Some day, I'd like to be dedicated enough to this that I can post on a daily basis. Even if it's just short, minimalistic sketches. Maybe I should invest in doing some of those more often, just to keep the mind/eye exercised.
In any case, this was done over the weekend last week.
Been working some more on drawings for a new "project" (what to do when "project" sounds too formal and "dicking around" sounds too crude?); see left.
For more brainstorming sketches for this same "project", see previous blog post.
Dug this old sketch up, done more than a year ago (click to enlarge):
Here's one more from more current times! (click to enlarge):
Lately I've been feeling very inspired by artist Jim Woodring.
Just ordered his new book, Weathercraft, and can't wait til I get it! Here is a review of Weathercraft from Comics Alliance. Woodring's work is an incredibly great mix that evokes surrealism, old-time woodcuts and manuscripts, nightmares, dreams, grotesqueness, and kitschy-cutesy-cartooning. It's pretty amazing.
I'm seriously of the opinion that he's one of the best cartoonists out there right now.
But in any case, I've been feeling motivated to get my imagination and hands going again (drawing after a hiatus of, er, NOT drawing really does result in stiff hands getting crampy at being put to use again!). Two sketches today, posted below. I have some ideas milling around my head, and some characters that need to form a bit more. I'll have to work on fleshing things out... Well, I have my work cut out for me now!
