Secret City

I may have learned to draw by tracing comics, but Commander Mark made me the master-drawer I am today.



The guy was actually pretty great. He dealt out a lot of fairly advanced drawing concepts, but he did it a little at a time, so you never got lost. He'd show the occasional art history slide (accompanied here by the music right after the opening cutscene from a Super-Nintendo shooter), along with the occasional weird-ass plot point (4:55).

More here.

Woah! That is fascinating! There sure wasn't any of that gritty practical put-it-in-words kind of layout shit when I did 2D design!

D00d, Commander Mark saved my brain during the most boringest days of summer when I was in my mid teens. I definitely felt too "mature" to watch his show, but at the same time, I loved his style and his energy too much to care. What a fool I was for being embarrassed to watch this.

Wow...looking back at these episodes makes me realize how responsible This show was for the creation of the Workspace door, which I am sad to say I no longer seem to have a picture of. I would love to find a picture of that door. I remember my partner and I had planned to steal it from the building when we closed shop. Ah well.
