Topic #111: A Christmas Carol

The spirits did it all in one night, but it will probably take us slightly longer to get some great submissions for Topic #111: A Christmas Carol.

Happy Holidays, and thanks for being a part of Toon Club!

Cereal Tattoos

I didn't draw anything new here, but I got this email recently and wanted to post it under the cereal topic. I found it quite entertaining as it's based on a post I did specifically for Toon Club a couple of years ago:

"Mr Beach,
I have attached two pictures of tattoos I have based on your drawings of Count Chocula and Frankenberry. I will be receiving Boo Berry at some point as well, I had wanted a tattoo of them for quite a while now as most of my tattoos are based on loves I had as a child. I thought I would share the inspiration your illustrations brought me."

How cool is that?

I'm Already Ashamed of This Post

Topic #110: Cereal Mascots

Probably a lot of you have half finished drawings for the last topic, like me. Post them when you finish, but let's move on. I thought it'd be fun to try our hand(s) at Cereal Mascots.

Nice job, Adam!

Put down that test tube!

Here's a horror movie cliche that often crosses over into clip art and stock photography: a scientist holding up a test tube to closely examine it! They never do that. You can confirm this by asking the next scientist you happen to meet.

Pirates of Niagara

For an explanation of what inspired this one, please check out the lengthy description on my blog.

Personal Time Quest

My quest is to find a time machine. I would use it one of two ways: go back in time and stop myself from sketching all of these characters -and thereby eliminating the need to find the future time required to paint them all; or I could use the same time machine to go back and get more time from the time that I got rid of during my first trip back.

2009 has been the year of Zelda for me. I had never paid any attention to that pointy eared elf boy till this year, and now I've beaten like three of the games. This image depicts Link and (nearly) all of his accessories (no need to provide corrections or additions, I know I've missed a couple of things) from my latest conquest: Minish Cap. Overall a very fun game, though the final boss battle is absurdly difficult.

Quest Through the Infinite Cavern

To those of you who bet I'd never post... Booyah!

I know it's pretty early to change topics, but I feel we should really move on. Thanks to all who posted for "Australia". The next topic is "QUEST."

Fishing in Australia

I didn't do the research, but I believe that this is how it's done in Australia's Outback.

I think I'll move to Australia

Spring dip

Before you get angry and tell me people don't swim in the springtime, let me tell you this: I do.

Ain't love grand?

Love springs forth eternal... for some. 

I'll try to make some time to put more color on this one, until then, I figured I'd post something. Sorry for the long absence.

You know what mom always said...

If you keep making that face it'll stick. That's why Wolverine always looks mad, even when he's not.

That's what my kids call him: Mulverine.

Topic #105: Wolverine

Great job on the Desert topic, everyone!

Marvel Comics, in honor of the 35th anniversary of one of their most popular characters, is having a Wolverine Art Appreciation Month. Let's join in the fun by making WOLVERINE our next topic.

Shnkkt! (That's the sound of his claws popping out.)

Killing several birds with one stone

Cats? Check.
Desert? Check.
Now if the next topic is either "spice" or "crock pot", I'm ahead of the curve.

Well, it's late

...And I can't think of any way to tie it into "desert". Here it is anyway. :)

Desert Dessert

Topic #104: Desert

Time for a new topic... and we're going pretty vague on this one: DESERT. You could draw a tortoise.... a cactus... sand... anything that is somehow related to a desert. Also worth noting - the topic is not "dessert."

Topic #103: Cats

Great work on the cupids, gang! I wish I had been able to get something done, but maybe next time. In honor of the release this week of ToonClubber Adam Koford's book, The Laugh Out Loud Cats Sell Out, our next topic shall be CATS. Doesn't that sound purrrfect?

Welcome back to a new year at Toon Club, everyone! I hope you had a great holiday season. We're going to get things rolling again, starting with topic #101. And since it's topic #101, we HAVE to have it be DALMATIANS!

Have fun and see you next week with a new topic!
