Seeing is Believing..


Outside my window in Boston, I’m glad to be back in warm weather.

Back to work on some new stuff.

That’s some new Party Bear on the screen.

Everyone should pick up my buddy Nathan Fox’s Pigeons from Hell. I have a tiny pinup in the back of the trade.

My snowboard in the new Shaun White game is super expensive, and I have yet to purchase it in game.

The little blurb you get if you press x.

I picked up a copy of Comics International, which has a sweet color feature on Aqua Leung! Read the rest of this entry »

Hey everyone.

I’ve been laying low and taking it easy lately. I hurt my drawing hand a few weeks back, apparently bad enough to need weeks of inactivity to make it feel right again. I was having trouble holding a pen even. Thankfully it’s better now, and I still have no idea what I did.

So the bad news is I wasn’t able to complete 24 hour comics day as I had planned. I wrote an entire mini graphic novel, and drew the first 4 pages before my hand killed and my cold (yes I got sick too) got the best of me. I then went on auto pilot and drew 11 pages of Renegade Panda and friends. I’ll probably just post them next year as I’ll just pick up where I left off.

I was sitting on this for a bit, but if you buy Shaun White Snowboarding for the Wii, X-box or PS3 you can sport a nifty board designed by me for the game. I hear that Burton is making it into a real board as well. Neat, right!?

For those of you attending Wizard World Dallas. I’ll be popping in on Saturday just to say “hey” to a few people. If you recognize me or catch my name tag feel free to bug me for a sketch.

I’ve got quite a list of things to do built up.

– The New Alibi’s album cover (my friend Drew from Lost City Angel’s new band)
– Birthday present art
– 3 pieces of Christmas art.
– 10 new pages of Party Bear to draw and color with help from Olli this month (in addition to the 10 already completed, suckas!)
– Demonstration comics for the next two days in San Antonio for a Canson product demo.
– Finish inking Sock Monster 1 pager I did for fun
– 1 Page comic for Le Monde Diplomatique (German edition)

I did a story for Popgun 2 that later got bumped to volume 3, which later went on to be dropped despite me being listed as a creator on amazon. It’s a story titled Hardcore, and it’s written by me and drawn by the talented Anas Awad, who some of you I’m sure are familiar with.

I’m debating posting it online for free. Maybe through ACT-I-VATE. It seems a shame to let it be shelved due to hard feelings directed towards me when it had little to nothing to do with Anas. I guess that’s unfortunately the reality of the business though.



In other news, I used what I learned from Ms. Thaxton in school and busted out the needle and thread to create Cornelius Buffington. If you live in Boston, you will notice his handsome face in place of my own handsome face in the Dig a week ago.

Lastly, here’s a pic of me and my friend Claire who randomly popped up in Austin for a wedding a few weeks ago. You might unknowingly enjoy her art at the Fresh Pond whole foods in Cambridge. She’s the store artist.

PS

GO OBAMA!

Ok, so as I’m sitting here working on page I DON’T KNOW anymore of Party Bear, I’ve become quite fried from looking at my own art for so long.

Post up something YOU’VE been working on if you have it. I need something to look at.

PS

Pretty nice review of Aqua Leung over here.

Well, I’ve been in writing and website building mode for a while.

Here’s my attempt at drawing something that isn’t a comic book page. I’m most likely going to submit it to threadless or some other site like it.

I was also going to make a funny post about how I’m a 26 year old man that can’t grow a beard to save his life. It’s been 3 days without shaving and this is all I have going It’s weird, I have no problem, as you can see, growing hair on the top of my head. Well, instead of all that talk, let’s talk about how my camera loves to take blurry pictures. :/

I would like to go on record saying that Akon is the new Nickleback. All of his songs sound exactly the same and I’m sure there is some humorous formula to creating an Akon song.

I’m feeling nice and productive lately.

Now if only I could show my Pigeons From Hell pinup I did for the new trade..

Here’s a sneak peak at something I’m doing for Tiny Meat.


Also, if you’re in Austin, I’m going a signing over at Austin Books for Comic Book Tattoo and Popgun 2 from 4-7 TOMORROW.
