unicycling rabbit

This one is for a potential job. Always wanted to paint a unicycling rabbit anyway.

Looking over my work lately, I guess I'm kinda into rabbits. Not sure how that happened. I've only owned one rabbit in my life. His name was thumper (really original huh?). He was blind and would bite you every time you tried to pick him up. Good times! He eventually ate through some wiring which didn't end so well.

Winter Walk

This one is for some cards I'm doing for the Crafty Wonderland art fair this winter in Portland. It's in watercolor and ink...

character tryouts

This is what my desk looks like as I try to find the right character for the new book that I'm working on. It's a very fun part of the process but it's also really difficult. You have to find the right shapes and details to tell the story correctly.

Once I finish this stage, I try the character out in a few settings to see how they hold up. Sometimes they do, other times I need to go back to the drawing board.

Here's a Work in Progress image. It's called "Lurking". I'm going to post a step by step on this pretty soon. I shot a bunch of photos as I was painting. It's in watercolor on gessoed paper.
