Sometimes I wish I had a beard... but mostly I dont.

This was a reject Jim Henson sketch for A Tale of Sand Archaia Comics is putting out in the near future. Pooped a little orangey red background in there, no reason. This was a little too animated (and probably sloppy) than what they were looking for at the time, but I'm excited to see the finished stuff!

Christmas Time

It's Christmas?

Well Merry Christmas.

Here's some other unrelated items:

An in progress page for Darla Dare and the Amazing Globonauts (art © me , story © Sam Lewis) More to come on that REAL soon...

And a small army of resin Mr.Easter figurines... really small actually, I only made 8 or so and broke most of them :-/ But in the coming weeks I hope to make another edition and if you're interested in owning one send me and email ( otherwise hopefully they'll be available online soon.

Merry Christmas from me, Dog Linus, Mr.Easter, Tesana, and the Low Country!

Darla Dare and the Amazing Globonauts

Flat colors for Crash Banton and Moo Rang, the courageous pilot and noble mechanic of the interstellar Globehopper!

More to come from the outer ring... by the way I have a huge crush on Crash.. I could just draw him all day long.

Status: MIA

I haven't been posting! I know! "WHY !?", you ask!? I've just been real busy.

The real world closes in a little more every day as the end of the quarter grows nigh and I'm not totally sure I'm qualified for life in the wild just yet... or ever. But in the mean time here's a bizarre drawing I did in class... its a dandy lion and its scary.

Also, I'm making no promises, but I'm working on some Mr. Easter figures for (hopefully) SPX... but we'll see what happens! Here he is in progress:

Signing Mr.Easters!

Poster designed by Kevin Panetta

July fourth if you’re in the DC area and wanna hang whilst I personalize your copy of A Home for Mr. Easter with loving care then swing by Big Planet Comics in Vienna, VA!!!

There will be pins and other goodies up for grabs so swing by if you're in the area and have a gay ol' time.

I'll be takin' the train from Georgia to Virginia, I love adventure!!

Also I did an interview for Jazma so if you're bored and at a loss of reading material... then there is that.

And the reviews have continued to be real positive and sweet and I appreciate all of them!

Anywho, can't wait to escape Georgia where everyday I open my door and know exactly what its like living on the face of the sun...

Brooklyn Gremsley: 1,000 Deaths 1,000 More

(fig. 1A)

A little more process work and unfinished pages from Brooklyn Gremsley. The first 6 or so pages basically explore her unusual talent for escaping death. She reflects on several different animals that she's had the pleasure of being eaten alive by, but this is her first time down the gullet of a gator.
... girl just can't catch a break...

P.s. "Mr. Grin" sends his love, y'all (see fig. 1A above).

I'll be sure to post these when they're finished... but in the mean time, here they are.

And here's a tiny sculpy Liny... he was not part of my final... but shhh.

Kids with Guns!

Some unfinished illustrations for my friend William Casey's senior film Liam and Ben... which consists mainly of kids with guns battling some pretty nasty veggie monsters and learning to get along... but i know all you heard was kids with guns, so HERE THEY ARE.

Cant think of a better SOUNDTRACK... after all kids with guns and Savannah ( C-PORT) kinda go hand in hand.

p.s. I do so miss Bear Face and the good times

Don't Worry, it's my Birthday

It's true. Fear not, I've become 22.
Here's my African Art notes for today!:

I left the SCAD equestiran team one up to you, dear reader, to finish.
I have nothing against the equestrian department, I consider it a privilege to go to a school where some major in comics and others major in ponies... maybe SCAD should be called Mrs. Paula Wallace's School for Imaginary Careers in ... whatever.

I did none of those things in reality... just in spirit. (well... except turn super saiyan level 200 billion. That did happen over breakfast).
Over all Birthday Day 2010 has been a total success, I've aged a year and had a good time doing it.

OH p.s. I WANT A PIGLET to name Prickle.

Goodbye Bear Face

My doggie Tess the Bear Faced Terror died Friday.
Heart attacks shouldn't happen to puppy dogs, little loyal spirits should be allowed to live forever.

She's sorely missed.

p.s. Im never going to die. It doesn't look like much fun.

Backgrounds, Boards, and Brooklyn ... oh my.

Aesop backgrounds: 3 of different entrances to Aesop's cave and the other a part of Dr.Stoatenstien's lab. the middle is a doodle of my dog LINUS who's diet consists of children and has nothing to do with Aesop.

... some of these are out of sequence because pieces are missing... but maybe you wont actually try to read it

and Im still working on Brooklyn...
It kinda feels like that last picture

Working on this comic is making me notice more and more my love/hate relationship with crocodilians, I fear them and yet all I wanna do is poke them with sticks from a safe distance ...

Brooklyn Gremsley

Here she is, my senior project still on the slab. Twelve 22x30 gouache and watercolor painted pages due at the end of the quarter.... why on earth would I do this to myself you ask? Because deep down inside is an evil self deprecating Brooke Allen who never passes up a chance to self sabotage... curse her.

So heres a little process, if you've got time to kill and you're curious about what on earth I was thinkin when I made A Home for Mr.Easter you can see my post on process HERE.

more to come from the lil studio of horrors.

I know some of this is redundant, but these were the Aesop designs that got displayed (and ultimately won!!!!) at Citrus Cel this year.

Next step: get these sheeps in motion!

This time Vengeance was spelled right... but if you read any of the character bios there is a bounty of typos ... but I guess I was banking on no one would read it... D:

(story boards, animatics, and backgrounds to come!)
