While strolling through the city yesterday, I saw this business logo on the side of a tow truck. Look familiar?

Originality is for losers.

Sliver of Doodles

Here's some quick meanderings I did on the opposite side of a page where I had a finished inked drawing (to be posted later).

MORE Inking Practice

Here's a little something I inked up today while 'TAing' for Doug Crane's 1st Year Animation class. I think I'm getting a little more confident with ink. I think I'll give brushes a try soon.

Inking Practice

I've been practicing a little with the Pentel Brush pen, which I haven't dabbled with since before summer break started. Sadly, since my little visit to the emergency room a few months back, my hands have been constantly shaking, so it's really hard to keep my hands steady enough to cleanly ink my drawings. I've improved a little since inking this page, so the practice has definitely helped.

Back in Shape

Hey guys, my new scanner/printer works like a dream, & I just scanned a truckload of drawings. Thanks to the automatic feed function, I'm saving plenty of time & energy. I'm now more efficient, just in time for the new semester! I'll be posting some of my recent stuff very soon. Thanks again to Dan Caylor for recommending the scanner (click his link on the right, he rocks!).

It's been about 2 weeks since classes started up again & it's been absolutely wonderful so far! My classes are fun (no groaners this year), my professors are great, I'm seeing all my old animator/cartooning buddies again & a lot of really cool stuff has been coming down the pipeline. I got a real nice job here as a teacher's assistant, I got several recommendations from teachers & I just started Stephen Silver's Character Design class! Even in such a short amount of time I think my attitude towards life has made a complete 180 degree turn & my drawing ability has somewhat spiked up a bit. Life is good.

Finally, here's something I drew last month while passing through the city. Not only was I in the midst of some creative, emotional & mental instability, but it was probably the hottest day of the summer.

Well not anymore!
