Just a motivational poster I made using a picture from the website cracked.com that reminded me of a quote I'd read about Roosevelt. I think the picture captures Marshall's words perfectly. Also, it's freaking hillarious...

commish for tim.

tim wanted teddy roosevelt on a safari standing over a crazy mythological beast. i ended up doing a manticore-sphinx thing. really fun to do. there are little bits i want to change but overall, i think i hit the mark with regards to what i planned to do.

i also enjoyed the researching process. i think its a close like ness and the uniform and the rifle are kinda/sorta close. ok, maybe not the rifle... but i still did the research. aside from the animals getting slaughtered, i now think safaris are freaking awesome.

This is for :icono-maria:. She came up with this wonderful idea and I loved it so much I had to draw it.

To quote her original:

"Frantically, John Adams tweeted and texted Thomas Jefferson 37 times in 2 minutes. (as seen in episode ALL OF THEM on HBO's 'John Adams')

"WHY IS HE NOT ANSWERING?? I KNOW HE'S THERE. Thomas don't you love me?"

“The Man Who Would Not Be King.” by Matthew Spalding, Ph.D. George Washington is one of the most recognized figures in U.S. history. But familiarity breeds contempt. More often than not, Washington is an old painting on the wall – solemn, impersonal and distant – or the subject of childhood stories and nursery rhymes. We all know that he chopped down a cherry tree and had wooden teeth. The actual Washington is much more compelling. We can all see the brilliant flourishes of Jefferson's pen, Madison's constitutional handiwork or the success of Hamilton's economic policies, and that can cause us to overlook or underestimate the magnitude of Washington's achievement. Yet he really was, as Washington's greatest biographer, James Flexner, put it, the "indispensable man" of the American founding. ...And the key ingredient in all of these things was moral character, something that Washington took very seriously and which gave to his decision-making a deeply prudential quality and to his authority an unmatched magnanimity. "His integrity was pure, his justice the most inflexible I have ever known, no motives of interest or consanguinity, of friendship or hatred, being able to bias his decision," Jefferson later observed. "He was, indeed, in every sense of the words, a wise, a good, and a great man."

George Washington, Draft First Inaugural Address, April 1789: “The blessed Religion revealed in the word of God will remain an eternal and awful monument to prove that the best Institution may be abused by human depravity; and that they may even, in some instances be made subservient to the vilest purposes. Should, hereafter, those incited by the lust of power and prompted by the Supineness or venality of their Constituents, overleap the known barriers of this Constitution and violate the unalienable rights of humanity: it will only serve to shew, that no compact among men (however provident in its construction and sacred in its ratification) can be pronounced everlasting and inviolable, and if I may so express myself, that no Wall of words, that no mound of parchm[en]t can be so formed as to stand against the sweeping torrent of boundless ambition on the side, aided by the sapping current of corrupted morals on the other.”

From George Washington's private prayer journal. "O most glorious God ... Direct my thoughts, words and work, wash away my sins in the immaculate blood of the Lamb, and purge my heart by thy Holy Spirit.... Daily frame me more and more into the likeness of thy Son Jesus Christ.... Thou gavest thy Son to die for me, and hast given me assurance of salvation...."

"Cleanse my soul O Lord, I beseech thee, from whatever is offensive to thee, and hurtful to me, and give me what is convenient for me. Watch over me this night, and give me comfortable and sweet sleep to fit me for the service of the day following. Let my soul watch for the coming of the Lord Jesus; let my bed put me in mind of my grave, and my rising from there of my last resurrection; O heavenly Father, so frame this heart of mine, that I may ever delight to live according to thy will and command, in holiness and righteousness before thee all the days of my life."

"Almighty God…I yield Thee humble and hearty thanks that thou has preserved me from the danger of the night past, and brought me to the light of the day, and the comforts thereof, a day which is consecrated to Thine own service and for Thine own honor. Let my heart, therefore, Gracious God, be so affected with the glory and majesty of it, that I may not do mine own works, but wait on thee, and discharge those weighty duties thou requirest of me."

Illo of how many Americans don't know US history.

*Note*

I know Hitler's armband is on the wrong side. Since I'm fudging history anyway I think I can move it to make it visible.

Some people can accept than they are lame...

An idea i got after a girl (not exactly a friend, but neither a nobody to me) just ask me about how a war between this two factions would result. She likes all that shit of magic world and stuff, so before anything i just said her; "well, science win... just because magic doesn´t exist"

I use (or trying to use) the same style than [link] "Phobs", I´m not a fan of him, however his style is awesome, after all he´s a traditional draftman (I mean, most of the people than predicates the advantages of traditional drawing over the digital is for having an excuse to never admit than they suck on digital media (including me)... but "phobs" is not the case)...

Just a way to start the weekend

I apparently hadn't posted this! It's the cover for Ghostbusters #3 from IDW. Had a blast on this. Really miss working with those guys. I was told to do a "Creepy" cover. The design for "The Third" is one of the few creatures I've come up with that I'm genuinely proud of. I wouldn't change a thing on that guy, though as the scripts went further along, I felt the design was perhaps slightly off for the characterization. Not sure if it's anywhere near what Eric had in his head when he was coming up with this stuff. Was very cool to see Dan Schoening "toonify" it though!

So how do I describe this crazy piece?! Well I did it for my buddy Tyler's 21st birthday. He's always talking about Abraham Lincoln and how it would be funny to have him all muscular and with guns, so yeah I figured why not! This is my second time coloring a piece and all in all I'm pretty happy with the progress. I look forward to doing more coloring and improving as time goes on. Oh and colors were done in Photoshop CS3 with the background done in Illustrator CS3. The typeface I got from [link]! I used the 28 Days Later Font cause I thought it looked so cool! Hope ya likes!
