What do you think robots say to each other when people aren't around. Binary of course. Here's an image I drew last year but thought it would be great for this week's "communication". It's an illo that makes me smile everytime I look at it.

Well, folks, here you go. I had some extra time so I drew a second submission for this weeks word Gravity. The letters coming out of the magician's eyes were sort of an afterthought. When I completed the painting, it just looked like it still needed something. My computer malfunctioned while printing another document, so I saved the gobledy- goop and I thought it looked cool so I added it here. It kinda gives it that techno-edgy look. What do you think?
Have a good week everyone.

Here's something I drew for a corporate motivational program last year. Not bad for this week's word Gravity. I drew a pen and ink drawing in my sketchbook, scanned it, then colored it in Photoshop. Looking back and as you can see, my style was very tight back then. Today, with my constant drawing and submitting to IF, I believe my new style has come a long way as my new drawings exhibit more confidence and energy. Thanks Illustration Friday!

I had some extra time so here's another sketch I drew for this week's IF Crash. I feel kind of sorry for the guy because he's getting ready to fly off his bike, but he'll be okay because as you can see, he's wearing a helmet. Happier drawing next time, I promise. Have a good week everyone.

Here's one of my submissions for the 2005 KALX t-shirt competition. It's a student run radio station out of Berkeley that plays all kinds of music. The only requirement was to have the radio station's call letters and name in the design. It's a really cool station and cutting edge stuff on it. Groovy stuff. Anyways, I submitted this image for "home grown radio". It didn't win, :(, but I still had fun drawing it, :). It started out from a teeny weeny sketch in my sketchbook, blown up, and traced to what you see here. When I heard IF current word: Sprout, it reminded me of this drawing so here it is. Although . . . (please scroll down for more) . . .
This design did win! They didn't make t-shirts out of this one but they did put this design onto thousands of "adhesive stickers". It was sort of a honorable mention but that's cool. It was stickers for books, cars, furniture, what-ever the owner's heart desired. I guess they thought it was a simple enough design that could be easily recognizable from a distance. I was inspired by a "Radio Junkie" and just drew what came to mind. Yippeee. Notice that at that time time, MP3's weren't invented yet, so the maniac listens to his Walkman. Of course with FM radio so he can listen to KALX. If you've got sime time, check it this real hip station: here's the link. Peace Out!
