Found these on the internet. These are
"ligers" a mix between a male lion and female tiger and claims to be the largest cat in the world, up to 800 pounds. I just could not get over the size of these animals. And to think La Brea boasted of having even larger big cats in the pits, and Asia and Europe, some of the largest in the world. These photos give me a feeling of the size, power, awe of the big cats of the past. To think they came even larger than this...!

Found this page in an old sketchbook. This was done about a year ago at a friend's house. Horses were the first thing I learned how to draw when I could hold a pencil.

Some roughs I sent to MGA. Apparently they now want an inteview. Since I have a very active 5 year old daughter and sketch her a lot, these drawings came out naturally. I have several fun sketches of Sienna and her friends that I have done over the last couple of years. My sketch books are chock full off'm.

A quick drawing for a company who asked me to do some designs for solarized lawn ornaments. I just did it tonight.
These will be the covers of the pamphlets that will be put in with the religious dolls. They were built in Illustrator. There are more, but not worth showing. Greg helped me with these, as we fumbled around in Illustrator, screaming at the monitor. Yet we learned a lot. That is the important thing.

Here are some illustrations I did for a toy company. This represents hundreds of drawings submitted since Sept. I also did toys, turnarounds, etc for each character. I am almost ashamed of this work because it is hack work at best. Bad anatomy choices, bad use of perspective, tangents galore, etc. The top of each illustration is left open for type and I was asked to tone down and simplify values. These are tiny illustrations for packaging and will be pitched towards children 4 years and younger. I did not chose the color schemes for the characters. I felt like a ferrari stuck in first gear!

For vince and has been awhile. Been juggling two big freelance jobs; one which just ended. i have been celebrating by...sleeping. Also been jumping into the difficult and frustrating Illustrator. Here is a Bratz test i am submitting to MGA today.
