Comix Art Exhibition

The World Art Gallery in Costa Mesa is hosting an exhibit of comic book/magazine artists from August 2 to...? (the online community has apparently forgotten to post the end date). Anyway, the opening reception is August 2 from 6-10pm, it's free, there will be food, and most of all there will be drawings and comics from Jack Kirby! Robert Crumb, Charles Schultz, Griffin, Symons, Corben, Kane, Vess, MacFarlen, and Will Koffman.  So we should go.
The address is 1980 Placentia Ave., Costa Mesa 92627.

The Handle on Hands

In case anyone doesn't have copies of these... Hands! woo hoo!

Spline doctors- this sheet was drawn up to help find better poses for 3D animation....

Iron Giant model sheets

batman hands, not my most "favorite-est " but they show strong, simple lines of action, and I think they're good for graphic shape and first pass purposes.
