Mindless work is for the birds...


...I'd rather get paid to draw pretty pictures any day!

I am an artist, dammit!!! (insert image of me sulking with a black shirt and French beret) I am not a computer technician, factory drone, or programed robot! (See Robokopf and you'll understand. While you're there, check out Gothbot, too. Priceless.)

After slavishly paying my dues digitally painting Barbie hair, frame by boring frame, it's nice to get a gig where my mind and imagination (gasp!) are being called upon for work. I'm having a blast coming up with background sketches for the kid's show I'm working on. Here's an example above. It's a rough version that will be finalized later in the computer. Birds' wings really work like that you know...

J-
I am so jealous! I wish I were doing something I enjoyed, working rockstar hours and getting paid for it all.

Well, got to get back to my mindless robot job...

Thanks, laughwhore!

The only thing about doing what you like all day, is that USUALLY you can't get PAID for it! Haha...

I hope to find a way to live solely off my doodles!

i like also your pencil drawings but , hey , how is it possible that in the States most of illustrators are attracted by this cartoon style of the '50?
