Sketch: A few hours each.

While hanging with a friend of mine at Wondercon today, he mentioned that sexiness is as much in the eyes as in the body language. I have to pay more attention to the faces in these sketches. I may go back and tweak the previous studies a little bit just to bring them in line with this new aesthetic. :)

He also clued me in to another fact of Wondercon. Since I am a professional in the entertainment industry I get a free pass to the show. All these years paying to get into the show and here all I had to do was fill out a form.


I know I shouldn't be celebrating this....but....

This is great.

Woman got what she deserved. And what the fuck is going on that this shite is happening now? It just seems that there's all this weird, absolutely mind twisting crap going on recently with these women who are trying to cut babies out of pregnant women's wombs.

Maybe it happens all the time and national news just isn't picking it up most of the time. But this is some pretty heinous behavior. I'm sure most of the cases would get national attention.

Missouri....Kansas....What is it something in the Mississippi waters? All that midwest drudgery making *some* people stir crazy?

Whatever. Another flipping freako off the streets. Good riddance.

Sketch: Who knows how long? 2 hours each.

Still render crazy. I like how the left one turned out. The right one is in a pseudo-sado submissive position. Picture her in leather bindings and a choker.......uh, if you must.

I was wondering when a strib club would do this... one of our more "conservative" states.

Seems like one of the better options for capturing in charcoal these beautiful creatures in their native habitat. Although most of the drawings would have to be "gesture" drawings.

Sketch: 45 minutes.

Okay, I freely admit this is some disturbing imagery. but I wasn't thinking about it when I was sketching this. It was just stream of consciousness sketching. It kind of hit me after I was done.

So, here you are.....a half naked guy running with a knife.

Honestly, I'm not disturbed.

Buzz Bunny!?!

Man, you know you've reached the ninth circle of hell when hollywood starts "updating" the classic cartoon characters to make them "hip and fresh" for the kids today. I ask you; how the heck can Bugs Bunny be any hipper? That's one damn cool rabbit.

This is going to bite WB in the ass and taint the good name of the original and only Warners characters. Somebody slap Mr. Sander Schwartz. But first tell him he has a great first name.

...and then slap him.

I want to know the secrets of the Yellow Bamboo.

I wonder if there's a cliff notes for it?
Sketch: 90 minutes.

Twins......but not identical.

Sketch: 90 minutes on the human woman. 2 hours on her sister. The left one is two minutes older than the right one. And whereas the left sister is creative and very giving, the right sister is coldly logical and malevolent. And as usual, their father has trouble telling them apart.

There be color sketches here!

About 2 hours on each. Yep. Taking longer than it should because I'm still noodlin' the rendering. I got a wild hair to do a color sketch, so here it is. I call the one on the left "Edenfield's Davidena". The pose is reminiscent of Michaelangelo's David. I didn't see it until it was finished.

More at DailyKOS

Next stop.....quadruple mind fuck of a story

Praise G-d and pass the ammunition!

There's no such thing as American Taliban, right? This story doesn't go a long way to disproving it. At least the original author was as disgusted as I.

Where were teachers like this.......

....during my formative grade school years?

I got it it bad...I'm hot for teacha

What the fuck is up with all this teacher/underage student shit recently?

"Some things never change"

I submitted this illustration to this year's spectrum fantasy art book. The original size is 25 X 33 - digital. If it gets in, you will be able to see a much larger version of it.

Sketch: About 2 hours each.

I'm getting really noodly with these all of a sudden. Putting a lot more time into each one. So much so that it's making my previous attempts look like ass (no pun intended). I think it has something to do with this contract gig I have. I have to create these avatars and I'm spending hours on making these really tightly rendered forms. It's definitely influencing the way I render my sketches.

I don't know if I will loosen up again or stay with the tightly rendered look.

I don't have much to comment on in the world, so here are some links to chew on.

Link 1 pearl 2
Link 2 shine my shoe
Link 3 insanity
Link 4 never more

Mattis' comments were not meant for civilian ears.

I haven't been reading the paper for the last couple of weeks. I've had this freelance gig on the peninsula. I have to be there on site which means I have to drive on the highway for an hour, be there for a full eight, and drive home at rush hour for another hour. Needless to say, I ain't used to the schedule.

Anyway, I'm only vaguely aware of what's happening in the world through short news breaks on the radio. Something I thought I would weigh in on is the whole flap about what Marine general Mattis said a few days ago.

