Fun with drawing on computer screens

Straight ahead animation , what else can I say? Has any girl ever puked on YOU? It almost happened to me once, but I've been puked on by a couple of my guy friends, and certainly I've puked on myself, but a girl has yet to, not that I want it to happen.
I puked on my friend Eric's head once while he was driving, then he hit a parked car. Good times.

Canal Bar Napkins

So amidst the move of Flickerlab to it's new digs over on 19th and Broadway, I managed to smuggle the scanner and set it up next to me, thus, more postings. I dropped by Canal bar yesterday eve, with the intention of paying my $25 entry fee for their Superbowl pool and having A beer. Five beers later and after a nice chat with Andy, Melissa and a few others I decided to call it a night. There are a slew of Napkin drawings that you'll never see because I gave them all away, except for this one...... I'm glad everyone was so pleased with my sketches, and thanks for the beer guys!

St. Joseph's Hospital

I haven't posted anything for a while not because I haven't been drawing much, you see, I've been working my butt off on a few things, one of which is this ad for St. Joseph's Cancer Hospital in Maryland. It should be airing starting this week, It was designed and art directed by David Michael Friend, and the spot looks really beautiful.

This is the cleaned up animation on sc #5 (done using flash and the cintiq tablet). Frank Digregorio cleaned up and Inbetweened most of the chars behind the lovely lady in front.
I roughed this whole scene out over the holidays, while everyone was off with family. Luckily we still had some straggling bottles of Frangelico from an Ad we did last year for them. It goes really well with coffee, try it, you'll see.
My inspiration from this scene came from a woman in union sq as she turned around to see who was approaching her (me).
I had planned to go shopping and I'd imagined a woman folding clothes and as she turned around to offer help I'd record her movements, but It never got that far. The lady in the square took care of that.
