So this is post #2 on the lineitup blog! I'm not going to lie, I'm not completely happy with it but with it being the christmas rush this month and work getting kinda busy this is what I came up with. Let me know what you guys think! And Merry Christmas!
I used to hate getting so bundled up that I couldn't even move.

Chuck goes 3d!


Cartoon Brew posted this with a comparison to the original.

If you haven't already seen Seen Froggy Evening, I suggest you check out the original first. Its much better than this (not saying that this is bad) but it has a very classic great cartoon feel to it. This 3d rendition of it is great as well, but not as pleasing in my opinion.

Ratatouille Hits stores Nov 6th!




Its here its here!..well almost...I have been waiting since seeing Ratatouille in theatres for it to come out on blueray! Literally! I refuse to buy any other blueray disc until I get my hands on a copy of Ratatouille on Blueray! My family and I just got a new HD tv about a month ago and I have yet to see nice sharp video and stunning colours. And what better video than Ratatouille to showcase that! OH OH! AND A NEW SHORT! BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! My friend Rat looks so pleasing to the eye! And the fact that its classically drawn is even sweeter!

Mall Café Sketches

Here are some Sketches I did while at Vaghn Mills Mall and Bramalea City Centre....












Second trip to the zoo in 2007




this is the Przewalski Horse. No my proportions aren't that bad but yeah.....thats a weird looking horse and apparently the only TRUE wild horse.

Here are some Camel sketches....they were the first sketches of the day so they're warm-ups but still fun!



While sketching the Camels a cute little Spanish girl who couldnt have been more than 4 was watching me draw and kept getting closer and closer until she was right beside me. So I asked her if she liked the drawings and she said yes. I then asked if she'd like to try, (with he approval of her mother of course), and she drew me up this little doodle on my page................







I think its amazing that it actually looks like a camel! She saw it had a long neck....it looked like it was smiling.... and she got an ear in there as well. Awesome stuff! :D



Here's a closer look at that

First Zoo post of '07

Watching Colbert Report one day and I just laughed to myself about how hyper active Colbert is. He seems to always have this type of expression in my eyes.
These guys were hanging around the zoo. Looked kinda funny to me.

Starting going to the zoo every week now that I have the time. I'm a bit rusty but here are the pics. The Orangutans were the most fun to draw in my opinion because they were HUGE and so close to the looking glass. It blows my mind how much like us they are.





Went to Tim Horton's earlier in the week and Drew these guys really quick.
