My little buddy Zeke sends draw requests from time to time. Always fan art requests of pop culture characters. It drives me crazy finding reference and drawing accurate. So much I asked him to only drawing things he imagines (hoping to deter the requests)
Not so much the case. He imagined some things. Two teams to be exact. I don’t know the story or origins. He refused to tell me incase I thought to steal his idea. Kidding, he just didn’t tell me. I know for sure he has already thought it out.
Anywho, here is 9 year old Zeke character concept of the Zen-X Disease
Here is my interpretation of the team
This is the other team called the Infection
This is my interpretation
It was pretty fun using the loose reference to illustrate.
Next week I’ll talk coasters, SKA, beer and bars!

Happy to have Dallas stop by and draw up some free form doodles! His work tells stories. I dig it!

Had some left over cards from last month’s Scramble Jam Long Beach meeting. Met some of the gang at the Creepy Romance Release party this past Saturday. Chris Waterman did a couple inebriated sketches on some blanks as well as myself. Wondered into a coffee shop and did a few more today. Here’s the progress. We have planned a post Valentines’s day Meet up Wednesday Feb 15th at Dutch’s Brewhouse. The same place as last month. Made special Bootleg cards for it in celebration. If you are reading this, and are local, and are interested you are welcome to this public event. It’s just a meet up draw session, no fees or costs. I’m sure the venue would like you to purchase pizza and beers, but the choice is optional.
I will report progress by the end of the week.
Some ink I did over Dan’s original pe
Dan’s Original pencils work on an old torn out page from a book
I can’t remember exactly when I met Dan to be honest. I think it was in 2007. I really dug his work and asked if he had a sketchbook I could purchase. He said he didn’t. I offered to make one for him. At the time I was steady making zines and sketchbooks of my own. He took me up on the offer. I gathered some images he had on line. Sent two copies out to him along with the file. I asked if he would signed one of the copies and send it out to me. He did and included the pencil sketch above.
It wasn’t until recently I had the nerve to try and ink it.
Dan has been real supportive with some of my creative ideas. Maniac Cop being one. That project is a little bit of a long story to go into right now though.
He has also helped with a horror project I shelved before I began my SHE project. The plan is to later bring it into SHE.
I really appreciate Dan’s help and encouragement. So much I thought to post it. To whom ever reads this, check out his work. It really is amazing!
