MONSTERBOX




A friend sent me an enthusiastic recommend for a video of a short student animated film from France called, “MONSTERBOX.” I instantly fell in love with it, from wondrous character designs to charming storytelling. The students did such a terrific work it inspired me to make a drawing of some of the adorable characters from the short.  What a wonderful piece of art these animation students made.

Please check out the link to view this fantastic film: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DoLAoOkG5gY

MR. PEABODY'S IMPROBABLE HISTORY



 
 
 
I recently saw the new “Mr. Peabody and Sherman” movie and found it immensely enjoyable. As an enormous fan of the original 1960s cartoon segments from the “Rocky and Bullwinkle” show I was surprised that the filmmakers kept the characters and most of the humor true to what Jay Ward and the show’s writers established. I recommend it highly.
Also, quite honestly, I’ve been waiting for an opportunity to draw up a nice Peabody and Sherman art. The duo is one of my favorites since childhood and I have always wanted to make a tribute to this classic cartoon. The new movie just gave me a reason to do so.
“…Off to the WABAC machine, Sherman.”

RIP Harold Ramis

We have lost one of the great ones today. There is no debate that Harold Ramis was one of the pillars of modern comedy. His involvement with “the National Lampoon magazine,” and the films “Animal House,” “Vacation,” “Ghostbusters,” "Caddyshack,”  “Back to School,” “Meatballs,” and “Groundhog Day” was transcendent. Ramis had a pivotal role in sculpting my comedic taste and responsible for movies I just can’t imagine living without.

Thank you, Mr. Ramis for the joy and laughter.

Godspeed, sir. And nice shootin’ Tex.

The Famous Wall of Lilo & Stitch!





This is really quite amazing.
A classroom full of kids has taken my “Lilo and Stitch” drawings and created a display wall of supreme artistic awe!
What an inspiration!
I would like to give big thanks to the always wonderful and sweet Amanda Wadsworth for accepting any and all “Lilo and Stitch” art I present to her. And for allowing her class the creativity to fashion the best display exhibit an artist could ask for.
I am truly touched.
Humble thanks, kids
From,
The guy that draws those “Lilo and Stitch” pictures. J
