I ran across this small sketchbook while cleaning up yesterday, and discovered that it contained a few interesting things from a few years ago. Looking through it took me back to when I used to draw like this in sketchbooks all the time, filling them with all kids of disparate things. These days, I rarely do this.
In no particular order, here's some of the stuff from this sketchbook...
This first page kind of epitomizes for me what a sketchbook should be -- a place to work out ideas. Here I have a few notes for the 4Kids TMNT show, concepts for a "Peter Laird" signature to be used on some licensed products, and one wacky-looking mouser variant.
On this next page, I was trying out different layouts for the "TMNT Universe" book. I think I went with a variant of the one in the lower left-hand corner for the finished art.
And this page is kind of fun -- my ideas for the piece I did for Stan Sakai's awesome "Art of Usagi" book. -- PL
