The love of cartoons started it out with waking up early to watch my Saturday morning cartoons. I grew up on mostly shows from the 80's and early 90's. I know that they weren't the best of cartoons at the time but I've loved them then and I haven't stopped.
From that then drawing came. I started by copying from Tiny Toon books and TMNT cartoon books. There was this one book about Donatello where he met a cartoonist who had a crystal that made everything he drew come to life. That's my little origin story.
Now I can appreciate the art behind it all - the overlapping actions, the dynamic posing, the way a hand settles when a glove is slowly being pulled off. I watch animations now and I'm seeing things that no one else is seeing, well except for other animators. Animation is my little secret.
That's my lame intro. I finish off now with a where I was with my art. Hopefully I'll start posting new stuff just to see where I am.
Portrait of Julia Stiles I did in high school. I had a huge crush on her.
The Donatello I did when I was at Humber. I could only draw skinny figures.
I used to have a thing for drawing eyes. This was done at work when I was bored.
