Flier Fish Sketch


ink in sketchbook

So, today's #SundayFishSketch theme is one that may help out a young artist from the Twitterverse. He had a school project where the students needed to draw three objects that had the letters 'ie' and the sound of 'eye.' He wanted to include a fish for this assignment, but was having a hard time with it. It was harder to find fish that meet this criteria than I would have thought, but I went with a flier fish, which are a species of freshwater sunfish. Fun to draw.

I Is For IG-88


Ok, let's keep this Star Wars Friday illustration thing going. This piece is 'I is for IG-88 who had one big red eye,' from my unpublished SW A-Z book entitled Yoda is Small and Other Such Utterances.

This is something that I began fooling around with awhile ago and finally finished. Just goofing around with this one, really, but who wouldn't want to see a Frankenstein from Death Race 2000?

Sketch Of A Marshall Fredericks Koi Sculpture


5x8 pencil sketch from sketchbook

I had missed the past couple of weeks of the #SundayFishSketch, so it is good to be back in the swing with this week. This week's theme are fish that are a model from a museum or exhibit. My sketch is from a photo I took of a Marshall Fredericks koi sculpture that I was assisting in the conservation/maintenance of at the Cranbrook Academy of Art a few years ago.

H Is for Han...


So, now that all that Inktober stuff is done, I shall resume posting drawings (usually on a Friday) from my unpublished Star Wars A-Z book, Yoda is Small and Other Such Utterances. 

H is for Han who goes on
and on about his Kessel Run.

Of course, misspelled above.

Iron Man Commission

Recently, I did two commissions for a client, one that I cannot show at this time, because it is part of a bigger project. But, I can show this one. Robert Downey, Jr. as Iron Man. It had been some time since I last did an ink wash and after a brief moment of hesitation and awkwardness, I was back in the swing of things. This was a fun job, for sure.

Final Inktober Dump


As I was up in Traverse City this weekend for the Cherry Capital Comic Con, which went very well, I fulfilled my Inktober pledge and finished the remaining three. And I was quite busy at my table, too!

So, we have 'Patch' for Friday, 'Slither' for Saturday and finally, 'Risk' for Sunday. 

And that concludes my participation in this year's Inktober. It was entertaining.
