Movie Stars of Yore

Shirley Temple was the biggest movie star to ever hit the screen then growed up to be a major diplomat. Want a caricature of your favorite star? For a reasonable price (whatever you can afford) you can have one on your wall to worship for all time.

New cartoons on the interweb

Big shot movie star Tom Hanks has a new cartoon on the web called Electric City, a futuristic type of hitman story with eye-gouging, groin punching, and adult action for all ages. Don't let the kids watch it. I did layouts and a little animation. There's a good interview with the director on Cartoon Brew also., /ep1-en-truth-or-consequences.html

Sorry about that empty post, my blog won't let me post imagery all of a sudden. I'll try to get 'er going thanks for the puzzled comments. Yeah that's it - minimalism - snowman in a blizzard, very avant garde.

Cool shots from classic movies

These are from "Great Expectations" directed by David Lean. Some of the best compositions and cinematography in the business. Also check out Lean's "Oliver Twist" if you have never seen it. Some really cool shots and great acting, too! Maybe Alec Guiness's finest moment along with "the Lady Killers", circa 1955.

Drawing Tips from Famous Smart-Alecks

This is the final art for the project. Drawn in pencil from photos, then colored with markers.

Drawing Tips from Famous Smart-Alecks

Send me a picture of your kid and I'll draw him. This shows a step-by-step demonstration starting with the photographs, then the first sketches, to the final cartoony version. Start by just sketching from the photo, sort, of realistic, to get warmed up, and to know the subject. Next step, try to cartoon-ize a little, caricature as you go. Layout out your final composition with light blue pencil, adding, details in order of importance. Before applying the marker color remember to erase most of the pencil so as to avoid smearing.

Amazing shots from silent movies

All these shots are from F.W. Murnau's Faust, 1926. This movie is one of the finest examples of art direction and composition in cinematic history. Disney's Night on Bald Mountain sequence in Fantasia borrowed heavily from Faust. I strongly recommend seeing this if you can get it on dvd. Murnau also directed Nosferatu and Sunrise. Sunrise is maybe the most brilliant movie ever filmed. You have to see it if you love movies.
