Whenever I begin apologizing for not posting more frequently by using the excuse that I have been busy, I can feel you rolling your eyes. Particularly those of you that know just how "action packed" my life really is. This time though, it's true. Both personally and professionally, I have a lot of stuff on my plate.
For one thing, the kids are out of school for the Summer. This really doesn't impact my time that much, as the kids are both teens and pretty self sufficient. Mostly all it involves is going into their rooms around noon or so, and checking their pulses to make sure they are just sleeping and haven't passed away during the night. They are underfoot though, which is a distraction.
Another iron on the fire is my NEW blog! Yes, even though I can barely keep up with this one, I will be launching a new site in the upcoming weeks. The new blog, though, will be more of a portfolio page. A site to send editors and art directors who are interested in seeing my work. (This will be cheaper than starting a website.) This site will be mostly free of my witty comments, but will be chock full of samples of my work for you to ogle. I am still trying to think of a clever name for this blog, so if anyone out there has a suggestion, please let me know in the comments section. If I use your idea, I'll even send you a drawing! Hint: "Hackorama.blogpot.com", "Crappyartwork.blogspot.com"and "cavalcadeofcrud.blogspot.com" are already taken, I think.
As for the title of today's blog, next time, I will share with you wanna-be cartoonists out there some tips on how to draw that most difficult of subjects, Horses, courtesy of Walter Lantz & Co.
See you then...
UPDATE 7/2/09- Sorry I haven't posted the "How to Draw a Horse" from the Walter Lantz book yet. I have to make sure I don't violate any copyrights when I do it. I don't think there is a problem, but better safe than sorry. As soon as I get a thumbs up, I'll post the pages.
