Tailgunner Jo

Here's two sketches for Tailgunner Jo....a comic book character from the 80's. A client of mine wanted to pitch a game based of this fell flat.

Axel Pressbutton

Here's some sketches I did for a game idea of a comic book character from the 80's......Axel Pressbutton. He's florist.....which boggles my mind. Also I did his sexy side kick...Mysta Mystralis. It looks like this game isn't going anywhere.......oh well (sigh).

Killer Klowns from Outer Space Project

Here's more sketches I did in class. The top one being a bit more detailed than the first round of sketches....the rest in the bottom are sketches trying to match the styles of some of the students there. I'm really happy in with what I have seen so far....the kids are doing great! I'll catch you all later!


Here's a drawing I did of Keenan Wayans so I can use as a guide when I add the make up application for his role in the latest Wayans Bros productions. Looking at this drawing a kind of looks like Samuel Jackson.......Well, catch you all later.

Playing with Art Rage 2

Hey kids just wanted to post up two pieces that I did playing with Art Rage 2.....a very simple painting program from New Zealand. Well, let me know what you think?

Killer Klowns Project

Just started teaching my Character Design class for the Spring term over at Gnomon
The class project I'm having them do is redesigning characters from a classic 80's flick done by the Chiodo Bros.......Killer Klowns from Outer Space.
I had the kids watch the movie and after that talk to them a bit in what I would like for them to do......the sketches above are examples of Killer Klowns. Let me know what you all think?

This was sent by a retired Coca Cola executive. It came from one of his engineer buddies who retired from Halliburton. If you are tired of the gas prices going up AND they will continue to rise this summer, take time to read this please.

Phillip Hollsworth offered this good idea.
This makes MUCH MORE SENSE than the 'don't buy gas on a certain day' campaign that was going around last April or May!
It's worth your consideration. Join the resistance!!!!

I hear we are going to hit close to $ 4.00 a gallon by next summer, and it might go higher!! Want gasoline prices to come down?

We need to take some intelligent, united action. The oil companies just laughed at that because they knew we wouldn't continue to 'hurt' ourselves by refusing to buy gas.

It was more of an inconvenience to us than it was a problem for them.

BUT, whoever thought of this idea has come up with a plan that can really work. Please read on and join with us!

By now you're probably thinking gasoline priced at about $2.00 is super cheap. Me too! It is currently $3.19 for regular unleaded in my town.

Now that the oil companies and the OPEC nations have conditioned us to think that the cost of a gallon of gas is CHEAP at $1.50 - $1.75, we need to take aggressive action to teach them that BUYERS control the marketplace..not sellers.

With the price of gasoline going up more each day, we consumers need to take action.

The only way we are going to see the price of gas come down is if we hit someone in the pocketbook by not purchasing their gas! And, we can do that WITHOUT hurting ourselves.

How? Since we all rely on our cars, we can't just stop buying gas.

But we CAN have an impact on gas prices if we all act together to force a price war.

Here's the idea: For the rest of this year, DON'T purchase ANY gasoline from the two biggest companies (which now are one), EXXON and MOBIL.

If they are not selling any gas, they will be inclined to reduce their prices. If they reduce their prices, the other companies will have to follow suit.

But to have an impact, we need to reach literally millions of Exxon and Mobil gas buyers. It's really simple to do! Now, don't wimp out on me at this point...keep reading and I'll explain how simple it is to reach millions of people!!

I am sending this note to 30 people. If each of us send it to at least ten more (30 x 10 = 300) ... and those 300 send it to at least ten more (300 x10 = 3,000)...and so on, by the time the message reaches the sixth group of people, we will have reached over THREE MILLION consumers.
If those three million get excited and pass this on to ten friends each, then 30 million people will have been contacted!

If it goes one level further, you guessed it..... THREE HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE!!!

Again, all you have to do is send this to 10 people. That's all!

If you don't understand how we can reach 300 million and all you have to do is send this to 10 people.... Well, let's face it, you just aren't a mathematician. But I am . so trust me on this one.
Hey everyone.....just wanted to post up a message from an email that I received this morning ....wanted to pass it along and share it with all of you.

How long would all that take? If each of us sends this e-mail out to ten more people within one day of receipt, all 300 MILLION people could conceivably be contacted within the next 8 days !!!

I'll bet you didn't think you and I had that much potential, did you!

Acting together we can make a difference.

If this makes sense to you, please pass this message on. I suggest that we not buy from EXXON/MOBIL UNTIL THEY LOWER THEIR PRICES TO THE $2.00 RANGE AND KEEP THEM DOWN. THIS CAN REALLY WORK.

Keep it going!!!
