More Broken Storybook pages! I was in a zone for a while. I think I’m winding down with these for a while. Inking the last one felt a little less fun (still fun, but less). Printing will commence soon. For now just accumulating.
Here are some images or the Scramble Jam! A local draw meet up we do monthly at Dutch’s Brewhouse in Long Beach.

Drawing shapes, watercoloring faces

Ran out of cards
resorted to napkin art

Last card of the night complete with drunk spots
I think this was my first card of the night.
Here’s how the April Scramble Jam went. Great night! looking forward to next month. There will be exclusive sketch cards printed and talks about a new art show scheduled for July!
This Sunday (March 1st) I will be in Sacramento California showing off some new stuff at Sac-Con. Sitting comfortably in Artist Alley. The picture above will be a new print/image colored by Ibrahim Aydın. It’s from a comic short I am developing into a mini-series called FOWL. A native American named Squanto who is cursed by a gift used to seek revenge. You can view the short comic for free at freakanimes.
Aside from that I will be showing some new sketch covers I have (which is about 40), Original water colored sketch cards (about 60), pages from upcoming comics and other prints from MY Emo Vortex.
Last is a print from the first mini series I will be releasing SHE: That Kills The Dead. Issue one is currently being colored by Norm and issue two is being scripted.
I look forward to the visits!
With a few hours before our trio hits the road, I wanted to show some do dads I’ll be pan handling at the Amazing Vegas Comic Con with my buddy Dan Smif and Galactic Film Fest Cadets. First Dan and I will be showing off our collab colored by my talented friend Allen Pasalaqua. How the collaboration was made is by drawing a diagonal line straight through creating halves in triangle shape (you’ll have to guess which side is who’s). After, Allen handled the rest. We will have a limited print run of this guy.

Next is “Have A Neat Summer” A collection of the past years ink drawings I hid away from government eyes. It contains a 24 pages of personal drawings I spent too much time time to keep them unshown in my bottomless art box. I even made a custom cover for it!
Have A Neat Summer! Electric Chair (less) cover complete with rubber diaper!
Next is one of 4 new limited prints. These guys all come with a cool seal on the back to deter those greedy bootleggers.
The first 50 or so get toploaders greased up with slimy fingerprints of the artist.
Signature will also be added to some Galactic Film Fest posters we will raffling away free at out table. The poster feature Greylio the Grey (I just made that up…just now)
One more trinket to mention is My Emo Vortex trading card featuring the cover art to issue #1 The Goldfish Assassin. Each card comes protected in a top loader for future episodes of Antiques Roadshow appraisals.
Working on a lot of things here at the table, but who cares about what I’m doing? It’s really about what I’ve done. It’s cool, this is pretty much reality. I work on stuff everyday. Sometimes things are simply not ready to show. Sometimes they are not good or polished enough. Just about every day I paint a trading card or work on a sketch cover to relive stress from the long term projects I fight to see the light of day. Honestly a lot of them get shelved, but I’m working on changing this. At any rate here are some stress relievers that sometimes become a bit of stress themselves. They can be unwittingly revealing in hind sight, but this is art and expression. I have no regrets.
Here you go!
Brotherhood of the Snake
Some times you gotta go there.

A lot of things going on. Plans, Product, inks, colors, paints, Comics! I wish I could keep up with posts and updates, but time is a relentless beast I have not yet tamed. My buddy Norm Wong is currently coloring the last 10 pages of a new comic project called Fowl. It’s a Native American Werefowl story of redemption. More about that later.
I’m currently inking pages for another comics that seems to have been on the blocks for a while called SHE That Kills The Dead. Issue 1 is a few pages away from being completely inked! Then the color process begins! It may be a while out though. My plan is to have a the very least two issues complete before it is released. Just so there is a cushion to maintain current and release on deadline.
Working on some album art for my friends The Radioactive Chicken Heads also. That band is so damn fun!
Inking pages for my upcoming art book called MY Emo Vortex.
I know there is a lot of things I’m working on and yet have produced very little. I am very aware of this believe me.
It really is a matter of making enough cash to give it the best quality I can. This has led to a lot of side jobs and juggling, but all well worth it in my eyes. I doubt anyone is as enthusiastic as me to show you guys the things I have been working on while the city has been sleeping, but I have to hold back a little longer. I hope this works….
Meanwhile here are some art card distractions that have kept me company!
An ode to bad breath
I swear I meant nothing dirty by this, but who knows?
…from a Rat faced weirdo
A lot to show and tell about this weekend. So much I got distracted with drawing. Wonder Con was this weekend. Met some people. Caught up with some friends, working on a few projects. Like I mentioned a lot. BUT…another day. For now I show a couple of today’s art card distractions>>>
One Life to live
One Life To Live. You know like the old soap opera….aaaaaah whatever, I didn’t expect you to make any sense of it.
“Hobo Respect” is a term Zara and I coined. It means to have respect for hobos. They have it rough, but still manage to make it on their feet and shuffle through another day. You gotta respect the follow through.
Get Money (greedy bastards)
While I’m working on projects tonight. I thought I would take a break and do a bit of sketch card’n. I enjoy doodling these things out. There is that sleep hobby I should try again….well someday.
