Mama & Baby Cartoon Snippet

I was trying to get a cartoon finished in time for Mother’s Day but ran out of time.  I have to move on to actual work now, so here’s a snippet until I can get back to it.

Derren Brown Sketch

I tried to sketch #DerrenBrown after seeing #Secret but I guess I got hypnotized into forgetting how to draw!  Ah well- I'm callin' it now.

Sketch Dump!

Sketch dump from the past few days? weeks?  I don't know. I just wish the Blogger app on my phone would stop crashing.

Best Current Live Action Batman

You know how everyone who loves Batman has a "my" Batman?  Well, "my" Batman will always be the BTAS Batman, and I never thought I'd see a live-action Batman that felt like "mine."  But we've been watching Gotham, and although it plays more like a penny dreadful than a Batman story, I have been super impressed with the kid who plays young Bruce Wayne.  I don't know if he's studied BTAS, if he's intuitive, or if he get's good direction, but this guy is spot on with his mannerisms and the silhouettes that he strikes.  Maybe in a few years I will get to have "my" Batman in live action after all!

School Marm Redraw!

"School Marm" 2007

"School Marm" 2017
I make mistakes, but sometimes I can't see them until I've have a little time to breathe.  In this case, it was ten years.  I want to continue to revisit old drawings that are terrible but have a little note of something I like, and see if I can redraw them to be more successful.  Its kinda a fun exercise!

Top Ten Cartoon Crushes



Well, its finally done, in all its lack of glory!  I meant for this to be a Valentine's Day video, but what was supposed to be a weekend project just turned into a months-swallowing video monster.  And as we all know, I can't leave a project undone no matter how ill-advised it is.  But it was educational, and the next time I attempt a video like this I know what I need to do differently.  So here you go internet, just what you've always wanted: another list video!  But at least now I am free to start on projects that actually matter.  Like taxes.  Ug.  Sometimes being an adult is the worst.
