Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day! 

I'm re-posting this old piece because it best fits for today. Thanks to my dad and grandpa as well as all the other fathers out there for working so hard so support your families! Thanks!

Story behind this drawing:
I was having a really bad day and went off on a walk in our Chicago neighborhood. A father was out on this beautiful day with his kids wearing blankets as capes. The little girl on his shoulders looked at me and said, "I'm flying! I'm flying!" Their happiness was quite contagious and it turned my day around!

If you have noticed a total lack of new posts, you're correct. I have been very busy on a large job and any free time has been spent with family. (Now you know where our hard work ethic comes from!) Hopefully I will get back to drawing for fun soon! Please come back and visit this blog and our facebook page! :)

Calabash Animation Reel 2015

We have been fortunate to work with Calabash Animation as independent contractors for over 9 1/2 years now. It has been interesting switching from doing all hand drawn animation on paper to all digital using Toon Boom Harmony. Please take a look at Calabash's newest animation reel. It's pretty fun!

Elsa and Anna

Here's my first Disney princess fan art since the 90s! This was long overdue. ;)

Elsa and Anna Sketch

I FINALLY gave in and did a piece of fan art for Frozen. Better late than never! ;) Here's the sketch, and I will be posting the final color illustration tonight or tomorrow. 

It's my first Disney princess drawing since high school! This brings back memories of filling sketchbook after sketchbook of Disney characters through grade school and high school. :)

sketch of young woman

Trying to get back into sketching for FUN! We're usually either working intense animation jobs or working on commissions. It's hard to get back into it and find inspiration. Today I got a haircut and my stylist was telling me how to do my hair like this. Very mundane, but that's what came out. lol
