IF: Small

Little is Small
The first page of a short comic here:

Little Bridge is a collection of bite sized comic stories. Each story comes from ideas I had as a kid. They are meant for kids (of all ages). Big things from small characters points of view. Sharing some of the little wonders that inspired me. Enjoy!

IF: wiggle

8 bit, title page art from educational software of the early 90's.
Making art with the old applications of the time and hard, square pixels was a skill like nothing artists today have to learn.
This image was made of a couple dozen colors (out of a strict, but at the time super generous - 256 color palette)
It looked good on an 256 color (Mac) monitor.

Old Work that never saw the light of day

Some preproduction images for a project pitch.
The soft grey tones added 2015 for fun.
These were intended as examples of illustrations the camera would pan over while a story was read.

a little scene IF: noise

The scene is a hyper idealized representation of a little water runoff "cove" I remember from childhood adventures. The noise of the tiny rivulet of water back under the grass always seemed to invite exploration - but the only way to get back into the cove was thru the water - and I was too chicken to step in and get soaked.

Some experimentation with a very liquid look to vector based presets
These were meant to simulate the gradated tonal look of sumi ink paint strokes and water application to existing strokes

IF: Passion

As kids my friend and I had a passion for catching turtles…
Combined with a lasting fixation (passion) for sumo style ink painting - and adding to that SAV5 vector paints…
We would see the turtle head peeking up. You could tell how big the turtle was from the head and shadow of its body - sometimes.
