This week’s sketch of the week is a concept for a personal project in the works.
Inspired by actual events, today’s Sketch of the Week is a signal that the era of post-baby excuses has drawn to a close (as has the era of post-baby smorgasbords). It’s time to get cracking (and also stop snacking.)
And hey, if you completely disregard the fact that I missed six weeks of posts, this sketch is on time! We’re off to a great start! (Suggestions to the contrary will be promptly ignored.)
Well, the summer is finally over. The end of this season marks the arrival of two big projects I’ve had in the works since late last year.
First up, and more exciting for me, was the birth of my daughter in early August. Grace stole my heart and killed my sleep schedule in one fell swoop. She also struck a dire blow against my sketch of the week initiative, but not a fatal one! The SOTW will return!
Also on the docket, and more exciting for people who don’t realize how cute my daughter is, was the recent launch of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey presents Treasures of Middle-earth Design Contest. Designing a site for one of my favorite stories of all time just about took me to Nerdvana. I created a promotional video for Warner Bros. as well:
Check out the contest site and the sample artwork I drew for it at www.theHobbitDesignContest.com.
Not as much time this week. Next week I hope to draw either a Shadowrun Dwarf or a Gila Mobster. We’ll find out.
Still, that’s not to say I didn’t do any art this week. This style test was done Wednesday and rejected by a client Thursday. Hopefully, the Internets like him better.
This week was moving week, and switching houses when your wife is expecting is pretty hectic, so I only allowed myself 15 minutes for this sketch. And it took 30.
