bear vs. 'grizzly man'

Caught that documentary 'Grizzly Man' on the tube last week... Was that something or what?...
Been drawing bears ever since... Gotta do a take on the 'Grizzly Man' himself, too.
Hope you dig the doodle. :)

ps-can't stop that text from getting hung-up
towards the top -haha-

closer-up on 'science fair'


science fair :)

Here's an illo i've been pecking-away at a little each night...
Still working out some layout issues, and a stronger BG treatment
than I had originally planned... But, you can get the idea. ;)
...Looks like our little nerd is bested by the smartest gal in school!
Hope you dig it!

Hey guys;
Didn't have too much time to get my blog-on tonight,
so I figured a quick little excercise would be fun. :)
Once in a while, I like to break down a design to it's very
simplest and basest form... still make it readable, but almost
design it like you were gonna make a plush (hello-kitty style!)
or vinyl toy. It's a fun way to practice creating appealing varieties
of shapes and proportions... And sometimes it can be tough!
... What better guy to try this with than E.T. ?!?!...

who's got the PROPS??...

...I do!...
I was diggin' thru some older work tonight, and came across a TON of
designs from a series of shorts we did for 'Nicktoons' a little while back...
Lot's of character designs and props from the various episodes.
I had the opportunity to Art Direct AND design virtually every prop and
character! A LOT of work, but such a blast! (even though I didn't get to
animate). ;)
We had so much fun doing these shorts! And it seems as if even more
exciting possibilities are on the horizon for us at 'Animation Collective.'
Right now we have our hands full with the upcoming show 'Kappa Mikey,'
and who knows what the future holds?!... good stuff happenin' at the AC.. :)
Thanks for lookin!


...more bear sketchies :)
