Zombie Ben Franklin

Dead End Press, once again hosted an amazing Zombie Founding Fathers Sketch Jam. Each participant had 5 hours to complete a piece featuring a founding father. In my case, I got to re-animate Benjamin Franklin. This was drawn in pencil, photographed with my iphone, and colored in ArtStudio for ipad. Enjoy!

More iPad Artwork

Here is an assortment of ipad art that I have been playing around with this past month.

Hit Juleps Porter

I recently made a really fun label for my girlfriend, Laura's home-brew. I figured that a Mint Julep Porter should have a clever and funny name. "Hit Juleps" was born, drawing inspiration from Frank the Tank in the comedy film,Old School. Once it hits juleps, it so good!

Dead End Press

This was the first time that I was asked to draw a caricature in a specific style. These were inspired by the drawing style of Dan Clowes. The subjects are Nate and Jordan, the founders of Dead End Press in Seattle.

Perfect Strangers

Here is the final product and the process video for my Hulk and Wolverine drawing. This was drawn in the span of 2.5 hours with the SketchClub app for ipad.

New iPad Caricature Tutorial

This tutorial details my entire process from start to finish. The app I'm drawing in is called ArtStudio. If you are interested in learning a few tricks, buy the app and feel free to draw along with me! Special thanks go out to Eman Evans for letting me draw him.

You have 5 hours to design a character....

This was the idea behind Dead End Press' Steampunk Art Show. We were given a synopsis for a character and in the span of 5 hours, we were locked in a studio drawing. Once the 5 hours were up, we met back up for an art show attended by friends, family and casual art appreciators.
My submission was pretty unique, as it was all drawn on an ipad. My piece was interactive and definitely captivated the curiosity of the show's visitors, resulting in me winning 3rd Place in the character design contest. So here is my contribution to the show. This was set in Victorian England and the protagonist is a musician that uses a sound based weapon to defend England against the villainous Mole People.

ipad Process Video

This video was made using SketchClub's record feature. This amazing app will record your entire drawing process and then you have the option to speed things up and add music! The inspiration for the drawing was my friend Sarah's daughter, Mira. Enjoy!

Plus Size Wonder Woman

The drawing itself was completed in ArtStudio, the background in SketchClub. I'm going to start mixing it up between drawing apps because they both have wonderful things to offer.

iPad Caricatures

Samsung Galaxy Note Caricatures

Over the past month I have been part of a promotion involving the new Samsung Galaxy Note phone/tablet. Every weekend I have been drawing free caricatures on the phone for mall customers. The app that I have been drawing with is called "S Note", a very basic drawing app that has created all kinds of interesting challenges. Overall, this has been a very rewarding experience that has taught me many interesting shortcuts with my digital drawings. Each caricature took around 10 minutes to draw. Enjoy!
