Here’s installment #4, of my countdown/celebration of the return of Harvey Girls Forever! to Netflix, this Friday May 10th!
Today’s Post-It drawings are a pencil drawing of the Bow, and Tiny dressed up as Frankenstein.
Unlike the other drawings I’ve been posting, this drawing of the Bow seemed like it should stay in pencil. It seemed to give it a bit of the feeling of an engraving somehow, or an Edward Gorey drawing.
And Tiny, always wanting to be taller, is of course wearing a Frankenstein costume. Specifically, it’s based on Dick Briefer’s comedic take that he did for a bit back in the Golden Age of comics. I didn’t mess up the drawing on the mask; that’s how he drew the nose, way up high like that! I kind of talked a bit about Briefer’s Frankenstein here.
That’s it for these Post-It drawings. If things go according to plan, I should be able to post some of my board revision work from Harvey Girls Forever! tomorrow at some point.
Welcome back to our countdown/celebration! Harvey Girls Forever! starts a new season this Friday, May 10th, on Netflix! I’ve been putting up Post-It drawings I did during breaks, while I was on the show.
Two for you today! Audrey as Furiosa, and Tiny as Shaft.
Audrey was always fun to draw on the show. It took me no time at all to figure out who she was: that kid who was totally impulsive and energetic, fun to be around…and probably would get you into some trouble. But you’d sure have fun while doing it!
And Tiny was a lot of fun too, for different reasons. He was the kid who was a little smaller than everyone else, and couldn’t wait to be big. Despite his size though, he already had a big heart. Seemed like fun to have him cosplaying as Shaft (though most likely his parents wouldn’t have let him see that movie yet).
Tune in tomorrow for another installment!
Welcome back to my little countdown/celebration of the return of Harvey Girls Forever!, returning to Netflix this Friday, May 10th!
Here’s another Post-It drawing, done during a break on the show. As I mentioned yesterday, Post-It drawings like this are a fun way of taking ideas that lodge themselves in your brain and clearing them out by getting them on paper.
This time it’s the Bow! The Bow was always something of a crew favorite. I guess it was something to do with the fact she’s the type of person who marches to her own beat, and doesn’t care what anyone else thinks.
Regular visitors to my site might recall that I’ve done a play on the OBEY stickers before, but the Bow sort of seemed to loan herself to this too.
Thanks for tuning in! More to come tomorrow.
So coming up this Friday, May 10th, Netflix debuts the next season of Harvey Street Kids, now re-titled Harvey Girls Forever! By way of celebrating/counting down, I thought it might be fun to post some of the Post-It drawings I did of some of the characters during breaks.
It’s been awhile since I put up any Post-It drawings. I’ve probably felt too compelled to have to always put up finished work here. Post-It drawings like this used to be a lot more common sight when animation studios still worked on paper. It’s not as common now, but our storyboard revisions crew had something of a wall of Post-It drawings like this going while we were on the show. Kind of a fun way to get goofy ideas out of your head by getting them onto paper.
Just Dot today. If you’ve watched the show, the idea of her cosplaying as Spock makes a lot of sense.
Stay tuned! More to come tomorrow.
Okay, I probably need to explain about this one. To do that, I need to get into a little of the “behind the scenes” workings of WordPress.
A few months back, I decided it would be a good thing to have some kind of a hit counter for my site, running in the background. The beauty of WordPress is that there’s likely a Plugin you can install for just about any purpose. I wanted a Plugin that would give me an idea of how many hits my site was getting, where people were coming from, what they were looking at, etc. It’s been fascinating to watch this info accumulate as time goes by. In some cases, it’s been surprising to see what posts and images get more hits than others. And one thing that’s turned up is that the Care Bears images on my site have been pretty popular.
So, I’m no dummy; it made sense to perhaps generate one more. I revisited a Post-it drawing I did as a goof back when I was working on “Care Bears,” polishing it up in Adobe Illustrator. Some of you will recognize this as a play on Shepard Fairey’s OBEY Giant image, featuring the late wrestler André the Giant done up propaganda poster style. Perhaps it’s a bit of an oblique gag to play off that iconic imagery with a Care Bear, but have you ever had one of those visual ideas that get stuck in your head and won’t go away unless you get them out on paper? You other artists out there know what I’m talking about.
So here you are, for whatever it’s worth. And for those who wonder which Bear this is, I figure it’s probably Grumpy. Because he’s cool like that.
Just moving in to the new place here, figuring out where to put stuff. Hopefully, it won’t take me too long. Bear with me while I try to get this sorted out.
Why the image? Well, it’s just a couple days after Halloween, and I think this would look too boring without a little visual interest. Plus it gives me an opportunity to try to learn how to work all the various handles, nozzles and gear shifts around here.
