Pandamonium Returns!

LeadRocket has been a pretty awesome experiment. Originally it was conceived to give myself the daily exercise of doing a sketch a day. I spent so much time behind a computer doing graphic design work, I forgot the feeling of a pencil to sketch pad. But what surprised me was how quickly I stopped drawing what I thought people wanted to see, and started drawing what I loved. I went back to my roots, which was cartoons. I grew up watching Looney Tunes, Popeye, Felix the Cat, Casper, Mighty Mouse, the old Fleischer Superman...you name it, it influenced me.

I've created more solid characters and the stories behind them in two years, than I have in my whole life. Pretty awesome. So here again is Pandamonium. Nemesis of Sushi and Gazpacho. A real bastard too. Officially, the loud-mouth bastard of a panda from New England.

I started my website as a place to showcase my designs and added the blog because I thought it would be a good feature. But my blog is starting to do what your blog has done for you; I'm starting to draw random stuff because I like it. Reminds me why I got into this crazy design business to begin with!

That is so awesome. Really, it means a lot that I can do something good for someone else.
