Something New Has Been Added!

Hello there all you happy people. I will start this post with 2 guest artists, my cousin Reid Gennutt and my good friend Stephen Wright, of all people!

Here is Reid's birthday card to me, I'm not sure how old I was....maybe 6 or 7.

This card is amazing. I love that it looks like it was printed on receipt paper.

Here is Steve's card. It may very well have been the same birthday.

On the back, there was a drawing Steve drew and erased, I tried to make it visible.

One of my favorite cards ever, and one of the only documented times Stephen took a pencil to paper. 

Here's some crap I did the past week. I bought a new tiny little sketch book, and it's fun to doodle mindlessly in.

I dunno. I just started moving the pencil without thinking and this happened.

I kinda like this guy. I've been reading "Scud: The Disposable Assassin" lately. If you can find the book anywhere, you must pick it up. This guy is kinda similar to Rob Schrab's stuff.

That's all I have for now. I haven't had much time to draw. Come back some other time.

Blogger Sucks my Ass

Goddammat anyway, apparently you have to be some kind of rocket surgeon to get this site to display a proper thumbnail link... so I give up for now. I kinda got it to work, it takes you to this "Picasa" image bank, where it displays my images.... you can kinda sort through and zoom in on the pictures. It still pretty much sucks ass, but it's better than it was. So I encourage you to pour over every detail, in all it's splendid high rez glory.

Great Scott!

Holy Moses, somehow I managed to draw something! I decided that my slump problem was due to a cursed sketchbook. Trust me, that's what the problem was. So I inked this with my rad brush pen, and coloured it with my rad pencil crayons. I needed a break from all the digital stuff I've been doing lately. Here it be:

Me and art are like peas and carrots again.

Sorry, I have nothing new to post. In fact, there's been a whole LOT of nothing lately. I'm in the slump of the century. God, I swear, I used to love drawing. I'd go for coffee, sit myself down, and draw for hours. Lately....nothing. I stare at my sketchbook for 10 minutes, scribble on the page, then erase what I drew and go home. It's the worst thing ever, I feel useless. Moreso than usual, anyway. This is crap! Crap, goddammat! Somebody post cool ideas for drawings in the comments, maybe that will get me going. Here's a sketch I will do right after I write this sentence:
You can tell it's me because I added the dot on my forehead.

And Now For Something Completely Different

...Uhm, wow. Just look at these masterpieces. Just yipes.

So once upon a time I came up with this idea for a character. The name came to me before anything else did. I was sitting in this shitty art class I took in Regina in.....winter, 2005. Her name would be "Ms. Fire." Get it? I'm not sure I do. "She needs an eyepatch" I thought, for some arbitrary reason. Because chicks with eyepatches are hot, of course. Well, get a load if you must:

Winter 2005 (During what will be referred to as my "Robert Crumb" Phase)

Damn, where didn't I go wrong here? Her thighs are HUGE. Her beefy arms, her giant hands and feet, her goofy lopsided boobs... I may as well have made her a man. This drawing is a turd.

Fall 2006 (right before I moved to Calgary)

I started drawing her pretty often, and she stayed pretty beefy like the last pic until I wised up and made her slim and...well, less hideous. The proportions are still pretty freaking wacky... "herky" sums it up, I think. I dunno why I gave her a huge gunt, either. I was really concerned about not making her too short, so I instead made her tall and lanky. Uhh, believe it or not, the "style" is influenced by John Kricfalusi's stuff. I claimed it was, anyway. 

Summer 2007

By this point, I was getting pretty tired of drawing her. Every new drawing of her I did looked way different than the last. I kept drawing her anyway, I don't know why, I have trouble with subject matter at times. I changed her name to "Tracy Fire" shortly after I did the last picture, after one of my teachers from high school. Still lame. I think this one has a few good things about it, I guess the pencil crayon looks okay. Mostly, it's just stiff and awkward. Kinda unremarkable, I would say.

Early 2008

I drew this almost a year ago, but coloured it recently. It was good practice with the tablet. I walked away from drawing her for a while before I drew this one. This is the last drawing I've ever done of her that I still like... actually the ONLY one. I've done a few more since but they suck ass. So she won't go much further than this. I like how she looks when she's "cute" more than any other of the styles I did. Especially when you compare this last drawing to the first one. 'What an eye sore!"

I was just interested in how far she came since I started drawing her. I think I'm done for a while. 

...and that's all I have to say about that.

I'm Hungry

So this is gonna be my new art blog. Pretty much an excuse to show off, which I always enjoy but sometimes feel guilty for. But whatever. I am hoping that this thing will give me some motivation to create some new stuff... or at least, that is the excuse I'm going to use. So, here's some stuff worth mentioning I guess:

Jonny Hammerfist. Yup, here he is.

This here is Ruby Heart from Marvel Vs. Capcom 2. I think this one turned out okay, it was one of the first pieces I used my tablet on, so I had to learn lot while working on it. Pirate chicks are rad.

This guy is my new kinda character. He just kinda happened one day. I recently got a new brush pen, and I was anxious to try it out. So I did.

I like him because he kinda reminds me of like, weird-o's or rat fink or other 60's kinda stuff. Plus, he's fun to draw.

So there you have it. The first post ever. I will post more in the future, but for now though..... courage.
