That would be cool if you lived with a monster. You would NEVER GET HICCUPS.

Found this old drawing on my comp, thought it deserved some attention. I still wanna upload new stuff, I'm just not in the mood. Call it a slump, if you must.

bonus Metal Slug doodle. I like the Mars People. Cute little fellas.

I know these drawings suck (McDuck's got some Liefield-esque anatomy goin on). Hold tight, I'll come up with something decent.

"Clatto Verata N... Necktie... Nickel... It's an N word, it's definitely an N word!"

One of the reasons for my latest slump in posting stuff is the small influx of DS games that have come into my possession over the past two weeks. Having pre-ordered them in full (and remaining very wary of Gamestop's potential to screw me over), I was able to pick up Dragon Quest 4 and Disgaea DS. There's something really nice about not being stuck in a Gamestop down here. Toms River has produced some real mouth-breathing, knuckle-dragging citizens...and they all play the vidja gaems. I won't bother to go further with this and start ranting (besides, I already did on a forum I go to:, I started the thread, and now I urge you all to fuel this hateful fire).

Here are some random sketches. Two Dragon Quest 4 characters and some miscellaneous faces. Enjoy, or something.

“Your birth is a mistake you'll spend your whole life trying to correct.”

Until I come up with some new sketches, I've dug up some old pieces from my deviant art page. I used to post all my stuff on there, but thanks to the needless drama that plagues the site, I was banned (long story short: if your critique has anything negative, people tend to get all offended and consider it "flaming"). Anyways, feel free to grimace at my old stuff. I'd like to think that I've become better since these pieces, but it could just be an entirely new type of "suck".

I have no idea why I'm so averse to color. I'll use every shade of gray, but usually avoid color. Blegh.
See? Same thing with this piece. I kinda wanna do this one over, with actual colors. Make it look decent. Oh yeah, I screwed up the date, it should be '07, not '06.

Cause i'm spendin' all my time to build the robots.

Nothin special in this post, just some etc. from my sketch pad. Squirrel Girl and the ska burger guy-thing were suggestions from a friend. Man that burger came out like ass... not happy with squirrel girl either. Mebbe i should draw her and Deadpool all teamed up-like. As an aside, Dragon Quest for is the bee's knees. THE BEE'S KNEES.

Hitler bad, blog good.

I don't like how the pyro came out, his hand (the one I bothered to draw, at least) looks off, and I wanted him to look a lil bulkier. The zombie was thrown in there just to make use of the paper, and cause I like doodling them. He's a happy feller.

We sell tiny tigers! They came out of my friend Tim!

I'm gonna try to update on a more regular basis, I swear. Here's s'more drawings.

I love Brule's Rules, and subsequently hate how this drawing came out. That arm...gah!

I've discovered that my creativity peaked last night, when I made SPAGHETTI SANDWICHES. Don't knock em til you've tried em, seriously. Everything I do will now be held in comparison to these amazing eatables, and will certainly shrivel and wilt in the glaring light of awesome that they produce.

Welcome to Incredible Crisis

I'm still around, just too lazy to sketch daily. Work has a big part in making me that way. Here's some stuff I've done since the last post.

Venture Bros, huzzah!

Bangaio Spirits is oddly entrancing

Took me a while, but I've made a few new sketches. Nothing spectacular, just enough to keep my pencil moving and to grant me the illusion that I might be improving (if only slightly). No explanation for the first one. Second pic is some Scott Pilgrim art (which is a great read, by the way).

Saved by the Bouyancy of Citrus

One sketch today, just in pencil. Did this while on the phone, with my original intent being something a bit more visceral and gory. If you look at the guy's face, you can see how I've been influenced by the art of Penny Arcade (ok screw it, this looks like I'm straight up biting the style, I'm a fuggin hack).

Tha difference betweens the womens and the goils is the degradation

Three sketches for today (got a new sketchpad and felt like diving into some serious art-type schtick). The first is a pic of Dethklok done in pencil. I suck at drawing guitars, which is why they're obscured.

I've decided to start asking friends to give me whatever combination of an adjective and a noun, then trying to draw it out. These are done much quicker, and have the potential to be odd. I'm hoping this'll keep me on my toes creatively. The first was a friend of mine who blurted out "tiny Sagat", and lo, a piece of fan art that shouldn't be has been birthed.

Next up is an entry from the girlfriend. "Slimy Tonsils". I only now realize I spelled it wrong, and I'll write it up as some kind of artistic reinterpretation of the word. As you can see, I took the easy way out, and drew from Dragon Quest as source material. I tried doing another version of a guy with stuff oozing from his mouth, but I think that's a little too far off the mark.

So can you hear me? Can you get hip to what I'm sayin'?

One post today, quickly thrown together before work. Done as a gift for the girlfriend. Micron pens, sizes 005 to 08, and prismacolors. Quote's taken from American Psycho, cause she digs the movie. As an aside, I want the shirt I drew for myself.

PS. Thanks to my shitty skill in rendering the human figure, one of her legs looks kinda sorta broken. I can either admit that the drawing sucks, or bust her kneecap to ensure that the drawing more accurately represents her. Leave comments as to which would work better.

Completely Uncalled For

Two posts tonight, because I like to spoil you guys. The first is an inked piece of Godzilla and Mothra, nothing spectacular. Micron pens, sizes 005 to 08. The second was a sketch I did for no reason other than to do something different. She's supposed to have arms, but I stopped working on it halfway. Still like it for some reason. A friend of mine says it reminds him of the Spumco style.

I can only fit in convertable cars, and my mom has a three-foot Cesarian scar thanks to my disproportionate head.

Nothing cool for today. Inked this on a whim the other day, and decided to use it for my facebook profile. S'not like my usual style, but was kinda fun to do nonetheless. Micron pens, sizes 005 to 08.

"I have passed an amount of urine into at least one of our many elegant fragrances."

I'm putting up two sketches today. Originally, I planned on sticking to one image a day, but figured that since these were simple (and pretty rough) that two would make the post worthwhile. I have no idea why I drew the little...cadaver? I'm still not sure what I had in mind when I drew it (it was just after I'd turned in my teaching portfolio, a wonderful end-of-semester project that robbed me of all but a scant few hours of sleep); apparently I was channeling Jon Morris during the second drawing (at least I think).

P.S. The title to this post is a book reference, guess right and you get a cookie.

In which matters of the ectoplasmic sort are discussed

Micron pens (sizes 005 to 08). I don't like how the cross-hatching came out. I'd write more about it, but it's fan art for the Super Mario Bros franchise. I can't go into some lengthy description/attempt to validate my choice of subject matter without sounding like a jackass.

See that first post? Yeah, ignore that.

Having accumulated a good amount of scanned sketches, I've decided to upload them to my own blog. Previously, my work was posted on my friend Steph's blog; nothing against sharing a blog, but I'd like to have my own (besides, somehow my work and hers would get confused). Anyways, I'm going to try and limit my posts to one sketch each. Might post more if I get around to it, or feel that the one I've uploaded doesn't justify having the entire post to itself (some of my stuff is crap, I'm the first to admit it).

With that out of the way, here's a Gundam enjoying a sandwich.
