460* - BEAUTIFUL SUNNY AFTERNOON

SPACEMAN SPIFF, about three feet by four feet, something like that. Black, Red and White oils on canvas. I  started this last fall, and have not had the will to jump back into it, hibernating I guess. But anyhoo, today was so pretty, I had to be outside. I am going to wait for today's paints to dry and will go back in with more white and red, obscure the lines more.



*-somehow I skipped #460 in my post count, so I had to fix it.

462- morning exercise

I made this quick image just so I wouldn't feel unproductive when I get to work. So as I am washing dishes, I can think, "at least I did a little art today." thats all. I will get back to the grindstone after work. Yokes!

461- POOOOOOONG!

The title of this post is meant to be yelled like Kirk yelling "Khan!" I am not a big fan of beer pong, I have played it before and it was fun. I did this flyer, I do like this flyer. I think it is missing something...but I don't have the luxury of time to figure it out.

459- old cartoon cels

I do love that certain ascetic quality real hand painted animation cels have, that slightly tainted yellowing of acetate. the scratches and folds of time on a unwanted bits of stories. Anyhoo, I did the above as a pathetic homage to such attributes, I had this old drawing lying about, and it had no other "home". I recently bought some actual illustration board and actetate to try my hand at making an animation cel. I will post my failed attempt soon. Yokes!

458- gotta get back in the saddle...

Today I finished two more of the snake about town gags, for a total of eight, I would like to get anther ten done. Then chose the best to actually put in the book, we have high hopes for this collection of snake gags. Then I will switch gears to a long form comic, about seventy to a hundred pages, about double my old longest page count of forty seven pages. And hopefully more than double in quality, Yesh! But that story will be so long in the making, it will not make it to see the end of times (cough). Anyhoo, enjoy the lame snake gag!

457- exercise in futility

Sometimes things are over before they start, and when you try to pour some of your heart into them it seems wasted. but if you have a big heart there is always more to pour.

456- astrowolf

this image has no home, i just drew it without any idea what it is or anything. just an image made. it was more of an experiment with looser ink brush strokes, then with flat colors. i am sure this astrowolf will find a home in the milieu of odd balls that live in ndvr comix. i drew it after a strange introspective day. who knows.

455- another sneak preview!!!

This is a sneak preview (another one, i know) of a comic story I am working on. I will post more about it as things progress.

below is the same page without the blurred first panel, I cant decide which panel I like better. I added the tones and paper quality digitally. I did this because I was too afraid of ruining the original page, but now that I am fairly happy with this result. I can continue with my original Idea and add washes to the original. I hope that this entire comic will be done with as little digital help as possible. I really want to build my confidence in washes and brush & ink. There is something so beautiful about the old ways in cartoon art. anyhoo.

GO FORTH AND NDVR!
