493- poster in the works.




I am working on a poster/flyer image for an upcoming benefit show for the bigfoot museum. So I drew this image of the two headliners, Dan P. and Kepi out searching for bigfoot. I started on illustration board, which I have only ever used once. It was magical, such quality, the ink went on flat and smooth. I am really trying to  improve my ink brushwork on foil age and rocks. So this was a perfect excuse to go bananas on it. As for the color scheme I wanted to do something monochromatic, just slight shades of the same hue. Which the hue is exactly is still to be decided. this poster is still not finished, I am going to add a thin border and a sidebar on the right with all the info.

491- paintings or stalling?

I am thinking about selling little paintings from my favorite moments of one of my favorite shows of all time, the simpsons...and some moments from futurama, another fantastic show. but maybe i am just posting this because I was drawing a new comic page, and it looked kinda crummy and I "needed" to step away for a moment. The quotes are for the sinking suspicious feeling that I am stalling. hmmm.  
Hey I will be A.P.E. coming next month. these paintings will be there too.

490- BigWheel concept art

You cannot really tell from this scan, but this drawing was done on vellum and using a different shading technique. A technique that I was and still am unsure of, But that I am still going to practice. I have seen really great results with it, and can't wait to hone my skill with it. Anyhoo, this post seems to be all over that place so I will just end it.

489- turtle piece in progress

as the title says, this is a TMNT drawing still in process. I am thinking about adding a proper cityscape background, maybe all in linework. but i like it so far, maybe black and white would be better. or just way darker with muted colors. stay tuned if you care to see its fate.

I also have been looking at a lot of other artists on the internet lately, there are such good artists out there. kinda intimidating. But all we can do is be the best we can be, and not worry about others. It took me awhile but i figured out that art is not a race against others, just against yourself. this can be applied to most things.

487- SF Zinefest!

I just finished table-ing at the SF Zinefest this weekend, it was a blast. Had a lot of fun talking to people and since its free, we got a great assortment of different patrons. Good show, probably my favorite one I do all year. Got some nice prints and met some great artists. Huzzah!
