sketchbook: europe!

So, these are some of the sketches I did for my girlfriend as an anniversary present, from our whirlwind tour of western Europe. I've taken some... artistic license with the landscapes. I'm not certain how many jobs this collection will land me, but I'm hoping for at least a few "awww"s from my readers (I'm looking at you, Brittney Lee).

Paris ala Akira. Drawn during a 9 hour layover.

Mont St. Michel. Holy crap?

Perigeux, where fun goes to die. Fantastic duck though.

Vernazza of the Cinque Terre. It is just really... really nice being there.

Greve, where they make the strong stuff.

Florence, home to the David and the David's surprisingly inferior copy.

Venice, an inspiration for Enrico Casarosa and civil engineers alike.

Caerphilly Castle. It's Welsh!

Illustrations! All for fun, so far none for profit.
Except the ones my friends have bought prints of.

From the photography of Brian Lio.

There was a time when I illustrated little else besides robots.


From my days of looking at nothing but Shaolin temples.

The template for building decoration on my family farm.

These boots were made for kicking.

Curly Brace, of Dokutsu Monogatari.

Quote, of Dokutsu Monogatari.

The wily and elusive Bumble Bear.

Show me... pensive.

Proper Rugby can only be played with a proper mustache.


The often imitated, never intimidated, Brittney F*ing Lee.

Joe ninja, as stylish as ever.



Tokyo for beginners.

The birds are after your children!

Formality is next to cleanliness.
