I was flipping through an old, hardly used sketch book yesterday and stumbled upon some drawings from 2009ish that I really liked (well, as much as I ever like any of my own art, I tend to be very self-critical). This featured image here is a Crab Raccoon…if you couldn’t tell. My friend Jorj had mentioned that one of his daughters always mispronounced “crab rangoons” as “crab raccoons”, so we decided we had to draw it. This was my vision of such a critter. It was relatively quick, but lots of fun at the time as this was towards the end of my “artistic dreams on the back burner” period of life (before the kids were all in school and I could finally sneak in some studio time without too much guilt). I was playing around with some Micron pens, both the brush and ultra fine tips, as well as some Prismacolor greyscale markers.
