First Run Version-1934-of King Kong found in London Theatre

Click the headline. Cool article. Of course there's a lot of buzz about this maybe containing the Spider Pit sequence. If such an animal ever existed.


KZ UPDATE:

Lost KING KONG Print May Not Be As Old, Or Rare, As First Believed

Fish Dude

I started this guy on Monday morning and got pretty far with him as the bus ride was extra long.  Snow was coming down and brought traffic to a crawl.  Freezing temps during the day made the roads icy and I-5 was a parking lot going home.  After attempting to ride the bus home for a while and got off as the bus was headed onto the freeway and walked back to spend the night at the office.  It turned out to be a really good choice as I've heard horror stories of 5-10 commutes home (as Ronnie about that).  There was food, heat and a couch, as well as Netflix, so I watched War of the Gargantuas and slept pretty well, all things considered.

Gun Nose - Josef Rubinstein / Johnny B. Gerardy

In my quest to provide transparency on The Gun Nose Chronicles as it moves through the pipeline, at least for TAG members, here is a look at the story writ by me, penciled by Josef Rubinstein, and inked by Johnny B. Gerardy. Emily Bolles is coloring it even as we speak. Sorry about the grey lettering. It'll be white over the colored pages, but this is just a first peek.

Bad News Bear Doodling


I should spend more than 2 seconds sketching Matthau someday.
Joe Rogan stab. And ...you guess the second one. The only think right about it is the hair.

Trying to do something Bobby Chiu like

It's tough. I can't figure out, even when he explains settings, how he is getting his brush to lay down his gradual build up.
 Some Kirby links for you

ReMasterwork

This is a "ReMasterwork"... our fantastic "workforce culture" people go to a bunch of thrift shops and pick up crappy old prints, photos and other images.  Through a Yankee Swap method all the participants pick out their image to remaster.  Then we are given some time to tinker with the image (no scanning and reworking on a computer... this is all hand manipulated directly onto the 'original') and bring it back to the office to share.  This is my entry into the event.  I think it should be pretty obvious what I added to it.  I only used 3 pens... brown, black and a gel white.  It worked out pretty well, I think.
