Sketch-A-Day #144 is a tribute to my favorite cartoon series of all time: “Avatar: The Last Airbender”. Amazing story and characters – if you haven’t watched the series, then you’re missing out. Anyways here’s an ink and marker sketch of Appa, Momo and Aang… “Yip yip Appa!”

Sketch-A-Day #143 and Rose City Comic-con
Last weekend was Rose City Comicon (Portland, OR) and for me the highlight was talking to Tom Cook. (Tom has been animating/directing since 1978 and worked on many of the cartoons that I remember as a kid, like Challenge of the SuperFriends, He-Man and the Master of the Universe, Thundarr the Barbarian, Blackstar, Scooby Doo, Bravestarr, Flash Gordon, Ghostbusters and tons of others). We chatted just a bit and he drew me a sketch for me 🙂
When I got back to my booth I felt like doodling some Thundarr the Barbarian myself, so here’s sketch-a-day #143…
