McNulty as played by Dominic West. I finally got around to watching The Wire - only about a decade late.

More "M" characters to come.

M is for Star Wars (Maz Kanata)

Lately all I feel like drawing is Star Wars stuff, but there are so many characters in the universe now, so I am trying to limit myself to characters whose name start with specific letters. Otherwise I get too overwhelmed by the choices. Last week I sketched a few M aliens. More to come!

I am currently without Photoshop, so this was done in Macromedia Flash (2002) with some texture overlay in GIMP. It makes for some fun problem solving.

I had "Happy Together" by The Turtles stuck in my head the whole time I was working on this drawing.

Another Stingy Jack

Messing around a bit with a different drawing style.

Another illustration of Stingy Jack, or Jack of the Shadows, or Jack of Lanterns.

White pencil on black paper, and then colored digitally.

Going back to my roots, and doing some vector illustrating.

Banjo Pluckin' Swamp Thing

I just finished the Alan Moore series of the Swamp Thing, and was inspired to do some fantarting.

Ten points if you can name the woodpecker species.

Burrowing Owls

Burrowing owls in watercolor and colored pencils. My part in an art trade with some of my wife's coworkers. The idea was to do a drawing in an hour or less. I took more time than that, but we'll keep that on the D.L.

A circa-80s Storm cut-out for a friend. I made a few of my own tweaks to the design though.

Han and Chewie

A gift for a friend of mine who collects images of people looking over the front seat of a vehicle while holding a weapon. It's a very specific and limited collection.

I tried a new style with this. The lines are originally vector, and the coloring/shading is done in Photoshop

A predator.

I am really looking forward to Shane Black's return to the franchise.

Queen Mary's Bath House

Queen Mary's Bath House at Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh, Scotland. Inspired by my recent visit to the amazing city!

I am crap at drawing buildings, so this is my attempt at practice. This was made from watercolors, colored pencils, and cut paper.

Future Ambassador

Following his announcement about the Paris Climate Agreement yesterday, Drumpf is visited by an ambassador from the future.

Will this nitwit just resign already!?

Mount Rainier

A first attempt at doing a minimal landscape with watercolors and colored pencils. Very "Meh". 

This is from Paradise on Mount Rainier.

Green-winged Teal

As a good friend of mine would say, "A duck". Anas carolinensis to be precise.

Still doing the watercolor and colored pencil illustrations.

Ree Yees

From Jabba the Hutt's palace.

Little known false fact: Ree Yees isn't even his name. His real name is Reed Yeates, but he's always too drunk to pronounce it correctly.

Squig Hopper

Once upon a time, back in the 90s, I used to play Warhammer with my friends. Every once in a while I still get moments of nostalgia.

Tawny Frogmouth

Another watercolor and colored pencil bird. The tawny frogmouth is native to Australia. I would like to see one in the wild some day... and laugh at it.

Health Care

Some helpful advice about health care reform.

This is my sketchbook equivalent of screaming at the news.
