Just dropped in for a little update. Above is the backdrop I'll be utilizing in my new upcoming website. Who knows? I might just finish this one by the end of the year.
Emphasis on doodles: some of the stuff you see in the backdrop made their way towards canvas and/or wood panel at some time or another.
Doodle sketch #1: "Meaty Geazer" got redone quite well into "Slave to Nourishment." (2007; 11" x 28." Acrylics on wood panel). I might as well continue a series in this vein. (Yes, I'm aware I've misspelled "geezer." And the puns...)
Doodle sketch #2: "Some Girl I Drew on the Corner of Sketchbook One Afternoon in Intermediate Animation Class" found new color (and direction) in "La Blue Girl/ Club Free Spirit." Experimental at best. (2004; 24" x 18." Acrylics on canvas.)
Other elements include: Danny the Squirrel, a semi-developed character who has been voiced by Nathan Lane (unwittingly) in an animation lip-sync test. The storyboard panel on the lower-right corner starts off the saga of Noirabella, a series idea I had a while back which needs more polishing up to see any light of day.
That's all you get to know.
"Soon" means "never" in Hollywood, so I'm not going to be jinxing anything if I say I plan on finishing my website real pronto. Rest assured that I'll be posting up results as and/or if things get done.
