I used to draw comic strips a lot. Had one for the high school newspaper, and one for my days working @ walmart. I did this one to inspire my buddy Dylan to git in there and do his own.

Between November 29th 2007 and August 3rd 2008 I logged 15,746 photos. Of those, I tagged my darling Pix in 1,365 of them.

That means 8.67% of the photos I took contained this shining face! Wow!

Ok, so now I feel guilty for posting photos as my SAD... but thats part of the point! Ive got tens of thousands of photos, and only a fraction of them shown. So if you think its a cop out, go fug yourself!

More figure drawings and photosets on the way!

It picked up towards the end, but for a while after I got there almost everyone was out of tune. Couple of serious winners though, including Layla Lane. If you want some badass upbeat piano/guitar battle saloon type shit, go check em out.

Always fun to draw @ Unurban Cafe Friday Night Open Mic Night.

I've got figure drawings and a buncha stuff I wanna post, but I'm in a hurry tonight. Normally I wouldn't justify myself, but someone is looking over my shoulder giving me shit.

This is the first picture of my darling that I have. Today marks us being together for FOUR years. Pretty disgusting if you ask me. :)

Sketched these back in November of last year. I was on a pretty solid kick of drawing pretty regularly. Gotta get back into it. Drawing from photos is harder than drawing from life, does anyone know why?

I was planning on doing a couple of digital paintings for my family for xmas, but I wound up waiting too late and stressing myself out in the process. The holidays should be about enjoying things, not freaking out. This is the only piece I finished, though afterwords I just let it sit on my hard drive.

I would up doing a series of charcoal portraits of them instead. Maybe I'll post those tomorrow.

Just a random quickie tonight. Had a wonderful weekend and some good photos and shit to post, but for now this little fucker will have to wet your whistle.

I woulda posted these drawings from Friday nights Open Mic @ Unurban Cafe yesterday, but I was struck with self portrait inspiration and limit myself to 1 important post a day. Ta Da!

Just a bunch of studies from stills to brush up on my digital painting game, since I have almost none.

A long ass time ago, a good buddy of mine named Zim asked me if I'd like to do some album art for his band The Humanoids. They rock, and hes quite a pal, so I said fuck yeah! Plus, I've never had anything printed for real before, and this shit would be on vinyl.

Here's some initial scribblings. Buncha different ideas.

The final inside cover of the record sleeve.

Here's a more polished sketch for the front and back cover.

And the final. Be sure to click on this, I uploaded the print res file, and theres lots of details and stuff in there that I'm pretty happy with. As if you cared...

Anyways, go give them a listen : The Humanoids

I'm pretty sure I sent this to Dylan, but never posted it anywhere.

This one I quite likely haven't shown anyone.

Animated GIF's are rad, and when you've got a camera that shoots hella burst mode you wind up with lots of potential for lil things like this. I've got dozens plannned, but I've been sitting on all of them since 2007. Seeing these is the first step, and I will definitely get around to finishing the rest.

Back to Sunken City! January 3rd 2010!

Ok so look, the thing is... I've got TONS of photos. I'm not a photographer or anything, but I really like to shoot. Its mostly for my memory so I don't forget all the good times I'm having. The problem is after I upload them to my comp, they just sit there in media catalogs. Thus why I post so many photos here. I'm trying to do SOMETHING with them!

After this set, I'm more or less caught up with 2010's stuff. My plan is to stay on top of it, and get shit posted as it happens. No more waiting 3 years to post shots.

This is what victory looks like.

And this is defeat.

In case you missed it... this is what I'm referring to. Thanks bebbeh.

Being the sassy lady she is, she made ANOTHER bet upon the arrival of this mega burrito. Now if I can only make it to 6 months without missing a post.
Tee hee hee.

I have 747 images tagged with "sky" (which is the general term i used to organize all photos where the beauty of the sky is the dominant factor of the image) in my 2008 media catalog.

Still haven't come up with a good way to use them all without it being bullshit.

BLT's are quite possibly the best sandwich ever. Especially when you say to your darling lady, "Woman... make me a sammich." and she actually does.

Mmmmmmmmm bacon.

This photo has haunted me FOREVER. I cant quite put my finger on it exactly... but it definitely has something to do with the perfect sharp isolation of the hand and can, and the quickness to which the rest of the background blurs out into overexposed goodness.

But other than that, theres no real story or anything. Its just an image that always catches my eye. So fuck it, I'm finally posting.

Comic Con is a fucking great adventure. I've been every year since maybe even 2005? I don't remember exactly. Here's the phots I never posted from 2008's con. Some friends and family were in town, and we all carpooled down there and got nuts.

Within a few years, I hope to be proactive and have a booth down there with my buds @ Three Legged Legs. Woo hoo.
