Marty as a Jesus Figure

So lately this blog has been slow. It probably should be called "Your-every other weekly-future-sometimes". Sorry about that. I've sorta been busy. But I've found some time and a renewed enthusiasm for drawing so don't worry. And just to prove to you that I mean it, here is the first drawing from Back to The Future II!

Hoverboards don't work on water? That confuses me. Don't the laws of magnetic fields work thru water? Why wouldn't they? I need to consult a science teacher! Despite the whole water debacle, Marty is a pretty skilled Hoverboard operator. Who knew that mediocre skateboard skills would translate so well.

So after I drew this last night I made some decisions. I think this time around I am going to do my drawings sequentially. So starting tomorrow, expect to see the first scene. And then on Tuesday the second scene. Etc... So that should be fun. Consider todays drawing a teaser.

I like to write in my journal.

Alright, here we see Marty composing a letter to future Doc. The envelope says 'Don't open until 1985' But apparently Doc thought the envelope read 'tear up upon receiving'. Doc might be illiterate. I hope Marty didn't slip a twenty in there! The next envelope I receive I am ripping apart. Forget you BGE!

Marty's legs look funny.

Does anybody know any Ricky B jokes.

Oh boy. Marty and Biff are about to throw down in the cafeteria. That's grounds for immediate suspension. Luckily principal Strickland is there to put out the fire. Doesn't this guy have an office?

Biff needs to learn better coping skills. He is completely unequipped to deal with his emotions. I only see bad things in his future. Either a life of crime or a life a menial labor.

In this drawing Biff is much smaller than Marty. Again that is just perspective. I am a good drawer. I passed a correspondence course.

Sorry, I am not being funny. I am saving all my funny energy for something else this week. Does anybody know any Dave Myers jokes?

Under-Calculations of Time.

Welcome back! To the future! This is a drawing of Marty in side of the Delorean. He's all upset that Doc wont listen to his warnings about the future. But wait Marty you have a time machine, you have all the time in the world! Ten minutes ought to be enough! Ten minutes? You're trying to save your friends life, and you think ten minutes is enough time? You have all the time in the world, but ten minutes out of infinity is all that Doc Brown is worth to you? Marty, you're an idiot. That's not enough time! I would have gone back at least twelve minutes early.

In this drawing Marty's left arm is much smaller than his right arm. That's because of your optical perspective, not because I can't draw.

Does anybody know any jokes about David Andler?

Forgivonuss Please.

This drawing is multi-leveled! I mean Marty is down some stairs. I don't mean that the drawing is deep with meaning. However if your picking up some hidden depth, please let me know about it.

Is setting the carpet on fire when he was eight really the one sin the that Marty wants to be obsolved of? He never did anything worse than that? Things like that don't even count when you are eight! Accidents happen. Am I right? He should have brought up something that happened in his teenage years. "If your youngest child ever gets four tardies in a row, go easy on him" or better yet he could have planned some future mishap to get forgiven for once he gets back to 1985! "If your youngest son ever gets into a brawl at a pool hall when he's 17, go easy on him."

Why is George wearing a giant collared shirt like a 19th century Dutch school boy? Oh yeah, I can't draw! Did you know they made a sequel to BTTF? That's what people in the industry call a teaser.

This easy chair doesn't look to easy.

Good morning. Doc Brown has issues. Future boy Marty has just laid the whole time travel story on Doc, and he flips out. He runs from Marty, sits in front of the fire place, and starts talking to a picture of Thomas Edison. If I am Marty and I am relying on this guy, I am not reassured.

Some times when I am having trouble drawing I talk to a picture of Charles Schulz. If that doesn't work I think of two squirrels wrestling. Then I giggle. Squirrels are crazy!

I wish I could draw characters the same way every time. It just doesn't happen. I try though. This particular image of Doc Brown is actually my high school English teacher. He's getting ready to throw this portrait of Edison across the room because it doesn't meet his standards.
