I went to the ctn animation expo a couple weeks ago. They had a model that would dress up in different themed costumes to draw. I got a chance to sit and sketch out some of his "gangster" poses. And gangsters LOVE to mess with their suspenders.
Drawing the model getting ready is always funner than drawing the fake poses.
Back to the fake poses..
I went to a drink and draw in downtown LA. These are a couple of sketches from said event.

Just over a month ago I got a job at Nickelodeon. Within just a couple of weeks my entire life was turned on it's head. New job, new apartment in a new town. Still trying to get into the groove of things up here and haven't had much time or energy to draw on my own lately. There is some down time at Nick here and there where I can just draw on my own. I haven't updated the ol' blog in a while so I thought I would share what little I have. These are a just a few of my mindless doodles from work.

A few months ago I went to Japan. These are a few of my sketches...The first thing I noticed on the train ride from the airport to Tokyo was the mixture of old Japanese design combined with modern living. Like traditional style roofs on old dumpy apartment buildings
Then in Tokyo everything is compact and dense. People on the train are quiet and polite. No talking on cell phones as that would be rude. Everyone is busy texting or sleeping. Everything is clean and well kept. People care about more than just themselves.
A couple of workers trying to get people into their store.
Most of the above sketches were drawn in Shibuya. Kind of the time square of tokyo. Lots of high end fashion. You're either dressed super trendy and modern or you're a stuffy business man.
These are a few people I saw on tv.
Everyone we met there was super nice. Special thanks to Tomo and Yuko who we stayed with most of the trip, and who showed us around. Also to Tomoko who made an awesome illustration for me and Beau and gave us each a super cool gift. To Kuni, who had us over to his home near mt. Fuji. And Chihiro for being awesome. And a thanks to a few of the other artists we met along the way, Miki, Kage, Tom, Midori, and Taka.

This is an animation test I did for a company called Slide. I had to design a table and crystal ball in their style and animate something. This is what I came up with. I don't think think the movement of the animation fit with what they wanted.
The colors got washed out when exported to quicktime. If anyone knows how to correct that please let me know.
