I like drawing the backs of things, the parts of products that aren’t meant to be seen on a regular basis. I did this drawing a few weeks ago, and now I can’t remember what body part or accessory it actually is!

I used to do self portraits all the time…haven’t done one in a while and what I notice most is that my skin has changed. More wrinkles, more folds. In my 30′s I still looked like I was in my twenties. I think I’m catching up with myself and starting to look my age. Yikes.
I was going through old work, looking for appropriate samples for a possible job and I found this character sketch from the early days of working on The Seems.
His name is Simly, and he’s a resident of The Seems. He’s a combination Mr. Fix-It/Gal Friday, intended as comedy relief. If the books had sold better, that the writers (John Hulme & Mike Wexler) and I could have made a graphic novel focusing on Simly. Although I likely would have gotten tired of drawing all his gear panel after panel.

Here is a sketch from book 2. And here’s a link to book one. I’m working like mad on the final paintings which are due in February. Wish me luck!
