|WHY I OUGHTA...!|
The battle between Hulk and Wolverine is nearly as old as the adamatium clawed kanuk and the big green palooka themselves. What happens when two comic book titans, who's notable traits are variable levels of invincibility, brute strength and badass-ish-ness? It's a melee match of epic proportions!! So as a tribute and a follow up to a previous post I give you Schnickity!!! Snoo!

|Quoth the Raven: "Whachootalkinbout?"|

One of the more very laid back and interesting celebrity meet and greet experiences I've had. If you're Australian the name "Leunig" is something familiar, iconic or at the very least recognisable, if you've glanced at a newspaper in the last 50 years. Michael Leunig is not only a cartoonist but a poet, writer and philosopher too plus one of my earliest influences to become a cartoonist myself. So to have him speak at an admission free, live interview conversation about his life, work and philosophy one bright warm Saturday morning a few suburbs over from my place was kind of awesome.
His cartoons were made into a series of short vignettes using stop motion animation, and they're are just as evocative as the source material.
In this he described his process, there's no real planing, no under sketch, just emotion that can be tweaked with the simplest of a line. The expression in the character above could be so easily manipulated
Though I couldn't stay for the question time after the intermission I got this photo of us together, the old master and the grown up fanboy.
|Me with the con (conversation) sketch.|
|He found God...|
|Setting out over the hills of those who sleep, with a duck as companionship.|
|He's one of those personalities that transcends the normal of newspaper cartoonists.|
|With the official "con sketch" of the interview, simply put Leunig detailed that life is as absurd as a duck with a teapot on its head.|
|Leunig's a very cool, generous and humble cartoonist.|

Well folks it's been 5 years since I took on the role of Luna Park Cartoonist and it's been awesome! I'm pleased to announce my first video for the holiday season to mark this momentous occasion I will be doing, pretty much the same fun caricatures I've always strived to make. More coming soon. :)

Not every day I get a chance to draw dog caricatures, this was one I did of Bolt-(just like the under rated Disney movie) beloved family pet that ended up having to be given away. Much like a protagonist in a Dickens story, but turns out for the best.
