Here are a couple solo songs from my myspace page, in case the link was too hard to find.
I've been recording a lot of analog tape and was only recently able to get my recording software to work for me again.
I just recorded "part III" tonight in my excitement to have technology on my side again... listening to the song you will find no excitement in my voice, but trust me, its there!

I Got a New Job Making Art

It's been months since I've updated my blog, so I thought I would share what's been going on.
I've recently moved back home and found a job with QuickDraw Graphics, a graphic arts studio that works with many different companies and organizations to design logos , catalogs, t-shirts, vectored graphics, and more.

I am very excited about this opportunity and I think it will increase my artistic productivity, so no more waiting 4 months to throw new drawings up. (this drawing is actually quite old) No more Guitar Center for me.
So now we can all enjoy this page again.

Old People, Dead Worlds

These are some character ideas for my final project. I liked the suggestions I received from everyone and I'm going to boil eveything down to have it ready by next week.

I want to get started on this as soon as possible, 'cause I know I've let myself get a step behind everyone. Hopefully by next week I will have more information.

Nazi Nurses?

Here are some early sketches for the helix comic, again. These pages expand some ideas i've had, but might be kind of confusing still, but i'm confident the final product will be clear.

My thought process behind the helix comic - The male character has been undergoing involuntary biological tests in a lab/prison, and his body is changing after every injection. He wants to keep track of his time spent, slowly evolving into a monster behind closed doors, but without daylight, resorts to reciting nursery rhymes (the only thing he still remembers from his previous life).

This story has already changed considerably, so this might be completely different within a few days.

Elephant Gun

I've been doing a lot of sketches lately without any true sense of direction behind it, but through this I've realized how fascinated I am with age and gross out humor. For my final project, I'm going to explore these elements in different scenarios, creating a very detached comic, with mini comics within the larger story. I'm still working on a lot of details, but just wanted to update everyone on my progress!

This was my first rough sketch/storyboard/"i dont know what" of the helix comic done during class. This one was set up in a hospital or lab, with the male visibly sick and weak, and the female arrives with the final blow, a syringe filled with toxic/radioactive/snot material which would then somehow initiate the man's physical transformation, thus overpowering the female. This kind of seemed bland at first, but I've changed a lot and i'm really excited about finishing this now!

sketches from work

Most of these character sketches were done during work, so i tore out the ones i liked and crudely taped them into my sketchbook. None of these sketches are actual people, but they are highly influenced by people i see coming into work.
