Sticker fun!

As I said before I sketch a lot of things that you don't normally see here. Few people know I have a thing for nice vinyl stickers. The nicer the design and ink, the more I love them. To keep myself artistically busy at work I randomly come up with assignments for myself. This is just one of those. A girl I used to work with was part of the roller derby here in AZ. And I guess in my conversations with her the idea came up that doing a sticker line for the different teams would be a nice challenge. So here are just a couple of the designs I came up with when sketching. True to form my sketches tend to be more fully developed. But I always like to see exactly how it would be layed out before taking them into Illustrator.
Well, hope you enjoy.

Haven't turned my back on you.

I would first like to thank all of you for coming back time and time again to this blog and checking it out. I know I don't update as often as I should. I should be able to load up ten times the work that I do here. Perhaps I should. But a lot of what I do is either not permitted (via contracts and such) or is kind of not good enough in my eyes to force on you all. But yet you still check up on me. For that I thank you so much. You all are truely great to me.
I do sketch a lot more than I post. I mean a lot more. I wonder if you want to see the random stuff I sketch. Some of it is graphic design oriented and some of it is illustrative. But I always think that because it isn't clean or good necessarily, that you don't want to see it. Would you only want to see the stuff I think is good? Or would you rather have more stuff and see a nugget of art wash up as it does sometimes? I post my doodles of characters from time to time, but I wonder if anyone wants to see those? If any of you have any feeling on this matter, please, let me know. Then I will take everything into consideration and see what I can do about all this.Thank you again for checking in.
