Loosenin' Up

These are quick doodles to keep the hand warm. Some folks have asked if I could show my process in approaching my drawings and designs. I'm planning on doing a few series of sketches (hopefully in the next week or two, if my schedule permits) which show just that.

Right now, I'm in the middle of an allnighter. Got "GoodFellas" on the tube on HBO and I'm feeling good. What a great flick!!!!

Serapio Calm said...

Lovely loose drawings! I've got crunching deadlined freelance work too this month. I can't take the all nighters anymore. How do you do it?

Aurelie said...

I really like your drawings! they are so cute (I'm talking about the kids a few posts ago) and expressive (all of them).
Keep posting!

I'm really looking forward to that series of sketches. Good luck on the all-nighter. I've been there many times.

Kmann said...

John, you truly are the king of the all-nighter. We should get you a crown and a cape!

Great work on that top image John. You don't do much stuff in that style. You should, it's great.

good luck staying up all night. Keep the movies rollin'! Back to the Future is my all-nighter flick of choice, try it out...

I’m contacting you per Jean Ann Wright’s recommendation. Jean didn’t have you email address, so I thought I’d try this route. She is currently doing consulting work with me on my animation project. I’m interested in speaking with you about the visual art work needed, which will be part of my pitch Bible. If interested please email me at: Thanks!

John Nevarez said...

To all the brothers and sisters out there, THANK YOU!!!! Your kind words of support and inspiration literally lift me up to reach higher, and I thank you.

St. John,
thank you soo much for all the kind words!! Great blog BTW! Let's see, if I were a ninja, I would fly and kick butt, all the while maintaining a strong sillhouette and line of action.

so good to hear from you. Yeah, I can't take the all-nighters either (getting old!!). My crutch: Venti americanos (4 shots of espresso running thru the veins!!)

Thank you!! Your drawings are AWESOME. Beautiful, strong, fluid, just damn amazing!!!!!!

Patrick P-

Steven Theis said...

Your stuff is just amazing. Your work has (and has been) inspiring me to keep on drawing and to just have fun at it. Can wait to see what else you're gonna show us. Do you think you're ever gonna teach again?

dibumac said...

Waiting for your process pieces here !
