HMT-DMT Sat on a Wal

A submission for the Super Punch SciFi Fairy Tales contest. I never realized that people to this day had no idea what Humpty Dumpty actually was, but in my realm of imagination he was a futuristic industrial spy in serious need of some jet fuel which is why he should have gone electric.

Star Power!

Man this week has been crazy. Christmas put new miles on my car and a few pounds in my stomach. That and I finally got my laptop back up again, I installed windows 7 on it and subsequently broke every driver and given my recent addiction to Mario on the Wii I have had little time or motivation to fix it. Meanwhile I had to kick it with some odd mediums...and then eat them. God bless the bag o' Starbursts!

I did have the chance of seeing Avatar in 3d which was cool except for the plot. That and the fact that the whole movie would have been better if it were entirely cg (a la Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within, another beautiful movie with a terrible plot), the live action and cg mix was an awkward juxtaposition. Other than that it was entertaining. I still don't get how they had so many feathers and not one feathery bird nor how the arrows seemed to gain in their penetration from the time they bounced off a windshield and then ten minutes later pierced it like it was made of plastic wrap. Sherlock Holmes was amazing though if only for the fact that I expected to hate it and came away with an English accent and a need for a pipe.

Movie Review!

I really can't say I hate Twilight and Twilight: Nude Moon, but that's only because I keep falling asleep every time I see it, be it at home or in the theater. What I will review however is the crowds at the theater. Never ever ever sit on the end of a row lest you enjoy your slumber punctuated by the stampeding hooves of women as they herd themselves through the aisles in pairs of twos in search of a restroom to void their bladders the size of an Altoids can. Never ever ever ever get there on time or early for the films in theaters unless you desperately wish to stand in line and hear every Jonas Brothers song filtered through the woefully underpowered cell phone speakers forming a cacophony of tin flavored sonance akin to what hell must sound like. And finally never ever x 1,000,000 interject with polar ideology or criticism of the Twilight series at a premier of Twilight, it's much like screaming "HAN SHOT SECOND!" at a Star Wars Convention.

Bizzaro de Beardo

Another bearded superhero (or villain in this case). This one just confused me, if Bizzaro is the opposite of Superman why doesn't he have a beard? It seems the natural fit. How bizarre.

The Little Marmaid poster

An entry for the Sci Fi (or is it syfy now?) Fairy Tale Contest o'er there at Super Punch. This one is an update of Hans Christian Andersen's Little Mermaid (along with a bit of the Disney version.) Here's my synopsis which I derived after drawing it and watching too many DVR'd Twilight Zone episodes and a Phineas and Ferb marathon.

*Queue deep raspy voice* In a world where the earth has outgrown its resources, mankind has been forced to travel to Mars to make it its new home and a teraforming team is sent to establish a new colony dedicated to making mars a habitable environment. One day the earth President's son begins a small trek to the Noachian epoch to research possible water deposits underneath the surface only to find himself gasping for consciousness when he accidentally crashed through the surface into an untapped natural water channel and begins to be unmercifully dragged by torrential currents through the tunnels.

Aegle was princess of the martian marmaids, an mythical underwater species surviving in the glacial undercurrents of mars' undiscovered submerged caverns. She was destined to live a life of obscurity under the martian soil until she saw a peculiar unconscious creature discarded by the currents into an underwater eddy. Unlike any creature she had seen she knew it was in danger and braved the currents to his place of origins, depositing him on the dry land from whence he came where his Digital Obedient Guardian brought him back to his colony to search for the one who saved him.

Indelibly changed by the incident, Aegle wishes to become a human as well. Aided by the witch queen she must now must choose to gamble with her very life in exchange for a chance to be something extraordinary.

Pt 2: The Bearded Wonder

Another drawerin I did last night for the bearded superhero theme. I always wondered how much testosterone Amazonian women had in their blood.

Bearded Venom

Sketch for Art Jumble. Ever since I saw this article I wanted to do one and it happened to be this week's theme.

"We'll SMASH The Competition!"

Only God knows what inspires me and this is a perfect example. A business card for Mr. Fixit, Hulk's alter alter ego. I never realized how similar he is to Solomon Grundy from DC.

Flip yer Nose...

A new Nose Art I did of Asajj Ventress for Super Punch. I put all the severed hand marks but in reality the whole ship would be covered in 'em, Star Wars must have a tie in with the prosthetic limb industry.

And here's Nose Art for my favorite show, Firefly. Long live the Browncoats (And Carmen San Diego who I threw in there because of my nostalgic mid life crisis.)

Who is this man?

I was in the local Wal-Mart waiting out my wife as she search for such frivolous items as shampoo and toilet paper when I saw the Iron Monger toy.
At first I gave it a simple once over wondering who in their right mind would want a Jeff Bridges toy (unless it was based off of Fearless with a strawberry accessory and swelling trachea action) until I looked at the back and saw him on the back...or whoever he was that was stealing his ride.
Seriously, is that Uncle Ben?

Snow fight

Just working with inking in Illustrator to make some vintage lines. I also want to reiterate my hatred for the CS series as I could only stand 3 lines without reverting to 10. How Adobe could screw up a program meant for illustrating I will never know.

Even monsters care about the earth.

A couple of signs I made for Halloween to get into the whole earth savin spirit. Did you know Zombies have a greatly reduced carbon footprint?

Someone's sapin' my mighty mugg!

