Charlie Tango November

I'm using a bright red font color for this one! If you came here by the way of my business card or book at CTN, welcome and have a look around!
The pictures below are of some attendees at this year's CTN Expo. I'm sure you recognize me in the middle. Maybe you know the other two!? In the first photo, I'm flanked by Andreas Deja and Nik Ranieri. You can access Andreas' blog with one of the links on the right (Deja View). I'll work on adding a link to Nik's online presence. Oh, the pictures? They're from a Disneyana convention at the Disneyland Hotel in the Fall of 1992, right before the release of Aladdin, featuring Andreas' "Jafar" animation, a character which Nik also worked on. To everyone attending, I hope you're having as good a time as me! I've attended every CTN so far, and it never disappoints! Thanks, Tina (Price)!

Oh, what's "Charlie Tango November"? Ask a military veteran, or just google it!

Turban Legends...

I'm really having fun with "Sketch Dailies" on twitter! Really keeps you on your toes as an artist. If you're a student, or a pro, maybe between jobs and you're stumped for ideas (like those creative blocks we all get), I encourage you to join in. Anyway, the theme here was "Arabian Knight". It just hit me that I seem to be in a "dark" night like period. All my recent pieces end up taking place at night. For my next piece, or the one after that, I'll try to set a scene during the day.

Back to basics...

After relying on the wonders of Photshop for so long, I tried to limit myself here to colored pencils for these entries for "sketch_dailies". The theme was "Nosferatu".

"It Takes A Village"

Two themes recently at Sketch Dailies were "Bride of Frankenstein" last week, and the other day, simply "Frankenstein". I had intended this to be a late entry for "Bride", but can now use it for both. I'll post some process drawings soon, and I'll also be adding color, torch flames, etc. What's "Intoberfest"? Google "Inktober Initiative" to find out more.

"I twied and I twied!"

The theme at "sketch dailies" was "Elmer Fudd". My first picture was not of him hunting wabbits in the woods. It was him as the waiter in "Slick Hare", where a menacing Humphrey Bogart is very adamant about dining on a rabbit. I went back and watched the cartoon, and I twied and I twied to restage one of Elmer's last scenes from a different angle. I'm having twouble embedding videos especially since the scene in question does not seem to be on YouTube. Here's a link to it on vimeo. The scene is near the end.
