One of my favorite blogs, Super Punch, held a contest this week to recreate your favorite Scooby Villain. I chose the Beast from the Bottomless Lake and this is my submission.
And as it turns out... I won grand prize! Wow thanks to Super Punch and John Struan for the honor!

On a job at Wildbrain last year I was given the assignment of designing an "Art Deco" music video. Below is some of the concept work I came up with. Eventually the look of the piece went in a new direction, so none of these images were used; but I thought I'd share it here. For reference I looked at a lot of the WPA posters along with the brilliant Bob Staake. It was a lot of fun. It's a look I'd love to return to at a later date and explore more.

Visiting my freind Tod Polson's blog I was inspired by the fantastic birds he is creating for a "Birds of Thailand" show. I thought it was an interesting little project to try my hand at, so I chose the Black-faced Spoonbill.
I have also been looking at a lot of Charley Harper recently ( if you had not guessed). His work is amazingly simple yet very evocative of the actual animal. He doesn't reduce the creatures to cartoon simplifications, he seems to effortlessly crystallize only the important details of the animal into a perfect illustration. Very inspiring.
I am not sure I lived up to either Charley or Tod, but I had fun trying.

Hello to readers of Lambey's Log!!! Thought now that I have a larger audience I gotta start explain my posts.
This is a little fun I had last year. I did a bunch of goofy "redesigns" of everyone's favorite boy/tiger during the pilot for Tigre, and this one I chose to color up. Hope you like.
