Talking about Emmett Otter’s Jug Band Christmas yesterday lead to this. Not my best as I struggle with perspective but it’s okay. I drew it while watching the show and looking at pictures of the characters on the intrawebs…
Just finished drawing this. The Misers, Heat and Cold, from the greatest Christmas cartoon ever made, “The Year Without a Santa Claus.” Please note I said cartoon as I still think “Emmett Otter’s Jug Band Christmas” is the best holiday special ever created. This was a lot of fun to draw and they fit pretty well in my “style” so also easy to draw. When I was a kid I was afraid of these guys and now I look at them and think, “How in the hell was I scared of two campy goofballs singing show tunes?” Lol, kids….
Just completed what I guess you could call my first commission. A friend requested a family portrait drawn in my typical cartoon style and I was only too happy to oblige. He hired me expecting to pay but, as it is my first ever job of this type and he is a very good friend, I have declined to accept payment. The actual finished art has the family name on it and I’m told it is to be framed for display in their household which is super awesome.
Another drawing I did today while subbing. I was looking at a book of animals in the library and sketched these seals onto the back of my sub plans sheet. The Easter Seals drawing seems familiar so I’m not sure if it’s an old idea I had or someone else did it already so forgive me ahead of time.
Today’s Mr. H is based off this sheet that I handed out to students in Art class today. They were supposed to pick out the various parts they wanted and put them together to form an elf. The red one is what I drew on the dry erase board as an example and the actual Mr H is me as one if these elves. Fun day today!
What I’m working on right now. This will be the lead story in a comic I’m working on called “Little Doodles”. The hero of Grocer City, probably not the hero it wants or needs, FruitBat. This is just a small diversion from “Wastes of Space” to clear the palette so to speak before I jump into the third issue. Still waiting for a release date for issue one so stay tuned.
