Back into the Sun!

Wow...sometimes time flies by so fast. I spent all of 2010 either travelling or preparing to travel, or cleaning my yard, or preparing to clean my yard. I went into 2011 with the same plan - but it all went haywire fast - and now I have to start everything over from scratch.

I started a new career - got my Real Estate licence - and did a few sketches to go with my web sites.
I'm looking at AZ again with fresh eyes. I've been here 14 years and did almost everything I planned to do before 2011. Now I'm putting together a new set of goals and plans and finding new excitement in being here in the Valley of the Sun!!! I hope to check in more often!

Oh, yeah, if you or someone you know is looking for a home here, give me a hollar, I can help you out!!

2010 - The Year I Am Laid-Back!

...yeah....been months since I collected my works and decided to post! I kinda decided to just sit back and reflect during most of 2010 --- I just pushed away from the table a bit and decided to look back at what I've done and look around at where I am at --- and just sort of breathe it in. Often I have pursued goals or chased some sort of dream I had that I felt was too distant to happen -- and yet, most have been achieved.

This time around, for 2010 I decided to let FATE and DESTINY do the steering. Reckless? Maybe...I'm not asleep at the wheel of my life, just at a point where I'm ready to lighted the grip on the wheel and see what interesting thing pops up that wasn't on my road map.

New Gals for the Fall Line

I did two (2) sketches in one (1) week --gasp! My ticker's gonna give out if I keep this up.... Actually, it's not so much sketches done as sketches actually completed, ink, colored, scanned in and posted!!!

Gooooooo JOE!!!!

Okay, I had lots of GI JOEs as a kid, I watched the animation in the 90's and loved the outrageous silly cardboard caricatures of it all. I will go see the new movie for chuckles~!!
So to celebrate, here's a re-post:

GIJOE Testifies -- Amazing how our foreign policy is based on a ludicrous cartoon from the 80's!!

DIE-jest...The Conclusion!

Yeah, okay, I've been lost in WoW for the last three months, so blogs, cartoons, work, life, and greasy snacks have been on hold!!! But now, here is the mind-dumbing final pages of DIE-jest...

Page 13 - I hate it when your read a story and the characters constantly come up with excuses NOT to do the very thing they set out to do at the start. So having seen such a wacky device and how it works, what would YOU want to see next? RIGHT! Put it on the lunatic's head!

Page 14 - heehehe!!! The revelation is entirely tuned to the audience of readers at the animation club -- people who already knew this was the truth! I didn't have to make anything up, so it's absolutely hilarious!

Page 15 - The story ends in the first panel, the rest is pap. I didn't have a good joke to finish it, which is a real bummer. Can't win 'em all, I guess.

DIE-jest continues...Rich-kun Returns!

Page 10 - Well.....big jokes take longer to set up, so sometimes ya gotta do a little exposition.... or find a way to buy time while you think something up!!! But this is what I love about stream-of-conciousness writing, the wackiest stuff comes up!

Page 11 - I like this page because now the madman has stolen the show. The hunters are now the hunted! I picked the Yamato shirt for Rich-kun because it was one of the first animes I watched and this mind-thingy was going into unexplored space. Note the WARNING before it's turned on. I love it in a story when a warning is 100% correct, but no one listens....

Page 12 - If there is any theme that universal in all the comics I draw, it's that of subjective reality or how the world perspective of different characters is so dramatically different -- leading to conflict of course. But isn't that the basis of any story? In this page, it simply take a literal form.

DIE-jest continues some more....

Page 7 - A rather weak page, I think....I just ran out of excuses for not showing Rich-kun any more.
Page 8 - Ah, yes...back in the groove...this is where I start the real madness! What's great is that having established the madness....I CAN DO ANYTHING!!!

Page 9 - This is a great page that's representative of all my comics/stories in pretty much every form. The characters confront a conflict, and just freak out!
