Class of 3000_development


Hey ya'll, thought I would leak some more development pieces I did for Class of 3000. The actual style will not be posted until air date of Nov 2006. This piece is from a redevelopment phase we were in for about a week @ the end of 05. Received well by most but not by the man, so it had just become some nice wall art here @ the studio. Thought ya'll might enjoy such eye candy

cheers!

A True Genius- Richard Morris






I want to take a moment to send a thank you to an amazing teacher,new friend, and great guy;Richard(Rick) Morris.
I have been taking private classes w/him and my Mom for some time now.Every Saturday I hunker down in my Mom's studio
and soak up the knowledge of this young master painter and illustrator. I am completely blown away by not only the mastery of his craft, but how well he communicates such an endless discipline. I have so far to go w/my painting skills but I feel I have finally strolled out onto the path and w/his guidance and mentoring I know I will grow and blossom. I was impressed with him since day one but finally see the light as I am slowly, but steadily, gaining confidence in my painting and it is b/c of his teaching.
He teaches @LAAFA in the San Fernando Valley and I strongly suggest you check out his site to find out more info on this absolutely fantastic artist and impressive teacher. I only hope you all get to experience his classes and his knowledge along your personal quest for greatness, b/c he will surely get you there.

Lunch Sketches


Here is a page from my lunch time sketch session today, Monday MArch 20th. It was quite cold out there, and we lost part of our crew today to the conditions.... me and my bro, Mark McDonnell, held down the fort and drew through the blistering chill, drawing w/frostbite can be an unforseen aid @ times

ENJOI!

Zebras Everywhere!!!


Here is one of my 9X12 sketchbook pages from my lunch zoo trip this Tuesday. These sketches are no bigger then 1 inch and are no longer 1 minute each... I drew them this small to capture their pose and shapes and wanted to limit my choices.
Felt it was a successful exercise, so I hope to do more very soon

Isys


I was contacted via my website about a month ago by a writer who loved my work. He commissioned me to do an illustration of his star character "Isys". His direction was very specific and well thought out, everything from the pose to the outfit,hair and expression had to be dead on. I have never really done any type of comic character piece so I took the gig @ a cut rate b/c it sounded interesting. Needless to say I was happy w/the outcome for as quickly as I did it and the client, Tehron Freeman, was very impressed which makes me know I did my job well.
You can read up more about this project @ his site: http://www.isys1002entertainment.com/
