totoro forest project

Word is out and the site is up! The Totoro Forest Project is an amazing project and a wonderful looking site...check it out. Here's the description I submitted for the piece I contributed...

The supernatural feel of Totoro and the playful spirit they bring make me reminisce to when I was a child. ‘Imaginary’ friends, excavating my backyard, hide and seek, all of these fun activities were part of my daily routine. Recent news of floods around the world that have devastated peoples lives, interrupted children’s daily routines have deeply saddened me, so I wanted to do a piece where my Totoro are acting as guardians, protectors to these children.

'Hold On' 10x21 Tradigital (pencil, pen, ink and a computer)

Everyone's work looks really great...I can't wait to see it in person. It's been my pleasure.

heads

Remember that 'Head 1' post a while back? A complete failure, I know. I wanted to draw a head a week but I've been busy with doing laundry. I'm jump starting it again though! This time I'll draw a head a week (maybe 2), on their own page, and combine it with the previous one to see if they can get along. I'm excited! Here is the first happy couple...

you're ugly

Here's one of the many plane doodles I did at this years mocca festival in NYC. I got excited about adding a video so here it is. Enjoy. Oh and come by and visit the Out Of Picture booth in San Diego this year and we'll do all kinds of doodling in your books =]
