zombies in feudal japan

One of my friends who works in a big BIG film/game company does this things with his co workers where they pick worda out of different boxes and match them.
the two words that came up last time were feudal Japan and Zombies.

I thought I'd give it a try .
I'm not( as you may have guessed by now) a big zombie guy, but, heck, it's nice to play around with different ideas here and there!

This is actually for a little side project That I'm trying to work on now!

sniff.. i'm sick today, and staying home!
It would be so cool to stay home WITHOUT being sick, but, hey, take off the TWO hour commute , and what's a little headache, hey?

dog fight over provence

I just finished reading this book"A year in Provence, by Peter Mayle.
A very funny book, about this english couple who decides to buy a house in the south region of france called Provence, and live there.
The book has twelve chapters, one for each month, and is very very funny, and OH , so acurate! has inspired the last "old town" drawing, and this one, which is a combination of the flying pigs, and some houses from provence( style wise at least!).

Also, believe it or not...these birds ARE typical from the south of France!
That's probably where they come from!

and, while I'm at's another image of the pigs in a more "charming" environment.
I like putting the two together, since they were pretty much done in the same sitting..., and both are not for work!

Mister cow...just in case you wonder.. I do work as well!
but I can't show any of it here!( and that wouldn't be the point anyhow!)

old town

I little experiment.
Took a paper skecth and applied different digital techniques to it.
It's a little rough, but it's really exciting to see how i can now start blending different medias and get faster and very interesting results.

the bunny Pirate

One of my friends, Justin, came up with this idea.
I just drew one for him, but there should be a whole crew of them..they're below, out of frame( of course!)

Lil jim and the moon thief

I wrote a stroy for a short film a while ago about a kid, a tumbling cloud, and a thief that wants to steal the moon.
I did it a few years ago, but put it to the side because of other projects.
I brought it out recently and started doodling around with it.
Here are a few of these sketches.

random drawing

Ok.. honestly.. this is what happens to a skecth when I screw it up.
I was working on a whole different concept, and, when it was done, I showed it to kat, who( bless her heart) canno't lie about my work to save her life.
in short, it didn't pass her test.

So..I took that sketch and butchered it a bit before deciding to trhow it away.
and since I don't have a sketch of the day now... this "eror" will have to do!

Kat, I love you.
Thank you!

This started as a phone doodle,
I just liked the shape of the animal with that little guy on it after the phone call.

I'm always surprised at the type of images and stories we all have in our heads.

Other than that.
Kat and I had indian food again last night.
For anybody that knows me, i'm generally know as a health freak, but , dude, put me in front of some saag dahl, some chicken tandoori, and some bengan bartha, and I become a ..a...a...
a something not very nice to watch!

For all of you who live in the city(san francsico) and haven't tried the llittle polk street restaurant"star of india", I higly recommand it!

The chase

Back to our little morning series.....
Chase over the pacific islands....

I know..they have really fast planes to go from the arctic to the pacific island in just a few drawings....but that's what
s so cool about sequential art: You control time!

Busy day today, for various reasons.
Good and just allright.

(allthough, I'll probably want to move the story along at some point!)

night plan

a sketch to continue the tradition of the"SKETCH" of the day( too often do we forget what the real point is here!...that is .. to have fun drawing and telling stories!)

opening the box

ok.. not my best, but , it moves the story along.

I think I'm feeling a little blah today..
hmm... could be the counter effects of all that's been going on lately, with work, the con, and the wedding.
