FLYING SUPER-SPECTACULAR

This drawing was influenced by Neal Adam’s art for the cover of DC 100 Page Super-Spectacular 13/Superman 252. I didn’t have the comic in front of my when doing this drawing. I’ll have to finish it at some point.

TINA'S WET DREAM

This drawing was commissioned by Jen Coyle when she was directing on Bob’s Burgers. It was meant to be an illustration by Tina  herself for one of her Erotic Fiction journal entries. It was tricky to try and draw badly (as a 13 year old would draw) yet make an attractive drawing at the same time. I don’t think it was used, the reason given being that the zombies were too threatening in their decomposition.

A RANDOM GATHERING

This is a doodle of a random group of people standing around. The woman striding toward camera looks like she has something on her mind. This was drawn with a felt tip pen. I drew in on January 25, 1995. After 21 years the ink is starting to spread into the back of the photocopy I sketch on.

DREAM ILLUSTRATION

I drew this in the morning of March 25, 1994. It's an image from a dream I'd just woken from. I write down the dream.

This is a sketch from August 2013. Female soccer players. Drawn with ball point or possibly felt tip (we'll have to see how the ink spreads over time) pen.

RICHARD RAYNIS BACKGROUND DESIGNS FOR “KID VIDEO”(Part Two)

RICHARD RAYNIS BACKGROUND DESIGNS FOR “KID VIDEO”(Part Two)


These are a series of background designs done by Richard Raynis who you may know of as a producer on many TV series, most notably “The Simpsons” and “King of the Hill”.  He did these drawings for “Kid Video”, at DIC Entertainment, in 1984. I had just started a DIC as a freelance, then staff storyboarding artist, and was assigned to help Richard out on the series. This was early in my career, so I was very impressed with the skill and imagination of his drawings. I told Richard that he could be working at Disney (Feature; there was no Disney TV at this early date). I was nonplussed, even flabbergasted, when he informed me that he chose NOT to work at Disney, preferring the greater creative freedom that he had working for the notorious chop shop that was DIC. Luckily, or skillfully (or both) Richard was, if not in 1985 then in the next year or so, in charge of DIC’s prestige unit, helming season 1 of “The Real Ghostbusters”, “Alf”, and “AlfTails”, all of which I was proud to work on as a staff storyboard artist.
