9/19/10   OK, so I'm actually posting this on the 20th because I just was so tired from working on this job last night that I completely forgot about the doodle of the day. I'm animating Carol Channing in Al Hirschfeld style and I love getting into how he draws! Here are a couple practice drawings copied from a couple of his. It looks like Mr. Gleason finds Carol as annoying as I do!
