In this 16 minute drawing demo I show you how to draw a pretty pinup girl using a wacom tablet and Autodesk Sketchbook Pro.
Today I am going to introduce to you a very special friend of mine from way back in my Disney days. His name is Dana Reemes and he is the cat’s pajamas!
I used to stay late at the studio every night and work on my own animation projects. You know me, I’m always trying to better myself. I figured I wasn’t going to be at Disney forever and wanted to take full advantage of my time there. Dana worked nights as well and we became friends. Dana met Robert Crumb in 1967 in the flea bag Miramonte Hotel on Mission Street where Robert was staying at the time. Dana brought his sketchbook and Robert kindly went over it with him! Not only that, Crumb gave some sage advice as well as a Crowquill Penpoint! Believe it or not Dana still has it!
Artist reps AKA Agents.
Why would you need one?
We artists dream of being represented by an agent who will market our work, set up pitch meetings, score us an in-house or freelance gig, and do all that boring non-art stuff like marketing, negotiating, and selling. Well if you have a great idea for an animated TV show, Movie, or book and want to pitch it to the major studios and networks, you’ll have a tough time getting a meeting without an agent.
The stark truth is that it’s extremely tough to find a good agent.
For artists it’s best if you’re already known enough in your field to have agents seeking you instead of you going to them. Sadly this rarely occurs. Very few artists get this privilege. The rest of us must submit material to many agents and agencies and choke down the pile of rejection slips before eventually hooking up with an agent willing to take a chance on us.
