“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

A DAY LATE_90 minutes


"Ever watch G4's 'Attack of the Show'? I get to watch that show completely by accident because my buddy Jon loves him some Olivia Munn...."

"...Don't watch TV. It'll just slow you down".




So yeah...after posting as I did earlier this morning, I gave it some thought, realized I'm a TERRIBLE jerk and decided to just take it down. I've left the main points as to why I'm a day behind with this 90 minute exercise, but everything else in the middle was mean-spirited, not at all productive and just plain bad for karma.

Okay, that's all. Apologies for the soapbox. So to recap:

"Boooo Canete. Hoooray Munn!"

CAT VS. BAT_90 minutes


This one took a couple of tries - even now it's still not quite right. But whatever. Why do I draw the old, BM:TAS 'Catwoman' outfit (and even then, why do I draw her with a tail when she didn't have one in that version) instead of the current one? I don't know...this version's more fun to draw, I guess? I'm not that smart? I'm too lazy to go find reference?

Pick one.

DONT CALL IT A COMEBACK_90 minutes


You may play LL Cool J's 'Mama Said Knock You Out' for the full effect of that statement.

Anyway, I didn't equip Bane what the Flemish call his 'accoutrement' - his trademark mask, his trademark venom gauntlet, his trademark costume, etc - so he may not be so easily reconizable. Whatever. Bats is about to choke the accoutrement out of you, you Lucha Libre reject.

BTW, 90 minute exercises are back. Thanks to my buddy, Norm Ryang, for reminding me that I used to be able to do this sh*t daily, and to Wes Alvitre for her lullaby-ish comment on the previous post. Forgot the point of the blog for a month or two there. Apologies, all - allow me to remedy that.

WIZARD WORLD PHILADELPHIA_sketches








Good show, I had a fun time, Dustin Nguyen is a rockstar. Pardon the poor quality of the images as all of them are taken with my digital camera - or because I drew them. I used to laugh at all the, "Hey can you draw me 'Wolverine'?" requests and never really had an opportunity to do so before, but now I know he's pretty fun to draw. Thanks to all the people who dropped by and asked me to sketch for them.

One post in almost a month? That's just intolerable.
