Proper scan coming later. This piece, "Under The Influences", is for the Gallery Nucleus show based on Saturday morning cartoons of days gone by called "After These Messages...". A lot of great artists will be there displaying homages to their favorite animated characters, and hopefully you'll be able to pick up prints of this at the show. When I thought about what to draw, I couldn't pick just one character so I decided to draw all of them.
For those interested, here's a list of the shows I drew from going right to left (sort of): poochie, popples, strawberry shortcake, rose petal place, peter pan and the pirates, snorks, my little pony, care bears, alvin and the chipmunks/the chippettes, miracle girls, the muppet babies, shampoo and ryoga from ranma 1/2, paddington bear, the wuzzles, rainbow brite, that cheesy zelda cartoon, magical fairy persia (my first ever anime, age 8!), tiny toons, and more ranma 1/2. I'm missing quite a few series, but it would've messed up the composition. Drawing all these characters, I realized how much they added to my visual vocabulary. It also made me realize how much television I watched when I was little, and made me wonder what the psychological effects were, if any. Well I'm a cartoonist now so I guess that's saying somethin'...
Anyway, the opening is on Feb. 10th from 7-11pm. Hope to see some of you there! Tomorrow I get to scan chapter 4, make shabu shabu for Svet and Dee (visiting from far off places!), and have a lovely girly slumber party with the two of them. Can't wait! =)
