Bad Drawing Update!

I've been crazy busy trying to get this wedding invite done, and will soon update with some more bad drawings, but for now, here is a nice little preview of what's to come...

I had to take individual photos of the drawings to use as place holders in my video edit while my Girlfriend, Arlyn, colors them... So much work... so many bad drawings.

Cabin in the Woods contest results....

 Well I gave it a shot... I entered Bad Drawing #98 "Creepy Octo-kid" in the www.aintitcoolnews.com Cabin in the Woods contest (see here for blog entry)

At least I got a runner up!... (I'm the 4th drawing down...)


From "Quint" (the guy running the contest):

"Now here are some runner-ups that I like:

....Ellery Van Dooyeweert’s creepy tentacled-footed kid with a bowlcut. There was a lack of children-related horror coming out of those elevators, now that I think of it."

Can't argue the winners... The Indian guy looks pretty damn good.

 Yup, today I got my book order from Amazon.ca. I ordered the book "Drawing Words and Writing Pictures - by Jessica Abel and Matt Madden", on the recommendation of Bryan Lee O'Malley...

an even newer classic, this book blew me away. It’s essentially a college course in a book and contains many great ways to think about writing, drawing and everything in between. I was already an established pro when I got this book, but I still learned a lot from it. Jess and Matt are great teachers. They also have a sequel (like an advanced, second-year college course) coming out very soon and I’m excited!!!!

I have this weird dream that I'm gonna try and do a comic one day, and I figured this book may get me going in the right direction.

The point of this blog has always been to get me to draw more. Whenever I see really early work from a lot of my favorite comic artists, it's always amazing to me how much they've improved from the first drawn panel of their first comic, to the last panel of the most recent comic. I guess I feel maybe I should have my first panel of a first comic...

Anyway, whenever I get this wedding invite work done, I can start focusing on that venture... but there's a lot to do...

Page 1 of the script I'm drawing out... gah.

More drawings from said wedding project on the way... and as soon as I can post the finished, I shall.
