The Judge.


 

The Judge. Toward the end of Cormac McCarthy’s Blood Meridian The Kid dreams of The Judge and this is my extension of that otherworldly counterpart to his mortal presence. I didn’t like the character when I first read it because it just seemed like a hollow definition through contrasting bullet points that didn’t actually add up to a character, just attempted to appeared to. He is large - but dainty, he is exceptionally intelligent - but very brutal, he is nude a lot - but hairless, and he might be a Dæmon. It just felt like someone making a D&D character to be the ultimate genius badass then not role playing it well because the character was just a series of interesting sounding stats and not a character. But on my second and third reading of the book I felt less strongly about this, I don’t think my opinion on it changed, but it stood out less than my first read. It is my favorite Cormac McCarthy novel, so I was thinking about it a fair amount.

Klon Centaur Overdrive


 

I made a Klon Centaur from the General Guitar Gadgets kit, it wasn’t the hardest wiring I’ve done, but it was the most wiring. It had a high pitched whining when I first tried it and found it was the voltage regulator IC, so I ordered 3 of the suggested replacements from Mouser and they all work fine but I left in the balla ass 3 dollar one. It sounds great, but at the moment I have a hair’s width preference for the modified 808 I made.

The Lighthouse, double again


 

I don’t know how many times I drew this lighthouse when all the coffee shop lobbies were closed, but this was the last one and I was quite fatigued of it.

Girlface x Mirror


I saw this picture and really liked it so I downloaded it to my desktop personal computer then transferred it via Universal Serial Bus flash memory drive onto my laptop computer where it sat for years until later I opened it in Photoshop Creative Suite 5 and created a New Document along side it and proceeded to observe the original photograph while painting my own version with the Photoshop Brush Tool using brushes I made using the Brush Preset Creation Tool. I’ve been doing a series of photoshop paintings without doing a pencil sketch first just to see what it is like, it is fine.

Screaming Bear 808


Screaming Bear 808 I made from the modified GGG kit. He pointed out that it is the botique circuit but at a fraction of the price because it didn’t have a cool paint job so I thought I’d put that on too. This was the third design I tried for the case, the rivet in the middle was from another idea that I abandoned, and I ended up just scratching this screaming bear onto it which I like much better.

New Fuzz pedal I just made. I made the enclosure before hearing it and was delighted that it was as aggressive and gnarly as it looks.

Betty Bowen 2020


My submissions for this years Betty Bowen Award. I wrote a short essay for my artist’s statement last year, this year it’s just:

“I'm one of that strange breed that can't seem to do things normal people do because of an overwhelming preoccupation with creating art that garners mild attention.”

Space Geisha


The Space Geisha “Come now, this is the worst Space Geishing I’ve seen since Zarrthlaxx Seven. I haven’t had Space Sex this bad since I had my third penis reamputated.

I head the new Cyper Punk game lets you have as many genital combinations as you like and it reminded me of this drawing I did back in 2014 covering the subject of such bodily ambivalence. This is one of my favorite drawings of mine, I like the caught and ashamed look on the Space Geisha’s face, and that this guy couldn’t make up his mind if he wanted three penisusses or not and had it reamputated. Also he apparently has dyed his skin red.

Life drawings from 2010

Life drawings from 2010 of one of my favorite life drawing models, Zoey. She was also an artist at another school and thought it was crazy that we considered 20 minutes a long pose. I think she said they were doing 40 hour poses over a couple weeks with a live model, working on oil paintings.

BOSS HM-2 repaint

Finally Repainted the BOSS HM-2 clone I made from Aion. This is my favorite pedal. I was looking up Devil Daggers artwork to put on it when I found this fanart and scratched it into the paint then put a few clear coats over. It came from ‘onlykazisvet‘ on deviantart.

Dream Ghost

I had a dream where I was sitting in a theatre with friends when the picture shut off and lights came up and this ghost came through the screen and we thought it was part of the movie but it just kept coming toward us slowly in full light. I thought it looked like it should be screaming or something but everything was dead silent and we just watched this thing approach dumbfounded. Then I tried to yell but no sound came out, then I woke up.

Red and the Wolfe sale ending

Last days for the sale on Red and the Wolfe on ComiXology! It will end as March will end, as so many things must end, but who can afford a goodbye said in sweet friendship, or terrible anger, to what harmed us that we held so close?

To Diminish into the Distance

I was re-reading though my Charles Sovek book from my Tone Colour and Composition course with Geraldine Kovats and was thinking about something receding into the distance increasing in value or decreasing. So as the squares get smaller and look further away they decrease in saturation and the difference in value between the light and dark side diminishes, one getting lighter and one darker. I was just curious how it would look, it’s all relative though, something 10 miles away might appear as a brighter red than something 10 feet in front of you.

Baseball King

I call this picture “Baseball king -or- Dost thou even wear garb proclaiming the heraldry of the local gang of sporting men!?”

Red and the Wolfe Process

An example of how I worked on Red and the Wolfe. I did the entire story through beginning to end as a rough script in ballpoint pen, then I rewrote and edited the whole thing beginning to end laying out how I wanted the panels in pencil, then I edited it again beginning to end doing the final painting in photoshop. It took five years working on it every day as the starbucks employees can tell you, and it is still on sale this month on ComiXology!
