Hey EveryBody...

I'm tryin' to get better with postin' more often... I'm gonna try and vary it up a bit more... I looked through a bunch of my old SketchBooks, and realized that there's a slew of Old Ass Sketch-A-Roni's that predate my blog... Most of them will never make it on here, mostly cuz' they blow... I mean there is some serious "Suckage" goin' on in those pages... I kinda' feel like that page woulda' looked better with a Coffe Cup Stain, or just left alone... But I digress, some of them still hold up... Like I look at some of it and think, "Man, I'm glad I did that the way that I did it... Shit... I'd do it the same way over again"... And those my dear amigos, will be displayed for Your amusement... Those are the ones I am most proud of... Okay, okay, I'm done... No more BLAH-BLAH-BLAH!!! Onto the reason any of You, come here for in the first place...

So, I'm gonna start off with the first of those Old Sketches... My friend Juan Gomez has a Property that goes by the name "Who? The HEX!"... Head over to my Links-A-Roni section, go to the site, and get lost in His world... While in it's infant state, Juan asked me too play around with some designs for background characters... I thought it was such a cool idea, that I kinda went a little nuts with stuff I came up with... I explored some of His established characters, so I could get into the frame of mind necessary to give Him some cool stuff to look over... This Scarecrow is one of the over flows that I still like... Maybe, I'll play around with it myself...


YAYY!!! I finally remembered to post the "TOASTERHEAD" vector I did ... I posted the sketch a couple of months ago... The sketch came from that part of my SubConcious that should have a security gate with a buzzer to get in... Anywho, I had just sent off a job that I had finished, and needed some Doodle Decompression... I actually used the Illustrator Groove I had goin' on off the last gig, and vectored this guy... I thought I could take a sketch of mine and do a Finished Look to it, like I do for Clients... So, I did... I really like this Character, and I'm lookin' forward to explorin' a new way to effect people who look at my work... OH SHIT!!! I started runnin' at the mouth again, Sorry... NEXT!!!


Aaawww, *Cute Animal Designs ALERT* ... These two Bear Designs were for an online game, that didn't happen... It's a shame really, cuz' all the work ( Which was all Amazin' by the way ) won't go any further... I really had fun designin' these animals, with Creative Direction comin' from
  • Norm Dwyer
  • ... So, now I can post these and share finally... First, we have the Panda Clean-Ups...


    Then we have the Sloth Bear Clean-Ups...


    These guys are some punks that happen to be WereWolves, at least in my head they are... They're not Nomadic Bikers, or Tunnel Dwellers... They are regular guys who happen to be WereWolves, who just want to be left alone... I know, "That sounds BORIN" as HELL"... But if WereWolves exist, then chances are that other creatures, entities, or urban legends exist as well... And they are bound to come across each other, as Exceptional Beings Do... I think...


    That said, I hope You enjoyed the Sketch-A-RONI'S and all my BullShitin'... EveryOne have a Happy Gobble-Gobble Day...

    PEACE!!! I'm Out...

    Those scarecrow sketches are awesome! And they're 3 years old!

    I would love to see a Wizard of Oz pinup Tony style, now that I've seen this. Chock full of flying monkey action!

    Great stuff. Hope you had a great Turkey Day. I stuffed myself.
