Daily 11: Jan 2-8

I can't begin to tell you how productive 2011 has been! 5/3 of my days were spent working on Giant Thinkwell's new game, or doodling. Great start with lots of content for my blog to come this year..

You can see my daily submissions or view everyone's daily submissions here at The Daily 11.

The Daily 11

Banner by Adam Laurie

A resolution for 2011 was to doodle every single day. It turns out that 4 of my friends had that same resolution, so we decided to put together a blog called 'The Daily 11'.

In the past, it's been known that us creatives claim that we will do a daily contribution and keep up with it, but alas life gets in the way and we fail.

We need some accountability, harassment & encouragement!

That's why Dan Savage, Adam Laurie, Mihai Cernusca, Bryan Perozo and myself have made a blood oath that we will indeed do at least one doodle, zombie or take one new picture and post it here each day. 3 strikes and we fail. Last man standing gets everlasting life.

Please feel free to harass, encourage and crit to give us the juices to follow through to the end of the year!


I will post all of my week's submissions at the end of each week here, but you can see all of ours posted daily on the other blog.

Check it out at TheDaily11.com

Here was my Jan 1st doodle of the 4 of them haunting me to DRAW!

Macbug doodle

Haven't updated in ages, as I've been inundated with awesome projects (and somewhat lazy with hitting submit). Can't wait to divulge what I've been up to! Definitely the best chapters of my creative life thus far.

This was a quick doodle this evening on my default Mac wallpaper.


Definition of Doodle

“If we sketched Doodling into a family tree, it could be the cousin of comics, the child of activism, and the nephew of Graffiti (an uncle who encouraged it to sneak out of the house at night and acquire a shared addiction to big walls and the adrenaline rush of personal risk.)

A doodle is defined as an unfocused drawing, which is made almost subconsciously; the mind preoccupied or struggling to deny distraction. A doodle takes shape in the void, finding form from the shadows. Doodle as defense.”

- Harlan Levey


Rayola - ColorInk Book

Here's a quick little render I did for this DIY periodical called "ColorInk Book". There are some awesome artists with awesome submissions for you to color up! I highly suggest picking one up.

They have a character called 'Rayloa' that frequently an artist's take applied to him. This is my take, with lots of gradient lovin' of course!

Here is the wireframe of the gradients in Illustrator:

Be on the lookout for the next issue if you'd like to color up some of my doodles 'n characters!
