School is for fools, and that's probably the reason I'm a teacher. Either to stop the fools from being fools or because I am a fool. I'll let you decide.

In either case, I decided to buy a little tiny pocket sized moleskin sketchbook about a month ago. I was buying something at Barnes and Nobles (probably a Warhammer40k book) and it was there staring me in the face on the impulse buy line. It was a 3 pack of these little buggers, the fit perfectly inside pants pockets and I barely know its there.

So everyday I've been trying to draw a little doodle. Just something for fun, and to keep my mind occupied. I would also be lying if I didn't mention Jon Burgerman being a major influence in this realm.

I now present to you, my mental droppings. Enjoy or despise.

My Saturday Night

Some people, scratch that, most people are out doing some with other people. Fortunately I havent left this room other than walking the dog or going to the bathroom.

I have no life, and aside from missing the wife, this is fun for me. Though it wouldnt hurt to have other people around.

Nth Man

The Nth Man is a FANTASTIC comic, and I have bought all the issues I didn't buy when I was a kid online so I have the complete set. Yesterday instead of leaving my house, I decided to make myself massively depressed and took all my comic books out and started reading them.

Nth Man was something my father probably encouraged me to read, but I'm not sure. It's got all the cold war stuff I definitely didn't get when I was a kid, but it also has ninja's so I might have bought it myself. Anyway it's only 16 issues long and I get to the 16th issue when I turn the second page to find out half the page has been cut out of page 3, 7, and 16. I shit bricks. I can kind of half ass guess the ending but I'm not sure. The ending's a little week anyways because the book probably wasn't selling well and it feels rushed. But regardless I love it and I'm pissed I have to re-buy issue 16.

That being said, being a shut in caused me to peruse the internet for something other than pornography and I strolled through a few artists blogs and flikr streams. Then I mentally beat myself up for not making more art and not making ANY money from doing what I love. After that...well I used the internet and I'll leave that up to your imagination.

Today I didn't leave the house at all again, and watched football. Now I should preface this by stating that I like football but I don't LOVE football, however I turn the games on and watch 'em while drawing or sleeping. During the Giants game I drew the "ALL THEY SEE IS CRIME IN THE CITY" sketch, and during the Eagles game I drew the following pages. I was playing with markers because the crime in the city sketch ruined the next page.

I tried something new and then fell back onto my comfort zone. I'm going to ask everyone to let me know what they think but I know only Rita will. <3


Just found this video. And...just wow.

Anyone who's visited my apartment knows that I have a huge EL MAC print hanging in my kitchen. I spent like a grand getting the bitch framed.

Here's a video of a mural he did with another writer named RETNA. It's gorgeous:

Misery Competition

All of the posted links are SFW.

I feel like I really did a lame thing this week in not really pushing the boundaries of what I could do. The topic is the 1980's. For whatever reason I just couldn't think of anything to do. Which is retarded because there's so many different things you can do. So much creativity came out of the Reaganomics depression.

Anyways, what I came up with is based off of a SKEME piece. I saw it on a documentary called Style Wars that kind of blew my mind and ruined my perceptions.

Here's the original piece:

And here's my version from the safety of my sketchbook, which is why I feel like it's a cop out. I should have gotten out and wrote in the city. Instead I did this from the safety of my couch while watching football.

The best part about SKEME is that he's still writing.

Kinda update

But not MASSIVE updates. Just finished digital inks and color swatch test.

More "peet's process" than anything else. Hopefully someone, someday, anybody will actually give a shit.
I'm not so stoked on the the laser blasts, but everything out is kinda cool.

My eyes..they hurt

So friggen badly. It's probably from the computer monitor, or the way my desk light gets reflected BACK into my face when I'm drawing. Either way..I'm totally stoked to see that my phone can post updates.


Even though I kinda want the new r2d2 droid.

Anyways, so the last entry was just a picture of my sketchbook and the sketch I was working on. I got off my lazy butt this "morning" (I woke up at noon) and scanned in the drawing and my sketchbook.

Here they are, later today or tomorrow I'll post the digitally inked/colored versions.

Also thanks to Rita for ALWAYS commenting, unlike the rest of you lurkers.

And here's the same exact thing, just twisted so you don't have to crane your neck to see.

And here's the final sketch below.

Phone photo!

Just checking to see if I can update via phone. Especially if I can do this during the school year.
