A Giant Dump

Whether train, plane, or automobile, you'll probably find me sketching, trying to achieve some level of mastery where I don't even need to think, and being an amazing artist is just second-nature effortlessness. In pursuit of that Excellence I've made just one discovery--
 I'm an idiot.
The more I sketch, the more I learn, And the more I learn, the more knowledge I have to recall and really consider while shading her upper lip or whatever on a bouncy bus.
So! Instead of achieving effortlessness, I'm achieving the opposite--being able to put in more effort, more thought, more design. I still have a heck of a long way to go to be Excellent, but here are a bunch of drawings from over the course of the last year.
Enjoy. Or don't. Cheers.

WATA-CALA.

Some water colors I've finally gotten around to scanning in--Morro Bay, Descanso Gardens, Lacy Park, a few from Spain (whilst sailing, using beer instead of water-- photo courtesy of Francesca Garattoni), wildfire smoke seen from my balcony in Pasadena, Downtown LA, camping at Mt. Pinos, and one Frazetta master copy. 
The End.

Joe Wright's PRIDE & PREJUDICE

I've been a big fan of the compositions & lighting in this movie and decided to use some new brushes to do some quick film studies. I realized at some point my aspect ratio was wrong, so forgive the squish-ed-ness...

My overdue return, with a couple of newbies.

so these were mostly done a few months ago, but then this beautiful baby boy got born:

 That's my new son, Miles Markowski! But real life and work has resumed as usual, back at WB for a time, working on Beware the Batman, a few Green Arrow shorts and a Batman short, all before I start my new job at LEGO!!! Life is good, and super busy, but finally I found time to finish these--
the first is a tribute to all those great old episodes where they land on planets that have a whole Greek/Roman thing:

And the second is a possible fate of the Enterprise as shown to Kirk by the Guardian of Forever! Enjoy!

Also, if there are any Powers-That-Be out there, reading this blog, the amazing Jim Krieg wrote a script...



We'd like to show it to you

Thanks to Thomas Perkins, Glen Murakami, Shane Glines, Zak Plucinski, and Dan Norton for giving me charater-design lessons after hours

Mural Follow Up

After 3 long, grueling sessions, we finally finished painting the 30'x 5' mural I designed in the previous post! It would not have been done, had it not been for the small army of painters I had to help! 

Here are some photos of the werk, courtesy of Miguel Lee, Raina Ramirez and Paul Rogers:
