Maxfield's Wall

Maxfield gets 'physical'... as his new-found hobby becomes more
of a habit, our young graffiti artist's creations will begin to take on
an undeniably psychedelic tone. This will be completed as a large
watercolor painting.

Werewolf & DJ

Sketch for closing 1.5 seconds... With their differences (and dinner)
behind them, our two heroes will finally 'break' out in celebration. We'll
flip outside and pull away from the station window as they continue their
dance in silhouette.

Both Horton and 'Pete's Windmill' are such iconic images, I didn't
have to show that much of either. However, I have now made some
enhancements after some feedback and much improved, I think.

Maxfield Endpapers

These are rough sketches for endpaper designs to appear
inside the front and back covers of the Maxfield McCoy kid's book.
I'll probably finish these as black and gray tonal drawings with
white chalk accents on pale gray pastel paper.

Radio Tower

This is a storyboard, rendered in Google Sketchup, for the opening
sequence of the Werewolf animation. Establishing the broadcast tower
and full moon, then following the ROXY.FM glowing neon letters down,
through the stained glass skylight and into the station.

SugarCubes continues to evolve. The pencil drawings have
certainly made for a softer look. I will create some artwork for
the logotype for next week.

Maxfield pg.1

An almost finished first page for the Maxfield McCoy Graffiti Kid book.
As we'll soon discover, Maxfield's ever present red scarf (he wears his
winter clothes all summer) defies the laws of graviity. And his little terrier,
Chess, has a perfectly symmetrical checkerboard coat.

I have just started to design the ROXY.FM broadcast studio
for the Werewolf animation in Google Sketchup.
The 3D program
is of great assistance in creating this kind of environment.

Here's the second installment in the reactivated 'SugarCube'
I will continue to post them every Wednesday!

Sign Attack!

Here is another rough double page spread for the Graffiti Kid story
which is now well underway. Maxfield's continual disregard for the clear
warning signs he's been receiving will finally catch up with him, resulting
in an all out 'sign attack'.

I am in the process of reviving a single frame comic I used to send
to clients (along with an invoice) called SugarCubes. I'll post one every
Wednesday in the future. They're just meant to be whimsical.

More Messages for Maxfield

In this double page spread for the 'Graffiti Kid' story, Maxfield begins
to suspect that all of the hand lettered signage in the city is being directed
personally at him; subconsciously reminding of moral lessons he's
already learned but chosen to ignore. I'll finish with ball point pens, black
PrismaColor pencil and watercolours.
