Turtle Crossing needs a little help to get animated! Check out the app on Kickstarter to get exclusive rewards, like coloring pages, signed art prints, and more!
The background paintings in old Warner Brothers cartoons were a huge influence on my art, and I always assumed they were a group effort under the guidance of the immortal Chuck Jones.

I finally found a good use for that rocket image from the other day- it is now being featured as the background and header of this website (which anyone reading this on the website will have doubtlessly noticed, but this is a heads up for those following via RSS).
If you don’t necessarily need the most cutting edge software, but you’d like to have some pro-level stuff, Adobe is giving away the CS2 Creative Suite. It’s a few years old, but still very useful! You just need to sign up for an Adobe.com account if you don’t have one already.
|Hello! The idea to do a sketchblog has been rattling around in my head for years now, but finally the stars have aligned and here we are. (It may also have something to do with the fact that I’ve finally upgraded my website from hand-coded html to WordPress– blogs are so much easier this way.) I hope you enjoy flipping through!Cheers,-Adam|
