IF-crooked

I drew pigs. I love pigs. Their little crooked tails are all kinds of fantastic...and they have such dainty little feet prancing along. I'm dying to go to color on this, but been nothing but busy for the last few days...I'm not complaining...this glass is half full AND it's full of whiskey!

Sláinte! Salute! Kanpai!

The sketch....
 

....and the inking.... 
....and hopefully, I'll get around to color...fingers crossed!

IF-burst

Helium and cats don't mix.

I have no idea why this was the first image I thought of when I saw the prompt....maybe too many stories about 40 pound cats and 75 pound doxies on the news....It has been making me laugh all day.

sketch.


inking...

...and final...pop!

IF-imagination

This is not from my imagination. My friend Billy Beck came up with this one when he was about 8. He decided that his toothfairy wore a pinstriped suit and carried a briefcase full of teeth. The image has haunted me for 30 some odd years.

Here's the sketch....I originally had delusions of doing a full blown, full page illustration. Then, I realized that I had no desire to draw the kid.


...and the inking....
.....and final.
Had a chance to play with one of my favourite artist friends and all around good guy this week....he's over at http://duckduckgorilla.blogspot.com/

I covet his color technique.
