Long overdue.

What’s new what’s new… not a lot.. but I am working on a series of illustrations. Unfortunately my progress was hindered by the loss of my secondary hard drive. (A brand new Seagate Barracuda 500GB). Apparently mine was part of a whole line of drives that were dropping like flies.

So I, like many others, fell victim to a malfunction, and thus I am left with a paperweight that needs to be returned for a replacement. (I pray they don’t give me another of the same as these are still on the market.) Of course, now I realize I really should invest in an external drive so I can actually back up my work.

But here are some jpegs of what I was working on before I lost it. Fortunately, the original pencils are.. well.. still intact, obviously, so it’s a fresh scan and several hours until I’m back at where I was a week ago.

So here’s the pencils of my new work:

A little bit of color:

And a lot of progress:

Supposedly what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger- so here’s hoping that this work turns out even more fantastic on the second go-round.

I’ve also got a drawing of a unicorn being devoured by insects in the works… but I have not yet scanned it. (That’s what this weekend is for.)

So- I should have more stuff in the coming days as I’m feeling totally psyched to do some new work.

Also here’s another quickie I did a few weeks ago:

Wooo saucy!

Annnd color:
I love red..

And maybe needless to say.. but I love red. And muted purple.. and greys with color in them.


Biiiig update.

Because the last time I tried to post wordpress timed out and lost what I wrote and I said fuck it and gave up for the time being.

Anyway here’s a BUNCH of stuff.

First off here’s Josh and John being the badasses of the techbar. I was sick of comic stuff so I sketched this out this morning at work. Look at that MASSIVE G5. XD


Okay and now here are the inks from page 2 of the comic:


Here is the color for page 2. I think I like it. I may make some more changes but.. this is pretty finished.


Here are the inks for page 3! That library scene nearly killt me.


And last but not least.. to finish things off.. here’s some goopy monster guy!


So that about does it for now.. back to coloring page 3.

Ah.. disappointment.

And so Kristian cancels the show.

Today really sucks.


Well it’s the big day today! The day of the grad show! And guess what…?

I didn’t get enough sleep. Not nearly enough. I was up late penning an invoice sample for my prof and I have a critique in an hour at a cafe. Least I can get breakfast there. Bleh..

I really hope tonight goes smoothly though.  And I pray I find a box of stickers in my PO box this morning.

Also I sketched up this image to be on my portfolio box and on my pedestal at the show. I loves it so. I was doodling something similar in Psych the other day.

He’s so confused about what’s going on.. while the bird FEASTS. Also it matches the setup of my stickers. ❤

It is far too early..

I barely slept. 4 hours.. tops. Nightmares coupled with stomach pain and restlessness contributed to a shitty night. Tonight is the opening of the Student show, I’ve got the night off from work, so I guess I’m gonna go. I hope Josh wins something. Hell if I win something it’d be killer for my resume.

I bought the domain by the way. Nothing really up yet.

It’s still pretty exciting. Let’s see.. my letterhead is designed.. I asked for the help of a few GD majors at school and they took a look.. I made some changes to the type but it’s looking good. Web class in an hour, so I’ll at least be getting more work done on the site. Flash is such a bitch. I sketched some lab guy with gloves and two halves of saw-scissors in his hands. I’ll post him later when I have some time.

Now, it is time for breakfast.

And so we begin…

Well, in an effort to get things rolling with the webdesign, I thought I could at least get my blog up and running. The main site is still in the works but I should get all the coding done within the next few weeks, definitely before the grad show at the end of April. This blog will be where I post some of my projects I’m currently working on, including developmental stages and napkin drawings. As far as things lately..

 I ordered 250 stickers off of, I don’t have the design saved as a .jpeg yet but when I get around to it, I’ll post it here.

Had a critique this morning on Junker, my newest illustration for Grad Portfolio, it went swimmingly. Working on business card designs and finding a suitable portfolio case to display my work. Then I have to go through the hell of getting plexi for the show and hoping that all of my work prints on time.

In other news, here are some really lame in progress bits of my new guy, Stumples. Stumples, WIP 2

Stumples WIP 4

So stage one is pretty basic, and moving on I’m adding more depth and wotnot, and of course at the request of John M., more maggots.. “as if he were choking on them”. Gorgeous.

I want to finish him up and get to work on a revision of the Caterbeast, who is also featured on my stickers.

So much to do so little time to do it, guess I’ll just relax during the rest of my ridiculous shift at the campus bookstore and try to sort out how I’m going to afford all of this printing.
