The 86th Oscars!

It is time for the Academy Awards and I couldn't be happier. This year, Matt Benyo and I, have been especially busy. We saw all but 2 of the movies nominated. We didn't get around to seeing Nebraska and we chose not to see Wolf of Wall Street because 3 hours of Jonah Hill and Leonardo DiCaprio sounds like hell. Over the past 2 days, I've been working on this. It took me 9 hours. I sketched in pencil and used a Micron in my Moleskin. I wanted to draw someone from each of the movies nominated for best picture. Some of the drawings are good; some aren't, but I'm proud of what I did. Also, Matt Benyo got into the drawing/Oscar spirit and came up with this clever drawing of Elsa from Frozen and said that she needs to win so she can unfreeze the Earth. He's so crazy! Click to enlarge to read the speech bubbles and see the details AND thanks to Matt Benyo for editing the last Oscar drawing/picture because he's so much better at editing than I will ever be.
