s'been a while...

I'm sorry... more updates once I realize what I've neglected to post here. In the meantime. DookJoOoky needs some love. Some of YOUR love. Help two young brothers from Virginia "get on" so to speak. We're swell chaps, I promise.

Also, the better half of DKJKY just overhauled his blog. My love/hatred for this cat is everlasting. I'm glad we're in the same camp. Otherwise id have to MERK 'em AHAHAHAhahha. No. Seriously. *meanmug* Happy holidays, folks.

8arm workday

The Sketch

Love how this looks. Might hide my inkwells from myself for a while and just pencil everything. Maybe even try to freak style that looks like the way I ink just by holding the pencil differently or finally using this jar of graphite power i hardly use.

The Inks.

...Meh. its more obviously to me now after its done it was rushed. Took my time on the face, but the rest, I was already late to work so I crapped it out after that.

The Tones.

So so. I'm teaching myself the art of the bitmap halftone. I had to learn how to do it for a t-shirt design that needed a gradient in it without using too many different colors. Just needed something to fill up the back. Im wishing now I had left the glasses on him from the initial skech.

this little piggy....

Went "CRAPDOOKPOOPFARTGRUNT" all the way home.
Sunday nights at work are brutally boring...

this is what it birthed.

Wasnt the initial design i had in mind(wanted some pursed lips and drippage HA) but it came out ok for what it was. read the article here. Next few editorials im going to do straight to wacom tablet to test myself. Im think im getting nice as hell with it(finally), if i do say so myself.

Undercover Illustration finally ran this past tuesday...
It printed a WHOLE lot better than I expected.. all my values came in to a tee I think.

as I groove out to common - the light...

Love how this came out...

Folks dug it, but since they've been framing all the newspaper stuff lately, hahaha, they mentioned it sucks because now theres an image of Bush in their living room.

Some people I work with were trying to find out if I did it straight to the computer or not. It DOES look like some sloppy straight to wacom tablet... but its really just super rushed + breaking in a new brush pen. Inks...

Also, here are some photo manip stuff I did for an article running Tuesday about effed up flavors of ice cream. Gotta love the Japanese. Wish I had known, totally would've ate some bacon ice cream just to say I did it.

FUCK thats nasty ahahahha. Smooches.

bottles are fun

Maybe ill try a transparent one next time... would've on this one but I had time constraints and was too tired to sit there and draw it.. AND ink it. All this was pretty much straight to ink.
Read the article (and see the horrible colors) here. Im tired... two mor hours at work.. then I have to turn in some rough drafts/thumbnails for the t-shirt folks.

The life of a starving artist... is one with little sleep and lots of delusions of grandeur/trash talking. Amen. ZZZZzzzz... oh WAIT!

Here's some Japanese hiphop to keep people awake. Ahahahha. I love this shit. Ok.. how about some regular "real" hip hop too.

Ahaha, nobody will see these for weeks.

Monday, June 04, 2007

oh riiight...

Forgot to post this over here...

Story was about professional shoplifting groups and the new methods/tech to try and stop them. They forgot to quote me for the illustration.. dunno how I feel about that ahahahha. Article here, and here's the SKETCH.

she loves bunbun

Graduation gift for the kid sister of a close friend of mine. Never actually MADE it to the graduation party because; even though Ive driven to the house countless times, had great distress finding that shit last night hahahha, 1hr 30min drive turned into almost 3 hours of getting lost driving around in circles getting wrong directions from random people who don't speak my language, home grown or otherwise :D

Maybe Ill mail her the shit or something. Bah. Missed all that delicious Filipino food and urrything. Jesus. ahahahha.

20mins. Brush Pen.

Wednesday, May 09, 2007


Latest newspaper thing thing. First friday of the month block parties.

Sloppiest inking job ever... im ditching the brush pen for a second to get my swagger back. Was good while it lasted, I must admit. Colors made it stomachible to look at though. Props out to Aysha Sheim for the texures ♥

Shit made me hella lazy though. Much like photoshop and my marker/gouache game that used to be kinda sweet. Shameful.

i cheat my meat

Half of the editorials ive done thus far have been composites of separate images done on their own paper, usually. Unless I'm hard up for time I usually do them on separate paper. Oddly enough, the ones that are my favorites/look the best are the ones that were done all one on sheet of paper. Go figure. Here are the pieces...

