An unusual anomaly for myself - two posts in a day.

Never the less, the "bug bit me," and I had to crank one more out before bed time. Incidentally, that brings me to this intuitive iota - Mite. He's Dust Bunny's nearly invisible sidekick.

It's always fun to play with scale and proportion on characters. For the most part, he's only a speck on the pages, spending most of his time perched on Bunny's shoulder. So the dynamic of the two characters is pretty fun.

If you Google dust mite, you get some pretty creepy looking images. So it was an interesting and fun journey to try and give this character a visual appeal, while still keeping a loose tether to his references. I almost colored this to clearly illustrate that he's wearing a puffy, orange vest (ala Marty pun intended...this time...), like an accessorized second banana should.

That's it for today. Off to bed, where I'm sure hundreds of these guys are anxiously awaiting me!

For the Love of Bunny...


After a solid year, looks like it's time to dust off the old blog. Not to say the same for my website, which has actually had a handful of additions over the past 9 months. But for the most part, freelancing for clients has kept me from embarking on any new adventures of my own. I'm hoping and praying that changes here, pretty soon...

So, I did this today. It's for a story I've been working on for about a month now, and though I've almost filled an entire sketch book with concepts and doodles surrounding this character's universe, I don't actually have any finalized art for him. So I dedicated myself to this today. I would love nothing more than for this idea to take off here in the next month or so, and really laser-focus my efforts into it. But in my experience, plans are made to be ruined. So we'll see.

As for now, this was a fun promo-type piece to put together. It was a much needed break from the undertakings that client-based work often brings.
