Wearing my big boy pants


I managed to land my first, full time, in-house position with a small studio just a couple blocks from where I live. I really like everybody I work with, a couple of whom I knew before this job, and the team is small enough that we've all eaten lunch together every day since I started. That, in a nutshell, has been my dream for years now. This. Exact. Situation. Small company, small team, a product I'm excited about and can get behind, and a living wage. In a word, I'm stoked. Exhausted, but stoked.


Oh, and it's an art position. Probably important to mention that. I do the art thing.

Become the Crash

I have a nasty habit of making new blogs to separate my work. I've made a new blog for an ongoing project I'm going to be undertaking at http://becomethecrash.blogspot.com. There's only one post, and no pictures so far, but I would be more than happy if you would like to check it out!

I yet live!

Sorry for the lack of updatingness. I've been real busy looking for work, trying to get my apartment cleaned up, and stressing out about what I'm going to do this fall. I also have a show scheduled for November, so I've been trying to truck away and get some paintings done. I say show, but really it's just putting work up at Soulfood again. This time, though, it's just me, and I feel like I need to create enough work to fill two walls @_@.

A lot has happened the past couple months. Some good, but much bad. The book I did illustrations for came out, and seems to be doing well, my wife's grandmother died, one of my cousins committed suicide, and I fell headlong into one of the worst episodes of depression I have ever experienced. Oh, and I quit Digipen.

Initially I didn't think of it as quitting, that I was going to go back when I was better. I'm not going back. I love the majority of the faculty, I've learned and improved so much, but I've come to realize I hate the school. I'm not going to badmouth it or give specifics, but for me, personally, there wasn't a day in the past two semesters where I was happy to be there. Even if my goals remain the same, I just need to be somewhere else.

All that depressing stuff aside, picture!

Manly men

I don't draw or paint a whole lot of men. That pretty much explains this, I hope.

Nice day outside, feeling a bit better

I'm feeling a bit better today, and it really was a really nice day outside, so I spent a little time painting outdoors. Pardon the bad cell phone pictures >_<

Colored on the ipad

And getting sick, probably. I've felt like crap the past couple days. Anywho, I went ahead and colored the last sketch on my ipad. I'm not adroit enough with it yet to do anything fancy, but it's easy to use while lying in bed!

Daily sketch 002

Manga Studio

I felt like a huge, huge dork buying this software, but oh god is it good for inking.

Swimsuit elf! Daily sketch


Have I no shame? Well no, not really. I've been watching the Joe Benitez  dvd from gnomon.

You are a pretty lady



Just takin' a break.

More stuff that I did when I should have been sleeping


Actually did this over a week ago. Pulling pictures off the ipad can be a pain in the ass, though.

Solstice

This is what I worked on for most of this school year before I had to leave for medical reasons. I want to give a heartfelt thank you to Kyle, Jordan, Rob, Wes, Steven, Randy, Jeff, Kieran, David, and Frank for the opportunity to work with you guys. It was quite the positive experience, and I wish you all the best in the future.

I sincerely hope you enjoy this trailer, and I'll post here when a version is available for download and play!

I'd highly suggest actually watching this video on youtube, or full screening the HD version.

Bad sketches at bad diners 2, The Quickening



Now, You may be wondering why there is a digital speed painting down here, since I obviously didn't do it at the diner. Truth be told, the drawing I did of Cat was horrible. As much as I'm trying to keep these just as is, with all the scuff marks and bad erasing, etc, if I do a really bad drawing, and I know it's bad, I can't just leave it alone. So there you go!
