Ah, Little Dixie! This city was founded by Mormon pioneers, in the 1850s, as a cotton mission -- hence the nickname, Dixie.
We're sitting up on the red cliffs in Pioneer Park, overlooking St. George proper and the Mormon Temple. There are caverns that were used as homes by the settlers all over these rocks.
It was 107 degrees Fahrenheit, but not when we took this picture. We waited till the sun went down when we snapped this one, however it was probably still over 100 degrees!
When we lived in St. George I would take my daughter out to this park for a little climbing and picnic. Now, almost five years later, I brought her back up here for a little trip down memory lane. She was almost six when we left, but she still remembered things remarkably well.
The very next day we visited the Calico Ghost Town.

Hello everyone. I'm on vacation this week, but Drew Adams has posted a drawing I had done in his sketchbook over ten years ago. I thought I would go ahead and give him a link here. I also made my file a little smaller, so if you want a higher res file, you'll HAVE to go to his site.

Here are some character designs I did for Brother Bear.
The original assignment was to draw some prehistoric cavemen, but as the project developed the cavemen turned into Pre-Columbian Eskimo.
So, here are a father and son, preparing for some dramatic hunting occasion…but really it was an excuse to draw the wardrobe and show the directors what I had in mind in terms of clothing, jewelry and weapons.

Years ago, when I was working on Dinosaurs for Disney, I was asked to do some dinosaur designs. They had all the technical information and drawings, but what they needed was someone to draw the creatures with a sense of life and animation, without going into the realm of cartoon.
I drew out several roughs in order to work out my designs, mostly using ballpoint pen on newsprint.
