Fire Put-Er-Outter

Santino asked me this morning to design the vehicle(s) I would use to extinguish the fires in California. I went with an older plane that had the ability to dump several thousand gallons of water or other extinguishing chemical, but with the ability of a quick reload by diving into a large body of water and instantly refilling its compartment, like a pelican diving for fish, and be ready for another run. I also have these smaller pods that jettison from the tail end of the plane that are propelled by the water that they carry to extinguish smaller patches of fires, much like a fire sprinkler you'd find in the ceiling.

1962 Ferrari GTO

A friend at work and I decided that we'd start doing warm up drawings in the mornings. We'll pick a car, person or whatever and spend no more than five minutes on it. Although this was done in the late afternoon, we will start doing them in the morning. This was my caricature of Santino's (my co-worker's) favorite car of all time.

Warm Ups and Sketchbook

Twice a month I have the opportunity to do a little figure drawing. Last night's model was particularly unique. These are all charcoal pencil on smooth newsprint and range from 3 min. to 10 min.
