Justice League!

Just got back from the Bruce Timm retrospective thing at the Egyptian, which was fun and awesome. Hooray to Jon Gibson for putting it on, and Hooray to Bruce for making so many amazing cartoons. If you're too young to remember how crappy superhero cartoons were before Bruce got his hands on Batman, consider yourself lucky. In honour of Bruce, here are some Justice League Unlimited (+ Firestorm) doodles I did in San Diego last summer.

I'm not sure why it scanned so terribly. All characters ™ and © DC Comics.

Boo Hoo Hoo

Hey, look, Cyborg's sad about something.

Is it because of all of the messed-up Cyborg heads in last Sunday's post? No, it's because he just found out that he's my girlfriend's least favourite Titan. At least, that's what she told me a year or so ago, so I drew this. It didn't do anything to change her mind. Better luck next time, Cy. For the record, you're not my least favourite Titan (that would be Jericho). Here's Cyborg in colour.

Coloured by Glen Murakami, but I'm sure the colours are all messed up, what with being copied, scanned and adjusted. Oh well. As always, Cyborg © and ™ DC Comics.

So much for Plan A

I was planning to update this weekly at first, and then gradually drop off to semi-annual posts, but I forgot that Brianne Drouhard's magic internet ninja skills would alert her to my blog the instant I made it (her blog is linked in my sidebar). I also neglected to anticipate that she would then set up a link, drawing people here when all there is to see is one page of messed-up Cyborg heads. So here's another post, and I'll post, say, every other day for a while, dropping to twice a week, then weekly, and eventually forgetting my password and drifting away, as originally planned.

This one is a drawing I did with a red Sharpie during the recording of Haunted.

As you can see, it totally encapsulates the somber atmosphere of the episode. Here's another version of the same idea, this time going over the rough red layer with a black Sharpie, while still failing utterly to achieve a finished look.

New blog, first post

I'll admit to totally hopping the bandwagon here - everyone at work is starting up a blog, so I am too. To give mine something a little different, I'm going to use it primarily to post "idiot style" drawings. That is to say, unpolished drawings, crude but amusing, that are more about exploring some weird idea than being a good finished drawing. Sketches and scribbles and so forth. I do a lot of these, mostly because I am lazy and easily amused.

Most of the drawings I'll be posting were done during meetings or recordings or generally any time I should be paying attention to something else. As an example, my first post is a page of messed-up Cyborg heads I drew during the story break meeting for Wavelength. Teen Titans being the show it is, a surprising number of these actually turn out to be useful.

This was drawn with a fine black Sharpie on animation paper. Cyborg is ™ and © DC Comics.

I'll try to post something new every week.
