Del Griffith - Planes, Trains, and Automobiles

Del Griffith, played by John Candy, is one of my favorite characters from any movie. If you have seen Planes, Trains, and Automobiles you may just agree.

Week 3: Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Ferris Bueller's Day Off - Ben Stein as the Economics Teacher

Here are some audio clips:

Bueller?... Bueller?... Bueller?... Bueller?...
Anyone know what this is? Class? Anyone? Anyone? Anyone seen this before?

Career Vacation Opportunities

Okay, I had to do this one of Jennifer Connelly riding one of those mechanical horses from the movie "Career Opportunities".

Wow there are some really great post up this week. I chose to do Vacation as it's one of my favorite "Non-Star Wars" movies. My dad is Clark W. Griswald and every vacation I ever took ended up the same way this movie did: hillbilly relatives asking for money, dog-piss sandwiches, moose punching and of course a recently deceased relative whose death was mistaken for a nap. And why was that girl in the Ferrari always following me?

Week 3: Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Well, this isn't a scene in the movie but it is the premise of it.

Ferris: Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it.

Week 3: The Breakfast Club

 You see us as a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal.
Correct? That's the way we saw each other at seven o'clock this morning.
We were brainwashed.

John Hughes, "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles"

A scene from one of my favorite movies. Never fails to bring tears to the eyes.

Week 3: Weird Science

I’ve been meaning to experiment with acrylics for a while and well here it is. Not entirely happy with it but, it is what it is. I scanned it to show the richer colors.

Some detail of the room is accurate - the Talking Heads poster to the right of the door that is ripped, the LIFE board game that they hook the Barbie up on to create "Lisa", the green boobs on the monitor, the Frankenstein movie playing, a bra on the floor because when they clicked 'enter' both the bra's on their heads flew off and of course Kelly LeBrock or “Lisa” in the door way. The rest is just made up… :o)

Created it with a 5 color acrylic set (blue, red, yellow, white and black), #3, #6 and 1" size brushes and some sponges on 8.5 x 11 cold press illustration board (I know hot press warps less, but cold is all I got).

This is my initial sketch; the thought was there at least...

John Hughes, "Weird Science!"

Lisa.....We can't have him like would ruin Christmas.

John Hughes' "Uncle Buck"

Not much explanation needed here. Uncle Buck is a classic.

Buck: Did you brush your teeth?
Miles: Yeah. You can even feel my toothbrush.
Buck: You know, I have a friend who works at the crime lab at the police station. I could give him your toothbrush and he could run a test on it... to see if you actually brushed your teeth... or just ran your toothbrush under the faucet.

John Hughes, "Weird Science!"

Come on, you all know I had to do this one first. If only this could really happen right?
