a little break for a photo op.

i am busy inking BurnBeetle two, and needed a break from all the fiery action so i decided to explore a dream crossover idea...maybe i will make another one page dream scene.
like mummymobster and Klaw go to the mall.

HI

Its December and we are getting close to the end of the year, and this blog is getting close to its 300 hundredth post. For me that seems completely ridiculous, as I cant believe I have stuck with my "art" blog for so long. My usual modus operandi is to get excited about something and slowly wane out of it. Yahoo for me, Yahoo for art!
so whats your favorite post of the year?
and what should be the 300th post be?




if you leave a comment I will give you a prize...of some sort.

second wind


hi, so yesterday i got totally beat by the workday, when it was finally over i was exhausted. but that allowed me to just sit back and relax and do nothing, so thats exactly what i did. nothing. And this morning i woke up refreshed and ready to get beat on again.

digital color & frustration


So, being an artist is complete self-inflicted torture, it reminds me of a thought i heard about unrequited love, "..its like banging your head against a wall thats not really there." the frustration one feels is beyond my talent as a writer to describe, its wholly disintegrative of one's self esteem. i am unsure if the frustration is a result of doubt or its the reverse. but those two are as thick as thieves in the ebb.
i drew and colored this goblin image yesterday and already i completely dislike it, i am tempted to erase it, but then half of this post title wouldn't make sense. its hard to understand this mentality, like you are always on the cusp of the flow. so near the breakthrough, you just can't wait. as an artist you constantly have these little blocks and breakthroughs, you think i would be used to it, but i doubt one ever gets used to it. no wonder why van gogh ate his paint.

i wanted something minimalist.

two hundred and eighty posts...and this is all you've come up with?!


sigh, another cover image.
this one is of the third issue of the short lived "'TOON GANG" comic, as you can see the artist is heavily influenced by one carl barks, but doesn't have the talent to pay proper homage.
one thing of note of this ill-fated series is the exclusion of captain neutron, who the producers thought was too "stiff" for the kids, and they are probably right. he was replaced by "tempo", a ballad singing slapstick horse. another thing of somewhat note is that although black beetle was part of the fun gang, he was almost never shown, out of the two dozen issues he has but a handful of stories. the most notable ones are "the beetle and the x-mas bot!", "hooray for the navy!", soon followed by "black beetle joins the navy."
i will try to find a good scan of black beetle in navy uniform.
and yes i know i am crazy.

sigh, oh comics, how i love you.


I wonder if this cover would exist nowadays in the comic biz?

the more you know...


...the more you realize how messed up this world is, or rather the fantastically terrible things people do.

"deal with it."


Okay, so yesterday I had a really lousy day at work and to make an otherwise crummy story short, it was just plain awful. And when I finally got off I had to stop by an unnamed superstore. Working at this store was this tiny completely uninterested clerk named Taylor. Usually at this type of store the clerk will try to pass the time by socializing or at least putting on a face to seem like they don't loathe their job. not Taylor.
So, I say, "good for you Taylor!"
why try to keep up pretenses.

DELUSION RUN AMOK!!

Hello out there!

tonight, me and my creative partner nick spoke on the phone and the creative ndvr-juice flowed free! we hammered out some important story components and fleshed out some exciting new ideas! there is nothing more exciting than a new hero!
i really needed this refresher as my ndvr juice grew increasingly stale, all because of the "joys" of work. sigh.
anyways i feel like i am back on the right path to comic obscurity.
so, we created a bunch of crummy heroes until we hit the correct cosmic harmony and created the fantastic hero below!
being the great innovators of the medium we are, we also thought of a fantastically awesome name for such crown gem in the ndvr treasury. but being the giving, fan-appreciating comic company you have come to love we decided to let you give this immortal hero his eternal moniker!!
that's right fans, you name the hero!!
as merciful as we are we will give you some bits of information on our hero;
he's young and hip, he is ndvr after all.
he is a fan of dinosaurs, pterodactyls to be specific.
he is brave and brash,
HE'S ...(insert name)
after we have sorted through the piles of responses we will compare it to our equally terrific name, and may the best name win!!

BE BOLD AND GO FORTH!!!

a very unanticipated sneak peek.


So as the title states, this is a sneak peek(cough) of the upcoming comic.
when we talk about the future here at ndvr sometimes i think we are just crazy...

recently i heard that practicing something for around ten thousand hours will make someone great or genius at that chosen something.
today i would gladly trade my devoted hours for something else.

okay i am not numbering my posts any longer.



i just dont know what should be numbered and what shouldn't.
here is a goofy cover idea for the upcoming nano comic.
which is just a mini-comic, but we decided to call them that to fit our theme of cosmic/surreal science fiction adventures.

249- "in the ebb."


hello,
so as an artist, i do dare call myself one these days. simply because i have no choice in the matter, but i digress. so as an artist i tend to fall into doubt quite often, doubt in skills and in life in general. today was one such time, as you can probably tell by my not-so subtle "drawing". i quote drawing as i for some reason have a hang up about drawing on a computer. for me it always seems to turn out more painterly than it feels like organic drawing. it does please me but is not as gratifying as pencil-in-the-hand drawing. but who am i anyway to judge that.
drawing has always been my true escape, no matter what i am waiting for or how i am feeling drawing is there. wait, thats not exactly true, sometimes drawing abandons me, it leaves me with no spirit to drive the lead. frozen on pristine blank paper with magnified texture awaiting my flash of inspiration, there i sit waiting and it never arrives. drawing is fantastic! like anything it ebbs and flows.
back to that.
so i am in an ebb, a downslide, a doldrum, a funk. they usually last a couple of days but i think this one is already washing away.
mercifully short, knock on wood.
i started typing this post with the intention of expounding upon my state of despondence, but my shallow mind has let it drift away into the ether.
so, this was all for not.
unless, the combination of electronic drawing and typing aimlessly on a blog has had some cathartic effect.
