Hedgehog. 73a/183.

This is labelled A because I have a sketch for another that I am going to do also. Because i know a number of people will be upset that this isn't cute and hedgehogs are fucking adorable.

I don't think the foam on his mouth turned out as well as i had hoped. oh wells.

Hamster. 72/183.


hamster skulls are hard to draw. I'm glad I decided to do so many of them.

also, I have a new design on threadless:
Baseball for Dummies. - Threadless T-shirts, Nude No More
give it some votes jah?

And don't forget the other one:
A Futile Journey. - Threadless T-shirts, Nude No More

THANKS turkeys.

Hammerhead Shark. 71/183.

So, I was trying to be more loose with my cross hatching, in that i just used it more for texture. Well I don't think it worked too hot, cause it just ended up looking like a shitty high school student's zine drawing, cause all the lines are too loosey goosey. Meh.

Also just drew the head...cause that's the most interesting part? Though I wish I had gone with this prep sketch I did, I kindof like it better.

Overall, kindof a fail.

However, hammerhead sharks are totally crazy. Besides their weirdo heads they are the only sharks to swim in schools and they have itty bitty mouths, compared to their bodies, and as Jun astutely observed, they basically have "Beaker mouths".
Layin' some knowledge on you dumb asses.

Also, don't forget to vote for my shit on threadless.

Hadrosaur. 70/183.

Surprise surprise, super old school cartoony.
Also took a lot of liberties with how this dinosaur actually looks.

Shading those fucking rings was the worst. So I kindof gave up after awhile.
Too much time to make it look right, but not enough benefit in doing that.
Oh well!

A Futile Journey.

Yup. Submitted it to Threadless.
I'll post a link when it gets approved.

Black, white, and two shades of grey.

Great White Shark. 67/183.

Line work for a more complicated drawing. The rest will prolly be done by tomorrow? Saturday at the latest.

This is a reworking of one of the first woodcuts I did. Which I think shows I've gotten better in three years? Maybe? Hopefully?


Drawing is FUN!

Goblin Shark. 65/183.

Pennekamp finally came through.

"Orcas are not sharks but Goblin sharks are. And they look gross.
Also, I heard they smoke weed err'day."

Everything that comes out of his mouth is gold.
So is everything that goes into it.
Like my penis.

My dick is gold.

Gorilla. 66/183.

Alright, well first of all, Mike Pennekamp is supposedly done with another guest drawing but I have yet to receive it, so I am going ahead and moving along and if I dont get in a few days I'll hafto go back and do it myself. Oh and also kill him. Definitely kill him.

Anyway I did the sketch for this before I realized that Jun had obviously done a Gorilla on a building as well and honestly did a better job than me. Oh well. Next time when I do so many parallel lines I should probably use a ruler instead of eyeballing it because the building just looks like SHIT.

Goat. 64/183.

The Immortal AJ Lovell was over so I made him draw me a goat.

Gnu. 63/183.

A Gnu is another name for a Wildebeest.
I was going for a sortof sports logo type of deal on this, but I think it ended up looking too much like a fish. Meh.

Giraffe. 62/183.

Needless to say this took quite awhile, hence the long delay. The next couple animals are going to be WAY less complicated.
I mean it this time.

Anyway when I came to the giraffe it reminded me that I used to draw giraffes alot so here are a couple I did about 5 years ago...Jesus that is a long time ago. To me, at least.
Hopefully I have gotten better over the years.
But probably not.
Oh well. Enjoy or don't, interneters.

apparently giraffes are only capable of facing stage left.

Gila Monster. 61/183.

I actually finished this before I finished the Gecko, because I realized I needed to fucking do some simple things instead of making them all obnoxious. I also wanted to do something with more black and with a more graphic quality. Blahblahblah.

Though I wish I had made this more of a MONSTER, but I didn't think of that until much later. OH WELL!

Gecko. 60/183.

House Gecko. They can be TINY.
Also another example of something that I spent too much time coloring in photoshop.
As you can see be the initial drawing below.

Maybe I wouldn't be so behind if I didn't go overboard so often.

Frog. 59/183.


BONUS! For your enjoyment/consideration:
Flip the frog by Ub Iwerks. Ub Iwerks is awesome.


Not sure on a title for this, pretty much just a study of comic panels and speech bubbles. And also working with halftones.


Maybe a future screenprint.

Frill-necked Lizard. 58/183.

Jesus christ in heaven these fuckers are hard to draw. As you can see I pretty much gave up on trying to draw one realistically and instead concentrated on fucking around with cross hatching.
