More peoples and a SURPRISE!!!!

Here are more figure drawing examples. The more I look at these the more I'm wanting to get out on the train with my moleskine and draw new ones!!! Soon...soon.

Also, I wanna selfishly show off my little souvenir from The John and Bill Animation Show over the weekend. I approached the guys after watching Bill Plympton's Hair High (which I loved and have been gabbing about ever since). My hope was that they would both sign a blank piece of animation paper for me. Sure enough, they obliged. John K even drew a picture!!! How eternally thankful am I.

I loved this lady's hairstyle.

I was told it's "corny" to have the classroom drawn in the back. I see their point.

Bill Plympton and John K!!! AAAHHHH!!!!

Animal Overflow!!!1!!!

So I've noticed an influx of animal drawings. I guess that's my fallback. I dug up some other stuff to balance it out. Some of the few figure drawing pieces I saved are ones that I still like, but I'm on the cusp of adding many more to the collection. Needless to say, drawing people on the train (in secret) is incredibly helpful. Just be careful about who notices you when you do it. I'll be posting some of those quick sketches eventually.

But for now, here's a samples of some peoples...

Alright, these are weird peoples. And violent. At least they're wearing pants.

Here we go. Finally.

And the fish. I lied about the animals.

Until Next Time.

Found some more

So I found another cache of drawings on the ol' hard drive. Funny how you can look back at drawings you know beyond the shadow of a doubt made you proud at some point. Now they're too embarrassing to look at. But they are good bench markers. Here some that made the cut.

I was told this looked like a canine version of Bart Simpson. What can I say, I like to make my fan art creative.

This is a dinosaur farmer. What he harvests I'm not at liberty to say.

So I finally realize

I rented The Hunchback of Notre Dame because I hadn't seen it since grade school. While a lot more of it made sense, I still reacted more or less with a lukewarm reception. Of course, I rented it for the animation quality, which was second to none. Some really amazing subtleties going on. But coming away from the whole thing I saw only one character really stood out to me:

Clopin: The evil clown-man.

I remember liking him the most as a kid, too. Some things never change.

And here's another sketch entry. It's a hammerhead. Originally he had a word bubble in which he screamed, "Don't tap on the DAMN glass!!!!" Good taste prevailed, I suppose.

Until Next Time.

Drew this watching Dr. House I think.

I told you I'd be quicker

Been combing through the archives for a definitive Spelling Bee DVD. It's gotta be weighted down with more special features than all 3 Lord of the Rings movies COMBINED!!!! Maybe I'm being overzealous.

What I found were my spin on what the characters should look like. I've heard them described as "UPA", which I kind of understand. Yet, I always thought UPA was a lot less "busy" than the stuff I do. Here we go...

(Ed Grimley?)

Until Next Time.

Oh, how long it's been...

Well, The Spelling Bee short is finished and I'm a graduate. Scary. But at least it gives me time to update this place more often. I'll start with some quick sketches I did last week at the Lincoln Park Zoo (free zoo: An art student's finest resource).

I got a nifty little moleskin sketchbook and I luff it, so I'm trying to use it as much as possible.

(some flamingos)

(some monkeys...and a llama)

(last but not least, a cow and a tiger)

Enjoy! More to follow.
