Movie Characters!













  I decided to do what all the cool people are doing and make a blog.  For my first post, I have the stuff I put up for the Cal Arts 2009 Character Animation Gallery Show.   A bunch of people this year did particular themes for their displays this year, so I decided to do stylized renditions of various movie characters.  After I did these, I kept thinking of more and more movie characters I wanted to draw, but didn't have the time, so maybe I'll do a few more after films...See if you can guess who's who!

  1. Haha, awesome! I love the Princess Bride ones...

    I wasn't able to make the opening due to work type stuff, but I think I'm gonna come see the show in person while it's still hanging.

  4. Greetings Benton. My name is Januel, I'm a friend of Diana's. I found your blog through hers. REALLY REALLY REALLY cool stuff man. As a passionate movie lover, I was very inspired by your sketches. I hope you do more and I really hope you make a book out of all of these. You let me know the second you do and I'll forget that you dropped my cargo at the first sight of an imperial ship.

  5. Hey B.

    I posted drawings of yours on my blog as a way to make myself look cool, but I totally didn't ask your permission. I'm not asking for permission now either (I mean, you really can't do anything about it, I could probably beat you up if I had to).

    Good luck on Flapjack. They are super lucky to have you. Let's do lunch some day!
