COOL DRAWINGS, VERY LIVELY AND VERY VERY GOOD, YOU'D MAKE A GREAT ART TEACHER, AND THESE ARE ACTUALLY VERY PROFFESIONAL AND GOOD CHARACTERS, SORT OF REMINDS ME OF THE FOX AND THE CROW, BUT SLIGHTLY BETTER IMHO.

the Big Apple.

Your designs and strong draftsmenship as well as color style and pose have always inspired me.But I looked alittle closer at this batch and I see the pure joy and fun and love that you have for all your creations.And if Im not reading this wrong,your enjoyment of the journey.The top drawing reminds me of the sceane in the bar of the W.C.Fields movie ThE BANK DICK.

Thanks Anon. and Tony! You're right, Tony, I did have fun drawing these. By the way, I need to see that Fields movie...or ANY movie with him in it!

These are all great, but I'm really loving that second drawing! It's like seeing Jack Kirby dynamics applied to funny animal cartooning!
Would I be correct in guessing that the bottom one (yelling) is cleaned up and colored in Illustrator?

MARK CHRISTIANSEN said...

Thanks, Mark! You're correct about that last piece being finished up in Illustrator. And thanks to that tutorial video you sent me, it went a lot faster this time around!

Man, your drawings always show such nostalgia and fun in design. The fox and pig duo can clearly be seen popping out of an old 50's comic book =)

MARK CHRISTIANSEN said...

Thanks, Chris! I'm glad that you're enjoying the designs.
