sea creatures and nautical things

We needed some sketches of sea creatures and other nautical items for a project at work. Here are some of my favorites that I’ve done so far. I’m really glad I’m getting a chance to do this, because I’ve been inspired a lot lately by nautical designs in the sketches I was doing for fun. Now I have a professional outlet for that inspiration. It’s always exciting when your work and fun collide. The results are always awesome. I can’t wait to see what it all looks like finalized.

All the sketches were done with a ball point pen.

This week I just downloaded an app for my iPad and iPhone called Zen Brush. It’s really slick and I’ve been playing around, just trying to get a feel for it, and I’ve been incredibly impressed with my preliminary results. I can’t wait to see what I am really capable of using this tool.
