Saw Godzilla Saturday night. Even though I could tell it was a good movie, I didn’t really like it that much. I realized that I just don’t like disaster movies. I care more about character interaction than big action. Give me Pride and Prejudice over Transformers any day.
Sketch I did at the doctor’s office this morning. #mikelaughead #sketch
It’s been hard to get back into the groove of just drawing stuff. But here’s something.
Because I’m a jerk sometimes, I draw on student’s scratch paper/sketchbooks when they leave class.
For this one I drew a Dragonsona of Chris Passabet.
Been watching a lot of Adventure Time lately. Drew these warm-up drawings this weekend.

Sketch for a freelance job. I just really liked it.

I didn’t get to see all of “A Cat in Paris” but it looked pretty sweet.

Star Wars: Episode IV “A New Hope” Sketches.

I now regret coloring Chewbacca green.

Drawings from “Catch Me If You Can”

I’m teaching Adobe Illustrator’s pen tool in my class today. This is the sketch that they will trace for the in class assignment.
The drawing is a simplified version of Robot, a character from some easy-reader books I illustrated a few years ago.
When I taught the Cafe Sketch class this summer, we had some weather issues and were forced to draw from videos and movies inside occasionally. These drawings were from a stunt-dog video that one of the students showed.

Sketches from the movie, “Willow”.

The summer I was going into 5th grade, I was obsessed with this movie. It was basically my live-action Lord of the Rings movie before a decent live-action Lord of the Rings movie was made.

I still love so much from this. My favorite lines: “Out of the way, PECK!” and “You ARE great!”

Another unused sketch from the dream job.
For those who want to know, the job is illustrating some monster characters for a kids card game. Pretty much my dream come true.

Sketches from the Buster Keaton movie, “Three Ages”

I really like numbers 13, 14, 15 and 52.
