Talking about independent animation, working with what you got, and keeping on! In CAG 92 I talked with Ben Hatke about the importance of giving our heroes a reason to quit. Why?

Here’s what the cover to a Masters of the Universe comic would look like if I were creating it (click the image for a larger version). I did promise that I’d share wallpapers and the art files I created when drawing this piece, and you can get them at the bottom of this post. First, […]

Another style test with the Robo Force characters. Easily my favorite of the bunch. Now to do something a little more ambitious with these guys! What is Robo Force? It was a short-lived 80s toy line from Ideal. They had one cartoon special in the early 80s: Robo Force: The Revenge of Nazgar – TV Special/Animated […]
Last night I hinted that I'd have this done by the morning, and here it is. Doing some style tests on the Robo Force characters. My biggest question was can I make these guys look like they're moving. Also trying out inking and rendering styles. Now I have to take on one of the bad […]
Spending the afternoon working on freelance illustration work and listening to the various songs from the Polar Bear's Cafe anime series. I've becomed consumed by this sit-com since being introduced to it by +Audra Furuichi. It's every bit as great (if not better) than Takahashi's Maison Ikkoku. A bear that runs a cafe near a […]
I'm pretty excited about this. One of my favorite comics of all time is finally being rebooted as a cartoon for kids. A few years back I blogged about why everyone who loves comics should read Amethyst: http://comicsaregreat.com/why-everyone-who-loves-comics-should-read-amethyst And it's available as a collection here: http://www.amazon.com/Showcase-Presents-Amethyst-Princess-Gemworld/dp/1401236774 And you can see an interview with one of the comic's […]
