The Simpsons Spoof the Mad Men intro

I'm a big fan of the Mad Men show and when I saw this spoof of the Mad Men intro done by the Simpsons, I had to share it!
Happy Halloween to everyone!

Here's a quick sketch of Batman I did last night. Used F Tombo pencil for the line work on Strathmore tracing paper, highlighted with White Prismacolor pencil. Scanned this piece with a cardboard background. Colored the piece using Photoshop.
He seems a bit old, but I really had fun with the line work. I wanted to just go with a funky looking Batman. Hopefully, it worked. What do you think?
I will be teaching class tonight over at Gnomon. I have invited Naomi Baker to come by my class to talk to the kids. All I have to say is she's an awesome concept artist and she's only going to get better as the years go on. Feel free to check out her blog....let me know what you all think?
Catch you all later and have a safe and fun Halloween weekend!

Sarris Head inked

Here's the Sarris head shot, inked using a Winsor Newton series 7 Watercolor brush size 0 and with a Copic pen size .03/.05. I did this as an inking demo for my class last night.
When I get a chance next week, I'll lay in some colors.
I'm really happy with the designs the kids are coming up with for this class project. Some of them are stressing a bit with their other classes but I feel they'll do fine in the end. Looking forward to how the designs will develop further.
I gave them an in-class assignment, based on an old freelance assignment that I did sometime ago for Nick. I gave them the whole class time to design the two main characters and one supporting character. I do have to say that they came up with some interesting characters. They're a great bunch of kids! But I'll crack the whip if I need to.

A sketch of a character I have done for a new series I am developing with BooBooKittyFuck. Done in pencils (HB) and used cool grey Tria markers on Canson water color paper (140lb).
Off to teach class tonight. :)

Here's a pencil drawing of Sarris, from the movie Galaxy Quest. I did this as a demo for my class last Thursday. even though this design is my take...I do like the Stan Winston design used for the movie. Hopefully, I'll get a chance to of these days.
I've been pretty busy lately. I've taken a lot of freelance work in the past week and half...I'm hoping I didn't bite more that I can chew. But sometimes I do have a hard time saying "no" to clients that have call me up that I like working with. I don't man to do this...but I can't help it. I do have to learn to say "No". Well, let me know what you all think of the design.

Here's a head drawing of Sarris the main bad guy for the Galaxy Quest project I did as a demo for my class. I took this drawing and lightboxed it and did a more simple version and another one with more details...just to show the different ways one can take one design (drawing) and push it to go different directions. It's good practice for them to do this in the future to speed up the creative process a bit. I'll be posting more up later on.

More Sketches...

Hey all, just wanted to upload my latest sketches that I have done for my class, for the Galaxy Quest project and also sketches of Batman.
I do have to say that I am really happy with what the students in my class are producing so far. I have a talented group of kids. Just need to make sure to crack the whip on them to make sure they don't go off course. I'm really looking forward with what they'll be bringing in next week!
