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.

Putting it all together...


Today's quick sketch -- designing a personal flying machine. Hey, why not? Great for summer flights of fancy! Having a bit of fun concepting a kind of "one-man band" contraption that has all the bells and whistles for flying. I wonder if I could get it to work...hmm. With all of the "continuing education" experience with my I.D. textbooks, you never know. Yeah, all that studying is making my brain hurt.

This week will have to be my last push to wrap up some of my personal concept projects for my portfolio. It's supposed to be a bit rainy still, so hopefully I will get everything wrapped up like I've got scheduled. This weekend required some at home time on a set of illustrations for work, so I didn't spend the time I'd originally planned for portfolio updates. Ah, well. Also, I have some more freelance illustration work starting in the next couple of weeks for more textbooks, so I really need to get my latest personal stuff finished and everything updated for my portfolio like I've been wanting to for the past few months. Ok, it's been quite a bit longer than that. sigh. I probably will pause the daily mini-sketches for a while so that I can use that 30 minutes or hour (maybe 2) after work to squeeze in time on my book projects again. As it is, I've stopped watching tv except for morning and evening news....
And no games. D'oh!

Cute personal flying machine. :) Good luck getting your portfolio updated. I know how hard it can be to find time to do your own art amidst freelance work for clients.

Glad you all like!

The freelance work did start this week, so I'll be a bit absent on the blog...well, more than usual. Freelance illustration as my "second job" on top of my weekly regular product design work will definitely make my portfolio have to take a back seat...just for a few weeks. Some of the best Disney artists did the same thing, not that I'm in that league...yet. In any case, I'm just happy that my clients keep coming back and asking for more. :)
