Daily Crapbook: Deep Thought

I was distracted from my work the other day by a very deep thought.

Tiki FAFATL Show

The piece I'm working on for the #FAFATL tiki show.  Very slapdash, but I'm learning.

FAFATL Tiki Show

I didn't submit anything to the last show for Free Art Friday Atlanta, and I couldn't bear to pass it up again.  Especially it being tiki themed this time!  So now I find myself scrambling to slap something together at the last minute like I knew I would.  Ain't it always the way...

Lesson from ParaNorman

Saw ParaNorman last night, and I loved it!  Definitely a big win for Laika, and I hope it makes barrels of money.  It also taught me an important lesson- you'll just have to see the film to appreciate it's impact.

LowCarbComedy End Tag, Flashed Up

I took the pencils into Flash to finish it.  I wish I knew a way to get around that antiseptic feeling Flash always gives my animation.

Daily Crapbook: Old Squirrel Roughs

Going through more of the old stack of loose papers and found these roughs.  It’s the squirrel from an old spot I animated called Smokefree Bluebird.  Honestly, I get as sentimental about these old drawings as I do about old snapshots...

LowCarbComedy.com End Tag Animation

More process posts, huzzah!  Here is the very, very rough initial pass of the animation of the LowCarbComedy.com end tag.

And here is the more fleshed out pencil animation.  Hrm, "fleshed out" is an icky expression, isn't it?

LowCarmComedy.com End Tag

I'm animating a new end tag for my friend Zoran's awesome LowCarbComedy.com videos, and I got permission to post the progress.  First, I had to design a good logo- not quite caricature, but not totally generic either. After a few days of sketching, I gave up on designing a good one and telepathically manipulated Zoran's opinion so he'd like this one.  A very handy skill.

Daily Crapbook: Mitzi Roughs

Going through my humongous stack of unsorted papers and found these old roughs of Mitzi.  Kinda liked it too much to throw away.

Special #FAFATL Drop at the Luau Show

As an extra incentive for folks to come to the Blair Crimmins and the Hula Hookers + Davina and the Harlots show tomorrow, I made a special #FAFATL drop to hide at the Goat Farm.  So come on down and find this little Annette while enjoying the Sounds of Summer!

Davina and the Harlots This Friday!


If you're in Atlanta on Friday and hankerin' for some luau action, head on over to the Goat Farm!  Revel in the amazing sounds of Blair Crimmins and the Hula Hookers, featuring Davina and the Harlots!  (We only perform a couple times a year, and even more rarely with an awesome band like the Hookers, so I'm pretty excited about Friday. :)

Davina and the Harlots, Sketches for Friday's Show

I'd like to do something to promote Davina and the Harlots' appearance with Blair Crimmins and the "Hula" Hookers in the "Sounds of Summer" show this Friday at the Goat Farm, so I started sketching.  Hopefully sometime today, I'll come up with something good to use to let people know about Davina and the Harlots' appearance with Blair Crimmins and the "Hula" Hookers in the "Sounds of Summer" show this Friday at the Goat Farm...

Incidentally, Davina and the Harlots will perform with Blair Crimmins and the "Hula" Hookers in the "Sounds of Summer" show this Friday at the Goat Farm, 9:30pm, $15 at the door.  Bring your Hawaiian shirt.

Free Art Friday: BUNNIIEEE!

I've got one bunny and carrot pair going out today.  I planned for two pairs, but as its likely to rain today I don't want to risk to whole shebang.  Good luck, art hunters!

Free Art Friday Sketches

Wanted to try something a little different for this week's Free Art Friday.  Instead of a cute girlie, I'm opting for cute bunnies and carrots.  We'll see if it flies.
