Koko and Yuki

Names confirmed. My japanese-Austrian friend informed me that her parents gave her and her sister japanese names that are easy to pronounce in a non-japanese country.
Seemed to make sense; Blue hair's Koko and Pink hair's Yuki.

Just got Up; studied some acting sketches from one of my favorite bits of animation in the movie; when the bird's saying goodbye to the three characters, conveying her attitude towards the three of them: deep affection, condescending fondess, and resoloute mistrust.

Some other sketches for the two "Bubble Hub" twins. I don't know whether it expresses strong misogynism or a lack of it, but it was inspired by, in my opinion, girls excessive apprehension over their waistlines; or in the case of "blue-hair" (name in progress), an unusual lack of it...
Roald Dahl was such a huge part of my childhood, looking back and remebering all the old kids books. Per usual, the name meant absoloutely nothing to me. I love how tackfully gory half of them were, hee hee. Roald had a knack for tapping into childrens love of violence and dismemberment without ever crossing the lines of good taste or intelligence.
Funnily enough "The Giraffe and the Pelly and me" was the one I remeber the most fondly, despite the fact that it was probably his most innocuous...
Curious to see the Fantastic Mr. Fox, which is one of his I missed as a child and finally read in the light of the the approaching movie.

The Bubble Hub

Seems all the ideas I get turn out to be really girly. Ah well.
I thought of a simple idea of a tv show about two completely incongrous twins forced to work in their dad's bubble tea shop (being a very popular beverage here in Vancouver), while inbetween college classes for the summer.
Most of the great comic cartoons, I find, tend to be very simplistic and relatable in their setting, allowing you two spend most of your efforts playing with juxtaposing character personalities and doing really exaggerated gags and comic devices.
Anyone who can tell whom blue-hair is based on: amazingly they only part of this drawing that IS an exaggeration is that she hate bubble tea....

Bull vs. Boar

Unlike the spanish "Bullfight", the japanese one is comparably more humane: you just put to bulls in the arena, and in traditional bull form, they bang heads together until one of them is pushed out or chased out of the arena.

Just one more bit of fanart to get rid of the last bits of obssession revived by my halloween costume.... hopefully that'll satisfy it so I can get on with orginal stuff...
