Drawing at church





Sitting in church it's hard not to draw especially when you have so many models who sit so still. I also have a two year old which is why there is a drawing of Darth Vader battling Luke Skywalker. I also ended up with some great drawings of Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Lightning McQueen, and Mater.

Illustration Friday: Spooky

As a kid I don't ever really remember Halloween being scary, except I guess for one thing. The biggest fear I had as a kid on Halloween was getting inedible items, things like pencils, stickers, and horrible candy. Circus peanuts certainly classified as one of those horrible candies. Also included were: Mary Janes, licorice, and the peanut butter candy with the orange and black wrappers.

A GIF



Jumping on the GIF bandwagon, here is a little diddy I made to see if the two states of the hand, opened and closed, looked real enough for a banner I helped create. By the way the closed hand was faked, but I think it turned out pretty well. If you want see more animated GIFs here is a good site: senorgif.com

Illustration Friday: Beneath

I cross this bridge most mornings on my way to work. It's a private bridge, which is something I thought didn't existed anymore, so occasionally it's closed. The thought of a troll or bridge keeper has entered my mind from time to time, because a private bridge seems like something out of a story, so the word for this week's Illustration Friday made me think instantly of the bridge and its mysterious keeper, actually it's probably not really a mysterious, but the truth I'm sure isn't half as exciting.

Opening Title Sequence for "To Kill a Mockingbird"

The other night I watched "To Kill a Mockingbird" on TV, and even though I have seen the movie before I was still very impressed by the opening title sequence, it's beautiful. The Art of The Title Squence is a site dedicated to the opening credits and you can watch the opening here.
