enjoying drawing

I'm starting to really enjoy drawing again. i think that when i started to amimate things i realized how good you have to be in order to create strong form and expression. i think that i used to get bogged down by that and it used to make me hate myself everytime i put pencil to paper. i've not drawn any animation for months now which is bad, but i've really got into drawing on the train or at a bus stop or wherever, and weather it be a good or a bad drawing i just enjoy making the marks.

i'm not gonna do any drawn animation until i can get a line tester set up in my house, so until i've saved the money to get a shitty laptop and a shitty camera with some sorta stand, your gonna just have to make do with drawings.

hopefully it won't take me too long.

and i've got so much reading to do. i.e. the illusion of life, Walt Stanchfiel drawing notes, then re-read animators survival kit.

Anyway, the push a block animation didnt work out too well, I did post another animation though.

Hey, so glad you liked the animation man. Too be honest I totally forgot to think of squash and stretch during the animating proces, haha how bad.
Maybe you read it, but I ordered illusion of life and some other books, really wanna read those :)
