1. Side track painting

I was in the middle of a 25 painting deadline that was due the next morning so naturally I painted this instead.

My dern cat knocked my automaton off the counter and this is how I found it this morning. I like building these things not rebuilding them. Sheesh.

7. Cintiq Sketching

A friend of mine is letting me try out his Cintiq tablet. I gotta say, it's pretty fun to sketch on. Here are a few doodles. I need to figure out how to do more with it I guess.

I found this pig in a pile of sketches. I don't think I ever posted it so, here it goes. Captain Banjo, defending porcine pickers everywhere.

19. First post of 2012

Okay, I've been slacken' big time. I've made a goal to sketch more so hopefully that means you'll see a lot more stuff on the ole blog. If I'm not doing enough just let me know and I'll try harder. Here is today's doodle.

This was a demo for Will Terry's illustration class. All of his students are doing a Banjo Pig for an assignment. Awesome. Can't wait to see them all. They will be posted on the Banjo Pig Blog. Enjoy.

21. Batty Automaton

Here is my latest little project. I really needed to make a Halloween automaton and this is what I came up with. It's a very simple movement but because it is on such a long flimsy pole it is a heck of a lotta fun to watch. Even more fun in person. Enjoy.Sorry for the crappyness of the video.

22. Soggy Bottom Pig

I did this little banjo pig for illustrator David Weisner when he was in town doing a presentation. I drew it on one of those watercolor postcard pads of paper, then when it was all done I sent it to him as a thank you. I was his host for the few days that he was here, driving him around, showing him the sights...whatever. He is a really great guy and a fantastic artist. It was nice to get to know him. Anyway, enjoy the pig. I know it's been awhile since I've posted anything. I'm bad.
