Going through my old portfolio stuff. It's funny, I'd never draw a character like this today. My drawing preferences change day to day depending upon what's influencing me at the time. By the looks of it I had been into Clavin and Hobbes when I drew him.
Maybe I'll give him another go - see how I would approach the design 3 years later.
He reminds me of a thumb.

Ganesh Tattoo...

And here it is (ouchies)I designed this Ganesh tattoo to get at Ottawa fest. Sorta mixed it with a tiki head thing and added an Om symbol to its forehead. Ga·nesh (g-nsh) Pronunciation Key also Ga·ne·sha (-nsh)n. Hinduis.
The god of wisdom and the remover of obstacles, son of Shiva and Parvati, depicted as a short fat man with an elephant's head.

Yami 2...

Razz, a humble orphan searching for his missing father stumbles upon Yami 2. Having no memory of his maker Yami 2 and Razz quickly realize that their past is somehow inexplicably linked. Razz learns to harness the power of his robot by using the mysterious Synbitek Key once belonging to his father. Razz joins forces with Mango Jet, a Synbitek engineering prodigy who helps perfect his battle technique to become the master of the world’s most powerful robot.
The invincible Yami 2, fueled by artificial intelligence and a specialized arsenal of unique weapons. An unstoppable robot who’s potential far surpasses its predecessor. Yami 2’s whereabouts have eluded all who desire to control its ultimate power…until now.

Yami 2 is the ultimate anime parody!
It’s a satirical look at all the things that make anime shows great. Limited human animation with awesome full robot animation, crazy messed up lip sync, insane screaming kids, cross dressing villains and of course endless amounts of panning speed lines! Yami 2's the anime show you won’t be embarrassed to enjoy because it’s got street cred.

Try It, It's Fun...

Highly Recommended: Grab an old design and try it again in a different style.

I remember liking this design when I first did it like 5-6 years ago. I think I was trying for a Simpson's type of thing.
When you put something on the back burner too long you run the risk of coming across stuff you like better and then you can't help but be influenced.
~and by you I mean me~

Monstrocity High Faculty...

Now that the Monster and Human schools have been stitched together the teachers are finding it hard to deal with the shared curriculum.

Mr. Goon, biology teacher, can't seem to stomach the thought of frog dissection while his Human counterpart, Miss Applecrabs, seems to relish the idea of cutting into a Quadrojellian Splat Bug.
Those human's are so creepy.

Integrate This...

Imagine two rival high schools side by side. One for Monsters (left) and one for Humans (right). In a bizarre supernatural earthquake the ground beneath the two schools falls away taking half of each school with it. When the huge crack closes, it slams the two remaining halves of the schools together.
Big Thanks to PQ for the Monstrocity Highschool concepts.

Ottawa International Animation Festival 2006...

Join us for a beer at the OIAF 06 Sept 20-24
(WARNING: We're not actually this handsome)
OIAF 04 - That's us sitting way in the back - not the two friendly gents up front.

I had the pleasure of having a one-on-one chat with Fred Crippen at the Ottawa Animation Festival a couple years ago. I sat with Fred and his wife at a long green picnic table under a white tent and sipped cold draft beer in the side-yard of the Prime Minister's house. It was a beautiful day and we sat and talked for about an hour or so.

Unfortunately, I had no idea who he was, so we mostly talked about the weather.
