Kimono


I've been thinking about this project for awhile, and have discarded several compositions/layouts already. Inspired by traditional Japanese painting, and all of the wonderful Japanese papers. I think it turned out pretty well, but I wish I had gone in with a better idea of how I wanted the colors to work together. This is a digital collage made in Photoshop, but I'd love to make a real one. There's just something about the real 3D element (however slight) that you get with actual layered papers, not to mention the added depth of metallic papers.

Airplane Sketch


Did this sketch two weeks ago on an airplane. Just used a photo from one of the Airline magazines in the seat back pocket for reference. Lost a TON of detail in the scan...guess I learned my lesson about drawing in light blue colored pencil. Overall not too happy with this at all. Done in under an hour on regular computer paper.

Kimono

Just a quick sketch I did the other night. Not loving the colored version.

Drama Llama

So I am making a scale to measure the level of drama for any given situation (inspired by the crazy drama I have been experiencing recently). It's called the drama llama scale and is measured in number of llamas. I'm still refining the details, and will post a guide to using the drama llama scale sometime in the near future (hopefully). I'm thinking somewhere along the lines of 1 llama = very little drama, while 12 llamas = end of the world. Here is the first part: the drama llama himself. Hope you enjoy it! Just a funny little thing I thought up at work.
