Late Sketch

Listened to Beyond the Sea by Bobby Darin, one of my all time favorite songs and then made this. Now it is late. Here's to sweet dreams of distant places.

Goats

I was going to post something, but now I can't remember what it was. Oh well... I'll post these strange pictures I found buried in my iMac's hard drive instead. A few months ago I did these sketches of a crime fighting miniature goat who had incredible powers, thanks to the experiments of a bumbling professor.



They were fun, but I think the following video is way better than the drawings! Have you ever heard of a "fainting goat?"



I particularly like the bleating sound added every time a goat topples. My favorite is the goat near the end of the video. He seems to pass out from excitement right before catching up to his friends. You can buy one of these little guys off the internet - "Guaranteed to go down!" Amazing!

Going Back

Things have been really crazy lately, and I haven't had much time for blogging. I thought I might show some old work of mine... really old work. (Click on the small sample to see the full image)

Do any of you remember the cartoon Dino Riders that aired in the 80's? I must have done this when I was five or six. I had my drawing desk next to my dad's and I would crank out these epic battle scenes on paper. It's pretty obvious that I wasn't too concerned with composition back then.



Here's one from high school - the love for dinosaurs undying. I've stepped up a notch from Dino Riders to Jurassic Park. Intense. Get it in gear Muldoon! Get it in gear!






The drawing to the left inspired this post. Joe made a comment on the last entry that reminded me of reading the novel Shane when I was thirteen or fourteen. There were a few more sketches of this brawl that were a little off. I think I misunderstood the description of the fight since the drawings looked more like interpretive dance gone terribly wrong.



And now ladies and gentlemen, the pièce de résistance! A pencil rendering of that master of evil, Darth Vader! You must be shaking in your boots right now.

I did this for a 4th grade book report. Seeing it now I wonder why I kept going.

Welp... that's a glimpse into my past. Hope your having a wonderful weekend and enjoying the beginning of Summer!
