I have been known to be a little over dramatic about my feelings. This is case in point. Heavy thoughts yo. Once the chemicals balance out I can see how silly things are. Yet at the time it seems so fucking dire. This is one of my few attempts of these over embellished thought. It’s a slow building theme. It’s hurt a lot making it, which kinda makes me smile. I can be so full of shit sometimes.

New Alien Baby submissions based on my current skewed ideals. Just adding to the pot.
Dryspell from my current “Team Justice” Sketchbook
A shy goblin from my current sketchbook “Team Justice”
The last two are newly inked sketchbook entries. These two were penciled loosely a few months ago,. decided to ink them with ball point pen. Done in a sketch book titled Team Justice. Every sketchbook I use has a name. Some for reasons, some for no reason. I’ll go more into the sketchbook on another post.
This old soul will always be faithful to my heart. Even when my heart is empty.
Here is an illustration I contributed to Cosondra Sjostrom‘s poem book titled Creepy Romance. This illustration along with 49 other talented artists are in the recent installment of the series, book four. Not kidding on the talent. Some of the work in this book makes me feel intimidated. In a good way of course.
Creepy Romance IV
The recent book, along with the past two installments are on sale now via web (here). I’ll attending the book release event this Saturday in Los Angeles at Lock & Key The book will be on sale there as well.
Keeping the February spirit I’ve been working on a little comic in the vein on my Arch Agency series. I wanted to do some kind of love story my way. I plan to post up five pages here on V-Day.
Planning to make a few copies and hand them out to friends at this months Scramble Jam in Long Beach. It’s a day after on the 15th at Dutch’s Brewhouse. I’ll have a few there for the room as well.
Our sketch card will be a little more violent…

Thanks for reading as always.
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!
Phase one: Arrival. Touching down on alien land is nothing new, well at least the process. Several steps after leaving the vessel, the suit begins to activate. Absorbing through the fine knit filter mesh it is determined whether the air is primarily oxygen (C02) or nitrogen (N). Depending on which determines the process. Fine hair like fibers begin to sprout on the interior of the suit. They then begin to penetrate through the soft matter of the navigator or suit bearer. From here on until the process is complete the navigator/suit bearer will undergo tremendous agony while real time genetic re-structuring takes place.
The Mobilist is a one page illustration I originally did for fun. I was referencing Stagecoach/buggy vehicles. It kind of took a life of it’s own. I gave it to Ibrahim to color. He did an amazing job! The more I stare at it, the more I’d like to contribe a story. We’ll see how it turns out. I have a few stories written down. Some have quite a few pages. I’ve been strongly looking into creating pulp style novel with a few illustrations in it as well as a cover. I don’t expect it to be a hot seller, so the print run will be very short. I’ll keep the site posted as it progresses.
