Not much to see without my weekly themes to prod me to create but I went back to work at one of my local casinos slinging cards so the dust is still settling from that. Once I'm comfortable with my new daily structure and routine I'll start doing more personal sketching that's not gig/project related. I'm a bit behind on things so it's nothing but catch-up for this old bastard for the next few weeks.

I don't want to just post about my daily ho-hums though as I'm sure the majority of the folks that come here regularly do so (hopefully) for the art. A while back I was asked to do a cover for an upcoming Sheena book. In the end my ideas didn't seem to click with the folks calling the shots so I never moved beyond the thumbnail sketch stage with it. I really wish something in this batch had worked for them because I would've loved to have a Sheena cover under my belt but some things just aren't meant to be I guess. Just as a sidenote: This is the MOST thumbnail sketching I've ever had to do for something that didn't see completion.


  1. That is really strange that they had you go through SO MANY thumbnails and none passed muster. I particularly dig the last one with the big elephant - think that would have been a dynamic choice.

  2. Wow, all that and nothing from the higher-ups? It almost looks like they used you to get some free/cheap consulting work...I do hope that wasn't the case.

    At any rate, it looks great. The very first one looks like it got the point across pretty well.

  3. love the one where shes riding an elephant!! what a woman!!
