I am an artist and an animator. I play between the things that I find aesthetically pleasing and the things that make me laugh cherry Coke out my nose.

The Good, The Bad, and the Really Ugly: Sketchbook Drawings part 1

I've decided that it's time to put all of the weird stuff from my pile of sketchbooks in one browse-able location for your benefit and mine (but probably not mine. Some of this is pretty decrepit or downright stupid. In fact, my shame is palpable.)

Since there are a ton of these, click on one to enlarge for detail. Hopefully the captions will explain all.

Fat man squashing against the page

Stole this sticker from a shop in Seattle. It now adorns a sketchbook cover.

The beauty of drawing in pencil is that when you make something nice it smudges horribly seconds later


I love Art Nouveau, so I was drawing females with huge hair and using lyrics and titles from songs as illustrative word fodder

Character sketches

Concept sketch for a 3-D installation I was going to do

This is a boob tree

The old man with the hat was walking around the park yelling on his cellphone, and he looked like he belonged in Ocean's Eleven

This is no one in particular and yet it looks like every damn art girl I went to school with

Concept sketch for "Dagon" background

Emperor Siddius

and, apparently, Jar-Jar Binks eviscerated in a way that spells "MassArt Animation." There were worse ones.

Squirrels are psychotic and I want to use one in an animation


Thank God I don't draw ankles and feet like that anymore. There is so much wrong with the anatomy, but it was fun using a real ranged pencil set.


  1. No shame, it made me laugh ...esp. the awkward art kids vs. BU/Northeastern Ugg brigade! OK, mostly all of it...

  2. Ah yes, the Ugg brigade...a visual treasure-trove that we Bostonians know so well.

    Thanks for browsing, I should have tons more up soon!

  3. Makes me want to post sketches gleaned from tuning out during dull critical studies classes...screaming bunnies, chimpanzies with bad combovers, etc...but I shouldn't browse this at work, I laugh too loud!
