As I grow to understand life less and less, I learn to love it more and more.

This here is one of my favorite things in the whole wide world. It's called a 1977 toyota celica! There's nothing cooler and cuter than Japanese muscle cars! I hope one day mine will be nice like this. One day..........

Hey Folks! This here is an Illustration I did inspired by a friend of mine. Hey Shannon! Is this the Jag you like? FLASH is what I used and I still think the program is really amazing! If you haven't tried it yet, I suggest you give it a test drive! Peace!

Flash is a surprisingly fun and incredibly cool program medium for painting! 6 years ago you should have seen me cursing the program, but now it's the only program I feel most comfortable with!
THE WEATHER'S CHANGING here in Hollywood, CA. The sun is so bright and golden. The air crisp and cold. My kind of weather.

I'm so drunk right now! I can't believe I'm doing this at this moment! Whatever! Man! Well I hope you like it. I don't know what it is but it's pretty obvious. But I like to think maybe the house represented industry and the rabbit represents (mother)nature and in the end mother nature will triumph!

I dedicate this one to my pal REE! Thanks for all the inspiration and motivation to start painting again! This is also dedicated to my friend Brenda for inspiring me to paint Don Quixote as a Robot!

LATE NIGHT PAINTINGI forgot how fun painting is! It really helps loosen the old brain to see color and shape for what they are and can become.

"THE RUNAWAYS" I call this one. Sometimes running away can be a good or bad, "+" or "-" thing. Running away from a problem(FEAR) is bad, but from monotonous routine, I think it's okay. My lil' bro calls this method of illustrating with shapes "isometrics" but I think the correct term is "POLYGONIC ISOFORMS."

I hate Vampires! So I drew this to help me sleep at night. Just kidding, I love vampires!
Hey yall! This here is an old piece circa 1998. This is what I used to "draw under stream of consciousness." Sometimes I think I drew better back then!

Friday Night
So instead of going out tonight to hang with Kennedy at a Karioke Bar, I thought I try sketching a few pieces. These two are just my thoughts streaming, not thinking much about it, letting my pencil wander.

I'm having so much fun so far and hopefully I can keep this up!

Hi Everyone,
Welcome to The Smoking Pencil! I'm an animation artist doing character design in "Hollywood." I'm sort of new to the whole cartoon scene, but I've been drawing my whole life and miss drawing stuff that is not work related or needs to fit some formula. I am using this blog to help liberate me from the constraints of the job and explore my inner creative consciousness!
