Michael Herrera Art and Things

Ask me anything   Hi. I'm an artist working primarily in animation. I do storyboards, designs, illustration, and lots of things in between. I've had the great fortune of working at major studios, and now have the great fortune of working from home. Here is where I'll share some of my art and discoveries.

Hello lovely people.  If you happen to be attending the CTN Animation Expo in November, be sure to stop by my booth and say Hello.  I will have some goodies and prints for sale and other such things.  I’ll post some previews of that as I get things ready.  It should be a lot of fun.  Looking forward to meeting you.  I’ll be sharing my booth with the remarkable Tahnee Gehm, creator of Snurffles.

Working from home can be very exciting at times.

I am extremely tired.  That doesn’t explain this drawing.

Today’s squiggle drawing.  What do you think about posting a Gif?  Is it better than the three static images?  Would love to know your thoughts.

Cheers.

Just a parody drawing of Lil Bub I’ve wanted to do for a while now.  Love Bub.

A BIG thank you to the flurry of new followers I’ve seen popping up this month.  I’m discovering a bunch of talented artists and individuals out there.  Hooray!  Sharing is great.  Wooh!  Ok I’m done.

Thank you.

Thought I’d share an example of how I warm up and get loose amidst a day of work.  Often times when I’m storyboarding, and I get stuck, I just doodle on an entire page as quick as I can, and let it flow.  Sometimes the results are a bit bizarre, but it usually does the trick and getting the creative juices flowing again.

Things are getting crazy here.  Posts are slowing down, but fear not!  Good news is I will have a table at CTNX in November!  More details to come as soon as I know them.  Keep an eye out for some exciting things.  Will I have prints for sale?  A sketchbook perhaps?  Maybe even small button like things?  Very possibly yes.
