Early Bird

Gets the worm! Ahaha....

So, I was gonna post this drawing a while ago, but forgot to. A comment on my last blog by Will Finn reminded me, so. 'Ere ya go!

His name is Henry, for now. It's kinda a funny story how I made him up. Not "ha-ha" funny, but... "That's almost interesting" funny. Not Jim Carrey funny, but "I found my other sock that I was looking for under my bed" funny.

Speaking of that!! I was at the movie theatre with my friend Theresa the other day, and we saw a movie poster with Jim Carrey on it! He was like, running through a field of flowers all happy, and the title was jus "YES". It looks like it's gonna be a comedy, and that's just exciting. I'm gonna stop getting off subject now.

About how I made the chicken up! Back in... Maybe it was sixth grade (I'm a Junior in highschool now). I was trying to draw my cat. Key word: "trying," because at the same time I was also failing. So I sort of half-erased it and turned it over to the other side to draw something else. I could still see my drawing through the other side of the paper, but now, it magically looked like a chicken. And voila! Henry here was born (Name not neccisarily permanent). Haven't drawn him in years though, but I magically remembered how. He used to have a rooster tail, but then I realized, chicks dont have rooster tails, so.

So now that that's over, back to the movie theatre! Me and Theresa went to see the Dark Night, and it was pretty darn awesome. I think my favorite part was the Joker's pencil magic trick. If you've seen it, you know what I mean. If you haven't, then, I'll tell you what happens. Batman dies and Joker takes over the world. TWICE.

Oh! Also. My friend Lisa might get me the book by Eric Goldberg, "Character Animation Crash Course." Say that three times fast.

But yeah, that's exiting. Hopefully Barnes and Noble doesn't hate me and lets it order right. Though I'm sure once I finally get my hands on it, I'll find it at the bookstore the next day.

So I guess that ends my blog post. Have a good'n! God bless!

Great drawing, and I hope the Goldberg book is good! I can't get hold of a copy in the UK. I'll have to get one imported I guess.

Aw, thanks, Andy! I hope you manage to get a copy for yourself.
