I referred to a specific frame in the film for this drawing, in order to force myself to use a different sort of composition. I realize that most of my pictures have a central figure, so for the next few pieces, I want to see how the movies themselves can suggest different approaches to setting up the page. In this case, I think it was a good starting point, but I didn't want to simply illustrate the scene directly. I decided to add the enlarged toys, button and bow to hint at the horrifying turn this movie takes at the end (Stef and I nearly had to turn this one off...)

So here's Purple Rain featuring Prince on his modified '83 Honda Silverwing. Apollonia has jumped in the "wrong river" as usual, but so have Wendy, Lisa, Jerome, Morris, and that fat club owner. Sorry Milton, no room for the member of Prince's band inexplicably dressed as a surgeon while the rest rock the New Romantic look. Not so far off from the little sketch from a few days back. Thanks Stef for the idea of throwing in the boys along with the girls.

I managed to watch three movies, but I didn't get a chance to draw the final images yet. Here's a preview of what I've got in mind, and you can compare them to the end product in the next few days.

Loud Quiet Loud (Pixies)

Lady Vengeance

Purple Rain

"Lost" has been kinda disappointing this season. Last night's was pretty good, but nothing worth drawing. This scene from earlier in the season was pretty funny, where Sawyer gets it on with Kate while Jack watches on the monitor. What's up with that one with Bai Ling? Note how I used the same highlight that I just did on "The Departed" yesterday. Already running out of ideas?

Saw "The Departed" the other night.

Horror night took a turn for the worse on Sunday with Tim's selection of "Roadhouse". This mostly tame fighting movie has a pretty ghastly finale, in which Swayze rips out a guys throat (which I've tried to capture here.)


I was asked to do an illustration for Comics Comics #2 for an essay by Peter Bagge on how Spiderman sucks because he's a momma's boy and is always complaining. Here's the selected piece:

These two weren't used but I think they're still funny. Here's Peter Parker wimping out on Mary Jane.
And here he is just kissing up to old Aunt May:
