hi my name is graham and I love to draw and write. This is a place where I put those things I make, and also stuff from the internet I like, because that's what blogs are for. I think.

most everything from my sketch blog lives here, too, but feel free to check it out at the Tinosaur link below.

i write books sometimes, too. whee!

James Lopez, a veteran Disney animator (The Lion King, Pocahontas, Paperman), is currently trying to raise money for his traditionally animated project Hullabaloo. Hullabaloo is a steampunk short film which Lopez is hoping will help save the cause of 2D animation, and possibly lead to a TV series or film. So, if you’re interested in badass steampunk ladies or traditional animation, may I recommend you give a dollar or two. Hullabaloo's IndieGogo page is over here, visit to donate and learn more! And I’ll conclude with the plot: 

Hullabaloo is the story of Veronica Daring, a brilliant young scientist who returns home from an elite finishing school to find her father—the eccentric inventor Jonathan Daring—missing without a trace! The only clue left behind points Veronica toward Daring Adventures, an abandoned amusement park used by her father to test his fantastical steam-powered inventions. There she discovers a strange girl named Jules, a fellow inventor who agrees to help Veronica in locating her missing father and discovering the secrets of his work.

Together, Veronica and Jules learn that Jonathan Daring has been kidnapped by a mysterious group of influential persons, who seek to use his latest invention for nefarious purposes. These villains are wealthy and influential and neither Veronica nor Jules can stop them openly. But determined to save her father and holding true to the family creed that technology should be used for the good of all, not the greed of some, Veronica assumes the secret identity of “Hullabaloo”, a goggled crusader who uses wits and science to combat evil and oppose the nefarious conspiracy that has taken her father.

As an added note: Any donations over $500 include a reward of an animation class taught by James Lopez himself! Not to mention other rewards for other amounts such as signed art books, the soundtrack, and even original art!

HI. hello. I am very poor and I want your money. So I drew some stuff and you should give me a dollar for it. Because it pleases your eye holes and that is a marketable skill, or so I’m told.
It’s pay-what-you-want which technically means if you want to pay zero you can. And that’s cool. But it also means you can pay a dollar or ten or FIVE HUNDRED and that’s also cool. Because money makes the world go ‘round and all that. Also I am very poor. You can help me with that.
Here is 9 things I drew. NINE WHOLE THINGS. That have not been posted and are kinda cute (I am biased tho because I kinda drew them) of some slime booties in undies. With occasional titties. But mostly booties.
Featuring characters belonging to xenthylart, kittycatkissu, laproserpine, miss-mixi, stickpop, furrycatgirl, and of course Gui. Like more Gui than anyone else. Because reasons.
I’ve done this one other time and it was actually fairly successful considering like.. it was really bad. And these are also still bad! Just less bad. And the butt kinda makes up for the bad. There’s so much butt. Like a lot of butt.
Anyway you can download it [ here ].
Whether you toss some dollars my way or download it free.. thank you for your support! I love you all!

Early morning reblog.

Every now and then people ask me about my process, how I colour things in or achieve certain textures. I always mean to answer these questions, but it’s kind of complicated and it would be a bit time consuming.
So here instead are some pictures to do that job. A caveat here is that I rarely work the same way twice and every job is generally an experiment in figuring out new ways to work. But lately quite often my process is something like this.

Step one is to start on paper with ink or gouache. I scan that in and through some photoshop magic (selecting black and white channels and copying to layers) turn every piece into layers. These are actually all things I still happened to have on file. For my last book I made a little data base of rocks, trees and branches to use wherever I needed something. Think of it as a form of collage.

I very quickly put these things together for this demo. Then put every layer on a transparency lock (it’s in the layer window). The next step is basically just messing around with colours. I have a pretty large collection of custom brushes made from various ink and paint washes and splashes. You can basically just use those as rubber stamps to add colours and textures to your layers. This is where the transparency lock comes in handy, as you don’t need to select anything.
Finally I mess around with some adjustment layers to see if something interesting will happen to the colours I hadn’t planned on.
And that’s basically it.

I got some questions about my colouring process lately, so I thought I’d reblog this. It’s a bit old, but I still work pretty much the same way for a lot of projects. Sometimes I draw directly in photoshop and use those custom brushes to layer colours and textures on shapes, or I make something predominantly with pencils. In which case I either use a transparency lock on the linework and colour it in that way. Or it barely needs any work.
Which frankly, seems like a better and better idea the longer I’m working on my current mess of bits of scanned in gouache and ink washes.
