FLICK PICK: Curse of the Golden Flower

This has always been one of my favorite movies of all time. This movie has all the ingredients of a classic: 1. Rich, beautiful set design and costumes, 2. Great and engaging story and music, 3. Excellent performances, 4. Nigh perfection in camera work. I'm usually iffy about period pieces but this film is too immaculate to ignore. The thing is that it's one of those movies that if you choose to watch it, you have to WATCH IT. It's not one of those films you can walk in and out of and still be in the loop... ok? I was so happy when I found it on DVD for like $5 in a bargain bin a few years back. Ugh, I can't tell you how awesome this film is... you just gotta experience it for yourself, dude. 

Jamming to: Adele's 21

Awesome. Awesome. Awesome. Talk about a true lyricist. Don't mean to get all mushy, but it's like she sings my very thoughts... how's that for some ol' Shakespearian lingo? Anywho, definitely a great album to listen to during those long nights inking pages. Check her out, yo!

Some ol' Self Portraits *hurr de durr*

So here are some self portraits that I did a while back (when I had muh hairz). As you can see, I'm my favorite subject. *total narcissist* I'll leave a description of each, bloo blah...

This was a quick drawing I did (about 12 mins on the Photoshopz). I was pulling from a Venture Bros-esque kind of style. I think I did ok...

One of my favorite artist has to be Jamie Hewlett. Tried to merge his style with a little of my own. The glasses need work though. This was also a quickie but eh...

This was my own idea. I wanted to make a periodic element of myself (if that makes any sense). These aren't just random numbers either, so yeah, Da Vinci Code that shit and find out what it means... or not... you know what, never mind.

Portfolio Review with Marvel

Yeah, so May 7th, I'll pour my life's work in front of a Marvel editor. Kinda iffy on this because I'm technically not too proud of a few things in my work. Gotta print a lot of shit before then too to update it. Got some mini's done though, so I'll stick those in there. Also wanted to do at least one whole Too Coole comic before then. I already have a script, just need to get the time to do it (two jobs, twin newborns, school, apartment hunting, graduation... ) Yuk, responsibilities sucks booty butt balls.

Another Vis 1 Assignment

This was the first draft for this assignment. My professor ripped it to shreds but he was right. So I'll fix it and post the new thumbs later this week or so. So yeah...

Visual Storytelling- Assignment 1

We had to thumbnail pages for an original script that was given in class. My professor says I have to really focus on design in terms of my page layouts. I agree.

Quick Sketch

This is a quick self portrait I did. Trying to get in the habit of doing one every day. 8 mins.

Yoda Colors

The lines belong to my professor, Nolan Woodard. This was a coloring assignment and this was what I came up with. So yeah...
