another weird tree picture

A recent watercolor. The sad thing is, I have a shirt just like this.

doodle dump

Here are a couple of pages from my sketchbook, pages with robots and sweaty people. I like robots.
The weird machine thingy on the left page was inspired by Fletcher Hanks, with the title "In the presence of robot scientists" directly taken from a line of dialogue. Fletcher Hanks is still my current comic obsession, he was just so dang WEIRD!! Happy Holidays to all!

Statues and Trees

Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving. After regaining consciousness from my pie induced coma I finished coloring this odd fellow above. What's the significance? I dunno, I think it's about the nature of conformity or something.

latest doodles

More sketchbookery shenanigans. I recently bought the Fletcher Hanks collection "You Shall Die By Your Own Evil Creation" so the weird muscle dude on the right page was inspired by Stardust. That is seriously one twisted and awesome book, highly recommended! I also posted a new cartoon ever on the Heeby Jeeby blog, so go check it out NOW!!!! Thanks folks!

A silly little painting I did for a recent commision. I haven't painted in quite a while so it was fun to get back into it.

Turkey From Hell

I found this while going through some old drawings and felt it was appropriate for a post Halloween, pre Thanksgiving post. Apparently this is what happens when I get hold of an old cookbook and given a free afternoon. I also find the caption to be oddly fitting.

doodley doo!

Howdy folks! I've been happily swamped with cartooning assignments and commisions the past few weeks, but sadly have let the blog go dormant yet again. But finally got around to scanning more sketchbook pages, huzzah!
The page on the left has character designs for my 24 Hour Comic I posted last, and the page on the right has designs for a character that will soon appear in something I can't discuss just yet. But soon!

The sweaty bearded dude on the left page is partially inspired by a cartoonist friend of mine. If he's reading this blog, he knows who he is. Hopefully everyone has an awesome Halloween, and look for a cool announcement soon!

24 Hour Comic

This past weekend I participated in the 24 Hour Comic Book Day challenge. The goal is to simply create a 24 page comic book in 24 hours. I finished 12 pages before I thought I was going to either pass out or stab myself with my pigment liners. Keep in mind that the event took place in a comic shop, so a lot of time was eaten up by browsing. The comic I did finish is an homage to the brilliant Fleischer brothers and makes about as much sense as their cartoons. I gave myself 2 restraints just to make it even harder (a bad idea); I didn't plan out ANYTHING until I started drawing it, and I didn't use any dialogue. Against my better judgement, here are the results:
That $2 is a joke. It's worth is immeasurable.

My favorite page. It actually ended up on the local news (no joke).

Only God knows what the next 12 pages will hold, but rest assured if they ever get drawed, they won't make any sense either.

new sketchbook pages

Well after disappearing for a whole month, my sketchbook returns to the internet (huzzah!). After working a 40-50 hour a week job, getting artwork done for various gallery shows and working on a tv show (more on that later), I've sadly neglected my poor lil' blog. Hopefully I can post more often on October, Halloween always gets me inspired to draw weird ghosts and monsters.

I started doodling with a mechanical pencil again and forgot how much fun it was, I love using the blending stump to add quick shading.

The fellow on the left page is proclaiming one of the things I hate to hear people say the most.
For some reason I scanned these pages in grayscale. Whatever.

The page on the left turned into a drawing I tried to get done for a gallery show but turned into one of those pieces that I couldn't belp but make more complex as I went along. Needless to say the finished drawing will be done by the time Obama leaves office.

Barfing cartoon characters, hilarious during any occasion.

My attempt at drawing some sort of Dick Tracy inspired gangster on the left. And then more weird stuff.

Well if I don't get anything else posted for ANOTHER month, everyone have a fun Halloween and don't forget to watch "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown", my absolute favorite holiday cartoon. Thanks for lookin' folks!

doodles & stuff

Well after ANOTHER long delay I finally managed to fill up my latest sketchbook and start on another, I'm getting a sizeable collection at this point. I've also been busy with completing some drawings for 2 upcoming art shows I'm involved with, as well as a top secret project I can't really talk about just yet. All I'll say is that my obsession with Jim Henson has proved helpful ;0)
After watching the awesome "Inglourious Basterds" I was inspired to draw Hitler, who I think we can all agree already looks like a stupid cartoon character.

Not sure what my latest obsession with ghosts and robots is all about, but hey, I guess I'll just go with it! At least they're sweaty.

I decided to share a couple of pieces that will be featured in the previously mentioned art shows. These pieces were inspired by, well, not really sure to be honest. Let's just say they're bold statements about social class differences in our current economic climate.

I will be sure and post more info about the art shows shortly, both of these pieces are for sale so get the credit card ready! Bye for now, thanks folks!

latest cartoon idiocy

Well well well, after quite a long break I finally got around to posting more sketchbook pages, sorry about the long hiatus! I bought one of those fancy pocket brush pens that the awesome Bob Flynn blogged about and have had a blast using it. Most of these new pages have drawings using this pen, some better than others as I tried to get used to it.

I guess when you want to yell but don't know what to yell, just yell YELL!

I just noticed that on the rare occasion I draw a happy character, the character looks insane. Whatever.

I seriously have no idea what that monstrosity os on the top left of the page, but it really weirds me out.

Once again, thanks to all the really cool folks that stop by my silly little corner of the internets, I promise to post more frequently! See ya!
