This is what you do? OK, great.

Trying out pencil/graphite. Ink is better.

The Two Things are Related

Presently, Mr. Cross sat across the artist, who was seated furtively with a furtive look playing across his features. In time, Mr. Cross would look at the art placed adjacent to his abattoir. Rising with a cross expression playing across his features, Mr. Cross crossed the room. Presently, he came to the abattoir, which was outside the room, adjacent to the building containing the room containing the furtive artist.

Presently Mr. Cross returned to the artist, with the express purpose of discussing the art. A clandestine smile playing across his cross features, Mr. Cross allowed himself a laugh. Placing the art adjacent to the artist, he exclaimed, laughing, "It's really all just the same thing again and again, is it not? You love your undressed women but I exclaim your art shows precious little interest in what they might say!"

The artist mumbled furtively and furiously, in a barely audible monotone. "I wouldn't be drawing if it wasn't for women, many of the artists I respect are women" he was saying, as Mr. Cross' expression became bemused. Presently, in the course of talking the artist remembered an incident earlier in the day, in which the artist had entered the same compartment of a revolving door as a woman, not noticing until the revolving door began to revolve, his feet banging against the compartment door as the compartment revolved. His face flushed with embarrassment and he began to shake.

He rushed out, feeling he might relieve himself on the spot, and came to the abattoir, where he was overcome with an urge to throw himself among the sheep. But he was overcome with fear when a malfunctioning machine malfunctioned furiously and the ground began to shake. He ran back to the room and gathered his art and rushed out furtively, intent on finishing the lace details of a woman's brassier he was presently in the course of drawing. Watching him leave, Mr. Cross allowed himself a laugh, wiped the blood on his smock and returned to the abattoir, where a sheep was stuck in one of the machines, spraying blood about the abattoir furiously.

All you need to know, in unrelated panels.

Once the whole thing is done I'll probably put it up on Carbonmade. I'll also be selling/giving it away at NYCC. It'll be like 16 pages.

Look out squid people!

Cover (maybe) to another comic I'm working on.

A bunch of not necessarily related sketches.

My nerdiest drawing ever, plus business

Power Girl fighting a beholder! Somewhere there is a fanfic where this has happened. Nerdiest of the nerds (like me) will object to this scenario, point out that Power Girl is a kryptonian (isn't she?) and as such she should be vulnerable to magic so there's no way she could beat up a beholder, don't make me laugh, she would just be disintegrated, duh.

Incidentally, I take commissions. Have you ever wanted a picture of Superman fighting Magneto as a Transformer, or Gorilla Grod taking a gorilla sized dump on Psylocke's chest? I'm your man. I don't judge. Unless it involves little girls and boys, in which case I'm letting the authorities know about you. Just to be clear.

I'm not fooling myself in thinking there's going to be a sudden outpour of demand, but I thought I might as well just put that out there. Contact me at the email address given if interested.

A deleted scene

Took out this Pulp Fiction semi-homage chapter break after I realized I had more than 40 pages for the minicomic I'm making, which is kind of awesome...I'm done with all the actual art, now all that remains is cleaning and printing. Look for it at MoCCA, at the SVA/Cartoon Allies table. The cover (with title) will look like this.

Something Complete

Blogger only lets me put up 4 images per post, so here's the first 4 pages from that comic. The next seven can be found at the carbonmade site. (The 11 make up the first part of a 3 part story)

Run! Cops, got, guns!

Chapter breaks in that comic I mentioned like a month ago? With the girl, and the zombies. It'll be available at MoCCA maybe.

More Krays

Tuesday, March 11, 2008

More of the Same

I have some Krays stuff done that's less crass, I'll have that up soon.

Anyway, Dave Sims new project, Judenhause (rhymes with Maus!) is here soon, and uh...I have this feeling that the Holocaust is like the Jewish version of 'the n word' like nobody else should talk about it? Except for Germans and Austrians, because at least they're owning up to their heritage? Like, what does Dave Sim know about being in a death camp? What does he have to say that hasn't been said by Spieglman or Wiesel? (or many others)

So, it's like the worst possible kind of bid for respectability after becoming comic's laughing-stock for his views on women, you know? But it made Neil Gaiman cry (I think?) and he's Jewish so maybe it has some merit. Not that I'm going to read it to find out.

Nothing more, nothing less

Always liked S. Clay Wilson. His art and his philosophy of ' you can draw whatever you want.' So that's what this comic I'm working on is, intentionally shallow exploitation. Misappropriation (which I put on hold after some advice from a former teacher) and the Krays comic had some sorta attempts at deepness and shit, but not here.

New address,...

You can now find me on carbonmade here. I'll probably keep this, it's good to have a sketch blog they say. But Carbonmade's all easy to use and professional and shit so I can use this address to say stuff like fuck Dave Izkoff of the New York Times book review, Bruce Campell didn't dodge zombies, he sawed them in half with his chainsaw. (not that zombies appeared in the Evil Dead movies) It's his thing. If you're going to open your review with an extended pop - culture reference, get it right. However, it does set the tone for a smug and condescending YA book review motivated more by an ideological agenda than...whatever reviews should be motivated by. Angry!

Misapropriation 0.5

The first page of the graphic novel I've been working on. I have 16 other pages scanned, but I think I'll hold back on posting them. Partially because I keep coming back and polishing them, and part because I've added pages between them. And partly because I'm not sure of the value of doing so.

And as usual, copyright of me.
