Even MORE fun with Photoshop!

So I am still trying to work on my likenesses. I feel comfortable with my 'Marker' style.

My Christmas Day was wonderful! I visited with my girlfriends family and ate all day. There was a lot of driving between homes but it was still a great day! The best presents were a pair of UCLA sweatpants and digital picture frame. I also got an excellent hardcover book that I will have at the drawing table for the next few months. I hope everyone had a happy and healthy holiday!

Warriors Sighting

I picked up a copy of Amazing Spider-Man and found a Warriors AD inside! I usually stay away from MARVEL books these days, but I saw that Lee Weeks did the art for this issue. It's good to see that HarperCollins will promote their top book!

Funny photo

Ever since I have been working on a book that features cats, I have been distracted by cute pet photos and videos. I am trying not to be obnoxious about it. That being said, I will post one last cute snapshot with my own cute comment: This is one hot dog that bites back!

More fun with Photoshop

This is another old drawing that I have taken into Photoshop and played with. I love the atmosphere in those old british movies. I thought I would give it a try in color.

Greenpoint is Dirty

I used to live in Greenpoint, Brooklyn maybe 19 years ago. I have fond memories of the good times and good friends, but do remember the cold weather and stinky smells. The last time I visited NYC, I took a quick trip to the old neighborhood and I blogged about it.

Recently, I caught an article about how toxic the place is and how it's affecting the property values. Maybe I should even get a check up.Click Here!

Twin Princes

In 2004, I helped a friend with an animation job. He was storyboarding a movie called 'Twin Princes' and I drew out a bunch of boards. The plot involved a kingdom under the sea and all kinds of battles. Kinda cool. It was an Asian production and I think they wanted a western take on the story, but I don't think the project ever saw the light of day.

The Best Of 2008

The January 2009 issue ofWizard Magazine has a Best Moments in comics section. I guess this is the time of year for it, but included with the best Artist and best Hero section, there is a Best Moments of 2008. "The Best Moments" include exposed private parts and dead infants. I know that there were much more to read this year and I would like to tell you what I consider the best comicbook story of 2008.

The Astro City Character Special published this year really got to me. It told the story of Beautie, a robot hero with no memory of her origins. She has spent years looking for answers, not understanding why she feels so sad. Beautie has friends but she does not know how to relate to them and often makes others uncomfortable. We come to discover that she was created by a young girl to be her companion. When the girls' robot making father discovers the child's creation, he orders her to get rid of it. Angry and hurt, she yells at her own 'child' to go away and 'forget'. Beautie leaves, spending years trying to remember and understand.

I could relate to the sadness of the little girl and the confused offspring trying to understand a parent. It was a good story. I recommend it.
