Fire Fly

This has been sitting in my sketchbook for a good while. Couldn't bring myself to finish the stippled background by hand so I completed it in Photoshop.

Mainly just wanted to draw a big bug, but was partially inspired by Hayao Miyazaki's NausicaƤ of the Valley of the Wind. Situated in a post apocalyptic future, it's a story of mankind's struggle for survival against the ever spreading toxic forests and monstrously mutated insects. A great movie and an even better manga. As always, Miyazaki is the master!

The Cyborg of Sargon

This is known as a Lamassu, a celestial being from Mesopotamian mythology. In art, they were depicted as hybrids ~ winged bulls or lions with the head of a human male and considered househould protective spirits of the common Babylonian people. Babylonian history later portrays these bull-men as the protectors of kings and statues of them were often used as gatekeepers. Usually sculpted with five legs to show balance from all angles.

Plip!

Had a lot of fun drawing these little yellow guys back in high school getting into all sorts of zany mishaps. It's basically just one character, but cloned innumerably for narrative purposes. I call 'em Jimmy.

Beaver Blowout!

An older piece, but relevant to the timeless fact: beavers bite back.
