Sketch Of The Week: Lummox

I guess this guy looks more like a brute than a lummox. Oh well he's already been branded with the lummox "L" so it's too late.

This is just a quick little sketch I did one day to test if I was learning anything. I've been trying real hard for the past couple of years to move my artwork away from the trendy flat cartoon drawing. I have more of an appreciation for really cartoony stuff that doesn't completely neglect practical 3d shapes. You can do so much more with a character that has a 3 dimensional form, like effortlessly drawing their head in any position.

In retrospect this sketch probably isn't the best example of what I've learned but it definitely shows improvement in my understanding of three dimensional forms. Just check out some of my old Disappointmentville comics and see for yourself.

Sketch Of The Week: Insomnia

I recently found this sketch just hangin' out on my hard drive. I drew it about two years ago with intentions to turn it into a full illustration but for whatever reason I moved on to other projects and forgot all about it.

T-shirt Gauntlet

Next to drawing comics, designing T-shirts is my favorite art related thing to do. So, recently in an attempt to make a little bit of passive income I created some original designs to sell on So far I haven't made any money. Maybe it will pick up after my inventory increases. Or maybe Zazzle is not all it's cracked up to be.

These are some of the latest designs I've created. You can Check out all of my designs by going to

You might remember seeing an LOL illustration similar to this on one of my Sketch of The Week posts. I decided that I wanted to use my OMG and LOL images for T-shirts but the LOL needed some improvement. So I redrew it and gave it a more limited color pallet. Get it here!

I did a few variations for this Fat Pride design. The king style for light and dark T-shirts and the chef version for an apron.

This design was inspired by a Sketch I did featuring a parody of the popular Hang In There motivational poster. Be the talk of the town and get your self a shirt or a mug!

Sketch Of The Week: Weird Doodles

I haven't been doing a whole lot of sketching recently since I've been a bit busy. I have, however, been doing some doodling.

I enjoy looking back at doodles like this more than any other sketch that I've done. I suppose it's because I don't really remember drawing a lot of it. Nor do I really remember what was going through my head at the time. They're stream of consciousness doodles that I do when I'm on the phone or have my focus occupied in some other way. My hand works almost independently from my higher level of thought. It's like a glimpse into my subconscious and boy, is it weird.

Sketch Of The Week: American Dream

Maybe you have 2.5 kids, own a house, are happily married, and even host barbecues on the weekends, but is it all worth it if the majority of your waking hours are spent feeling like this?

Sketch Of The Week: Charlie Sheen

I'm sure everyone's sick of all the Charlie Sheen business by now. Well too bad!

While looking through a recent sketchbook for this week's sketch I found this one that I had forgotten about. I think it would be great if they let Sheen back on Two and A Half Men and made his character go through a similar breakdown. It might actually make it a good show then. Zing!
