Alrighty, back to it. With a push from your favorite Uncle and mine I am going to try to push out 7 posts in 7 days. Not that its any great feat you might think, but for me it might be, because I've been slack on the updates since earlier this past summer.
I was inspired recently by the artwork done by school kids that is displayed in L.A. metro station at Hollywood and Vine, of hot rods and street rods. So here's a freeballin' sketch that I'll try to bring to a more pretty looking final this week... if not sooner.

Here's just a couple before zzzzz hands . I really like the feel of micron straight on the paper. Sometimes pencil makes me work sloppy. I like having to decide first time where the line will go as I put it down, without the ability to ctrl+z or erase. I'm working on an idea that might incorporate drawing 30 000 hands. Yeah, I'm thinking thats an insane number, but I work in animation so you know I'm patient already.

.Who knows what was going on when I drew this...other than marker madness and a micron mashin'. Half Man Half Warhog...it kind of reminds me of those Kool Keith rantings about Half Man Half Shark. Dig the insects crawling around on him. I've just started a new job, in a new city, in a new time zone, after 4 months in a different hemisphere...so I think its worth pushing my hands out of old ways (especially nowadays, if not always).

Here's a few sketches from an Easter trip to Tanzania's Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti. One is of the view of our lodge's "backyard" where the meanest animals in Africa, Buffalo roam free. Maasai warriors would walk us back and forth from our rooms to the eat spot with long spears for protection. We came to learn that the spears really wouldn't do anything to such tuff animals, but at least it made us feel safe...at first.
And then there's some masks and wood sculpture that caught my attention.
