Disney Buys Marvel

You probably already have heard the news but blog artists have already begun the drawings of "What If...?"

Marvel Mashups!

This sounds like a TAG drawing challenge if I've ever heard one. Anybody game??

Page 03 for the Comic I'm working on ... And five links to videos I just finished last week

**Snore** ... Colors and letters took from 12 - 3:30 am ... But the "accomplishment" means I'm actually not too sleepy today (well, not yet).

I'll skip a night (I'm sketching page 10 right now) and will color another page tomorrow morning.
Lastly, here are links to other early morning endeavors -- these five segments are for a grant exploring the question "What is Worship?" ... I did the raw videos and sound clips, married everything in After Effects and put together the finished segments (all but one are under a minute in length, and the one that's over is so by only one little second) Each color word is a link to a different segment:

Met Joe Rubenstein at Comic Con; Here Is His New Onlie Portfolio

The title is a link to Joe's work, both his inks of other artist's pencils and his own color work. If you know of specific industry work, contact Joe about it off of his Web page, or forward the link to your contact. To the best of my knowledge he is finishing up a pro job or two, but in this economy ... after that? You can never have enough work or enough industry contacts.

My First Comic ... Ever.

In the DVD I mentioned below, the Comic Book series from The Write Environment ... Mark Waid mentioned that he had a copy of the very first comic he ever read. I took that to heart and went out on Ebay and found a copy of the July issue of Doctor Solar, Man of the Atom, the one where he battles a mysterious outbreak of prehistoric creatures. I purchased it prior to boarding the SS Barrett en-route to Hawaii where my family was moving. My mom said each of us kids could pick one thing to take on board the ship. Well, that was what I chose. I read that comic about fifty times during the three day voyage, mostly to spite my brother who purchased, built, and played with a Revelle model car kit.

I shall treasure this copy forever.

But I challenge EVERY ONE OF YOU, and that means every one ... to jot down the name and possibly the issue number or month of your own first comic, if you can remember, that is. This should be good.

I got machine guns..In My Butt?



This new trailer has some great character designs. That old robot he activates is obviously inspired by Laputa.

I notice it crops the video, at least in firefox it's cropped. The title is a link to the youtube video

BizLogo-Haed-Avatar Inspired





I like my dyslexia on "head" so I left it.
Sketch inspired ( or copied) from Avatar trailer.
And a biz card I picked up at Comicon that was very close to a logo I remember as one of Rick's logos.

War Wagon Plus an Idea





The Wagon and other random doodles just me exploring shapes for Nadja's conveyance.

The guy with the squinchy features is from some news story. And the idea is, why not post a face like this and then everyone do a caricature.

What do you think?

The title is a link to a Cat dying a slow death. Not for the squeamish.

Slobbering Dog




The sketch below the dog is based on a bathing photo of the wife of the French President.

Added another sketch because I can

More Doodles

After seeing Tom's Mr. Ugly, I sketched up one of my own. (Not as refined I'm afraid) + other scribbles.
