A Logo? New Stuff? Painter?

Mike Laughead Logo
I made up a logo for myself. This could totally change next week. Would it look good on a shirt?

Insight Drinks on Teeth
This is a recent spot illustration for Insight Magazine. The article is about the effects of certain drinks (including sports drinks) on teeth.

Guy 100
Girl 100
I'm trying to push myself to do more characters that have normal adult proportions so I can find more work in the magazine sector of publishing.

Pollywog Guy
This is my first try at painter. I used a lot of the same techniques that I use in photoshop so it went pretty easy for me.

Watercolor Thing
I tried some watercolor stuff in Painter. I like some of the effects quite a bit, especially the texture of the salt brush.

Rain in China, Sketches, Pumpkins and Hair Pulling

Guide Girl In China
Illustration for Guide Magazine. The article was about a family vacationing in China that helped a man that was in a car accident there. I'm really happy with the way the rain turned out.

Sketches BIG
Some recent sketches done one night after the girls and my wife went to sleep. I am really thinking about using the lightning-bolt guy as a logo, I like it a lot. If anyone wants to see more of any of these characters please just tell me which one and I'll keep drawing him/her/it.

Harry Potter Pumpkin Design
This was my design for one of our Halloween pumpkins. My favorite part is the sorting hat.

Actual Pumpkin
This is the actual carved pumpkin + a few days, which = kinda junky. Though I had to make some edits while I was carving (to simplify) I am sad that the wand and the bottom of Harry's face are gone in this pic. They didn't look bad when I first carved them.

Penelope Pulls Hair
My baby is cute but beware, she can also hurt you pretty bad. (Note the expression of pain on my face. She pulls hair like no other.)
