Here is a new image I have been working on lately of Superman and Batman as children. I was playing with opposited here by making Superman a skinny kid and making Batman a kid with acne who doesn't quite fit in his costume. I have been trying some different techniques in coloring this image and I hope it shows some improvement.

The Early Wake Up

This Post is dedicated to both Danielle and anyone who has ever felt the way she did at that moment. I too have felt (I KNOW can you believe it!...ME!?!) the cold sting of rejection many times over in my short existence in this world but I always manage to pull myself up and get back in the saddle.

This is a pretty much a personal glimpse into Danielle's and my life and I made sure to ask her permission to post this before I did. For the most part it was verbatim what we said to one another...I of course embellished slightly in the dialogue to add effect but I tried to keep the moment as was.

Thank you all for your comments and suggestions! Have a good one.

This is my sketch of an Aboriginal man which I drew while watching the film Proposition.

Well I'm off to go see the new Batman movie tomorrow out of town so I won't be posting tomorrow.

A Good Friend

This is my good
friend Graham Hurst...

Who I know from the church that I go to. He is one of my dearest friend's and is like a mentor to me in my life. I can't tell you how encouraging it is for me to have someone who looks out for me and enjoys talking with me even though we are separated by many years in age.

Here are some Stats on my good friend:
He is 84
Played tennis at least 3 times a week until recently (WOW!)
Was an FBI agent (What great stories he has about those days!!!)
He helps the elderly (although most are his age and slightly older) with business stuff
All around Good Guy

If you have the chance to meet him...You SHOULD! I believe every young person should have friends that are older than we are so that we can learn from them and they can learn from us. We both do this for one another and I hope you all get the chance to have this too!

OK....Enough with the gushy Stuff!

No Time.....

Alright I must confess I didn't have enough time yesterday to post something....But today I thought I'd show you a quick comic I did. I might turn it into something soon.

Look! I can DRAW!?!

These are two drawings from my sketchbook. Man! I love that moleskin sketchbook! Thats my plug for the day if you didn't catch that by the way.

WOW! I have some good news coming down the pike but for now I will keep it to myself. Keep on the look out here because as soon as I know its a final deal I will let you all know about it.

Color Time!

This is a color sketch (Before you say duh! Keep reading...) I did my last day in NYC. I hope to start to do more work with watercolors in the coming months. Some people have asked me to post some of my color work.

Thank you my fellow Blog viewers for all that you have said and encouraging me throughout this process.

This is a comic I did about my trip in NYC. I drew it all out with a ball point pen and each page probably took an hour to do. I like the hand-drawn feel to it so I didn't clean up all of my mistakes on purpose. I added a color on Photoshop to help convey the story...Its an old Indie Comic trick I learned a while ago. I hope you enjoy it.

Alright! I think I've gotten used to this whole blogging thing and now I wanna cut loose and have some fun and not be so stiff with my writing here. Its probably hard to tell if I even have a sense of humor with my stale to-the-point writing.

Let me tell you about this guy name Skip Skipperson....He's your typical know it all News type of guy. When he looks at you he already knows he is better than you and he pities you for that reason. Oh! Did I mention...I made him up of different News casters I have seen on T.V. I thought he would be perfect in contrast of lil' ol'Me.

More Sketch Crawl from NYC

Here are two more sketches done while in the NYC last week.

-The first image is from the Sketch Crawl I attended. Its actually two images...On the left is a tree in the park...On the right is a car and tree in the background.

-The second image is from the ICON5 moning speaker. For the life of me I can't remember his name though! He was funny and apparently helped in the creation of Pee Wee's Play House.

More Sketches!!!!

This is a comic I did in my sketchbook about the Sketch Crawl and abut me personally. All of the events contained in these four pages are true and no names have been changed.

On a side note...I'm thinking of coloring these in one color. If you have any suggestions on a color let me know!?!

ICON5 Sketches

I just got back from The ICON5 this week and BOY did it come in handy at learning so much new stuff. I had a really great time even though I was sick as a dog throughout the week. I hope I can capitalize on all that learned and keep in touch with all my new Illustration buddies I met.

This was done in my sketchbook while on the Sketch Crawl which was a lot of fun and I truly recommend you all go on one of these Sketch Crawls.

This is just people I saw around the conference...No one special.

This is an a couple of drawings I did while at the conference.

I will be posting more drawings tomorrow....Probably my comics I did.
