GHOST PROVOKERS second episode premiere!

Hello Kittens,
For those of my bretheren who do not know, the next installment of my series Ghost Provokers (this time shot on board the Queen Mary) will premiere today on Halloween! Go to http://www.ghostprovokers.com/ to see the show in three parts (or find it on YouTube). It's almost a half hour long again, and maybe that's about 25 minutes too long. YOU decide. Please check it out and let me know what you think.
Hate you guys.

Is It Still Tuesday...?

... or did I miss the deadline by thirty-some hours? I like to use a Pentel Rolling Writer for my doodling, sketches and thumbnails. You probably can't even tell what I have drawn here, but maybe that's the fun of it. I just like to move my hand around inside a little box and watch the black-and-white lines and patterns form. That's the Ken Theater up on Adams Avenue in my neighborhood. The other two thumbs are pipes and windows on nearby alleyway walls.

It may be time to move back to Oklahoma



Had my top front 4 teeth removed as prep for a partial plate. Click the headline to see me at the dentist immediately after extraction.

I used Burt Lancaster's teeth to visualize what my partial plate will look like.

I changed it to just the look I will soon achieve

Another box art piece ... I put Rick's sketch through Live Scan in Illustrator and then did some coloring on it ...

Very unsuccessful attempt at Anderson Cooper. The guy he was interviewing is a fairly successful likeness.

Mysteries From Beyond the Brushpen

OK, I won't bother you with the details, but this is a great clip from a mega-obscure and damn funny movie--one of those wonderful 70's documentaries attempting to explain how extraterrestrials came to earth in the prehistoric days and taught the Mayans to surf.

I wouldn't waste precious TAG blog acreage here if I didn't think you'd get a kick out of it. If you want to know more, check out Brush Pen Breakfast.

All my love, cheeky vampires.

Jack Kirby's Color Palette?


Got it from the Jack Kirby Museum site.
Click headline to go to the site.
Does anyone know the exact address of Kirby's place? Question to those of us that went with Shel that time. I ended up a few years later getting to know Thousand Oaks fairly well. I wondered if my stomping grounds in TO typically intersected where Kirby lived.

Viva Zapato!

A palate cleanser from all the good art. An attempt to incorporate cartoons into my work at Road Runner Sports, years and years ago.

I may mod this up a bit. Colorize it, etc. N8 Sl8. Is it the same story you have in mind Tom C?

My dabbling retouch was just done with a mouse. Didn't really dig into it.

Faux Box Cover Art ...

Just a little sharing ... Those of you who have known me a while will recognize this character.

Maybe more coming, maybe not ... ;-)

It's Tuesday!


I must admit I haven't been very conscientious about posting here (or even on my own blog) since being invited to join the group, and for that I apologize. So in an effort to be a better blogger, and in acknowledgment of this blog's moniker, I'm going to try and post a new sketch every Tuesday. If I manage to post more, then all the better, but at least this way I'll get something up here at a minimum of once a week.

Playing around with REDS


This started out s a color pencil drawing but I got dissatisfied with the way it was coming out in the scan. I popped it in PS to do some color correction and got carried away. Face sucks but I liked the body results and probably will revise this design in the near future (click on title to view)



I went ahead and added a new face and did some adjustments















some more designs
