DEAD BLOG

Welcome to my dead blog! Yes, the once-living blog that I used to update at least once a week with happy cartoon fun is now a MySpace-esque wasteland of forgotten internet assortments. This is all in part due to myself being one of two things: too busy with work/interviews for new jobs/making videos/just going out and being social, and too lazy to just sit down and update this thing.

But while I have been drawing, it's all been secret stuff that I cannot share at this time. Most of these secret drawings are all for a huge, HUGE project coming soon that is top secret right now. I think the only thing I can show from that is possibly this:


Perhaps even that gives too much away. And two other little drawings have been kept a secret up until right now. Allow me to present them... now!


HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOLLY!!!



HAPPY BIRTHDAY ZACH!!!



Zach's birthday was the 15th, and Molly's is today! So if you haven't yet wished either of them a happy one, go do it!! GO!


For those who don't know yet, I recently bought a new car!! Her name is Phoebe, the little blue 2010 Ford Mustang. She is ACTUALLY this bright of a blue! So vintage-y and cooool.


I'm not afraid to say this about my drawing: a million times cuter and more appealing than anything from Pixar's CARS, am I right?

Playing around with this in Photoshop afterwards, I thought it looked cool when I got rid of the outlines and played with the shading a little.. Kind of looked more 50's style, maybe ever Mary Blair-esque, which is pretty much the initial design I was going for in the first place. Phoebe is very Susie the Little Blue Coupe in her own right.



That's about all for now! If you're still actually following this blog after such a long time that it has been neglected by me, you have my utmost surprise and thanks. And I guess if you actually want to follow me and see what my life is like beyond cartoons, my Tumblr is right here.

Y'know. If you're into that sort of thing. Bye!

THANK YOU

Shot a couple of weeks ago, this short video screened at the Loft Cinemas this past Friday night and we got a pretty big audience attendance. Plus they loved it! We received a super enthusiastic and great response, so thanks to everyone for coming out and supporting us. Now that it has debuted on a theater screen I figure it'd be good to post online for the rest of you fine folks to watch.

Made by yours truly, Alex Italics and Mariella Morton. Enjoy!
