LAZY ME

Wow I've sure been lazy with my blog. More than a year since my last entry. What's wrong with me? But I haven't been lazy in other areas. I've done quite a few things over the past year. I've worked on several sketch card series, had a baby, I had artwork on show in a couple exhibitions, coloured some issues of Zombies VS Cheerleaders and my very first creator owned comic is being published in the first issue of SeqaPUNCH! I suppose it's time to write up some articles for these achievements in the blog.

Loved By Good, Feared By Evil



Y
es another achievement I can be proud of. Sure being published in the Phantom is my greatest personal achievement but Voltron is way up there. This was created July 2010. Now that the book has  grown up and left home to explore the world I can look back at the baby picture and share it with my *legion of fans. 

As simple as Voltron's design is I still had to put some extra effort and dedication into creating this piece because he's a damn robot. Objects like cars and machines are not my strong point let me tell you. Give me monsters and creatures to draw and my limbs will flail like a hurricane. But give me solid lifeless objects to draw and I'll succumb to day terrors. 

Not only did I do this illustration but I also created the title of the book (shown above). That was done as a competition. Boy the heat was on with all the entries. There was a state of mass hysteria amongst the contenders. Actually there were only about a dozen entrants. I asked about it. Glad I won though. Now that will be the second thing people look at when they pick up the book. The publishers did use a temporary logo which is shown all over the internets but mine is the official logo.


I don't get any money for sales but if you want the book you can find it here

The Creators Front for Diversity in Comics

Do you exclusively support large corporations? Do you enjoy power, money and fame? Stepping on the little people is a sport right? Surely diversity and creativity are for dreamers and hippies only. Well here is a very thought provoking and lifelike reenactment of how the big boys keep control over the comic books industry brought to you buy creative hippie Eric Powell the guy involved with making some creator owned property. Anyway not quite Schindler's List 2 but very close. Gather the family and enjoy.


UPDATE: Turns out the video is no longer available to view by the free people of the world. Luckily I had a copy of the video laying around. Let's see how long my luck runs until I'm politely asked at point blank range with a brick to take this one down from my site.

People Are Strange

There's this strange geek who keeps stalking me online. I had to throw this drawing I did of Doctor Strange at him to make him stop. And he gave me money too. The guy likes buying junk it seems ;P

This would be my first time illustrating the character. I don't know much about him either except he's a part of the Marvel universe and some kind of magician.

Going Pro

This was a fun set. I had to read the book before I painting these as I knew nothing about it before I was asked by 5Finity to contribute. Some of the cards I'm quite happy with. Some I'm sure I could have done better. But after seeing artwork that others had created my cards started to resemble what a Pro would look like if meeting up with an irate client. In all the commotion of my violent escape I forgot to sign the cards. But I have salvaged three which yours truly has now autographed. They shall be up for sale on eBay soon. Those cards are The Pro, The Knight and The Voyer.
