Spaceships! Also, the buildings in the far background that look a little like hamster habitats are fun to make up.
It’s fun to make comics. …so I made another one. This time I had more than a morning to put the thing together!
My favorite part about drawing backgrounds for this episode was hiding a drawing of my car with a portly bikini girl on the hood in the middle of the drug trip scene!
The carvings on the temple walls of the Combaticus episode are some of the most fun drawings from my time working on Superjail.
I drew backgrounds for the pilot and first season of Superjail. I especially liked hiding junk on the walls of the bar for “Superbar.”
The Upstate Four is a pilot that I created for Cartoon Network with my brother Fran Krause. We were involved in all aspects of the project from writing, design and storyboarding to color, animation, and sound.
We made the cartoon in New York, and managed to finish the project without outsourcing any of the animation. Hooray!
Here’s a link to a Cartoon Brew article about the process of making this cartoon:
I made this sofa in my spare time when I was teaching at Parsons and assisting students in the Furniture Design Shop. I made it the right size so that I can lay down on it without turning my neck to the side. Also, there is a hole in the back so that your arm won’t fall asleep when you take a nap. And the arms are tall, so that you can lean back on them when you read a book.
I printed the fabric myself, using a large sandblasted piece of pine as a printing block.
This comic appeared in a compilation about robots going haywire.
Hooper is a 3D-animated guinea pig (or maybe he’s a groundhog?) that plays around in an actual practical set. I built props for two seasons of these interstitials, including crayon drawings, construction paper collages, and objects sculpted from foam, like this googly-eyed orange bird.
Sorry for the junky photo quality! These props were built for a reality show where folks’ cubicles were redecorated in fantastical styles. In this case, a “Candyland” themed cubicle.
Christy Karacas organized a few albums worth of animation to go with Black Sabbath’s first three releases. For mine, I rotoscoped an old Muppet commercial for LaChoy noodles with a new set of characters.
