Skydoll. Although I'm not a huge fan of the comic scene I can certainly appreciate the art. Beautifully drawn, nice fluid poses and great expressions. Worth picking up if you can.

Their site is under construction but there are a few cool tidbits to tie you over.

My new favourite book. I just recently happened across the graphically re-released " Bone; Out from Boneville".
I loved it so much I ordered the Complete Bone in one volume from Amazon, which came yesterday.
I never followed the strip when it first came out and only now realize what I was missing. The design is great, the posing is exciting and the story is consuming.
I remember a while back hearing of plans to turn this epic into a feature film by Nickelodeon, talks of which have broken down.(Apparently Nick's parent company Paramount wanted to give it a Rugrats treatment, complete with songs from Britney Spears...scouts honour).

Anyways I highly recommend at least picking up the graphic novel, and if you have the $39 picking up the 1332pg. Complete Bone at Amazon.

For fans of Bone and it's creator Jeff Smith go to BONEVILLE.

Well I'm taking a couple of days off to spend time with the kids on their last couple of days of March Break so I thought I'd share a few links to tie you over till next week.
First is a great review of the Incredibles DVD including Easter eggs and where they can be found. If you haven't already picked it up do so immediately. Great appearence by an old school buddy who was lucky enough to be one of the three supervising animators. Steve "Clay" Hunter can't be missed. The one with the orange tuft of hair in the middle of his forehead. Check out the review at ULTIMATE DISNEY.
Next is a cool site with work from a disigner named Ben Balistreri. Most notable is his work on Danny Phantom. Check out his portfolio HERE.
And last but not least is a fairly new site which is dedicated to the animation of DePatie-Freleng. Some great clips of the old Pink Panther series. Definately worth bookmarking. Check it out HERE.
All for now, have a great weekend.

Over the next few weeks I will be starting a new Blog dedicated to the artist below.

Rowland Emett , born 1906 in England, had a wonderful style and a flair for inventiveness.

A highlight would be his production design work for the movie Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
His train illustrations are phenominal. Keep a look out for future postings.
