Poor C3PO...

Most likely he's caused some horrible disaster and the Star Wars folks want to take it out on his tin hide! Check out more Star Wars art and other scribblings at my little blog [ if you care to... ]

This was done in Illustrator. I am trying to work on the pressure of the wacom tablet with vector and it is slowly coming along. Trying simple things first untill I can build up the confidence to try more detailed images.

And why not start with something I love? Copyright and all that crap Lucas Film.. blah blah blah.

Go the Blues

Freddie suddenly realised that his T-shirt looked very similar to the Auckland rugby team’s jersey. Go the Blues! Freddie is a character from our web comic the Chocolate Log Story.

This should give you a little taste of what it is like to shoot with David Lachapelle. Picture "the factory," Andy Warhol's old place. This is the modern version of that. There are freaks everywhere. People constantly coming and going. The show never stops. People are always dropping by from previous shoots. Music is blasting at full volume. There is a DJ there at all times. You can see the wild sets we built. For me it was as stressful as it was fun. He is a legend. David shot a commercial with Fergie days before our shoot. Before that he shot a music video for Jennifer Lopez. After we left he was on to a music video for Elton John.

SFG: rock legends

Two of the greatest and most prolific drummers in the history of rock and roll are also two of the biggest unsung heroes.
you play glockenspiel...
Hal Blaine and Jim Gordon played with some of the most famous performers in popular music and played on some of the most significant recordings in modern music history. Hal Blaine, a member of the famed LA session group The Wrecking Crew, holds a current Grammy record. He played on six consecutive Records of the Year: Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass in 1966, for A Taste of Honey, Frank Sinatra in 1967, for Strangers in the Night, 5th Dimension in 1968, for Up, Up and Away, Simon & Garfunkel in 1969, for Mrs. Robinson, 5th Dimension in 1970, for Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In and Simon & Garfunkel in 1971 for Bridge Over Troubled Water. In addition, he played on recordings by everyone from The Partridge Family, Elvis Presley, The Carpenters, The Mamas and Papas, Neil Diamond, Barbra Streisand, The Byrds and Paul Revere & The Raiders. He was heard on the majority of The Beach Boys recordings (except for Pet Sounds, which was Jim Gordon. Dennis Wilson, the Beach Boys drummer, only drummed in concert). When Dennis Wilson recorded his only solo album, he hired Blaine to play drums. Blaine was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000. He estimates that, in his career, he played on over 35,000 recordings.

Jim Gordon was one of the most sought-after session drummers throughout the 60s and 70s. He played alongside such artists as Donovan, Jackson Browne, Glen Campbell, Alice Cooper, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, George Harrison, The Monkees, Carly Simon, Steely Dan and Traffic. He played the famous drum break in the Incredible Bongo Band's "Apache", later sampled by The Sugarhill Gang in their hip-hop version of the song. Gordon was a member of Frank Zappa's Grand Wazoo band and he was the drummer for Eric Clapton's Derek and The Dominos. Gordon wrote and played the renowned piano outro on "Layla".
In 1983, after years of complaining of voices in his head, Gordon beat his mother with a hammer and stabbed her to death with a butcher knife. Gordon currently resides in a state medical corrections facility in Vacaville, CA

hungry giraffe

Here's an illustration I whipped up for my 22 month old daughter. She's really into giraffes and requested I draw a "giraffe eating". Here's the result.

Seamour Sheep Illuminative Edition

A prototype of the Seamour Sheep Illuminative Edition on the hand of his proud creator.

The Seamour Sheep Illuminative Edition is a soon to be released USB-powered lamp edition of the Seamour Sheep comic character.


saxtonmoore I wanted to really clean this one up and go all out on the colors, but time did not permit. I used to enjoy watching the gummie bears get loaded up on Juice and bounce all over the place to save the day. I feel the same way when I drink Patron. I couldn't squease 2 of the bears into the composition (Grammi Gummi and Gruffi Gummi) The show had a pretty decent run of 95 episodes.

Probably the biggest legend

Well At least I think so. I painted this a while back ( some time last year) for a solo exhibition. Acrylic on illustration board.

I have to spend my days lately without a computer to draw with, so I started some scribbling with the ballpoint pen. All the best.

SFG: Rock Legends

This week's theme: SFG: Rock Legends

Kiss, Meatloaf, Ozzy and so on....this week's theme was enthusiastically suggested by Darren Di Lieto, the mastermind behind The Little Chimp Society,,, and probably more that I'm not even aware of.

The SFG Challenge runs Thursday to Thursday, and was created to offer every member an opportunity to stretch their creative muscles and post their interpretations on a specific theme.

Be sure to label your illustrations with the appropriate labels as well. Label your entries with your name and the challenge label, in this case SFG: Rock Legends

Remember, this is a completely voluntary challenge designed solely to stimulate creativity and promote participation. Please don't hesitate to post your other work as normal.

There are some updates on the SFG Blank Book site if you haven't checked that out recently. Everyone involved so far looks like they're having a blast with it. The book has just left Vincent Altamore (and Jake) and is finding it's way to Gary Fields. Check out the great photos and teaser images at!

The next challenge begins Thursday, October 4th, 2007.

Have a great week SFG'ers!


Blank Book Project

Just completed my contribution to BBP and have to admit it was a lot of only regret was that I was among the first participants and it will be awhile before I get to see the work of everyone who's involved !!!

All the best

PYBOT: Mothman

Here's my last minute contribution to PYBOT...

I've been reading The Mothman Prophecies this last week and I figured it would be fun to do my own take on this particular boogeyman.

Rainy Day With Butch

Butch and I went out to draw. It was an extremely rainy Sunday. We parked near an awning. People were stuck under it to avoid the downpour. Butch and I sat in the car and drew. I did a mishmosh of everything around me. We ended up going to a bar and drinking beer. The conditions were just too harsh to draw.


Hey kids! I've just posted another great interview with designer and illustrator (and longtime SFG'er) Ridd Sorensen. Among other things, Ridd is the Senior Director for the acclaimed Cartoon Network/Teletoon series 'Atomic Betty'. A fantastic interview with a great talent. Be sure to click on over and check it out.


Latest venture...

Just finished the cover for my wife's (and her brother's) upcoming lullaby album. Got to utilize some texures from the 'Crumble. Crackle. Burn' book from Von Glitschka. You can hear some clips at their site (you'll need to scroll down a bit to find the link)... .

Fountain pens

One of the most frequent question I get about my drawings are of what type of pens I use, the answer is I use a selection of self design fountain pens. According to what mood I'm in at the moment, this is some of the pens I've used this week

I scanned in a pic from my sketchbook of Hadji from Johnny Quest. I Netflixed the new JQ DVD's and sketched this out, it was fun to relive my childhood memories of watching this show. The style of the show was ahead of it's time with amazing designs by Alex Toth.