I'm sure doing it this way is what causes me to almost miss deadline sometimes. But doing it like a puzzle helps keep my mind clear and helps me focus more, even if it does take a few hours more with the scanning and such. I'd never do this for my own person stuff. I just like to have better control over my shit when dealing with this particular employer... incase they want to make change @ last minuet it can be done in seconds. Read the article here.

More sketchy NON-COMPOSITE type things in a few days. Peace.

President Thomas Jefferson

Ahahha.. yeah, go ahead and laugh. It's cool. I expect it. CRAZY fun to compose. Running tomorrow. I forget which section. Makes me want to do a rack of other presidents and such. Good times ♥ Peep the sumbliminals yo.

coffee wars

Instead of uploading the finished version i figured id keep it fun and upload the pieces of it and how it printed on the actual page. I should upload more doodles and junk. S'been a while, yo. Here are some of the doodles alone and stuff... Way too much fun.

some stuff and some other stuff

Another commission for the paper. Story was about how zoning is all effed up in the burg. Being that technically I live in spotsy, 2 miles out of city limits, but our mailing address is fredericksburg. ...this goes the same for stafford residents and some other people. I dunno. I didnt like how the colors turned out for the version i turned in so ill be fixing those up to post and shit. It has this dope insane maze i made combining 3 mazes i found together then adding walls and deleting walls all with the pencil tool.

monseur plastique

Colored version. Came out pretty good I think. Not quite Hanuka, but DEFINITLY in the vein of thier styles. I'll have to hold on to this one and do a lot more so I can get a sustem down on how to do this fast so I can crank out more fully finished peices. Rock.

You can read the article here.

plastic surgery n'shit

Sketch for an illustration running in this upcoming Tuesday's paper. Stupid excited to finish this shit and lay some Hanuka Bros styled coloring over it I've been wanting to do for SO long.. but waited until I had the right lines to lay over it.
Word. Felt weird drawing semi-realistically again. Hope I can keep the torch lit to bang out some comic pages this week.
Derick changed his blog. Peep that shit yo --->

Cheerio ♥

people dont even read this

But ill update with some recent crap anywho.

First one was for a "going away" gift for a CRAZY-talented(and cute) friend/co worker of mine. Her last day at the paper was yesterday. Wish I had a color copy of the photos they made a joke newspaper page for her with. Ahahha... TOO sexy/hilarious. Good luck to her on her travels. The second one was for the husband of another talented photographer I work with. A caricature of his friend who recently passed, to go on a t-shirt for a race they're holding to raise money for research in the cancer he had. HEAVY. I usually scoff @ doing stuff that like.. MEANS something to people. Crazy pressure :D I havent done a "classical" caricature in well over 4 years. People seem to dig it I guess.

im sleepy... wish i could sleep. but i have work in an hour. awesome.

more corporate whoredome

Another spot illustration I did for work that ran in Thursday's paper. It didn't run as large as the previous one, but more people are likely to see it; it was printed during a weekday and not weekend. I'm wishing I had pivoted the screen so it was at an angle... You can find the article here. Really, read it. The young woman who wrote it... ♥ cutie. Much like all the young women here. Whomever's doing the hiring around this place... I'm not mad at you homey :D

This time around there was more of an idea which had to be shown, though I dig the last better. They kinda let me do whatever. I draw a page or three of thumbnails of how i'd do it. I run it by one or two people and they point to the one I should finalize. All the color stuff(I hate coloring anything, which is obvious in the quick polygon lasso stuff) characters and inking style is primarily my choice. I'd honestly like a shorter leash.

Mine and Derick's joined website, is real close to completeion. Been eating up the majority of my freetime as of late. Keep my phone off, havent been online.. alladat. Really excited to see this project lift off and explode.

you corporate whore, you

Pin up/spot illus I did for work in the beginning of the week. It ran in today's paper so I'm allowed to post it now. Basically the idea is its cold as FCUK out... but there being wine tasting to warm up :D Wasn't my vision, but my execution.

I think it came out GREAT for what it is. I hope they give me more assignments often/soon.

Also, you can find a small version of it(but why would you click that when the big one is here? lol) and the story it went along with over at fredericksburg.com. Scroll down and you should be able to find it. Ill scan or photograph how it looked in the paper.

Also added some new links. My future love slave, Mickey (michaela colette) and a new friend Paco Desiato(has a skydoll type style, really slick sherbert coloring style) are now among the ranks.

Props to my baby brother Kevin for putting me onto this boredom killer. I haven't used my wacom tablet in FOREVER. I think I'll keep the dust off of it this time around ;)

Back to the grind...
