I did a couple of illustrations for Mon Mag a Moi. They are like games you see on the back of cereal boxes, the ones where you have to find errors. The theme was dessert, so I did them and sent them off to the client. Here's the kicker... the theme wasn't desserts but desert! So I had to do another set!! So, I saw the sun come up a few times this week and got to post a few more illustrations on this blog. Here's the 2 sets and a close up.
By the way, there's 7 errors!

These illustrations will be found in the magazine QUAD9 for a story about the galactic games of 2090, on Saturn. The athletes get infected by space dust and the doctors find out about a remedy from the Saturnians. It was nice to work on a story that touches current events: the H1N1 and the upcoming winter games.
I tried to keep the illustrations simple with a limited palette. They are on a beige background because I wanted to show you how I cut them. I can't wait to see them printed!

Here's a few illustrations I worked on last month for CFORP's new magazine, Minimag. They're going to publish at least 2 other issues that I hopefully will have the chance to work on. Later this year, all the stories and illustrations will be gathered into a huge book so teachers can read along with the kids. The illustrations really changed from the beginning to the end of the project. The characters and over feel needed to be ajusted quite a bit. Check out the first character sketches and the finished product!

Happy Halloween everyone. This month' sketchy business theme was Halloween. I decided to draw Donnie Darko... It's Halloween at the end of the film, so it fit the theme! Here's the full illustration and some sketches I did from screencaps of the film. None of them really look like Jake Gyllenhaal, but I wasn't trying to do a portrait or anything like that.
The publisher of the science magazine I am working for decided to make a completely different mag aimed towards a younger audience. So they asked me to revamp my comic strip designs to be kid friendly. Here's the new designs and some visuals from the first and second issues, as well as the full 2 other comics.

Heres a book cover I've been working on for CFORP. The story's called Berger du Soleil and it's about a bunch of kids and their teacher hiking through the hills of Syria and meeting a sheperd who uses the sun to tell time. Oh yeah, and coloring lines takes forever, I don't know how my buddies colored all their lines for their student animated film... troopers.

Here's a few illustrations I'm working on for a short story published in Mon Mag a Moi. I toned them the same way I did for my samurai comic, but turns out they have to be colored! I'll add the colors during the week and repost these bad boys when they're done... stay tuned!
Here's a few panels from a comic series I've been working on for the last few weeks. I took out the speech bubbles because they are a little distracting. The blades on top of his machine are glowing because they're spanking new. Both the full comics will be featured in the magazine Tremplin.
July's theme for Sketchy Business was Mythology, I didn't have time to polish these, but the idea still gets across (I hope). I had quite a few other Myths that I wanted to interview. Big foot could of told us how he just isn't photogenic and really doesn't mean to take blurry pictures. A really chubby fairy could of told us about the social pressures of being a thin, graceful disney-esque fairy. I might still throw these on paper another day... But for now you have the Unicornboy, Faongirl and Mr Ogre.
