Bicycling fauna for me

I’m going to lead a weekly Recumbent Ride for the local Prairie Cycle Club, so I drew some things for it:

Bicyclin' Bison

Bicyclin’ Bison

Bicyclin' Deer (the white-tailed deer is the state animal of Illinois)

Bicyclin’ Deer (the white-tailed deer is the state animal of Illinois)

Here’s the resultant flyer:

A Hundred Dollar Drawing. In spite of my No Caricatures rule, I knew this was a gift for Parker Higgins, hence the resemblance. Also the ©’s are backwards because he’s more of a copyLEFT hipster.

“Happy Family” for Josh

This Hundred Dollar Drawing was requested by my brother. His own Happy Family will have to figure out who everyone is, ’cause I sure can’t. I’m also not sure about the dog. Is s/he happily dreaming of eating all of them?

Lexula and Cryonysus

Above: Lexula, Goddess of Scrabble. Her right hand dispenses letter tiles – randomly, because she is blindfolded. Her left hand wields the CrosSword.

Below: Cryonysus, God of Whiney Man-Babies.

Neither of these are technicallyHundred Dollar Drawings, since I drew them for myself during a slow period. But they are of that genre, so I’m including them in the series.

Susan’s “Entlebucher Bounding”

A Hundred Dollar Flipbook for Susan, except I didn’t do it as a flipbook, I did it all on one sheet:

And then I took out frame #6 because it didn’t look right. Here’s the same cycle larger:

Tiny Cat Run

This is mostly copied from the sample running cat in Richard William’s Animator’s Survival Kit book, minus frame 6 (below), which looked weird in the cycle.

More Tinymation: Stomping Grapes

I said I was gonna draw tinier, and I did:

Yeah these are tiny little guys all right. Or gals, who can tell at that size?

Tinymation

I really like the spontaneity, freshness, and non-computery-ness of drawing tiny on paper. Lately I’ve been drawing little flipbooks, but even this “Ganesha Marimba” looks suspiciously like a conventional pencil test, in spite of being only a couple inches wide and drawn in ballpoint pen. So I upped my game and drew even smaller:

This is easier than drawing flipbooks because I can see everything at the same time, rather than only the one drawing previous. And it’s tiny! So full of lovely mistakes and life.

Next I plan to draw even tinier!