Having served in the Marines, I've known jarheads like Gen. Mattis. These guys are a breed of human who can actually switch this behavior on and off. It's a defense mechanism for dealing with the nature of their jobs. It's why men like this are able to go to war and fight yet come home to their family and live a quasi normal life. Everybody has a different way of dealing with the circumstances of their surroundings. Guys like Mattis deal with it by dehumanising their "enemies".

I certainly don't condone what the General said, but I understand the behavior. It's drilled into Marines the minute they set foot on a Marine Corps Recruit Depot. They're building warriors, not diplomats. The job of a Marine is to "close with and destroy the enemy with fire and close combat", not play tiddly winks with them. I can safely assume that the General never took pleasure in killing the enemy, if indeed he has killed in combat. What he said was a swaggering gesture pure and simple. It was basically a self-masterbatory puffing of the chest to give the General command of the room. People shouldn't read too much into what he said.

I don't and I am as far away from the guy I was in the Marines as I could possibly get.
And now for something completely different: I'm likin' the Dreidel Maidel.

Sketch: A little longer than expected. I was noodling this one because there was something always no quite right. But I am happy with the final version. Looks kinda like Ellen Barkin.

I live a charmed life.

I've gotten four emails recently from hot chicks who all want to have sex with me. They're in New York and they're tired of being married and they just want to have some fun.......with ME!! Tee Hee! They want a discreet, single man with whom to chat and then cheat on their husbands. That fits me to a tee.

I am so discreet it's like I don't even exist. Yeah, top the discreetness that I am right there. Like, most guys would blab the names of these girls to everyone and anyone, but not me. Rest assured Angela McGill, Kay Campbell, Jasmine Kyle, and Katelyn Irvin. Your secret tryst with me will be put away in a lock box never to be uncovered. This is my promise to you, you sexy vixens you.

I'm weighing my options now. I mean, there's FOUR of them. Yeah, they all want me and I could probably take them all at once. But I've got to leave some of the hot ladies for one of those poor schmos out there who ain't gettin' any. I'm not a greedy man! So I think I will leave Katelyn out of the festivities. Her name is spelled weird and it disturbs me.

But that's not the most suprising part. No no no. I get propositioned all the time in emails. It's like an avalanche sometimes! I don't know how all these women got my email address, but I'm glad spammers haven't gotten it! Anyway, that's not the surprising part. The surprising part is the hidden message they've sent at the bottom of the email.

It was hidden as off white text on the white background. Being the sharp guy I am I just clicked and dragged and was able to see the message. The first one had to do with the evidence in the poisoning of Yushchenko being "rock solid". I pondered what Angela meant by sending me this. She was clearly a woman concerned about the state of affairs in the world. I was intrigued. Here is this woman who wants to cheat on her spouse with me, yet she also wants me to be informed of world events. She was a dichotomy, a mystery, a Rubiks Cube to be solved. I was never able to solve a Rubiks Cube when I was younger, goddamnit. I resolve to solve THIS one!

After I have sex with her.

The second message was from Kay. She seemed to be really concerned with supermassive black holes and explosions in space. There was some other stuff about Xrays and galaxies light years away. Wow! I thought. What was her story? She could be an astrophysicist who has become bored with her very bright but horrible in bed husband. It's a story I've heard many times. Who can blame her for wanting to be with such an exiting guy as I! I will most assuredly explore the wonders of this enchanting and absorbing woman! I will go where no man has gone before!

Yes, I will have sex with her!

The third message was from Jasmine. Unfortunately, she sent the same message to me as did Angela. Already informed as I was to the "rock solid" nature of the evidence in the Yushchenko poisoning case, I was a little disappointed in Jasmine. But her name conjured up images of a Moroccan goddess who only wishes to escape the confines of her restrictive marriage and feel the embrace of an american infidel. I couldn't let her down. She deserves to know true ecstacy.
Who am I to deny her simple request?

She will be bedded. THIS I DECREE!!

And Katelyn? Well, I don't like Katelyn's name. I'm getting more disturbed the more I think of it. Plus she sent the same Yushchenko story. I can forgive Jasmine. But Katelyn? NEVER! She will never know the pleasures of me.

Click the link below to see the email evidence. Seriously, I received these emails. Anybody out there want to parse the underlining meaning of these messages? The top part I understand. Typical spammo garbagio. But what's with the frickin' current events at the bottom?
Sketch: Hmm. I've been working this freelance gig down in Redwood City. I have to leave my wacom tablet there. And I can't do a sketch without the tablet. Okay, I could do one traditionally. But I don't wanna, ma!!

This scene was done a few years ago. It's of the marina in SF.
