We did it! We survived CTN! Here's a pic of myself and Brianne at our booth, taken by the lovely Amy Wagner. Check out the full post on Stuart Ng's blog if you want to see more of the booth and the other artists who were there! Speaking of Stuart Ng, some of our sketchbooks will be on sale on his site very soon, so check back and I will post the direct link. Thank you to all who helped us prepare for the Expo, those who attended and those who supported us via food, buying our goodies or just stopping by.

I have some Muppet themed goodies to post, but I gotta wait a little longer until they go public. Time permitting, I will also have some new felties to post soon. I picked up the needles for the first time since March and it was an amazing feeling to be working with something tangible again. I heard that a few people at CTN-X were sad that I did not have felties on display at my booth this year, but I thought that they were too out of context for an animation expo. Maybe I was wrong!

Thank you guys for looking!

I'm still a full week behind in my class, but I decided that if I was gonna catch up, I was gonna do it right and not rush. My goal is to really put on the pressure and catch up over Thanksgiving, assuming we don't get a doozy of an assignment because of the break.

So anyway, here are *more* explorations for Wizard of Oz, the supporting cast. I have to dive back into Dorothy and Toto to being them closer to where these guys are at but so far I have a few favorites in each spread that I will expand upon.

Are you guys enjoying seeing all this process for a change, rather than just the polished stuff? Sometimes I find that I don't really spend enough time on the sketching phase, even though it's the most fun for me and I just pick one of the first few doodles I make and go with it. Sometimes, the first drawings you make are the best and sometimes not. You don't know if you've pushed it enough until you've pushed it too far. Or something. ;)

Just a quickie, it's National Self Portrait Day! I did this one from 100% photo realistic observation just now! It looks like Peppermint Patty really let herself go.
