Moria Road

A submission for Super Punch's Lord of the Rings/Beatles mashup. I imagined if they made a soundtrack this would be the cover of the EP. If I ever stop staring at my son, I might be able to do one more submission, but seriously, I'm addicted.

My best creation yet!

Dean Edward Parker went gold on Sunday at 8:30 pm. At 6 pounds 5 ounces he was declared by the two panel experts to be the cutest baby ever.

Angry Gingerbird House

I had decided to do an Angry Bird themed Gingerbread house. Unfortunately what I failed to realize is that given the nature of the game (and my amateur baking skills) the house was doomed to a crashing finish. Fortunately I managed to grab some pics before (and during) its demise. Click here for the whole set.

The red bird is a jawbreaker and the pigs are green apple gumballs.

Gingerbread Arcade

I have always wanted to make a gingerbread house and well, 'tis the season. However, I wanted to make something more to my roots and decided to make a gingerbread arcade.

They Live -- They Sell

Just got done finishing up my Halloween DVR list, finishing with They Live. I heard they were making a remake and thought of some of the possible applications, perhaps an iPhone camera app that reveals the aliens instead of the sunglasses.

Fun with vinyl

In about 25 days I should be holding my newborn; devoid of sleep I will hunt Red Bulls in the night like a caffeine addicted Nosferatu. But right now I'm enjoying the euphoric novelty of pre-fatherhood and thought, hey, it's 12 at night, why not do something fun.

So after a bit of deliberation I decided to make a family vinyl sticker set that I could be proud to force people to watch as I travel as slowly as possible from the hospital. This is just the mock up, I can't put the real deal on for another month.

Angry Birds: Thanksgiving edition

Between Thanksgiving food overload, Black Friday and a Call of Duty chaser I haven't drawn much so I felt it fitting to do a piece for the art jumble "turkey" theme. I was really hoping that there would be an Angry Birds Thanksgiving edition, maybe with a turkey that bounces or one that can float for a little while then smash on the building below.

Anyhoo, Happy Thanksgiving weekend!

The Real Reason Why Terminators Travel Naked

In between daily assaults of CoD:BO I managed to meditate on why two-ton hunks of metal can't manage to even bring an ounce of weaponry with them. Thanks to the recent roundup of TSA activities I think I found my answer.

the Inception of avatars

Done for the ArtJumble theme of Made up facts about animals. All throughout my life I had always trusted that the avatars of the animal kingdom closely represented their real life counterparts. Namely that hedgehogs were blue, Tasmanian Devils were slobbering whirlwinds of fury and wolverines were long clawed yellow animals with a propensity to smoke cigars. So it came with great horror to discover that the way these animals misrepresented themselves.

Genus Aves Iratus (Angry Birds)

In celebration of me actually just passing Angry Birds Halloween edition (screw 3 stars, it was labor enough just finishing it!) I dedicate this bit of Ornithological documentation to my fare feathered friends.

King of Kong

A recent idea I had to make a revised version of Donkey Kong, but make Kong massive like the franchise he was based off of. Then you could have him climb the stage, destroying the level beneath you as you scramble past the 40's themed skeletal skyscraper all in an effort to to drop the crate on his head at the top of the level to slow him down and rescue the damsel in distress. Also you'd have to turn your screen sideways...still working on that one.

Courtroom Drawings: Supreme Court vs Violent Videogames

Courtyard drawings from today's Supreme Court case.

Many have been dumbfounded by the intensity of its attorneys, I just hope the video game industry hired the right lawyer.

I Object! Kratos was clearly within his legal rights to defend himself from the three headed attack dog!

"When Lex Luthor (Anthony Hopkins) attempts to clone and replace Superman (Nathan Fillion) he accidentally creates the freakish doppelganger Bizarro (Sylvester Stallone). Raising the abomination as his own Luthor instills an indelible hatred towards the Man of Steel and pits the two in a deadly match of strength. After a battle spanning days, Superman defeats Bizarro in a near stalemate.

Luthor, not willing to accept defeat, forms a plan when he realizes Bizarro's major difference from his costumed nemesis, Bizarro's powers do not rely on the sun's energy. Together with Bizarro he places a thick cloud of red refractive space dust across the atmosphere forming a red spectrum dulling Superman's strength.

Now, with his powers stripped Superman must overcome his fiercest nemesis with the brawn of Superman and the genius of Luthor!"

184 minutes. Rated PG-13 for some violence and mild language.

I heard Nathan Fillion had to endure 4 hours of make-up and prosthetic attachments each day and pack on 80 pounds of neck muscle while Sylvester Stallone had up.

Zelda: The Zombi King

Hey, if Red Dead Redemption can do a zombie game, why not Link?

Saturday, October 30, 2010

And you shall know him by the trail of dead.

Of If Samson Was in a Norwegian Metal Band. I am undecided whether this was inspired by my endearment to Samson as he carved a wanton path of destruction or the new season of Metalpocalypse but here you go.

Tron + Star Wars posters

I don't know if you have ever compared the Tron poster and the original Star Wars poster, but it always bugged me as a kid how much the two looked similar...I was a strange kid. Still I thought it would be cool to merge them together while I am making my Tron Vader.

