A few weeks ago my Uncle Buddy died. He had struggled with cancer for a long, long time. Finally it took him. The later years of his life he stayed away from our family, so we wouldn't see him that way. Some of my family doesn't understand that. But I do. He was known for being smart, and business savvy. He worked his tail off. I remember as a kid how he actually had a small room in his and my Aunt Bettie's house, that was nothing but Matchbox cars. There was shelves of them everywhere. He was a cool guy, and I looked up to him (I'm blessed with many great role models, in my family.). I wanted to be a self made man like him. So where ever he is, I hope he knows he left a great influence on me . Along with many others.

These are some pictures, from a few new toys I've been painting.

This was done for a friend for Christmas. It's the former chairman of WCW, La Parka.
Drew this at work, when I should have been working.

These are some Christmas cards I finished this weekend.

This is from this last weeks art challenge. It was to put a actor/actress/movie character into a movie they were not in. I choose Greedo from Star Wars, and put him driving Miss Daisy. It was an excuse to draw somebody from my favorite movie. I'll let you guess which one.
Also here is the link to this and last years "wonderful" 24 hour comic jams. If you are easily offended, I suggest not looking. Other wise enjoy.

This is the final of my Cage Fighting series. I originally wanted to do a picture of a fighter locking in an armbar. But in the end I went with the triangle choke. It's one of my favorite submissions. It's just so pretty.
This is the black and white picture of Poison Ivy. I'm planning to hit her up with some marker and color pencil love soon.

This was for last Sundays art challenge. It's Elvis Vs. something in the badlands of Vegas.

Now that I have a beard, I feel that all my skull drawings should have one to.

Batgirl...IN COLOR. She's my girl!!

UMMMMMM, Batgirl.
This is a postal sticker all jacked up with marker and color pencil. Just fun stuff!

The third of my cage fighter pictures, I wanted to do one about women fighters. The UFC doesn't want to promote female fighters, for who knows what reason. I personally think this is foolish. These girls have great fights normally outclassing the male fighters. They're speed,and attention to technique should be applauded. It's a shame they don't get more respect.

Playing with a red sharpie on a new t-shirt design.
A gas mask sketch.

I bought some junk dollar highlighters at the store about a week ago. I've been playing with them and a precision pen in my sketchbook lately.

Another highlighter and pen sketch.

Wow, a over inked skull-guy drawn by me. Who would have guessed??

Vikings are cool, nuff said!

Red Sharpie bouncer.

Just playing again. I like the emo-ish statement.

I went to the local Art Museum about two weeks ago. Just did a few quick brush sketches. This is one of them.

big hand red Sharpie Abe Lincoln....sorta.

Another of the museum sketches.

I saw this guy in a crummy little hick bar over the summer. The bottom picture on the left I drew to remember what he looked like. The larger picture I sketched the other day from that.

A small painting I did for fun.

The two cage fighting pictures are from a set of four, I'm working on for promotional work. Since I'm a martial artist, along with a visual one. This was a good way to show both of my loves. I'll be the first to state I have never been in a cage fight. But I am planning to be in one, hopefully in the next year. I'm not doing it to pretend that I'm some kind of bad ass or something. I'm doing it to test my skills, and to express my self through a combative sport. Oddly, the only thing I can compare it to is like having a gallery show. You work so hard on your art, then you naturally want the world to see it. Then again maybe that's just me..

Casper vs. cthulhu
Well we're about a week away from Mid-Ohio con which I will be attending. I was a bit shaky as to whether I was going to be able to go or not. But I guess luck has shined my way. I'll be sharing a table with Doug Meyer, and Mike maydak. The drawings I have above are from an email art challenge I am involved in. Their is a group of us who draw something based on whatever challenge is given to us the Sunday before. its a blast seeing how each of us approach the subject matter. By the way, when your done reading this blog. Go check out my homie and fellow artist Paul Jurczak's blog
