But before we talk about that
I thought we'd take a stroll through the laboratory archives
and dust an older tome of sketchiness off the shelves.
From say perhaps... 1992-1994?
As the title page below states
(quite (overly) dramatically),
this was my tenth sketchbook since I started keeping them in high school.
At this point in my life, I was two years into my animation career and had recently been hired as the first staff artist at the mighty
J.J. Sedelmaier Productions.
Back then I usually had no idea what to draw,
so I drew myself in situations that probably didn't really happen:
I also drew about real-life situations,
like when I dove into a pool and shredded my nose and chin
on the stucco-surfaced bottom,
nearly losing a nipple in the process:
I got a lot of sketch mileage out of that disfigurement.
I DID make other people draw in this sketchbook,
usually folks I ended up doing projects with at JJSP.
Like for instance:
Stuttering John and Gary from the Howard Stern Show:
This sketchbook didn't get done too fast.
In those days I was working some massive hours so I didn't get to doodle all that much.
But a couple years later it got finished:
I liked that sketchbook alot.
I don't always like 'em.
But this one was fun!
