hehe, look how happy he is!

the other day at the library cheri gave me something to throw away. it was a advertisement for this new photostamp thing. instead of tossing it i kept it. i wanted to try it out!

i made this image for it, but i chickened out of buying the service at the last minute because i wasn't so sure how the image quality was going to be.

time to do some research on the thing...

check out that house structure thing in the middle left. i'd give up that mr. T bobblehead thing on this computer desk to live there!

painted in the historic section of viterbo, italy. i thought i'd have to dread landscape class out with acrylics, but caroline said that ink worked too, and i was like 'ha HAAAAA!'

so i found this coat in my basement that i had never seen before. it was just hanging there!

doesn't it remind you of vash the stampede's coat? i've slammed some red in there to help remind you. it's black in actuality.

and so [fact that trigun was the only anime i've ever been enthusiastic about]+[love of ink]+[coat fetish]=picture.

also: back in business with the scanner! woo!

i was sketching sketching sketching and fishing for comps for the final illustration project (which i'm psyched about) and thought about this. then i thought "naaah..."

in the pencil stages srom looked like a raccoon. real raccoons of the world would probably not be happy about this, so i drew a pissed-off raccoon too.

i like this pic tho because you ge a good view of his shirtsleeves. plus the aloof-coolness expression is generally a universal favorite.

Demanding constant attention will only lead to attention, and once they have your attention, they'll use it to ask for attention, and once they have your attention, they'll use it to ask for attention.

"you want some more coffee, babe?"

"Sure i'll have som... WHAT TH-?"

"quiet, srom, it's just the audience on the other side of the picture plane. ignore them. they'll go away after awhile."



this drawing shows a lot. it was done in ballpoint pen, showing me killing time before crazy note-taking in my art of africa class. it was done on notebook paper, wide-ruled, showing that i was using the notebook that my cat pissed on, which shows that i didn't have my usual notebook with me because i'm moving. So some things are in one place and some are in another entirely different place. It also shows that my cat is pissing on things, and so i have to scrounge up some money to get him clipped.

i've been wanting to draw my own characters more, so there you go with that as well! i'm gonna turn it into something better someday. and when that day comes - oh and what a day that will be! - it will look like they're inside a house and not in a bar, which will make Summonnee look less sleazy. hooray for not being sleazy!

a little sketchy of burger, because Sockbaby's my favorite tenNapelly thing since gear. i love how burger's a guy with a big robot arm, but he doesn't do anything but sit in the car when he and ronnie get attacked by greys.

a sketch for an illustration assignment, because i can put squirrels blowing chunks in my finished pieces. drunk squirrels are harder to draw than one would think. in earlier studies, my squirrels just looked dead. this was a later one.

this one's a little disturbing, i think. i don't know why. i'll get what i'm really trying to do up sometime later when my scanner isn't skipping over chunks of it! as for now, i'm tired. good night.

i'm trying to piece together this 18x24 thing, but my scanner's being a bumhole! however, the pieces that scanned make nice compositions in themselves, i think so yes. man, my first shot with colour since last fall and my scanner decides to revolt against me! what did i do to deserve this?

this is to be a rough sketch forever since i don't feel like looking at pictures of politicians long enough to get a good ref.

this is basically saying that i think that w. bush likes to poke his head into issues that shouldn't concern him so much. but then again, that's just me.

have you ever heard somebody laughing really hard in another room and you can't tell if they're laughing or crying? this is what i'm dealing with in this piece.

the panels start out in a triangular shape because triangles suggested an ambiguity to me. neither happy nor sad nor mad. in the same panel you can only guess if srom's sad or what. then the panel shapes start to be similarly shaped to light rays, and you see that srom is indeed happy. this is also on purpose. not to mention it all makes a nice rectangle!

yes. this is an illustration class assignment. i wasn't sure if i should put writing in it or not, and so... i just went with it and put it in. half the class loved it and the other half hated it. same on the comic format, but nuts to them about that.

the character exchange thing is such a cool idea!
