Something I animated over the past month and a half. I had no control over art direction or anything – simply illustrated and animated based on style guide. Everything was very “Superfriends”-esque even with the color halftone texturing. It was fun to do character animation and quick action movements for once instead of “floaty” work. Anyways, it’s an explainer video so I hope you enjoy despite it being an ad. Onwards to the next animation project!
Weekend marker pinup. Had fun with this. I don’t have a scanner here in NYC so I have to use my cell camera to capture my drawings. Sucks. Click image above to see full marker drawing. Let me know what you think! Feels really good to be drawing my muse again!
Decided to draw a bunch of Kolevis this week. Didn’t use any references, basically just sketching here after feeling inspired by all of the graphic novels I’ve been reading. I need to publish a real graphic novel of her story. It would be perfect. But, until I’m able to I will have to just keep on drawing her until I get her look down just right. I think my favorite was drawn back in November of last year. I need to keep trying to mimic that look. But hey, this is what you get with markers and a half hour of free time.
My marker died, and so now I need a new one.
Click the inverted images for the real drawings! Trying something new with my theme, sorta like a blackboard and chalk!
Some clock work to keep in practice. Possible client wanted me to work on baseball poses, primarily a pitcher’s extreme poses. I didn’t make a Clock-Sketch video for these, but rather just did them on my own. Enjoy.

It’s my friend’s birthday. Caleb, haha, he loves Spiderman. Truth be told, I’ve never seriously attempted to draw a superhero before. Even though I read the comics, watch the movies, shows, etc, never have I truly given it a go. So here he is, as Spiderman. Commissioned by our friend Shar’Niese for his present. It was on the 19th, so I couldn’t post it until today. However, I drew it on Monday.
I used a pose reference off of Google images. Drawn with brush inks and sharpies.
I always truly believed that profile drawings were extremely difficult to do. I would choose 3/4 perspectives over a profile shot anyday because I couldn’t understand how to make them look right. So I’ve been attempting them in my figure drawing class. I think I finally got a good one out of it.
One of these days I’ll have my own scanner, maybe a large format one as well so that I don’t have to take crappy photos and edit the crap out of them.
So, we sketched outside today. It was fun. I really enjoyed the bright sunlight.
It was around 2pm, so we got some awesome cast shadows – 24″x18″ in size.
So, I’ve started my internship search for summer 2011. I sent out about 25+ applications so far which is about 10 more than I did last year, so I am really praying I get something! I have received 2 rejections in just a day and a “wait until fall to apply” response. You could pray for me if you found it in your best interest. I’d really appreciate it. You could also help by letting me know of any opportunities you happen to stumble upon. I’m always looking! Perhaps share Mourou with your friends and artists you know?
Here’s a figure sketch I did last week! Haha, all this paperwork is throwing me off my game.
