Rome wasn't built in a day

I'm going to post some of my assignments from this quarter when I get them back. There's some pretty interesting stuff this time around. (Don't worry, nothing as graphic as my final from last quarter!) There's some caricatures that were pretty fun to do though which will be interesting to post. Also, some editorial cartoons, char. designs. Lots of fun stuff.

I'm determined to finish my story for the anthology this year. It's called Percy Versus The Alien Menace. It stars Percy (Hefty Kid Lee/Re-Todd for those who've been around for a long time) as a cop. It's a bit different from the last few things I've done but it should be fun. Here are some sketches of Percy to get your taste bud's flowing (or whatever it is that flows when you're excited.)

But yeah. Percy is tracking down a drug dealer when he gets side tracked. The alien menace arrives on earth and kidnap's a little boy (Chuck Bent from "Get Bent") I'll go ahead and say it's pretty damn exciting. Action packed.

After I finish that I'm hopping right onto the first "True Tales of the Big Lipped Beast"
Which will be 100% TRUE stories from my life. No hyperbole, no exaggeration, just the friggin FACTS.



And remember to pick up the District so you can "Get Bent" and some other fine comic strips from the sequential department.

oh yah. And I wish my roommate would clean up his act...seriously. This is the 4th time this week I've caught him. Tsk tsk!

Extreme Sushi

I'm not sure why this is blue. Anyway.

I had a little inking accident on the new get bents so it's going to be a good bit before those are back up and running. On the upside, I'm working on "Percy Versus the Alien Menace" for the anthology. I'll probably post some concept sketches and pencils from that. I don't really want this to be a "journal" or personal blog but I've been down lately and it's starting to affect my work. It's been pretty hard to do anything except sleep and eat (sometimes.)

I like the drawing in this one but the caption bugs me. (half assed lettering and could've been worded better.)

I shot some picture's of my apt...and my terrifying room. I might post those up soon.

Mutemath > The Fray live

Mutemath/Fray concert tonight. It was good but I left early.

Here's the conclusion of my final!

Epic Movie

Epic Movie was pretty stupid. My roommate talked me into it.
Actually really stupid. A few good funny parts, but only a few. (I actually saw several people just get up and leave...)


Percy Versus The Alien Menace is going into the rough stage of pencils soon and hopefully it'll be ready for the anthology.

Here's page 3 of 4 of my pen and ink I final! (This is the part where I decide to grab a weapon...)

Bobby Digital

Multiple choice saved me today during my math test.
On to more interesting things, I saw Scott Mccloud lecture tonight. (And I didn't leave my lights on this time!) For those of you who don't know, he wrote some nifty books on understanding comics, reinventing them and now making them blah blah blah. He talks like his books which I thought was funny. Very informative lecture though. Thumbs up to you sir.

Here's Page 2 of 4!

Aight I'm off to listen to some Ghostface Killah.

Power outtage

My power just went out for a couple of minutes...scary.

For a change of pace on this thing I'm going to post my now inked final from Penciling and Inking I last quarter. And before anyone asks: yes I turned these four pages in for a class.
The project was basically this: Cartoony me has to be asleep at midnight, I hear something, then I check my cell phone, then I hear it again and it scares me so I grab a weapon...then confront it.

Now, I give you

page 1 of 4!

I'm going to get back to studying for my math test now.

Yes I just bought a grill. *SMILE*

Finally got word from the district.....................


They're running 4 Get Bent strips! The other's are too Raunchy. So if you want to see Get Bent in it's entirety just keep checking this thing or grab one of the mini comics when it's ready.
I'm going to write some new stuff specifically for the District that's a little softer.

Here's a quick drawing I did of the Big Lipped Beast for Christmas and the last Get Bent for a couple of days. (Don't worry, it'll be back)

No more Buffalo Chicken...

My stomach and me aren't getting along right now.
I really need to get the next "True Tales of the Big Lipped Beast" penciled.

Throw Some D's

The strips kinda take a weird turn here...I really didn't plan their sequencing. It was more "write a bunch of gags, draw em...uh oh...stick em in a semi-logical order" yeah. Gotta keep that in mind. Here's a random sketch also. (When I cut my bristol down I always have a 3 inch wide piece of scrap bristol that I usually use to test nibs and watercolors. I think I might sketch some of the little stuff I've done on those.)

Oh you damn meter maid...

Thanks for the ticket you dirty wench.


I still haven't heard from the District so I don't know when/if they'll start running Get Bent. Either way I'm still going to put them together (along with some other work) for a nice sized Valentine's Day mini-comic.

Here's a Get Bent with a much lighter tone.

The three amigos

No yappin today, just another Get Bent.


Today wasn't very interesting. I bought turpenoid, did some math problems (scary I know), ate some soy nuts, then spent the afternoon sleeping and the night drawing. I'm going to spend tomorrow afternoon getting my sculpey ready and watching the three movies I rented and haven't watched yet. (Bicentennial Man, Stir Crazy and the Three Amigos)
Here's the next Get Bent strip!

Turn turn turn around, up up up and down

I ate at this Japanese steak house today called "Masato's" and I must say it was pretty cool. Never seen someone toss around sharp objects then set my food on fire before I get to eat it.
Right now I'm working on turnarounds for a maquette of Little Chode and Richard. (I'll probably post some of those a little later, along with the new ones.)

Anywho, here's the next "Get Bent" strip!

Doe Boy Fresh

Guess who......

Give up? Audrey Hepburn! Such a pretty lady.

I went to Dreamwork's presentation tonight which was interesting. Also left my lights on in my car for the whole thing....yeah.

anyway. Here's another "Get Bent."

Howdy Howdy!

I'm going to be posting sketches/drawings/and comics on this every day for the next few months
so check back often. Feel free to leave comments if you like what you see (or if it disgusts you!)
For now, two comics from the new mini I'm working on called "Get Bent"
(Hopefully they'll be in the District soon.)
