Movie Quotes 02

Years ago, my brother Bob and I came up with a term for movies that our family loved and we called the list, "Apel Staples" (for those of you who don't know, Apel rhymes with Staple or Maple)

"Apel Staples" are basically movies are ultimate favorites from over the years for my parents, my brothers and myself. The list has grown now, since our families have grown to include our wives and kids, but the original list included many films by John Candy and in particular, Uncle Buck.

There are a huge list of great quotes from that movie thanks to Writer/Director John Hughes and the charming acting by John Candy. 

The quote I chose to draw was from close to the end of the film. If you're a fan of the movie, you know exactly what this is referring to:

Movie Quotes 01


Simply put, I love movies.
My wife gave me the idea to take some of my favorite quotes from movies and create a sketch of the quote, more of a literal interpretation when the quote is taken out of context.
This quote comes from quite possibly my favorite Marx Brothers movie, Animal Crackers

Monkey Boards

A few years ago, I took a storyboarding class. One of the assignments was to create a character and a situation for him/her to be in. I just found these panels and designs recently, but I can't remember exactly what the situation I came up with. I think it was about a trained circus monkey on vacation in the wild and then realizing he has to go to the bathroom, but has never done so outside of civilation (or something like that)

Early Memories

I had sketched this awhile back. I was considering making a series of sketches of some of my earliest memories. This sketch is actually one of my first, if not the first memory I have. I was two weeks away from turning 4 years old and my brother Bob (Bobby) was just born. My Grandma took my older brother Paul and I around the hospital, so we could see my brother in the maternity ward. As a reward for our good behavior, we each got a matchbox car. I got a red and white Lincoln, which I called my Soupy Sales car because the colors reminded me of Soupy Sales Red Sweater with the white collar he wore underneath.
