Cats and Crosshatching...

Had the parents visiting all last week, so I haven't drawn a thing all week. 9_9
My dad and I were on a big Robert Crumb kick last week, ordering CDs and a book on Amazon while I picked up the R.Crumb handbook. I now want to chronicle anecdotes of my childhood in anally cross-hatched glory. God dammit, is there such thing as artistic ADD??





I like drawing obese felines :)


Bunch of cartoon gals based on Sears catalogue photos. The swimsuits were damn sexy back then, but I'm SO glad we don't have to wear support underwear like that anymore...

Keep on truckin', Amy!
It's easy to get in an R. Crumb mood. The man has amazing talent. I received a copy of the "Crumb" DVD for Christmas last year. Best artist Documentary ever! To think that he is the normal one in his family. :P

Great page of catitudes. My favorite is the angry march in the lower right of the first page. There's a kitty that means business!

I want to splash gobs of praise on those Bathing Beauty sketches! (Gee, that sounded a lot less pervy in my head . . .*sigh*) The 's' shaped girl is especially wonderful, as is the bullet-bra lady.

The "Best for Last" award goes to the Paradise Rosie picture. This one is beyond charming! The pure joy captured in her dance and facial expression is captivating. Great shirt on the musician as well.

How long before we get to see a Rosie comic/cartoon/major motion picture?

Rosie's a permanent work-in-progress.

She could work as a comic strip(I can at least do that one all myself), tv cartoon or feature film. I think I just keep sketching her to put off the actual writing process ;)
