The 6th Doctor. I used a still from Vengeance on Varos for reference. Yes, he is wearing sensible, tasteful clothes. Not a great scan.

A bout of fisticuffs. I’d forgotten about this sketch!

Herringbone Hugo! Yes, yes… still working to finish Hugo. But since he’s originally a Russ Berrie creation (of the Home Buddies line, and his given name was Sniffy), I figure I might want to tweak his design a little, make it unique, my own, without messing too much with his natural charming personality. Thus the herringbone pattern. And possibly I shall give him a horizontally-striped turtleneck to wear to make him even more graphically distinctive… and keep him warm.

Couple of sketches pertaining to the fairy tale that’s been percolating in my brain for so long. The good news is that I finally discovered a solid beginning that should give it more of a coherent structure. These are only preliminary sketches, but convey the sense of what I want. A child-size old crone gathering twigs and an ancient, hill-like troll.

Paper cut-out animation of a rocket ship blasting off. Extremely basic, but it’s nice to see what it looks like in action!

Just a Sendak-style smiley moon face for y’all. By golly are they fun to draw.

I really want to do a wordless Moon story. Hey! Why ever the heck not?! Tentatatative sketches…

The Jester and his giraffe. Quick ink sketches with some brush-pen shading, which I don’t use often. I should have newer, more finished stuff to post relatively soon. In the meantime…

A quick sketch I did a couple months back for the Heartless Troll. I haven’t had much chance to work on the story, but I may post a snippet of it later…

Some froggy character sketches… each will get the same basic animation treatment as in the previous post.

Leap frog. Very sketchy animation, but it looks like what it’s supposed to! It’ll take a bit of work to clean up, maybe even vectorize…
