sliced bread head and chicken lady

I was asked to design an old woman character, very typical, very uninteresting; as I sketched her jowls and wrinkled chin, a chicken came to mind. So I designed her as a chicken lady. I blame this one on the medication too. There was no way the producer and director were going to accept this. I made a normal old woman into a chicken! I emailed the design anyway, knowing full well it is not at all the character I was given a description of. You can imagine my shock when they told me they liked it. I got away with it again! Bread Head and Chicken Lady!

nerd chic

She's not a nerdy chick, she's nerd chic (pronounced SHEEK).

who needs hair...

...when you have sliced bread!!!! I blame this on all the medication I have been taking. I pinched a nerve in my back and was literally paralyzed for a week. Then in week 2 of the pinched nerve I took tons of muscle relaxants and pain killers, the pills allowed me to stand up and do some work at my computer, but they made me pretty loopy. I came up with this design during that time. The character description I was given made no mention of his hair, bread hair or otherwise...that was all me baby!! I was pretty sure the producer and the director would take one look at this and think I was crazy. But to my surprise...they loved it! Go figure.

with or without an outline

I always found suits and ties to be somewhat surreal. I hate neck ties, I hate wearing suits. But I love drawing them!
