I know it’s been 12 days after Halloween, but I figured I should go right ahead and put up these images and show that I can do more than just drawing and graphic art. Give me the big orange fruit and I’ll go to town!
Last year, I uploaded a page of Tipper Tawp taking the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, since the challenge became quite popular that same year. When you look at it, you’ll notice Tipper nominates three Work’n’Play Pals. For quite some time, I wondered how they would do their part. Now I’ve got my answer right here!
Unlike Tipper’s IBC page, these three are colored in. And to be honest, that really makes the illustrations stand out well. The trick is to make sure you’re using the right colored pencils.
Last year, I got this book for Christmas called ‘Doodling with Jim Henson,’ which consists of many exercises that allow my creativity to flow. And in case you haven’t guessed, Jim Henson remains one of my greatest idols. He created characters, voices, and ideas worth sharing with people of all ages, which is one of the reasons I respect him.
Anyway, here’s a file I’ve put together of 14 ‘inner beings’ created in the pages.
Some of the other exercises are pretty interesting, and they have some of the most interesting doodles I’ve ever made. Perhaps I can figure out how to include pages of my doodles without showing too much of whatever was already in the book before I received it.
It’s been quite a while since I drew Arby (derived from the abbreviation for Recreational Bus: RB), so I seized the chance and went for it. I even created a logo for Yonda Globe, who loves Earth Day and, according to the artwork, has been “bringing the world together since 1995.” 1995 of course can refer to just about anything, like my celebrating Earth Day in 1st grade. And I believe children attending elementary school would be thrilled to see my holiday/event-based work. They deserve to experience the pleasures of education the same way I did.
