Jude Law revisited

Hey, remember this old drawing of Jude Law I did? I do. Remember how absolutely crappy it was? How it just reaked of incompetance throughout? Worse yet, it didn't even look like Jude. It looked more like Keifer Sutherland and Bart Simpson had a baby together or something.

Back at animation school, we got a visit from one Brain "Inspector Gadget" Lemay. One piece of advice that I remember him giving us is to take a terrible drawing you did in your past and draw it again but try to improve on it. So, that's exactly what I've done with Jude Law here. I know it's way too late to enter Mr. Kricfalusi's Jude Law contest but that doesn't matter. It's all about the continuous learning process that every artist must go through.

So, without further adieu, here's my new Jude Law caricature:

Once again, I also drew his girlfriend.

I've been published recently

Right now I'm involved in a nice little upstart organization called Valueable Comics. I didn't join until rather recently so I only have a comic in Issue #3.

If you don't beleive me, I'll post the table of contents found inside the cover:

The actual comic I drew in on my hard drive so I could easily post it here too. But I won't. You'll have to actually buy the comic book if you want to read it. >:P

Anyway, there are many talented artists who contribute to this publication, including its founder Shawn McLeod. So, if you're in the Regina area check out all the comic book stores in the city. This goes on sale as of tomorrow.

Good Riddance to Bad Rubbish

The jerk in the center of the picture above just got fired. We all knew him as Chris (and we really didn't want to know any more than that). His termination was imminent for a few reasons:

1. He "conveniently" didn't show up for work after payday. And when he did, it hurt him inside that he couldn't do whatever he did with his money on that day. (Whatever it was, I don't know and I'm too nauseated to care).

2. He came to work completely high once.

3. He was always flirting with the someone else who works there and creeping him right out in the process.

4. He was basically one of the most annoying human beings one could ever meet.

Feel free to comment either on how much you like this drawing or on how much that guy sucks.

Condoleezza Rice

Okay, I think we all know what Ms. Condoleezza Rice looks like. And, I'm sure most of the people out there who know what she looks like also know that she's a lot of fun to draw. Her most striking feature is of course the huge gap in her teeth that can be found most often on crazy broads like Madonna or David Letterman.

But, there's another feature of her hilarious face that I haven't seen too many caricaturists capture. Y'see, whenever she's mad that upper lip goes waaaaaaay down forward almost eclipsing her bottom lip even.

Attention all caricaturists, newspaper or otherwise, we need to see more of this. Condy's lip must be emphasized. No excuses. I want to see a blitzkreig of Condy lips well into 2008 or however much longer her job lasts.

Oh, and if you want to see how I feel about her boss, check out this old post of mine here.

Happy drawing!!

I drew the dog

This blog said one thing: draw a dog. So I drew a dog. I drew a dog and put it on my blog. He's a blog dog. You like my blog dog? He's a good blog dog. I am agog at this blog dog. No, I didn't draw a hog. I drew a dog. If I drew a hog I'd be saying "look at my blog hog". But NO!!!! It's a blog dog, so I say look at my blog dog.

You know, you couldn't see my blog dog if there was smog. Well, I guess he'd just be a smog blog dog wouldn't he? Do you see any smog? Well then I gues he's not a smog blog dog. He's just a blog dog.

What if he fell in a bog? On top of a hog? Within a cloud of smog? And I drew it and put it on my blog? What would he be? He'd be a soggy bog hog smog blog dog. Would you like that? NO!!! That's cruel. Poor dog and poor hog. Let's just leave it at a blog dog, okay? Thank you.

I got hosed

Last year at this time, someone commissioned me through e-mail to draw some "hip hop" fish for some kind of project he was doing. So, like a sucker, I did it. I didn't sign any contracts or get any money upfront or any kind of business transaction thingy like that. I just whipped up the above graphic, sent it to him through e-mail, and heard nothing. After some time, I e-mailed him again asking what was going on with these fish and he simply said "I'll let you know in a few months". Well, like I said, it's been almost a year and I'm still waiting.

So, if anyone out there has seen these fish or a slight variation of them plastered on something(s) anywhere in this world, remember that they came from me. I have the original drawing here at home so I could definitely prove ownership if it ever came down to a court battle but I'm sure that won't happen.
