I’m getting ready to head to Seattle for a Walrus signing, Sooo buy one there or show up with any aquatic dude you want signed. (it’s my newest art book thang dawg)
It should be fun.
I remember being a teenager and trying to bring my art to the Fanta offices and not being let in. My adult life is all about dealing with the so and sos of my youth.
Also, I just sent off Prophet #39 with 9 artists doing pages in it. Here’s what the contents look like-
And a nice Back up this issue by Paul Bohm
I’ve been drawing more these days, or working to draw more. The new Warheads is puttering along.
Here’s a page I’m working on from it.
My sketchbook has become a mess of story notes and layouts but here’s some recent drawings out of it. (some Lady gaga–she has smooth videos, Empowered THB annd DB)
Also I don’t think I put this up here yet. I did a variant cover for my pal Sina Grace’s Burn the Orphanage.
I wanted to do something like this:
So my pencils looked like this:
Also, here’s some more Prophet stuff Dave Taylor did:
and a cover by Ludroe,
Also I ran into this site of Takashi Matsuyama’s work who assisted Akira Toriyama of Dragon ball fame. He has all these great car drawings on there:
Also, I read Shigeru Mizuki’s newly translated Gegege No Kitaro manga. Such fun stuff. I loaned it to Simon but managed to scan these panels that hint at it’s greatness:
And I’ve been looking at these super Moebius inspired Dragon’s heaven pages that someone posted on 4chan’s mecha page:
I think this page is interesting in how it shows such a Moebius mountain rip off on the right ,but on the left the artist is doing something uniquely Japanese with an armed mecha:
And here’s another manga page I ran into on this internet that got me thinking of the possibilities of panels. I like how the window is broken up like panels. I imagine you could do a whole comic with the window showing the past of –or even another entire story from the characters in the forefront:
and some other pictures I thought were cool:
and here’s some dumb stuff I made with the magic of photoshop. I always feel like I should point out as cool with people doing weed as I am, I don’t actually touch the stuff myself. It puts me to sleep. but I am a fan of pot based humor.
I do however, both like to make Care bear jokes and also like Care bears. I think some of my early bad memories were other kids giving me shit about having care bears. But now we all know what a not to fuck with dude Grumpy bear is so no one talks shit.
And an early Shirow drawing I thought was cool:
annnnd I’ll leave you with a Thanos I did on a blank comic cover to give to the dudes at RX comics here in vannncooouver.
