Ahhh it’s been so long since I’ve done gesture drawing, it is FUN also cat. (5 min poses and Lucy is sitting on 2 min poses)
So far 2014 has just been me catching up on work. Soon I will take a short break from work to focus on a class, which I am very excited about! Maybe I will even post art again!
Also, "That’s Alright" WOWEEEEE
I drew a lot! And got excited about learning a lot, and had good timing a lot. That’s about it.
Or: WB had a storyboard revisionist position to fill right when I was taking Jay Oliva's class at CDA a few years back, and Jay offered me the job at the end of the term (he said he would have hired me earlier if I hadn’t stopped turning in my homework for a few weeks, GOOD JOB ME). I did storyboard revisions for a year, learned a lot, transitioned to doing storyboards, learned even more, worked hard, made buddies, got a little bit better at drawing superhero butts, got a job offer from a buddy who’d moved to Titmouse, and here I am today!
Doodled a quick self-portrait while cleaning storyboards. Hello 2014! Hair’s different but my brain’s the same.
…like I said, butts…
In stores today! Adventure Time #23 featuring a short story written and drawn by Jen Bennett, colored by Emily Warren, and lettered by me! Woohoo! <3
(These rad covers are by Mike Holmes and Seo Kim, respectively.)
I wrote/did drawings for a really silly short comic in the back of AT #23! There are… butts… because of course there are. I am sorry. It helps if you are familiar with Marceline’s daddy issues, because the comic is about butts and Marshall Lee’s mommy issues.Thank you to Emily Warren and Hannah for their beautiful work!!
More importantly: if you aren’t already reading the Adventure Time comics YOU SHOULD BE, because Ryan North, Shelli Paroline and Braden Lamb are KILLING IT!
Also look at those covers!! Jeez!
My buddy Emily got leggings with cats floating in space on them and then she did this at lunch, probably scaring the staff.
Throwback Thursday: this dumb Alpaca Facts zine I did three years ago after realizing that alpacas are real animals that exist.
Orange is the New Black is so good, I am only two episodes in and it’s like, women!! INCREDIBLE WOMEN!! (IN PRISON!!)
Also Dascha Polanco is really pretty, wow.
- If I’m in the area, I’ll be attending the Justice League: Flashpoint Paradox premiere on Friday at 7:30pm. Directed by Jay Oliva and executed by a lot of awesome colleagues and friends of mine, it boasts a truly ridiculous voice cast (Nathan Fillion! Ron Perlman! Michael B. Jordan!!!) and animation by Studio 4C. It is a crazy spectacle of a superhero movie.
- I’ll be doing Adventure Time sketch covers at the Kaboom! booth all day on Saturday and Sunday…
- …though I may try to take an early break on Saturday to ninja over to the Young Justice Unofficial Reunion behind the convention center at 11AM.
- I probably won’t be able to get away from the booth on Sunday, but the Beware the Batman Screening and Q&A is at 1pm. Producer and cool dude Glen Murakami will be there, along with a lot of other awesome people behind the show.
Besides those things I will probably be buying books, eating, and dealing poorly with the massive amounts of people everywhere forever oh god. Please feel free to say hi! (Maybe give me a gentle pat on the head if I’m huddled in a corner breathing into a paper bag. Or a whisky. Whisky > physical contact. Actually don’t pat me on the head, I’ll react badly. Whisky or a friendly smile, please.)
Have a great weekend!
Ok yes! Is that you, Marsh?
…Jonny Lee Miller is a very large cat.
Doodle break at work while listening Q.U.E.E.N. I didn’t look up reference so it’s kind of Janelle Monae? Ish? Maybe?
