June Sketchbook Variety Pack!

It's been a while since I've posted drawings -- with all the moving, I haven't had access to a scanner until now. So here's a grab bag of sketches from June!

June 3 -- My last drawing of my old house. That's my cat Pow-Pow staring out the window from her kitty tree perch.

June 8 -- A couple of tiny landscape paintings, done with watercolor and white gouache.

June 15 -- Little figure paintings from a summer SHM life drawing session.

June 22 -- Sketches of people on BART.

June 23 -- Drawing out of my head, a dryad or some kind of forest creature.

June 25 -- Sketching from movies, 2046 and Alien.

Jimmy Rodent Video Game

Now online -- the entire Jimmy Rodent Video Game short film I promised to post:

(13.6 megs, right-click to download)

We did this entire film in one night, as a "sketchbook animation" assignment. Geoff directed and I did the animation. Just about every image in the clip is lifted from one NES game or another, with the exception of Jimmy himself. And we did all the animation, unbelievably, in Adobe ImageReady, animating everything straight ahead, frame-by-frame, as an animated gif.
