Hey! I'm an Illustrator in New Yawk City.

Day 44 - Have you ever noticed how groups of tourist kids on the subway all wear New York City gear? (Hats, shirts, fanny packs, etc, that say “Brooklyn” or “NYC.”) It’s like a giant, glittering bulls-eye! But, these tourists are always so nice, and usually start conversation with me or ask for directions.
Here is a group of tourist kids. (I wish I hadn’t made the fat kid so frog-like, though. Sorry, fat kid.)

- What should we do next: Something good, something bad? Bit of both?- We’ll follow your lead, Star-Lord.- A bit of both!

Wasn’t Guardians of the Galaxy such a good movie? Man. I loved it. This color palette breakdown is pretty great.

Day 43 - It’s Monster Monday! (If that’s not already a thing, I’m making it a thing.) Time to get back to work. :(

Here’s another bubble-gum sketch! (This one is a little sweeter than the mullet-dude.)
I’m trying to practice different styles of drawing. For this sketch, I wanted to focus on shape and color. I’m also doing more homework and referencing animators who inspire me. I found an amazing artist online who really mastered a simple color palette and use of line. When I find her blog again, I’ll repost her work.

Day 42 - A dude blowing bubble gum, with the wind wisping through his mullety hair!

P.S. The brilliant Dan Cassaro had a much more eloquent response to this stupid email. 

Ha! Perfect answer.

Day 41 -  A quick sketch of a wiley old man I saw on the subway this morning. He had a perfect gnome-like beard, a straw hat, and bright green shorts. He was reading a (Stephen King?) book, but kept peeping over the top to stare at me.
Something I realized I need to work on - sketching with shapes rather than relying on lines. I fall back on line art too much, and I think I’m missing out on something important. I also want to practice getting better at using color. Just some thoughts.

Day 40 - Back to drawing people of New York City!
Have you ever been on a crowded train, when suddenly, you feel hot panting breath on your shoulder? Then with much trepidation you turn around, and… it’s coming from some poor dog stuffed into a purse? I see dogpurse dogs often and always find them hysterical. I usually end up making direct eye contact with the dog.
Anyway, here’s my sketch of the day - a dogpurse lady and her dog.

I got back from a trip to California last night! I had an awesome week-long vacation with my sister. The flight back, though, was one of the most turbulent trips I’ve experienced. We flew through two storms. In the second storm, it was pitch-black and raining.
Do you remember that old Twilight Zone episode with William Shatner? “Nightmare at 20,000 feet” - where he freaks out and sees a gremlin on the wing of the plane? The gremlin (who is basically just a guy in a fuzzy bear suit with a creepy mask) presses his face against the window to say “Hi” to him. I always wonder if I’ll see one of those guys in a storm. What would it DO? … I would say “hi” back to it. As long as it wasn’t too creepy.
