Really late trip to Anchorage means I didn’t really think about drawing today. So here’s just a quick five-minute sketch of some Alaskan trees. I will be back to cartooning tomorrow, I’m pretty sure. 🙂
I think for the next week or so I am just going to try and copy some of the drawings in the retro cartoon book that I have. I’m also going to move to a table after this. Until now I’ve just been holding the sketchpad in my hands, and I think I might do a little better if I … Read More
I thought if I drew 100 circles I would get really good at it. But I just got bored really fast and switched to ovals. And got bored with that. So then I just doodled. I’m pretty sure that tomorrow all of my artistic talent will burst forth in full bloom. Pretty sure.
I just decided to play around with some cartoon eyes tonight. I finally got a copy of the retro cartoon book that I had been missing for the last two or three eons, and I’m going to start going through that. Also, as suggested by Lesley, I’m going to be drawing a bunch of circles and ovals starting tomorrow. Of course, … Read More
Walking by the hospital the other day I saw these 5-petaled flowers and thought, “I should try to draw one.” Wish I had taken a picture or at least stopped walking long enough to really look at them. But if you stand back and squint at this picture, that’s what they looked like.
I skipped the pen step tonight because I wanted to get this uploaded before midnight. It might behoove me to start earlier in the day and not wait until 11:30 at night.

In fact, instead of drawing a picture a day, I should modify that to something like draw for 30 minutes a day, culminating in a picture. Anyway, here is today’s picture and this time I played around using crosshatching for shading. I think I’ll poke … Read More
If I hadn’t committed to posting a drawing every day, I wouldn’t put this up here. I’m unhappy with it. So, why don’t I just toss it and try again? Because that would feel like cheating. 🙂 I bought a book a while back about drawing retro cartoon characters, and then proceeded to misplace the book. But I used the … Read More
I hear people say all the time, “I want to be a game developer! What do I need to do?” My answer is always the same — if you want to be a game developer, make a game! You don’t need permission from anybody, and the information on how to do it is out there. And don’t worry if your … Read More
For my English 212 class I had to create a Product Analysis Report. I decided to do something based on a question I get almost weekly: Unity or Corona SDK? Those of you who know me best might find yourself flabbergasted at my conclusion (please don’t hate me!)… Engines and Frameworks for 2D Game Development — PDF
