uh huh uh huh uh huh


This song has been stuck in my head for two days straight. I drew this hoping to purge it, but ... really, why did I think that would work? My mind is a minefield of horror.

Waiting for spring.

It doesn't happen often - like a lot of other people, I can be incredibly self-critical - but I am actually
really, really pleased with this one. I got these flowers for Valentine's Day; seeing them makes me hope that spring is around the corner.

Seriously, it's so gloomy out. Can it please be spring now?

Practice, practice.

Lately, in the name of self-betterment (with the aid of excessive amounts of free time and also awesome friends), I have been doing a number of new things, while also devoting more attention to old things upon which I must improve. Below, you will find:

1. Gale's foray into Inking Wit
h a Brush, also to be known as Inking in a Color that Isn't Black, also to be known as Hey Is That a Background:

2. A small portion of a storyboard. Lo! A storyboard! It's been a while, so this was a great exercise. I might have to go back and do everything over, though - I recently had the opportunity to listen to Dreamworks' Steve Hickner talk about storyboards, and it was one of those experiences that was both incredible and incredibly depressing.

3. Edit: Overtime! Some guy watching the Olympics. Man, that is a rockin' pad.

Out and about!

Some places I've been recently! Had a surprise encounter with an SVA grad at Panera Bread (pictured just below), who gave me some very helpful advice about networking and storyboards. I have learned an important lesson about the benefits of taking my sketchbook outside the apartment. Also pictured: the laundromat (orly?) and poker night.

Why am I not playing, you might ask? Well, I lost pretty early on. I have a terrible puh-puh-puh-poker face.


Also, a bonus look at a piece I'm working on! He is part of a set, and I'm having way too much fun with it.

Return of the hourly comics!

Comics for every hour I was awake on February first. While these might not be as interesting as last year's (which involved the Superbowl and homework, gasp!), they are distinctly more legible!

Also, happy Groundhog Day!
