Saturday Morning growing up was the one day I really looked forward to every-week. I'd get up to watch cartoons so early my moms would come downstairs and tell me to take my ass back to bed. Id get out my notebook paper and would draw the cartoons while it was on. Thats how i really got into the whole animation thing. Until this day if I'm watching cartoons I'd draw sketches of them while the show is playing. Well Woody woodpecker was my favorite of all times. Not the more common seen version but the crazy cross eyed version. I hated when they changed Woody Woodpecker! Damn you damn you all for changing Woody to that watered down version. Woody Woodpecker was a brash, high-strung woodpecker whose trademark was his staccato laugh, "ha-ha-ha-HA-ha". The character first appeared in the 1940 Andy Panda short, Knock Knock, voiced by Mel Blanc.

The first comic book i ever picked up was Spider-man. I don't remember which issue. I'M NOT THAT BIG OF A NERD! i just remember marvel use to reprint alot of the older spider-man comics and i would always get them form the drug store in my small town. I think they were 50 or 60 cent back then. I really got into spider-man, the cartoon the comics and the toys. Oh man the toys. I remember my mom bought me this spider-man toy that had a light that shined his logo on your wall. He didn't move much but i loved that thing. I'd jump all over the house thinking i was spider-man and whenever anyone came near me my spider sense would tingle and i 'd jump somewhere else. trying to climb walls was the best. lol man those where the good old days.

I been out of it the last few days. Haven't been able to draw anything that looks good. I was surfing the net and came across this photo and thought i'd do a quick sketch of it and try and get out this rut I've been in the last few days. So i pull out the wacom pen and draw and draw and draw until i got this.
I was cleaning out my computer and found tons of folders of model sheets that I've collected over the years form doing animation. Whenever I worked on a new freelance job we would always get copies of model sheets to use for the spots. Most of the time i'd throw them away after i got done but after awhile I'd just hold on to them just in case i needed them again. So I came up with this idea that I'd share them with you guys just in case you ever needed them. I'm not posting in any kind of order just going to grab something and to start off this tuesday is my favorite cartoon on tv Sponge Bob.

Characters & Voices
Stanley/Hammerman - Hammer
Hammerman's Would-be Girlfriend - Susan Roman
We asked nicely – “Please Hammer, Don’t Hurt ‘Em.” But that didn’t stop MC Hammer from relentlessly stomping all over his enemies each week on the animated adventure series Hammerman.
In the fall of 1991, the former Stanley Burrell was too legit to quit showing off his exceptional musical and dancing skills, so he channeled them into a weekly children’s cartoon.
Hammerman told the tale of an ordinary guy named Stanley, a super dope homeboy from the Oaktown, who worked at a kids' recreational facility. Whenever trouble lurked, all Stanley had to do was put on his Magic Dancin’ Shoes and, quicker than you can say “proper,” he turned into the superhero Hammerman.
The dancin' crimefighter's main nemesis was the arch villain Boss Grindenheimer, who did his damage from behind bars via his loyal henchmen. Always looking to promote a positive image, each episode would end with the real Hammer expounding upon the day’s learned lesson, which usually focused on youth-oriented problems like vandalism, drug abuse and gangs.
Hammer believed in the project, lending his own voice to his cartoon likeness, contributing a different song each week, and making sure the character always acted as a solid role model. But after only one season, ABC executives brought down the hammer, canceling Hammerman.
Whenever there's a crime
Some crooks are gonna do time
They all better beware
Cause the Hammerman will be there!
Here's how it started
A long time ago
The legend of the Hammer
And how it began to grow
He was given magical shoes
From a hip-hop motown dude
Together they had power
They stood up for what was right
But Gramps was gettin' old and
He couldnt keep up the fight (right)
So Gramps and his granddaughter
They went out on the road (searchin')
To find a man they knew who could jam
Who was worthy of the load
They met a guy named Stanley (Stanley)
Who was dancin' every night
He helped the kids play every day
His heart was out of sight
So Gramps opened up the bag
And took out the magical shoes
He set them on the ground
And they soon began to groove
The shoes knew at once
They had finally found their man
They hopped right on his feet
And he became Hammerman!
