  [layout and sketches from a recent cartoon]


September 30, 2008

I just put up a cartoon called At The Pet Store that involved a parrot with quite the vocabulary, unfortunately, it's rather rude. Anyway, this is the rough outline that I made for it, to block out the 4 frames. I have scribbles of the dialogue, and a few test studies of the parrot as it appears in the four frames.

The last drawing had too much of an arch to the neck. Also, there's a small sketch of the bird to the left of the third frame, which is what I wound up using, rather than the bigger one (which has more of his eye).

A larger version of this scan can be found here.

I tend to doodle. Over the years, I've accumulated lots of random sketches of things, sometimes people, sometimes things, and sometimes just abstract lines. The basic idea on these pages is for me to slowly scan in highlights from my collection of random quick doodles. I also am providing a place where I can explain what it is or what motivated it or perhaps some reason why I'm not to blame. With the sketches of people, their name may be hand-written, or there might be a talk title provided, but I will tend to avoid providing full names. I don't mind if people know who they are, I just don't want them coming up on search engine hits, since that might be a bit rude.

Note that the images are PNGs with transparency. Mozilla and Firefox properly render them. Safari too, I think. Internet Exporer doesn't. I don't care.
If you want to see the image without the annoying blue-lined background image, just click on the image.
