Woohoo! I'm back in Salt Lake City! ... wait a second...

Hey everyone! Last Thursday I got back from the Concept Art workshop that was held in Dallas Texas. Man! I had a blast! I learned tons... and met a lot of awesome fellow artists. You could all check Phil Holland's mini website ( And check out all the madness that happened in four days. It was AWESOME!! Thanks Phil for taking all those pictures!

Giant high fives out to Nonie, Jake, AJ, Jordan, Deanne, Adale, Keikai, Bobby Chiu & Kei Acedera, all the massive Black dudes (especially you Rich), and Tom SKULLS. You guys ROCK!

Okay... well, I don't have much to post... but here they are:

This one's a couple a sketches of Lipa. One of the models that posed for us at the workshop. Freaking great model. She didn't move... AT ALL. Thanks Lipa.

And this one's from life drawing last Saturday of Jodie. I learned a lot from this one. And I'm trying to be a lot more aware of my edges. I'm having a lot of fun with figure drawing... and I've noticed it has helped a ton with what I do at work.

Oh yeah! I printed out a sketchbook! I only printed out one because: 1) its mostly for me to archive and log a little bit of my artistic progression... 2) has a lot of things that was inspired by work stuff... 3) and probably the biggest reason: my mom always wanted me to be legit and publish something.

Here's the cover (Thanks Tom!):

In the coming months or *cough* years *cough*... I hope to "level up" and print out a LVL. 2 Sketchbook. And when I get to sketchbook level 5 or 6... I'll have one open to the public. :)

Well, I guess that's all for updates for now. Cheers!
