New TMNT comics IDW



I like the covers for the new releases but the overall comic should have been in black and white. Even though the new style is nice they did a pretty sloppy job on the coloring. But its still a good relic to collect .

Re-Animation



With the new year on its way I think its time to start the ReAnimation process. Heres a new design front for my portfolio webpage. As a start, my plans are going as mostly planned for establishing myself as an artist and illustrator. Forget all those tips and columns they fed you in school, success in this field is based on an individual basis. Plus theres no short-cut, I won't let myself be intimidated.


I've managed to get all my school loans under control. I am currently still working in the retail business but its nothing new, as long as I show up and do my 8-9 hrs I'm good.


My studio is almost complete, I bought a nice somewhat used metal desk for only like $2.00 to do my small drawings and illustrations. And a few trips to homedepot got me some nice pieces of lumber for a large 4x8 feet x 1 inch drawing board and 3x2 for a diesel easel all under $100.


Aside from the art auction i did back in september which brought in $150, I've been slowly bringing my graphic novel to the surface. The important thing is i keep practicing and evolving my skillz. And to keep sharp, with new material.

Dark Knight Rises





I was not expecting this trailer to be out till next year with all the hype going on. Overall i was pleased with the footage but very dissappointed with the trailer composition. Compared to Batman Begins and The Dark Knight trailers this one kinda sucks. I'm also curious to see Anne Hatteway as Catwoman, I think i would have casted someone a little older not to say she is not a good actress . That would be my only critism of Christopher Nolan's triogy. I feel that the age should be somewhat equal between the main actor & actress to establish a balanced level of gender authority.

Sense of Irony






Throughout human history we have been dependent on machines to survive. Fate it seems, is not without a sense of irony.



The recent snow storm brought about alot of unexpected chaos. I was out of power for about four days, luckily we still had running water and hot water for showers. But man it was cold, i slept in the basement where is was warmer and getting out the blankets was alot harder.


I think all in all it was a pretty good learning experience, the media is always feeding us crap information on how to be prepared and things you would need. But none of that mattered, no one was prepared for this. And theres still plenty of folks without power. Big thanks to the Work Force from the other states who came to restore power.

ArtLeage Live Paint Auction








I Just got back from the live paint event held by West Hartford Art League. These are 2 of 3 paintings i did, the third did not get it because they assumed that every artist would only do one piece and didnt have space.Anyway the tall skinny one got sold for $50. And the big one was still in the line up when I left. Overall it was pretty fun, the food was great and because i worked flat on the grass many many people came by and took a look at my process. It fell like street art and even little kids came by and asked a billion questions.
