More Kip and Zara Sneak Peaks

Hey! Here's a few more drawings from the recent book I illustrated, Kip and Zara's Money Adventure. It introduces money management to kids 4 to 8 years old and was written by Bill Roche, president of PowerPlay Strategies. It's not available in stores yet but if you'd like a copy for $11.95 plus tax, send me an email and I'll get one to you. Thanks for your support!

The illustrations were drawn on paper, then scanned in photoshop and colored digitally.

George of the Jungle Thumbnails

People always ask how they should start to design a character. Everyone is different and has their own method. I like to work small and do really rough, sketchy thumbnails. These doodles are only about 3" high. When I come up with something I like, I blow it up and refine it further.

Sometimes it takes a bit of work but once in awhile, I come up with something pretty quick that's very close to my finished submitted design. Take a look at the GTJ designs below and see what I mean.

Class of the Titans Sketches

These are a couple of my rough sketches for a storyboard in CTT season two's episode 39, Dreamweaver. It turned out as a horizontal pan across a battle scene of dead titans. Cool, huh? Who could do such a dastardly deed? Stay tuned and find out!

Pucca Storyboard - Kung Fu Review

Here's another Pucca board from the first season. Gotta love scenes where every character in the show is standing around and talking to each other while surrounded by a crowd. C'mon, writers...give us a break!

Kip & Zara

Here's the front cover and a few drawings from Kip and Zara's Money Adventure, a book I recently illustrated and designed. It introduces money management concepts to children ages 4 to 8. Author Bill Roche published it last year but it's not available in bookstores as yet. We've been relying on corporate sponsorship from companies like TD Bank and New Westminster Savings. It's also a major component of Bill's educational workshops that his company, PowerPlay Strategies, puts on for parents and kids through their schools.

Email me if you'd like to purchase a copy for $11.95, plus taxes, and I'll send you one!

Check out the Manitoba Library Association's review of the book here.

Here are some early concept designs for the new George of the Jungle show produced by Studio B and Classic Media. GTJ will air on Cartoon Network soon!

Following are a few designs for previous shows and freelance projects that I've had the pleasure of working on.

Drawings and Stuff

I wanna a new bike so bad!

Many people in the industry will tell you how difficult it is to keep up with the life drawing once you get busy working, yet it's the key to staying loose and improving your drawing skills!
