i didn't get the Xeric, its okay there is always next time.

Friday, December 12, 2008

now the junk is pouring forth.


i am unsure what that title means exactly.
anyways here is second page of the justice hall intro short story.
it seems i am making headway into a comic making process once again, minus photoshop that is. not that it is that important to begin with, it just helps.
anyway, i am currently working on a rolly-polly comic.

Tuesday, December 09, 2008

now i can bother you once again.


HOT DOG!!!
well hopefully things will be fine for awhile. my computer is up and running its been sick for the last two months, it was touch and go for bit, but it pulled thru so far. now i have a new scanner and no photoshop, which stinks but i will get it again.
Here is the first page of an intro story i did in the last couple weeks, i will post the rest soon. it is intended to introduce the reader to the team, and their enthusiasm for their job and city....for now.
i find out about the Xeric within a week, i am ready for both possible outcomes and am preparing for either.

this is for nick.

hey nick i hope you are reading this and you are okay.
we miss you and think about you often.
i still think of you as a brother and always will.
if you ever want to straighten out your life and sober up, you will always have a home under the oak trees.
a message of some kind would be nice.

one hundred and fifth post: down with W

first off there are too many keys on a keyboard, keys for everything, the everything key. well, that sounds dumb. i saw the movie W last night and it was okay, it was more humanizing than slanderizing, which i like.
i woke up from a nap right now and thought, how nice it would be, to be able to list your daily or even monthly accomplishments and sound impressive when done. i dont think i can do that.

slow and steady...

well i was checking out a comic site and they had an article on this new comic company and their new comic coming out, and it looked terrible. it inspires me and makes me feel awful. inspiration from the knowledge of knowing i can do better and the sinking feeling knowing i don't.
in good news, i just got a reply card from the xeric saying that my comic will be reviewed this November. so here's hoping i get it.
i would post an image of the reply card but my computer is still down.
oh yeah, nick if you are reading this, you should call me. or write.

flash games and paper toys

i really enjoy playing flash games, they are simple and fun. i am not speaking of the punch mccain or obama and win an ipod type games, but the small simple games like RAFT WARS.
I hope i learn how to make something similar in my flash class.
tonight laura and i went to our friends' house in SF, and we had a lot of fun playing jeopardy on the PS2. i made two true daily doubles and would have doubled up on final jeopardy too, if my team wasn't scared. anyways while i was there kristin had a paper toy blog on her laptop and i am now inspired. to be fair i had already been playing with the idea of making a paper pumpkin postcard to send to my friends for holloween. i think i will try to do that!
NOW HERE IS BORIS PICKETT AND...MONSTER MASH!!!

will wheaton seems cool...

which surprised me because i always hated him as wesly crusher.
i recently found that will wheaton has a blog and i find it fascinating, YOU BE THE JUDGE
appearently he lives in the LA area and does voice acting, and he knows a bunch of hollywood types since he has been around a long time.
he also plays alot of role playing games, which is sweet, i really miss DnD. there is nothing like rolling dice and killing monsters.
i think i will continue reading will wheaton's blog.
i sent in my submition to the xeric foundation recently, on their site they state that an application only need be postmarked by the due date, not delivered. since i am a dummy, i decided to send it second rate and it arrived a week later but it was postmarked a day later than needed. they should send a recived on time card soon, hopefully by monday or i will plead my case. that would be fantastic if i got a xeric! but if i dont i will post the comic on this blog.
yesterday i thought of a short story to comicize! more to come on that.
i will see you later.

suffering comes from desire...

happiness,
i have been thinking about my desires and history lately, and for some unknown reason i relate to this page out of my comic.

speaking about my comic i need to send my proposal for the xeric grant by tomorrow or they most likely wont get it by the deadline of September 30th. i hope i get the grant but if i dont it is no great loss, i will survive. the comic on the other hand will probably not be published....in that format. i will try to publish it in pieces as ashcans.

busy with monsters.


i just drew this as i watched a documentry about EC Comics, which was not to bad.
tales from the crypt: from comic books to television.
it reaffirmed my love of monsters, which includes demons of course.

