13 new sketch cards

Three new sketch cards from a big new batch. I'm adding grays to these, and I think it adds a nice, extra dimension:

Unfortunately, my scanner does not agree. It refuses to recognize these grays and just scans the blacks. Which sucks. So I'm photographing them, which both works and doesn't.

Two more:

Of course, the photos are all just a weee bit out of focus, but they capture the grays, so I'm happy.

Here's the entire new set:

I recently spent 10 days at the Center for Cartoon Studies, taking their annual summer workshop. Not only was it a great experience, it came at a perfect time for me. I was worn out, exhausted, drained and burned out. Here's what I felt like before the trip:

Much better, no?

Drawing Day

Okay, so it's been a while since I updated this blog. But expect more -- lots more.

In fact, let's start off with something brand new. Below is a quick, chaotic cartoon I drew yesterday for Drawing Day 2010. I wanted to push this out in just a couple of minutes, and I'm happy with the way it came out.

That's it for now. More soon!
