Going OLD SCHOOL in a digital age...

Here's the way I work when I'm not on the computer . I use a fairly large, not too thick, hardback book(This Popeye book is great!). I can keep projects saved between the pages.

Right now, I've got three projects in the book:

My latest SUPERMONSTERMOTION Flashanimation storyboards

A comic book story I'm illustrating for a fellow self-publisher

And my DEATH'S HEAD TRANSMISSION graphic novel project

I'm not gonna let the lack of tech hold me back... I hope you don't either!

One does not live on Art Alone!

One does not live on Art alone. Translation: My friggin' computer is still down so I can't scan or make stuff yet! So, here I am enjoying the STAN SAKAI exhibit in Little Tokyo over in Los Angeles at the JAPANESE AMERICAN NATIONAL MUSEUM. It was a really cool exhibit, showcasing one of the premier comic creators of our time! If you can, go check it out! He's got an amazing body of work on display! Oh, and don't forget to check out the Mitsuru Cafe across the street! That cafe has been around since I can remember, and when it comes to food, I remember, I REMEMBER! Good old fashioned Japanese American food at really inexpensive prices! Don't believe me? Check out the pic!

Now THAT'S a lunch plate!

Making headway on DEATH'S HEAD TRANSMISSION project!

Like most of us Artists/self-publishers I've got more than a couple projects going. Until I figure out how to draw with my feet(Man, my legs just hang there off the chair while my arms do all the work!) I've got to budget my time so I don't neglect any one of them.
So far, today, 5 pgs and counting of my DEATH'S HEAD TRANSMISSION graphic story! Here's a couple of pages just to show you I ain't blowin' smoke up your chimney!

IDIOT ENGINE ep48: Finding Style in your Art!

This episode of the ENGINE I'm joined by self-publisher/illustrator/character designer Mary Bellamy as we discuss finding style in one's art. It's a solid, informative and enlightening episode, and if you don't believe me, take a listen for yourself! (See how I'm gettin' you to listen to the episode? But seriously, it's a good one, and just at the hour mark too, so you'll still have time to catch that episode of that show you always like to watch aferwards!)
