Here are some index card doodles.

I think this guy's name is Dr Breakfast:

This is Steve Irwin. We have not forgotten you!

This is my old dog, Mickey:

and some others:

I would love to see, maybe in 10-20 years, a really good steve irwin biopic. Not a funny biopic or a melodramatic one or a ho-hum wannabe crocodile dundee movie, I'm talking about a huge, sprawling, 80s and 90s period film, letting his dynamic character just carry the whole film. Can't you just imagine steve arguing with his wife off-camera after he dangles their baby in front of a crocodile? Moments like those.

In fact, the movie should be exactly like There Will be Blood, except set in australia. Lots of animals. A blonde Daniel Day-lewis plays the crocodile hunter? And lots of khaki.

This is a pie my mom made that I'm putting in chicken cowboy:

My brother actually made a very similar pie and gave me half yesterday. Blueberry apple. God bless brothers and the pies they bake.

Anyhow, here are some more screen grabs. I think if you just string together all the screenshots I've been posting, you'll see the entire cartoon, fully animated. Nah. Just kidding.

My favorite shot is still the pie one.

my pal Nardeep shot some live action stuff today for chicken cowboy. It was a fun little shoot--a whopping 5 or so shots. They'll be used for a brief intro and at another point in the cartoon.

I think they're going to need a little color correction here and there, but nothing too extreme.

Nardeep also told me he's going to be on dr. phil next thursday. We'll all be watching.

Here's another political post. My friend mike pointed out some similarities between these men and some pop-culture icons.

Huckabee and the dramatic prairie dog. Who woulda thunkit?

Anyhow, here are some quick and long poses.
