The Chalk Cap


Art Stuff at Water Tower Place

I’ve been at the Water Tower Place in Chicago doing live art at The Chalk Cap.

It was a fun time hanging out with people and making some cool custom hats! This idea is pretty cool though, as you can buy a cap with a surface on it where you can draw on it with chalk marker and it can be cleaned off with water!

It was a bit getting used to but it’s good to try out new mediums! I drew names, character requests and whatever else I could think of It was pretty great and I’ll totally show up next time!

Art Streaming News

I have recently taken up doing live streams of my art process, with time lapsed drawing recordings down the line. I live stream every Saturday @ 5pm United States Central Time!

I’m on Twitch, Picarto, Periscope and YouTube. All with the help of Restream!

Here’s a few things I’ve been working on!

Raccoon Month Day 3

Leave a comment

Another batch of Raccoon Month Scans. This was a larger ratio of obscure to known characters to me. First time ever drawing Meeko, or any Disney character actually, unless you count Marvel stuff but I don’t.

Tookit from the 2011 Thundercats show was a notable one to me. I never kept up with anything related to that since I wasn’t really into Thundercats or other 80’s properties. I’ll say it has great designs though, so I will give that show a look when I get the time.

Pith Possum and Obediah the Wonder Raccoon was a new one for me! It’s a pretty funny alternative to Darkwing Duck!

I had never heard of The Raccoon or Nocturnals until I did this and I’d have to say that I’m a new fan now! I love Dan Brereton’s art! I did my best but really I can’t say that I did that art justice and you really need to check out Nocturnals and Dan Brereton’s artwork!
