After seeing all the great Yuki 7 work that Kevin Dart and company did and are doing for the book release and upcoming art show at Gallery Nucleus, I got inspired to do a piece of my own. Being the Icon of the 60's that she was, I figured that Ms. Yuki 7 herself would be in many many adverts. Since I enjoy Japanese whiskys, I figured I would place her in an ad for one. So there it is. I think it needs more of a clever slogan or catch phrase, but it'll do for now. I'll go have me a drink to think up a better one.

Began playing Phantom Hourglass (again) last night so I got the inspiration to draw "Toon" Link this morning. Not sure why I went with the faux print look. Gave me a reason to use that stained paper scan though. I hope another Zelda game is made in this "toon" version. I think I like it better than the other ones. Wind Waker was so fun.

I don’t really ever draw myself. Or at least I haven’t in years. So I figured I’d have a go at it and do it the way I’ve been drawing lately. It was just going to be a sketch but it just kept going to the piece you see above. Then I figured it would be cool to see everyone that reads this blog to do the same. Self-Portrait Time everyone! I figure as artists Most of us evolve and change the way we do our art. Even slightly but there is some change. So I’d like to see everyone’s current way of doing a self-portrait. I’ll link to those that participate. Lets do it people!
Since he doesn't have a website or a blog, here is Bruce Richards' self portrait. AWESOME!

More packaging. Quick and basic piece here but still fun to do. A Japanese themed doll goes with this BG (obviously), but I don't know what she is wearing. I hope the colors work out alright.
On a side note I started a new blog. its called hungry hungry hugo. Since I spend so much time eating and cooking I figured I could blog about it. If you do either of those and enjoy to do so check it on out.

Obviously an ocean theme here. The doll that goes with this image has a bunch of blue and red anchors on her dress so this is her background. I finally have a Real reason to be doing some BG's in an Eyvind Earle style! Not that I need a reason of course. Heh.

I get to do the design and/or the product packaging for various toys from time to time. This is one backdrop I did for some dolls that are due to come out later this year. Not sure if it will get used or not so I figured I would post it here. Happy 2009!
