Christ: First Blood

Eh, this is old. Drew this back in April. I got new stuff, but I can't post it. Something about crazy electronic midgai wanting to climb into my brain through the electronic pulses sent thru my fingertips via my keyboard. It's all very weird and strange. I don't know what to do about it other than just ignore it...because we all know that ignoring a problem is the best way to overcome it.

If we ignore it, it will eventually go away...right?

That's how I deal with all of my bills.

Oh, and for those saying this sketch is blasphemous, I say "HOW DARE YOU SIR...OR MAAM...OR SIRMAAM!?" How could it be blasphemous to make the son of God look like a totally badass Vietnamese killing machine? Turn the other cheek? I think not. That was your grandaddy's Jesus Christ. Kids today need a savior that will get their attention! Make them stand up and pledge their allegiance to all that is righteous and holy!

They need a Jesus Christ that is going to look Doctore right in the eye and declare, "MADNESS!? THIS IS NOT MADNESS...THIS IS NEW JERSEY!"

Cue: Goofy falling sound effect.

The Destroyer of Bikini Bottoms

Man, so you want to know what happens when good ideas go bad? You're looking at it. Sonuvabitch had me by the throat, and I was like "Why are you hurting me!?" to which it replied, "Because I'm the bastard son of a whore and a pimp!" At first I was sort of glad, because I often like to think of myself as one who be "pimpin" but I quickly learned this a pimp of a different meaning.

I fought back with my pressure sensitive stylus I've dubbed, Sir Draws-A-Lot (because I'm nothing if not original), but the beast dodged my every thrust. I stepped back and began to ready myself for another advance, but it was in that single moment that the beast struck, crippling my drawing arm, and penetrating my creativity with its bicuspid of failure.

Rendered weak, and unable to continue, I dropped to my knees and surrendered to its will. As I finished bucket filling the last of the empty spaces in the line art, the beast then said in a mocking growl, "Now give me Color Halftone so that all may bear witness to your half-assed shame!" And so I did...and so it has become...forever a symbol of my ever growing artistic shame.

...y'know, because he's so damn old? What? No? Whatever.

DId this completely in Manga Studio...because I love it. I love it more than you. Not more than your love for Manga Studio, but my love for you. I don't love you. I don't even really like you. I tolerate you, because you have sometimes have this interesting little thing about you. Just not enough to make me love you. But Manga Studio...I love Manga Studio. If it had a hole, I would plug it...with my love cork.

Jason's Dirty Little Secret!

Yesterday was Friday the 13th, and I thought it would be cool to do a little drawing in honor of the special day. Of course, the only thing that would make sense to draw on a day like today would be Jason Voorhees! However, I wanted to be different from the rest of the folks who would be throwing down lines I opted to draw up little Jason Voorhees...before he went and got all murderousy!

I draw this on my livestream which you can check out here. For some reason my last couple of livestream videos have not made it into the on demand section, but hopefully this one will. I had fun drawing it, and it was interesting to sit there and try and improve a comic strip on the stop like that.

Anyway, hope you dig it. If you don't...well...what can I say? I'm sorry you're a horrible person. ;D

Okay, back to work!

Wow this blog looks clunky!


So you wouldn't know it by the amount of activity on my blog, but I've been quite busy. I've got several projects that I'm knee-deep in, and it feels great to be working on stuff that I truly believe in, and can't wait to share! While I can't talk about most of what I'm working on, I can go ahead and share a couple things that I really shouldn't share, but am going to anyway, because I'm silly.

Actually, I'm sharing them because, while they're only test strips and not going to be apart of the official project once it launches, they feature time sensitive jokes that, well, people probably won't get or enjoy as much a year from now...which is when they would otherwise be seen (included as bonus material in a collection or something). And I like the jokes I make to be gotten when they're their most funny. I I said, I'm silly.

So here are a couple of comic strips I cooked up for a webcomic project I'm working on with a long time friend and former movie review website collaborator, Ron Hogan. He actually had nothing to do with these particular strips, as he's busy writing stuff that's way funnier. I just used these as a means to see how the characters looked in the panels, and if I needed to do any tweaking. And I do, but I'm getting there. Still though, I like how these turned out, and I'm really enjoying the process of developing these characters and ideas into something that I think people will really enjoy reading.

Oh, and about the blog. After a couple of weeks away, I come back to a mess. I shouldn't be surprised...after all, I made it. I don't know what I was thinking either. So I'm gonna take some time here soon to clean it up a little, and only put up what's necessary. Blogs should be fun and easy to use...that's my motto.

Okay, back to work.
