Rise of the LAIKANS

Working at LAIKA Studios in Beautiful Portland has allowed me to meet some wonderful artists. None of whom I had met before, but some who’s work I was already familiar with. VERA BROSGOL is incapable of doing an un-appealing drawing. Beautiful storyboard drawings simply SQUIRT from her fingertips (personally, I have to GRUNT mine out). Not only a bad-ass storyboarder, [..read more..]

Gordon Clark online

Gordon Clark is a long-time friend and co-worker; we were colleagues at both Colossal Pictures and at Wild Brain. Like me, Gordon is a bad-movie aficionado. He is no less than the founder of GOMER NIGHT (where like-minded nerds rent crappy movies and make fun of them whilst enjoying them). I am pleased to announce that Gordon finally has his [..read more..]

Pisstake Platoon

Earlier I mentioned Arthur Filloy‘s Airplane drawing blog, Drawn Patrol. He now has another blog called PISSTAKE PLATOON which likewise showcases old drawings done at work, though this time the focus is not on planes, but general silliness; Caricatures, in jokes and other drawings done to amuse each-other while we all worked on mind-numbingly terrible Saturday morning cartoons. If you [..read more..]

An Inspired Christmas

Rather than post my own Christmas card, here’s a link to a Christmas post by Rhode Montijo. Both he and his writer pal Jason Jaworski recently set up on Broadway in New York city to make hand-drawn crayon portraits and type-written short stories for the passer-by Christmas shoppers. In return, the recipients were encouraged to donate to a Salvation Army [..read more..]

Totoro Forest Project

Recently, I posted a drawing I’d done for an art auction without giving any details, so here they are: On September 6th, PIXAR STUDIOS will host an auction of artwork done by 184 artists to raise money for the TOTOTO FOREST PROJECT; a foundation to protect urban forests in Japan. I wont attending because I will be in Australia, but [..read more..]

Drawn Patrol

Years ago, I worked at a studio where a lot of extra-curricular funny drawings were done by the crew. We drew caricatures of eachother, or of people seen on the streets at lunch hour, and we traded goofy doodles about funny things that happened around the studio, in-jokes and other silly stuff, and I joined in all these shenanigans as [..read more..]

Senator Leia Organa

Frequent visitors to this blog will have noticed that I have Star Wars on the brain at the moment… Here’s a little doodle (3×4 inches) of Princess LEIA done while watching TV last night.. You’ve all no doubt heard of HAN SOLO, but what about his sister; TRUMPET SOLO? (That nugget of internet gold courtesy of CHRIS.) Some fans of [..read more..]

Some Oldies

This picture was drawn years ago for my friend JOY who used to have a retro clothing line called FROCK & ROLL. (These days she designs under the label of HOT COUTURE). The recent discovery of an old, water-damaged portfolio has prompted me to sort through my sketchbooks and stacks of scribbles and make a digital back-up of my older [..read more..]

Salmons' Site

For the past few years I’ve been posting about the elusive comics/animation artist Tony Salmons, both in this here blog and also on forums devoted to drawing (such as the DRAWING BOARD FORUM. A lot of people I know feel that Tony should be a lot more famous than he is, but part of the reason that more people don’t [..read more..]

Stacchi site update

Due to my special inside-track relationship with Tony Stacchi’s webmaster I have the hot tip of the week: There has been a BIG upload of new artwork onto Mr Stacchi’s website. The FOLIO section at www.STACCHI.com now contains about twice as many pics as before. Tony is one of the directors on the forthcoming CG cartoon called OPEN SEASON, which [..read more..]
