Monkey Rag Sc. 14 Background

I (mostly) finished a background?  Without crying?  No tantrum?  Or ice cream binge?  Is it possible I'm growing up a bit?

Daily Crapbook: Too Much In Common

This happened yesterday.  I need to follow a more diverse selection of feeds from now on.

Daily Crapbook: Can Never Seem To Finish Enough

Just can't seem to finish enough in any given day.  I've been trying to finish both Monkey Rag and taxes by working on them both each day, since the deadline for both is April 15th.  Yesterday I didn't touch taxes, and today I won't get to them either, and I would feel better about that if I liked how Monkey Rag was coming along.  Oof! Who says women are good at multitasking?  I'm going to band practice to clear my head now.

Monkey Rag Sc 13 Background

This is the last of the red-hot mama-jamma pan background.  Once its properly framed and vignetted and moving and onscreen for only a few seconds, it might work out!  In any case, its time to let this stew.

Daily Crapbook: Supernatural

I've had Supernatural on the mind ever since I discovered that 99% of my friends love it too.  Crappy sketch, but I'm not here to make art...  What?

Daily Crapbook: Bad Little Girl

Today I should have spent the entire day either working on Monkey Rag or doing taxes, but instead my brain could only let me wrap my mind around watching Adventure Time and singin' on the ukulele.  I started to feel guilty for a minute, but then the warm, happy feeling of  general all-rightness-with-the-world made it fade away.  Sometimes its good to indulge your whims.

Monkey Rag: This Farkakt Background!

My original idea for this scene is too large in scope to realize, so I've had to recalibrate.  (That's possibly why its taking me such a farshtunken long time, half of my brain keeps saying "Noooo!  This was gonna be so cool!  Why isn't this cool??")  Slapped on a vignette to trick myself into liking it, so I can at least go have lunch while this simmers.

Monkey Rag Sc-12 C Sketch

Sketch of the part of the Sc_12 pan background I'd rather be working on.

Emily and John's Save the Date!  Check, and check.

Monkey Rag Backgrounds

Been pounding my head against the background problem for weeks now.  Finally got something down.  Don't like it, but it is something.  I will fix it once it's simmered a while.

Daily Crapbook: Interesting Tree

Trying to noodle up an interesting tree...I wonder what a "monkey puzzle" looks like.  To google!

Mitzi Maquette

Nate posted an update of his Mitzi maquette project, and I think she's looking really good.  Next stop, sand and paint!

Can't seem to get more than one thing done in an evening, but at least this is inked now!  Almost done guys...

Daily Crapbook: Cute Thing in a Cup

Forgot to hit "publish" on this post this a week or so ago.  Meh!

Daily Crapbook: Emily and John's Save The Date Sketch

Emily and John deserve a lot more thought put into their save-the-date, but as I'm running out of time, I hope this is in the ball park.

Daily Crapbook: John

Starting to sketch John- it is amazing how many times I need to get it wrong before I get it right.

Daily Crapbook: Stephen Fry Muppet

This is what happens when you mix a recent trip to the Center For Puppetry Arts with the discovery that all the episodes of "Quite Interesting" are on YouTube.  A Muppet version of Stephen Fry might be the only way to make him any more cuddly than he already is.

Starting to sketch Emily... about time I started!

Daily Crapbook: Old Hat

When to our local antique market this Saturday, and found an old Saks Fifth Avenue hat with a scarf that ties around the chin.  It needs some TLC, but it really does make me feel like an old-timey glamor girl.

D*sney Thumbnails

A while ago, I got a great gig doing little bits of animation of certain classic characters.  I don't think I'll ever get permission to show the stuff publicly, but I can at least show these bitty, little, entirely unrelated thumbnails.
