Some development work I did for a pitch, which alas, has not gone very far. It was fun to do though, and hopefully something will happen with it farther down the road. Characters are not my speciality, however I am pleased with how these ones turned out. They could do with a bit of refining though. I'll have to revisit them when I have more time.

First of all, let me say that this is NOT my artwork. No matter how brilliant or awful you think it is, I didn't do it...Having said that, it was done by one of my colleagues here at the studio. Apparently there is a Simpson website that allows you to create your own character, and this is one that they made...of me...They say the resemblance is uncanny.

In honor of Fathers Day I'm posting the cards I've done for my two fathers.
The top one is my father-in-law, Bert Voth. A man of adventure. At a time in life when most people are retired and fading away, he is working hard, traveling the globe and living on the edge. A true man of integrity, I am proud to be his son-in-law.
The bottom is my father, Barry Leboe. How can one person know so much?? It boggles the mind. The endless streams of knowledge and ability to survive whatever life throws his way has left me with a high standard to live up to. I wouldn't have it any other way.

This is a design which was sent for revision. The client felt that this was too large a dining room. They wanted a much smaller, more intimate version. That's fine but I still liked this one more, and since the TV will never see it I thought I'd post it here! Looking back at it now, I think there is still more room for extra detailing, though if it were ever colored it may begin to look a bit messy. We will probably never know.

My first ever Spiderman. Did this for the Drawingboard.org. Here Spidey shows us why we should all pay attention to the task at hand. A good lesson for all, including me. Which is why I will get back to work before I get into any more trouble...

Came across this design the other day. Unfortunately it never made into into a show. I've always liked it. It's the little detailing in the bottom left corner that makes this whole piece for me. The garbage bags, wagon etc, just seem to add a bit of life to it. Gives it that lived in feeling, like someone was just outside a moment ago.

The Edgar and Ellen Valentines episode has now aired on television and so now I feel free to post a couple of the designs I did for it. I had allot of fun with each of these. For some strange reason I was unable to find a finalized color version of the cafe, which is too bad. Come to think of it, I've never seen a final color of it. I know it's in the show though, so it must exist. The lower design, the car, never made it. Unfortunately the sequence was cut, or lost somehow. Disappointing. Oh well. I had lots of fun designing it, and had wanted to see it animate. I'm sure I can sneak it in a future episode.

A sketch I did for a friend a while ago. I'm admittedly not much of a character designer, however it was fun to do. I've always loved those Frank Frazetta paintings and old Pulp novel covers showing fantastic characters in life or death situations and this was an attempt to capture that feeling in my own style. Looking at it now I'd say she needs to either be more surprised at what is behind her, or angry at this guy for grabbing her thigh.
