SORRY!!! SORRY!!! SORRY!!! For the lack of updates... Between Work, Movin' into a new apartment, the Motor City Con, and a 4 day Migraine from HELL, it's been kinda' hard to post anything on this baby... But, I am back and will have a Grip O' Crap to post... Here's a few things just to start off with...

This is a CD cover I did for a punk band from Vegas back in Janurary of 2000... They went by the name 3rd. Man In... They were a pretty good band, unfortunately they broke up and went their seperate ways... The band was represented by John Robinson of NakedMissingPersons, an old friend of mine... Who asked if I was interested in doin' a cover for their cd and possibly namin' the album... I jumped at the chance, since I had never done anything like it before... The next day I sat at my table stumped for hours... I started to get nervous, and started to clean-up my studio... I came across a bag of balloons and started messin' around with makin' animals (I suck at it), and I felt like the Dr. Moreau of Balloon Animals... I must've made like 15 mutant B.A.s... Then it hit me like a sack of nickels, and 30 minutes later I was done with pencils and inks...Lucky for me, they loved the cover and the name... It was pretty cool to watch people buyin' the cd at a couple of the concerts...



Here's a color version someone did...


And, some Digital Camera TomFoolery... It made me laugh while I was doin' it, so I thought I'd post it...


Well, that's it for this post... Come back for some more Monday, where I will bombard you with loads of Sketch-A-Doodles, tell you about the con...

Later,

Tony

Welcome back! I was about to do a special ops mission to Chi-town to make sure you weren't in the drink singing with the fishes!

Awesome stuff, I've never heard of 3rd Man In, but if John was representing them, they didn't have a chance, HAHA!!! Just kidding, if any of the guys in the band read this, that was a dig on John, not your music...don't hate me, I'm funny!

Post some art soon!

My favorite tune has to be "A Special Kind of Naked". That's Funny!

GOOD!!! I was beginnin' to think that only a couple of my friends and I thought that The Latin Lover Album was funny... It was a bit scary, cuz' I didn't want to be one of those people that think everyone around me thinks I'm hilarious, and be way the fuck off base... Anywho, thanks for all of the comments Tony, Marls, Steve... Compliments are nice, but they are that much Sweeter when I respect the people with the positive feedback...

RAWK!!!
