session where at the end I returned to  blind drawings. I added some blocking later in photoshop.


The return to blind drawing for the rest of the session.

 I am really happy with the last 2. This was the first time I ever drew using my left hand and I think they really worked.
Exploring the torso and back.

Particularly happy with this.

Eoghan Dalton!

 I've posted some of these before, but this first one was from an earlier version of the "monday mate" theme I was playing around with. It's the one and only Eoghan Dalton!

This one is from my first year in boulder. This looks nothing like him really, other than the fringe. They can't all be winners, but I like the drawing itself. (Sorry Dalton)

This is the version I love the most, I posted this originally when I did it and it always makes me want to do more of these.
And finally, this is old too, but I like it.

Random Design

Here's a design I did for a project awhile ago. Found it on my machine at lunch today. Thought it would make a nice post.
