C'mon and vote HACKENSLASH!

Look, people, the time draws near for this round to be over and the whopping lead that Hackenslash had over the Die-ities is getting smaller.
If you're out there...and you're reading this...which you probably aren't because I have blog traffic...I'm asking you to go vote Hackenslash. Clearly the superior team.
So get out there and get voting at Fistacuffs!

I almost forgot!

I designed my first tattoo recently for a friend and she just had it done. Check it out. I hope she doesn't mind me plastering the picture all over the place. I should probably check. She sings in a band -hence the clef and her daughter's birth flower is the lily of the valley. I sketched several concepts, but this is the one everyone liked the best. I'm working on a design for my friend...who happens to be her brother and I'm also working on a design for myself. Hopefully, I'll settle on something and maybe I'll get it this summer! I'll post my sketches soon.


Not much time left, folks. Better head on over to the polls...or...well...blogs at Fist-a-cuffs and vote! Sincerest apologies for the lack of swankness to the ol' poster, but I had to do courtroom sketches at the John Ford trial for work today and I'm worn out. 30 minutes on this and I'm off to la la land. Will I dream of VICTORY??..or DEFEAT???

Not Sweet Victory!

It seems that Hackenslash has begun the untidy process of cleaning the clocks of Team Awesome As Hell. I don't want to sway the fight against fate's will, but I do ask all of you to stop on by Fistacuffs and vote. No...don't just vote...VOTE YOUR CONCSIENCE!

Stay tuned for a message from your good friend The Trampoline!

Sweet Victory!

Sweet Victory! Team Awesome As Hell survived the first round and has progressed to round two. It is a terrible twist of fate, however, that we are going up against the mighty Hackenslash. Who will win?? Either way the victory will be bitter-sweet...not unlike the chocolates I'm stuffing into my face right now!

Can the police be trusted?

Maybe I shoud try posting some actual art...

This is a flying lighthouse. Broken-hearted robot lads from distant galaxies use them for travelling to earth in what usually turn out to be failed attempts at stealing the moon in hopes of towing it back to their previously mentioned distant galaxies so as to win back the hearts of certain robot lasses. That was an awesome run-on sentence.

Anyway, this piece is a couple of years old, but as I've yet to get a chance to complete the story and/or website that accompany it...I like to keep it around. It makes me feel bad for being a slacker. Hopefully, that will change this year as I attempt to finish...and by finish I mean restart where I left first graphic novel "The Moon Story."

I'm not really a slacker. I work 5 days a week as a newspaper illustrator, sometimes freelancing in educational comics...and other sometimes I teach.

The lighthouse and cliff edge are were inked, scanned, colored in photoshop, and then placed on a scan of the moon and sky painted in gouache. This was one of the first times I inked with a brush and I was still getting used to it. I look forward to revisiting this piece sometime soon.
