Long time no post here. Sorry about that.
Well, I did this cartoon awhile ago with Jon Adams and Titmouse Studios for MTV LiquidTv. It's episode one of three. Two will be out next week.
And if it gets enough hits, MTV might order more. So if you like it, tell your friends. If you don't, tell your enemies to watch it.
It's kinda fucked up.
I get being a new artist is hard. We've all been there. And its real tempting to take from a more established artists than yourself in order to elevate your own art. Really, I get it. But when you get caught, confess. It'll go easier on you. Acting righteous and claiming that you were really ripping off "other" work that is not your own, and even claiming that you've never seen the original art is not the best way to handle the situation. All this can be seen here...http://Vincenzo-Raimondi.deviantart.com/art/Protocollo-Omega-COVER-197114549
This poor Italian artist just woke up to a shit storm of epic proportions. Do I feel bad for him? Nah
Hey people! Just letting all of you know about 2 new art blogs that I'll be associated with from now on. The first is What Not Blog spot. http://whatnotisms.blogspot.com/ It's a weekly art blog featuring some of the top talent currently in the comic book industry.
The second is Johnson Cover Hi-Lo. http://johnsoncoverhi-lo.blogspot.com/ It'll be a weekly critical examination of the current weeks comic book covers. I'm going to get down and dirty as to what I think is wrong and right about cover design.
Every year I make something by hand. And just about every year I lose to something topical/humorous. Hell, one year my first samurai costume lost to a guy who dressed up as Beetlejuice. 20 years after the fucking movie came out. Anyway, this year I wore my Batman Samurai outfit that I made last year, and the party I went to is having a photo contest after the fact. Wanna correct this injustice? Follow this link and click "thumbs up". It's a simple as that.
Thanks in advance.
And I've started to give you t-shirts. So here's a bunch for sale.
But sadly, no orders to date. But hope springs eternal. Not that I get all that much money from each shirt. It's like $2.00 a shirt or something. What a racket. But at least I'm not stuck with inventory that I can't get rid of.
Back to the drawing board.
Maybe you should follow me on twitter. Why? Because sometime I post art on there that I might not post here. Like the Venture Bros. production art I did for the Shallow Gravy episode I worked on that just aired. Like this.
It's Sunday July 17th and I've got my last B.P.R.D. cover to do. And it needs to go out the door tomorrow. So here's what I need translated as soon as possible.... "Let us burn the evil out" or something that gets that idea across if this doesn't translate well. My computer isn't doing the job and I want it done right. If you're reading this on the 18th then you're too late so don't waste your time. The cover will already be out the door.
So how about it, DA? Any proper russian speakers out there?
Thanks in advance.
I gotta say that lately the Daily DA has been pretty goddamned weak. It's rare that I find something that inspires me at all. At least in the illustration side of things. Some of it looks like it belongs on the side of a 70's van or in a high school art class. Not sure who's picking this crap, but I'm guessing they like their sauce on the weak side.
And yes, I know I'll get the comments like "Well do something about it" or something like it. To be honest, I don't have the time. I'm a working man. I'm not even asking you the reader of this journal to do something about it. I just felt like bitching about it. It's my party and I'll bitch if I
So If you're in town this week, come on by the convention and yell "You BASTARD!" to me. It'll be funny when I tell the convention guys to throw your ass out. Kidding.......Maybe.
Here's the convention info.
PS, I'm eating lots of beans in preparation for the flights over there. Should be a real gas.
So due to the overwhelming requests to give harsh critiques, I've decided to open up The Reverend Dave's College of Ass-Kickery and Salacious Critiques. What is that you say? Let me explain.
The Rev. Dave's College Ass-Kickery and Salacious Critiques or R.D.C.A.S.C will be an online place were you can get an artistic ass kicking from a group of qualified professionals. For a nominal price your ass will be handed to you on a silver platter.
Price list includes:
For $10 one of our professionals will give you an overall assessment of your portfolio. This includes an intense artistic ass-banging of epic proportion. And suggestions on what you
And I promise you'll get it. Sorry in advance if you're offended, hurt or pissed off with the result. If you want an ass kissing there are plenty of other people on this site that will line up to do so. Maybe you should ask your Mom. Unless your Mom is a bitch and never tells you what an awesome artist you are, no matter how hard to try to please her....MOM WHY DON'T YOU LOVE MEEEEE....? *ahem* back to what I was saying. I'm not your Mom. I won't blow sunshine up your ass. You deserve better. I'll try to be nice but like I said, that's not my job. If your stuff is great, I'll tell you. If it needs work, I'll tell you what I think you can do t
