Sketch Monster!


Just been working on personal art, some comics before the debut. I wonder what everyone else is doing this break? Are they all relaxing, working, preparing for anything special/big? I’ve been pretty inspired, but never really wanting to start getting work done. It’s bad to feel into something and then not act on it. Do you feel that way too? Anyways, we should just DO things. No one else is going to do it. So just do it. That’s what i have to keep telling myself over and over. Just got to jump in.

This sketch is part of this idea that involves collaborating with another artist comrade. We want to create halves of works, give the piece over to the other person, and throw down a finish to the piece. This is just the start of it.

Colored Cover!

Funny meets Funny books!


I'm creating a comic book based on my stand-up comedy. I incorporate my jokes into a fictional setting with a story that advances to the next set-up of the next joke. And here is the working cover! I drew and inked it today and added the logo digitally.

Look for the issue to come out soon and I hope you enjoy the cover! I hope to color it later this month.

UPDATED: I've been notified that the girl's left hand is positioned incorrectly. Thanks!

A lot of Related Things I've thought

I don't have an Art Post today, but I wanted to make aware of some things I've been seeing lately. I bought the DVD series Joss Whedon's Firefly maybe over a year ago. When I have dinner, I usually like to put an episode or two on, but the problem I faced in those situations is falling asleep from a delicious meal and not watching the show. I've been advised it was a great show, and though i never doubted that, I just never got around to watching it again, afraid that I would not like the show if my sleeping meant that it was boring. I'm try to think of myself not being a conformist, but if I actually think a show is good, haven't seen it, and hear from my group of friends it is good, then I have faith that I will probably like it. So I tried to find the right moment in my life to not fall asleep.

Watch it while eating breakfast, not dinner.

I was able to make it through the pilot episode and it was fantastic! And I noticed alot more familiar faces who have gone onto other characters in various movies, shows, etc. But it was awesome! And I want to watch more.

Based on the faith I have from this new viewing, my friends' fandom of it, and the general public's love of it, one has to wonder why it got cancelled. Firefly only ran for one season on the FOX channel. Why? What is up with FOX??

I ask that question because one of my favorite shows I have ever seen is Arrested Development, and I haven't even made it through the entire series yet! And Arrested development, another FOX series, was cancelled after it's third. Yet it is one of the most well-written comedies of this generation. I mean, better than even The Office. So why do shows like Two and Half Men survive?

You may have seen a movie this summer called Sex and the City. It made LOTS of money. LOTS of money. And it was a TV show, too. Not that I'm saying it was a bad show, but it performed well beyond my expectations.

Now wait a second. Firefly had its own show come back as a movie. Serenity. And it did not do outstandingly. It satisfied fans and people loved having a real conclusion from it. And the X-files came back with it's second movie. Which did the same thing, satisfied its core fans and life went on.

I guess the point I want to make is...

1. WHY DID IT HAVE TO BE SEX IN THE CITY THAT MADE THE SUCCESS???

And now only because of it's success are properties like Arrested Development and Veronica Mars being tossed around to make into movies.

The second point i want to make is that Dollhouse is in development hell. Dollhouse is Joss Whedon's next project. He did the previously mentioned Firefly series and created Buffy the Vampire Slayer as well as the Angel spin-off. But why oh why is he putting it in the hands of FOX?? It was to premiere this Fall 08 season but the pilot went back and will probably be released in Jan 09. Did they want it to compete against Lost or something? Or did they want to be jerks like they were with Firefly and Arrested Development? I guess the point I want to make is...

2. WHY DOES FOX HAVE TO SUCK??

I mean seriously, even your news sucks.

SF Tribute


It seems like ages ago, but here is my SF Tribute piece that I submitted back in April. It was published in an art book and was premiered at Comic-con 08. Think of the book as a refined fan art book, with professionals sending in their own takes on Street Fighter characters. You can check out the book here.

I wasn't a huge fan of Dhalsim or Honda, but for the piece, I liked the contrast of skinny versus massive. Plus, they both have markings on their face. I like seeing this piece because in just a few months I improved my clothing. In a year I bet that I will cringe when I see this piece.

