Derek Hunter Was Here

Here’s some sketches I’ve been doing for the last few days because we have company staying in my office. No computer= No comics! The Donatello one is a direct result of DEVOURING the new TMNT illustrated history book that you should definitely check out. Batman…who knows why Batman…because he’s awesome. And then a drunk Finn for good measure.

Originals available HERE!

Also, Rose has finally figured out that Daddy can draw her whatever she wants, so in the morning we’ve been drawing and coloring together…and I am drawing these quick, because when she’s done coloring one, I better have the next one ready or else!

I’ve been playing catch-up for the last 3 weeks, trying to get this project back on track!

A tiny, blurry preview of what I’ve been up to after work for the last 3 weeks.

I am taking five commissions this week. If I can finish them all then next week I will take five more and so on in that fashion. My goal is to become more productive and develop a more structured daily routine while honing and refining my skills with styles and materials I don’t get to use while…

Tasty.

I drew a pirate thing. Pirates are assholes. Leave those indigenous island people’s treasure alone, assholes.

MTV asked me to write a letter to YOU, telling you about what it’s like to be intersex. Let me know what you think!

My multi-talented super friend, Emily Quinn is making waves and being awesome at life. I’m so proud of her for sharing her story with the world.

Adventure Time - The Art of Ooo - 6sec preview.

Friday reminder: The Art of Ooo, written by Chris McDonnell, will be available for your coffee table on Rocktober 14.

I’m in here! Didja see me? This is a really amazing book full of a lotta fun stuff from the show makin process that doesn’t always get to be seen!  I would very much recommend it

Read me say stupid things. Look at some of my old drawings :)  Couldn’t be more proud and honored.

Guys, if you like thorough, THOROUGH art books, this is a gorgeous example of what an art book should be (IMHOOOOOO). Great art all the way from pre-production to guest episodes to the most recent seasons. So honored to have a bunch of my art in this book, sandwiched in between some truly fantastic visionaries’ work!

So…Buy it!

Sketch dump!

Oh, I drew a bunch of these. Fun episode.

How did you score the gig of background designer for Adventure Time?

I just drew lots and lots of comics and made friends with people who also drew lots and lots of comics. Eventually (years and years later) we all started getting jobs making movies and cartoons and “real comics” and started recommending our fellow hard-working comic creator friends for jobs.

When I got sick of my greeting card illustration job, I decided it was time for me to try my hand at animation, and when I turned to my friends in the field, they knew I had the goods (or lead me to believe they thought so) and eventually, one of those recomendations turned into a job on Adventure Time.

I personally feel like making comics is one of the best ways to train yourself for a job in animation. You learn to draw fast, draw well, be clear and concise in your storytelling, draw figures in perspective, etc, etc, etc!

Keep drawing!
