Happy Accidents



I just got an IM from a pal about a correction on one of my previous posts (which has now been corrected). He came across my post due to a Google Alert that he'd set up. I had no idea that something like that existed, so I set up a few alerts of my own. Lo and behold, an alert came back that I'd been blogged about on Cold Hard Flash. Pretty cool. I usually go through life thinking that I'm pretty much invisible. Apparently I'm only 50% transparent.

Hollywood Zombies - From TOPPS

Zombie animation by my pal Kenny K! Check out more of his stuff at KennyK.com.

Blob Art



Inspired by the psychedelic art and posters of the 60s, I've started drawing "blobs." Just another way for me to distract myself from other projects I've got cooking.

Roller Boogie Til You Die!



It's been a busy couple of weeks...NYC, busy at work, cranking through sketchbooks, catching up with a lot of my NYC pals, sold some of my comic zines to Jim Hanley's Universe and St. Marks Comics (I ran out before I could sell any to Forbidden Planet), fun stuff.

Now it's time to get some more work done.

Locked Into Lucid Dreams

Sunday night I had dreams that I accidentally bought a used DVD from Netflix online. When I tried to fix my mistake, it bumped up my order to 2 copies of this DVD that I didn't even want. At some point, I realized that I was dreaming and hadn't really bought any used DVDs from Netflix and had nothing to worry about, but the dreams of me trying to resolve it lasted all night, even when I was trying to pull myself out and dream about something else.

Last night I was tortured all night trying to remember the title "Lord of the Flies." I could see scenes from the black and white movie, a book cover with a pig head on a stick. And knew that the title was another name for Satan, Lucifer, the Devil, etc. It wasn't until early morning that I remembered the title.

I'm not sure what's going on with me but I should be having better dreams than these.

Space Kid



I can't keep up with myself. Another forgotten piece that I just found. I think I was working on this last week. Or the week before.

Rock On!

Shelly Spahnie




One of my coworkers, Shelly Spahnie passed away last Saturday. Since she worked in Finance and I'm in Creative, we didn't have a whole lot of interaction. When I saw her, she was always cheerful and friendly. One evening when a few of us were out for happy hour, Shelly bought me all my drinks on the condition that I draw a koala for her. I happily did so. What a great lady. She'll be greatly missed by many.

Suns

Gisele Kerozene

Saw this years ago at an animation festival. Great to see it again.

Stop, Look and Listen (1967)

One of the better things I've seen on YouTube recently. Gotta love the pixelation. Now I feel like I've gotta track down other shorts like it, like Gisele Kerozene.

Wolverton Inspired Drawing



The name Basil Wolverton comes up a fair amount when people see my work. While his work has definitely inspired mine, I don't think mine looks like his. At one point I decided I'd do a "Wolverton" drawing. I got this far and then promptly forgot about it. Just found it lurking in a dark corner of my hard drive...looking for something else. I could easily spend the rest of my life just finishing half done stuff sitting on my computer.
