Spyke the Wonder Dog

Inspired by my in-laws' shitzu, Spyke. He's, um... well how can I put it. He's not the brightest crayon in the box. But he sure is a character. He also has several aliases, often inspired by the neighborhood kids mispronunciations: Spick, Sype, and Spicky Bastardo: Dog Extraordinaire.

Not funny

Lest my blog be characterized as containing only cute animals and pretty girls, here's something to add a little variety.

Developing Roxi

Here are a few super preliminary sketches for Roxi, the next character I'm developing for malestandard.com.

Keep movin'

This is Karma. She's a dachsund who lives across from us and thinks she's in charge of the Neighborhood. Don't loiter near Karma's turf.

Mad

This is my own Mad Hatter. Not based on the Disney animated version, nor on the Tim Burton/Johnny Depp version. My own! The animated Disney version is still supreme. Ed Wynn was born to play that part.

Take that Skeletor!

Little Brother plays He-Man. No matter what he's playing, be it action figures, cars, or Legos, there are always lots of explosions and consequently lots of spitting.

Preschooler

My daughter and I decided to draw together the other day. She wanted us each to draw a little girl. This is my caricature of her, or as she looked as a preschooler. She looks so innocent doesn't she? She only used this expression when she was trying to ingratiate herself to a teacher or ask me for something she wanted.

Welcome to Verdant Arbor Apartments!

If you lived here, you'd be home already.

Boy, this digital painting stuff is hard. Not particularly happy with my technique on this one. I got a little more comfortable towards the end, but the whole thing is much more overworked than I wanted.


For those who missed it, this is based on a sketch I posted a little while ago. Even though I'm not 100% happy with this, I guess it's a worthwhile attempt. Gotta learn somehow.

Cheeky kid

Saw this little girl at my daughter's dance place. She had the funniest little jowly face. Not hanging jowls persay, but they were so flexible they were almost as expressive as the rest of her face.

Introducing Demi

I'm very pleased to be able to share a project I've been working on for a little while now. This is Demi.

She's one of the writers over at a new (and still under construction) website, malestandard.com . I was thrilled to be asked to design Demi, and all of her friends. I'll be posting those friends as the weeks go on, but for now you might want to learn more about Demi. Warning: The writing and much of the subject matter on malestandard.com is very adult, so if you are under 18 or just don't like that sort of thing, please steer clear. Everyone else, click here.

Bubblegum

My daughter has learned to blow bubbles. Look how cool she looks.

Fetch boy!

I guess I have a dragon or two left in my system. This one is a little confused and thinks he's somebody's puppy.

Monkey Business

Today, my favorite webcomic, Space Base 8, celebrates it's first anniversary, and since it is a monkey-centric strip, I've doodled some monkeys today.
There's nothing spacey about them, but there's plenty of spacey monkey business over at Space Base 8, so go check it out!
