Extra Texture

Sometimes you look at some old artwork you did, and you think back to the clear idea you had intended, and then see the final product you were able to produce at the time.  Sometimes the gap
between the two versions can get to you.  Such was the case with this piece.  So I dug out the old piece
and added a little extra texcha.  This is really much closer to what I had in mind when I had originally
done the piece five years ago.

Of 'Bots and Bunnies

I've been spending a bit of my extra time drawing robot sketches.  These were done in preparation for a book project I hope to have ready by Comic Con.  More later.

For you comics fans, here's a little drawing I did for for the Stan and Sharon Sakai Benefit Auction.  Stan Sakai, the creator of the comic book Usagi Yojimbo, has had some very tough times recently.  His wife recently acquired a rare debilitating disease.  After an extended stay in the hospital, she is home, but requires 24-hour care.  The cost of the care is more than the Sakai's insurance covers, so The Cartoon Art Professional Society is putting on an  auction to help raise money to offset some of the Sakai's ongoing medical expenses.  Donations can be made here, and the first in a series of benefit auctions will be held beginning March 5 via Ebay under the name "CAPSauction".
