Guy on Train: sketch

I have definitely been drawing every day for a few months now. I just haven't gotten in the habit of putting it up here. Plus sometimes it isn't very good. Starting now I'm going to try to put more of my daily sketches up. I drew a few people on the train. If I draw them in my perforated windwill skectchbook I will tear it out and give it to them just for fun even if it isn't much of a likeness of them. This one I drew in a non perforated book. This guy was really tall and quite a character. He was wearing those Verbatim Five Fingers shoes with a suit. I wasn't in a place to judge though I was wearing my cowboy boots.
I was on the train because I am doing some freelance animation down at 15 letters. Tons of fun. Things are going really well.

speech bubbles

I was thinking about how interesting it was that different lines and symbols could be used within comics and cartoons to represent things that it would otherwise be difficult to convey. Some examples are, A circular bubble to show what someone is saying. A cloud-like thought bubble to show what they are thinking. Wavy lines over something to show it has an odor. Straight lines behind something to show it is going fast. etc. I was wondering how hard it would be and over what period of time it would take to implant new comic features into society. I have some ideas for a few this is just one, the aural bubble showing what people are hearing. The actual design of it needs works but I like the idea at its core.
