Hello! This is the deal: I'm going to Austria tomorrow, for two weeks. Not on vacation, but to do some design-y stuff for the Swarovski company. They make crystals. Not the kind you dig up out of the ground or find in a mystical cave, but the kind that they glue all over celebrities to make them extra-fancy. So I'll have lots of stuff to show off about Austria when I come back! In the mean time, here are some sketchy-doodles from my sketchy book.

Some kids.



Owls. At one point I thought it would be really cool to draw 100 different owls. Does that sound like a good idea to you?



An unfinished Posieden. I liked where it was going.




Also, I met Walt Peregoy today. If you don't know who that is, then stop reading right now and go find out! He said the Freddie Moore was a drunk, Mary Blair was a drunk, and Marc Davis was a drunk. He also relived a conversation he once had with Milt Kahl:
Walt: I'm glad I don't live next door to you.
Milt: Why is that?
Walt: Because if your house was on fire, I wouldn't so much as piss on it.

He was a very, very irreverent old man. But he had some great stories!

Wish me luck in Austria...it's gonna be cold!

Great stuff!

I really like the owls.

My favorite inappropriate Walt Peregoy comment is his thought about Woolie Reitherman's death: "Even the trees hated him so much, they jumped out in front of his car."

Awesome post brigette! I love the really tall owl who's all hunched over. Have tons of fun in Austria, and bring my back the most powerful crystal you find!

Walt Peregoy! Holy crap. That's awesome. I live in Atlanta and my best hope to maybe run into the "Harvey Birdman" team. Your work is really great. I can't wait to see more.

Oh snap! Watch out Brigette, I hear they eat a lot of meat in Austria. But I'm sure you can handle it, after your Japan trip. Have fun! Tell Sean I say hi and tell him to climb some alps for me.

I've been going through an owl phase recently...or rather, I've just begun my owl phase... I love their design potential. These look fantastic.
Have fun in Austria.
