Happy Halloween, boys and ghouls!

NO, I'm not one of those people who think the whole world wants to hear the stupid fucking mixtape that they painstakingly put together after the breakup with their significant other/boss who decided it would be best for everyone involved if they just took the job offer to be night shift manager at the Big Boy two towns over. even though I'm fucking awesome. FACT! :D hey I was already making a copy for one of my friends, plus I just wanted an excuse to photoshop my logo onto a pumpkin. woohoo!

and if you're in the mood to see your favorite horror movie badboys chillaxing in the same VIP lounge as their MTV rockstar buddies, check out the super secret Video Companion that I CLEVERLY hid away so it wouldn't bog my blog down. bog the blog. that's hard to say. hey I was watching em all anyway! like I have anything better to do. plus it gave me an excuse to work out the anxiety caused by my recurring nightmare where I get an awful haircut at some cheap mall salon and then wake up as the lesbian it used to belong to. eep!

and don't forget to vote and leave a comment on my SPOOKTACULAR Threadless submission, Something Borrowed.

Something Borrowed - Threadless, Best T-shirts Ever

a sample of what awesomeness you'll find in the Video Companion. and I've never worked at a Big Boy, by the way. in case you were still wondering.

Collect All 20!

no way! I totally say that!

this is practice for a huge multi-artist collaboration that I plan on asking a few people to take part in sometime in the next few months. then it'll hopefully grow from there.

to give you an idea of how long I've wanted to do a cool retro sticker like this... my computer says I scanned in the original Garbage Pail Kids and Good Times trading cards I used for it on april 16, 2006!

I left my wallet in my other fanny pack.

practicing a 5 minute sketch for Linzie Hunter's 5 minute doodle! group.

inspired by the random 5 minute long song I picked to time me (Spacehog - In the Meantime), and one of my friend nate's catchprases. and to lol @ the 90's even MORE, guess what song came on right afterwards... 4 Non Blondes - What's Up. shyeah! it was the bomb!

And I've never met a girl like you before.

I'm tryin! I didn't redraw everything over and over again, I didn't obsess over wonky placement, I just drew lines and said go with it.

I pulled this chick out of nowhere, but it probably would be better if I drew from some actual reference for once. sooo... who wants to volunteer to be my model? huh? jk. but seriously. that would rock.

Well then tell them to stay out of the way!

this is the bottom half of the front of a wallet collaboration with Justin White for it's taken me way to long to get this done because everyone else's battle wallets just kick so much ass and I want ours to be fucking EPIC!

my inside sketch is at the same level of completion and they probably collectively need about 10-12 more hours before we can have a complete wallet mock-up. I'm slow.

Frank Wastelayer: Private Detective is a character of mine and an adult cartoon idea that I've had for well over two years now. Frank's an aging, once-great, down-on-his-luck warrior who's given a second chance at fame and thrust back into the world of heroism. he's basically Conan meets 70's Hanna-Barbera mystery show, and combines my favorite elements of classic fantasy art, cartoons, video games, sword & sorcrey flicks, and dusty old pulp novels. and if given the chance, I am so ready to pitch this badboy to Adult Swim. do YOU happen to know anybody I should talk to?

Sacred Heartbreaker or "Every Little Thing She Does is Black Magick"

it may not look bad-ass yet, but it will! I don't know why I started drawing this; I just do what the demons living in my Dio records tell me to. now they're telling me to draw a baby elephant riding a giraffe.

Everybody's Working In Progress for the Weekend!

"Halloween 1983" wakka wakka wakka!

FUCKIN A! girls and their boobs are a lot easier to draw when I actually have them in front of me. but when that happens, the only thing further from my mind than drawing is that episode of Saved By the Bell where the gang spends the night in a sporting goods store at the mall in order to be first in line for U2 tickets, but then gets tangled up with some shady characters in a wacky off-the-wall dash for cash that will keep you in stitches! shit, I wonder if that's on soon.

I'm not the best at drawing girls. I should really be doing it a lot more.

I JUST figured out how to upload pictures from my camera phone. I'm also trying to grow the coolest mustache and sideburns of all time, and maybe someday they'll even connect! oh boy! and even if they don't, at least I'm pretty.

dig the hot pink paint in my bedroom? yeah I bet you do.
