Teaching swimming lessons: that's how I'm payin' the bills folks! It is, ofcourse, everyone's dream job. Here are a few drawings from the water park I used to work at in Michigan. When I was doing these, I was making a giant, crappy painting. These made me realize I needed to get back to animating. I love the feeling of human weight sitting on my page. I think the effect of doing these came through for me most when I was working on the oversized father in The Parkbench: he had the same kind of shape as some of those water park moms. I've posted that model sheet as well as a pencil test of the Father and Son's Grand Entrance into the park.
