Wondering what's up with our members as far as their creative happenings are going. What are you up to creatively in your life that you're excited about? Is it what you're doing at work, at school, on your own? Share your news with us.

I'm currently working on some traditional animation for this months contest at the 11 Second Club. It feels great since this is the first chance I've taken to do 2D animation in a few years. It's a wonderful experience to put this much pencil mileage down again.

well, this isn't "creative", but i'm bringing my 16mm answer print of my senior thesis to duart in NY to transfer to digibeta for posterity's sake.

its over 8 years old now, and it kills when i watch it today because the cleanup is so poor and the animation has a ton of hitches hah. good times.

Just waiting for plush toys, wallets, books(thanks to lulu!), shorts, shirts, bubbles and other toys to come in - all for a possible launch in Nov/Dec.

Once in a blue moon I miss the money of freelancing but nothing compares to the daily satisfaction of bringing your own creation to life and sharing it with others.

I'm resurrecting my old comic book and posting a low-resolution version for free online. I also hope to have issue #12 drawn in time for the 2008 Small Press Expo.

And still I feel like I'm not doing enough... [biggrin]

Now that my summer is over and hopefully Fall is under way,(it's finally time to free myself from yardwork!)I will jump back into finishing up the writing of 2 scripts.

I am also going to finish the art for one of my children's books.

Sounds like everyone's having fun. I've completed a significant amount of work on what'll be my second book. With where I'm at, I can project being completed with it perhaps by the end of the year or early '09, with the production run happening by the spring. We shall see.

I suppose one could call doing a blog a creative endeavor.

Will Finn and others convinced me to join the other Bloggers out there. Its been an interesting experiment. I seldom know what I’m going to write about from day to day. Maybe, not knowing is the fun part.

I’ve also been knocking out a gag a day. Don’t know how long I can keep that up. Anyway, like most gag cartoonists I never know what the next gag is going to be. It just pops into my head. Sometimes at the last minute.

That’s what makes creativity so cool. You can’t really define it -- or control it. It just happens.

Animating TV stuff during the day, which, depending on the day can be- or can't possibly be- creatively rewarding.

When the sun goes down, I'm Art Directing an animated short for the Beverly Hills Chihuahua DVD (which is why I'm up right now at 3 in the morning).

I do lots of creative experimenting in Photoshop with the Cintiq- sometimes abstract, sometimes realistic, sometimes with no idea whatsoever.. just exploring new directions. Usually I end up with something I didn't plan.

I also like to bring my digital camera along with me when I go driving around and I take pictures of whatever..... color combinations, vintage design, retro California architecture, funny things, beautiful things, ugly things, surviving california black plate cars, urban and industrial decay, abstraction, photojournalism, whatever.... I guess I know it when I see it.

I'm playing around more with drawing anime figures, in anime proportions, or not.

I'm kicking against many years of being told, instructed, specified, and harangued so many times to keep realistically drawing figures in realistic proportions, with realistic faces, realistically real..real sketches, really detailed.. keep it real..Draw the fingernails too...

.Aggh. Enough!

I'm getting too old to keep bothering with all that from fellow artistes and

So I draw what I want, how I want it to look.
I ain't drawing anymore fingernails; let the devil take the hindmost.

If I take your money, then you get it your way.
When I draw what I want, I do it my way.
Short, skinny, tall, fat, round, bony...I like my way better. [Wink]

So that's what I'm doing. Probably due to my 2nd childhood...LOL [Big Grin]
