Round 17: Monkeys in Masks

  Happy (belated) Halloween! This was part of the series of drawings I did for Inktober, which is a daily ink exercise in the month of October.
  The story goes, that if you visit Indonesia as a tourist, you may be approached by monkeys wearing kid's clothes and doll masks begging for money.  The problem is so bad that the government offers roughly 100 bucks for each monkey trainer turned in.  Seemed like the perfect topic for Inktober!

These were all done in ballpoint pen.  The series can be found here.
New round soon.  I promise!

Round Fifteen: Star Wars!

Time to knock some cobwebs down and dust off the sketchy jams! Until we have a new round decided it's a new sketch for an old round, the Jedi Cowboy Kanan Jarrus from the Rebels cartoon!

Round 17: Holidaze "Monster With A Heart"

Here is a Valentine's Day Card project I completed for LA Film School.  Apologies to Gris Grimly and Donnie Darko for the design.  Done with Zbrush and Photoshop.

December 21st Bak'Tun

A little late, but this was my "holiday" card this year. Just a super quick ink job with flat color. On the inside of the cards I did personalized apocalypse comments like: "Maybe it will be like Mad Max! You bring the guns and we'll build the Thunderdome!" That sort of silliness. ;)

...from this year's abandoned Santa themed Christmas card...

As a life long celebrator of Chrismukkah and regular illustrator of Seasonal Holiday Cards sometimes my work has a more direct reference to specific Holiday imagery. In this case I went with two feelings or activities I have this time of year. It still captures the Holiday spirit to me; and Secular Half-Jew.

Round 17: Holidays!

We're back!

My all time favorite versions of TMNT was Michael Zulli's run set in feudal Japan. The Turtles were demons summoned by Splinter with black magic. Ever since, I've thought of him as more of a manipulative force as opposed to the good mentor. Everything he has the Ninja Turtles do is to reach his own goal of revenge.

and yes, I have returned to the internet, don't worry I haven't been just wasting time, there's a big announcement coming soon..

TMNT noses!!

If you don't want to use photoshop, you can always just draw TMNT on your face! :)

Didn't you know it was a meme?

The Last Circus

Happy new year!!

Watched "The Last Circus" over the holidaze and it was probably the best movie I saw out of the half dozen or so movies I watched during vacation. The ultimate "clowns after midnight" movie. Not for the faint however.

Here is the trailer.

Not too happy with the proportions but charcoal is fun on recycled rough sketch paper. Why does it have to be so hard to sharpen charcoal pencils?
