East Coast friends!

I have just returned from a successful trip from New York City. I should tell you that the weather there is just like in Los Angeles and I was a little disappointed. I brought my heavy coat for nothing, but did see a few short skirts! A highlight of the trip was dinner at a most excellent barbecue restaurant in Brooklyn.

There was a group of us having dinner there for the first time and the food was delicious!

The guy is familiar...

I came across this photo at WireImage and I could hardly believe what I saw there! This is Comic Book Writer and Novelist Chris Claremont at The 71st annual New York Film Critics Circle Awards. Is he a member of The Circle? Does he have a film out? If anyone has any info, please let me know!

Hey kids! Let's draw!

I came across a copy of a Wonder Woman from the 40's the other day. The drawing style was really different than todays' style and I love how the storylines always include a bondage scene! I wanted to draw something quick.

Tree burning

Every around this time, my friends Kev and Rob host a tree burning. They invite all their friends to a California beach and at a coal pit on the sand, they burn discarded X-Mas trees! Great Idea huh? I have attended many times and I recommend it. The best part is how people stare into the burning coals mesmerized by the glow.

My new Computer

I now own a new G5. It has a new computer smell and the desktop is bright and clear of folders(for now). I managed to grab a copy of Adobe Creative Suite and I am ready to work! Ok.... Does anybody have any work?

Fun with computers...

I have the majority of this weekend dealing with a computer that refused to start. It refused to work! Nothing! Not even a light or sound. I did everything the Apple manual tells you to do and I went so far as to call the 1-800 help desk. Even after paying the punk $50.00 he was of no help. I drove to the Apple store in Santa Monica and the Genius there was a lot more helpful and he gave advice for free! I think I am angry because after trying all I could, I went to my tried and true method of fixing a problem , And that is throwing money at it. I have to have a computer to work, and since the old G4 is now a paperweight, a new G5 is needed. Spending this much money on a computer and all the additional attachments is a hard pill so close to tax time. I am definitely in a sad mood.

Fun with a brush

I had a spare moment the other day and I did some brush sketches. I used one of those synthetic brushes that can never deliver a shark point. It is handy tho.

A photo from the archives

I found myself flipping through my old box of photos and found this little gem. I took this shot after landing in Sydney, Australia in 1994. The pilot and the staff was so friendly, I asked if I could take a quick shot of myself in the pilot seat. The Co-pilot's seat was empty and the first pilot gave me his hat to wear. I think I wanted the shot for reference. Whatever the reason, I'm glad I have the shot! Of course, this photo would be impossible today.

My Resolution

I am not a big fan of New Years Resolutions. I feel that if you want to change, there is no time like NOW. Don't wait until January to lose weight or change a habit from bad to good. I am making this particular resolution because of my previous post. I thought about it and realized how egotistical I was redrawing and correcting some guys artwork. Who do I think I am anyway? Therefore, my resolution is to become more modest and not critique bad artwork. And I will start NOW.
