The topic was "Hairy Potter", right?


Only had time for a quickie but who can resist a bad pun.

Harry Potter


This is the cover of the final book
in the series: "Harry Potter and the
Worthless Education." It's a shame
that potential employers care so
little about the good grade you got
in "Spell Casting." Way to prepare
your students for the real world,
Hogwarts.

First Post!



Hello everyone! I finally get to post some art on Toon Club. It's a great honor. I missed the last two topics due to relocation, but I am now settled in to my new home on the West coast. Looking forward to posting more often.

Seusian-Dog


An attempt at drawing a Seusian- style dog... a serious challenge.

The Grinch!



I did this in 2 minutes flat!....not really, more like two hours. This is a bit out of season, but I think the only thing better than Dr. Suess, is Dr. Suess and Chuck Jones! I always thought Chuck's design of the Grinch looked like he was made of terricloth.

15 minutes flat


Screw those "I do a painting a day!" people!!! I drew AND colored this in fifteen minutes flat.

I was going to make up a poem to go with it, but instead, I didn't.

I posted this just to be consistent, now I'm going to focus on creating some good drawings since I've committed to posting every week.

Once again, no color.
6/27/07...
SO, there was more than one request for a poem to go along with this beauty of a painting. Well, what kind of artist would I be if I didn't cater to the masses? (Lowly animation and illustration as they are)...well, I'd be a "Fine Artist" who, instead, caters to da masses. (Copyright Shane Lewis '07)
Here's my poem:
The angry beast rages from street B to street A,
All those houses he'll flail in a whip-snapping way,
He'll crunch down on bones for an afternoon snack,
About some he will say "I want more of that!"
So if you're in Seussville and need a good pounding,
Come over to our house and meet our pet Zounding,
He likes to play rough (in fact most never live!)
You'll be surprised at how little mercy he gives.
But our little Zounding, he's such a swell pet,
If another I find then another I'll get,
Then they can square off, as Zoundings are gay (as in happy)
But they're quite thermo-nuclear, so don't get in their way!

The Doctor is IN

Stuffed Smurf

I got a Stuffed Papa Smurf for Christmas once when I was little. Luckily, I don't think it was the REAL Papa Smurf, just that it was made to LOOK like him.

Smurf-Thing!


'Nuff said!

Not really a smurf


It has been so long, I've missed you guys. I still haven't drawn on topic for a long time, but I wanted to post this.

She's a redhead, but if she were blue, she'd be a smurf.

Smurfette


Yes, another full color piece. It's not my fault Smurfs are blue.

Welp, Smurfette is an interesting creature...she would've either been the most isolated or the most inundated individual in Smurf society. I don't know if Smurf's have much of an identity since they all kind of share a name.

Anyway, I figure she had to do dishes sometime, not that she ALWAYS did the dishes in Smurfville, I think they probably divided them equally. She's an Equal Rights Smurf.

Who knows, next week I might even be able to draw an ENTIRE figure...

Hold your breath.

Nevernude Smurf


All right... so he's not a Smurf, but I tried drawing Smurfs and felt uninspired. Instead I went with my favorite Blue Man... Tobias F√ľnke... from Arrested Development.

This part of the movie is what inspired me to become a professional dancer.

When Mary holds your hand...


You might think I did a quick drawing and blurred the edges with an airbrush, yes, you might think that. However, this is a full color, complete figure of Mary, but those darn foggy London skies...
I'm not even gonna color it next time.

New Topic: Mary Poppins

Not many posts on the "I.T. Guy" topic... as we can all see. Oh well... moving on!

This week's topic is MARY POPPINS. Man, I love that movie.

Chim-Chum the I.T. Guy



Well, here's your problem...

I have nothing but praise for the heros that think inside the box so I don't have to.
