This is my design

A few weeks ago a friend recommended the NBC show Hannibal to me, knowing my love of well-realized characters, and creepy stories that leave you feeling a bit unsettled (as opposed to outright scared). I binged both seasons about as fast as a working father of two can. As is usually the case when some piece of media gets in my brain, the only way to get it out was to draw it. So I made some posters.

If you haven't seen the show, the first season is available to stream on Amazon Prime. It's absurdly gory for a show on a major network--I found myself looking away every few episodes (I'm a bit squeamish when it comes to dismemberment). But the crazy psycho-analysis, visual metaphors, superb acting, and constant winding tension had me hooked. 

I might be putting up these posters on my Society6 page for sale soon if you'd like one.  

All Grown Up

Last year during my Doodle A Day May project I sketched Jake and The Neverland Pirates grown up. It was a fun sketch and idea that never left my head--maybe because my son still watches the show a couple times a week.

I decided to revisit it, but instead of the more angular grown up style in the sketch, I went with something truer to the show. More Aladdin than Pirates of the Caribbean. Fun fact: I noticed while looking at the original kids for reference that Izzy is the only one with pupils. 

Oh yeah, this happened...

I haven't updated the blog in over a month because I had another kid. His name is Wesley, and he's adorable. Newborns don't have many skills aside from gobbling up all your time and energy and looking cute. I've been meaning to get on here and post some pics, but I figured there are few people who follow my blog who don't already follow me elsewhere. Still, for posterity's sake, here's some pics we had taken by the talented Alex Jordan

Wesley is a month old now and doing great, as his is big brother. I still can't believe me, the guy who draws dumb pictures in his (ever shrinking) free time is a father of two sons. I'm pretty lucky, being a dad is awesome.
