Something new along w/Comic Con 07 info



You all know me as the animal guy, which I greatly appreciate and quite proud as well, but I find myself drawing alot of the same animals.. So I decided to try a different rodent this time, a chinchilla, and try a different approach;This is a watercolor and gouache on cardboard. I have been collecting the cardboard inserts from book boxes for instances just like these. The scan does this piece no justice,regardless I am temporarily satisfied w/this first crack.

On to more pressing news, my table is in the same spot this year as it was last, H5, right next to Stephen Silver and in the same aisle as many other greats, Alberto Ruiz, John Nevarez,and many more. From the main entrance it is in the back right and I am listed under Davids Doodles-David Colman. Please come by and check out my book,prints, and good conversation.

See you there.

Chinchilla!! Something must be in the ether, I had to draw one for work a few weeks ago. Have a safe trip down south!

Chinchillas are amazing fluff balls to draw. Wonderful painting technique with the cardboard.
I'll have to stop by! I already got your design book from Joe Weatherly, so I might bring it along if you would care to sign it. That'd be extra awesome. Take care. See you there.

It was great to speak to you again at the convention.
I have been grabbing cardboard from work to doodle on, and it's a fun 'starter' for sketching on.

Love seeing the traditional mediums used!
