Bison






A Bison skeleton drawn from life at the Auckland Museum, then a bunch of sketches I referenced from photos (trying to cartoon them up a bit), and lastly an unreferenced self portrait of myself drawing on the Cintiq that I did on the Cintiq at work.

I stumbled across a completely amazing 21 year old artist yesterday named Rebecca Sugar. Her style is both lively and spontaneous and technically accomplished, and she's also a most talented writer! This is evidenced in her quirky and affecting 12 page comic Don't Cry For Me, I'm Already Dead and her ongoing series Pug Davis. One is a short story about two brothers that love to quote the simpsons, and the other chronicles the epic space adventures of the mighty dog-person-thing Pug Davis and his camp sidekick Blouse. To top it all off she is a wonderful animator, and has a couple of pieces of her work up on her Youtube channel. You best be clicking those links!
