HB +

I've been drawing caricatures of HB characters since I was a kid. I'm starting to collect them on a new blog. There are a few there.

I have tons more in storage somewhere but haven't unearthed them yet. I guess I'll have to do more.

All of these are hilarious, John, but you must realize that if you'd presented a portfolio like this to H-B in the early 60's, they would have been horrified by it!

I keep forgetting about Huckleberry Hound... he is such a nascent character ripe for surprises. I would love to see your take on Top Cat or Wally Gator. I love Barney's green hair. It's like he's distantly related to Sprout or something.

I looked and I remember some of them from when I was looking through your blog, but the ones I hadn't seen are amazing!

thanks so much!
i didnt know you have so many blogs..
these HBs are so inspiring for me, i find myself obsessed with how to find some time to sit and draw and ink some stuff in that spirit..
guess a weekend with my family will make me postpone these thoughts. oh well...
peace!

I'll never look at animation in the same way as I did before, after reading Mr. K's careful analyses of how to draw... and how not to.

Unfortunately for me, I have what a doctor called an "essential tremor" in both hands, so I can't draw anything at all. I get by all right in Photoshop, though. Pixels and paint are two different things.

Doctor: "You have an essential tremor."

Me: "Well, who said it's essential? I sure don't need it!"

Doctor: "No, that means that you'll have a hand tremor for life and it will never go away."

I think I might look around for another doctor. Maybe one with a license...
