THE SKETCHBOOK THAT WOULDN'T DIE


So like,
WHAT WAS THIS 
SKETCHBOOK'S 
PROBLEM?
(aside from the Air Jordan/Heisenberg sticker mash-up)


It took 
FOREVER 
to get through this thing.

It started on
November 5th, 2013


And
FINALLY
ended on
April 6th, 2014

I usually can get through a
sketchbook in 3 months or so.
But this one dragged.
Mainly because I was working on a couple
sooper secret pitch books,
an illustration for
and
other stuffs.

And a huge portion of this book is filled 
with some character design 
I'm working on for a show idea.
Not sure it'll go anywhere,
but you never know.

But to be honest...
this was one of those volumes that 
I just wasn't feeling.

Sometimes you think you're 
drawing is moving forward.
Other times you're staring at a blank page 
and everything you put down just feels
BLAH.

Sooper pal
Kano 
says that if you put stickers 
on a sketchbook before drawing in it,
it's bound to suck.
But I feel the opposite.
You can't start a book until you've got 
it stickered.

And I stickered this one first,
but still...

meh

Regardless,
you fight your way through 
and draw stuff like
map-wielding dwarves:


You go to the premiere of


And
you
draw
draw 
draw:


























And then one day 
you're done:


And you move on to the next one!

Hey Mr. Warburton, are some of the sketches you just posted(i.e. the bearded samurai, the wet teen with the shark jet pack, and the tuxedo-wearing swordsman who looks like a cross between you, Father from KND, Sanji from One Piece, and Super Saiyan Goku from Dragon Ball Z) that same new show idea you just mentioned? I know you're fan of DBZ, One Piece, and even Hayao Miyazaki, which may explain the subtle anime influence of the designs, so I guess your next show will be subtlety anime-influenced as well?
