Phrase of last week and menu Buddha thing. Tiredness is not good sometimes.
Attention fellow bloggers, phrase this week: "the sleep of reason produces malodorous monsters" (don't blame me for this phrase, Jeff made me write it.) Alternatively: "25 cerebellums are hovering right above you."
jaysis Mr.Dancing Bear,seems like those coupla design tips from de White Horse are doin de biz wha',nice stuff :) heres a little cover thingy i popped offf fer a geezer in Berlin, just yer average space picnic..... anyhoo hope yer all well :)
This is a logo design I did for a flower delivery company in Edmonton called Bou-K run by Jim Pettinger. His brief was, "give me a something like a bear on a moped delivering frowers." So I did. And this is it.
My little lady's little cousin hasn't been doing to good lately. He was taken into hospital. Anyway, I decided that maybe he might like a little drawing. The last time I saw him, I was drawing animals that kids suggested in Batman outfits. So, I decided to do this Bat-Anteater for him. I was so pleased to hear that when he saw it, he just sat there beaming from ear to ear. So, maybe I'll get to heaven after all....who am I kidding...I'm currently working on Super Hippo for him.
This is a sketch I did for a piece of character development work for an OEM book. I based it on Laura's neice, Annie. I thought it was cute so I coloured it up a little. It's kinda cute I thought. So here's the pencil and the colour.
Here is a sketchpage that I did this weekend. I used this quite handsome looking character for a card I did for Sarah and Shawn. They are leaving for Korea today. Sad as I already miss them and they haven't even left yet (get outta here you're ruining the pathos). Now I have to start saving my pennies for that slow junket to the land of soju and kimchi! On that note, we were thinking last night that we should start a word of the week theme here. What do ya think Jon-jon and Baz? So, I thought for this week in appropriate style of sending S & S off properly the phrase could be: Cats on a plane. Cuz they are taking their cat with them, Mr. Lunch!
Um. Math class is exciting. The second picture is a collaboration of my math teacher and me. Hahah, oh she's so great. Gotta love her style. Oh, and my mum made me post these. (Sorry they're kind of lame.)
this is a thumbnail i did for my sister's and brother's cd insert. ( the cd's called sweet waltz, bitter waltz, by teach yourself piano- check it out!) sometimes i like my scribbles better than the finished paintings. almost always, actually... anyhow, i haven't drawn for a few days, (don't tell jeff) so am resorting to old stuff. man...
I don't know what it is about big noses but I like drawing them. I drew this one while listening to the Pogues the other night. I don't think I like the lil' Amish beard. He deserves a more bristly one with big side burns. Animating wise though, I think it would be cool with the squash and stretchy on the lower part against the movement of that beak of a nose.
Since I am just spending the day hacking up phlegm whilst my head attempts to dislodge itself from my body, I decided to doodle. I did this with a col-erase red to compliment the ever so plump and pouting thomas j.! This character sort of reminds me of 'Eye'-gor from Young Frankenstein caught in a fifties animation. I will say that drawing hasn't been such a big part of my everyday life in such a long time and it feels goooooood! Hot n' Sour soup for the soul!
I wonder how much one must drink in an evening to wake up like this in the morning. When one utters the words, "Jayziz, I got some bleedin' head on me", one is in for a big suprise when one looks in the mirror. The warbly voice like Zoiberg could be easily enduced by a furry tongue, but man...that's quite the head.
Just another Encephelopod to add to the whole squid thing! :-)
Since this blog has Squid in the name and the MAN has posted a few tenticled beasties, I decided to doodle this HORROR to scare the bejaysis out of everyone. It is a horror to give H.P Lovecraft's Cthulu a run for its money! Cower in its deadly gaze!
Well, there I was just doodling and what happened. I manged to Draw Mr. Squidling himself...it's been a while but this really reminded me of him so, here ya go! That's for posting the rabbit ya wee shite!
Well, here's my first post on here. I drew a baby elephant and promtply realised that I had infact just drawn somthing remarkably like Tantor from Tarzan. Anyhoo, it's cute and fun so I thought I'd post it anyway!
I woke up rather early this morning and blurrily looked out the frost bitten window and this is what I saw...kinda. So, I sketched it in the dim light of the bedroom, ruining my eyes just a little bit more and tried to take a photo of it. I have been wanting to do a show documenting all the things I see. I am sure between me and squidulin we could fill up alot of wall space. Anyway, if people want to send me money all the proceeds will go towards new windows or a mail order Russian bride. Don't worry they are used to the cold.
This is my bird that came in from the cold that I have been feeding. I know...it looks like a bird head skewered on some tongs but ya know he is sad and a warning to all...bwahahahaaahaaaaa cough cough ha.
