This week’s sketch is of Remy from Pixar’s “Ratatouille.” It’s one of the best films from the animation studio. Again, sorry about the blue lines. I have a backlog of drawings that I did during breaks at an old job, and they started off pretty impromptu, hence the lined paper.
I’ve always been a sketcher, so I thought I would use the blog to showcase some of my work.
A couple months ago, I had the pleasure of seeing “My Neighbor Totoro.” It’s a wonderful Japanese film that captures childhood’s sense of play and imagination better than most. It’s made with so much care and patience, with a late-blooming subplot involving our protagonists’ mother being the only real sign of a more standard, histrionic children’s film. Totoro is a mystical forest creature that our two protagonists, sisters, attach themselves to. I whipped up this sketch the day after seeing it.
Looking at it now, he’s ever so slightly lopsided. This annoys me to no end.
