Happy Halloween y'all!
Well the season for themes is around and I found myself drawing this cat. He's a bad kitty that has an affinity for candy. The one on the right was a concept that I didn't finish, but those two actually stole candy from trick-or-treators, but only from the teenagers that are too old and should have stopped years ago.
Wild Turkey for Dinner
A friend of mine travels 45 minutes out of town to hunt turkeys, the same type of turkeys that invade his neighborhood. Ironic. So he took some photos and sent them my way.
OK, so this is a snapshot and not a scan... I was feeling lazy and didn't want to turn on the confounded printer. This was a sketch of a posed stock photo I found on deviantart.com , which has some great resources AND artists.
Doggy Fro Picks?
I saw a photograph of show poodle yesterday that looked like the drawing on the right. We are dog people in this house so "that" this dog was sculpted like a rich mans shrub was not so astonishing, it was the height and body of the fur! It was over a foot off the top of its head. So with my imagination struggling to understand what this dog looked like before his hair-cut, I came up with with the BEFORE drawing to illustrate what he probably looked like before his trip to doggy super-cuts!
I wonder if I could pick up a doggy-afro-pick at Pet-Smart?

I read somewhere that the more you push a drawing the better the results. I would give credit if I could remember who said this for no other reason that I would like see how much they pushed their work. I know a it was Disney animator talking about creating lively characters. It is totally a strange notion to think that those old school animators drew frame-by-frame characters that had unique personalities.
Formal Presentation of Birds (Mostly Roosters)
Here is the original series. I was thinking it would look great in a 36 inch wide dark frame with a few inches of molding or even custom molding for each of these 8 drawings. Check out the entire series here!
Tree Frogs Are Cute (from a distance)
This little guy was a quick sketch on poor quality paper that I revisited and spruced up worthy enough to be posted. Tree frogs are amazing; perhaps from a distance or as an illustration than in person because I have no interest in finding out which ones are poisonous.
You know, if Kermit was a tree frog, Ms. Piggy would back off a lot more...
Seabright Rooster Facebook Profile Picture
A Seabright Rooster... There are some intriguing roosters out there. All underrated or course; for no other reason that they crow in the early morning (and all day long), and because eggs "causing" cholesterol is still an issue (do they or do they not? and do I really care? and no I do NOT, TYVM). Ultimately, these unique birds are glanced over because they are common, but if you saw a toucan in real life you would stop, admire it, take out your iphone, take a shot and make it your FB profile and then "like" your own status.
Real Steel Hot Rod
This was a drawing for my father in law. He's always talking about how he was into hot rod racing back in the day (when "The Hop" was the place to go). The title Real Steel came from what my father-in-law would refer to as the "real" real steel, if he ever saw that rock em sock em robot movie with Wolverine... You tell 'em Mike!
