Christmas is the time for Concerts!!!

OK, so there was a Christmas concert up in hamilton... Orchestra, kids choir... this is boring, the better concert is the second one.

one of the girls in the kids choir had HUGE hair.

and it was cute, so I made a character out of her hair. I think she probably lives down the street from sour berries kid.

So then there was a WALK THE MOON CONCERT AT THE MAD HATTER. An UGLY (or just misunderstood) SWEATER PARTY. and it was CRAZY fun. and I'm sorry for my handwriting; that's what happens when it's dark. Painted under my sketches in photoshop.

Everybody and the WTM dudes were sweaterfied...

Especially Sean. Kevin's sweater may have been pink, but Sean's had cats AND flowers. WIN.

the videos I took at that show are uploading AS I TYPE THIS. I got WTM's album at the show, as well as an EP by The Pass - love 'em both! Music is a wonderful thing.

Burning Things

Drawn in Ballpoint.

Burning Christmas catalogs and ads is so fun, it's almost evil. MOOHAHA!

F*cking Shakespeare

An intellectual discussion at the office.

Lordy Lord... Lord of... Rings. Lord of the Rings.

drawings from The Two Towers.

Wormtail is surprisingly fun to draw.

So I showed these drawings to my Professor to make sure they were within the assignment boundaries, and he said "yes, but I wish you had more full-body studies and gestures." That was when I realized.... I should probably just stop watching Peter Jackson films for the rest of the quarter. :)

Here, have a hand, too. It's not going anywhere.

I'll have some o' those full-body type gestures up next. Donald O'Connor, anyone?...

The Great Sketch Dump of December 2010


...with a true story about a whiteboard, John Webber and manatees.

and a manic insomniac greaser dude named Neem. why Neem? it's fun to say. tried a color scheme for him in photoshop, looks pretty good:

and last for the moment, a collection of faces from around Montgomery Hall. Most on this page are from Jason Maurer's awesome Senior 2 class. :) (even more awesome now that it's finished!)

MORE IS COMING... BEWAREY. Random notes:

The Pass and Eat Sugar are two bands playing with Walk the Moon at the UGLY SWEATER show down at the Mad Hatter Saturday. AWESOME LOCAL BANDS YO! Check 'em out! If not in person, at least on their web-o-sites. :D

Also, band Pomplamoose is helping out with a book drive for a school in Richmond CA. you donate a book, you get to download their Christmas album for free! and I must say, it contains the most lovely sounds.

Can you tell I have this thing for music? Ta.

I was born...

A UNICORN. A unicorn with a big butt! I found an old mix CD a friend made for me back in 2005 today, and it has the unicorns on it. they make me happy. :D

so, this random drawing is dedicated to the animation club at Walnut Hills HS. you guys were so fun!!! It's a usual thing for people to not know what I'm talking about, but it's unusual for them to actually be interested. YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!

SO, I've still got sketches from Webber's sketchbook to scan. I left Savannah before Thanksgiving, but it was only 5 days ago that I got to Cincinnati to stay (for the next month). Been rambling around Indianapolis and Chicago. I've gotten my computer set up now, but the pickle-scanner's still in it's box. that will be remedied this weekend.

I'm working for Plow Digital this month! I'm a temp/freelancer/intern to help them finish animation on one of their current projects - a Facebook game. I animated an awesome waterfall for it last week. My supervisor said "that's way cooler than what they're paying for". harhar.

ok peace out.
