This month draw Gabby draw! turned 5 years old! Here is one of the first drawings I posted, back in February 2009. Five years in internet time is a long time. I guess my style is the same and different. That’s what one would expect, right?

Detail.

Something reptilian. When I started this I told myself I could only use the brown, blue, and black paint in my tray, and that I could only outline in pencil (no ink). Then I broke a rule and allowed an accent color.

Watercolor, pencil, a teeny bit of colored pencil, on cold-pressed watercolor paper.

This is the best thing ever. Read on and watch:

This animation by Denis Chapon is epic. There can be nothing more important for you to do right now than to watch this.

In 2008, with no exact plan in place, Denis just took to doodling on the backside of used paper. He made 12 drawings a day (that equaled one second of animation). And then, each of the following days, he took the last three drawings from the day before and kept on animating. Three years later, that slow accumulation of little bits of effort over time rendered an incredible movie that’s captivating to watch and completely filled with spontaneity.

I’m thinking maybe I ruined this by painting it, but I also couldn’t leave a line drawing on watercolor paper because that stuff ain’t free, you guys. Might as well add some background color, I guess!
