Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp is a great actor. I did a montage of some of his more unique characters. We have from bottom left: Hunter S. Thompson, Captain Jack Sparrow, Ed Wood, Edward Scissorhands, Willy Wonka, Victor Van Dort, and Agent Sands. All these characters are in movies which I think are awesome. Enjoy!

Rocket Sauce

So, I recently saw the Pick of Destiny thanksgiving week and it was amazing. The greatest rock movie EVER. SCREW SPINAL TAP hahaha j.k. It was really great to see these fat guys run around. It was the best. So in honor of the movie, I had this idea for an image of our rock heroes blasting off into space with the power of their rocket sauce. Rocket Sauce is what the D used to battle Beelzeboss. So here's the pencil version of the drawing. The finished piece you can find here.

Team Apocalypse

This is a sketch I did of my friends Hodge and Burroughs. They are part of Team Apocalypse and I drew my own version of them within my own comic book universe. Maybe they'll make a guest appearance in one of the issues.

Art Attack!

After looking at my favorite artists' blogs, Humerto Ramos and Skottie Young, I decided to start putting sketches and selected art on here and telling a lil story behind them. I also have a deviant site. which is:

I'll try and switch up the art so you're not looking at the same shit on both sites. I just never really put this to good use other then to bitch about movies and post after party pictures. I thought I could add a third use.

So this first piece I decided to put was something I did for a co-worker who went off to teach aviation at SIU. I told her I would do a drawing of her and haven't really gotten to it until this past month. So the inspiration for this was the very cool graphic novel, Rex Steele: Nazi Smasher by Matt Peters and Bill Presing. Have at it!!!

Arrested Development


I just got done finishing the last 13 episodes of the final season for the show "Arrested Development". Wow, I can't believe this show was canceled. There really is no way to describe it because you would have to see it for yourself how amazingly funny and brilliant this show was. I'm hoping it gets picked up by another network if the fan base gets large enough. It was THE best thing on television in the last 3 years and there will probably be nothing like it ever again. The clever plot lines, witty dialouge, and the lil things that get funnier and funnier from watching it over and over again. Each viewing you get or find something new to laugh at.

Again..tell your friends about it.

THE best thing that was on tv and prolly THE best dvd sets I own. Rent'em or buy'em.

Off to College!

Some time ago Kaje (that's Kj folks) made plans to have a final bbq softball thingie with the cousins before she ran off and went to ISU as well as LNK going to SIU also, Jona was going back to school this Thursday in Urbana. So yesterday we had the party. I am actually posting @ 2am even though I have to be up for work in 2 hours and 45 minutes. YEESH. I just couldn't sleep for some reason. Maybe it was ll the braUts. Anyways, people started showing up around 2-ish with my dad cooking most of the food and all the cousins bringing their share. I went out to pick up some brats and some strawberries around noon. Went to return "She's the Man" (my mom's choice not mine) to Hollywood and browsed the used movie section. I ended up buying nothing because "The Hard Corps" comes out this week and I REALLY want that haha. ("The Hard Corps" is the latest Van Damme movie to hit the DTV line and its also the 2nd Van Damme movie of the summer.) Don't ask me why, but I just like his movies. I guess because I think he's awesome and well thats it. YOU SUCK SEAGAL.

ANYWAYS, everyone pretty much showed up by 3-4ish and we ate, chetted for a bit, and kicked the sack around. Ew I meant Hackey Sack you pervs. We played 3 softball games. I dont remember the scores, but I do remember how much fun it is. We got alot of good runs in and alot of errors. But I ALWAYS love the way we play. Then around the end of the last game, Lala showed up and we all went back to the house to eat and sit around and then eat some more.

We had a lot of good times this past summer and I've think we've grown tighter as family from the many visitations and family outtings this year. The night ended like most other family party nights: People saying bye and then just hanging around till everyone peels off at some point and it ends up being 3 hours later. I actually cut it short because I have work in the morning but as you know, I am writing this blog and my clock says 1:52am.

- Kaje and Lnk off to college. Man I'm getting old. Well, I wish them the best of luck and right after they left, I already missed them. Granted it's just school but they're not there like they usually would be. They are like a whole 2-3 hours away and that makes me sad, because I've felt closer to both of them this summer then I have any summer and now they have to go. But, it's just distance. They will always be there and they are always family. And a long car ride can't change those two things. Ever.

Here are the pics. ENJOY!!!!

But I'm supa tall. I'm actually on my knees...see on the left, thats how tall Richard really is. haha  Posted by Picasa

Richard's not that tall, Kaje and Lala are just short. Posted by Picasa
