Daily Crapbook: Angel Lion

A sketch I've had in my crapbook for a while. I'm not sure what it is, but he's grown on me.

Daily Crapbook: Freckles The Farm Girl

I'm trying to figure out a better technique for coloring. I'm not sure if this one will work, but at least I slodged through it. Also, I added a chicken. Freckles seemed like she needed a chicken.

Daily Crapbook: Racoon Flower

I haven't had anything for my Daily Crapbook for a while now, so I decided to noodle a sketch from Monkey Rag.

The Real Secret of Kells

Today I had the privilege of seeing "The Secret of Kells" in the theater- what a lovely experience. Its a quiet little film, unpretentious and honest. The story was slow, but never boring. The characters were endearing without being saccharine. The design was breathtaking- there's almost too much to look at in every frame. I think the character animation could have used more time and money, but as thats always the case, its hardly a legitimate complaint. There was so much care and craftsmanship put into this film that I'm not at all bothered by a few characters that are timed on threes and fours. My friend summed up the experience by saying "this is exactly why 2D animation will never die. There are just some things that can only be done traditionally." I highly encourage everyone to go out and see it if its playing near you. But I just gotta say that the main character, Brendan, looks exactly like a kid Kim Possible and Ron Stoppable would have. Thats not really a complaint, but it was on my mind as I was watching the movie.

I've breached the 40 second mark for completed pencils, so I thought I'd celebrate by updating the animatic.

My dear friend Zoran Gvojic of LowCarbComedy fame has branched out into the comic world with his collaborative work Mystery Afoot! I contributed some artwork for the first issue (see above). If you're in the Chicago area for the C2E2 convention, be sure to check them out at the Chicago Comic Vault booth!

Daily Crapbook: RAAAGH!

Sometimes it fun to draw ugly. As the dog from that cartoon once said "I better stop this- I might get to like it."
