Andres Again

I've been reworking this one a bunch. I think it could probably use some more attention, but what do you think?

I don't know about this. I think it doesn't have nearly enough gravitas for the subject matter I was trying to deal with, however from an aesthetic standpoint I think this is a triumph. It sadly is yet another case where I aim for class, and end up with something other than that at the end of the night. It happily is pretty boss looking.

Saturnian Sherriffs

Perhaps if you follow this you've noted a certain proclivity we have for Saturnians. Here we see the toughest team of lawmen to ride the space lanes. Iphigenia Schoefield, the Six Gun Shiva, Doc' Bee, and their loyal native guide, Big Chief Toad in the Hole. Its a cold hard vacuum out there, count your lucky stars there's a posse that goes harder.

More Mummy Action

I fixed up some bad stuff about the old mummy deck and here is what I think the final version is. Maybe not. Suggestions? Decorative borders?

Bride are you? is pretty much my favorite website. It is a treasure trove of tragedy. I like drawing the guys on that site. Here are a few.

Deck II

In January of 2005, Andres Raya, a decorated but AWOL marine did something terrible in his hometown of Ceres, California. Whether what Mr. Raya did was the result of PTSD and a young man whose experiences in Iraq were terrible enough that he chose to die at home, or a cocaine fueled rampage by a gangbanging thug, we almost certainly will never know. However we do know that something terrible and tragic happened leaving Mr. Raya dead, along with Police Sgt. Howard Stevenson.

Mouthpieces were quick to jump in from all sides, the right, the left, and stranger places, and the Ceres police launched an initiative to crack down on the NorteƱos street gang which incited complaints of racism from the community.

If I've learned anything from watching Chuck Jones cartoons in my youth, and Reading John K.'s mad rambles in my maturity, its that any part of a character not working is a missed opportunity. The ears and overall mass here I think are used well. Probably some of my inspiration for how an emotional dog acts comes from the tail end of the classic Looney Tune, Feed the Kitty.

Cartoons are fun

One time I dated this girl that was really skinny, Dracula feet hands skinny. It was kind of a train wreck of a relationship because we were too young to be as serious about stuff as we were, and she was really really off her rocker. Sometimes I think that might be why I really like drawing things that are fat as fat can be.

I drawed some Pony

So I think this new sort of digital shading looks a little wack here, It might just look hotter with just the line art, but thats probably largely because I went in really tentatively with the gray and it as with all things should be all in or all out. This is what I learn from watching Sons of Anarchy on Hulu. Actually the guy who decided to go all in was set up by the ATF and his wifes head exploded, so that really wasn't a moral.

Still, in regards to art, All in All out. TV biker gangs aren't illustration.

Curse of the Mummy's Tomb

Lord Carnarvon was the financier of Howard Carters expedition to Egypt. The expedition that excavated the tomb of the child king Tutankhamun. While in Egypt, the English Lord was bitten on the cheek by a mosquito. The bite grew infected after Carnarvon knicked it while shaving, and he died of blood poisoning. Stories say that on midnight of the night he died his dog let out a howl and died. Stranger still were stories of a matching wound on the cheek of none other than the recently exhumed boy king Tutankhamun.
