Oh my god, it’s happening! I’m in a book! Not just any book but the Office BFFs book from Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey. Jenna reached out to me, or more accurately slid into my DMs, last year to do some brand new pieces for the project as well as include some of my classic JAM art. My answer was an enthusiastic, immediate “Yes!”
The first piece was of the rooftop “date” scene in the season 2’s “The Client”. Those lawn chairs just about did me in but it was worth the tediousness. A friend said you can hear that vinyl chair Jim is in.
Second piece was a challenge, a scene of Pam’s coal walk in season 3’s “Beach Games”. I was unsure how to even depict this scene and how I’d arrange it, and that’s not mentioning the challenge of getting a good clear screenshot to work with. The real key was to capture the look on Pam’s face before she ran, a look both determined and playful, and I hope I did at least that.
The third piece was added later, a depiction of Angela singing “Little Drummer Boy” with Dwight holding the microphone in season 3’s A Benihana Christmas. I’ve drawn a lot of JAM that I’m very familiar with their faces and the colors used but Dwangela was brand new territory. This scene also had challenges like Angela’s insane floofy blouse and that little Schrute Smirk. In the end this might be my favorite piece, especially paired with Angela Kinsey’s recollection of how she was so nervous to sing until Rainn Wilson dropped to his knee and helped her find and keep the rhythm.
All these pieces and more are Office BFFs, and of course if you want prints I have them up in my RedBubble Shop. Thanks so much to Angela and Jenna for including me in this, you made this Office Flan’s heart soar with the eagle’s nest!
The next piece in my PB&J series is from Ep 213 “The Secret”. Tried something a little different with the panels, and I like how it came out.
Had some fun with this one and made a gif as well.
I have a lot of love for ep. 211 “Booze Cruise” and I wanted to do justice to the equally lovely and heartbreaking 27 Seconds of Silence scene. I played around with all sorts of layouts, but I decided to stitch together a bunch of frames to get my reference. I also decided to try out doing a background on a different paper and putting it together in Photoshop. I’ve already fussed around a lot with the background version and probably will more in the future, but it’s presentable.
That’s right, more PB&J! I really love this scene from ep 207 “The Client” where Jim and Pam share earbuds and
dance sway to a song, one of the great “little moments” that they had.
The background was drawn on a separate paper and added in digitally, and I really like the result! Here’s the no background version (which I also like)
The next installment of my PB&J series is a scene from ep203 “Office Olympics.” I decided to add the doves and I think it turned out to be a nice touch. Also incorporating more Polychromos pencils with my Derwent Drawing pencils.
My Jim and Pam series continues! This is from Season 2 Episode 2, and is one of my all-time favorite PB&J moments. Derwent Drawing Pencil (with a little Faber-Castell Polychromos mixed in) on Strathmore Toned Tan paper. I even blurred it to look like the scene!
Here’s the regular version.
More PB&J! This is of course from ep 201 “The Dundies”. I may continue to draw more top season 2 moments, or maybe venture to other Office stuff, we’ll see! (prints available)
I was a huge “Office” nerd back in the day and some recent Netflix marathoning reminded me I’m still a big Office nerd. Also the show started 10 years ago, so I thought this would be fun as a kind of anniversary thing. So here’s Jim and Pam from ep 102 “Diversity Day”. I was kinda thinking about a “Top Season 2 Jim and Pam Moments” series, we’ll see if that pans out. (prints available)
I posted this as a project but I’m not sure what shows up where when you post a project verses a blog post, so here it is as a post! I recent marathoned Netflix’s Daredevil and liked it a lot, also I guess I’m a bit of a “Clairedevil” fan. This drawing is graphite and charcoal on gray-toned paper, with a screenshot of the show used for reference.
