You ever get overwhelmed sitting at the old drawing table with all of your supplies and a blank art board staring you in the face?
You want to know what I do ?
Well, I’m going to tell you anyway.
I try to get back to basics. I grab a few sheets of printer paper and a No. 2 pencil, sit on the couch and sketch. It doesn’t matter what I draw because my son will scribble all over it anyway. And that’s the point! Just drawing for the sake of drawing. No deadlines, no perfectionism, no worries!
Give it a try!
An old project has reared it’s intrusive head. About a million years ago, I enrolled in The Kubert School’s Comic Penciling Course and never even turned in my first project.
Well, I contacted them and I’m back in the class! It’s been so long that I need to redraw the entire page to reflect my skills (or lack thereof) now.
Here’s the original, unfinished page.
Wish me luck!
Well, that was interesting.
It was my first time at the Surly Girl for stand-up. All new material and I was really looking forward to it. It was a really small room and filled with 26 other comedians. No audience! Hardly a laugh in the whole place for anyone! It was tough to do my set in crippling silence but I did it anyway. Had a great time!
Going back on March 7th.
Comedy time!!! I’ll be at Surly Girl Saloon for Open-Mic on Wednesday, February 22, 2012.
Be there or don’t!