Random sketch time: Bane meets Batman

I have a hope to see a video game one day in the vein of Mega Man, where after defeating the boss you take his tech. This is clearly after the Bane level. No cape, just pure roid rage.

Midieval X-Men

Staring King Magnus, Phoenix Queen, Cycloso, Beast Horde the Barbarian, The Rogue Monk, and Cycle Son of the Ice Broad.

Political Villains

It's been two years since my last batch of political signs and since the elections are big again this October I figured it was time for another batch. Here are the first two.

Superman 4:

Biproducts of watching Superman 4 on Starz this weekend. Seriously when I was a kid this film was amazing. Now when I watch them I must all logic out the window and enjoy it like an old WWF montage with an electrified Ultimate Warrior. I mean, these are reporters and they can't tell that Superman is Clark when they saw each of them within 5 seconds of each other? Lacy is in space with no protection and somehow survives that and a forced re-entry?!?! The moon rotates?!?!

A true Power Bracelet

I don't know if you have seen the most recent entry in the line of "magical" bracelets but this market is filled with crap hoodoo that sounds like an entry from The Onion. Anyway, I decided to make my own magical bracelet, one that actually works...well for Link anyway. Now available for 999 rupees.

Kill Bill

Man I can't wait for the new Bioshock...and it looks like I will have to, 20-frickin-12! I love the feel of the new environment, it's like Gangs of New York meets Bioshock.

Life after death: Be mindful where you bury.

Especially when you bury all the Mario unfortunates in a field of power ups, you're just asking for zombie trouble.

Life After Death: The Series

Remembering #293,839,298. I'm sorry I wasn't paying attention, Duck Tales was on and they finally played the scene from the opening where Scrooge and the evil guy scramble across a disintegrating floor. It was awesome...also I'm pretty sure my controller was broken.

Fight Club

One last (maybe) submission for Super Punch's Calvin And Hobbes Art Contest. This time in the flavor of Fight Club.

I hate The Clone Wars

I hate Star Wars: The Clone Wars. No, not the animated shorts; the CG show about the triumphs of pre-Vadar and his militant traitor master. Ya know, Vadar who led an assault on the Jedi and Rebel forces killing millions where he personally murdered a handful of children before most likely killing (or attempting to kill) his partner Ahsoka. Then you have the clone troopers who are the equivalent of SS soldiers and yet I am supposed to graft empathy to the hide of this demonic army? Then you have Yoda who is like Winston Churchill and even he's not likable, he just lets it all unfold like a dimwitted Muppet! Finally you have Emperor Palpatine who I just want to see die in every scene. So I pretty much just watch the show hoping one of the main cast will die and they will fail every mission, but they don't! They don't die! Ever!

So this is just me venting my frustration of the fact that I am watching the equivalent the adventures young Hitler and his Jewish sidekick...I hate this show.

I am finishing up a couple submissions for Super Punch's Calvin And Hobbes Art Contest. Buuut before I finish them I thought I'd just post the first, my tale of Calvin and the inception.

On Holiday

Still trying to finish a piece, but I managed to eek out a quick sketch for the Art Jumble Grim Reaper theme.

Plants Vs. Zombies

This random thought is sponsored by 4 straight hours of plants vs zombies for the iPad. This would be my preferred version, the DC edition. You would have the flash who could speed past pea shooters, batman who can switch lanes and Superman who can only be beaten by kriptoplants.

The not so Lost Woods

While playing the original Zelda (part of my list of games to play before the baby hits.) I was trapped in an endless struggle of man vs memory as I attempted to remember the route out of the lost woods. Sadly this is the way I live my life daily seeing as I have no navigational sense and must continually rely on gps to navigate me to the simplest and most common places. I have driven to Disneyland approximately a hundred times, each time like the first, lost and bewildered looking for the Matterhorn to poke from the sky.

Girls dig the bad boy.

A piece for the Art Jumble's Princess Peach theme. This would explain the ease and frequency of her "kidnappings". Really, I just feel bad for Koopa.

Halo: And The Space Apes!

After a week devoted to alien genocide on the planet Reach and after hours of cut scenes and dramatic lens flare it finally dawned on me, this has to be the most retarded thing I've ever seen. I mean I am a space marine fighting intergalactic apes. Seriously this feels like it was copied from a 50's weird sci fi novel, years down the road people will look back and wonder how anyone could be entertained or frightened by this. Needless to say I was completely entertained and absolutely frightened of an ape carrying a grav hammer.

So I decided to do my interpretation of Halo if it was made in the 50's.

Bumper stickers Pt 2

Here are the left overs I did while making the original bumper stickers. I was going to make one for Maniac Mansion that read "My child never blew up the mansion", but then I got sad, blowing up the mansion was half the fun!

Just a quick sketch for the Art Jumble Football theme.

Bumper Sticker

My son Dean is going to be out of beta in just over 3 months and I've got some preparing to do. I've never understood why parent stick the crap bumper stickers about their six year olds making the honor list in a grade where bladder control is part of the curriculum. So I decided to make some stickers that I would be proud to brag about to the world. And since my child will grow up playing games that build character (and OCD) they would look like this;
