Redneck Games

Here's a new illustration I'm working on. It's a little bit of a departure from all the serious looking images I've been creating as of late.

This one is a spread for the new Three in a Box editorial promotion, The Box Lunch. It features wacky festivals and holidays from around the world.

My image shows the annual Redneck Games down in East Dublin, Georgia. The games feature such events as the mud pit bellyflop, bobbing for pig's feet, Miss Big Hair USA, and a toilet seat horseshoe competition.

preview of what's to come...

Here's my first piece to a new set for an upcoming circus-themed art show.
I call it Squidward, because the SQUID-guy is upside-downWARD.

Fake Watercolour

Look closely. This was entirely done in Photoshop. Neato huh?

More Stripmalling

Another page from Stripmalling, the book by my author friend, Jonny. Hopefully it's not too low res.

Riddle me this -- last two panels: snow or stars?

Tyne - In Living Colour!

Hey dudes!

I just finished colouring the first page of Tyne. I really had a fun time with the hard rain falling. Let me know what you think.



This is an image I did a little while back for the cover of Manufacturing Automation - a trade magazine about machine design and technology for the industrial workplace. The concept was suggested by the art director and I think it was a really successful piece. I especially love the warpy perspective. I achieved it by putting my map sketch into photoshop and playing with it until I got the desired result.

During the process there was a little bit of a hot potato game going on between the workers as I was told to swap and change items on their person. The linear underwent quite a few revisions until the right number of females, males, ethnics, and trades were accounted for.

I'm still waiting on a printed version. Should be exciting to see since this magazine is printed at a large size.

Life Drawing - March 8/07

I'm really digging the new life drawing studio we've been going to lately since early-January. The ratio of female to male models makes my new sketchbook a pretty sight to see than my last sketchbook from the last studio labelled "sausage fair".

Luchador Challenge.
20 minutes...
5 minute drawing. She looks anime-ish.

Dirrty Sketches

I was assigned an illustration for an article in a magazine about 'World Orgasm Day' (December 22). Apparently, a few organizations have noticed that during times of great disaster or suffering, the crisis has a resultant impact on human emotions the world over and an actual physical effect on the earth itself. So, they declared World Orgasm Day to see if a major positive emotion on one day would have a positive effect on the mass populace and the world. So, first I sent them a few sketches.

Simple, but not too exciting.

A very satisfied earth.

Planner with all the day's important appointments listed.

This one was my favourite.

But they went with the planner instead. So I did a final, and it looks like so:

Its been a while since I posted anything. Between teaching part-time and making a videogame I and finding spare time to get the ball rolling on my personal work and graphic novel concepts. I enjoy coming up with strange ideas like these. Tell me what you think.
