Hey guys (or the couple of people who watch me hehe!), I worked on a cover for "Domino Lady Threesome" #1 from Moonstone Books and it's out this may (if you would like to pre-order it or telling your local comic shop it would be great).

For anyone wanting to see it (the cover at least) it was featured in Bleeding Cool here:

Hi everyone.

My Wife and I are raising some money so we are offering our "Artist Exclusive sketchcards" for a very low price.
We are retiring from the sketch card world for quite a while so our last set will be Cryptozoic's "Dc's new 52 set"

Check the following link to see the ones we have available, if you are interested please send me a Note.

I have a question regarding the "Dr Martin's Bleed proof white" product and kind of need help with it.

Back when I made a course with Joe Kubert I received a Dr Martin's white to use over the inks to fix mistakes and create effects but it kind of disappeared and I had to buy another one recently since I wanted to try my hand at inking again.

But the "thing" I received is kind of weird, it doesn't stick to the brush so it's quite difficult to apply, and when I apply it is kind of oily (and it's well stirred). What's worse is that when i try to reapply ink to cover it the ink won't stick, it dries the ink almost instantly but it becomes like a crust that wont stay over the white product and most of the time the crust get stuck to the brush as it's being applied.
It also damaged a brand new prismacolor pen as soon as it touched the Dr Martin white product on a page (and the white was dry from the day before)

It's been several years since I used the product but I can't remember it being like that, i actually remember a totally different experience with it.

How do I know if I got a damaged product?, or Dr. Martin's bleed proof white works like that and I'm doing something wrong?

I wont be trying another Dr Martin product until i know whats going on, but was also wondering what other product can be used to cover ink (with white) to fix mistakes and make effects?.

Cada arcilla es diferente y esta es especial para hacer los detalles más delicados.

Próximamente tendremos más a disposición.
I just got my "Mixtape" Artist Exclusives yesterday and wanted to announce they are for sale along with my 4 PUPS and 4 Zombies vs Cheerleaders AE sketchcards.

The Artist Exclusives are the sketchcards we artists receive in the form of payment from the card companies and is the only way we make money for our work on the sets, so they are of higher value than the regular sketchcards found in the sets and are marked with a golden or metallic AE mark on the back by the manufacturer.

Im selling them for 50$ each, they include free shipping and a free sticker or book marker.


Here you can see my 3 Mixtape Sketchcards i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff…

Here you can see my 4 PUPS sketchcards i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff…

The 4 Zombies vs Cheerleaders are blanks, so i can create custom pieces.

And here you can see the free stickers or book markers i mentioned i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff…

If interested, please note me or send me an email to:     axigan yahoo .com      (remove the spaces)

.-"Someone once asked a famous painter how long it took to complete a painting. His response was "25 years." It is not just the amount of time it takes to actually build a piece, it is also the years of work needed to attain the necessary skills and tools."-.

We where kind of forced to move from our home in three days last week, since then we have been moving stuff and settling in with my mother in law, so artistically I haven't been able to do anything at all, I still need to find a comfortable place where I can draw at our new home.
Also the magazine I work for hasn't given me any work either and closed for vacations (it's odd because they only did it in December) so I feel I'm kind of walking on a VERY thin/fragile rope right now.


Anyway I also received news today about my "Viva la Ladillita" mini poster prints that are FINALLY online at Indy planet, if you have a couple of bucks to spare i would really appreciate the help by purchasing some of these posters ^^ (if you spread the word around ill really appreciate it).

I just remodeled my blog to make it look less like a blog and a bit more "professional". Also created a Domain for it with the free .TK domain names, so i have my blog as glenfx.tk (is not a .com, but it serves just the same)

Im not really much of a talker (i guess you already noticed that.. lol) but I also connected to Twitter, found it to be a good source of information and communication (though many people abuse it with stupid things).
Anyway here is my tweet link twitter.com/glenfx

Lastly I've been watching Otis Frampton :iconotisframpton: work live (really cool) and i got excited and made a few marker sketches, I must say im very happy with them (ill be posting those later this week).
I found that using prismacolor fine point markers on "opalina" boards (local paper brand) I can clean the pencil work and use regular prismacolor markers on top and it wont smear the inked lines. (so im very...VERY happy about it)

BTW, thanks everyone for all the faves and watches, I havent been keeping track and thank everyone individually.
So Thank you all.

Hey, this week i got one of my works and one of my games featured in mytoons.com frontpage. Its the very first time i get something featured somewhere :D

I also took a couple of weeks off and built a model aircraft, i had to build 60% of it from scratch since its a very old and very cheap model ^^, havent been able to finish it because i dont have the propper paints yet, but its been cool to build something in plastic for a change.

Ive been working on several things at the same time, a comic, a game, my regular work and a web page, also fixing some pages for the webpage (web comic style) but seems i never get anything done.

I feel im really slow at things, my regular work drains me quite a lot even if it isn't too much to be done.
When i feel i want to create things i have to go out, and when i get back home im without the desire to do anything at all, or its time to go to bed.
Some other times I start looking at the 800+ DA images (i don't see them daily, so they pile up on me :P) so after looking at 50 im encouraged to draw something, but if i keep on looking that desire goes away as i feel saturated. (Damn im weird), don't know how others are active in a gazillion forums and yet have time to do lots of work.

I REALLY need a way to organize time and not getting bored by it. (any ideas?)

Im very slow on my comic because i really need materials to work with and its quite difficult to find good materials in my country, starting with the ink, the ink is just terrible, the black ink is 40% watered black so it looks really BAD on paper, and the paper is beyond expensive. I purchased a "local" layout 25 sheets block at 45$ and have been "inking" with Pilot drawing pens, so the lines are somewhat flat looking.
Also the only markers im able to find here are Chartpacks at 15$ each, and they sell here only 12 colors (you know.. markers are for kids!, so 12 colors are more than enough, and use pink for the skin) >_<.

The only online art shop that sells internationally and has paypal, accepts paypal only for US citizens.. and i MUST use paypal, cant use my credit card because of a monetary control in my country and all my online money is in paypal.

So im really starting to work on the idea of trading sketchcards for art materials. I was thinking something in the lines of:
-a full color sketchcard for 3(copics) or 4(prismas) markers, or 1 copic marker pad or 1 Canson Pro layout Pad.

.-
Anyway, a few months back i won first prize for the UFO Hunters contest from History Channel, and a few weeks ago i received the prize package in the mail... but it was only the empty box of the Ipod Touch T_T, somewhere in the middle in transit the equipment was stolen and i received the empty ipod's box... yay! -_-, and haven't heard from the people who sent the packages either after the few emails i sent.

Out of curiosity I went to apple's store trough the itunes application, but even apple has the stupid US only restriction for everything?, whats the whole point of having an ipod in my country anyway??... to have a small bunch of crappy applications at your disposal?, i didn't even see Latin music in the freaking store under my country.
So that's what they call Globalization?.... riiiight!!.

my last rant (i hope) now all the cinemas in my country are showing movies dubbed in Spanish, so now not only do we have to wait a few months later to see the movies in the theater, we have to also be punished by listening them in crap dubs in Spanish too?, no wonder why piracy here is so strong, that and the fact that original movies are sold at 50-60$ per DVD, and it gets worst for games being sold at 170+$ each.