Holidays begin


So it is Christmas break again and it is completely empty in the town of Savannah. It's like summer, where all the students are at home. It's really fun though, just to make artwork all day without really a reason to. It gives us all time to work on personal projects, and I've noticed a plenty of people starting up blogs. I'll be linking them in my friends bar so you can take a look.

As far as personal projects go, I'm excited to get cracking on my own, and hopefully it will be available early 2009. Hope everyone is having a great holiday season so far and I'll be posting some recent artwork as the weeks go on.

PAX con



I went to PAX over the summer and I was pretty blown away by what it was. I was actually going to talk about it in this blog post, but i think I cover a lot already in my comic. IF you ever get the chance to get out to those cons, definitely do it, and I'm not even a player of video games, or even a huge reader of Penny Arcade. But i respect what those guys are doing, what they have done, and the unique and profitable career they have made for themselves.

I don't know why i'm not posting any of this stuff. I guess i'll slowly come out with things i've worked on since my last post.

Right now, its all school and comics. Life is tough for an artist. And sometimes i lose sleep, because i'm dreaming about the future. Ah how i wish it would come, and how i wish it wouldn't. The places we will go...

Savannah Comedy Revue featured on Fox News 28 WJCL

If you're in the Savannah Chatham County area, you may have heard that I perform stand up comedy with the Savannah Comedy Revue every Wednesday at the Live Wire Music Hall. We were just featured recently on Fox News, which is awesome! Here's the video that i recorded off my living room TV:



We will be performing again tonight, August 27th, and after that I will be taking a hiatus until September 10th. You can expect us to be performing all throughout the SCAD school year as well.

Back from Comic-con 2008!

Man that was a trip! I was starting to get worried because I missed preview night and the entirety of Thursday. But being there for three days seems like it is enough for me. It was a great weekend, got to hang out with some old friends, met new ones, and signed copies of the Street Fighter Tribute. Thanks to the UDON crew for letting me hang out with you all at the booth! Hope to see you guys at PAX, too.

I be back to update this blog with an in-depth look at what I saw, did, etc. Plus... photos!

The Magician!


I love Will Arnett. I've only seen season 1 of Arrested Development, but seeing him in other guest spots is always delightful. Hope to see more of him!

I...AM...IRON MAN!

iron man

I built a really cool project for 3D class. An Iron Man arm. I formed a frame from galvanized steel and attached wires for the arm. The hand piece was a circular device in a VCR that I screwed onto some metal pieces. There's one piece between the index and middle fingers that just sell it. Looks legit. And it is pretty fashionable to be quite honest.

Splash Mountain

It's been a great quarter so far. I have done some great work for my 3D class, which surprises me. And i have done some very cool stuff for my Drawing for Storyboarding class. I will post pictures this summer, so look out for all of that.

Every friday i have seen a movie. Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Harold and Kumar 2, Iron Man, and Speed Racer. All of them AWESOME in their own respects. FSM just hit home with me so well. It was all of the same feelings i had once in my life. Perfect movie for that. Harold and Kumar 2, though not as good as the first, was still entertaining. What i liked about the first one was that it had cameos by up and coming comedians/actors. It reminds me of movies like Jay and Silent Bob or Dude Where's My Car when there are a slew of crazy characters that enter the scene randomly. Iron Man, awesome, without a doubt. But I will have to say that my EXPERIENCE seeing Speed Racer was better than mine with Iron Man. I saw Iron man in a crappy Savannah theater, with some bad quality, rendering the visuals fuzzy. I saw Speed Racer in a Los Angeles IMAX. Yeah, it's gonna feel better. And i had seen a lot of the Iron Man footage at Wondercon 2008, so i was spoiled in that regard. Hopefully it wont be the same story for Wall-E.

Stand-up comedy has been huge this quarter. I have performed at the SCAD Talent Show and it led up to my gig at the Livewire music Hall in Savannah. I performed there last night to a decent crowd and was happy with the results. I'm enjoying this comedy thing a LOT. And i hope i go places with it! Wish me luck!

I want to be producing some more ART art. Some more hip-hop, urban paintings. Cause they are FUN. This summer is gonna be huge for me.

And now, some comedy...
