My Work in Progress

A sketchblog where I post a few of my scribbles from a variety of works-in-progress, usually from my rather random personal creativity outside of the daily grind. I occasionally, but not always, post the final artwork.


Fall Fairy

I've been working on various product concepts that deal with fairies and other it wasn't that hard to come up with a quick concept of a Fall Fairy for tonight's "at home in-progress" sketch. Particularly after the lovely cool weather we had the last few days and the nice soaking rain last night. Mmmm...Fall is definitely in the air. Think I might color her tomorrow. Might not. I can do that when it's my stuff. :)

And....nope, looks nothing like what I've actually been working on at the job. Sorry. Or maybe that's a good thing. ha!

Today was the last day at work for one of our China artists. He's going home tomorrow. A really nice guy. He made the most of his temporary visit with us in Texas by traveling as much as he could (time and money-wise) and got to visit some great places - San Francisco, New York, Chicago.... I think the absolute highlight, though, was this past weekend when he went to the
Frank Frazetta Art Museum and got to meet the artist himself. So lucky! Even has the pictures to prove it. What a great memory to take back home!


A Joke I Can Finally Appreciate

I'm not usually appreciative of the fart jokes that seem to be such a part of today's American culture...particularly in recent animated films (why do they ALL have to have one of those added in); but in any case this one from an SNL skit last week had me laughing out loud - although mostly because I'd only finally just seen an episode of Most Haunted over at SJ's. Nope, I don't have cable or satellite - just basic tv for me. My budget could either fit in buying books each month or a cable/satellite subscription...and I chose books for my library instead. :)
