  Here is a step by step breakdown of my vehicle rendering process for a Mustang.  The goal was to make an aggressive looking lowered body kit that followed the lines of the new body style but added about 10-12″ in width overall.  The design called for a total package track car, plexi windows, roll cage, fire suppression system, adjustable …

I was working from a low resolution camera phone photo taken in …

Racing Portrait

Corso Hero

This was painted in photoshop using a photo reference of a friend of mine on the track. The goal was to try and convey the vivid colors, the action and the speed of this moment. I didn’t bother putting the background in, i felt like it detracted from the subject.

Subwoofer Box Plans

Subbox Hero11

This is a set of plans that I drew up for a sub woofer box that I built for the trunk of my Altima in 1998-ish.  Now that I do all my drawings on a Cintiq, I look back on these plans and realize that even though the medium I work in is different, the process is still the same …

Statue Drawing Step by Step

Statue Hero11

I drew this from a statue ‘The Greek Slave’ by Hiram Powers. This is an exercise that I did in a series to practice light and shadows. This one is the first in a series of two drawings of this statue. There is something liberating about drawing from sculpture. The sculptor has already thought through the process of how to simplify complex …

The Girls in Disney

Thegirls Hero1

This is a sketch that I did of my three daughters that I did while sitting on the couch with them and watching Disneys new movie Frozen.  The inspiration for the sketches was taken from the general look and feel of Elsa and Anna when they were children in the first part of the movie.  I thought it would be …

Anatomy Practice

Skull Hero1

After all the years that I’ve been drawing, anatomy and bone structure still remain at the top of my list of things that I would draw if I didn’t need to worry about making a living. Working the human skeleton into more basic geometric shapes and stylizing features of bones still brings me a large amount of satisfaction.  Whenever I …

Mother and Child

Giraffe Hero1

This is the first in a series of nature drawings that I want to do that feature mother and child.  This series was inspired by watching my wife playing with our daughters the other day, since then I’ve been hyper aware of the mother/daughter relationship in humans and in the natural world.  There are very few things in nature that …

Spot illustration for client

Tozun Hero1

This is a little spot illustration that I did for a client for use in their math jingle videos on youtube.  They wanted it to be a graphic that could serve as a logo/watermark and show a little bit about their personalities while being fun.  The original drawing didn’t have them singing, but just smiling.  They asked that I make …

Drawing of my daughter…. drawing…

Lucydrawing Hero1

  Our twins love to draw, just like their dad.  This was a drawing I did of Lucy while she was sitting at her arts and crafts table scribbling on a piece of paper intently.  I love the idea of toying around with what their though processes are at any given moment, and what she sees when she puts the …
