Civil War Fruit Pig, Girl, and Mystery Frog

Above is a pig. I was taking a page out of the book of an artist Ross showed me ages ago.... whose name I cannot remember. So I drew a fruit hat on the pig. Then I thought "Hey, he'd look wicked awesome in a cape." And so, a cape was drawn. Then I thought "Hey, cutlasses go really well with capes!" and so on, etc etc. What resulted is a pig that looks like he's a general of some sort in the civil war and is for some reason also wearing a fruit hat.

Below is a girl I drew. Then I drew that frog next to her... though I'm not sure why. I think I was just drawing without really thinking about what I was drawing and halfway through decided on a frog. He's not really done, but he looked way too pleasant to leave out. That's a nice way of saying I was too lazy to edit him out in photoshop.

Dinosaurs and Wood Nymphs But Not at the Same Time

Just some Dinosaurs and wood nymphs.... More stuff from dinner break at work. The dinosaurs are just dinosaurs, T-Rex and Triceratops. The wood nymphs are slightly more original I suppose. There's just something novel about a race of little creatures that wear little kilts and head-dresses made from leaves.

Jordie and Mitch






I've been doing some more drawings of Jordie, the world's strongest 8 year old lately as I try and figure out what exactly it is I'm going to do with him. I ended up sketching out this guy here, his best buddy/coach Mitch.

Di

These are just some rejected character designs I did a while back for a recurring fictitious character in a university paper here in Ottawa (The Fulcrum). The column was called Dear Di, and it was a sex advice column. I found the old designs again and realized that hey, they're actually pretty okay. Figured I'd put them here.

Crush

I thought it'd be cool to try and just do illustrations to albums, listening to them on repeat while I drew. I want to do 3 of them over the next few weeks, and this is the first one which I drew while listening to Radiohead's 'The Bends'.

Dragonball

I got in the mood for sketching fanart, so I put these guys together at work. I loved Dragonball. The original one anyway, back before everyone could fly and blow up planets. The one where they didn't spend half the episode yelling and powering up.

Otaku

This is an illustration I did to go along with an article I wrote for Ottawa University's campus newspaper 'The Fulcrum'. The article was about otaku sub-culture and why anime and manga have had such great success worldwide. In keeping with the article's theme, it only seemed logical to draw three of the most recognizable faces in anime. Astro Boy, Totoro and Pikachu.

Tony and Jordie

This is 'Tuf Stuf' Tony Hugo, Olympic weightlifter. He's Jordie's hero. Jordie cuts his hair like him and wears his Tuf Stuf t-shirt everyday while he roams his neighbourhood and lifts things.

Toy Soldiers

Just something I dashed off while eating dinner at work today... I thought they were pretty cool.

Demo Reel

I had a lot of issues with my old demo reel and ended up cutting a new one. Hope you enjoy it!

Rosie




This is a drawing I did for Ottawa U's newspaper The Fulcrum. It's Rosie from the Jetsons with a really fancy beer bong.

Awkward Silence Greetings

Hi. As you may or may not know (probably not, I wouldn't be at all surprised) I have been working on some greeting card ideas. My idea for greeting cards was cards that caused an awkward silence and conveyed the feeling of an awkward silence, rather than having any immediately discernible punchline as I though that was much funnier. In any case, I have a blog page set up for them and as of now I have 4 cards up to be advertised on the page. Here is a link to the page http://awkwardsilencegreetings.blogspot.com/2010/01/first-line.html

And here is a sample of one of the first greeting cards:

Persistance: A Guide to Successful Street Performing

This is my traditionally animated student film called. It was created in the classical animation program at the Vancouver Film School and uses programs such as Adobe Illustrator, Adobe After Effects, Adobe Photoshop, and ToonBoom Harmony, along with an outrageous amount of pencils and paper. And yes, I am aware that Persistance is not spelled correctly. This was ctually done on purpose, and it is a mistake I fear I shall regret forever as people say "Hey Brennan, you know you spelled that wrong, right?"

Persistance: The ruff stuff



These are just a few of the rougher drawings from my student film called 'Persistance'
