Something for the weekend

with 10 comments

One of my favourite web sites is John Kricfalusi’s blog. Even if you don’t know his name, you know his work: he created Ren & Stimpy. Recently on his blog, he’s been doing some animation lessons, talking his readers through a wonderful old book by a bloke called Preston Blair.
Doing (computer) animation is something that I don’t really enjoy so much these days; but as part of my desire to spend more time with a pencil in my hand, it seemed to me to be a perfect opportunity to have some fun.
Here’s my first effort at trying to get my hand back in shape for drawing: Billy running.

  5. Peeked at the John Kricfalusi blog. And laughed over and over again at that great Bugs Bunny & the gremlins piece. The little chuckle while he reads… =)

  7. Sweet. I think version two should feature a thought bubble saying something along the lines of “Wow! A stick!”, or something appropriately Billy-esque.

  9. Totally off topic but last night I was dreaming that I was seriously ill. The kind of illness that means spending weeks ot months in bed. And guess what my brother did – he installed a TV over my bed so little sis’ would not bore herself to death and the first DVD he gave me was a feature-length film of David with One Long Arm…
