b and b

[listening to "take a chance on me" by abba]

only now as i type this does it dawn on me that listening to "take a chance on me" by abba is quite appropriate for the subject of this post. haha!

since the movie comes out tomorrow, i thought it'd be cool to post this character lineup of some Beauty and the Beast characters. i did this a couple of months ago. it's for a project for this company that didn't pan out. i'm very disappointed of course, if u know my love of disney. at the same time, however, there are just lots of disappointments that come with great opportunities, not just in the business of comics but in every part of life. just gotta pick urself up and keep going forward. so since this will never see the light of day, this is as close as it gets.

i did have fun with it tho. i got to draw (and color) Belle and some of her friends the way i'd like to draw them but still grounded in that classic Disney look. would i have loved to work on it forreals, absolutely. but am i angry? nah. if anything, at least it's given me some fun pieces of artwork. =)

dogs dogs

[listening to "thriller" by michael jackson]

been working on a small series of dog illustrations for a pet expo that i attend every year with my IDSTUDIOS crew. it's not the usual convention scene for us. we do it because Jerry and Flash draw pet caricatures (and they're pretty damn good at it too) but just this year it dawned on us that we should have some pet illustrations as prints to sell at our booth to help bring the revenue up a bit. which seemed like a DUH moment. so of course this year we'll only have a handful but next year it should be double the number.

i've got a couple of ideas floating around in my head but these are the ones i've completed so far. i have a week left to finish them up so i should be posting more.

my Patreon supporters get both of these illustrations as high-res downloads. if you're interested, click the big ORANGE BUTTON that says BECOME A PATRON on the top right-hand side and JOIN US!
