Sometimes, I get to make weird cartoons for work! These are probably the most… polarizing? thing I make. The people that like em, really like em! everybody else just rolls their eyes. But they do a pretty good job of breaking up an event, and making sure that people don’t take themselves too seriously. AND! New this year, the cartoons actually had a point! HA! This hasn’t always been the case. Usually, I just try to make as many poop jokes and puns as I can, as fast as I can. Why? Well, when the event is called “the plunge”, it’s a no-brainer to have a plunger as a mascot. Anyways, give em’ a watch if you’d like!
This is MY dog. Currently drugged out of her mind as her mouth heals up from what turned out to be a pretty extensive tooth extraction. She’s sleepy, but she’s a pretty sleepy dog anyways. She has to eat soft food for a bit, which i’m pretty sure is like eating candy to her, so all in all I think she’s enjoying her recovery. It’s the dog equivalent of getting to eat ice-cream when you get your tonsils out.
With my Christmas/birthday money, I bought a small Wacom intuos drawing tablet, sort of the modern equivalent of the old bamboo tablet I started digitally drawing with back in 2009. I bought it out of nostalgia, and because our “family desk/desktop” is perfect for casual doodling (which is probably better then mindlessly wading through reddit).
This is the first thing i’ve made with the small intuos that i’m posting. It’s kind of like looking at something I would of drawn six years ago.
It’s convenient to draw with, but that’s about it. The much larger intuos5 I have is much more responsive and intuitive, and the Surface Pro is still my all-time favorite digital drawing apparatus. Its crazy how much the tools you use change the product you create when creating art digitally, and I’m sure traditional medium artists would agree.
