Jo's Crapbook Episode 05: Re Re Re ReDraw!


Compiled all my redraw livestreams into a crapbook video- it took too long, everything is a mess, but my new mantra is "they can learn from my mistakes!" so enjoy all the wrongness I supply for your edification!

Embracing the Housewife Look

Had to set my hair Friday night for a performance, so I spent most of Saturday going about my business in curlers.  I never looked more like a housewife, and I sort of loved it.

Final Redraws


Here are the final redraws in larger format- like La Parisienne so much I put her on merch!

Re Re REDRAW!

Can't leave well enough alone, but I hated how most of my redraw exercises resulted in drawings that felt weaker.  Time for a re re REDRAW!

That Star Wars cartoon that was supposed to take me a week to animate but...didn't... is just about ready to post!  Keep an eye out this week!

Figure Drawing

My local figure drawing group started back up again and I managed to muscle my way into the very limited group a couple weeks ago.  I'm desperate to go some more- I've needed exercise these muscles for a long time.

Cherry Bang from GLOW

Participated in the GirlsDrawinGirls celebration of the next season of GLOW with this drawing of Cherry Bang.  I loved that "come at me" scene in the first season where she schools Melrose.  Also, I really want a playsuit like that.

Boarding on Hanazuki

Just realized Hanazuki is online now!  I loved boarding on this adorably weird show. Check out my first assignment: Dazzlecize!

Intern #2

Should probably mention now that we're expecting Intern #2 this fall.  I've been too pooped these past few months to come up with a more clever announcement.

Star Wars First Scene


First tweened and colored scene done on the #StarWars cartoon- needs a little a-fixin’ but sometimes you just gotta git’ along.

Ladybug Fairy

Ladybug flapper fairy? Why the heck not.

Star Wars Designs Take 2

Honing the designs for some Star Warsian characters. Also, it just popped into my head a Han and Leia version of "It Happened One Night"- I don't know why but it amuses me.

Dear ScooterMan...

Dear Man on Scooter who zipped by on the crosswalk the other day,
Your face says "business time" but your kicky foot says "wheee!"  You made my day brighter- thank you.

Dog Faces

Why is “dog-faced” an insult when most dogs are adorable?

Swing It, Bea!

Kind of like how my big band singer turned out.  I'm calling her Bea.  Threw her on some merch too.

Singer Sketches

Trying to come up with a design for a snazzy swing songstress.

Cycle of Personal Hell

So I have some explanations for my absence these past many weeks.  I keep crashing into my wall of personal limitations, but I think I'm finally learning from it.

Dragging The Pencil...

Its been a long time, friends!  Trying to get back into drawing my own stuff feels like dragging myself out of bed on a sleepy morning.

Salud!

Sketch from a poster I just did...salud!

Hey Sister, Pour the Wine


I've said yes to so many things lately myself I just have to laugh at and waste time doing a sketch.  Life is so good right now it very well may end me.  Maybe a glass of wine isn't such a bad idea.

Come On, Get Happy!

I never got around to making a holiday card, so instead I have a Judy Garland-inspired wish for all this upcoming New Year.  (I know "Get Happy" isn't technically a New Year's song, but it feels holiday-appropriate somehow.)
