Smoker on Bike

On my way home from lunch today, I saw this sporty lookin' hipster smoking as she coasted down Main I the only one who finds that odd?

I was pretty disappointed in the movie going public, this past weekend, when I read the box office numbers for ParaNorman. I think it brought in 14.1 million, which was about 2 million less than Coraline's opening weekend, and 2-3 million more than Aardmans Pirates. Why stop motion films seem to suffer at the box office is beyond me...
Anyway, I thought it was great...loved the design, loved the animation, the story was, (albeit presented in a fun, supernatural world), very meaty, and topically appropriate for both kids and adults alike.
Laika, once again, creates a stunning world that's both fantastical and yourselves a favour and go watch it. 
To all the artists who worked on it, thank you! I work in animation as well, but early on realized I didn't have the patience for stop takes a special breed to do what you do.

Popeye Doyle sketch

The French Connection was on tv the other day, one of my favorites, so I thought I'd do a quick sketch of Popeye Doyle.

On the Bench

Yesterday, as I was walking the pups, I saw this fellow sitting on a bench in the park with a 2/3 full bottle of Grey Goose. He swiftly arose and bolted for safety from myself and my 45 combined pounds of fur and doggy drool.
