The Monster Maintenance Manual

Holy Macaroni! Look what I just found, promotional release details for the book I illustrated for Murdoch Books, written by Peter Macinnis. All you peeps with kids or without, buy the Monster Maintenance Manual in November, its only $30, huge & one of those books that you keep discovering things as you age & re-read...& most importantly you can support my art career. Apparently its an Australia & UK release and more countries to follow...I'm so excited, I'm just so excited! A copy is coming my way next week. This is a Long Legged Underbed Pig, it was one of the monsters you had to do for the initial brief...I had to clean him up a bit more for the final book, but Im glad to see he made it in.

Update: Got the book...its freakin' sweet! When it is released ill be posting more images up here and maybe some of the rejected concepts.

Maik's Dorito's ad in top 3, please vote for him!...and pray my PC recovers.

Please vote for Maik's Dorito's Ad entry & help a artist get some money to work on their own projects! it's the only animated entry and called Fantasy Corn Chip Island.

In other news, I had to take today off work because I have caught a yucky cough, & to add to my dismay, I turned my computer on to do some work & it decided to also become sick & go into a coma. Thankfully I have all my files backed up, unfortunately I hadn't backed up previous personal sketch working files from the last month, including flash files for a new website I was working on for a side project. Im due to finish my contract in less than 2 months & really didnt need to loose PC power when I need it for upcoming freelancing & website updating...shithouse as Maik would say. Thankfully I have a netbook which runs sketchbook pro & my cintiq.

Heroine Chit Chat

Update: Here is the coloured version...I forgot, its suppose to be brother, not cousin.

Here is a quick scribble of Wonder Woman and She-ra I did just to get rid of some creativity as I didnt get to do much sketching this week. Id like to colour it but Id have to fix a few things up in the sketch first, like straightening out She-ra's sword arm, its too awkward...as well as her legs, thigh and hand...but I did this at 11pm, so thats my excuse for dodgy dynamics.
