Short Round; but More Importantly, A Penguin

Sweet!

My friend and bro-at-work, Don, has been making and painting penguins for about a year and a half or so. Everywhere he goes, he sees penguins; then he meticulously paints them, (sometimes with nothing more than a nail, well, and some paint) and shares them with the world. Here’s one he made for me out of the six-pack packaging from one of my favorite ales, Third Stone Brown, from Empyrean Ales.

See, how it says Bro Tone? What a perfect Screentone tribute. Don, I’m honored.
And I wasn’t going to post this at all, since I hate it, but after showing you the sketch, it wouldn’t be fair to not show you the finished product. Besides, now I don’t have to hate it all alone; you can hate it with me!

Short Round & Quick Time

Last night I attempted to upload a Quick Time video of a very short animated short I made in school, but WordPress wouldn’t let me. I’m going to have to do some more research, it looks like there’s a workaround, but I may not like the compromise.

Anyway, until I figure out the problem, here’s a post-it note sketch of my next Indy fan shirt. I might not produce it, though, since the new movie could answer the very question that the sketch poses.

Maybe I’ll like the result enough, though, that it might work without the text…

I might have a look at the finished version later tonight.

Oh, yeah, before I forget, when I was doodling Short Round, my friend Grant at work suggested I give him bangs, and boy, was he right!
