Happy Father's Day

From the Fairway Solitaire Facebook page...

"Does life imitate art or art imitate life? Either way, McDivot's creator Jeff Willis looks a lot like McDivot's dad, Raleigh."

A couple of years ago I was asked to help with a design with McDivot as a kid with his Family. It was suggested I draw his dad to look like me.
Can do!
I also decided to name his family after my own. His sister is Teri, Mom is Marjorie and Dad is Raleigh.
Happy Father's Day Pop!

Burnie - Hooked!

I was just pleased with the simple way this image turned out.

I like how the brush stokes on Burnie flowed. Being a simple character with fun expressiveness helped.
The giant fish came out all the better thanks to my coworker, Hamzah Kasom's tutorial on fish anatomy. The colors, the expressions, the composition, the simplicity; it all just worked out and made me happy.

Why would Burnie be stuck to a fish hook? You make up the story.
