Alien Flipper Creature

Spent one afternoon doodling and sketching while on vacation by a pond in Cape Cod. Imagined this guy coming up out of the plake (it's called a pond but it's like a lake -- a word coined by the daughter).

Coffee Stain Alien Flipper Boy

When I was growing up, there was a boy who showed up one day for football tryouts. He had big hollowed-out eyes the color of coffee stains and flippers for hands. He didn't make the team and neither did I.

We commiserated but didn't become friends. I could never get over his coffee hollow stare and the slimy fishy smell of his flipper hands.

Tasty Hot Chili

The Mrs asked me before Christmas to come up with some drawings depicting 'enjoyment of food'. This was a quick marker sketch that I vectored in Illustrator then brought back int Photoshop tonight to color it in for the blog. I was playing with a shading technique using 'dissolve' mode paintbrush in Photoshop that Bob Staake, an out-of-this-world illustrator, describes on his site.

For pure amazement check out his video on boingboing that brought him to my attention yesterday.

Cross My Path

Driving home through the woods recently in the dark, this mangled product of alien in-breeding stumbled across the road in front of me. I can't stand when creatures stumble out of the woods at the periphery of my headlight wash -- it scares the hell out of me. For weeks, you'll always think something is there, in the woods, watching, stumbling.

One more day on the sick bed.
