The past few days I’ve had the chance to get caught up with my pieces for the weekly Periscope studio sketch blog. The first week was where everyone did a Spider Girl sketch. I posted my Spider Girl in the last entry of this very live blog.
Week two the subject was the Thunderbolts. Here’s my contribution for that.
This is the first time I’ve done anything with half tones. I wanted to make it look just like zipatone. It doesn’t. But it’s close.
Week three’s subject was Miyazaki.
My favorite Miyazaki work is his Nausicaa manga series. I like it because, well because it’s phenomenal. But everything he’s done is phenomenal. What makes Nausicaa my favorite is simple. It’s a comic, and as a comic maker there is so much I can learn from it; and it’s a much bigger story than anything he could tell in a movie. There’s just a lot there to like. But my first Miyazaki love was Kiki’s Delivery Service. Kiki was the first think of his that I saw. It totally amazed me. For me it holds a special place. So, I decided to do a Kiki piece rather than a Nausicaa piece, and here’s how it came out.
Now, go here to the Periscope Studio Tumblr to see all the sketch contributions and so much more.
In other news my best friend, D.J. Bryant, who was the subject of my post two entries ago, has got a brand spanking new Live Journal blog. Check it out at djbcartoon.livejournal.com Friend him, bookmark it, make it your home page, you won’t regret it.
That’s it. Over and out.
…no poetry corner this week. They’re there on the fridge, I just haven’t taken a picture of them yet. Next time.
