I got some new acrylic inks last week, and took them out to see what they could do (or rather what I could do with them). Some successes and some not-so-successes later, here we are.
And still growing.

Some Simple Math

Given the fact that I haven't done math in an academic sense for well over a decade now, this calculation may be slightly inaccurate...but I think the principle is correct.

I don't know what to tell Allison.

School and Sketches

Some sketches from the beginning of school. Mostly, I animate all day...sometimes I go to other classes. When that happens, I draw people--you know, to stay loose for animating.
With any luck I'll be able to put up some stuff from the film I'm working on soon. For now, on to the sketches! Hope you enjoy!

Ben Jensen is a super stud (see above).
Some dudette from a class I'm in.

When I doodle in Japanese class, sometimes I try different things like this below. Perhaps this is because I'm paying more attention to the analysis of syntax and morphology, which takes my mind off the technical aspects of drawing and allows my brush to wander. Anyway, I thought this one was pretty fun.

Also, I found an acorn today. It had a cool shell thingy too. Below, I've attempted to diagram the acorn cycle (like the water cycle, but only with acorns). PS, if you're wondering why the girl below has too many eyes, it's because I messed up, but I still liked the drawring...which is okay. sometimes we mess up.
