In 10 Years.

.. Everyone will probably know what this secret project is. But for now, YOU DON'T HA HA.
Doesn't mean you can't enjoy some sketches, though. I've never aged characters up before, so it was a fun challenge. I need to explore this kind of thing with Hooky, methinks.

A Long One.

Long blog post, that is. Glad you came to this link now, aren'tcha?

Up first are some Hooky doodles. Boy, I had a day this week where I was channeling her enthusiasm, or something, I just couldn't stop.

Enthusiastic enough to use my markers, even!

At the bottom there, Hooky is exploring my
latest musical craze.

Fun stuff.

In other news, the results for the Leaving Cert are out in naught but two weeks. Shitting myself? Why yes, yes I am. I'm nice and screwed if I don't get the one and only course I want, I honestly don't know what to do! Oh well, time will reveal all.

Finally for now, my good friend Justin Jones, viking artist extrodinaire has set up his own website. Humourous and educational, I highly recommend a visit. Peace out y'all.

I am a Human Rocket.

Just whipped up a new avatar for myself, thought it'd be fair to show the whole thing.
Hooky's on LSD, or something. I'm good to my fictional children. I was told the eyes were reminiscent of Ren and Stimpy, although I'm sure Katie Rice had much more to do with it.
Anyway, it's fun to draw Hooky again! I need to focus on her more. Or just focus, in general.

Charming the Ladies.

First up, a beautiful young lady by the name of Anna Claydon. Anna Banana enquired about caricaturing her, and me being God's gift to women, I was simply delighted to oblige. And not just because I love my limey chum to bits, but because on top of being cute as the dickens, Anna has an interesting face to profile.

These are a few studies I did in getting accustomed to her features and cartooning them. I felt so pro doodling these up! As you can see I adore her beautiful big eyes.

This is my final sketch. Still lots of work... I tried my hardest to draw a Star Trek communicator to incorporate her, ahem, fetish with the original series. Alas. I am not nerd enough.

Finished piece!

Not as polished as I'd like, because GIMP has failed me yet again. My kingdom for Photoshop Elements!
Anyway, next foxy lady up on my hitlist is one Skylar Sunday. Here be some pencils. Accurate? I dunnoooooo. My art makes people wonky.

The Doctor is In.

Dr. Klopftenstein, that is! A gift for my most curious of friends, Jo. Almost more importantly, this is one of the first drawings I've looked at in a while and said "Hey! This doesn't totally suck!". I'm hoping it's the start of a trend.

The Colours Red and Blue and pink. So, I was initially just messing in OC, and this is was came out. Weird, huh? I mean, I love this painterly style, but so few others do. Not that I rely on the enthusiasm of others for motivation, but I'm just so down on my art lately. Like, daaang bro.
Trying to loosen up with sketches and such...we'll see how it goes. And if it doesn't work, I can always opt for a career change and work in an off-license. COOL.

Slient Era

Hey, did you guys know how awesome the silent era of animation was? I meant to look it up forever, but only got around to it today, starting with Windsor McCay. What a delightful little film! That, along with the art of Oliver Contreras inspired the above piece.

Recent Arts

Bloggers! I keep meaning to update this barren wasteland of artistic run-off with major arts I'm cramming into that one other website.

This was an idea I'd been playing with for about a week, then drew up in like, 15 minutes, which then proceeded to become insanely popular. Kids these days, huh? I was venting, as per usual with this. Some people just never get the comeuppance they deserve.

Ooooh, I'm so flexible and EXPERIMEEEENTAAAL. I do like being able to tackle practically any style I can think of...but boy, even I think I can be pretentious. I think over summer, with my (hopefully!) impending entry to animation college come October, I'll try stick to being as cartoony as I can. Within an artistic range, of course, but goddamn I need to loosen up! I EXPECT YOU PEOPLE TO HOLD ME TO THAT.

And this was for my BFF and future wife Julian, because I wuv him thaaaaat much. Much cartoonier, and hence, more likeable. COME ONE HANDS, TAKE A HINT.

Ground Control?

Work for a short I thought of, in part inspired by a totally fucking amazing CalArts student film. DAMN I WANT TO MAKE FILMS LIKE THIS HHHNNNGH. Even listening to the soundtrack makes me feel inspired.
Anyway, my story is about a curious spaceman, a tired robot and a ticklish planet. I'll sketch some more stuff out and get it up soon!

I keep forgetting to post stuff here, daggnabbit! I mean, I've been busy with school and exams and art relating to these as opposed to anything cool... I should still be posting occasionally, though.
A quick GIMP painting of Deadmau5. I am a techno geek at heart.

My portfolio is almost finished! Thank you jeebus.
Here'ssome life-drawing, because apparently people want to see it.

Charting Out a Life in Drawings.

I've been considering it lately: In light of the fact most of my life is a foggy blur when it comes to reminiscing, my drawings and doodles in particular might be good road maps for my emotions at any given time. Not that that's their purpose, but it's a ulterior function they could possess, hm?

Like this one. This was a reflection on my strong and fucking OLD desire to visit Disneyland. Got grotesque only purely because, uh, that's how I draw. I suppose my subconscious anxieties about going to Los Angeles are present here too, though.

Was thinking about images of ripping, or morphing like clay through the frustrating inability to express myself otherwise.

And finally, letting a little boy's fragmented grasp reality affect me way too much.

An Undedicated Fan.

An undedicated fan does not finish fanart. Case in point? Me.

Not that I'm particularly a fan of Spliced, a new show dropped onto the laps of kids this week by Nicktoons UK.

Pretty good idea for a show. Cute funny characters, with some hilarious dialogue and nice key poses. The one problem? Canadian Flash animation. God damn you Nelvana! But aside from eye-raping tweens, it's bearable as it gets. Love the two main characters, as indicated by my overzealous doodling.

Moving onto better animated things, went to see Disney's "The Princess and The Frog". To keep to a quick critique, it deserves 7/10. This discounting the nostalgia factor that made it seem SO UBER FANTASTIC. Which it did, this film could have been made 20 years ago. Pretty formulaic, and damn boring main characters. I'm beginning to think the long-lasting appeal of Disney is through characters with so little personality that they can't possibly offend anyone at any period of time. The supporting characters are what held the film together for me. I particularly enjoyed the cartoony motion on Louis, whose animation was supervised by the genius Eric Goldberg. Why can't all of the characters be as cartoony and fun? It'd be frantic. But it'd be good fun to look at.

"Who wants to toot my horn, ladies?"

Charlotte, another unimportant character story wise was who I wished the story revolved around. Much more interesting to look at than Tiana, and with the best slutty Southern accent you've ever heard. Because that was one of the main reasons I loved this movie. I love dirty Southern accents. Jim Cummings killed me, gentlemen. KILLED ME.
And a very obvious reason to love this film is the best Disney villian in forever. Broad claim, but I loved Dr. Facilier. Voodoo is such an awesome thing. Wish Celts had some pasty white equivilant. Gotta look into that.

Fanart ahoy! I wonder how Disney would react to art like this?

And some arbitrary gross Mickey Mouse fanart to end with. That's that wrapped up then.

Devilish Foreigners.

Oh, the things me and Julian come up with.
