So yeah. Expect to see this guy pop up a few more times.
Anyhoo, completely unknown to me at the time I started doing this, my friend and colleague Pat Kain had already been doing this for almost two weeks! Check out his sketch-a-day blog at pbkain.com. I’m sad to admit that I had no idea he was doing a daily drawing blog, but now that I do, I feel like I have a brother-in-arms in this task, whether he wants it or not.
Black Panther is the very first drawing posted on this blog (back when it was at blogspot). I figured it fitting to have a new B.P. sketch early on in this experiment. Added in Wildcat for kicks.
So, over the summer I got super busy and had a nervous breakdown. I promised that I’d start updating the blog with new art in 2011 on a more regular basis. I’m announcing for everyone now that I have ensured my next nervous breakdown:
I will be posting a new sketch/drawing every day of this year.
Starting on February 1st, 2011, I will post a sketch or drawing for (what I intend) the next 365 days.
I have a list of requests I still need to get through, plus all the stuff I’ve been working on in secret for the past six months or so, and I’m also still taking new requests to cut down on the thought I need to put into this project.
I have set up some ground rules for myself:
1) I will spend a minimum of 10 minutes on any sketch or drawing posted.
2) There will at least one color piece a week
3) Do it!
So, if you have any requests, or need to remind me of unfulfilled requests, please post ’em here!
This is a follow-up to my last post, the second cover I did for the Dr. Creep/New Shock Theater DVD covers project. The movie is called “The Devil’s Wedding Night”. I wanted to go in a completely different direction and style with this cover, but I still had to stick with the parameters of putting Dr. Creep on it somehow. Not too happy with the placement of the text, it looks more like the movie is called “Satan is Coming”. Oh well, we’ll get ’em next time, Champ.
This is a recreation of a movie poster. The original title of the film is called Los Monstruos del Terror, renamed in the U.S.A. as Assignment Terror (sometimes Dracula vs. Frankenstein) and is written by and features Spanish horror star Paul Naschy.
My friend Matt Brassfield is putting together a sort of tribute/charity drive for local Dayton, Ohio television icon Dr. Creep. I think every Dayton artist is contributing a piece of art for each episode of Dr. Creep’s New Shock Theater, a revised version of his old late-night horror show. This is the first of two I’m doing for Matt and Dr. Creep (in case you’re wondering he’s the leering gentleman in the beard and hat at the bottom of the drawing).
I traditionally post something here on my birthday each year. The first year was an emotionally heartfelt couple of paragraphs and some art. Last year was a fun breakdown of my cartooning process.
This year has no art whatsoever. If you haven’t heard yet, Adam Hughes ruined my life and I’ve stopped drawing for my own fulfillment. For the time being, anyway. Also this year my depression has been spiraling deeper and deeper out of control. I am getting worse, mentally, physically, psychologically, socially and as a human being in general. This is not a cry for help. This is not a pity party. There is no party at all.
I just got back from a sneak preview of the movie Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. Movies like this always make me feel terrible when I get home, which probably explains the previous paragraph. By no means was the movie terrible. The movie is in fact one of the most amazing times I’ve ever had watching a film. I’ll properly review it in a second. But the reason I feel terrible afterwards is because movies like this – movies about dipshit, selfish misfits who find love and strengthen true friendships – make me realize what I no longer have in my life and make me realize that there is no way I’ll ever get back to that place again. Or get better again. I’m too far away now.
I don’t like my reflection.
That said, Scott Pilgrim was a fantastic movie and I recommend this to anyone. Michael Cera is truly at his least Michael Cera-y, yet still retaining all the Michael Cera-ness that made people love him on Arrested Development. Edgar Wright proves that he can do a film without Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, and still be amazing. Bear in mind, I have not read a single panel of the Scott Pilgrim graphic novels and dislike most everything hipsterish and indie rock. Scott Pilgrim the movie should not appeal to me in any way whatsoever outside of my love of Edgar Wright, and not only was I sold, I pretty much ignored the retarded redneck fuckcunts who sat behind me and talked the entire time.
It was that great.
