This is an ode to an old stuffed animal. When I was a kid I went to a grocery store with my dad (who's name is also Fabian) and we saw a basket full of different stuffed animals, which all had different names on their tag. One in particular was named Fabian Fox. Seeing a stuffed animal with our name on it my dad and I couldn't pass up the offer. The special thing about the animals was that you could squeeze them and they would have a special saying. Fabian Fox's special saying was (in a sexy latin voice) "Would you like a Café au lait?" How Crazy is that?!?
Now, my guess at why I love drawing at coffee shops so much is probably because of this funny stuffed fox who kept offering me Café au lait in such a seductive manner.
Now in my ripe age of 25, I can say that I am drinker of coffee and cant get by a day without it. Heres to you Fabian Fox.
If you want to see the stuffed version of Fabian Fox go here... and scroll down a bit to the foxes...(im not sure foxes is a word.)

Heres a piece that I had on the back burner for some time. I had some coffee late last night and couldnt go to sleep so I stayed up and finished this. Let me know what you think of it. Sorry for the lack of BG. I didnt plan for any and I didnt want there to be some sort of half ass background where you could tell i had not planned for it. So here it is just plain o plain.

Recently I have been doing lots of drawing for work. Its great stuff that I would love to show one day. Thankfully great projects and great directors are a breeze to work through. When I have the opportunity to run wild with my designs its so fun! There is no better joy. But Once the characters are tied down and one starts to draw them more and more... it can get somewhat hypnotizing. Am i right?
To that I say... get some fresh air!! Go for a walk and draw for yourself at a nearby coffee shop!
I did a page of drawing after work today and it felt so refreshing to just pick random shapes out of the air and fill 'em in.
Heres what freshened me up!
