So I’ve been doing a bit of sketchwork lately. Evenings in the hotels and at coffee shops and the like. A large part of the focus has been work for the card game I mentioned recently (see the two images below).
I’ve also beenthinking about offering art for promotion. The idea would be that I will do a sketch of something for you for free. Your side of the deal? You just send me a screen shot of the social media spot where you link back to the post where I explain the offer. I suppose I should point out that I would advertise my for pay services in that same post.
What do you think? Does that sound spammy/tacky? Seem like a great idea? Let me know in the comments below. Would love to get some folks’ feedback!
I’m working on a new logo for posts I make that are about my life on the road.
I’ve created a small collection of thumbnails, and I would love to get some feedback on them. Like one of these designs? Let me kniw which one, and (this is important) why. Also, I’m happy to mix and match, so if you think one component from one thumbnail would look great with one of the other thumbnails, say so!
I love games – always have. I think it’s about time I created my own. I have a day job, so I don’t need to make money on this, and (let’s face it) at least the first round isn’t likely to be amazing, so why not make it free?
It will start out as a fantasy based game, but future incarnations/expansion packs will likely be from other genres. Horror? Sci-Fi? Western? Sure – why not!?

So for the longest time now, I’ve been using Sketchbook Mobile as one of my sketching and doodling tools on my Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. I thought that was the pro version of the software. I was mistaken.
I just picked up SketchBook Pro and have been using that this evening. What a difference! The tools are so much more agile, and far more functional. If you’re using Sketchbook Mobile or Sketchbook Express as your drawing application on an Android device, I highly recommend making the switch!
Better tools, better layout, and more functionality (hello layer blend modes!) make Sketchbook Pro well worth the expenditure. Check it out in the Play storefront.
What can I say? I’m a nerd.
In high school chemistry I started doodling this cross between Arnold Schwarzenegger and Beaker from the Muppets. A hit with my classmates, the concept stuck in my head and he makes an appearance every now and then.
This incarnation was done with Sketchbook Pro on my Note 10.1.
