Just a bit of behind the scenes look at the creation of the limited edition LIB print that will be available at the Albuquerque Comic Expo this weekend. Much as a lot of other works, it all starts with a doodle, then inks and ends with tones. For the final look at the print, join us at Facebook fan page.

Wow, I've heard "busy is good" although I would admit, I would rather be busy than not, but being busy sure makes the time go fast. Rather than rant on and on about time, I thought I would share the lady above (title: "BOOM"), a piece I recently did for a submission this past week. Much like the new Beastie Boys latest rad revisited track, I too revisited an idea that was making circles in the brain. It may look similar to the Happy Holidays image done recently, but I just keep seeing it differently. I took a few splashes of ink wash to it along with some hues and a sprinkle of halftones and I really felt I got it right this go round. I suppose the feeling is mutual among artist, hence the many remixes and re-imagines out there.

Been missing a couple of these and the Mondays as well, but better late than never as they say. Batman Beyond and a beyond Joker from The Batman cartoon. Why the mash up? Because the person that suggested this Saturdays submission requested a Batman Beyond and I know he is a HUGE fan of this version of the Joker. Maybe its the Tim Burton inspired sleeves that does it for him, don't know.

So this weeks suggested piece for MM is Grieves and Budo's Pack It Up. The suggestion not only stops at the tune but the piece must be influenced by the music video. I'll admit that I've never heard the music before so I took to the web and became a fan instantly. Thanks Erica for the suggestion, I definitely dug the beat.

So this might not be from the days of future past per say but it should have been. Invader Zim full fills my need for over use of purple and sarcasm in my animation watching. Best part, since it is on Nick, I get to share it with the kiddos and not think twice about the humor Johnen has provided us. Some say this would be a WINNING situation. Yeah that was bad and over used, I know. As Zim would say: "This has nothing to do with jelly!" DOOM, DOOM!

I'm a little late on my Staple! wrap-up but hey it's not easy to put such a rad show into words. For all that have attended the show in the past or dropped by this last one, you know that the day(s) is filled with creative forces from all sides and evening with live art to boot. Great times to meet and catch up with friends and get a LOT of commissions out. Speaking of commissions, a special thanks to everyone who was patient with me during the wait. Due to the time frame I was only able to take a couple of pics at the show. Here we go...
Staple! was extra special this year because it also was the first event that Mike-E and I were able to debut the collected works of Lonely in Black Vol.1. Of course I had to take a photo of the first person to take get the book. Thanks Kali for the Support!
Some commissions that came my way as well. Not much to explain the requests are from one end to another. These are just a couple that I managed to take a quick photo of. Thanks Brain for letting me take a crack at the mash up this year.
Like to Thank all the Staple crew for letting us be a part of yet another great show, looking forward to next year!
