Learning Cartoon Illustration

One of my goals for this year was to start learning cartoon illustration, and this weekend I decided to take the first step towards that endeavor.

I really didn’t know where to start, so I started with a Internet search.  After reading up on some suggestions and looking at examples, I decided to give it a try.

After a few really bad attempts, I drew the following without using a pencil sketch.  (I was sitting with my kids, and we only had Crayola markers.)

Then, I did something I never thought I’d ever do.  I drove to Best Buy and purchased a Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch Pad.

Oh, yeah.  I think I’m going to like this new toy.

2010 Goals

I’m planning for 2010 to be the most disciplined year of my life so far. Rather than planning for big ministry or family breakthroughs, I’m going to commit to daily and weekly disciplines that I believe will pave the way for those other things to happen too. This isn’t a new thing for me, but this year I’m branching out to include some new areas.

To aid me in this process, I’ve documented each of my 11 goals (for accountability). For the first time, I’m also going to journal my food intake and try to lose 10 lbs with the aid of an awesome free website called DailyBurn.

You can see a few of my resolutions below as well as the main screen from DailyBurn running on my iPhone.

What about you? Have you set any goals for 2010? If so, I’d love to hear about it.
