Worlds Finest W.I.P.

So my pal, Bob Strang, hit me up yesterday and asked... "Yo, not sure if ya got my message, but you wanna colab?" HAHAHA Bob is one of those artists that is super nice, insanely good at what he does, VERY humble about it, and makes ya hate yourself, and wanna push yourself to the next level all rolled up into one!

Ya see, Bob is one of my all time favorite artists. The flair in his work will have you drooling and on the benge til the next masterpiece he decides to share with us.

*shakes fist full of pulled out hair* Curse you, Bob-O! Curse you, I says!

Soooooooooooooo I fell outta my chair, and of course replied... using a mild tone mind you... "HEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLZ yeah!"

So after bouncing around ideas I sketched this up....

Can you guess who's doing which side? HMMMMMMMMMMMMMM?

Hope y'all digs!

Stop Motion is so in!

So over the weekend a pal of mine, Hwang N. asked me if I wanted to check out our bud, Justin Rasch's, pad.  I heard so much AWESOME stuff about it, and jumped to the occasion. Justin is one of those artists that will inspire you for your life and I heard his pad was the pad of all pads.... What's the kicker is his whole family is so artistic that it's insanely mind-boggling! I wasn't ready for all that, but I am so ridiculously pumped and inspired, and I didn't want to be selfish and hold it from ya.

Let's just say he turned his basement like the X-men's Danger Room. Props, J.  Props.....

Their public blog is Stop Motion Mission

So anyway... I hit up Justin and asked him to write me a synopsis about what his new stop motion film.  Below is what he had to say about.  Enjoy, gang!

{Temp Title}  The Line


After a DogOnaut and an Alien Space Flea shoot each other down in a heated Outer Space Battle, the natural born enemies find themselves marooned together on a desert planet, their ships wrecked and scattered around them. A mutually agreed on line separating two territories quickly becomes an absurdly complicated maze as the two repeatedly alter it to acquire their ship’s missing parts. Comedy, a sandstorm, and an unlikely alliance ensue, as the two adversaries try to navigate the labyrinth, repair their ships, and get back to their home planets.

No dialogue.

Doctor Steel poster promo W.I.P.

Heya Gang!

How goes it? You got the pencil, pen, wacom, cintiq burning the midnight oil with ya? I hope so. :)

Many apologies for my sparseness, lately. It's not that I am neglecting you on purpose by any means. hehehe :P It's just that I've been up against the gun with some exciting projects, which I hope to be able to share with you soon. My apologies to, too for not being able to answer emails more on a regular, but I will be catching up on them soon.

AND I'll be able to finally go over (slightly guesstimating 1200 or so) the name titles that you all pitched in for naming my 2010 artbook! Thank you so much for your patience.

Here is a W.I.P. of the banner I drew today for the 2010 Angouleme comics convention. I am excited to be part of the Doctor Steel project that Jerry Frissen (co-creator of the GORGEOUS Luche Libre property and co-founder of Muttpop) and I are collaborating on. The book will be published by Soleil. Big ups to Robert Silva (co-creator of the GORGEOUS Luche Libre property and co-founder of Muttpop)for translating the script!

Anywho... back to the drawing board. I have to clean this up, ink it, and wrap up colors within 2-3 hours... .wish me luck! I needs it!

Hope ya'll digs!

Luff ya!

My cover to my 2010 artbook W.I.P.

Wanted to share with ya the work in progress of what I'm doing for my cover to my 2010 artbook. The thought behind it is to hang in there, chase your dreams, conquer your goals, and to take that rough road to keep that inspiration alive no matter how difficult it is.

This is the front cover. The final will be a wrap around cover. I'll keep you all in the loop as I take you through the stages to final. You're in for a treat, I hope. :P If you're not familiar with the characters on the surface area... then shame on you. It's my Bastion's 7 characters, but in chibi form! HAHAHA

Remember the deadline for the contest to name my new 2010 book is coming up VERY soon. Click on the link to check out the other spot I'm holding the cover name contest.

Hope y'all digs!

Mecha Nation cover

My first cover for 2010. I made some edits from what you saw before.

Hope y'all digs!
