 I'm not much of a drawer but I thought I'd give J&D a try.

I really like bunnies and bikes and glasses and bandanas; 
so I threw them all in.

So here tis...

My power animal... is in hibernation!
I'm fierce, I promise--it's just hard when it's this cold out!

Monday, December 27, 2010


Hello everyone!!
So, I think we've all been pretty busy since we returned home from CCS. I hope everyone had a great Christmas!!
Unfortunately, I haven't finished the first J&D (YET!!) It is almost done! I wanted to show some sketches because I am going to be out of town basically from this wednesday till next friday!
Marie Antoineete (which I am painting with watercolor) and my power animal is a chipmunk. They are good natured, like nuts, store things, and like to scurry. (just like me) Keep on doing art and enjoy the break!!

Here's the process and pencil for the new assignment. I'm going to ink it soon and make it into my blog's banner - I'll update this post with it when I'm done. I'm making a second one with a penguin for a portfolio I'll send to Penguin publishing (hopefully).

So yeah! Make art everyday guys!


 Here it is! My power animal is a Magikarp . . .

What is your power animal?

Well no one, yes that includes me, has posted their sexy history piece.  But i am working on it and I hope that all of you are too! but I figured that I would go ahead and post the topic for this weeks piece.  SOOOOOOO... This week, you are to design a piece with an animal that represents you. make it fun, funny, personified, and most of all... make it you.

Time to Pull on Your Fishnets, Abe

Hello, hello. The first topic for Jerk and Draw: WINTER BREAK EDITION is:


Seasonally appropriate, no?

Ben Franklin. Clearly there is no one sexier.

SO. Dress your favorite historical figure up in your favorite dominatrix gear and post it here next Tuesday!

Wednesday, December 1, 2010



So, the semester is coming to a close, and that long, three-week stretch of Winter Break is rapidly approaching (if you haven't noticed that light at the end of this dark tunnel of finals). I don't know about you guys, but finding time to sketch for fun was hard for me (that might have been, in part, because of the movies and Smash Bros sessions. I don't know).

So, instead of rotting away in our respective basements this break, myself and a few other contributors, were thinking, "HEY WHY DON'T WE RESTART JERK AND DRAW?"--at least for the break before second semester madness start, to keep that art stuff going on.

I thought I'd post this a few weeks ahead of time in my December Mania, to get it out there, and maybe get you all interested in rejoining if you break doesn't involve you chopping off your hands.
Ex.1 of an activity that you can lose your hand doing
Ex.2 of hand-losing activity (Thanks Norman)

I'll post a topic the first Tuesday of break to get this started!

Oh hello, Jerk and Draw! So I finally caught up on the assignment. Here they are: Star Wars, Dreams, and Animal Instinct.


I just decided to sex up Chewbacca a bit.

I threw in a spazzy Princess Leia for goo measure, as well.


I wasn't quite sure where to go with this one, so I decided to think of a reoccurring dream. This summer the whole I'M-PREGNANT-HOW-DID-THAT-HAPPEN-SHIT-THAT'S-INCONVENIENT dream happened all too often.


First thing I thought of was those silly turkeys, drowning in the rain.

Silly, silly turkeys.

dreams 2

So!! I finally finished the other half of my dreams water color piece....

The boy kind of reminds me of Archie... from Betty and Veronica? :P

Friday, July 30, 2010

new topic?

So no one was even chosen but I say, work on what you want to work on!! We only have about a month or so left before school starts. Finish up your jerk and draws and do some personal pieces, and post them here!! Have a great rest of the summer!

Animal instinct?

I am going to offer you a sketch I did this week for the challenge! I am still trying to find time to finish the other half my last jerk and draw, but it'll get done eventually!


I am super ashamed that I haven't finished the last two Jerk and Draws. I promise i will finish them and post them soon >

In the meantime, Here are some creepy imsorryfornotposting birds that I drew during perspective last semester...

Animal Instinct

So the new topic is "Animal Instinct"!
The task is very simple...
pick a subject and have it take on some animal characteristic or quality.

and I would like the choice to not be a furry mainly because that is really overdone. If it is a furry, at least make it more interesting than the many, many pieces on websites like Deviantart.

Also I'm sorry I didn't update and have not really submitted anything... the summer has been distracting.

I will be working on this one and I can't wait to see what you guys put up!

I think I need to be more specific for what I meant by "subject".
You are free to do anthropomorphic creatures, the note about furries was to broaden the scope. You are also free to pay homage to creatures of the half man - half animal nature or combine things up. A subject can be anything from plants, weather, robots, etc. I just wanna see some RAWR in it. BE FIERCE!

The examples above are from one of my fav artists, Yoshitaka Amano. The first one is the robotic horse from Vampire Hunter D, I couldn't find a illustration that showed the detail so this is a photo of a character model. The second one is from Guin Saga, about mysterious warrior Guin who has a leopard mask magically affixed to his head.

Wednesday, July 21, 2010


I'm actually doing two pieces for this topic (which is why there is tape on one side of the illustration)... this is the first half!! It's a little girl's dream, water color and gouache!

Next Person

Next person to choose a topic for Jerk and Draw...
Danni Wu!

Something about the mind, and what it stirs up while you sleep. So many dreams are really narrative/ seem to have some kind of story line, so that would be cool if you could see some kind of story in the picture about whats happening in the dream. Dreams, the affects of dreams, basically the most bizarre feelings you can put onto paper/ digital.

And I guess have it involving someone, maybe yourself? Or anyone. They're your dreams.

Beth's Star Wars


Weird chicken/scarecrow/owl/alien/...thing

This theme allowed me to do something that Scott Robertson talked about in his lecture last semester...


Yeah... I had fun with these and I liked this one the best. Unfortunately, I've been working on portraits a lot this week so i didn't spend a ton of time on this piece. I like the loose style though... I'm trying to cultivate it currently...


star wars sketch

Didn't have time to do a full on piece so I whipped up a sketch!

Friday, July 9, 2010


well seen as we all love Illustration so much, and love to do the human body, and robots I have the idea that for this assignment we should design ur own character for STAR WARS, be it for the Jedi or the Sith lord, its up to u, or it could be a robot Lik R2 the sky Is the limit, have fun guys, and the next person to pick the topic is...LUKE MACK!!!!!

Ooh Baby Baby

Look at this red hot babe-- workin' it in the 21st century.

I cannot tell you how many disturbing pictures I saw while looking for reference for this theme. Especially since my first thought was skin disease.

Beth's Little Lady

Can I just tell you...


At first I was just going to do some art nouveau inspired 60's poster design with some beautiful red woman but then I was looking at some arts on the interwebs and came across this beautiful piece of a face surrounded by a cloak of fabric that had these fictional animals all interwoven in it. I thought it was really beautiful and just doodled something like it in my sketchbook.

Later, I was all "oh... The turban kinda reminds me of a rose" and then I was all "THIS WILL WORK FOR LADY IN RED!!!"

I have to say, after seeing Millie's piece I really wanted to turn out something cool and I'm quite proud of this.

Process is on my blog :)

Sorry it's late. The camera was being held captive. Since I can now raise my arm about my head and can finish my finals I was more focused on those this week. I didn't get beyond these little drawings of robots, which were just to figure out what robot I wanted to use in a final piece.

alien pizza party


That's right folks...
It is your mission to create a piece that combines these ingredients for the ultimate alien pizza party.

Also, Beth you get to choose the next topic!

a boy and his dog

This is my robot piece!! I mean, if I had a robot... it would definitely be a robot dog.
