Cheer Up Brigade

Two sides of the same Eric Baudour, as requested by the man himself. Drew one version like the other Mega64 crew, and a more Botan Rice Candy inspired version.

Hope you enjoy!

BaF 9, let’s learn about rats! While snakes are evil by their nature, rats are a manifestation of evil. Technically rats are a lesser form of daemon, in the shape of an animal. Bet you didn’t know that!

More stickers! Haha, it feels funny calling these stickers before I’ve printed them. This has been a fun exercise in drawing and coloring, and I’d love to do a full color comic in this style. I’ve been using my laptop’s track pad which really slows everything down. My next big investment will be probably be a drawing tablet.

The guys from Mega64, now in cute little critter form. Derrick Acosta, Shawn Chatfield, Garret Hunter, and Rocco Botte. These were fun practice! More or less based these off of clothing they’ve actually worn. Shawn’s outfit is inspired by his recent autograph video, but the colors are totally invented.

I love Mega64, these guys are so great!

So here’s the first batch of colored stickers! I really enjoy having drawn myself as that chubby cat. Oh man I love botan rice candy stickers. I’ll have these puppies for sale at MICE in Massachusetts.

By the way, if anyone has any of their art on a sticker, I’d love to do a trade! I still have to color another batch, and actually print these puppies out, but I think it’d be a lot of fun to trade with people. Let me know in a note if you’d be up for that!

So! Been working on these past couple of days. These are going to become stickers that I plan on selling at MICE. Wanted to practice a new way of drawing figures, and wanted to play around with different clothing styles, body types, etc. The dudes are based on a group of very funny filmmakers. Guess who!

The last three are based on Botan Rice Candy stickers. That donut eating girl should be familiar if you’ve been following my blog for a while. I’ll be applying shading and color to these in the coming days. I work at a museum part time, and I’m able to work on art while sitting at the front desk.

Sorry for not posting more often. I need to get in the habbit of scanning my work more often. I can post sketchbook pages too, if people are interested. I’ve been filling my recent book up pretty quickly, so it’s where most of my recent drawings live.

BaF 8, Let’s learn about lobsters! Maine is lousy with lobsters, so much so that “lobster men” are contracted for annual lobster culling, wherein millions of lobsters are hunted, and cooked for hungry tourists. If not for this act, there would be little of the Maine Coast not covered in swarms of lobsters.
I’m selling this page at my storenvy, here. You can find comics and prints and stuff there too! I’ll also be listing past pages on the store eventually.

As a cartoonist you might go through a phase where you use a lot of computer tricks to construct your comic pages. You’ll think it makes your work look more professional. You’ll be excited that you can use things like a motion blur tool in a panel. You’ll think “my handwriting sucks. I better use…

I had a semester at school with someone who suffered from this pretty hard. Be careful you don’t let digital tricks go too far!

I referenced this in my Night in the Woods animation, but the last time I’ve been as excited for a game to come out was Bioshock 1. I can’t tell you how many hours I spent in the demo they released on the Xbox 360. 
By the way, I used to make a lot of stuff out of duct tape! Mostly hats, but occasionally stuff like this. I wore this to high school and stomped around the school for one day. The glove is a batter’s mit with the leather connecting the fingers removed, and the shoes have Home Simpson slippers inside them. Hot dang I have to get another pair of those things.
Look carefully and you can see my face while I’m scrunched up inside the mask thing!

BaF 7 is finally here! A peacock lives in my neighborhood, and asked me to tell the world facts about him. If you know of any royal families in Vermont, let me know! They are missing a big beautiful bird.

Reblog for the early little morning birds all twittering and tweetin’ with their little cups of  bird seed coffee and earth worm muffins or something like that I don’t know! Guys when I have to create animal fiction it all goes down hill. I can only tell the straight hard yet beautiful facts with this analytical, scientific mind.

Playing around with some style stuff. Behold my terrible animating and TREMBLE!

Oh my goodness your Beautiful Animal Facts comics are so good and hilarious, I was reading them all and cracking up and just sort of assumed they all had at least a few thousand notes-- am I in before the rush? Do I get to say that I liked BAF before it was cool??

Well thank you so much! This means a lot to me, toast. Education about animals is always cool, and I hope lots of people continue to enjoy learning hard facts about beautiful animals.
