Aubie Whiskavich

Wow! Busy week here at the Blog-O!

Here's some character sketches and designs for Aubie Whiskavich. He's actually a slight re-design of one of my oldest characters (from way back in the high school days), The Cat. (If you've followed the Blog-O! for very long, you've probably seen The Cat turn up here and there.)

I've been playing with some ideas for some comic shorts featuring Aubie Whiskavich and a mixture of other characters old and new. We'll see.

Beginning next week will be the first post of another project I've been working on, revisiting some of my oldest characters. Should be fun...for me at least! Enjoy Aubie for now!


More Gigglinoggin Sketches

For no reason: A few more silly sketches and designs of Princess Gigglinoggin, who made her debut in the previous post. Enjoy!

Princess Gigglinoggin and Misschiff

Princess Gigglinoggin was supposed to just be a quickly sketched throwaway character because I was amused by the name (originally it was going to be two words, "Giggly Noggin"). I was surprised to find out that I actually learned a lot about her as she really came to life when I began sketching her. While I imagine she's a teenager or a young adult, she's got the naive mentality of a young child. A very petulant, spoiled young child. She's painfully silly whenever things are going her way, and just a pain when things aren't. There's more to her, I feel, but who knows if I'll pursue her any further or not. I hope you enjoy her!


I actually went so far as to have a poll so people could pick what manifestation a "Giggly Noggin" would take. Obviously the "crazy princess" option won out (handily). But there was one write-in vote for "pixie", which I hadn't thought of. I liked the idea so much I ended up drawing pixies too. And came up with this character. She came to life more than I expected as well. I dunno about her name, it's just the best I could come up with for now.

New Photography Blog

So I started a blog for my "photography". I use the term loosely, because it's basically just me having fun with my fancy point-and-shoot camera. If you like purty pictures, mostly of nature, then why not have a look-see at my newest blog's humble beginnings? Enjoy!

Commission: Trouble on the Tracks!

This was a recent fan commission in which the client's original character, Lady Lawful (the "Golden Age" version) is seen on a cover of her fictional comic book. Looks like she's in a little peril on the railroad tracks there! Ah, you gotta love the classics.

The basic premise was the client's, the design and corny text on the cover are all vintage me.

(And do yourself a favor and don't fail to notice there is more than one new post today!)


TMNT Birthday Bash!

This was a quick piece I worked up for a TMNT-lovin' friend's recent birthday! Cowabunga!


Bueno 50K Views

From what I can tell, it's a tradition of sorts on deviantART for people to draw a little sketch or something commemorating milestones in their page view count. So when I reached 50K, I drew this super-quick sketch card of Bueno and gave it away to one super-oh-so-lucky watcher.


(For those astute enough to notice the scanned art looks a little different than usual...I found out too late that the card stock I used when reprinting the sketch to be inked tended to soak up the ink and created a thicker line than ideally wanted or normally have.)

You're Standing On My Neck

One of my favorite TV shows of the 90's, Daria, is finally being released on DVD next month! Here's hoping it still holds up a decade or so later. And here's a little fan art I recently whipped up in anticipation. Enjoy!

Commissions: Pirate Mermiad & Bleu/Deis

These are a couple of recent fan commissions from a single client. The first is a pirate mermaid (though I hope that's at least fairly obvious). The second is a character called Bleu/Deis from the "Breath of Fire" video game, which I'm entirely unfamiliar with. Enjoy!
