Great stuff (not surprising, since it's coming from such an amazing cartoonist) as always, Bob. I like the linework on the first drawing.

Hey Bob,

I wanted to be an animator but I got sucked into fine art and illustration.I worked in ralph bakshis studio for a day, once. I am dying to learn storyboards and I thought ren and stimpy was the best cartoon since those cave drawings. can you teach me storyboards? I will work for free! I live by blue sky so I want to get some work there.

damn bob! your sketches are really sweet!! i've got a question about how you approach these dev sketches. did you gather a whole bunch of reference for this?

one of my cartoonist buddies has a great memory and remembers what everything looks like. i always draw blanks and gotta go find reference. is this a muscle that you exercise somehow, or do you just have an extensive library of sample ref materials or what?

i'm pokin around like there's some big secret when it's probably that i just need to start drawing a wider variety of things and trying to build my memory of what they look like.

Hey Chris,
Well I sit down and do about a hundred drawings until I start liking one or two. Then I force myself to focus on shapegrouping. That's finding funny shapes that work well together and trying different variables. It helps to start really small and simpkle so as not to get hung up with details. Sometimes I' try to draw too well and get all hung up on one character. If I get hung up or don't have any ideas I search around looking at other people's work and examine what I like about their drawings and try to break it down into the simplest elements.
I always have to remind myself to stop trying so hard and just relax and do a lot of scribbling. I find that using a pencil sometimes makes me too carefull and to precious with my drawings. Often I will grab a bic ballpoint and start drawing quick and dirty. You know you can't erase and you are free to fuck up and often I get my best drawings this way.
