HAPPY 1ST Fayina!!!

Our neice Fayina had her first birthday on 3/20/2009! Leave to me to find some way to squeeze in a tit in a 1-year-olds birthday card. Hehe. I'm sure it'll get laughs from mom Olga and Dad Ryan!

Ain't posted in a while... this is what I been doin!

Here's my green Worksman folding bike that has weathered a long winter folded up up under the stairs behind it. He's a rusty bitch!
Here's both Tati's and my bikes in the process of being stripped and painted.

Here he is after sanding, cleaning and painting. It looks really sweet now! There is a little bit of detailing left. I also would like to sand down and repaint the body at some point. It started raining when I was finishing up so I've yet to finish Tati's bike. We gonna look like bicycling pimps yo!

Job part 1: Thumbs version 2

Here's a more legible version of the first few pages from Job. It's all really the same with a few exceptions. Not quite sure about the first few panels on pg 1.
Tightened pace.

Mostly the same.

The notes say it all. Anywho... We'll see what happens next as far as pencils go. Can't wait!

Job Thumbs part 2

That evening, after the birth of Job's children, he holds his first born and relishes in the prospect of a comfortable and joyous future at the office with his family and their new diety.
Job's speech continues. And lays his eldest to rest.

Job then wanders off to create his idol. The next morning Francis makes his way into work and notices something near his desk... a strange figure "nibbled" into the shape of a man, and Francis just might know who the artist is. The last page is really just a place-holder, but really needs to be a sort of "!" moment. So we'll see.
So that pretty much completes the thumbs for the first Job min-comic. Let me know what ya'll think.

Job Chapter 1 Thumbnails

Here's the first thumbs for JOB. Some may be indecipherable Enjoy!
Job and his wife make their way into the building and past the traps. Francis gets agitated and breaks his pencil. He slouches, grumbling to himself, and then stands up and stretches. Job and his wife make their way into the kitchen and under the vending machine.
F grumbles and counts his change then punches in the code for Twinkies. The machine dispenses. J + W look on.

F fumbles the Twinkies and it drops. The package slaps on the floor and a loose twinkie bounces... landing right in front of J+W. Surprise!

F says hello. Mice look on and F picks up the still packaged twinkie. He tries to calm the mice. F backs out of the room and turns back to find the mice and the twinkie have vanished!

The story of Job begins!

So my fellow Center for Cartoon Studies alumn Mario Van Buren has been here in Boston, allowing us precious time to iron out the specifics for the Job book. Things have been going really well, and I know the book is gonna knock it outta the park. We'll keep you posted!

Just goofing around with the paints in ArtRage. If it's not obvious, I'm still learning lil-by-lil the ins and outs of this whole tablet thing. It's like having an art store at your fingertips. It's also like taking art class all over again. I don't/haven't really messed around with color too much in my art life... to stressful and costly. It's great to be able to just fuck around and try different things... not that I couldn't anyway. Lord knows how many art supplies I've got around here!

my setup

A quick (and bad ) photo of my setup. The Cintiq is the coolest thing since sliced bread!!! I'd like to point out the PS3, Wii, and 360. Sweet!


A quick conte Petal in ArtRage. I'm am totally finding a new path, thanks to the Cinitq. Worth every penny!!!

Portrail of Pistil

This a chalk image in ArtRage of Pistil from my story The Petal Files. Also the Cintiq feels more and more like real media the more I use it!

Hitler Love

A doodle that began as a self portrait then somehow turned into this. What would Freud say? Mostly I was just goofing around with some brushes for skin and stuff.

It's headed right for us!!!

A painting of a squid I did in photoshop using a few custom brushes. It was painted on a lark after I drew the squid for no apperant reason.

A couple of quick inks on GOD, from a work in progress taken from the bible about Job.

My first Cintiq creation... and a true-to-life one at that!

Awaiting salvation...

All day at work, I've been fantasizing about my Cintiq and what I will do to it when it finally arrives... any minute now.

Eve of CINTIQ!!!

The tablet shall arrive with near ejaculatory satisfaction in the morn'. I believe that the pace and quality of my work will explode into our ocipital receptors with ass-grabbing ferocity!
To be cont...
