The Lion and the Unicorn

For those of you interested, The Short Film "The Lion and the Unicorn" Directed by the delightfully demented Benjamin "Moose" LaRiviere now has a poster.

created by the tremendously talented Morgann Daniels.

Why do I know so much about this film? I worked on it too, yay!

Ben's script was a joy to read . And quite frankly, the prospect of drawing two fantastic monsters beating the living crud out of each other and everything was too much fun to pass up.

Of course, the stills from the film look a bit different from the boards I drew. You'll notice the actor playing Mr. Timberland has hair, as well as the office being equipped with a freaking awesome typewriter and candlestick phone (things like that are stuff I sooo wish I could claim were my idea, but they aren't). If you get a chance to see this, do!

CCI bound!

Just got my 4 day pass for Comic Con International in San Diego, held the same week as my birthday.


Also, I saw this cool thing just now.

And I recently saw this less cool thing almost just now.

And I have absolutely no explanation for this

Just sketch'n to go

Either I'm a hard-working artist or a rampant narcissist. Here are some more samples from a recently completed sketchbook, started November, 2010, completed last week.

These first couple of pages are from Nov/Dec last year, when I was dutifully copying George Bridgeman's famous anatomy book and taking a figure Drawing class through local Adult Ed. (Currently, I'm taking a watercolor class, and I'll post pictures as soon as I paint some I don't want to shred as soon as I finish them).

The sketchbook in question is 11" by 14", pretty huge, but still fits in my backpack and technically haul-able. The downside is my best drawings from this book are too damn big to fit on the wimpy document scanner I have to use, and thus not included in this blog post. I could state something about my artistic vision being literally too big for the technology I have to use, but that would lend credence to the previously established claims of self-indulgence as opposed to a genuine work ethic.
That I give vent to my loquacity through bombastic circumlocution is an assertion possessing much verisimilitude, though.

Did you recognize this as a Patas Monkey? Good for you.

This is not a monkey, Which I thought was common knowledge. But when I'm at the Zoo (weekly, as of this writing) every parent has to point at these poor guys and say to their stinkin kids "look at the monkey".
I hate parents, and I hate children. Zoos would be so much more fun without them.

I hate parents and kids so much I can't stop drawing them. Out of hate. This is a technique I'm attempting to crib from Glen Villipu: bleeding ballpoint pen lines into a wash with a brush-pen loaded with water.
