Cleo


This is a sketch I did last year that evolved into a kind of contemporary Cleopatra-inspired character. I don't know what she is so ticked off about, maybe she didn't get a valentine...

Nice asp.

Will, is it true that there was bad blood between Disney's Feature Animation and Television Animation divisions as "DishRoom1" claims at

Great girl drawing, Will! I haven't gotten the hang of drawing the better sex yet, but I hope to someday.

The Zero Mostel and Campbell Grant history lessons are an added bonus too!

Will Finn said...

Bill- nicely phrased.

John P, I can only speak for myself, and for my part no. I freelanced for a lot of DTV projects (GUMMI BEARS, RESCUE RANGERS) before and after getting hired at features. I also did a little work on the first ALADDIN direct-to-video and I know Eric Goldberg did some work on another. There may have been some friction but it wasn't unanimous. I stay outta chat room feuds as a rule.

Thanks Chris. I have more Campbell Grant stuff to scan soon.

Nice drawing, Will! Maybe she's mad because she expected Caesar to get her flowers, chocolates or a cat for Valentine's Day instead of an asp. So greedy.

I can't draw girls for jack. All of the girls I draw look like very ugly men with eyelashes. I'm learning bit by bit in my Drawing classes here at SVA, but hopefully I'll get the hang of it sooner or later. I'm extremely envious of people who can draw pretty girls, but maybe I can learn a thing or two from them myself.

Cool drawing Will. Keep up the good work.

What's she gonna do with the snake?

Pete Emslie said...

Cute drawing, Will. Though Cleo has no Valentine to snuggle to her bosom, perhaps something serpentine may do the trick...

Will, great stuff. I'd recognize your work anywhere. I check often for new "Fossil Fools"... but understand your busy-ness!

Hey Bullblog said...

Hi Will.
I really appreciate your work.
This girl is very nice.
Fantastic stuff in the blog.

Will, Cleo is too well drawn 'cause now I'm in love with her :(

Perhaps she is about to commit suicide! Don't die, cute babe Cleo!
