I've really been into drawing characters with nubbly teeth lately. it's especially fun to draw my established Nothing Better characters this way - and give them beady little eyes. makes them look kind of perpetually dopey. in fact it made me think about the idea of an NB daily strip or something - if I would draw the characters goofier.
and the drawing of katt on the far left i was thinking about how if NB were a daily comic I could put the characters in more timely outfits and possibly turn their clever t-shirts into products like some webcomickers do. or maybe I'm poking fun at them. I can't tell...

if you don't know who or what Scott Pilgrim is, you should get hip to it right now! especially because Edgar Wright is in Toronto making it into a movie with Michael Cera and other cool people. the best part is his production/photo blog. it looks like they're having a ton of fun making the movie and Wright has done a good job of teasing the public with actors as their comic counterparts. can't wait to see this!

kind of digging this idea of song titles/band names. might do more but I'd like to figure out a more solid 'direction' for it. my initial idea with the previous AC/DC image was that the type was supposed to be in opposition to the hard edge of the band's music and image. we'll see.

meetings are the grown-up version of sitting through a class lecture in school - and we all know how great class was for doodling in the margins of your notebooks and coming up with brilliant ideas, right? I used to come up with so many great ideas. so I end up doodling when I am in a meeting a lot. this was from the other day. no big brilliant ideas but some fun silly drawings. I especially like the bird. and the guy in the left margin with the mole. he made me realize I never give full consideration to facial blemishes when I design characters. MORE MOLES!
