It's amazing to me how easy it is, to unintentionally pull elements of peoples drawing style. I did this drawing yesterday just doodling as I was talking to Robert Ryan Cory. Without even noticing I lifted part his over all tentacles, one eyed mutant, hanging creepy nose thing. Of course mine isn't anywhere near as entertaining and lyrical as his, but it's just weird how easy other peoples stuff can rub off on you.
When I was first drawing on Ren & Stimpy, I could barely draw the little bastards. That is, until I sat and watched John draw over my scenes. Watching his movements as he drew them was a complete eye opener.
