I painted this guy today to enter into the Capricon 29 art show in a couple of weeks. So if you like him he will be up for bid there. To meet the rules, he is a goat, holding a smores, has tents on his shirt, and the constellation Capricorn above his head. Ta-Da! I’m looking forward to what the other artists bring.
Recently I’ve caught up on a lot of movies I missed this year. From Vantage Point, (which was good but I hate that style of storytelling) to Hancock last night. And then I went to see Benjamin Button, and we are heading out for an early show of Slumdog Millionaire today. So far I can say there are reasons to miss all of them. I’m surprised that Benjamin is a best picture nominee. It’s a good movie, but is it top 5? It’s hard to distance myself from my fanboy leanings but I think even from a non fan view, Wall E and The Dark Knight are much more cinematic achievements and both of them have been nominated for more awards this season than Button. It seems the Oscars like the Television Emmys are still not ready to reward Genre media as serious competition. Well America has responded with their wallets and if people won’t go the theatre to see your movie, then do you think they are going to turn on their televisions to watch you give them an award? It would have been good for the Oscars just from a viewership standpoint to at least nominate The Dark Knight. Even the Art House Elitists would agree, this wasn’t just your mall summer movie popcorn fare. And to leave it out of contention, is wrong, especially when you have rewarded dreck like Titanic in the past.
So I think everyone knows I have a thing for videogames. One of the many casualties in this years economy was that site UGO bought Egm/1up and decided they did not need 1 a magazine and two the 1up show. For me the 1up show was a great way to get a dose of gamers, talking about games. And I can’t be happier that the guys who made that show have formed their own site and have already released there first show over at
Area 5 I’l be keeping an eye on their progress.
Syrian Flag Creature and Smiley Creature make their debut.
Smiley Creature Sold.
New Peas man right over HERE
No it’s not a Lawrence of Arabia Comic. Even if he is cool.
It’s that time of year again. Here’s our annual call for our anthology Lucky Creature Attacks. This years book is going to be a coloring book. What we are looking for are illustrations, comics, and other creativity that people will be able to color in if they choose too. The size of the images should be no larger than 6 3/8″ Wide x 10″ High and Black and White. All submissions/questions should be sent to me at firstname.lastname@example.org The deadline to submit is July 31st, 2009 with publication to happen in fall of 2009. Good luck and can’t wait to see what you come up with!
As a challenge I have decided to paint creatures using flag colors for respective countries. So far I did U.S.A. and Norway. They are up at my Etsy Store
UPDATE: Norway Sold. USA still available.
As soon as everyone wakes up we are making the long trek home. Forecast calls for rain and then Ice. Crossing my fingers that we beat the ice home. Memphis was a good bowl trip even with the games outcome. The parade was alot of fun and we saw Milk which is a very good movie, and a story I didn’t really know. The day of the game we went to the Memphis Zoo and saw the Panda’s again. They are awesome! And the game itself has more of a big time presentation then when I was there last in 1996. Now to get home!
