color illustration of Dr Doom

The image on top is my take on a panel of Larry Lieber story panel of Marvel Villain Team Up Annual #1. I like the way he draws DR. Doom.

I'm still here

This is one bad film that I saw last weekend, the downfall of Joaquin Phoenix who retired from acting to become a hip hop artist. It might be an elaborate hoax, scenes in the film seem stage (crying out his failures in New York park or your friend defecating in your mouth) but who really cares. Why would you spend two years on life a making this with little or no point. I used to like his acting and thought he played a wonderful Johnny Cash in I Walk the Line, but now I hope he gets helps. A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

Fiverr part 1

Starting today I'll be writing about art that I did for the site called Fiverr. What is Fiverr? You may ask. Well its a site people  share things they're willing to do for $5 or for trade.  I posted myself as an artist for a site and did a series of images. Some were fun like the on top. This was requested from a radio dj, who wanted his face and his friend on the famous photo of Sid and Nancy for the early 1980's. For return I received a couple records for the illustration. Overall a fun job.

Batman's Ego

I picked up a couple of Darwyn Cooke's comics on ebay, which came in the mail Monday. Batman Ego was the first that I read which was also the  first issue the Cooke ever published. 
Here are some of my thoughts.

Pretty good, the art remind me of Bruce Timm's Batman's Adventure cartoon, Art deco buildings fill Gotham city with a splash of German Expressionism. 

Although Darwyn Cooke hates the how deconstructionism has destroy superhero comic in today's market, he begins with this idea using self-involved psycho-babble dialogue between Bruce Wayne and The Batman. The rest of the book is dedicated to Batman talking to Batman, asking questions such as why not kill The Joker? This gets a little dis interesting but overall it's a solid read and one of the few writers who can understand the idealism of being a hero.

Always been a fan of Sherlock Holmes and  just finished the series today, decided to rave about the TV program. In this modernized version of the Conan Doyle characters, using his detective plots, Sherlock Holmes lives in early 21st century London and acts more cocky towards Scotland Yard's detective inspector Lestrade because he's actually less confident. Doctor Watson (played by  Martin Freeman who's staring in the the upcoming role of Bilbo Baggins in the next two Hobbit flicks) is now a fairly young veteran of the Afghan 'peace-keeping' fights, less adoring and more active.

 Sherlock is co-created and written by Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffa from the Dr Who, they add wonderful dialog such as, "I'm not a psychopath, Anderson, I'm a high functioning sociopath, do your research, homes. Apart from the dialog the plot is thick with detail leaving me wanting me more after three episodes. Lets hope they do another season it will be a shame for this show to die off.

characters for a epic journey

Almost finished with one third of the Rada the cat graphic novel, this was the first page where I did a rough draft brainstorming various characters and objects that I wanted to use in the story. I do like God as a childlike beam of light but haven't found a space for it yet.

Dogma Hurley

I was a big fan of Lost and overall was pleased on how it ended. I would like to see a comic on the further adventures of Hurley and Ben, hell I would even consider drawing it.

 Here's a shirt design for my girlfriend who got me interested in the wonderful world of kayaking. We have been wanting to go kayaking the last two weekends but having terrible luck with the overhaul of rain. I have a fondness of rowing backwards in the river which is want the goat is doing.

Walter white

Big fan of Amc Breaking Bad, lead star Bryan Lee Cranston. Breaking Bad is the story of Walter White (Bryan Cranston), a struggling high school chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with terminal lung cancer at the beginning of the series. He breaks down and turns to a life of crime, producing and selling methamphetamine with his former student Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) in a desire to secure his family's financial future. Now that Lost is over, this might be my favorite show for the time being.

Review of Free Comic Day 2010

 Here's a mini review of  comics that I read last night that were handed out on free comic day. Special thanks for Source and Games, located in St Paul, Mn for the bag full of comics. 

Drawn and Quarterly- The John Stanley grab-bag, (see pic above). Loved it, an underrated master of storytelling, laughed out loud to the Tubby short story and was great to see Choo Choo charlie. If you ever want to get your kids to start to read comics, this is perfect place to start!

IDW- classic comic strip. Another keeper, slick design on paper, glossy color. This comic gives a  intro to Rip Kriby, X-9 and Archie newspaper comic strips. Another plus was Polly and Her Pals comic Sunday strip, a rare style of art deco, Dadaism and surrealism pushing the idea of what comic can do.

Fantagraphics Books-Weathercraft. Jim Woodring wordless comic of Frank's world. Rich in storytelling, mysterious in plot, not every ones cup of tea. Either you get or you don't!

Marvel. Iron man and Thor. Hey look a recent comic came out from Marvel that I quite enjoyed! Good writing, excellent artwork, the heroes take on villains that you wouldn't expect from the house on the hill.  Also nice that i didn't have to buy 30 more comics to finish the story line.

Dark Horse- Doctor Solar and Magnus the Robot Fighter. Oh God, this was hard to get thur. Clunky script from Jim Shooter, horrible art on Doctor Solar. Magnus art does get better but such a lackluster story. Yawn, hello Half Price.

DC- Superman. War of Superman. Hated it so much, we get to find out that Old Krypton becomes a new planet full of powerful superman, who are about to attack earth. So many superman like characters, who is Mon El, Flamebird, Assassin, Reactron? Who care? What made superman great was that he was one of a kind.  And why is Lois lane's father Sam Lane hate Kryptonians so much like superman.  This is reason why i don't pick up new comics, plus I need to buy the multi comics to get the whole story. Trash it!
