My very own piece of cartoon history!
I'm sure you've noticed I've been on a bit of a Tiny Toons kick lately since rediscovering a cache of my old artwork from the days of Tiny Me Adventures. 
One of the things I most desired then, and now, was an actual animation cel from the show.  In fact, now that digital and computer-aided animation rules the earth (and trust me, I'm not complaining since that's my actual profession!) the idea of owning an actual, hand-painted production cel was even more desirable.  
So, a few days after my birthday and flush with gift cards I decided to invest in making that lifelong dream a reality!  I spoke to a number of animation art dealers who were all incredibly helpful and kind, but I settled on First Animation Art. They had a great selection of TTA production art and, more importantly, quite a number of very nice Fifi pieces!  Moreover, Wanda was SO HELPFUL and patient as I drilled down to exactly what wanted

I know I dont post on here that often. Quite frankly, I always forget I even have an account.

Well that and I haven't drawn too much lately. But enough excuses!

Whenever I do draw, it tends to just be small sketches or tiny comics while I'm at work (now that I think of it, I only seem to draw when I'm at work). But I've felt myself wanting to get back into the game and try new things. I've come up with list after list of ideas to help expand my skill and try different techniques. But honestly, I cant see them doing much to improve my skill since (majority of the lists were just of people whose art I should mimic as a tribute to them). Sure it would be nice to create an image that uses the watercolor stylings of Bill Waterson, or the pudgy, Hodge-Podge style of Berke Breathed (whose comic collections I discovered in my families bathroom long before I could read). But how is that pushing my boundaries? 

I've been thinking alot about styles and techniques I want to learn and try. Among the list are getting backing into painting, better work with acrylics, learn watercolors, actually learn how to use Photoshop and use its features to my advantage, and animation.

Its no secret that I'm a huge animation freak. Both my brother Jake and I watch a varied assortment of shows and shorts together and we both have been wanting to get into animation (though last I checked, that was his career path he's chosen). Me, I've been toying with ideas for what I want to work on. An idea thats come back to me time and time again is a series on youtube that teaches you history. No, not the boring stuff you had to memorize back when you were in school. This history is stuff that either gets glanced over, isnt even mentioned, or just plain old forgotten. We can go on and on about famous events of World War Two, and we can talk about Kennedy's assassination. But what do you know of Project MKULTRA? Or how about what H.H. Holmes and the Worlds Columbian Exposition have to do with each other?

I've a deep love of history. Growing up in an old victorian era home, my parents immersed me with antiques. I learned about my towns history, what era the homes were built, and so on. I grew to love history. But something I grew to resent was that the historical topics that interested me were the ones that schools never taught. Any subject I'd be even remotely interested in was brushed past or hardly covered. Todays history lessons are generic, cookie-cutter pieces. And there are so many more interesting events that have happened that need discussion TODAY, but no one knows of them. 

Look, I'd absolutely LOVE to say that I'm announcing this history series right now. But I know how I announce shit and they never come to fruition. I've proven that I'm terrible at following through time and time again. But it is something that I'm toying with. Will it see the light of day? Perhaps. Will it be shelved? Most likely. But it is something I'm working on. It is more or less a dream of mine that I want to get out there. I want to educate the world in my own way. But will it happen? 

Time will tell. 

Ok. This was supposed to be thought provoking journal (and a well needed update) but it turned into me just kind of drunk rambling. I dont know if this will mean anything to you. But its just whats been on my mind alot lately. I'll never be truly away from creating. I'm always writing or drawing something in my spare time. I just hope that what I make will eventually find its way to you.
