A quick sketch for Illustration Friday, the prompt this week being "instinct":

Get Prepared for Some Weirdness

Here's a thing; I had a kooky idea for a collaborative project for the Militant Illustrators' Association, which is now underway. It goes like this. I asked everyone if they wanted to take part in a pass-around comic kind of thing, and assembled a list of 13 participants. I doubled that number, and now we have the number of pages: 26. So, I did pages 1 and 26, and sent it along. Laura Vaughn, who I tagged to go next, will do pages 2 and 25, tag someone else, and so on until the middle. Crazy, right?

Well here they are, my contributions:

Page 1:

And page 26:

If you wanna keep up with the story as it progresses towards its triumphant middle, you can find it here. That is a subpage of our club website.

Also, here's a little taste of my senior project, written by my very own brother, Nick Cragoe, etched and watercolored by me:

I'm not convinced I like the colored speech bubble. It's subject to change.

That's the first page of the second chapter, so don't feel bad if you don't understand what's happening.

Birthday koalas, and the dealings therewith

This is an ink drawing done for my good friend Sarah for her birthday:

She asked for something involving koalas, and so: a koala who has no idea where he is or how got there. Mission accoplished! Happy birthday, Sarah!

And Finally

Some weird things I drew on construction paper when my other work was causing me to become completely nuts:

Hey, primary colors, how are you?

Round two!

These are just some more complete doodles, fresh from my sketchbook:

There, now! That wasn't so bad.

Now, to beef up this blog with a ton of new things(!):

First, some of my favorite sketches for a book I'm illustrating for my brother:
