"The Vinyl Frontier" trailer

A movie about vinyl toys!

Super Real

Here's the penciled splash page I did for my comic pal Jason Martin. The book is called...."SUPER REAL VS THE MOVIE INDUSTRY". I'm just one of many artists that pitched in on this book. It's going to be neat to see how everything link together.

This is the final colored page. From beginning to end, it took me about two week. I'm so slooooow. :(
Anyway, order the book! Here's some more info...

Illustration Friday: Wedding

When I think of wedding, the first thing that comes to mind is a bride... then a cake. Don't worry, I put the groom in there too. ;)

Illustration Friday: Momentum

It would be so cool to put on a jet pack and fly around. No traffic or worry about finding a parking space. Then again, if you run out of fuel in flight that would suck. ;)

Office prank

"Things to do while your co-workers on vacation..."
A friend send me an email of office pranks and I thought this one was the best.

Have a happy friday. :)

Comic stand

I went out to Bad Girls Antiques (in North Bend, WA) and got this old school comic stand. I remember checking out Spiderman or the JLA in the grocery store on this type of comic rack... and all the comic cost only 25 cents. For a buck you can pick up couple of comics and a pop. The rest of the day was all about going on a fantastic adventure with you favorite super hero. Well, I probably showing my age but those were the "good old days". The store always fill up the rack with whatever comics were shipped to them. So you would get a mix bag of comics everytime. It was so neat to discover new titles... but if you are collecting a specific book.... then you're out of luck. Anyway, back to the comic stand...

As you can see here, these are the bearings that rotate the rack. It's a bit rusty and squeaks... but a little WD-40 should fix that. I probably do a more deep cleaning with a tooth brush a little later.

The top sign is the biggest problem. The rust got into the white area and I'm not sure how to get the it out. Anything I do to rust will remove the white paint too. The good new is the lettering is uneffected so the text stands out really well. I'm looking forward to finish clearning it out and filling with comics. A little piece of childhood just came back home. :)
