I NEVER POST HERE NO MORE!


Not much happens around this blog anymore.

Not as much happens in my sketchbook as I'd like, either.

I mean,
this latest tome of sketchiness took 
OVER A YEAR
to complete!

Sure, I can make excuses that I'm sooper crazy busy on
Disney Junior's
MUPPET BABIES
and assorted other 
fun
(secret)
stuff.

But come on.
I gotta fill these books quicker.

This one started 
April 16, 2018
and finished in a production meeting on
May 11, 2019.

As always,
the cover had a fun sticker mash-up:

ANIMAL
and 
ONE PUNCH MAN!


The title page started kind of sharky:







While I'm doodling in meetings,
Super Director Guy Moore is usually peeking over my shoulder 
and drawing his own 
(better)
versions on my doodles.

For instance,
this is mine:


And this is his:
(along with some other awesome drawings)


Again,
mine...


And his:


Me:


Guy:


This was a series of pages that started as vines
 that grew across the
next bunch of pages:





















And once done,
up it went into the vault of old sketchbooks!


Now let's see if I can finish the next one in less than a year!

THE VILLAINOUS/KND CROSSOVER


Are you craving
MORE
Codename: Kids Next Door?

I mean,
it's been a long time since a new episode came out.

And it'll probably be a
REALLY
REALLY 
REALLY
REEEEEEEEEALLY
long time before one does.
If
EVER!

But in the meantime,
there's the
VILLAINOUS VILLAIN 
ORIENTATION
CODENAME: KIDS NEXT DOOR 
EPISODE!


Whaaaaaaaaat?!

Allow me to explain.

There's a Cartoon Network
Latin America 
web series  
called
created by
the sooper powerful

It's a show about a group of inept
 sooper villains
called the
Black Hat Org and a lot of people
LOVE IT!

Well, it turns out that Alan and his team at
A.I. Animation Studios 
are big KND fans and wanted to do a crossover episode with them.
(their Villain orientation videos had already crossed with a 
number of Cartoon Network shows 
like Samurai Jack, Powerpuff Girls and Adventure Time.)

So they gave me a call to run some ideas by me and make sure 
what they were doing worked within the
KND universe.


They were all 
very smart,
very talented,
and
very big
KND nerds!

I couldn't help but be on board.
We had a great time talking
and afterwards I sent
them some drawings to say 
THANKS!


But enough of my blathering.
Why dontcha check out the episode?

Spoiler alert:
Hope you speak Spanish!

SKETCHBOOKS GET DONE FASTER THAN BLOG POSTS THESE DAYS


In case you haven't noticed,
I'm not posting here much.
It's all about the lunch bags these days.

But I'm still filling up 
sketchbooks
(albeit slooooowly)

This one started 
August 5th, 2017
with a
Sooper
Saiyan
Beaker
sticker
mash-up:


And the title page
features my 
Les Paul
for no other reason
than 
just because...



Here's the sketch that got it started:


And then there's the usual
nonsense:



Mighty 
voice actor
Eric Bauza
(voice of Fozzie)
needed to show that not only can do 
voices better than me...
he can 
DRAW
better than me:






My son Parker drew this while we were out one day.
So I stole it.






I had Jenny Slate 
(the voice of Miss Nanny)
sign the book after recording some songs with
sooper Muppet Babies composer
Andy Bean




I love swiping post-it doodles from around the office and
sticking them in a sketchbook:


That's a sooper director Guy Moore
post-it down there:


This was the magnet on all the doors 
on the Social Media Moms Disney Cruise 
I presented Muppet Babies at.
If I still did blog posts,
that would have been an 
AWESOME 
one:


A good portion of this sketchbook is taken up with 
double-page drawings I did at the two 
Muppet Babies Writing Summits 
we hosted.
For two days we sat with a variety of awesome writers and 
brainstormed story ideas for Muppet Babies.
SO FUN!













After the premiere of
Muppet Babies the crew went out for
food and drink so I passed the sketchbook around.
There's some 
Stan Ruiz,
Matt Danner,
Jina Noh,
and John Won
in there,
amongst others.



And then on 
April 11th, 2018 
this one was done:


And I'm off to the next sketchbook!

I hope you're still drawing in yours!
