Two By Two

So my buddy Vlad just uploaded his student film "C-Block" to his blog and it got me thinking... why haven't I done that yet? So here it is. My student film from my graduating year out of the Sheridan Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning (breeaaath*) BAA - Animation program of 2008.

Bringing in the New

Yeah, I came up with the original concept of this one a while ago... I'd say around last April or so.

I did these riding on the subway with my buddy Randeep on our way to some T.I.F.F. 2009 screenings.

I did these waiting with my Grandma and Grandpa at the hospital a couple of weeks ago.

Ok so, like I mentioned a few weeks ago my backpack and sketchbooks got stolen... bummer... but I have since gotten a new one of each and I am alive again. Huzzah! So it is filling up quick, but a lot of it has to be kept on the "DL" (down low) for a little while, just until Randeep and I figure out a the final story direction we choose to take with the film we're working on. That should take to about this Friday. BUT, until then here are some sketches I did recently on the Toronto Subway, at A Hospital, and an other I just remembered from one of my old sketchbooks. It kinda stands out.

Smash and Grab

Sooo... my Band Van got busted into the other day and my backpack got stolen. It was, as the cops say, a 'smash and grab' job. So guess what was in that back pack? My sketchbooks. Awesome. Well I hope the dude who took them appreciates them.

I'll have new stuff coming probably with a better and more complete rendition of the story of that nights events.

See you later... and don't leave valuables in plain sight in your car when parking downtown.

The Soap Family: Bro's and... ugh... Female Bros

Ok so it's been a while... again.
I did these two drawings a while ago but just never got around to posting them. They were inspired by a film I saw on Youtube one day called "Bro Rape". They went into some detail on what typically classifies one as a "bro". It turns out they tend to be people I don't have a great desire to be like. So with that short film still fresh in my mind, I found myself waiting for the rest of my band to show up to a gig we were playing here in Toronto, so I began to sketch out my impression of the quintessential "bro". A few days after completing that sketch, I decided that it's not fair to reserve the class of "ignorant, loud, horny, moron" to simply the male gender... even though we tend to excel at it. No, there must be a female equivalent. Enter the "chick".

I thought back to my days at Sheridan. If there was a place "chicks" resided in droves, it would be there. So after some careful meditation and planning, I proceeded to draw, what I felt, was the seminal version of what is to be called "the chick"... Or to be put more simply, the female "bro".

Now I don't want to say that everyone is a bro or a chick. I'm sure that if you read through the notes on the side of the pages you'll find a couple elements that would describe parts of your daily presentation to the world. Don't worry. Bro-ness or, for the fairer of the species, Chick-ness, is not one element here or there, but rather a collaboration of elements, assembled together to create a solid state of duche-baggery. To be made simply, if you regularly assemble (or even worse, put together an ensemble only on special occasions) with three or more of the articles listed in the images above, you are most likely a bro/chick... and I'm sorry but that includes, belly button rings (a recent addition though not listed above), and all other articles of clothing/accessory listed above that may be more of a permanent fixture.

And that makes me and many others sad... I'm sorry. But there is always help.

Love and Apartments - A whole Mix of Emotions

This was a sketch I did on the subway one day on my way to York University to meet my brother. I was listening to the Beatles and this is kinda what came out. I just had fun with it. And that's the best part about a sketch book.

Well now I'm off to try and find an apartment. I've been looking for a little while but not too seriously. However, like all important life changing moments in my life, I left it until the last minute. I kinda' need to get one by the end of the week or I'm a bit out of luck. It's hard when all my friends already have a roommate, or have moved away doing it on your own sucks... and I know for many of you that's just how it is. But don't tell me you enjoyed it the first time you did it, because I know you're lying.

I'm stressing out. I hate change, and even though I'm getting better at it, it still sucks growing up. You hear that kids? Don't grow up, it's better that way. I think I need to go lie down and listen to some Beatles and relax... after I take care of some business first... I guess.

Super Pig and Cheese

These are a couple I did a while ago. Even before the Santa one. I was animating a mouse over the summer (it was actually supposed to be a shrew but... whatever) and this was one of the first drawings I did of it. It changed a lot over time. I tried to hone in more on the 'shrew-ness'. I liked this one so I posted it up.

The one on top was just a 'Super Pig' doodle on the GO Train on my ride home from House of Cool. Will it lead to a potential story? Maybe... we'll see. For now, it's just funny.

Mery Christmas!

Ok... so maybe this one's coming a bit late. But, better late then never. I have some sketches from my sketch book I'm going to post over the next little while. This one was drawn before Christmas... and because it's a bit more seasonal, I figured it should post it first. Okay, I hope you like it.
