Some New Things


Hey all you happy bloggers, sorry I have not been on in awhile, but I was in the hospital and I'm feeling better so I hope y'all can forgive my absentee.

Anyways to start off I did a bg painter from a hanna-barbara cartoon, "Skeeter Trouble."  I really enjoyed the colors in this one, but I put yellow on the tree and chimney because I ran outta white.  I think it still looks pretty good.


Here are some drawings I did at home of some cartoon toys I had.  MAgic gumball Mickey and Alvin the piggy bank.

I read a recent post of John K's talking about Smokey the "man-boob" bear and I found this one that Richard Scarry did.  I have some art of Dick's that I enjoy and I will post some up some day.



Here is another bear painting Dick did and I love it. Cropped it by accident and I couldn't do anything about so silence to all those haters.


Here's some new and old caricatures.  The first one is a guy I saw on the train and I'm trying to make my caricatures more funny so here was my first attempt at a new style I'm currently developing for me.

Here is some more people on the train.

My dad side view


I did the next two at the hospital and I don't really like them.... Oh well, the noses are weird and I'm working on that.

Here's a quick one I did of Chris.


Another quick one and I liked this one it's funny, Chris, on the other hand, thought I made him look like a snobby English man.
 

Here is a color one of my friend Leah.  Sorry the color stinks the resolution was bad when I scanned it.

The next one is an idea the people at my work and I had for a show on adult swim.  It involves Nick Manning, who is a porn star that often appears on the Howard Stern show, and in my cartoon he will be a porn star secret agent. I want it to be animated like the Clutch Cargo cartoons,  but I hope I don't get sewed by Conan O'Brian because he already does stuff like that on his show.  I love his show too. 


Devin again

My friends Jake and Chris drinking with the orioles mascot.  I made them look gay hehehehe.
The beautiful Naoko who lets me call her nacho. 


 

And that's it, I will up date more so Chris get off my back and stop breathing on me!!!!


Byeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!

Chris the librarian

Chris the librarian is always showing me lots of really interesting stuff at the library.  Below is a book that has screenshots from laurel and hardy films.

The screenshots I scanned is from this gag, in which, Hardy somehow gets a paintbrush stuck to his face.  Chris and I had a discussion to why we thought this part of the film was hilarious and part of it dealt with the character's mannerisms.  Hardy's expressions are usually very extreme and full of anger and Laurel's expressions  are dopey and unaware of the conflicts that exist in the story.  The balance of these personalities create an illusion that we as viewers can picture these people existing in the real world and as a result we laugh at their mischievous behavior. Take a gander at the shots below.


I love this scene!






If this part of the story does not make sense I think I can explain what happened.  Hardy fell down a chute after the sink water splashed into his face.  Hardy gets stuck at the end of the chute and Laurel confusingly tries to help Hardy squeeze out.  As this is happening a barrel of Shellac? also falls down the chute racing after Hardy.



Chris also showed me a really cool new yorker artist, Charles Addams, or what most people know him as the creator of the addams family. This first one was taken off his website...
charlesaddams.com
For all you baltimorians looking at this blog I found two Edgar Allan Poe illustrations mister Charles Addams did.
The below caption says "occasionally."

All the captions say nevermore
The picture above is Chris's favorite.
"You must try not to worry.  Dr. Perry is doing everything humanly possible."
I love the composition in this one above.

The caption on the right panel says, "We're not living happily ever after."

I love these horrible marriage drawings Addams draws they are really funny.  The caption says, ".... and now, George Pembrook, here is the wife you haven't seen in eighteen years!"


"This is your room, if you should need anything, just scream."

Suicide :)

I don't even want to tell you what the caption says on this one because it's such a bizarre image so just imagine.

"For heavens sake, can't you do anything right!"
I like this last black and white one because it's pleasant, eerie, easy to read, and the hand coming out of the record player is incredible.  (I wish I had one!!)

Chris doesn't necessarily like his colored ones.  I agree with him that they are definitely not as good as his black and whites, but they're not bad.  

I'm not a big fan of this butterfly composition, but I love the concept that an adult man is butterfly hunting and that he is unaware about the humongous, monster butterfly is looming around the corner.
Both Chris and I liked this one.
Weird!

Here are also some caricatures I threw in, I have lots more and I am working in color now.  

Below are two more of my friend Mary who works with me at the schools digital library.  She's a funny person to chat with.


Below are two pics that she drew of me.  The one on the left is this incident that happened to me when I accidently went to a gay bar and the one on the right is me being melted by jesus's laser eyes.  (It's a phobia I have whenever I walk into a church)

I kinda made him look like a ancient chinese master of martial arts, idk
Tanya with devil horns
One of my bosses at the MRC, digital library, Devin.  She's awesome
And finally my other boss, Audrey. She's awesome too!!!
Anyways thats it for now. Sorry for not updating this blog in awhile, I will post another one soon....
