Slaying Success GIF

I'm currently expanding the scope of the Frogs and have been searching for the correct medium. Animated GIFs have come up from time to time as a serious thought. I like GIFs. They are simple to enjoy and quick. No play button, no sound, but they can have an impact if done well. I love the GIFs people make on the internet and I wanted to make some too. Enjoy this one called, "Slaying Success."

In the future we will have these.

It's really wonderful to have the opportunity to attend the Great Frog Comic Conference (GFCC) of the Pacific Northwest this weekend. I'll be schmoozing with some of the great frog comic artist like Alfred P. Sloan, Guy Fresco and Terwilliger Worthington. I'll take lots of pictures and delete them immediately because my memory is much more accurate.

How I Drew The Draw Frog Banner

I started with some soft brown paper for my base and some black paper which I knew I was going to use as a mat and border. I then sketched a border, the lettering and the frog with pencil.

My hand holing a pencil I own. (pretending to sketch)



I did a few tests with some of these markers and I decided the darker warm grey looked best for the letters and the lighter warm grey looked best for the frog.




I like the watercolor feel of the grey markers. They are Faber-Castell big brush markers.

I've Recently Discovered Self-Love

How can you expect someone else to love you if you don't first love yourself? I mean, take your clothes off and take a good long look in the mirror. Check yourself out and say, "yeah, I love you so much." After that, you can go about your business.

I'm Sorry I Can't Reach the Phone

Drew this while working in a at a push-poll call center in Oregon. It's supposed to symbolize our daily struggle to do simple things...like being able to reach objects. If only the person could have reached the phone to tell me this. Instead, they had to leave a message to let me know they were struggling. Hearing things like this can fill one with a sense of helplessness.
