Kids Coloring Page Commission

My friend Stacey Poon, owner of The Trails Eatery  here in San Diego asked me to design a kids coloring page in black & white to use for her restaurant . Of course, this is a dream come true kind of commission for me because I love drawing food with eyeballs. I sent her the black and white versions but here are the colored versions. I love doing commissions like these!

Three Mile Pilot/Dabbers show flyer

This one was pretty fun for me to work on, especially coloring it. Inspired by the name, of course, I had to draw a pilot in a plane.

Craft & Draft – all done!

The Craft and Draft Holiday Bazaar was a great learning experience and networking event for me. Things I learned today:

  1. Make prices easy to read. Keep it simple. Less is more. I can get a little carried away with borders and dollar signs and such. Price tags are not another art form!
  2. Stuff that people can touch with their hands sells quicker – the pins and magnets were a hit! Anything packaged, framed, or otherwise not super accessible is more likely to be ignored. At least for a “grab & go” shopping experience at a busy holiday bazaar.
  3. Bring more cash change. Cards aren’t always the preferred method. Again, with a “grab & go” shopping mentality, cash is king. Next time I’ll be prepared.

I will be listing the pocket mirrors, new magnets & pins, and all original prints on Etsy. I have an old account that needs quite a bit of freshening. What better way to start the New Year with a spruced up online shop?

Now that this show is over, I’m looking forward to a little relaxing, tea, and sending off christmas cards to all my friends and family. I have one illustration commission to finish up this week – and then it’s the official holiday season/break for me!

workin' on stuff

Trying to draw a little every night, to get better at using this tablet. It’s difficult, like scratching your head and rubbing your belly. Very counterintuitive, and as such, progress is slow. Tonights little doodle is a squishy gnocchi vampire bat guy.

First time EVER using a Wacom tablet = mind blown/overwhelmed. No words. So exciting!

Tragedy of the Pond Dweller – animated!

My first attempt at animating one of my comics. This is from “Tragedy of the Pond Dweller” which I first released in a mini-comic in 2007, Pigeon Toad Comics.

Just a little experiment with this new medium. I’ve always wanted to do little animations of my characters, and when Instagram released the video feature (15 seconds max) on Thursday, I thought about trying this out.

The jist of this little comic is that the frog has waited and waited and to no avail. Not a fly in sight to eat, he dies on the pond. Or does he…?

Anyway, enjoy! Hope to bring many more of these soon. They are very addicting to make!

A Penny A Pop

Whenever I am feeling anxious about something, I draw really, really small. Leetle leezards are so leetle. Using a Micron 005 does the job pretty well, but I was just thinking, I would like to try a 003 or smaller, do those exist?A Penny A Pop
