Page 14. A random page I like
I’m very happy to finally have this out and available! It is now up on the new Ebay account and Zarstar studios store. Really lucky to have Norman Wong coloring my work. He makes my lines look much better than I think them to be. I will be making a few store adjustments and will be building up original and print work on Ebay.
There is a bit going on that is too lengthy to type (and to read), so I’ll do my best to edit and condense.
My Emo Vortex #1 now available on the new Ebay page and Zarstar Studios store.
For anyone who purchases anything from Zarstar Studios directly, I’ll send a little original thank you.
The new ebay site it just beginning, so I’ll be running some .99 auctions to build up some transaction numbers. Mostly original sketch cards, and one off drawings that distract me from comics.
Here are some sketch cards I worked on during WonderCon in Anaheim this past weekend!
Here are some tales from the sketch book done this week:
Have a good weekend! Thank you for reading!
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!
Cover of the preview
Slurville Presents: A Friend Of Mitsy
This event takes place within the town of Slurville. The same town the Arch Agency appeared in. This is a 5 page preview to a story that I am building in script form. WIth the intent to write a feature film.
Right now the current plan is to create a full color motion comic of this content, then co-produce a short film from the feature script. I hope you dig this 5 page thing so far.
Recently had to print out some art cards for the Scramble Jam here in Long Beach. There was some space left on the page so I added this guy on the pages I printed, cut them out and now I have about 25 of these with blank backs, so…
I’ve been drawing on them as warm ups before the comic pages and blank covers I obsess over. Listing for sale as I do them at my store (link here). My store is kinda sad with only 5 items, but for now this is how it be.
The side goal is to complete all 25-26 pages and print a small book zine to sell at shows (Which all be talking more about later).
Well, thanks for reading!
Rowdy Scallywags and myself have been itching to do a comedy type thing for a while. With time and budget constraints, some of our other pilot ideas have been temporarily shelved. Due to a shipping error I have recently acquired several thousand comic books. Many of which are….questionable.
In my attempt to reduce the stacks I came up with an idea…This show was created. There are three more episode scheduled introducing some characters and awkward attempts at financial freedom from the shackles of Rory’s strict mother (played by Melissa Ray) Rory has quite an eclectic of funny books. Some of which may interest potential buyers.

Hope some of yous check it out and maybe get a kick.
Wednesday morning. Three days left of 2016. I gotta be honest. I don’t care. Makes no difference what the calender says. The hustle is strong. A little unfocused and not quite ready to pull the print trigger, load the snake oil on to the caravan just yet, but the work is close to share.
A few things I was able to do work for recently was some roleplay character art for Mythopoeia Games Publications Convention Adventure titled Mad Cow
I didn’t do the cover art, just some illustrations inside.
It’s only a buck to check out (link here) The creator Mike has been cool guys that’s been real supportive.
Started working with the company earlier this year doing illustrations for the second source book for Realms of Fantasy II
You can get the game and books at DriveThruRPG (of course a small plug).
Also turned in work for Creepy Romance volume four. Available sometime January 2017 (I think). Self published by Cosondra Sjostrom. A poetry/art book collaboration between 50 artists including myself. Some of the art already shown looks so fucking cool! Looking forward to checking it out.
Last and most current contribution is a book my buddy Nathaniel over Eyedraugh is putting using Augmented imagery. An interactive type deal that’s going to blow your wigs off. It will be available early February.
Oh and the drawing above is colored by Shuiez Hermenz Dude knows how to recreate 1980’s flats like no other! The drawing was incidentally done on the first pages of an original copy The Dungeon Masters Guide book by Gary Gygax. Doing my best to keep it golden.
Thanks for reading to the bottom.
