So I uploaded a bunch of pictures (almost a whole page worth) some old some new. Most of them are black and white but there a few color ones. Hope you enjoy.
I say...God is the pattern of chaos.
If you think you know the pattern you belittle God.
God is the beauty of the unknown.
If you think you know beauty it is because the world is broken.
Truth IS - this is THE miracle.
If you don't believe me, seek truth.
Satoshi Kon beloved Director DeceasedSadness, Satoshi Kon (a favorite director of mine) has recently died. http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2010-08-25/director-satoshi-kon-wife-writes-about-his-passing
HomeworkSo I've been crazy busy taking summer classes. I'm back in colorado which is nice on the one hand (seeing friends) and lame on the other (wife still in Texas) but what really compelled me to do this Journal was the fact that while I was doing homework for art history I came across this amazing video. Enjoy.

Goodbye To Frank FrazettaI just discovered that one of the most iconic illustrators has met his end. Frank Frazetta died on May 10th.
On a different note I've found my new favorite tool. An online color scheme generator. It also has some really cool tools for web designers (like myself from time to time), exporting CSS and XML documents.
Three years since last Journal...Wow, I have really been holding back on this journal. Three years! Seriously.
Anyway let's get the big stuff out of the way: I'm Married and have two kids now. Because of all of the goings on that entails I'm still working on my Bachelors. You'd think it would be art that I'm going for but I'm really annoyed that they want to turn me into a "gallery artist" rather than allowing me to be an illustrator/designer like I am.
I was also out of the state for a while (down in Texas) but I'm back at least for the summer I missed Colorado so much. Of course the flip side is my wife is still stuck down in Texas due to her work situation
But trying to keep my spirits up and hopefully I'll post more than once every couple of years.
What's up.I feel it's time to update and at least get the b-man rant off my front page.
I mover about a month ago down the mountain to Glendale (inside Denver) and I've been slowly decorating, I'm still slim on furniture and my computer isn't up yet (posting this from work I'm bad). Still in all I'm liking the apartment regardless of how sparse it is.
Also I've been attending Denver University for one quarter now and I'm set to start up by January 2nd at which point my life will become unimaginably busy.
Ta-ta for now
The B-Man rant Holey shit fuck nuggets of flaming joy and madness amazing insanity tinged by dreams of mad men and condensed beauty all covered in dust!
So back from my chosen Neverland known as burning man. Suffice to say I've had another wonderful experience, in fact many, all squashed into a single week. To try and describe burning man to someone who hasn't been there is like trying to explain color to someone who's been blind from birth. I am mealy trying to sift through the indescribable event and separate my experience from the playa dust that has seeped into the very essence of my being.
First off the man burnt early this year, but we all burnt him again. On Tuesday some guy climbed up on the man and set off a firework that caught and torched the thing. Apparently he wasn't just drunk he had a point. Last year his art car (an "Art Car" is any contraption that motors it's way around the playa, often shooting flames and inva
Crappy WeekWell crappy couple of weeks.
First I broke up with the female I was seeing, never a cheerful event for me. Then shortly after I got a ridiculous rash, Pityriasis Rosea, which didn't really do much except make me look horrible and itch when I was sweating, thus further souring my mood. The rash is finally clearing up but then I broke the turning signal switch on my car, for the second time. I'm still fixing that, and to boot it took me way too long to upload the new bits of artwork Ive made to this site.
But I shall not be daunted, at the end of this week I will be going to Burning Man, and I refuse to be upset at the one place I can finally be myself and feel normal. All things considered it's probably good that I'm not currently involved with anyone, should make burning man more interesting.
In other news I've finally gotten a damn myspace. I only did it to drive people to my website, but if you folk want to friend me after that rant here's the link.
He returnsWoah I've been away for a long time. Anyway I'm actually properly doing the print selling thing now, I enabled it and then I never made anything available. But now there are prints galore and more to come so you should buy them.
In other news, I've decides to start a company, I don't know what I'm calling it or exactly what it will do suffice to say it will act as a way to work on all my many projects. Plus if I get stiffed doing freelance my personal finances don't take the hit.
Anyway I hope to be more active here for the next few months so you all can look forward to more artwork form me.

Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT TOOLS DO YOU USE TO WORK?
Canson Montval or Bristol paper 300gsm, 0.3 mechanical pencil + graffiti 0.3 mm B, pencils 2B and 6B, and kneaded rubber.
Disposable ink pens 0.05, 0.1 and 0.8. French curve set, 40cm ruler. Light table. Crow quill nibs. Acrylic black ink.
The brushes I use to ink, the one format I do like is a round liner (Fine Liner Sable 2/0 302). There are many formats but particularly I like that one because it is perfect for contouring, outlining and for doing fine details, it keeps the trace steady and straight, and many people like to use it for signatures.
But I think the tools should be tested and chosen individually by each person. If you don't work well with nibs then try pens. If you don't like mechanical pencils then use regular pencils. Don't try to get the same tools that your favorite artist uses, thinking you're going to be able to make it just like them because those tools work for them. It's t

I haven't done a journal in ages and I just updated the look of my profile page and it called for a new one of ....these. So! Let me update you.
I have been very busy, and artwork is coming along slowly, as everyone who actively watches me knows. Sorry about that! I promise I'll be better. <3
I also want to give a special thank you to everyone that showed support of me with the recent hullabaloo... I was really overwhelmed and touched. So thank you so much~! It really helped me get through it. c:
Also for anyone that has not noticed some time in the undecided future, I will be starting my own online manga! I'll be posting the pages here in my gallery. It'll be called Lemuria. I have set up a special sub-gallery just for it now, though it only boasts two im
A quick update on my absenceHello DAers!
My long absence due to multiple projects (and teaching, and graduate school) is probably a month away from coming to an end. I apologies for those who sent me IMs and didn't hear back, sometimes for months. If there is a rush it's almost always better to contact me through my website contact form, as I'll see that right away.
Also, I should have lots of fun skeletals to show off in the coming months (and years) thanks in part to the work I put in over the last 9 months. I look forward to chatting with you all again in a few weeks!
Features of October 2018And here we have October's edition of the feature journals! Come look through some spoopy entries and give them some love
I see some of you guys have really improved since the last feature journal I've done XD
