3 Sharks Sketch


colored pencil from sketchbook

Today's theme for #SundayFishSketch is our favorite shark. I couldn't settle for just one, because they are all rather magnificent, so I did three. A hammerhead (which is probably my fave), a thresher and a mako.

O Is For Oola


The next drawing from my as of yet unpublished Star Wars A-Z book is for the letter 'O.'

O is for Oola
who danced in Jabba's lair.

I thought that Jabba's pinky finger was a nice touch.

Yellow Perch Sketch, Part 2


ink in sketchbook

Today's yellow perch sketch theme for #SundayFishSketch is to honor Dr. Katie O'Reilly's recent defense thesis. As it so happens, today I was down at the Belle Isle Aquarium doing some volunteer work and snapped a pic of their yellow perches and came home and sketched one of them. Good timing!

Dunkleosteus Sketch


ink in sketchbook

For today's #SundayFishSketch theme I went way back. The theme is to draw fish that we want to see and as so many have already said, I'd love to see just about any fish, I still went to the fossil record. How awesome would it be to see a dunkleosteus? Frightening probably, but fascinating, as well. So, I'll need an armored plated time machine and an armored protected camera and/or sketchbook for this journey.

N is For Nute...


N is for Nute who began
a sizable blockade of lies.

The letter N from my unpublished (maybe someday) Star Wars A-Z book, Yoda is Small and Other Such utterances. Nute Gunray is a fun character to draw.

Ultraman Sketch Cards


Last summer I was asked to do some Ultraman sketch cards for RR Parks Cards and how could I say no to that? These are the pack inserted cards and I will show my Artist Proof cards soon.

Pufferfish Sketch


ink in sketchbook

This week's #SundayFishSkecth is a pufferfish. The theme is fish that have a biomechanical adaptation. I believe that the pufferfish fits this description with its ability to change shape and hopefully, if it's wrong a kind scientist will correct me.

M Is For Maz...

Time for another Star Wars A-Z image from my unpublished book, entitled Yoda is Small and Other Such Utterances.

M is for Maz who
has big adjustable eyes.

This was the very first drawing that I did for the project. I had in mind a very Edward Gorey look and feel to it, but as you can see, it took off on a path all its own. The spirit is still there, though.

So... I've decided to jump into this t-shirt type stuff and this is my first go at it. Over on my Teepublic page, you can get this as a t-shirt, magnet, sticker, on a coffee mug, etc.

This guy is truly the G.O.A.T. 

So, click here if you must have this goofy goat on your shirt or fridge.

Tuna Sketch


ink in sketchbook

Today's theme for #SundayFishSketch are 'anthropologically important fishes.' One of the first articles that I came upon when looking into this was one from about ten years ago. It is now believed that early man fished in the open sea far earlier than previously thought, as far back as 42,000 years. In a cave in East Timor scientists discovered the oldest fish hooks ever found (I drew them much bigger than they were) in a cave that also had remains of tuna and other fish. These hooks were made from bone and didn't say what they used as bait, but as discovered, they were successful at fishing.
