If you are like I am, you never look at your own work with too kind of an eye. i used to kind of like the original piece (on the bottom), but now every time I see it , I realize just how bad of a drawing it is. I was just learning Photoshop, but that's no excuse for the bad drawing. I decided to revisit it recently after 10 odd years to see what I could learn from it. It's by no means a big success, but I like it better. The chunky chick is a bit more dimensional and her skull doesn't look so wacky.

...did I think I'd ever "blog". First of all, I never thought I'd have enough semi interesting things to say on a regular basis. I still don't which is why I'm basically going to be using this as an online sketchbook. My first official post is to plug a book that I've been putting together for a couple of months now. It's called ironically enough, "Tiki, T-Dog & Whatnot", the same name as my brand new blog! It will be published by the super talented Alberto Ruiz through his Brand Studio company. Hopefully the artwork will hold up to the presentation as it will be a nice hardback with over 40 pages of full color. Over 200 drawings, sketchs, concepts and a few pieces that may qualify as actual illustrations, but the focus is on the rough stuff. This is the "almost" final cover. Let me know what you think. BTW, please use your real name when posting comments and promise I will do the same in return.
