Flex Mentallo is my hero. He fights for my freedom.

These are more sketches from my various jobs. The Mona Lisa pics were from photocopied coloring book pages.

Obviously this one wasn't done while I was working at school...

Surf Club Sketches

So I work security a few days a week at a club on the Jersey Shore. Most of the time I'm unable to do anything past ensuring that people don't act like prize assholes, but last night was really slow. Thanks to the downtime, I was able to bang out some quick pen sketches whilst keeping an eye on the "Teen Night" crowd.

"I want to eat a swan. Is that wrong of me? I can't find anyone who'll sell me a swanburger." - Spider Jerusalem

I'd like to preface this with an apology for the low quality pictures of my drawings. My old scanner's been busted for months, and I had to resort to taking pictures with my digital camera. I've since obtained a new scanner, and will be using it for any new drawings I come up with.

I've recently come into possession of the first two volumes of Moore's run of Swamp-Thing. While I think Man-Thing has a more striking appearance (at least when handled by a competent artist), Swamp-Thing has some pretty great stories. Done at work with ballpoint pen on an index card.

Another ballpoint drawing done at the learning center. I've been trying to get back into playing Street Fighter 4 online, but can't seem to find anyone who uses a fighter that ISN'T Ryu or Akuma. The Akuma players seem to be more prevalent, not to mention cheap. After reading some of the messages that were typed out to me on PSN, I've come to the conclusion that these people are a genetic dead end. Please don't let them breed. Allow them to live freely in their basements, lording over fake fighting tournaments, and cupping their own buttocks to eke out some semblance of what a woman's breast feels like...oh yeah, I gave Akuma braces. Thought it'd be funny.

Ed! From Cowboy Bebop! I messed up her foot and the placement of the dog! Ballpoint pen, index card, and one of the few anime series that truly warrants viewing.

Everyone's favorite shambling mass of plant matter and empathy, Man-Thing. Tried to use my new prismacolors. Still trying to get my groove back with them.

The Goon. Please forgive the horribly misshapen lumps of flesh that I'm attempting to pass off as arms. Same goes for the gun. I can never seem to draw those.

A munny doll of my old boss. I made this as a retirement gift, and he seemed to dig it. Word to the wise, when spraying a sealant on a munny doll, go for the matte finish. The shine on this one was fierce.

Fat Mermaid Week

My pal Renzo gave me the heads up on this. Basically, it's a week in which one is invited to draw fat mermaids. It's kinda like Draw a Bird Day...but not.

"These kids are such a disgrace. I need an older crowd"

Messing around with a sticker. Ballpoint pen and apathy.

I dunno. Figured this blog could use a random picture.

I hate how Finn's legs turned out in this. I kinda pulled that classic trick that Liefield and other artists did, where you obscure the feet or whole portions of a character to compensate for a lack of the ability to render them...I like how Slime Princess came out. Just sayin'.

"The concept of absurdity is something I'm attracted to." - David Lynch

Here's a Trikky I did with sharpie. I actually did this to drum up interest among my students for a future art unit using Munny dolls. They dug the little guy.

Ballpoint pen. Done at work. Heard that phrase in a Love and Rockets comic, and it stuck.

Two of my Munny dolls in progress. At work. Honestly, this is why I hate being an instructional aide. They need to give me an actual class to run.

Here's my Bub after being sprayed with a coat of clear acrylic. Protip: out of newspapers? Use outdated resumes!

Finished product. I call him "Archibald P. Maulington". He's a well-to-do grizzly about town.

This is the ultra-rare "missing hat" variant. Worth way too much on the collector's market.

I recently bought a Marvel Legends figure of Man-Thing. I think posing him has become my new pass-time. Look! He's already made a friend.

"Jazz hands!" Oh, Man-Thing, you're the living end.

I take it back. Man-Thing's kind of a jerk.

"You see this guy? Freakin' love this guy."

I've wanted to mention my vinyl pieces for a while now. In an attempt to buy my affection, the girlfriend gifted unto me this beautiful piece of urban vinyl. Knucklebear's 18 inches tall, limited to under 500 copies, and came with a certificate of authenticity and a print. This thing is purty (like a girl).

D'aww. He takes after me.

Another vinyl piece. Not a HUGE fan of Qee stuff, but I'll be damned if Frank Kozik isn't the bee's knees. I got a good deal on him, but not good enough to admit it's price to my family and significant other.

"Masochism is a valuable job skill." - Chuck Palahniuk

"A bunch of random sketches, send 'em to tha moon!"

Bee. Eff. Eff.

This sketch should stimulatate your mind and baby chute.
Done for my 8 year old pupil. He loves Marvel comics, and works hard. So...yeah.

Rough sketch for a painting. No idea why Blogger turned it on its side.

One more rough sketch for a painting.

You better do what he says. He looks really mad.
