A couple of months back I completed a Flash-animated cartoon called The Dentist Survival Kit. It’s a spoof infomercial designed to promote Way of the Master Radio, a nationally syndicated show on Christian talk radio. The campaign has now officially kicked off and you can view the animation HERE. If you like it, feel free to forward it to your friends (there’s a “Send to a Friend” button at the end of the cartoon).
I doubt the debate will ever take place, but it would be fascinating to watch…

I recently rented Citizen Kane, which I guess makes me an official film buff. It’s considered by many to be the greatest American film of all time, so I had high expectations when my wife and I sat down to watch it. At first we weren’t too impressed, but by the end of the film I could see what all the fuss was about. But I won’t spoil it–you have to rent it for yourself.
Citizen Kane is also full of powerful visuals: excellent lighting, dynamic compositions, and some great faces. I just had to watch it again so I could do some sketching. I don’t often put much black in my artwork, but studying this movie reminded me again of the power of contrast.
Drawing in a “comic book” style is not my strong suit, but I enjoy trying it every once in a while. This week’s assigment at DrawerGeeks is “Aquaman”. He’s had many incarnations over the years, but I chose to go with the version I remember from my childhood days watching “Superfriends”.
This week’s topic at Illustration Friday is “Angels and Devils”. This will be the third week in a row where I just happen to have worked on a project that relates to the I.F. theme. This is an old illustration from 2001 for a Christian teen magazine. The shirt area was left blank for text.
