My post-college plans

I made this comic as part of a thank you card for graduation gifts. I was going through the stuff on my comuter that thought i'd post it here.
Thankfully i was fortunate enough to find a job with relative ease. Disney actually called me the day of my graduation :)

It doesn't grow on trees.

Jen's been playing Twilight princess lately, and i've been spectating.
I've never actually played a Zelda game before, but i've learned one thing watching Jen play: There's a lot of grass that keeps growing back, and sometimes it has money in it.

Sketchbook fun!
A rough pen sketch all dressed up in photoshop...

...and some cats & dogs. I saw some special about shepharding a while back. I'm thinking about drawing some sheepdogs.

Horse sense

I couldn't get to sleep the other night, and for some reason all i really wanted to do was draw horses.
I don't care who you are, horses are damned tricky to draw.
One of these things is not a horse.

Disney apprenticeship starts in two weeks!
I got sick last week, so i'm glad i got that out of the way.

And just for kicks, some sketchbook stuff!

(that chicks left foot is totally broken. but that's what's cool about sketchbook doodles is they're allowed to have mistakes :) )

Update! Cat Update!

Well, it's been a dry summer, both in terms of moisture and art. My Disney 'apprenticeship' (now re-named "talent developement program") has been pushed back a third and hopefully final time to Sept. 4th, so i'm still waiting around.
Went to ComiCon and that was great! I finally bought a Claire Wendling book. I've been putting it off for fear that having a tome of that caliber of talent around would give me some sort of inferiority complex, but instead it's been quite inspiring. One thing that Wendling does really well is she can see the structure under what she's drawing and that really informs her designs and poses. Good gesture is important, but good structure is something that i've started to lose sight of. So i've been drawing my room mate's cats. They're pretty lazy around mid-day so they make decent targets.
(the scan is pretty bad, but then again my scanner is pretty bad, and since i don't have a job, well... at this point my birthday will come around before my first paycheck, so we'll see what happens.)

I'm also trying to come up with a decent idea for some comics. Comicon reminded me what i loved about the format in the first place. I used to make comics all the time because i didn't stop to think about whether my ideas were stupid or not. Now i come up with ideas and i don't do anything with them because they're all stupid and lack substance. I'm pretty sure doing nothing at all is worse than doing something that's stupid, so i'm trying to work something out :)
