Stop and Smell the Flowers

It's been six years this month since I've been out of the animation field. Though I don't miss inbetweening, doing shadow animation, or the long hours, there are a few things I do sorely miss...

1. Drawing with a pencil on paper (Col-Erase light blue and Tombow Mono 'F' on animation bond).
2. Being completely immersed within an artistic task (the ever-elusive "zone").
3. And most of all ... the people (well, some of them anyway).

Animators are a passionate, creative bunch of folks, often times harboring some sort of obsessive personality. They tend to be driven by an internal desire to do the best possible work they can, though never seeming to be truly satisfied with the outcome. Always comparing themselves to personal heroes, idols, and other impossible means of measure. The fascinating thing about them, is that they are usually well versed in many artforms as well; painting, design, film, music, theater, comic books, puppetry, sculpture, etc. If you ever want to know who the greatest artist of all time was / is, just ask a roomful of animators and you'll get a roomful of answers. Something else I've noticed, is that the animation field itself serves as a port for many of these folks. A stop off, detour, or training ground until the next creative calling beacons. ....sigh.

Well, this past weekend I was fortunate to re-connect with some of these friends of mine. I miss their energy, enthusiasm, and drive. Thanks for allowing me to stop and smell the flowers!

Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Reduxe Edition: Part 2

Here's the last batch of drawings I did for "The Official Handbook to the Marvel Universe Reduxe Edition".

These characters are from Jack Kirby's "Eternals" series, which was full of mind blowing concepts and artwork. It blew me away as a kid, and still does today. But then again, just about everything Kirby has that effect on me.

If you'd like to see a comparison of the original comic page from the 1980's series next to my interpretation, just click on the name of the character for a quick link.

Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Reduxe Edition: Part 1

I recently submitted a few drawings to a cool site called "The Official Handbook to the Marvel Universe Reduxe Edition".

The goal of the site is to ... "invite a group of disparate cartoonists and artist to come together in order to recreate every single character entry in the original Official Handbook to the Marvel Universe (Deluxe Edition) in their own inimitable style."

The Official Handbook to the Marvel Universe (Deluxe Edition) was a 20 issue series published from 1985-1988. The series featured a pin-up styled drawing, as well as detailed information, for each hero and villain of the Marvel Universe, from A to Z. This was before the internet, so getting vital information on your favorite characters was often a difficult, or impossible, task at the time.

I was a big fan of the Marvel series, so being a part of this Reduxe Edition was a treat. Of course, I only picked  Jack Kirby characters to draw, so that made it even cooler.

Girl Product Designs




I had a lot of fun with these designs, which could be printed on various items. These were presented to a chain of retail stores which specializes in the girl's market. The designs ultimately didn't move forward, but were a treat to work on!
