Original Cartoon Heroes: Book Research
Screw the internet, we're going OLD School Technology.
This is a great read.
Had a tough time finding this doozy. Thankfully, Fred scored me a copy. :)
Read this a few years ago, it was pretty good then. I'm sure a re-read will prove it's still holds up.
Looking forward to reading this one.
I tried out the snazzy new Tumblr photoset layouts over at the Lunch Break blog. If you wanna check em out, click here: http://lunchbreak.frederator.com/post/7695101407/testing-out-the-new-tumblr-photoset-layouts-w
We'll Miss You Harry Potter...
So I've started a very YELLOW, brand spanking NEW Tumblr, called Daily Doh!
Here's an explanation of sorts in it's side-bar:
I realized that every day before I get out of the shower, I ALWAYS doodle a Simpsons character on my shower's steam covered window door.
It's a ZEN kinda thing I guess.
This is my attempt to capture the spirit of those shower doodles via my trusty sketchbook or wacom tablet!
This is in no way affiliated w/ or endorsed by Matt Groening, The Simpsons, or Fox.
(Unless, they wanna hire me or something.)
In a nutshell it's daily Simpsons doodles by yours truly!
And w/ that I'm gonna hit the hay in melatonin induced slumber.

Original Cartoon Heroes: "Tex Avery" Behind the Art
Doing research on Tex Avery for Original Cartoon Heroes, and I cannot for the life of me find any good photos of him online. Too small, or he's looking away from the camera. I even tried my local library branch, but the 2 books I needed are in Reference and not available for check out. Bummed!
Luckily, Fred is ordering me the books off of Amazon! Thanks Fred! :)
In the meantime, here are a few studies of Tex I did.

Original Cartoon Heroes: "Betty Boop" Behind the Art
Got Betty Boop on my mind tonite as I'm working on Original Cartoon Heroes.
She was a cutie patoot!
my version just makes her look all drugged out, but at least she's a cutie drugged out patoot!

Original Cartoon Heroes: "Bakshi Studies" Behind the Art
For those of you not in the know, I've been working on a dream freelance project w/ Fred Seibert of Frederator on a postcard tribute series, named Original Cartoon Heroes.
Fred & I came up with a list of Animation Legends, and I'm very proud to pay tribute & give homage to these Greats in my style.
Above you will see my studies for Ralph Bakshi. The only one of the list who is still with us, still painting, still drawing, still stirring the Animation stew (and adding a lot of pepper and hot sauce while he's at it!)
Ralph Bakshi is a hero of mine, and I am pleased to say that he's using an early incarnation of my Original Cartoon Heroes tributes as his personal Facebook Avatar still! For that, I am honored beyond belief!
I can't wait to share the new version I've done w/ him!
Thank you Ralph.
Thank you Fred.
Thanks to Cartoons.
