I sat in on my sister’s sculpture class tonight and she made this awesome toy planet in about 20 minutes. Suffice it to say, my sister is the coolest. (You can see more of her work here: http://laprimerapayasa.tumblr.com/ )

This was for a story on the ways that the experience of air travel has been changing for the better and the worse.

More comics! After so much digital work it has been a lot of fun to get back to plain old paper and pencil for these. I am still working out the kinks to be sure, but definitely enjoying the process.

Half way through a new illustration. These guys will have to hold there places till I get back in the morning. Nice moment in the process where nothing is quite making sense yet. Looks like a little improv troop.
Drawing test for a mini comic.
Sketches for a story about unusual carry ons.
A progress shot of an illustration I’ve been working on. When I was little I logged many an hour collecting gems and power ups in these sorts of spaces. This definitely makes me want to collaborate on something in the game world, or at the very least take a couple of weeks off to dust off my old nintendo.
