Sardine in Outer Space

I've been reading the DUNGEON books by Sfar and Trondheim for awhile now. Completely in love with those books. And I've heard about this, but thought it was a bit too kiddy. But I just saw this at a bookstore and so I thought what the heck. It's not world shatteringly good, but dang if it isn't fun. I think Sfar found that place when you're just discovering how to draw and have so many ideas that it doesn't matter if you know how to draw it, just put what you can down on the paper and move off into the next. Pure raw energy. Not really pretty, but full of electricity. I also really like the format he (and Guibert) used on this. Ten page episodes that all end with the cat saying, "The End." Quite successful. Seems like a good model for collecting a lot of stories within a larger story. I'm beginning to scheme... using this kind of framework for THE IGUANANAUTS...

Vampire Squid

So I've been watching me some Planet Earth. I watched the Ocean Deep episode and now I'm obsessed with the Vampire Squid or as David Attenborough says: The Vampyroteuthis.

24 hour comic

I know 24 hour comic day isn't till October 18th, but I couldn't wait. It was a lot harder than I thought- I guess since I started at midnite- right around the 7th or 8th hour I started to black out. Then, I had a can of Red Bull and was ok for a few more hours. A continuous in-take of sugar, loud music, and caffeine, and I made it to the finish line. Nelson looks like me in the 9th grade. Yeah. I had a mullet. Schweet.
The madness can be read here!

Just watched this. Maybe the weirdest movie I've ever seen since Eraserhead. Beautiful.

This Is IT

This is a tshirt design that I drew for my good friend Mark Ryan.
Here is his supra cool site
He came up with the look, art directed it, and then I drew it.
Of course I asked for my usual fee of eleventy kadillion dollars in gold bullion. Now I'm in the hospital...

Nelson The Nerdarian

This is page 1 of a blatant spoof of Conan. I guess this would be called a leisure comic- just something I'm gonna do in between bigger projects...
