BRAINEATER JONES Cartoon (Second Batch of Sketches)

Hey all!  This past weekend our incredible animator Zee Risek sent voicover artist Steve Rimpici and I some more sketches for the BRAINEATER JONES animated series so I thought I'd share them with you now.  (If you never saw the first batch of sketches, check them out here.)

Jones holds his flask with a stylized shadow, I'm guessing from the Venetian blinds in his office

Jones holds Alcibé's birdcage.  (I love the way Jones has his hand in his pocket.  It shows so much of his character without a word.)

The Old Man!  There's so much going on here.  Awesome.

The Big Gorilla with his best friend the dishcloth.

Here's Alcibé, Jones, and the bartender.  I love the size comparison.  Doesn't the barkeep look like he could just wreck up your world?

Jones and a barfly at Hallowed Grounds.  Look at the expression on Jones's face!  Could he look any more like a miserable drunk?  And compare it to the smile on the other guy!  

Jones, the head, and the barfly.

In this one Jones is wearing a hat.  I find it really hard to pick which I like better.
