Mad About Cartoons

Bill Wray is trying to make the transition fine art but is known as a cartoonist, a background painter/ Art director and sometimes animation director. This will be the place he post his ocasional animation and cartooning work and also be a place to bitch or wax sentimentally about cartoons in general. It’s been a love and hate relationship for many years and the long journey may not be quite over.

Super Babies

Here are some babies done for DC comics in a Mary Blair kind of style. First two sketches were the find my way the third nailed it. Below is the final painting. It was an odd job it's super babies for clothing catalogs for babies, but not exactly like Superman or other characters yet kind of like them.

WoW! The cleaned up baby actually has more life to it than the rough baby. It's usually the other way around. (It's certaainly that way when I draw).

Nice work.

I admire your work. I read Hellboy Jr. as a kid and picked up my first issue of Draw! magazine 2 years ago because it had an amazing interview with you in it. Loved the break downs of your process and you also reinstated the closer/darker, further/lighter rule for me. Can't wait to see what gets posted here.

I admired you first as a cartoonist - but came to really love checking out your painting blog.
I never feel I have anything constructive to add except, "Wow! I like this" so I never comment.

But you may get a comment or two from me on the cartoon blog. Oh boy!

There is something in your artwork... even in this little babies: something like "looks nice, didn't it ? but don't dare to look away for even one minute - all hell can break loose or nothing might happen. Wanna try ?!" and then a cute and adorable smile...

this place is a huge goldmine... never before heard about "draw!" magazine - and Mary Blair's style is something I somehow recognize but never had an idea how to look for especially this style. Now I've got a name and everything... thanks people!
