Post it drawings@ the Shrek screening

Just killing time waiting for the Asifa screening of Shrek.
You gotta love a room full of cartoonists. We have such varied and wonderful shapes, and we tend to amplify them intentionally.

Every Day Life Gets Better and BETTER!

I'm not bragging, I'm just really, really happy.I work on one of the few shows that is still storyboard driven. I've a great bunch of friends, who have all proven that they are there for me if I get into a pinch. From lending an ear to my tales of woe, to helping me move heavy objects from one side town to the other, and let me tell you a body can get pretty heavy trying to carry it those three hundred or so yards from the highway. Let alone digging a hole deep enough so that it stays buried. On top of that I've a hot girl friend. Who is a personal trainer, and in such wonderful shape that sometimes it's hard to believe. As if that weren't enogh, she also used to be a chef! (and as my famous cartoonist friend Gary Halgren once pointed out "Good kissing may not last, but good cooking do.") Which means she cooks as good as she looks. I mean a different savory meal almost every night. She is simply the bestestest in whole wide world!

Okay enough about how good I've got it. Thanks for listening.

Now for something completely different.

A grouping of silly ass heads.

Big Baby Scam

As I recall, minus the establishing shot and truck in on the tree, this is the way we started Big Baby Scam

Pan over gnawed tree branch to Stimpy.

Adjust over with Stimpy's head turn. He presents Ren with a freshly chewed pile of tree bark.

Ren tries to swallow the puply goodness.

But his sensitive digestion rejects it

Big Baby Scam Roughs

I cleaned my home office last weekend and boy did it need it. There were vines growing in through the windows, and spiders as big as squirrels hiding inside. I'm pretty sure they were using my fax machine to order pizza. In the process of cleaning out this foul nest, I came across piles and piles of rough drawings. Mostly inspirational stuff that I used to kick start gag ideas.

Ren And Stimpy Settling into their new digs as babies. This is before Ren finds there is a down side to being a baby.

Stimpy enjoying a lovely tree bark snack.

Establishing shot of Stimpy in the tree above the baby's window.

Ren tries to chew the bark but his feeble mandible isn't up to the job.

Mr.Pipe steps outside to talk to a cop that is trying to return his real baby boys.

I think this was the first drawing I did for Baby Scam. We decided that instead of starting out with R&S so happy, we would push Ren's level of misery with his life in the trees.

This is one of two drawings John did for me to explain his theroy on baby fat.

This is the false start I was talking about in the last post.
We decided to milk Ren's misery a bit and do a slower build to finding the solution to his woes.

The house a the tree thumbnail should be reversed.

On My Walls

This is a post in response to Uncle Eddie's query as what is on our walls.

The first piece is one of several I bought at the Librafest auction when I was stinking drunk.
If you look closely you can read the peacocks reaction to seeing the wicked witch flying across his garden. If you can't make it out it's"Goddamn Motherfucker"

The next one is a photo of a mexican mummy taken by my long time good friend CarolAnn Hawkins

This one is a drawing by my Step-daughter Savanna Sammi Sunflower.

This is one of my layouts from a Spumco Nike commercial. I don't think it ever saw air.

The title card for Onward and Upward drawn by me and wonderfully painted by Kristy Gordon
