Day 4: Skaramoosh... I sing the Fandango

Okay, this is what happens when you don't read the fine print. Jason challenges me to a Drawing a Day for Life and I agree?? Am I nuts?! That means the only way to get out of this is for me jump in front of a bus barrelling down Jan Smuts Avenue (wait, have they renamed that one yet?... I lose track). Oh well, here goes... today's skribble. I fear this whole thing might turn into "Who of us can draw weirder stuff"?

Oh, and here's what Pedro in an earlier comment referred to -- I sketched up a version of a wild insane comic character he created, called Devil Cow.

Also, here's a peek at an animation project I'm currently working on for Mindpool Productions, to be used in a SABC kid's education show called Just Chill... had lots of fun creating this little Pig character called "Crackling"... who interacts with the Elephant in the picture -- they are used for little animated links between shows.

Here's a sample of one of the animated backgrounds into which the announcers heads get blue-screened and added to the top of the cartoon characters that then perform a series of looped actions, so they can be shown talking as long or short a time necessary... this one obviously a theater scene -- note Crackling in attendance and the Elephant Cupid which flies by occasionally on his rope...

Crackling the Pig must be the most hilarious name for a cartoon character... ever!

And the one eyed girl, one wonders if she saves on mascara?

Til tomorrow then...En garde!

Nice. So far so good with the challenge. What would be REALLY awesome is if you used the Devil Cow in the SABC production. I gaurantee you more kids would watch it.
