So I've started yet another sketchbook. This one has a special purpose. It's my elephant sketchbook. I've done something like this before. The basic idea is to fill a sketchbook with just one animal. This really helps to start understanding the anatomy of the animal and just how far I can push a drawing. It also helps me to make new shapes and take a different approach at things. After I've done 10 or so elephants I start looking for new ways of drawing them, or things I'd missed in the past. It's really alot of fun to try and draw a completely different elephant everyday. Some days work better than others but I'm having alot of fun learning. here's five of the first ones. Plenty more to come. If you really want to see some cool elephant drawings go check out Andrew Shek's blog elephantart.blogspot.com . Gorgeous stuff. Enjoy.

The company I work for, Ninja Bee, is making the Doritos Unlock Xbox game. It's a fun project. Basically a dinosaur runs around destroying buildings and trying to eat a Doritos delivery truck. Doritos is documenting the whole process and the latest video just got released online. I'm in a few parts of it so I thought I would pass it along. It's pretty fun stuff. You should know that the mustache in the video is a result of Mustache March a contest we did here at work. It was my idea to get everyone at work to grow a hideous mustache. It was pretty fun. They decided to incorporate it into the video so you all get to see me in my hideous mustachioed glory. Anywho, enjoy the video.

This is a painting I just completed yesterday. When my family and I moved into the house we're in now we made the kids bathroom have a surf/hawaiin theme. I looked at it and thought, this room needs a couple of paintings, so voila here you go. I hope this doesn't make my kids afraid to take baths for fear of sharks. Enjoy.

This is a sketch from my latest sketchbook. I bought a new larger one. Most of my drawings seem to be small and leave no room for detail or for spontaneity. I decided a larger sketchbook would help me overcome some of that. I really like this drawing. More to come. Enjoy.

This is just a little something I've started playing around with. It started out as just a little sketch at church and then I decided I would like to see this one colored up a bit more. I'm not very confident in my painting skills, so I'm using this as an excuse to try and learn a bit more about color and painting. this is just a work in progress that you see here. I'll try and get it up again as it comes together. Enjoy.
