Sketchbook Filler

Still tinkering with the thumbnails for my webcomic. But in the meantime, here are some character sketches...

Since this is a sci-fi story of sorts, I figure it's high time I threw in some giant robots. There's an obvious beetle motif here, but in a sense these are actually very distant descendants of the Mars rover.

And meanwhile, on a completely different note: Monkeys.

Tooth Theory

Here's another birthday card, this one for my six-year-old niece. Since she's just started losing her baby teeth, this illustration reflects a couple of rival theories about the nature of the Tooth Fairy, including my wife Julie's hypothesis based on pack rats and their habit of trading random objects (i.e. teeth) for other random objects (i.e. coins).

Dino Rally!

Welcome back, and here's hoping your 2010 is off to a good start!

From the tail end of last year (no pun intended), here's a birthday card I did for my two-year-old nephew. Sounds like an occasion for dinosaurs, and soapbox derby racing...

The wily Deinonychus, of course, gets the win. But who's minding the eggs?
