Merry X-Mas!

I decided to do some quick x-mas cards for all my peeps and fam this year. I designed 4 cards and just decided to keep redoing them, but with slightly different colors and stuff. I also figured what better way to show X-mas this year than with drunk animals in a tree. Happy Ho Ho Ho ya'll!

Creatures and Vegas?

Ok, so these are the pieces I did for an art show for the now faded Fadedcamel. Twas a show we did about 2 years ago now at Meltdown Comics. These were fun because color pencils are easy to use and get pretty good results. It was also fun to draw these gals. Although I can't say I'm proud of all 5, I still think they look pretty decent. The green one sold! What what!!

I'm wondering if I should stick with singing "hexmor" or go back to "hex"??? Nah, Hexmor seems to have more style? what do you think?

Waiting Room Doodles

Haven't drawn to much lately so I figured I would post a doodle I did yesterday. While drawing him though, I got to thinking about Mari's post about how she has been using her paintings of animals and stuff to express her feelings. Funny how that happened with this guy. Can't say that he is an exact representation of me but he is pretty close. Anyway, hope to post some more stuff soon. Maybe some older work that hasn't got much play. And now back to the Wii!

Back in '84

Here is a drawing I did back in '84. It is of Voltron (and what I think is a Robeast in the back). I got a kick out of seeing this. I guess I drew this on the same day that both of my two front teeth fell out. I remember that I begged and begged for the Voltron Toy until I finally got it. I still have it today. He's a little broken, but still good. Yeah, still good.

SB Comic #4 and a Redux.....

Trick or Treat y'all. So Skeleton Boy has gone through a small change. It looked to me like his more graphic style didn't fit the other characters and environments he was in (SB comic #1, #2, and #3). So this is his new look. I made him a little scarier too, to fit his scenarios more. So what do you think? Happy Halloween!

Planet Terror

So I finally got around to watching the Grindhouse movies, Planet Terror and Death Proof. While I really enjoyed Planet Terror, I can't really say the same for Death Proof. But I digress... I thought that Rose McGowan's character Cherry Darling was pretty sweet so I decided to do a little sketch on her with her fun leg. Kind of like the way this turned out. I think I might just paint this sketch. Man I hated Death Proof!

SB Comic #3

Here's a quick Skeleton Boy comic that came to my head whilst watching TV this morning. I kind of miss Elementary School... Who could of ever thought. Woo!

Back When I Animated

So here be my student film from 2002. Uploaded on youtube, of course, so it loses some of the quality. Still watchable though. I'm thinking of remaking this film. A redux if you will. Maybe both animation and some live action. I have another film I did after this one (2003) but I like this one better. Enjoy. Wee!

Tattoos Aplenty

I have a few tattoos going on my right arm. All of which were done by Mark over at Studio City Tattoo, the best tattoo shoppe ever. Hope to keep getting more done and hope that Mark does them all. His line work is incredible. So.... there are some tattoos that I never posted the artwork of (either here or at myspace). I figured this time around instead of just putting that new artwork up, I would show pics of the actual tattoos. So here they are (in no particular order):

The Pig and Pepper (with the Door Mouse on the right)

The Dodo
Some Mushrooms (there are more around the arm but they look like these)
More Flowers from the talking garden (with Bill the lizard with a ladder)
And the last tattoo I got, The Talking Door Knob (with a view of some talking roses and a peek at the Gryphon).
The talking door knob isn't from the book, but I thought he was great in the film so I put him on my arm. Woo Woo!

Spider-Man Fun

Before Spider-man 3 came out, there was all this hype on it in magazines and on various sites. This got Armen and me to start our "draw a spider-man a day" fun. No real theme or rules with it. Just draw him in anyway we wanted and in any style. While we really didn't stick to it and only got like 11 or 12 sketches done, it was still fun. Here are a few of the ones I did that I like. I hope Armen starts a blog or something soon too so he can post his spider-mans (spider-men?). Yee Haw!

Revisiting the 80's

After watching the "Transformers" movie this weekend, I figured I would post a painting I did earlier this year that's within the same nostalgia. It's Cheetara from the Thundercats. It was part of an art show held at Gallery Nucleus titled "After These Messages." It seems she is still for sale there but I think I way over priced this piece. Live and learn. (***Update*** Not there no more. I took her home instead.) My idea here was circus people and I figured the Thundercats would have made great circus freaks. I should probably do the rest of the group. Probably........ Hallah!

This is Bill, the lizard with a ladder. He is both in the movie, Alice In Wonderland, and in the book, Alice's Adventures In Wonderland. Bill doesn't have to big of roles in either, but I think he is a great character. That is why he is a prominent tattoo on my forearm/elbow. Bill.... You complete me.

I have also started a flickr account to show off some of the photos I have taken. You can check those guys out by clicking here. So far I only have my Japan trip on there, but plan to add more soon. Out!

Friday Fun

After a Dodger game with some peeps from CN (cartoon network) came a quick stop at this French restaurant named Taix for some drinks. I managed to snag these 2 drawings from that night. I like the way these guys draw me. The napkin one is from Pen and the post it one is from JG... Enjoy.

Skeleton Boy

OK, so I figured I would start with a new piece of art. There isn't much of that just yet but I am hoping that this blog will keep me active. This is Skeleton Boy. He is a boy that died around the age of 6 and has come back to life. His name as of now is Clive Ashton. He lives in a cemetery and is a little naive about his circumstances. All he wants to do is make friends. Unfortunately he can't talk and he's a skeleton. This, of course, scares off everyone. Despite these shenanigans, he is usually a pretty happy boy. This here image is the "cover" of what will be several little comics on little Clive and his attempts at making friends. I will post the first comic as soon as I clean that sucker up. Solid...

It Begins

Sooooo here goes. Hugo the blog has begun. I hope to actually post often and use this here blog. Oh the pressure.
