Tuesday Night Drawing


Here's my Tuesday night drawing. I'm up in the bay area for the rest of the week, but my brother has a scanner hooked up to his computer so I'm able to post.

I've wanted to do a gorilla for a while now as a "hello" to Ellis, so here it is!

Happy Tuesday, folks! There's no story behind this thing, it's just a weird thing that came to mind. I would like to take this opportunity to plug my version of Skribl's cool comic strip- http://thraxisjr.blogspot.com/ - which can be found at: http://rickart.blogspot.com/

The first Jam!



Okay, here's the Rules: Who ever wants to contribute to the drawing next needs to say so on the comment page of this post. Then that person saves this picture on their hard drive, makes their contribution and then makes a new post and uploads the new image. Then the next person comments on that post and so on. Do not post a "dibs" comment unless you have the time to do it immediately, so as to not make someone else wait around till you get to it. If you don't have the means to draw directly into the image from your computer, print out the drawing, draw on it and scan it back in. Sound good?
Have at it!

Ellis Here. I broke the rules. I just dropped my art in with no check out. I was just ready to go. I can see problems with doing that but hopefully i get away with it this time.

In Case any of you missed it in Wizard magazine, an article about another TAG member. Ed Brubaker. In the article he is certainly given ample opportunity to mention TAG in connection to his drug taking nadir but doesn't.

a blog of note...

Here's a blog with a bunch of interviews with different character designers:
http://characterdesign.blogspot.com/
I haven't had much of a chance to read the interviews, but a skimming of the art makes it a must-go-to site.

It also has a bunch of very nice looking sketchbooks for sale:

R0B0T0P!A

So I also have a personal blog and it' s only a week old. I added a link to the right there. See? In the links section?? See? See?

It was spun off of another blog started by a couple of guys at work . See StoryBoredom on the right? See? See?

I started doing a daily strip (which is explained in both blogs) to get me drawing again. And it's working. I really look forward to doing it and it only takes a 20-30 minutes to draw and upload. Lots of fun and not alot of mental anguish time. You know, that little voice in your head that tells you that it's not good and to start over??

Click on over and tell me what you think??

Here's my Tuesday drawing! It's of a character from a novel I recently completed called "Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrel". I liked the book a lot... this image is Norrel.

Unearthing Tag

Dok Whitson here - glad to join the throng. Delighted that Jeff got this going! Hope I'm doing it right (thanks Tom Moon if so). This drawing was done this morning, so it's got that quality if no other!

My other BLOG

I'm going to try and load this Blog up with a lot of art, mainly digital painting. It needs editing because I was dabbling and communicating with my Mom about how easy Blogging was while it was giving me headaches.

http://moldbreaker.blogspot.com/

Yesterday I started using my new MiniMac as the way I get online. No more virus worries. YEAH!
....except I can't make a web address a link the way i could with my PC. I right click and get the option to make a link, I publish it, and it's not a link. Oh well. you'll have to cut and paste.

Let's Try Another

Hello to MJM, Scotty Buncake, Krayonzilla, and Podboy. I don't think we have met. I am a video games artist and comic book collector.

MJM, I have heard your name mentioned often. I'm a children's book collector. I have many works by the likes of Michael Hague, Leo and Dianne Dillon, Anthony Browne, Roy Gerard, P.J. Lynch and many others. I went to both your web sites. You do beautiful work.

Ellis, good to hear from you. How have you been? I love your web site too.

Picture Test


O.K. Now I will try posting a picture. I was not a member of the original TAG group, though I wish I had been. Since I know over half of you from BlueSky Games, I thought I would join in and meet the rest of you. I'm currently working on Everquest 2 at Sony Online and looking for a reason to keep sketching regularly.

OK, Thanks Jeff. I get it now


I was trying to get pictures into my post by clicking on the "BlogIt" button at the top of the page. Jeff directed me to sign in on the home page of Blogspot, navigate to "new post" for TAG's blog and then I can find the buttons I need. I dig it . It's great to see that foto of all of us when some of us were kids. Thanks for posting that.
The above is Sgt Scorpion. Done for some soldier in Iraq who advertised for a cartoonist on AWN.

For anyone interested , I have a HUGE PDF of doodles. 109 pages! It takes about 2 minutes to load with a DSL connection. It is titled IDLE HANDS because it represents all the idling I did in my last job. Every one of those doodles was done during the work day. I think I owe somebody a paycheck or two.
