Mind controlling squids

Ok, my new painting is a lot more work than I thought. So, in the meantime, I thought I'd draw something else.
What would happen if giant mind controlling squids took over the world ? what if they'd control our monsters to achieve their ultimate objective ?  I know this sounds crazy, but it would be so cool ! And again, unlike mind controlling squids, I don't control what comes out of my head...

Sushi - some ideas just don't gel well

I haven't done much sketches lately because I'm intensively working on my next painting. So, I thought, well, why not share something here that I've learned while painting Sushi. You see, originally, I had in mind to create a flat/cartoony design that looked awesome on paper, but just didn't end up working as well as I thought it would. Thanks for all the folks and friends who pointed out (the obvious) to me - the final image looks miles better :)

Here is Sushi's original design - well, sometimes, some "big" ideas just don't cut it...

Here is a caricature of my goldfish - his name is 'sushi' and this portrays him in a good day. He always looks grumpy but I don't think he is. He's just a nice fellow who does a good job at whatever he's doing.

More critters

Here're two more lovely fellas - not as fun as the other three, I must say though, I don't have much control on what comes out of my head. I'll just keep fishing in there, never know what kind of other critters might bite !

Critters !

Halloween is around the corner so it's a perfect time to get into spooky (and silly) mode. I've decided to draw all sort of weird creatures this week. Don't let the critters bite !

APE was a blast !

Thanks to everyone who took the time to visit me (and others) at the APE this week end. This was my first exhibit and I was amazed by all the positive feedback I received ! I would like to also thank Jackson and Karen for getting me into this awesome adventure. And again, thank you all for your incredible support, I really appreciate it !!!

APE ! October 16th & 17th !

The Alternative Press Expo (aka APE) is getting really close now -  if you find yourself in San Francisco this week end, drop by the Concourse to check out incredible artists and their great work. Be sure to come by my table (455), even if just to say hi. Hope to see you there !

Even more practice...

Ok, I got a bit carried away with this one. I started with the elf girl then I felt I needed something in the background... and as such I ended up with this big dude. My brain is overly screwed sometimes...

More practice, more practice...

Here're two new sketches. I couldn't get the space-girl proportions quite right - damn! - so I gave her a giant spider-robot to cheer her up.

Practice, practice, practice...

Ask me to draw a bloodthirsty shrimp and I'll feel right at home. But ask me to draw a person and I'll struggle and sweat. I mean, I can do something quick but getting it "right" can sometimes take hours. So let's practice a little. I especially like the one of the far left, I may do a painting of her later :)

Getting ready for the expo...

Sorry if I haven't been drawing much lately, but I have been working on some of my "obligatory" tasks before the expo - such as business cards, banner and so forth. I've never looked so professional. But hey ! once I get that out of the way (probably tomorrow), I'll get back in my drawing groove ! Here're a couple of my hatchlings - they are now ready for the printing press !

Alternative Press Expo 2010 !

I'm delighted to announce that I'll be exhibiting at the Alternative Press Expo in San Francisco on October 16th & 17th. I'm really excited about this upcoming opportunity and looking forward to the experience - please come by and visit me (and the expo) if you are in the area :)
Here's the Alternative Press Expo official site.

I can't believe it !

Yeah, I can't believe I have a blog. If I could travel back in time and tell my younger self that he'll someday have a blog, then he wouldn't have believed me. But this blog is not any kind of blog - it is my 'art blog'. So anyone looking for posts about what I had for breakfast or why my goldfish swims upside-down, then this place isn't the place. So no OMGs, WTFs nor WYDFs (I made that last one up). But if you're looking for a place to see my latest monsters, space-aliens and brain farts, then this place certainly IS the place. Thanks for visiting !
