Is everyone playing Inktober this year? I’m posting my dailies on Instagram and Facebook, but I thought I’d post the first week of drawings here too.
Happy Wednesday, everyone! Is everyone playing Inktober this year? I’m posting my dailies on Instagram and Facebook, but I thought I’d post the first week of drawings here too.

Q

lookitsanapril asked:

I can't decide: BYU illustration program, or Academy of Art University (or another trade-specific art school)? Is art school worth the expense? It seems to me that the best and most successful illustrators were mostly self-taught. If that's the case, I feel like it would be the best decision to go to a spiritual environment and practice there while I learn more. But I don't want to miss out on valuable education I can only get at an art school.

A

Academy of Art is an incredible institution; I’m sure you’d have many great opportunities if you decided to attend.

I can’t make your choice for you, but I can say what I would do in your situation. Art schools are expensive, and students frequently graduate in tremendous debt. I would avoid that if I could. One of the primary benefits of going to an art school like Academy of Art, CalArts, or Art Center is the connections you make with like-minded students and industry pros. But if you can promote yourself online and network that way, why spend all that crazy money?

Your education in the arts will be largely self directed. Educators will help to expose you to new artists, ideas, or techniques, but study in the arts is practicum-based. You gotta get your hands dirty and learn how YOU make art on your own terms. And if that’s the case, why not study at a place that would be more affordable, and in an environment conducive to who you want to become as a person?

The issue is obviously way more complex than I could break down here, and you’ll have lots of thinking to do on your own, but I’ll end by saying I loved my experience at BYU. And while it was not a dedicated arts-specific education, in the animation major I was surrounded by the most tremendous talents who intimidated and inspired me to become the best artist I could be

The spiritual component of my education there was also SO FORMATIVE in helping me be the best person I can be. I can recommend BYU wholeheartedly and without compunction.

It’s been a pretty eventful summer around the Holden house… or actually not very eventful, given the current state of some of my bones. Been learning a lot lately. Didn’t have to wait for school to start to do that.
Best lesson: Always listen to mama.
Second best lesson: Never let a motorcycle smoosh your leg.
Third best lesson: if your leg DOES get smooshed, make some cartoons. It’s been a pretty eventful summer around the Holden house… or actually not very eventful, given the current state of some of my bones. Been learning a lot lately. Didn’t have to wait for school to start to do that.

The ALSA’s #icebucketchallenge finally made it’s way around to the Holden house. A dear friend of mine lost her father to the disease only a few years ago. That wonderful man happened to be my wife’s OB at the time of our first pregnancy, and his passing was a sad day for so many. If there’s anything we can do to stamp out the disease, I say don’t wait till someone challenges you to dump a bucket on your head—just give what you can now.

EDIT: You might not be hearing the adorable voice of that little narrator if it hadn’t been for our good friend and doctor. Please do consider giving.

rainbow-meatballs asked:

Hi there! I just spent a solid 1 or 2 hours going through your whole blog and it was totally worth it, you're artwork is super inspiring and all the stuff with your kids is adorable! I actually have a question of curiosity for you as well!: Recently i have been struggling with my 'style' on how i draw things and just general uncertainty on the path i want to take my art, especially seeing so many amazing artists around! have you ever experienced this yourself or did your style just come to you?

A

This is the constant struggle of most artists, I think. Give it time. You’re style will come to you, most likely as a result of the stuff you love. I’ve been doing this for more than a couple of years now, and what I draw is constantly being pushed and pulled on when I see things that other folks are doing that I want to try. The pushing and pulling is less pronounced as I become more comfortable with what I want to do with my cartoons.

Don’t force it. Experience a lot of other people’s art, and steal what you like. You’ll develop your voice over time, and it will be a unique combination of the seashells you’ve been putting in your bag along your journey.

I have a confession to make: I love sports manga.
I have been watching Slam Dunk on Crunchy Roll, and it is making me want to draw girls playing basketball all the time. Yowapeda has also recently become a favorite. And I feel like I can’t begin a conversation about sports manga without bringing up Adachi Mitsuru, who is basically the king of comics.
What else am I missing? What’s your favorite sports manga/anime? I have a confession to make: I love sports manga.

Just a warm down doodle. Got rompers on the mind after a conversation yesterday.

Some of you may have heard that I was in a pretty bad motorcycle accident last week. I got banged up pretty bad, but miraculously my right arm (which is the one I use to draw) came out with only some cuts and bruises.
I’ve had some reconstructive surgery done to my leg, and I’ve got another one scheduled for my left hand tomorrow. My recovery time is supposed to  be 6 months or so, but I’ve been up on crutches and even felt well enough to make this little comic.
Thanks  to all the people who have reached out with their thoughts and prayers. It has helped immensely in my recovery. Many of you know that I am also a man of faith, and I am convinced that God spared my drawing hand (as well as any head, neck, or back injuries). I’m going to do my best to make the most of what I’ve been given—I’ll be back with the funny soon!

Basketball doodlettes. You know. To wind down and stuff.

Happy Father’s Day!
In many ways this is the best day of the year for me. My life has been made so much richer because of my dear wife an children, so today I would like to celebrate them.
My family writes the best comics dialogue. When I have time, I like to animate the comics, but sometimes there’s just too much funny stuff happening everyday so it’s quicker to capture it this way. I hope that years from now my kids will look back on this time in their lives and have a good laugh.
If you’re on the fence about getting married or having kids, I can’t recommend it highly enough. There’s nothing else in the world that compares. Happy Father’s Day!
