Apple or Blackberry?

I'm loving the war between the Apple iPhone and the Blackberry. It inspired this cartoon. I was trying to find a way to have the characters eating at a Pinkberry. Couldn't make it work.

Electricity~Illustration Friday

Seems like that first love/first kiss could solve all the energy problems. A quick sketch for Illustration Friday's theme of "Electricity".

Can you afford an arm and a leg?

Another fun IDIOM to illustrate was arm and a leg. This was kinda tricky because this could easily become macabre. I decided to use mannequin parts.

Who are the best sports fans?

The play on words here is fans. The boys are holding paper fans as well as being real fans. Supposed to help kids understand multiple meanings.

Raining Cats and Dogs

This is another sketch from the IDIOMS project where I work. I really enjoyed trying to capture the cheesy news reporter. I have a very low regard for local news. They sell fear. Pure and simple. I watched a local news channel here in Los Angeles cover a high speed chase, they (get this now) actually broke for a commercial and came back to the chase. If that is not selling fear and sensationalism I don't know what is.

My comic WORKED mentioned on Comics Coast to Coast Podcast

The three gents, Justin Thompson, Brian Dunaway and Tom Racine who run Comics Coast to Coast picked WORKED as comic pick of the week in their Episode 39 - The Darrin Bell Interview (Candorville). It was a terrific surprise and I want to thank them for their kind words.

I've started inking in the iPodyessy illustration. So far, I'm pretty happy with it. My goal on this piece is to ink like I'm doing a watercolor illustration. In the past, when inking, I was too timid to lay down a lot of black. I've always wanted learn how to ink Bill Watterson, creator of Calvin and Hobbes. Watterson's inking always has this wonderfully, loose watercolor quality. His black in work is so painterly you can imagine the colors in your mind's eye.

Here is a t-shirt design I'm going to submit soon to Threadless. It just happened to fit perfectly for the latest theme over at Illustration Friday.

I remember the first time I saw 2001: Space Odyssey, I thought it was the coolest and creepiest Sci-fi flick I had ever seen. My name is Dave, and every time HAL (the main computer) would say something like, "Good morning, Dave" or "I'm sorry, I can't do that, Dave" or "What are you doing, Dave?", I got a little creeped out.

Years later, I got my first REAL computer, a Mac. I think it was a Centris 610 with a whopping 80 MB hard drive. Yes, that's correct, 80 megabytes! Anyhoo, there was this great, humorous little sound control panel that would let you assign a sound to any computer operation. Well I downloaded a bunch of those 2001: Space Odyssey sound files (ahhh, good old System 7) and assigned them to all kinds of basic computer functions. When I started the computer it would say, "Good morning, Dave". When I clicked a wrong key I got, "I'm sorry, Dave". When I shut down the computer it said, "Good-bye, Dave". There were others.

I thought this was great…at first. Then not only was it annoying, it was really kinda (you guessed it) creepy.

Get off my back!

I had a lot of fun with this project creating illustrations for idioms. Here is a color version using Illustrator.
