The soulbone's connected to the good drawing bone

Bones are like souls--they only show through sometimes, but it's always at really important junctures.

The tany below is a marvelous work in real life--I spent a good 30 min studying it and whoever sculpted knew his anatomy...very, very well. He didn't have tension and relaxation down, but mass, volume, and twisting where all there. I was looking at a real dinosaur.

These were drawn sometime last summer...along with 3-4 (or more) other sketchbooks of this stuff.

If you're wondering eremotherium is Science for "giant sloth." I had a great joke about what it really means, but am exercising my right to discretion...*sigh* was really funny, but alas, also terribly inappropriate...

Graphic Novels

So my friend Jake Wyatt lent me Blankets-- the first graphic novel I've read. I've never been too into comic books (a sin?), but I have a big story I think would work great for the medium. Seeing as it will take 5 years of my life you will definitely hear about it if it decide to do it.

Early Winter Sunset

Few things are as inspiring as a snowy mountain sunset.

A unique advantage of studying at BYU is having a giant white "Y" on our mountain as we have a perfect reference for what an absolute white looks like in the lighting scheme. Pretty cool.
