Wuz Entmee Redux


This is over on the Vice Magazine website for the moment. If you wanna read about what a "GAY" "shit" "rip off" it is, go check out their comments section!

Also, me good buddy Chris McD has a neat comic up there now too.

Oops


Oops. I posted a pic of this painting in an unfinished state last weej. Since that picture was taken I added the blue background-type area around the figure to define him a little better in the space.

Some King spots - pt.4




A few sports spots. Up top we've got Tony Parker and Eva Longoria, then there's David Stern, and finally it's Oscar De La Hoya vs. Floyd Mayweather

Omega-3 Enhanced



This one was on the cover of the Dining section of the New York Times on Wednesday. The article is about a new (and questionably effective) trend of adding nutrients from one food (anchovies, for example) to another unrelated food (that orange juice you're drinking).

monitor self portrait


This is me sitting in my cubicle at Gem Studio (a storyboarding company no longer in existence) about 5 years ago. I traced my reflection on the monitor in Photoshop. Above me are the fluorescent lights, natch, and those little black rectangles on the windows are outward-facing cardboard American flags.

Self Portrait of Me and Tom

Of course, its just a double self portrait of me, but the double self portrait takes on an additional meaning if you have an identical twin brother.

Get me out of here!

Here's one I'd forgotten about for years... This was a gift for my buddy Farel (and also a submission to the Meathaus collective's one-time-only never-to-be-seen-again mini-comic/sketchbook "Beef Apartment") featuring Sinclair, the main character from Farel's exquisitely crafted comic book series "Pop Gun War".

Big Dreams

Another old comic I made. My favorite. It's based on an actual pattern of dreams I sometimes have (not lately) about giant threatening things that are large enough to be terrifying despite being somehow far away - but the distance causes the terror to be somehow less immediate, more intellectual/reflective than emotional/instinctual.

Pencil versions

Here are the unmodified pencil/ink versions of a few of my recent pieces. Although a lot is gained when the color is eventually added, a little something is always lost too.

Cowboy MBAs

Here's a piece I just finished up for American Way, the American Airlines in-flight magazine.

The article is about college programs specifically for aspiring ranchers (an extraordinarily complex occupation.)

Carried Over

A little trick I use to add some unexpectedness to a given piece is to, while its in its early stages, wipe off excess paint from a brush or knife I was using to work on a different piece onto it. In this case, the area of red, brown, and blue on the leg was carried over from this painting. Then I added the zigzag and began to respond to the new colors as I continued working.
