My space is a bit dark, so I have added some lights. I think I need to put a spot lights on the masks, maybe a blinking light. Today is “Lunch Truck Thursday” I hope someone takes home the Thunder Lizard. If not I’m going to send it to the Hive in LA, see what those guy can do with it.

Errrt Vroom, and Eeeeeei I received an address from an old friend and when i goggled it (i’m not a stalker) this is what i saw in my head. I had to make this animation. I sure I’m not alone on this.
Afternoon project with TATA: On a rainy afternoon they make monsters out of play-dough and colored toothpicks. The stories they come up about them are awesome I wished I had written it down. The monsters have been living on a “drying” shelf for months and I was going to toss them out during a “people are coming over” cleaning, but I stopped and took some pictures first. I hope the boys, in time, learn to forgive me for tossing them out. 😉 Monster 001: Monster 002: Monster 003:
Here is the first collection of scaryfriends… by Alex Feliciano. a series of masks, faces, bears, rabbits, dogs, and monsters. They have sold out. Second collection coming early 2014.
Found this Today via http://thecardboardcollective.com/….. Welcome to the 2013 Cardboard Costume Challenge! Their Mission? to inspire the making of awesome handmade cardboard costumes. They have decided that this year they wanted to adopt a non-commercial, non-competitive approach (less contest, more spirit tunnel) AND to make the event more kid-centered(it’s such a valuable design opportunity for kids.) also wanted encourage adults, who maybe don’t own a sewing machine, or don’t think of themselves as “creative” to branch out and try dabbling in cardboard. more at… http://thecardboardcollective.com/

This weekend got the engine running, kids helped and there was lots of white smoke (the kids thought it was neat). The Fix: Replaced the spark plug and drained the gas and oil out, refilled the gas and oil. Started with a little “starter spray” in the carburetor. From the amount of oil drained out it looks like the case was over full. It’s running like a top now.
Dire wolf head for the wall. I started with my dog as a model, and tried to keep it simple. Also keeping supplies simple: a pencil, a box cutter, t square, Elmer’s glue and some scotch tape. – I quickly sketched my dog, Maggie’s profile. In the picture below you can see it cut out. I used the two profilesI cut to guide the build. Internal supports where added to so pieces could be built independently them jointed after they where ridged. This is the the head now, I plan to smooth and paint while maintaining a very square profile. …
A few images from my phone, using sketchbookPro, by AutoDesk. Bugs and Germs. More Bugs and Germs. Rocket Fish, or TerraFish Thinking about You. Box Amp. Germ all grown up Close up of our friendly Germ. The not so nice germ. This germ is responsible for bad breath. Red face with the “reflection tool” sketchbook pro. More TerrorFish, with mouth parasite. This germ like to live on your butt, do not mix with bad breath germ, they don’t like competition. Full view of friendly germ, this one …
This spring I decided to landscaping the back yard. I cut a young oaks to bring more light into the yard. I am reusing it in the landscaping as hand rails and posts. I was moving quickly so I opted to just drop them in a hole and pack in rocks instead of using concrete. Well the branches and trunks are growing, I don’t know what’s happening under ground, but parts above ground are sprouting and the whole thing looks very surreal.
Shirts for D’s Class 2012, 100 days of School. Pencil, then redrawn in Illustrator with a Wacom tablet, lastly printed on iron-on paper. The kids had a great time.
I was drawing the model and a gentle man from the back wondered up in front of everyone and started drawing. This is his butt.
Some of my paintings feature a dog. I like to use “Cow“, he was a big Black, white and tan dog. You can see him in the painting (BlueRoom, left, 2009). He is in the background and he is in the painting on the wall, laying down between the red chairs. I did a piece dedicated to the dreams he might have had, he was a very active sleeper. I thought about it and tried to imagine what smells would look like. Below is a detail (Cow’s Dreamscape, 3of3, 2008) of Cow. The triptych has changed over time and givin me chances …

Hola, So I have been advising clients away from skeuomorphism in thier designs. You may ask, “Why would you do that, skeuomorphism is dope.” and your right it is cool, but when we go to production the tangental aspect is quickly overshadowed by business needs and dynamic integration quickly blows up budgets. It looks great in the comp, but many times ends up getting scrapped in production. I love design for design sake, (it’s called art) and in time skeuomorphism design will settle into a nice place so will “flat”. “Flat” for now, will be the new rounded corner. It …
So today I lost my iPhone (was in wife’s car) and I was kinda lost with out it. But a realized that this thing was more than a reader and I am taking the time to use it to it’s full potential, or at least installing a backup set of apps. I even sketched an angry robot for this post.
Jason was giving me the gas face from acoss the table.

Alex feliciano has been working on some new paintings. They are a series of fun exercises, acrylic on cardboard.
Baby Rocket is coming, maybe. In the hospital now. This is a dry run we may be going home soon. “Doctor” wants to monitor the baby, mom is having lots of contractions and blood pressure is high. We may spend the night. Little Pistol is with his Aunt and very excited to have sleepover. Special thanks to Aunt and Tata!

John, Michi and Alex are working. The “Tenchu” painting is in john’s hands now, Michi has “The chicken lamp” and I am working on “skull 5”. I would like you to understand how this process works. You may find it hard at first, but the short answer is we paint over and on each others work. This is something requiring a great deal of trust. Our process is as much a collaboration as it is a critic on the work itself a commentary that carries with it a wet brush. So the painting passes from artist to artist each editing, …
It is here The ONE by Apogee Electronics. “With ONE, you can record a single channel of audio using the specially tuned enclosure microphone, an instrument input for guitar, bass, or keyboard, or a world-class microphone preamp input. Listening with ONE is an entirely new experience as well. Hear your recordings and your iTunes library with incredible dimension and clarity through ONE’s studio-quality stereo output.” It was an honor and privilege to work along side the marketing team that came up with this little honey. I know first hand how hard they work to bring products like this to the …
After moving to Atlanta from LA I was worried that I would have trouble finding a good job. After a few interviews I really started to worry about the job market. Then I interviewed with the team at Sparks Grove, wow sweet. I will be posting goodies and samples soon. I have also been given the green light from a previous project and I will be add the drawings to my portfolio.
Working coast to coast with Tindel, Michi, Feliciano, Maxwell and Kowalski, shows at the new Madman studios
These spreads are from the “all about lizard” book. The Lizard book was started in 1997 when I started chronicling the adventures of at the time my lizard “frog”. He was not a good pet, I set him free in 1999 and wish him the best. I continue to work in this sketchbook off and on. Some sections gap weeks others years. I will be photographing and sharing as part of a “sketchbook Friday” back fill. Leave a comment and tell me what you think. Pages 62 – 63 Pages 64 – 65 Pages 66 – 67
