I recently finished a 30 day trip to the Yucatan peninsula in Mexico.  We did a lot of exploring of Mayan temple sites including one called Calakmul.  This particular temple site is still very much surrounded by the jungle.  There is only one road that leads in to Calakmul  from the main highway, and it takes an hour to drive in to reach it once you start in.  Anyways, there's a lot of wild life there:  Howler monkeys, Spider monkeys, Tucans, and lots of bats.  While we were in this jungle area, we made a trip to see a cave that is home to what has to be millions of bats.  During the evening, which is their active feeding time, we watched as what started out as a trickle of some bats turned into a huge swirling swarm of what looked like a tornado of bats rising into the air as they exited the cave.  This went on for an awesome half hour!

Anyways, I brought along a small sketch book and did a couple sketches of some bats.  I did these while we were traveling on a bus from Tulum to Valladolid.  They're a little goofy and certainly not accurate, but they were fun to do.

even yet more sketches...

here's some more sketches. these were originally printed in the Meathaus Sketchbook go for the gold along with a some of the stuff i posted here a while ago.

I've noticed that something i tend to draw alot is little people inside of people, or people using animal heads as hats. when i doodle and don't think about it it's something that i draw over and over again.

here are some post its with the same theme.
eventually I'd like to do something with this idea. a story or animation but I'm not quite sure what it's all about yet so that remains to be a project for the future.

Cyan Sea

I've had this color scheme in my head for a few months now. And I wanted to actually do something with it. Originally, I had had a dream in which I was walking across this cyan sea on a high, sheer, and magenta land bridge on which there were patches of violet grass. That said, I didn't dream of any blue fauns, but I thought he fit nicely into this. . .Disney Princesses color scheme I farted out of my brain. I think it's safe to say that the next thing I illustrate is going to be horrifyingly violent. . .or maybe just smutty. I don't know, but I feel way too warm and fuzzy after making this. It's weird. :P Honestly I try to see it while keeping in mind the music I listened too through it's entire creation. Basically, LOTS of Animal Collective. I think I had their entire discography on continuous loop. So look at this less as children's book material and more as that one time when you were tripping balls! :P

So, I mentioned Animal Collective had alot to do with how this one came out. I specifically hold this song responsible, it's called: "The Purple Bottle" and it's an adorable love song, easily one of my favorite songs by the band. There's so much going on in it to make it sound the way it does, I kind of like picturing it being played by lots of little creatures in classic cartoon fashion. But there it is, an explanation. :P
