Sketch-o-rama: commemorating the recent death of my last sketchbook

It's been a busy several weeks, but here's what I've been up to (amongst other things like school and work).

Some 20 second gestures from around campus.



A meditative tree.

A lonely dude on a bus to nowhere.

Some cool dudes at church.

People in the animation program at BYU (and some made up stuff).

Dudettes blowing kisses to themselves in a headwind.

A dude blowing as though his life depended on it (he was being chased by a shark that was afraid of trumpet sounds).

Dudes who aren't even afraid of sharks.

Ragtime dudes.

And Fergal Reilly, who is the head of story from Sony. He came to visit our school--it was groovy to hear him talk about telling compelling stories. Here he is pictured with some birds that also attended the lecture.

FIRST!! I WIN!!!

The trumpeter is FANTASTIC. Your birds turned out nice, too.

Chelsea Stebar said...

Wow, I totally dig the ragtime dude. But I'm still all sorts of bitter about not getting to see the Sony presentation, even though Fergal kinda looks like Vincent Van Gogh...

Jed said...

I love Fergal's drawing. That's very nice.

Becky said...

Haha - the ragtime dude is just your warm up for Roger, isn't he?

I like BYU caricatures! Those are fun. And the Fergal one too - you caught him. I wish I got to see more of his presentation.

Those trumpets might come in handy... Anthony these are amazing. Heard you're not feeling well, but I hope you get better (and do more awesome "dude on a bus" illustrations).

I must say, a lot of nice stuff lately. I'm a big fan of the rag time guy.

Dudes who aren't afraid of sharks is totally wicket, I really like that you have the heavy ink shadow on the one side, and didn't close in the shape on the other, nicely done.I'll have to keep a eye on your blog. BTW, thanks for stopping by.
