Negative Thinking Sketch | Final

Sketch by Jacob RuethI finished a new piece today!  I’m very excited about this one as it deals with an important message, and it turned out super awesome.

I was doodling to some tunes in the Brickhaus Cafe in Jefferson, WI again, and a song popped up on my Zune.  I haven’t listened to it in several years.  The band is called “The Death Set” and the song is titled “Negative Thinking”.  Its probably my favorite song on the album but the song got me thinking how important it is to have positive outlets to vent our negativity.

There are these land creatures that realize these water creature’s fear and use that to turn the creatures into their homes.

The little guy on the tongue in the bottom right corner is fishing for an addition to his cool home.

Once I finished the doodle, I sat back in my chair and thought, “Wow, this sort of parallels my current living situation.” Read More…

Box of Demon Voices

Box of Demon Voices 3

I recently uploaded a new illustration on to deviantART called Box of Demon Voices 3.  I made this illustration in Adobe Illustrator CS2, and is 100% vector.

I often get asked what my process is when making an illustration and to be honest with you, it varies from piece to piece.  This one started off as a silly little doodle I made in one of my sketchbooks.  I try and reserve some time to just doodle and you can often find me camped out at a Borders with a sketchbook and my headphones.
