Sorry for the delay in posts, guys! Thesis work has weighed me down, but I’ve made some breakthroughs and real progress lately. Hurray!
Two weeks ago Kriota Willberg came to the Center for Cartoon Studies to teach an intensive two-day workshop on anatomy, aging, weight gain and deformity (posture problems, etc.) geared towards cartoonists to help us understand human bodies and create stronger characters. Her lectures were fascinating and I loved drawing the figure again, and she scared the crap out of all of us about staying fit and healthy (and what it looks like over time when you don’t!). Here is a quick look at what we did: our cumulative assignment was to draw a character nude, the skeleton, the muscles, weight gain (or loss), and the character older (or younger). Look at the effects of age and gravity– yikes! I will post more figure work this week.
