Some quick doodles

This guy just popped up. Not too happy with him, but i do love his attitude.

These are quickie exploratory studies for a personal project. Just exploring shapes, negative space, direction.



As you can tell, I haven't posted anything for some time. Work has really been hectic, but I hope to post new stuff soon. I'm currently working on some notes regarding my work process as well as trying to get some new work for my next sketchbook. The deadline is on. I figure I have about a month, maybe two tops in order to get it to the publisher in time for ComicCon'06. We'll see how it goes. Until then, get the coffee started and the pencils sharpened....

Nunca me cansaré de ver tus composiciones, John. Además de encantarme tu estilo, tienes una gran visión cinematográfica.
