Sketchdump number whatever...

Two styles - quintessential fifties scratchiness (still trying to nail a good drybrush/rough pastel in Photoshop) and a method completely aping Tracy Butler, because her art is like crack.

Fiddling around with some shading techniques:

Cheesecake of the day:

This is Morgs. He's one of my parents' two Australian terriers. He's also a very sick little guy.
On Saturday, he woke up with his legs paralysed and unable to walk. My parents immediately suspected the curse of Eastern Australian dog-lovers - the paralysis tick. Sure enough, a 3-day tick was found on his leg that had been missed and its neurotoxin had hit him big time. He's now in his forth day of veterinary intensive care, completely physically paralysed and suffering aspiration pneumonia (the big side-effect killer). He can't even close his eyes from the paralysis. Luckily, he has around-the-clock care by some amazing vets, without whom he'd surely have died. He's not out of the woods yet by a long way, but I've been worrying about him constantly and felt like sketching him in his normal, ball-of-energy way. Maybe some healing karma will reach him.

Drink n Drawage

Fruits of a Drink n Draw last Sat. night. I had ice cream sundae :)

There was rodeo playing on the bar TV...

Lady watching the NAIL-BITING game of pool in progress.

Oh, and also...

In stores now, the conclusion to Tina's story. I confess it's hard to get excited about it knowing that this is basically it for Divalicious! for the forseeable future. I have some other smaller stories in progress for various Tokyopop anthologies, but to be honest, I'm totally refocusing back on animation, thanks to my fledgling new freelance(for now!) job - Assistant Animator at LAIKA/house's 2D dept.
Small, multi-talented and packed with pet weimeraners, I'm loving it. Maybe if I work hard enough I'll get a desk :)
