A Million (D)

The obsession continues.  I really need to get J in here to post hers too, they are amazing!
I enlisted Instagram to help make my work in progress version a little more dynamic and they were really helpful!  For comparison's sake here's the sketch:

Sunday Sketches (In Color!) -- Dumbo and TQM (D)

We properly introduced the kids to Dumbo this weekend.  So much appeal in this character design and animation, it's just amazing.

Barnum (D)

Ladies and gents, this is the moment you've waited for...

You Can't Stop It (D)

Last night I finished the last 20 minutes of Hairspray Live! on the old DVR. What, doesn't it take you over a year to watch a televised version of one of your favorite musicals?

Christmas 2017 Commissions (D)

Here are some of the results of my Christmas commissions sale:

For Taylor
For Maci
For Katie

For Nick

For Steve
Also for Steve!
For Lisa
Thanks, everyone!  I had a lot of work to do there at the end of the year but it was fun to do a variety of styles and subjects, and I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've ever drawn Amy Winehouse or the inside of a 747 cockpit.

Commission: Drew and Emily (D)

Today I just about finished my end-of-year commissions and it turns out there were quite a few of them this year!  I'm really grateful anytime anyone entrusts such a special gift (and certain amount of expenditure) to my hands, and I always love to hear back that the recipients are pleased.  Here's one I did for Drew and Emily to commemorate their engagement at Walt Disney World (something J and I can certainly relate to!).

I'll post more commission in 2018.  Happy New Year!

Disney Un-Disneyed In Color X (D)

Time to wrap up my year-long Disney Un-Disneyed In Color project.
All the creatures.  Can you name them all?

Are these six a little more recognizable in color? Maybe not.
 Original sketches for those two can be seen here.

And then as a seasonal P.S. I finally gave in to the hankering to do character redesigns from The Nutcracker and The Steadfast Tin Soldier, which I guess are related in a few ways (ballet, winter, military?).

This was a really satisfying project.
