So, I am gettin' over one Helluva' Cold/Flu that knocked the Livin' Doo-Doo's outta' Me, and I remembered that I haven't posted anywhere for a minute. And since I'm tryin' to get better at Postin' on a regular basis, here's a Big Shout and Hug for My Gramps who Passed Away 2 years ago today. He's still Awesome to Me.

I Miss You Gramps.

Oh, and some art.


Here are some character designs and pencilled pages for another short story that I'm workin' on with
  • Rafael Nieves
  • . It's a Fun story, I'm lookin' forward to finishin', soon.

    These first 2 pages, I was tryin' to get a feel for the Ice Cream Man/Hero and His Ride. As You can see, I tried a few different looks for him.

    The next 2 pages have sketches of the Villains/Bullies, their Muscle car, and the Girl who gets caught in the middle of all the action. I'm goin' to have to trim down the look of the bullies, as it's way to hot to be wearin' a sweater and boots. Well, maybe I'll keep the boots.

    Here are the pencils for the pages as they stand right now (There's more to come). The pencils are very tight and after any revisions, might stay pencilled. I think I might just clean it up a bit in PS and throw some hues on it ala "Header" style. Still tryin' to figure that out as well.

    Goodbye 2009!!! And I Hope You Burn In HELL!!!

    Yeah! That's how I Feel about the last year. But I don't want to get into that. I do However, want to put some random Art I've done beyond the Webcomics, You should all be followin' religiously. They are as follows.

    I have spent a considerable amount of time down at My friend's Krista and Halen's house this passed year. And they have 2 beautiful little girls. They are Hailey, a 4 year old Force of nature who will probably be My boss someday. And Madeline, the latest addition to their family. Now, Hailey has taken a real Shine to Me lately, and has wanted to draw and color with me whenever I stop by. As I mentioned before this kid is going to be controlling Your kids someday. I'm makin' that prediction right here, right now. She is only interested in a few things right now on a consistent basis. Hannah Montana, Noggin, and Tinkerbell. Everything else only sates an occasional curiosity. Sorry, I didn't mean to ramble. But she likes art time with Me, and I think that's Cool. Which leads to this Goofy-Ass lookin' Bear. I haven't actually used a crayon to draw in a really long time. But she was in the mood to use those, and one does not trifle with Hailey. But I digress, I like the sketch. Enough to put it here at least.

    This one is from another Sketch Session with Hailey. I asked Her what kind of character She would like. She says a Fox. So I began what became a collaborative piece with Hailey, (You'll notice the fire burnin' on top of the Foxes head.). Once I was done, I asked what the Fox's name was and She looked at Me with a Quizzical look on Her face and asked Me what I thought it should be. I blurted "Foxy McBootiepants"!!! She Giggled and gave Me the go ahead. The next time I saw Her, I asked if Foxy has a Buddy. She looked at Me like, "Yeah! A Butterfly!" I thought, "SHIT! I Hate Drawin' Butterflies!". What I said was, "Whaaaat? For real? A Butterfly? Cool! ". And I Smiled. I haven't actually drawn the Butterfly yet, but I'm convinced She's having Me design the characters for some future tv hit, that She'll take credit for.

    This was a Wolverine commission sketch I did for Len and Susan Kody's friend Ed. I miss the Ol' Canucklehead throwin' down with the Hand Ninjas. So I had fun doin' this one up.

    * By the way, if anyone is interested in a commission sketch, send Me an email.

    At Chicago Comic Con 2009, This other guy wanted a quickie commission sketch from Me, so I asked Him what He liked. He said "Uh, Spiderman, Kermit the Frog,-". I told Him He could stop right there. I knew what I was goin' to do immediately.

    OH! And if You haven't been keepin' up with the webcomics, "Shame on You"!

  • "Lab Bratz"

  • "Chicago 1968"

  • So I know I missed gettin' this up for the 1st day of 2010, and I always say I'll try and post more, and Blah-Blah-Blah.


    Here it goes.

    I will do My best to blow Your Minds. Whether it makes You Laugh, Cry, or Angry. You'll come back. After I'm done typin' this, I will stand-up, strike the most Heroic Pose I can muster at this ungodly hour, then hit the publish button.
