Influence Map

Fun thing going around Deviantart right now.
My artistic epiphany took place when I saw Belle dancing with the Beast in that ballroom. I'd always loved Disney, but THAT'S when I knew I wanted to be a Disney artist.
Muppet Babies and Sailor Moon  each inspired several years worth of artsy bollocking around in my younger years. I drew Jill Barklem-esque mice constantly when I was 11. I still have the sketchbooks (eek).
Chris Sanders has continued right where Freddie Moore ended off with his luscious little gals and although I find R Crumb a thoroughly obnoxious human being with some really odious attitudes, I will love his art forever and he inspires me to want to draw a (semi-accurate!) autobiography someday.

Toronto Fanexpo

Another month, another con!

I will be in Toronto for Fanexpo Canada this coming Friday-Sunday. My first Canadian convention, exciting :)
(Suggestions for good watering holes in downtown Toronto welcome!)
As always, I'll be at the BOOM! kids booth where fellow artist Travis Hill and I will be sketch-covering all weekend long on Cars, Muppet Show and (possibly) Toy Story.

In the meantime, here's some new sketch cards playing around with some luscious (bright!) Holbein watercolours.
