so as the solicitations for for september cutout date draws near i have to make issue 3 covers, as each issue has 2 covers, a more serious one and a more humorous one, i realized i really wanted to use this piece as a funny cover
and so... world most adorable devourer of worlds, Mia ! XD
oh btw those things in the background tho tchulhuish in appearance are actually simplified depictions of a basic lich in death vigil
This is going to be the picture used for my new banner for comic cons. I did a poll and asked what I should draw, and the "jumble" of other characters won out by a landslide.
I drew this on large comic paper and stitched the whole thing together in Photoshop after I scanned it in piece by piece. I need it to be large because it's going to be blown up about 9 times larger than I usually work and I had to make sure the quality would hold up.
I don't think anyone knows what happened many years after Dorthy, Scarecrow, Tin Man and the Lion met the wizard......!!They went back to f...kn OZ!! This time it was for something a little different..
THE LION became so damn courageous after meeting the wizard that he started conquering over vast amounts of land which gradually turned him into a evil son of a warlord bastard. The ones he ruled over didn't feel that he was no match for the Wizard of OZ so the lion wanted to prove himself by cutting off the wizards head and showing his people.
TIN-MAN was only given a temporary heart. So after a while it faded away. The guy craved another heart so much that he killed people, gouged out they're hearts and consumed them. He thought that by eating them it would maybe solve his problem. It just made him a mass murdering asshole. He returned to get another heart.
THE SCARECROW was given a brain....unfortunately the Wizard f.d up and gave him the brain of damn psycho. So ol straw face can't get rite in the head. He wants to get even with the wizard for that little problem.
DOROTHY became an old ass, weird and lonely woman who drags around the dead carcass of Toto. She wants the wizard to make her young again and toto back from doggy heaven......with a side of puppy chow.
I had no clue it was this f...d up for those guy...damn!
As soon as December 25th hits Santa's and his elves leave to start there massive gift giving to all the good little boys and girls around the world. There's one thing that I don't think anyones knows which I feel should be in the history books though. He's got a evil sister who wants his ass dead! Her name his SINta Claus!.....yeah I know...crazy isn't it...no idea he had a sister! Now Sinta who lives about 20 miles away from Santa's place creates along with her evil ass dwarves a Powerful ass robot every year to wipe out the old fashioned, perpetually jolly, rosey cheeked, somewhat obese Santa but can't ever seem to kill the milk and cookie eating bastard. Mainly because of these four ass kicking elves that he travels with and a special sword that he carries that can literally cut thru pretty much anything. I believe he purchased that shit from some info-mercail one late night while he was up getting his usual nightly snack. Anyways...Sinta will one day do away with the can't pee straight because his bellies in the way Santa. When she doe's I think we'll all feel the difference.

Going through some old hard drives, I found a few JPEGs for some old art.
This piece was done for the Art Show of STAR WARS Celebrations III in 2005. I was trying to go for that Sunday newspaper strip feel. This was the first STAR WARS piece I'd drawn since the mid-90s; I was pretty nervous and I think it shows a little. Still, it's a fun piece.
When a friend asked what the contraband in hand actually WAS, we came to the conclusion that it must be Wookiee Chow; Chewbacca appears to be gnawing on the crate.
***Update*** After Googling "companion cubes', I now know what everyone is asking. No, they are not companion cubes; those are storage crates from the original STAR WARS films.

Another oldie! This one might actually be from the 20th century.... the late 1900s!
It's a cover I did for Michael Avon Oeming's HAMMER OF THE GODS comic. I like the minimalist approach, and the simple solution for the trees in the background. It really sells that snowy Nordic vibe, I feels....
As a belated tribute to my pal Wes' birthday (check him out at Scary Crayon), I wanted to put him in another "Dashing & Dumbass" cartoon. I think this may have to be an ongoing series. XD
And I'm embarrassed to say that second panel is only a slight exaggeration of how I really get about certain films. It's a testament to the patience and grace of my friends that they still invite me out to movies.
This is another one of the new slides I prepared for my "10 Things I Hate About Webcomics" presentation at Anime USA this year. The idea behind the whole thing was to poke fun at common webcomics tropes, cliches, and/or bad habits and to help new creators recognize them and then either avoid them or exploit them (because anything, even tropes, done well can still make for good entertainment). This stuff can be applied to a lot of other media as well and I think most creators (myself included) have been guilty of them at one point or another.
This was the first part of the "Webcomics as Soapbox" segment (the second part covered the "Straw Man Argument" and can be seen here: [link] ). The art was taken from a comic a did a few years ago where I actually did just rant for 8 straight panels. Thankfully, I learned my lesson and can now ridicule myself for your benefit.
Check out some of my previously posted art slides for the webcomics presentation below:
