New Year's Baby Stories for Old People

Baby story #1.

My brother recently moved into a new apartment. He went to the Seattle Ikea, and said there was a wee child pushing a cart. The wee child was transporting a load in his pants while pushing a cart and there was no way around him. My brother was forced to walk slowly behind the small child. Now he has artwork for his new apartment. I hope it goes in the bathroom.

Baby story #2. (ha ha.... #2....)
Last night, this wee little one was in the seat behind me. He had three other brothers, none that had volume control. His parents were with them, and I know it must be hard to raise alot of boys at once, but the parents had no noise control either. This drawing isn't exaggerated enough.
He was shrieking "PURPLE!", "CRACKAHS!", and many other words for the two hour flight. Other passengers had the stewardess bring ear plugs. Drawing the monster baby was better for me. I've never been on a flight were people clapped when they got off. The weird part of the story was that Chris Kattan was sitting one seat away from me on the flight. I didn't realize it was him until my friend picked me up from the airport and said "Hey, that's Chris Kattan." Maybe he will use this demon baby in a future skit. I hope so, that family was insane.

Baby Story #3.
A baby I know is turning one tonight! She is a good baby too! Happy Birthday Sweet Pea! Don't marry these babies in the future!

Christmas Eve in Bunny Town

It is that time of the year, again, where one gets to travel through airports hopeful that eventually they'll make it to their destination. Most of the time, the flight from Seatac to the eastside of the state gets cancelled, and I get to live there until someone picks me up. But not this year! This year will be different!
Hooray for little brothers getting jobs in Seattle! YAY!!
Here are some pre Christmas photos, and some photos from my work. OOoo animation mysteries....

Here is "Randy the Hip Hop Bear". I saw him at the Mervyn's store in Burbank. He is horrible.

Camera phone is poopy. It will be replaced soon.

My brain broke itself.

I'm going to have the stuff I am supposed to be doing finished soon, promise. My work got extended a few more weeks, which is good for me at least.

If you hate anime, maybe don't bother clicking on the links.
Video Time
(Thanks to Jeff Chuang for letting me know about this.)
People have been compiling animation made by specific artists and uploading them to youtube. People have been IDing scenes with their Disney and Warner animators for years. I just thought it was interesting that there are compilations of some of the
Gainax/Ghibli/Madhouse/etc. animators. Search for "MAD", and that will bring up tons of stuff, although not all of the videos seem to be specific to one animator.
There is alot of kicking and punching.

"Namco X Capcom" op by Production I.G.
I think the guy above might have directed this, but I can't find any confirmation of that.

You Yoshinari reel
Tetsuya Nishio reel

...and here is some stuff that's just cool.
Skateboard + Balloons
Persian Kitten Army
"Merbabies" is creepy, and cute. I used to watch it alot.
"Pick up all the trash, put it in the bag, BUMP! BUMP!"

Little random post-its from the last few weeks. Drawing hasn't been working lately, these crude little warm ups help a little.
(fixed: Weird they were showing up for a couple of days and blogger somehow lost them.)

Turkey Warrior

Thursday is Thanksgiving here in the USA. It is a day we give thanks. Thankful that we can be with friends and family, eat to much food, and go to sleep at 4pm. We are even more thankful, because when the pilgrims first settled here, they had to fight a great war against giant turkeys. Lucky for us they won. It was hard, but if some of the pilgrims hadn't been able to tame and domesticate some of the turkeys, all would have been lost. Since that time, it was discovered the turkeys were quite delicious, so we don't use them in turkey jousts anymore. Here are some videos reenacting some of the turkey battles.
The Battle of Gravy Boat Lake
Turkeys can be dangerous!

The End.
I went to a Q and A screening of "Ratatouille" the other night. This quote was funny:
"Brad Bird with Pixar is like playing "Doom" in God Mode."

Please help save the chickens of Othello, WA

My hometown is in a video competition to get an MRI machine for the hospital. They don't have one. One comes every Thursday on a truck, if you need a scan any other day, you can drive an hour to the next nearest hospital. This time of year can be bad, roads get shut down and make it hard to travel. The people in the video work at the same hospital my Mom works. Check out the site, there are alot of other small town hospitals in the competition. Please vote! You can vote once a day from the same computer. Scroll down to find the video.

Here are some chickens. Save the chickens. Get my town a real MRI machine.

"Almost Halloweenie" or "Orange U Glad U Can Fly?"

Yay! It's almost time for Halloween!
Boo! Everything is on fire and the sky is dirty!

To get in the mood for Halloween, there are two creepy art shows this weekend.
The Lisa Frank reject is for a show at the "It's a Grind" coffee shop in Diamond Bar this Saturday. 'Cause beatnik zombies like their brains caffeinated.

The other art show is in Culver City, Oct. 26th, at the"Wonderful World Art Gallery".
Artsy sisters Miss Mindy and CJ Metzger will have stuffs there, and there are supposed to be some original "Nightmare Before Christmas" storyboards on display there too.

I am going to miss both shows, I am too sleepy and I'm going to see a "Cirque De Soliel" show for the first time this weekend. YAY!
There is a Pooetry Contest over at Burgerlog. If you want to win an exclusive one of a kind Anna Poo, you have until Oct. 31st to submit pooetry. I am a pooetry judge, since I know alot about shit.

It is a busy week, but super fun. Animating, coloring, turning stuff, playing with fancy shmancy computers, eating frozen yogurt! It's even better working on stuff with friends! Woot! And I have family visiting!
Secret link! A coworker sent this to me.

Squeam. It's Monday.

Squeam is a little annoying creature that was living in my apartment recently. I was lucky enough to get some candid photos of him, before he was disposed by Skippy. Here he is!
  • Now I can sleep at night, since the screaming has stopped.

    Here are some oooold post it drawings, sketchbook cover, and viking inspired by a Dove chocolate wrapper. Yay.

    She has giant man hands.

    "Believe in me who believes in you!"

    Busy as always. Time to draw, no time to scan. I won't be busy in December.

    No more bad fan art after this, promise!
    "Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann" just finished in Japan. It is really good. Hopefully the dvd's are released here soon. The robot is drawn way to small, wonky. Robots are hard to draw!
    Watching this stuff is really inspiring.
    Hopefully more stuff will start up here soon.
    Ahh pooooooop.

    ***Thanks for all the nice comments lately, I read them, I just suck with keeping up with anything outside of hygiene and work lately.***
    What the hell is this?!!! PURE CRACK!!

    She was designed by Yoshiyuki Sadamoto.

    Popcorn hamster piano yay!

    It's "Talk Like a Pirate Day", but here is something that has nothing to do with Pirates!

    Upside down hamster eating popcorn on a piano!

    **The actual video would be here, but youtube destroys my template. Even if I resize the video. >:( Weird.

    Here is my block for the quilt Amy Wolfram is making. The theme is superheros so I drew a random super villian. The top one is fabric paint, the scanner made the colors super weird, but they were weird already. I am messy. Boooo....
    "Cheshire" is owned by a giant company. Not me.

    Return from the Land of Monsters

    ....or the land of busy Bree.

    Sorry, haven't been around last few weeks. Currently catching up with old email this week. Been SUPER busy with work, freelance, and stuff that can't be posted. Have come to the conclusion that I can't really go more than a couple of days without sleep like in college. Stomach flu has been going around at work, haven't caught it yet, but had a nasty cold, and sneezed all over alot of people, Skippy, and guinea pigs.
    So the last couple of days of free time I was trying to draw monsters. Somehow it turned into a group of people living in a land of monsters, and apparantly there is some sort of drama. And a little monster with a backwards baseball cap. I guess doodling isn't much different than a kid playing with their toys making up stories. Ahiru/Duck (girl with the reddish braid) is from "Princess Tutu". I drew her first 'cause I was seeing if I could draw her on model, but her hands are jacked up,her head is way too big, and her legs need to be straighter. Almost just drew over her, but it was too fun coloring everything. Ramble ramble ramble...

    Back to monsters...

    A bunch of my friends have had babies recently. Congrats on the newest baby boy! Another friend's baby is turning one this weekend, congrats to you too baby. Make sure to drink lots of milk with those edible crayons.
    All of the babies I know are cute and happy. They are not greasy babies. The greasy babies were drawn during a phone conversation with a friend, and the topic was "everyone is having a baby!".

    Hey, this is what my computer has been doing to me lately. Is it a graphic card problem? Everything else works fine, and it's not like this all the time. It goes away after twenty minutes or so. Poor Dell is five years old. I have been cheating on him with my manly Cintiq at work. Poor guy.

    Things that are going on:
    Fusion Junction 2 art show at Robocon in Chinatown, LA this Saturday.
    New kids book out. I might be working with the publisher on something, if I don't screw it up. <:P

    Mrs. Leprechaun

    Snow Lady VS. the Last Ninja

    ...and the winner is.......Snow Lady!
    Silly ninjas, they did not factor in that they were fighting in an all white snow field, and they are dressed in black. They could not hide from the crazy yuki_onna.

    This is for "The Ninja Show #2", Aug. 11, 6pm-11pm. It's due today, yeah, nothing like turning something in last minute. Yippie for busy/anxiety. It's really hard to think of something to do with ninjas, it feels like everything has been done already. Maybe it is burnout. So I took the easy way out. Eh. The paper is buckled, that's why there are some weird dark blotches on the scan.

    My friend the Boogervampire and her boifran painted a guitar! I think it's pretty cool! It's going to be at the show too. Guitars are cool.

    Time for bed.

    You got 400 xp, -300 gp, -1000hp, zombified!

    Other than being attacked by a small Naruto child with a packet of mustard in the hallway, and the insane crowds, I actually had alot of fun. I met alot of nice people, phenomenal artists, and just enjoyed being somewhere other than LA. Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who gave me signings and doodles, I wish I could scan them all in. My brain is currently regenerating, but I think it was worth it. Sorry to anyone I missed, it was so huge, and people weren't always at their booths, but you have to go to the bathroom and shower sometime. So, GOOD JOB! Anyways...
    Here are the photos of Comic Con 2007, that have nothing to do with comics, but alot of toys and stuff that doesn't make sense to anyone.
    The Pop Culture Con

    I went and saw "The Labyrinth" Monday night, and then picked a friend up from the airport tonight. We went to dinner and I draw. brain is still not working.

    ****Happy Berfday Poopface. Here is a video for u. What you missed this weekend.

    Mass exodus of NERDS

    If Wonky Batgirl was going to the San Diego Comic Con, what would she bring in her utility belt??

    A tomato, for when she goes to panels. She can throw them at people who ask stupid questions about why A character won't hook up with B character. She can also throw the tomatos at exclusive screenings of stuff she has decided will suck, even though she actually hasn't seen any footage yet and the crew is working long hours and putting their heart and soul into it. YAY!!

    See above for baseball bat.

    If you are stinky, she will be lurking in the shadows, with soap in hand.

    For cleanliness, hydration, and to help move people faster through lines.

    Strong enough for her and for nerds. Probably a sport fragrance.

    Good teeth promote good health for all involved!


    Other than that, for anybody going, have fun!!


    I am learning flash at work. Here is the first animation in years, no thumbnails, no direction, so poopy. But it is really exciting learning new stuff. I LOVE animation!!!
    dumb dance of crap
