Hotel Transylvania: Mavis Studies


These are some drawings I did while animating on the film Hotel Transylvania.

Near the start of production, I was given a scene where Mavis (Dracula's daughter) is sitting on her bed and she's feeling a bit troubled with the world. I was trying to figure out her character at this point, so I did these drawings as an attempt to get inside her head as well as try to come up with some sitting poses that would be unique to a teen aged girl.

Escaping the Heat at the Zoo


I went drawing at the L.A. Zoo today. It was really hot there, but I lucked out and found this sweet shady table on a patio that overlooks the Giraffes' enclosure. The perfect spot to do some marker drawings.

Theme Drawing: 'Pro Wrestler'


A little while back, I was doing a bunch of 'Theme Drawings' with some of the guys I was working with. We all wrote down random themes, put them into a hat, and each day we'd pick one to draw.

I've been going over some of my scribbles that I thought were fun, and doing another pass at them to try to make them a bit nicer looking.


This is what I came up with for 'Pro Wrestler'.

Weekly Sketchclub


Once a week, I get together with a bunch of good folks at lunchtime for Sketchclub. We hang out in a restaurant or patio in Culver City and draw anything and anyone around us. Recently, I caught fellow sketchclubber, Shane Cauchi, working away on some cool drawings.

From My Sketchbook 4



Some recent cafe sketches...


I sketched this guy at the Le Brea Tar Pit Museum. I loved how his digital camera was forcing him into this posture.

More Playing in Painter

I've been playing in Corel Painter a lot lately. These are a couple of examples of exercises I do in my spare time. Quick landscape value studies and playing with colour in portraits are things I've been focusing on the most.

Warty Pigs

I'm a big fan of the 'Warty Pigs' at the L.A. Zoo, each one has their own unique hairstyle, giving them tons of personality.
