Pup sketches, internships, and dinner party menus.

Well hello again everybody! It’s been too long between posts so I’m going to try my damnedest to get two of them up and written today.

I recently started interning at CoPilot Creative and have really been enjoying it. I honestly had to think long and hard about whether or not I wanted to take an unpaid internship, but in the end I decided the experience and free lunches were worth it. The very first day I was doing things that I would have never done on my own, liking making banner ads,editing large brochures in Indesign, and creating Ebooks.

I get to look at this as often as I want.

On Tuesday, Austin shot me an email from a lady at the Colorado Springs Independent who was looking for a part time graphic designer to help with ad layout through the end of the month.

By the end of the day I had myself a job at the newspaper! I’m pretty damn excited to be quite honest.

Chardog

Look at his Eyebrows!

After seeing a post on Pinterest that Sarah found a while back we randomly add eyebrows to Char god. Doesn’t he look great?

I mean come on!

Pad Se Ew

Pad Se Ew. I’m getting pretty good at making Thai food and using my wok.

I’m also getting quite good at making Thai food in the wok, as you can see by the Pad Se Ew pictured above. Protip: The trick to getting authentic tasting Pad Se Ew is to really crisp the noodles. You want to get a nice toasty flavor on everything.

Devin and Sarah menu for lunch with Fixer Creative

We had Fixer Creative at our house for lunch one Sunday. We had New Mexico style green enchiladas and lemon brownies.

We had Fixer Creative over for lunch one Sunday. It was lovely and we’re looking forward having lunch with them again.

I’ve wanted to do an art piece like this for quite some time and I finally got around to doing an early sketch. Looks pretty good eh?

Markers and watercolors!

I’ve been working with markers more as a start for later illustration work. See the following.

I love Hall & Oates

You seeing those handsome mugs? I’m thinking of doing a series of marker drawings of album covers that I like.

Drawing those pups

I’m working on developing a style that I like. It’s always a work in progress.

More work on Paper.

Paper is fun/frustrating with its color limitations. You have to mix colors and pens to get the desired colors. Notice how I made two different purples by using the wash with a white pen stroke and a purple pen stroke.

Here are the flowers IRL.

Ok. That’s about it for now. Catch you on the flip side (later)
