THIS BLOG HAS BEEN RETIRED. I'm still going to be keeping it up here, though-- there's some pretty cool old stuff on it. That said, if you want to keep up to date with me, please go to www.georgeoconnorbooks.com.

Warm Up Action Figure
Today's warm-up drawing topic was "Action Figure" so I opted to draw this still life from my drawing desk at Hypothetical Island Studios. I am an action figure freak (my collection at home is... significant) and a few favorites have spilled over to my studio away from home. Here we have Beaker of Muppet Show fame being tortured/menaced by Lobster Johnson, of Hellboy Supporting character fame. In the background, you can see my long-suffering Jade plant. I just can't keep those things alive.
As a "bonus" for those of you who view this here rather than at the Drawbridge blog, here's a couple of shots of my home collection.
Gorillaz vs. Hellboy
Not a giant action figure, but fellow DrawBridger Nathan Schreiber, making a guest appearance amongst the collection. He held that pose for, like, hours.
