After more than 10 years of page design and working with Quark and Indesign and Photoshop and Illustrator, I won't be doing much of that anymore.
It kind of makes me sad, because design has been such a strong influence in my life and it's a majority of what I know. Still we all have to transition sometime in life and if I want to find a career outside of second-shift copy desking, there is no time like the present.
I plan on keeping my sketchbooks around. You can see some of my early work by clicking on the Sketch tab. But I'll post some work here, too.
I fell in love with the "Bad Moon," an icon for a clan of orcs in Warhammer, and the image has stuck with me quite some time. You can see the evolution of that image in the second pick. A little more 3-D and better detail. I can't remember from where the tentacles came, but I'm guessing there's a strong influence from Tim Burton's "Beetlejuice" and the cartoon spinoff series.
You can even see two characters I have been working on developing for sometime, "Smiley" and Lilith, the crab-handed bald girl spewing tentacles in the third picture.
If I get the time I'd like to work up a painting of the middle picture, but I need to get back into drawing again. Without having a visual element to my work life, maybe I'll get some time to focus on the sketchbook again.
