Doodling and sketching have been slow lately I know. My wife and I are expecting our addition to our family at any moment so we have been enjoying time together and getting things prepared. In the meantime I have been thinking of what I plan to do for the 2012 year. I know the baby will take up time but I would like to keep the creative juices flowing.

Here are some concepts for a new idea I have, possibly thinking of doing an online comic strip. Not sure what it would be about but here is some concept doodles.

Something totally random. I just really wanted to use some bright colors and do a simple doodle. Enjoy!

This weeks illustration friday topic is grounded. What better than a grounded zombie breaking out of the grave for some delicious brains! BRAINS!!

To help break my creative block I went ahead last night and just did some random doodling, nothing specific just tried to open that block and get the pens and markers flowing again.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I am having a creative blockage and decided to create an influence map.

As artists we are influenced by many things. The reason why we do what we do is the combined application of all the things that influence us. If you ever run into a major creative block and cannot create any new work, changes are you are forgetting what inspired you and need a refresher.

Someone created an Influence Map online, what you should do is fill in the squares with everything that influences you and inspires you to fuel the fire of your creative side, things that just make you want to create.

Take time to refer to it once and a while in case you ever forget what inspires you to do what you do.

Another classic villain from Saturday morning, Skeletor! 

I will leave you with a quote from skeletor: “The alpha and the omega. Death and rebirth. And, as you die, so will I be reborn.”
