Was invited for an almost impromptu zoo sketching session yesterday by Mike DelMundo and Vince Chui. We tromped around the Toronto Zoo for most of the day, putting up with temperatures reaching a high of 37 C / 99 F, and then had to put up with an amazing about-face with buckets of rain and hail on the way home! But we did have a great time sketching the animals, and talking about illustration and stuff. Watch the guys’ blogs to see their sketches when they post them!

Finally colored her up over the weekend. Brush pen with colors in Photoshop.
Interesting story behind the piece, originally she had a face but while I was inking her I realized that the piece had a lot more meaning for me if I removed it. The idea of ‘princess’ is floating around in my head and I may or may not do something with it – depends if and when I get the time to work on anything of my own again. Alas, these days I’m lucky to be able to do an ink drawing or two before I have to get back to work-work.
I was asked to submit some stuff to MOCHA (Mueseum of Childrens Art) in Oakland, CA, for consideration into their Once Upon a Time show. The show features art by childrens book illustrator, and the art they created when they were kids.
These are some of my really old drawings and paintings, done when I was 12-14. Though most of my early works make me cringe these days, I personally am still fond of the underwater dragons one, which is going to be in the show. More details later.
