Creaky w/ Creaky Voice

It has been a long, long time, Rocket People. But here goes. . .

1. I'm redesigning the Arms & Ether website to include a variety of projects. Inspired by needing to put something together to apply to Stumptown Comics Fest.

2. Am sending off Arms & Ether issue 1, a collection of the web comics, Volo, and Crane Book to be printed.

3. Busting out some more work for TwinPinks.

4. Many more things in the pipeline, but enough for now.

Collaboration With Robert Arellano

"The Soul's Mailbox" is a meditation on fathers and sons for the Lawson Inada and Friends Poetry Celebration at SOU. Bobby Arellano, Director for SOU's Center for Emerging Media and Digital Arts (EMDA) wrote and recorded the poem, and I did the chicken-scratchin'.

Wausau, Wisconsin is Where You Ought To Be

I'm visiting University of Wisconsin, Marathon County under the auspices of the lovely and talented, Diana Budde. She's been taking her drawing and painting students to local elementary schools to work on comics and storyboards, and I've been lucky enough to tag along and do some demos. The kids are way cool and inspiring. The highlight so far has been drawing Kyklopean Lincoln at. . . Lincoln School. Here's a recreation. . .
Here's a local news story on the visit. Warning: includes scary video of a bald man with a giant head animatedly prattling on.

New treatments for Happiness Hole Characters. Resemblances are obscure, but intentional.

New Comic of Sorts

A new strip, but not in the 4-panel format which I've been working with the past few years. Looks like it'll go into a book at some point. I'll ruin the thrill of unveiling it in print by posting it here now. Bralgh. Click to jump out to a readable-sized image.

Summer Drink and Draw T Shirt Preliminary Design

A first draft of the commemorative Drink and Draw t-shirt. Enigmatic drunken artwork by Ian Chachere. Fin de Siecle font-werk by Ezra Butt. Ezra, did you ever get a copy of EzraBolde? I can still appropriately accidentally alliterate with the best of 'em.

Daily Sexy 80's Lady

If you're not wearing a teal headband, what's the point really? I think this was inspired by Julie's sexy 80's high school tennis pic. Anyhow, this was done straight up in Photoshoppe, but who the hell cares??? I'll keep drawing until our new Xbox 360 arrives later this week. . . As per this recent run of figure drawings. . . Robert Conrad.

Summer Folk Daily

I did some little figure sketches whilst coffee and baglin' at Key of C the other day. I did the top drawing in 40-shoppe by working from the pencil thumbnail below. I don't know if Robert Conrad ever drew, but if he did, I like to think these are the drawings he would make. That guy carrying the flag just might be me. But is he surrendering. . . or leadin' the charge???? You can click 'pon the damn things to make them bigger. Computers is like that.

Daily Head Studies

A couple of sketch book pages of heads and skulls. I've been looking at oldie but goodie Burne Hogarth's Drawing the Human Head. I've never really cared for BH's work aesthetically, but the guy could draw til the cows came home and lays out some extremely good stuff about simplified forms and conceptualizing the head from a variety of angles. I'm finding that my biggest problem with drawing seems to be not having a solid enough conception of the basic forms in space. . . and sad things like proportion. I's trying to git in shape.

Daily Dinosaur Heads

 Gods. If you have ever felt the heart-rending truth that you will never see a living dinosaur, if you have ever fantasized about chucking it all to live in a natural history museum reading and doing studies of skeletons, or just wandering the desert looking for fossils, track this DVD down now: Dinosaur Drawing: Anatomy and Sketching. It almost brought tears to my eyes. Part of the Gnomon Workshop series, taught by the epically awesome David Krentz. Lovely stuff.
