Re-working it again...everything I make these days just seems like crap.

Merry Christmas, everyone.

Take care.

Christmas Socks

Maaaaaan, I’d tell you how long I spent doing just the lineart, but it’s a bummer, so I’ll just say I did it up real quick in between super rad adventures.

I’m trying a more original version of the “Pip, Pip and All That” drawing I did years ago, which was really just copying, so here goes!

Ugh, the color of the pants looks really bad with the color of the rug...

Thanks to anela-sama.

2nd times the charm!

This one was finished in such a rush that I went insane with the stroke. I think that's the biggest (and possibly only) failure about this poster. 

I quite like it. Our second show!

Take care.

The Tillman Entry

Dear Tillman,

Keep being awesome. It seems like it would be an easy thing for you to do. 

Take care.

Better hierarchy!

Real quick here; a small preview of a few of my Pay It Forward 2011 projects...

One on the left is for Carlos; the one on the right is for Melody.

I'll have to take new pictures...both of these are farther along than what you see here. Melody's illustration is actually difficult. I wanted to make her something very pretty but the stuff I usually make is not conventionally pretty. I decided to do a picture of some pastries. 

There's one more in progress...I'll get the new photos up soon!

Take care.

Possible Jezebelles shirts for the next show. The revolver/lipstick combo is getting a lot of positive feedback.

Take care.

Alan Moore scan...

I cared enough to go get this scanned. It involved spending money.

...I kind of love how he looks like a Scandinavian troll. Like a Theodore Kittelsen.

Take care.

Mr. Moore, Mr. Moore, etc. Etc.

I really enjoyed the Nick Cave drawing I did, so I tried to re-create the whole pointillism-in-the-facial-features thing (doing the entire illustration like that would take entirely too long). This is a portrait of Alan Moore. I really like it. I caught on how to control the streams of ink a little too late in the illustration, but I think it's still good.

Take care.

Business card designs for choir! This last one here is the one to be printed (although 1 and 3 are my favorites).

Take care.

Play, my darling, play!

Things were slow for a while; starting to pick back up again. This was, obviously, a birthday card for one of my friends.

Funny story: he lives about 50 minutes away, and I totally forgot to take the card with me! He got a bottle of Johnnie Walker Black and Children of God by Swans, but I didn't grab the card on my way out.

Ah well...

Take care.

Where would I be without you?

Give us a wink and make me think of you!

Take care.

Have you guys read Rice Boy? WHY THE FUCK NOT?!

YEAH, I'M TRYING THIS AGAIN. Digital painting is so difficult for me. But, then again, so is regular painting. I'm not very good...

...but, I feel that this is the closest to the results that I want. I'll get there.

One day.

Take care.

Title goes here...

So, some penguin illustrations for a freelance project and some previews of the Ninjas vs. Pirates pieces I submitted.

I finally achieved my dream of making companion pieces. The hand pictures are really nice I feel; at least conceptually. I also like how the ninja piece turned out kind of psychedelic while the pirate piece was more macabre.

Ninjas vs. Pirates at the Fullerton Art Walk this Friday!

Take care.

I can feel your heart racing!

The show was amazing! I made this lovely poster for it; I got quite a lot of positive feedback for it, so that's awesome.

I'm currently busting my ass to get this second water color done for PIRATES VS. NINJAS at Weavver for the Fullerton Art Walk on July 1st.

I've also got some little penguin illustrations that I need to put up...

Take care.

Sumi Practice

I don't own an actual sumi brush; my local art supply stopped stocking them a few months back, so I did the best with what I've got.

This one turned out surprisingly nice.

Take care.

For the Sake of Revenge

One million WIP shots of Tyr and Fenrir! always, I think I fell short of what I really wanted from this piece. I came close. I think it's pretty obvious I was going for a sumi kind of look.

To those who don't know the story, here it is (as I understand it): Fenrir was one of Loki's sons; a great wolf that grew in such size and strength that the other gods were fearful of his might. They decided that Fenrir had to be chained. The gods forged a chain and were able to wrap it around Fenrir by challenging his strength. Fenrir easily broke the chain and the gods, once again, made a chain. It was twice as big, twice as strong, twice as heavy. Fenrir, once again, broke the chain with ease.

The gods then turned to the dwarfs. The dwarfs fashioned a silky, thin ribbon.
The ribbon was fashioned of six strange elements: the footstep of a cat, the roots of a mountain, a woman's beard, the breath of fishes, the sinews of a bear, and a bird's spittle. It is said that none of these things exist because they were used to make the chain.

Once again, the gods challenged Fenrir's strength, but he was not eager to break such a weak-looking chain. However, the gods kept cajoling him and Fenrir finally agreed. Suspicious of this strange request, Fenrir insisted
that one of the gods place his hand in his between his jaws as a sign of faith. Only Tyr was brave enough to do so. Fenrir was chained, and when he realized that he could not break free from the thin ribbon, he bit off Try's right hand in revenge.

Fenrir was chained to a rock, gagged with a sword to keep him from biting, and sent one mile into the earth. He will remain there until Ragnarok; that day, he will kill Odin, but Odin's son
Vidar, will avenge his father by slaying Fenrir.

Cool story, man.

I wanted to depict Fenrir as more than just a wolf; usually, he's depicted as just a wolf or maybe an unusually large wolf, but beyond that? Nothing too godly. So, here he is as a chimera of sorts.

Take care.

I lost it...

I think I've lost some of the subtleties, and that bothers me. But, visually, this is far more interesting.

Take care.

He needs a name...

Any suggestions?

Working on giving him a fur cape. You know. For a statement.

Take care.

To the Gods of the North...

...I pray.

I want him to look like maybe he got old too fast. That his face is a bit mangled because it didn't heal properly. Like he has done far more than his fair share of fighting. I want him to look like he is aging.

I'm worried that I've flattened the drawing; I gotta get away from working on his face.

In case anyone is wondering, I've based his looks mostly on the guys in Turisas and Gaahl.

Take care.
