New Years Resolution Numero Uno.

We’re going to split this down into different posts so I can focus on my intentions for each. Do I know how many there will be? Nope. I honestly haven’t given it much thought, so I’ll blog about them as I come up with them. That’s just how I roll. Speaking of roll, I could really go for some sushi.

Maybe New Years Resolution Numbero Uno should be stop getting distra-


Or blog more. I’m sorry. I’m being left to my own devices. Which means eating a lot of sugar. Let’s see if we can get this post back on track. Where was I.

Resolution: MAKE MORE ART.

So I continually make up excuses for why I don’t draw anymore. I’m too busy. My room needs to be cleaned. There’s too much to do. The cat stole my eraser. It’s endless. So what I’ve finally realized is that if I want to draw, I’m going to just have to do it and to hell with all the other responsibilities I have. Is this responsible? Maybe not but it sure will make me happier, right? Right.

So this is my first New Years resolution (better late than never huh?): MAKE MORE ART. So check out my deviantart page and feel free to kick me in the butt and tell me to update it more often. I don’t need an eraser, right? The cat can have it.

So, even if it’s just one small doodle a day, I’m going to start making a conscious effort to get more art finished and out the door. I’m sure the thousands of people I owe art to will appreciate this. Again… better late than never, right?


Art Post: Don’t Stop Believing

I’ve still been working on the comic even though I haven’t been posting it online. Yesterday I started my first sort-of color test on an illustration I did before beginning the comic, and today I finished it. I actually really like how it turned out so I figured I’d post it to give you a preview of what the comics will look like when finished.


Ash wants to play the drums, and I’m a somewhat horrible guitar player (the guitar is based on my own, so it actually turned out better than the drum set did). Hopefully I’ll be able to get a few more illustrations churned out soon. It definitely makes me feel like an artist again. So what do you think?

Tonight I Walked With Dinosaurs

Tonight, I experienced the most amazing, most awe-inspiring, most beautiful journey I have ever had. Tonight, I walked with REAL, LIFE-SIZED DINOSAURS and spent it all with my girlfriend who made it possible. I cannot begin to describe to you the fulfillment of one of my longest-held dreams. If you ever get a chance, go see Walking with Dinosaurs. It is the best experience, hands-down that I have EVER had in my entire life. It is something I will never ever forget.

I’m going to try and post some videos I took later tonight, but for now, have a picture (from the website – my pictures are all dark since they were taken with my camera):

Walking With Dinosaurs

You will be astounded and humbled by these beautiful giants that have come to life. I felt like I was living in James Gurney’s Dinotopia. My favorite part? The moment the Brachiosaurus walked out. My mouth dropped open, my heart felt like it was too big for my chest, and tears welled in my eyes. A 40 foot dinosaur stood above my head and blinked at me. Tonight, I had a dream come true.
