Cersei Lannister

Had a great time at Dr. Sketchy Montreal's Game of Thrones themed drawing session.  Some of my favourite models did amazing work as Daenerys Targaryen and  Cersei Lannister! Here's a quick Alex Lindberg inspired Cersei Lannister character concept, that I sketched out between poses.

General Leia

Since I had done a Princess Leia character sketch for sketch dailies a while back, I thought I'd do one for Episode VII. I wanted to work with the concept of my previous Leia sketch, but also capture her as she is portrayed in the latest film. It was fun to take a little break from work and contribute to the overabundance of Star Wars fan art out there!

Vanessa Ives

I haven't had a chance to post in a while.  Been so busy organizing things with my book, Movement & Form. Here's a little colour sketch of Vanessa Ives from Penny Dreadful. I felt like doing a fun design of her character from Season 1.

Nintendo Sushi Podcast

Had the best time doing a podcast with Nintendo Sushi!  Ace and I talked about about my book, concepts of drawing, animation, Star Wars and how we define normal.  It was a very fun conversation!  Ace had some great things to say about my book, so thank you Ace for a wonderful podcast session!

Oberyn Martell

Here's a title credit for the character of Oberyn Martell (from the Game of Thrones series) inspired by the style of Alexander Lindberg.  It was so much fun to explore a simplified design but stay true to capturing the character.  I'm considering doing more of the cast!

Baobhan Sith

Too much work and chaos to get through these days, and I didn't get a chance to participate in Sketch Dailies this week.  I decided to take some time this morning to do a colour sketch for the Baobhan Sith theme from earlier this week, if I was to take time for one Sketch Daily this week, this was the theme that peaked my interest the most!  I love mythology, so I always enjoy those themes when they are posted! :)

Princess Leia

I just found out the Sketch Dailies' theme was Princess Leia and despite being swamped there was no way that I was going to pass up that theme! It was destiny; two things that I love, drawing and Star Wars, converging together.  So I had to do a quick colour sketch this evening to make it in time!

Retro Aviator

Trying out a 1950s rendering style for an art direction assignment.  Only Black and White and one colour allowed!  It's fun working with restrictions and in a simple style to try to find ways to communicate the design.  This is my design of Ace M.H.Hughes, Aviator Extraordinaire!

Tuesday, July 29, 2014


Didn't have a lot of time, but I had to do a quick sketch for Sketch Dailies on my coffee break.  I wish I could try to colour her but there just isn't time.  That being the case, I couldn't pass up Nike!

Pride & Prejudice

We had a Jane Austin themed costume model at life drawing.  Judith is a fantastic costume model as she is a character actress and really gets into her roles.  Always really fun to draw!

Wild West

Just some 2 to 3 minute sketches of a Wild West themed life drawing session.  The model was really great, and even held the facial expressions for the duration of the poses!

Sleeping Beauty

Just a quick colour sketch for Sketch Dailies. The original sketch was on a notepad with a Sharpy while I was on the phone, but I thought I'd colour it, I need to keep practicing with Photoshop until it gets comfortable!

Sunday, May 25, 2014


I felt guilty about not participating in Sketch Dailies in a while, so I scribbled a 2 minute Storm sketch for the daily theme between poses during my life drawing session.  It's a bit rough but at least I won't go too long without breaking the Sketch Dailies tradition!  Pencil on Newsprint.

Late night Pele colour sketch for Sketch Dailies. Just finished a move, so everything is a bit hectic, but I missed participating in Sketch Dailies!

Saturday, March 22, 2014


Sketch Dailies theme was Barbarella. I have never seen that film but it was fun to look it up and do a drawing :)

Just some more sketches from Life Drawing.  These range from 1 to 7 minutes.  Derwent Drawing Pencils (my favourites for life drawing!) on Newsprint Paper.

Evil Queen

I loved the life drawing theme this week, here's a photo of one of my sketches.  The character model was so fun to draw :)

Journey to the West

Todays' Sketch Dailies theme was Monkey King. Such a fun idea! I'm so swamped with work though, I just wish I had more time, but I wanted to do something for this theme today. Sketch dailies has been great for me to practice colour sketches. So here's a fast Sun Wukong sketch, just wish I could squeeze in more time!

Three Blind Mice - String Trio

Really fast colour sketch for sketch dailies.  I wasn't initially inspired by the theme but then I started thinking about how developed your other senses are if sight is removed, and I thought about how they would feel and enjoy music... So this was my fast last minute sketch once I finally came up with an idea.  I wanted to try keeping it really graphic, so it had more of an old school jazz feel to it.
