MoCCA Festival 2012

The Museum of Cartoon and Comic Art (MoCCA for short) is going to be having their annual festival this weekend.  It will be April 28-29, Saturday and Sunday, at the 69th Regiment Armory at 69 Lexington Avenue in New York City.

Check out the link for more details.  I’ll be there too.


Sorcerer and Demon


This was a pencil drawing I did in a sketchbook one Halloween.  I forgot about it for quite sometime.  Quite fitting for a Halloween drawing, isn’t it?

Drawing an Eye

Today, I just thought I’d share a neat video with you.  This is from YouTube and is courtesy of the Virtual Instructor.

If you want to learn to draw, you should check out more of the Virtual Instructor’s videos.  His videos are a goldmine of information!

Inspirational Scrapbook

I have a video to share with you today.  One of the ways you can get inspiration for your drawings (i.e. illustrations, paintings, comics, and so on) is to put together an inspirational scrapbook.

You’ll need a scrapbook, which you can buy at many arts and crafts stores, or you can do what I did and make one of your own with a binder and some loose leaf notebook paper.  Collect clippings from newspapers, photos, pictures from books or magazines, packaging, wrappers, and so on.  Using tape or glue, attach those items to your scrapbook pages.

How exactly can this help to inspire you?  When you need an idea or are looking for inspiration, flip through the pages of your inspirational scrapbook.  Who knows?  You might find something that jumpstarts an idea!
