Sketch #226

Sketch #226

So I decided to lose the “a-day” part of my sketch-a-day since it is obviously not happening every day. While I do sketch most days, some of it is for “secret projects” I can’t post and others are scribbles done in the middle of night in darkness so I don’t forget an idea that has made its way to me at a very inconvenient time. In addition I am out of the studio a lot lately and don’t make it to the computer on those days to do any posting.  So anyway, I’ll keep numbering them and posting them but I’ll drop the whole “daily” pretense 😛

Facebook London Mural Pics & Timelapse Video

I just returned from a trip to London to paint a mural at Facebook’s London office. It was a lot of fun and the people in the office were very friendly and welcoming. Below are some pics and a timelapse video:

Leaving in just a bit for London (to stomp around Great Britain and paint a mural at Facebook’s London office). I’ll be posting work-in-progress pics and a few other shots as well during the next 10 days.

Here’s a sketch of a new character that shows up briefly in “The Imp Lands” Issue #2 that I am currently trying to work on in my nearly non-existent free time. Sketch-A-Day #225. ©2014 Justin Hillgrove.

This sketch was a collaboration between myself and my friend and fellow artist, Jesse link ( ). Sitting in our respective booths at opposite ends of the Fremont Fair last weekend we passed this page back and forth a couple times taking turns sketching on it.
