and some dr breakfast.

Friday, August 22, 2008

I've been wanting to work on some sort of collaborative extra-curricular project for a long time now--there are more graphic novel collections and art books from studio employees than there ever these days. It left me thinking, "where to start?"

The answer: start small! So here it is. THE TINY SKETCHBOOK PROJECT

Yup. That's it. Purchased from a doll house furniture store, the book is about 20 pages and a little larger than a thumbnail. I've been passing it around here at blue sky. People do tiny sketches in the tiny sketchbook. Like this one by Rafael:

It's sort of like sketchtravel, but on a much smaller scale. And none of that, "auction it off for charity" stuff, because it wouldn't fetch all that much at auction. So I'll be scanning some of the drawings that people have done so far. In fact, the thing's already full. So perhaps this will be a continuing project.

Did anybody see all those tibetan protesters in grand central at 6pm on friday? I did.

was reading some good old raymond chandler on the train. Made me want to be a detective.

There are so many wrinkles in the face of tommy lee jones. it's mesmerizing. like his eyes are set in a series of 50 successively smaller eye sockets.

When I find my camera cord, I will post pictures of yesterday's great gingerbread house disaster. How could I have known they were so difficult to construct?

Work and commuting has been keeping me pretty buy these days. But I'm also trying to make another chicken cowboy short--this time, a micro short. It's about 15 seconds and is pretty straightforward.

here's a shot:

I'll post it on youtube when it's done. Hopefully in a week or so.

wish i had more time to paint. these are just some quickies.

oh yeah! I forgot--Chicken Cowboy is a finalist in the Angelus Student Film Festival! Thanks dudes! Check it out here:

I'm happy. This is the first festival to get back to me. I've been a finalist at Angelus for 3 years running, with Shark Suit in 2007 and Bigfoot's Eulogy in 2006. I know I've really improved since then, so hopefully this is the start of something good. Here's the trailer again:
