Yes, I must show off Chigurh’s beautiful face to all of the forums. -sparkle sparkle-

Sorry friendos. 

Page will be up TODAY at 10 am PST. It’s already been uploaded so I can guarantee it. Why the delay?? Why indeed. Just know that ~*~EXCITING NEW THINGS~*~ are on the horizon! Will talk more when it’s all done. But for now, thank you so much for your patience. I feel so fortunate to have so many wonderful, engaging readers. You guys rock and make Cans of Beans what it is today. 

You’re all lovely people, and I hope you have a wonderful day/evening! 

Anonymous asked: Is it even possible to out-creep Carl?

Yes! But you have to be even creepier than Carl. And that’s pretty difficult. 

Page will be up a little later in the day, like around the afternoon PST. Thanks for your patience! :)

Yes! His Gnomon DVDs are fantastic too. I feel like I learn a ton just from watching him draw. 

I don’t normally dedicate a whole Tumblr post to a single art resource, but for this I have to. This is Scott Robertson’s How to Draw book and it’s FANTASTIC. If you’ve ever had trouble drawing vehicles, machines, buildings, and general perspective from your imagination, this book trumps everything. I bought a copy from WonderCon on Saturday and I have never been so pleased with a single art resource book purchase (well, except maybe Scott McCloud’s Understanding Comics). 
This book’s aimed primarily at vehicle-drawing beginners and intermediates and extremely accessible. It makes technical drawing easy to understand and gives you tips on how to practice correctly. Additionally, if you have a smart phone or a tablet, you can download an app and freaking WATCH SCOTT ROBERTSON DRAW RIGHT FROM THE PAGE (Think the Japanese Pizza Hut app with Vocaloids, except with vehicle drawing badassery). 
If a copy exists at your local library, or you’re looking to expand your art resource library, this is indispensable. There’s a reason why it has 82 reviews and a 5-star rating right now on Amazon.
TL;DR: Drawing cars sucks? You need this book.

I apologize for the general lack of talking on my Tumblr! I’ve been not as active on here for some reason. Also because I’ve temporarily moved my living situation and it’s hard for me to concentrate when I first just move in. Happy Easter everybody!
