And the mind wanders at work yet again...

Seeing as I can't stand to ever throw out a piece of paper, most of my work drawings have been on the back of script notes, shot list and other misc. work related paperwork. It would be awful if some poor tree died in order to make a dumb ass commercial. Hopefully little sketches like this will pull these unfortunate out of an awful paper limbo and send it to a tree farm in the sky. Or perhaps come back as a winning lotto ticket, or a bit of scrap paper some pretty lady scratches her phone number upon for some nervous fella.

Knee deep in it


What to say... There is entirely too much going on at the moment, work is busy, tons of projects I'm trying to finish up at home, personal finance issues hang in the balance(taxes...grrr). But I've made a commitment to myself to post stuff at least once a week, and this shall be no exception. Just a little sketch I filled in from life a while ago. I took notice of how certain people around walk and idle. Everyone has there default pose, personal gesture, way of handling their selves. This person in particular either had really bad posture or just had an obvious way of expressing (I'm thinking the latter). I believe this particular pose was covered in the Richard Williams book "Animators Survival Kit". Anyhow, take some time to observe people, it will enrich your art, and even if you aren't an artist, it should enrich your understanding of people and hopefully make you appreciate life just a little more.

Some people win..

...some people lose, I suppose everyone else is a push. The grand lottery of life is a funny thing. Some people are born into enormous wealth and privilege and breeze through the rest of their lives having never accomplished anything. Some born with these same opportunities use it to be great philanthropist and share their gift with he world. Others scratch their way up from the bottom of the barrel to become great, only to degenerate into the former class of people that just slide by until they die.
What's my point with all of this? I really don't know. If you happened to be blessed with money or skill, do something with it. If you have to scratch and save and work for everything you get then that's great, but shut up and keep working. Nobody likes a whiner.

My turtle brethren


I wish I had a little more to post after a week of no post. Sadly much like the turtle, I've been a bit slow moving in personal things. Work has found me animating some curious little cookies (or are they cakes?) Until I can post about that enjoy this random shot from a short film I'll probably never finish.
