Here's my version of the leaning dude

I guess we'll never know what music he was listening to !
(Another interesting character in the way back from lunch...)

When Stephen and I agreed that this was our mark, we had already passed this guy. So we asked Marcos if he wanted this guy as our mark, and if he had had a look at him. A distracted Marcos asked, "Who? Oh, you mean that guy we passed ... OK." Imagine that, Marcos is so good, he can memorize our mark ... after the fact. We all burst out laughing. And, make no mistake, Marcos nailed him in his memory sketch.

So here's yesterday's guy.
Don't know where he was going, but he sure had something important to do there.


Old Timer

See what happens when you don't pay attention. I couldn't remember what his eyes looked like, but I remembered the furrowed brow. I completely overlooked the fact he was wearing dark sun glasses! After seeing Stephen's drawing, I wanted to kick myself for not remembering.

Today's funny look'n fella


Tuesday, September 20, 2005


We quickly spotted today's character.
Although I had a hard time seeing the features of his face I'll say overall he was the image of total-happiness !

--Marcos Mateu

"Keep On Truck'n" has a new spokesman!

This kid certainly has a "look," right down to his stroll. When Marcos marked him, I burst out laughing. I knew right away he was the one. The irony is this kid has that look where he's very contemporary and hip, but also he could have gone to my high school in 1979!

And ... let there be no doubt, he was wearing new tennis shoes.


This one I drew directly in photoshop.

This week we have a special guest to Sketchclub ... and hopefully a regular contributer. Please welcome, the talented, Marcos Mateu Mestre!!

Marcos joined the Sony Pictures Animation team all the way from Spain and is currently sharing his talents with the Surf's Up crew. Boy, can this guy draw! Go and check out his web site at ...


This poor guy was toiling in the hot California sun when we spotted him. The sketchclub executives decided right away this was our mark!

marcelo really nailed this guy, especially since neither one of us got to look that long.

Another backlot personality here at the Sony Studios. To get the full effect, picture this guy zipping around at about 25 miles per hour on that thing. It made me laugh, he looked like a 12 year old on a tricycle. Mind you, both Stephen and I had about three or four seconds to look and memorize him.

I'm so ashamed! Here Stephen does a wonderful full-bodied, full-colored sketch of this guy, and I have the embarrasing task of posting my Post-it drawing.

Just to let everyone know, Stephen captured every aspect of this guy, I didn't even come close. As a matter of fact, his drawing is so acurate, I'm sure photos of this guy don't look as much like him as does this caricature.

today's discovery.


Friday, September 02, 2005

Marcelo and I were on our way back from sketching, and did'nt spot anyone. Then all of a sudden at the traffic light this guy rode by us. We probably got about a blink of the eye look at him. So this is what I recalled.


This one was a quick one. This guy darted around a corner and rode past us ... in a matter of seconds he was gone. Since he was the most interesting character we had to choose from, I looked over at Steven and asked, "Was that the one?" So, the Sketchclub executives made an on-the-spot decision to take it.

From our fertile memory banks to your eyeballs.