I recently did a custom toy for my friend Lou's big 30th birthday. Since he's a jerk and likes to kill (while INVISIBLE!) me in Team Fortress 2, I decided to make him a toy of his very own. I also made the box and backplatting, thanks mighty muggs! Click here for the flickr pool.

Boba Fett is... IN DIGESTION!

This is the book that should have been made. Boba deserved better than to be digested in the belly of a sarlacc and he deserved a better resurrection than a crappy 90's comic/exploding jetpack.

Super Zeros: Hulk Vs. Wolverine

The Hulk, you can take his legs and his jaw, but you can't take his unquenchable desire for flesh. Poor Wolverine, maybe next time he can get the fresh meat instead of lousy old venom heads.

Pirate Sith

Finished this one too late for the Art Jumble "Create your own Sith" deadline.

Scribble Dead

I'm kinda looking forward to the upcoming console games now that 5th Cell is moving on to consoles. I love the DS, but it gets cramped at times.

I'd subscribe, but then it would probably go down.

It is my hope that in the future men will have flames for hands.

All I need is a wizard.

Seriously, I don't know how I landed on this, I was watching Broken arrow at the time.

Le masqué mustache

My submission for the Art Jumble's "magical mustache" theme.

This is my fondest moment, running like a juggernaut, crushing foes beneath my feet hearing their pleads for mercy, riiiight before running off a cliff.


A nod to John Hughes' Ferris Bueller. RIP

Support the fight!

A submission for the Captain America theme for Art Jumble. I chose to do a propaganda poster against the villany of the Red Skull.

Cyclops: Redesign

The effects of a Wolverine marathon are becoming apparent. This time it is a small revision of cyclops allowing him to redirect his optical blast into his feet (for limited flight) and hands (for pummelin'). Oh and a trigger which uses brain wave patterns to operate (no more switch on the side of his head).

Wolverine redesign

Not that he needs a redesign, I just thought it would be fun to throw and updated spin on my favorite vintage costumes, before blue ever entered the pallet. I like him with shorter claws, it's more visceral and I made them bonier since I have no clue why he has rough bone claws then suddenly ultra smooth adamantium spikes. I added some metallic boots for rippin into Sentinels with movable claw "toes" and adds a few inches to his stout form. And I've always preferred the shorter ears from the first costume. Here's a close up of his head design and ULTRA CHIN (adamantium tends to pool in some areas.)

Deadpool: Reimagined

I decided that deadpool really needs a refreshed look. He's had the same costume for the past ten years (save for the many many pouches of the Rob Liefield version) and with the spotlight now on him it's time to make him look less like spider-man without the web. Still wanted to keep his holographic suit features and please excuse the small gun, recession and all.

The case of two Cutlers

As a kid my mom would always put on Scooby Doo thinking it was a cute and harmless show from her days...I can't play Bioshock to this day because of it.

Alternate Ending

An entry I did for the Art Jumble for the "hug" theme.

Space walk.

A recent post at Art Jumble for the Space Girl theme. My first piece done on my newly fixed laptop. The fan broke and after some direction I realized it may have something to do with an 1/8th inch coat of dust covering the heatsink thus blocking all airflow.

The two Kutas

*sniff* my tablet bit the dust today, literally, the exhaust fan is broken and I have to order a new one, poor dusty soul. Anyhoo, until that glorious day in which it returns, I am just messing around with the ol' macbook and trying to finish some half baked ideas, forcing myself to stop trying to draw on the screen with a bic pen.

It's funny how you can see a designer's work over time and never connect the dots. this is the case with Sean Galloway. I had first seen his art on the NFL Vinyl figures (Which I converted into a Soldier from Team Fortress 2, please make TFS figures Sean!) Then I had just picked up The Incredibles comic from the comic shop (the only comic I've bought in a while), so it was a bit of a shock to find out they were created by the same person. This is a bit of fan art for his character line up (and my personal favs) Taki, Kuta, and Kito. And what a better way to show off these veritable assasins than with a pleasent day in the park?

For whom the bell tolls

In my imaginary comic I have the distorted impression that Venom and Spider-Man once fought at the bell tower (beside the other fight at the bell tower with the symbiote) and this is merely my attempt at seeing this vision into fruition. Mediums used: Illustrator, Sketchbook Pro and Photoshop.

Team Fortress 2 Greeting Cards Inc.

A get well card I made for my friend and fellow teammate. Click on the pics for the large printable version. I'd like to make more, maybe in the future. Maybe a "Sorry You Got Teabagged" card.

The issue of the blood.

Today being what it is, I issue this simple sketch.

Too soon...

I have a dilemma here, on the one hand I want desperately to sate my appetite for the new Wolverine movie and watch the leaked version making its way around the torrent sites as we speak. However, discovering that it is an unfinished workbench copy has thrown a wrench in said dreams. I now have to decide whether seeing an inferior version of the film is worth saving myself a month of gut wrenching agony as I search for every scrap of trailers and interviews until that fateful day arrives that I can enjoy the splendor of a 40 foot celluloid Deadpool. I couldn't care less about the studios, they will get my ticket stub and blu ray purchase regardless. It is however my respect for the people who worked hard on the film to see it the way it was intended, CG explosions and all. Finger poised over virtual button, my pointer moves slowly away; mental note, I need to get some antacids. Click here to see the whole comic.
