Hello! Welcome to the my sketchblog!
I post sketches, doodles, commission WIPs and occasionally reblog artsy, geeky & nostalgic stuff.

Walt Disney shows off his most cartoony cartoonist, Ward Kimball, in this studio shot from 1949.
For more info on Kimball, check out this mini-documentary made for the Disney Channel. It’s smart and silly — just like Ward!

Planning sketches for a big commission for Wolf-King45 on DA.
Bless her heart, she’s been so patient with me with this commission and I really don’t want to disappoint her!
I would say this is the biggest number of characters I’ve had to put into one image (11 total), but one commission I had before had 12 characters, but this is definitely one of the more complex in terms of planning where the characters will go—I’m really not trying to just showcase the characters, I’m trying to actually create a scene.
I’m going to get some serious work on this commission done tomorrow, as I have another family trip coming up in a few days and I’m not bringing my sketchbooks.  Thankfully, I’m at my dad’s place at the moment, which means I had a little more down-time to work on personal art.

A boring Stray sketch; one of the first pictures to break in my fairly new 9x12” sketchbook—there’s nothing really wrong with it, I just didn’t love it enough to do much with it.
I might put this up for auction or just straight sale, we’ll see…

Might turn this into a logo-ish design later—just a random dalmatian girl, because I wanted an excuse to draw big eyes and big spots.

I bought a notebook the other day, specifically for stress doodles and as a sort of concept/idea book, just something easy enough for me to carry around in my messenger bag, so of course I had to break it in with my favorite love birds (stalker/victim?)—Stray and her dragon beau.
Stray looks very Huskie-esque, with those cutesy (anime-ish?) hand gestures and expression, it’s a little more “kawaii” than I usually draw, but it was still fun.  Don’t ask me why she’s wearing a tutu and a corset, I guess it just fit into the cutesy ensemble? I picture her outfit being very pink…

Big gals FTW!

Brain tells Pinky how he really feels! [original video]

Having met both Doug (and Rob!) and Maurice LaMarche at ConnectiCon (I saw Rob Paulsen, but I didn’t get to meet him), this is the greatest thing I’ve ever seen!  Period.  I don’t think my brain can really comprehend this…

Yep.  There it goes.  My brain just imploded in on itself.

marzgurl:

Doing one great thing won’t make you a great person. Why did you do it? If you did it for your own ego or with other motives in mind, whether other people know about it or not, it makes your act not nearly as great. If you really are a good person, you probably aren’t out there bragging about the…

Wonderful words of advice from Marzgurl herself!!

The “Art of Aurora” Collection - Disney Store 

I’ve been wanting to post about this mini collection for so long, and now I finally can! Out today at the Disney Store. I created artwork, a snow globe and ornament set to help celebrate the upcoming DVD release of Sleeping Beauty. There is a limited edition litho set with two extra pieces of art I created just for this set. Also available are a mug, journal set, jewelry box and jumbo pin that has already sold out! It was a lot of fun being able to play with different art styles and product for this “art of” collection. I will be sharing more of a close up look in the upcoming weeks. But for now, I hope you enjoy this look at the whole collection. :)
