The Man from E.G.G.

A place to put my time-wasting doodles, based upon the exercises outlined in the "How To Draw Animated Cartoons" book by Preston Blair.

Kris 'n' Victor

This is a rough series of sketches to try to map out an idea I've been playing with.

I was thinking of coming up with some li'l boy and girl comic characters. Their names are Kris & Victor. Their Mommy and Daddy are Mr. and Mrs. Church. My thought is to illustrate simple Sunday School lessons.

Why do we pray? What do the Ten Commandments mean? Stuff like that.

My long layoff from seriously trying to cartoon has really hurt my sense of construction and posing. I have still not mastered how to draw hands!

If I can get off the dime with this concept, I think this would be a rewarding (and fun) project. My life-long problem with cartooning has been that, while I like to draw, I don't know what to do with it!

(Note: The characters' names are a play on the name of the church we attend: Christus Victor Lutheran Church. Get it? Kris & Victor Church! Um...)

Oh, yeah! I mentioned "Spunkies" in the previous post. I'll explain later.