Friday, September 12, 2008

on time..


well its been about two weeks since my last post, and august had a total of three posts! which is three times as many as either 2007 or 2006! i apologize, but i am in school again, hopefully becoming more computer savvy. and i am getting ready to apply to the Xeric award, hopefully to get some money to print my comic.

a flashback for all the nato fans!


Even in his early days as a sidekick, Nato would take time to say hello to the immigrant street urchins that clogged the streets.
This lucky shmuck even got a keepsake photo, which he most likely pawned for booze.

The ill-begotten prince of Baron Von Bloodstein!!


The Prince Von Bloodstein the VII, the rightful successor to the nefarious Baron, and spitting image of his supposed father...or so he claims.

most say he has only a passing resemblance to the evil baron.


*this is a drawing of a minor character in a upcoming comic.*

the post-con revival

comic-con is a daunting emotional-draining spectacle, but it can also be a inspiring site of camaraderie. it was both for me this year, but the uneasiness of not knowing where my art/comic lives in this community is the most predominate feeling that remains. its like being reset to step one every year, only the for the fact that the idea of "doing your own thing" kept reappearing throughout, do i remain.
as for the hollywood invasion of comic-con i could not care less at this point.
so i think i am fully recovered from my comic-con days and am ready to march on.









post script(blog): i do find it humorous that i am 'blogging' to only a handful of my friends.

sigh....


here is a drawing of Nightwing of DC comics fame. i spent all day trying to draw him and this was one of the only decent drawings that came out. his head is too big i tried to draw him ascending a staircase, probably should have drawn the actual stairs. i have about 24 days to get some decent samples for comic con, yikes.

swoosh! gone.


after the battle, the young sidekick, upstart, finds a mysterious piece of alien techno-junk. somehow his playful fingering activates its power. swoosh! upstart disappears....one year later, swoosh!
he reappears in what is now a bookstore, but upstart is no longer a young sidekick but a time ravaged old wanderer...

this drawing has been sitting on my table for awhile now, i finally inked and i like it. hence it being posted.

hey there folk(s?),

Friday, June 06, 2008

still at it.


this is a bad photo of the first page of a Captain Neutron comic i am working on, i apologize for the photo but i am not a photographer. my terrific nephew bought me one of those "make-a-comic pack" at an art store and i decided what the hell...
so now on official comic paper i am doing a Captain Neutron story that i has been rolling around my head.

the mysterious knob...


this is one of my oldest characters, as you can probably tell by the name,"the knob".
he is the closest one will come to cosmic in my little comic, cosmic comic...hmm.
i created in high school without really knowing anything about him, but like five years after his initial creation, the good Nick Physics gave him a story. which we hopefully be revealed sometime soon, in a mind-blowing NDVR story!

a crawling claw..


a small painting, about 3 by 3 inches, of a seemingly severed hand.
i was just playing with skin tones and acrylic on cardboard, which is excellent if you have not ever tried it.

a late night drawing.


i was up late last night just drawing and i came up with and idea to do a painting, of one of my characters parading through the woods with some crazy overweight animals. this is the first serious study of one of the animals, a moose with a stick.
i hope more are to follow. i will try to post most stages of the painting process and hopefully that will persuade me to actually finish it.

the polls are in and the winner is..


the amorous abe wins in a landslide!!
as he should, take that wooden teeth.

ant-stonishing!!


here is a tiny painting of my favorite tiny superhero, the ANT-MAN.
the genius doctor henry pym builds a communication helmet to talk to ants but can only think of a catapult to transport himself into action, brilliant. on his arrival to the crime scene a local grouping of ants build him a pile to land upon, not a rocket pack or a parachute he lands in a pile of ants.
oh the golden age.
