L.A. palms

Here's a quick monochrome piece.

"Quick" for me is a couple of days.

Percy in the Trench

This is one of the characters from a comic that I'm doing with a bunch of other animators. I'm trying to get the style down, and I think I've finally got something that I like. So imagine this-- but just drawn better!

Tshirt Design Two!

This is more fun to me. And it will be clearer as a small image.

Tshirt Design One

An earlier version of a design I've been playing with. I thought it was too staid, and wouldn't reduce well to the size I'm picturing it on a Tshirt, which would be about 3X5 inches.

Just Calm Down.

So I used to do a comic called "Bob Violent" in college, and this is essentially him. I had done this one page comic of him getting ready for bed, with no dialog or captions. I had it lying around and then some time later I wrote the poem. How I ever thought they would go together, I don't know. But in my head, they do. It's called Just Calm Down. It's a scan from paper artwork, and I'm not totally happy with some of the staging and the quality of the drawing in general, so I'll probably redo this in Photoshop.

Two short poems that go together.

Prayer of the Conquerors

On black, heaving horses
We trample their corn and their dusty paths
We storm their huts and smash their baskets
And put to the sword their bloody fruit

Ours are their labors
The seeds in their bellies
The fates that befall them
And their every morning sun.

Prayer of the Vanquished

We bare our palms and our backs to you
And long to forget our names
Our homes are your homes
And we sleep under your stars.

We ache from carrying our chains
With resignation we suckle your young
And watch your mighty lungs fill with air
Because we must not look into your eyes.

Bald Guy: Work in Progress

So I'm trying to learn how to paint in Photoshop. This is difficult because I really don't know how to paint using traditional media! So I'm learning about value, hue, saturation, light and shadow as I go. This is something that I'm working on, from a photo of some random guy that I found on the intertubes.

My New Blog

Well, here I go! my first post. Just testing.
