It’s time, boils and ghouls; let’s go trick-or-treating (October 25-31)! Every year, I design a posable character from the film “Young Frankenstein,” a favorite Halloween film.
You can bookmark and access the trick-or-treat page year-round. After October 31, you can revisit the page and vote on who the next character will be.
Alright, everyone, be on alert! Cats are acting very odd, and items have been reported as stolen. The two could be related, but how? Grab your pencils, pens, crayons, colored pencils, markers, or whatever drawing instrument that you can get your hands on (I highly recommend a pencil); we’re going to help Carl the Duck crack the case!
“The Rise of the Rusty Robo-Cat” is the third installment in the “Doodle Adventures” series. Written and illustrated by Mike Lowery, young readers will go on an interactive reading adventure to foil a dastardly kitty’s plot to conquer the world. How can readers help Carl?
As some may know, I celebrate Halloween on this website every year. But, the trick-or-treat page is usually up for only 1 week. Well, today, I remedied that! The page is now up year-round, and you can download all of the “Young Frankenstein” treats from years past.
Halloween is celebrated for a full week (October 25-31, Pacific Time), and that’s when you’ll get the next treat. See you in a couple of weeks!
It is my unfortunate displeasure to announce the second death of the Doorless Chambers website. Due to the lack of time and money on my part, and the lack of interest of the public, I am forced to close it once again.
Now, that’s not to say it’s spirit won’t live on. I’ll continue to design and release the Young Frankenstein Posable Figures every Halloween. And, the Disney Experience will continue to create annual treats.
Doorless Chambers will close in early August, 2015.
For my birthday, I bought myself an M-51 engineers field bag. At first, I was both overwhelm and undecided about what to put in it. After a few days, I discovered that I was adding more art supplies than anything else. So, I decided to turn it into an artist’s go bag for long trips where I typically wouldn’t be able to do much art.
For simplicity, I focused mainly on both drawing/sketching and watercolor painting. Simplicity. Yeah, right!
I started with the basic materials. Then, I started anticipating different scenarios; the bag got heavy. I had to do an audit to get the weight down and to make room for the essentials. Then, I could start adding in fluff. Here’s what I’ve got so far:
Now I just need to test it in the field.
This year, I revived my old Doorless Chambers website with the intention of keeping it going this time. It should be much easier than prior years since I’ve found solutions to a lot of problems.
Doorless Chambers is an annual free online trick-or-treating event that runs from October 25-31. As a last-minute decision, I’ve decided to add Nava Designs to the roster, giving out a special Halloween treat. Come back to this blog during the mentioned dates to get started, or visit Doorless Chambers.
I started a video series on the Disney Experience, showcasing the entire design process of a new paper model. I thought some people might like to watch how I work.
