Second Annual Star Wars Pinups

Even though I admittedly care very little about Star Wars, I still feel compelled to join in the nerdcore holiday #MayTheFourth.  People seemed to like my goofy Star Wars pinups last year (someone said my sexy Chewbacca seriously disturbed them), so I'll just keep doing these.  Here we have Booby Fett, Grl2-D2, and just Leia with a light saber because she deserves to at least hold one once in a while.   Thats something I don't get- she and Luke are twins, right?  How come she doesn't have any Force goin' on?  Are metachlorians only carried on the Y-chromosome or something?  Anyhow, I'll be leaving these around town next Saturday, weather-permitting, and posting clues on twitter (@jothezette) to anyone who wants to hunt them.

Daily Crapbook: May The Fourth Sketches

No matter how crazy busy I may be, I have to at least attempt to make something for this weekend's #MayTheFourth #FAFATL drop.  Just noodling up some ideas...

Daily Crapbook: Girlie Doodle

I've been on two jobs lately so I've neglected Monkey Rag and Daily Crapbook, but when I'm overdue for a girlie drawing that's just unacceptable.

Sc 15 Monkey Rag Background

Underwater scene!  After the backgrounds are done, I need to go back and animate some fish....

Daily Crapbook: America's Nerdiest City

I just heard on the soft news wire that Atlanta is America's nerdiest city.  It's on the internet, so its a fact now.  I always knew Atlanta was nerdcore.

Daily Crapbook: Paper, Pencil, Sigh

I've long since stopped being shocked by all the news about Disney's retreat from traditional animation.  First there was the selling of the animation desks, then all sorts of other whispers about "moving away from 2D" here and "no 2D features are in production" there... It was scary at first, but eventually it just seemed like another trend the industry was riding.  Traditional animation would be less prevalent, but it would never go away entirely.  But the story that dropped this evening about the animation veterans being laid off just really shook me.  I get that the industry is in flux, I get that innovation needs to happen... but when the best of the best are out of work, what hope is there for little animators like me?  I feel like a kid that's been trying to get onto the local little league team, while in the meantime the major league is being shut down.  Its just a sad note to end the day on.

Daily Crapbook: Kitty Retribution

Ezra likes to punish me for not paying enough attention to her by toppling my papers.  I might just leave them on the floor this time.

Daily Crapbook: Fire Wolf

Man, I have so much crap to do tonight.  Why did I draw a Fire Wolf instead?
