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.


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.
