sorry about the delay

I haven't been doing as much sketching lately, I've been sorely lacking inspiration but hopefully I'll come out of it soon. Anyway, all I can remember about this page is that the guy on the bottom left was my attempt at doing some type of Garbage Pail Kids looking guy. I think.
I found this awesome book of old carnival illustrations and so tried to draw a few of the woodcuts and lithographs from it. Like usual, I gave up and let my mind wander and came up with the rest of what's on the page.
For some reason I was in the mood to draw people in period costumes, so there ya go.
The critters on the bottom part of the right page were designs for a Munny I finally completed. If I can ever find my digital camera I'll post pictures of it.

I have to see that Munny!

Egads...your creatures blow my mind. I love how you have recurring themes: melty blobs, tree people, crotchety old men...

If you ever do an animated short and need a background artist, let me know.

By the way...I'm working on a new post...

mar said...

Great characters, it looks very spontaneous and planned ate the same time. Perfect combination
Sorry if I can´t make myself clear, english isn´t my language. It´s clear that I really like your artwork though.

Hey Justin, thanks again for your comments, I always can't wait to read what you have to say. I may have to consider your offer to do backgrounds for an animated short, your work is too good for me NOT to think about it. Good to hear you're working on a new post, can't wait to see what brilliance you have next!

If I could write better in english I could tell you more about your creatures. But, at this moment, I think you're a "character machine"..Geniuos!
Regards

How old were you when you started drawing and how old are you now?

David DeGrand said...

I started drawing cartoons around age 11 or 12, and I'm 27 now. It's taken me a long time to learn how to draw demented tree people and melting snowmen!
