WORKED the comic strip

Here are two comics from my latest cartoons strip titled, "WORKED". The entire strip is done in Adobe Illustrator CS3. Still in the early stages of character development, but I like the style of the cartoon. It just needs the spit and polish that comes with... well... work.

Micron Pens

Tried to see if I could get a THICK and THIN look with Micron pens. I think I did. Had to use some pressure, but I think it worked. I'm gonna ink my next strip that way. I like the control with the Microns, not as deep a black as with the dip, quill pens. Hate having to wait for the lines to draw with the dip pens. If I can get the line I want with the Microns, then I may start using them. Is there a PERFECT pen... I dunno. I think it is allusive like the Holy Grail.

Boss Character Design

Trying to come up with a boss character for my NEW strip. I was working on a gag about the boss trying to grow hair with some hair transplants.

Comic Con 2007 Pics

I had a GREAT time at the CON this year. It had been several years since I attended. Man has it grown. Next year I'd like to have a table in Artists Alley. Here are just a few pics I took! Enjoy!

Bladerunner characters were everywhere. Apparently there is yet ANOTHER director's cut DVD coming out. (Pssst! I still prefer it WITH the naration)

Evil-lynn from HE-MAN! (as I have been informed by the posts below...okay, okay...I'm a loser!)

This cat character make-up was AWESOME. The detail on the face. Very professional.

Really cool spaceship models. I want all of them.

While I took this pic of DOBBY, a guy had just purchased it for $700. Wow!

My friend Katie McDee with Conan.

My friend Kevin Tong at the Bongo booth.

Matt Groening just happened to be walking by. I shook his hand and said, "I Love the Simpsons!" Am I smooth or what?

Finally, I got to meet the one and only John Nevarez. He remembered who I was, and was very nice and encouraging. Great guy!

Stephen Silver, my other favorite character designer (see John Nevarez above). Stephen may be the nicest guy in the industry and always helpful and encouraging.

Arrrgggh! Some mighty fine pirate costumes ye got thar!

Gigantor takes me out!

Excellent Predator costume!

Doug Sneyd. Perhaps the BEST playboy cartoonist, EVER! The woman in his cartoons are the prettiest and sexiest. His originals go for THOUSANDS!

Tons of Star Wars characters. These were among some of the best.


Amazing statue at the WETA booth. Up close these are uber-realistic.

TV head dude. I have NO idea what he was promoting. Just looked funny to me.

There are a BUNCH more pictures, but I must get back to my own work, after being so inspired by the CON!

The Cruncher

Here is another character idea for the Math Masters. This guy is THE CRUNCHER. (number cruncher) This is a real challenge trying to keep these characters young looking...say 13 years-ish. Welcome suggestions.

New character called GEO

This girl (I might call her Geo) is another Math Master. Maybe she specializes in geometry.

Younger Version!

Hope she looks younger...more school age...say 13?

Check out Jonathan Mahood! Great Cartoonist!

There are so many bad cartoon strips on the web but I found a real gem. I stumble upon this strip called Bleeker: The Rechargable Dog and what a great strip it is. Excellent writing, art and inking. Take a look at more of his strips at this link BLEEKER !

I'm glad this cartoon won first place!

I've always thought Segways are silly looking. This was my dig at Segways and our culture. As it turns out, people have already been "Pimping" their Segways. Take a look !
