Bad Laundry

When my brother was very young, he told me about a nightmare he had wherein he was chased around the house by an evil creature. The villain of his dream was not your garden-variety monster, witch, or ghost. It was an evil basket of dirty laundry. To eliminate any doubt that it was a malevolent being, the galloping, sentient laundry pile had a neon sign floating over it that read: "BASKET OF DIRTY BAD CLOTHES."

Something reminded me about this today so I drew it:

The subconscious mind is a fascinating thing. Does anyone else have any memorable "dream villains?"

Sketchbook stuff (and my portfolio website)

I finally got around to building my portfolio website. Still working out some of the kinks but it's online now! My latest storyboard sample can be found in the sequential section. Huge thanks to Chris for helping me get this set up.

I also scanned a few more sketchbook doodles and played with some of them in Photoshop.

These are some folks I saw in and around It's a Grind:

And these are some quick brush pen memory-sketches of a guy I saw while at a friend's b-day celebration at Red Lion Tavern. The room we were in was crowded to capacity (because Jeremy is so darn popular) and most people were busy eating/drinking/chatting. Everyone was sitting down except for this lone tall guy in a brown Hawaiian shirt who stood in the corner, slowly eating his food while glowering at the rest of us. He sometimes paused to read aloud from the book he brought, but he mostly just did this:

I wasn't scared of him...

I swear....
