Guess who finally watched The Watchmen

Decided to catch the 9:25pm show of The Watchmen after work, dinner, and more work. I went in there "blind" and the verdict is I really liked it. Even though I talked about it a bunch with the Squad and new the ending I think my interest only peaked til after talking to some people. I wasn't really that excited that it was coming out. I think it would've made for a better mini-series like a Band of Brothers or something.

The action choreography was excellent and the opening credits are amazing. The choices in cast were perfect. I have to say Zack Synder makes visually arresting films.

My only gripe is the bad guy looks like a ken doll, a college fraternity preppy sweater vest wearing ass clown. He wasn't sinister or evil enough to me. I can see why Synder chose the meaningful music that he used throughout the film. I also knew that he stayed very true to the original novel (so I'm told) and it's underlining themes.

I'd watch it again....could've used less blue dongage. But whatevs.

Here's a quick pen and highlighter sketch I did at work.

Tired from work. Relaxin' now. Just got some din din and watching LOST and recharging my batteries. More portfolio afterwards. Better tomorrow here I come.

St. Patty's Day!

Hey all,

Well the day's almost over so this drawing is way too late but I'm sure there's drunken people still slammin' them down at the bars and puking on each other's faces. So I think it's still alright to post a Patty's Day themed sketch.

I didn't do anything really, I did where green today and a bomb ass Patty's Day hate but other then that it was just a another crap day at work.

Just had some dinner around 8:30 after I got home from getting my hair did. Busted out the tablet and continued to work on some portfolio pieces. (Gotta get this shit done!)

All the while I caught up on some Reaper on YouTube.

Anyhoo here's today's sketch...done at work.

A case of the Mondays...

So this drawing can go one of two ways. It looks like I'm a stoner and whenever I take a hit, I get this incredible feeling of my brains shooting out of my head like one of those cannon ball men at a circus. Or it could be my brains clever way of escaping from the crap that is my day job. Oh sweet release.

Since I don't smoke, I'll lean towards the second one. The thing in my mouth is the fuse and my head is the cannon...brain go fly away. Lucky bastard.

Enjoy the rest of your week. Hopefully I can too.

The weekend

The weekend went by so fast. It always does when you're having fun. I worked on my art majority of the day Saturday and then later that night I attended my bff's nephews birthday party with my lady friend. ;)

Sunday I slept in (Boo) had breakfast with Jp Jax and Juliet. Jax's parents came to the house and we had a mini party. Nicole stopped by after the Southside Irish Parade was over and hung out with me and the fams. Good times and now it's Monday. Blah.

Last night I watched Let The Right One In. Bad ass movie. Very creepy. I'm going to have to watch it again. It's hard to read subtitles late at night. Anyhoo, I was able to get some doodles in. Enjoy!

I have no idea why these scan pink. It's a love hate hate relationship with my computer.

Sketchin is DA BOOMMMB

Hi all!

Ok this is the last time I'm going to apologize for not posting in a long long time. I'm just going to post when I can and as of right now, I can. I think I've apologized the past 5 posts and barely any of them had some actual art work in it.

Let's just say I've been pretty busy and a lot of great things have happened since then. From my last post, you know of the new addition to the family and she's been a blessing. I'm pretty happy at the moment but I am trying to bust my ass and get a move on with something I can call a "career". So if I'm away from this thing it's hopefully because I'm building towards a better professional future.

So here's a sketch I did at work. I used to post sketches I did at work al the time but not so much anymore...hopefully I can get back into posting more art and ranting less. It IS a after all, a sketch blog. ENJOY!
