Meet everyone's least favorite Pokemon.

The shading was the more interesting thing for me, though. I tried to imitate the sort of dingy, scratchy hatching I saw in Mad magazine 10, 15 years ago. I think it was Mort Drucker...the guy who did 6 page long movie satires every God damn month. Every panel was full of dead-on caricatures and funny little bit characters and puns and throwaway gags. He was the sort of guy who made Charles Schultz (one comic, every day, until the day he died) look like a lazy bum.
I started this blog while trying to teach myself how to draw and hoping to find a professional artist to mentor under. Then I decided I needed to go to school. Now I'm about to graduate with a degree in graphic design and go on to a B.S. in fine art.
