When you gotta shoot

...shoot, don't talk.

Ah, my terribly neglected blog. How have you been?


Here's my friend Sasha from work. Our jobs are about the worst ever.


I drew this while making phone calls. Look, if you don't have time to talk, just say so, okay?

Jeez, Gawd...

Sidenote: Common ballpoint pens are actually kind of interesting to draw with... it's ink, but you can get this sketchy cross-hatching effect that you can't get with most ink. My friend Lance was always pretty good at it, as I recall.



Know what's hard? Bitmap artwork. Pixel pushing takes a lot of time and patience. Here's some 2-D pilot girls I made up for fun. Because 2-D is ALWAYS better.


See you next time!

I like the pixel art of Pilot Girl. Reminds me of video games.

Nice! The pixel art is extremely cool, and very video-game-y. Excellent caricature too, junior!

Thanks team!

I totally agree with what you said about ball point pens, in high school I would draw with them all the time. I'd angle the tip quite heavily so the ball wouldn't even roll and I swear you can get near pencil like hatching.
