Christmas 2016

This year I asked my nieces and nephews what sea creatures they would want to be, and this is the result.

Holiday Tidings from the Manguine

Merry Christmas from the Man-eating Manguine!

Wednesday, December 21, 2016


Made another entry into my line of 'comBATS.' This one is no longer suited to hitting balls, unless it is other people/animal's biological balls meaning testicles. But don't do that, it's a cruel and ungentlemanly way to fight. Course I've seen a lot of inexperienced flail and nunchaku users hit their own. Can I use a flail or nunchakus? Just ask anyone I've fought with them. You can't. Dead.

street ballerina

A street ballerina, I really like photography of street ballerinas/dancers/gymnasts. This is actually the same picture I drew from last year for inktober, but THIS time I didn't draw her ballerina parts.

Lady of the Louvre

This is some lady entombed in marble in france that I drew. You can visit her at the louvre in paris, but make a reservation as, though dead, she has many suitors.

Red and the Wolfe Chapter 09 is released!

Chapter 09 is finally out! It took a long time, in fact, I've already submitted and received approval on the final chapter of the book, 10! It is one little book in a big sea of comics/graphic novels/manga on comixology. But of all the comics, graphic novels, and manga I've seen, I've never seen anything that quite looks like Red, so I feel pretty good about that.

Dr. Fiona Katsubana's shower

Dr. Fiona Katsubana takes a caustic shower dissolving her flesh to prove her hypothesis that her soul can remain living in her animated skeleton. Just finished my second book of developing this God Labs idea, this is the last page of Black Book II. I was originally going to work on a biblical story that wasn’t so dark, but I kept coming back to this idea of a nuclear laboratory and scientists trying to make a gate to heaven and it just started to grow in my brain mush. I could really feel it push out my thinking about Red and the Wolfe and take over, and I was like ‘oh boy, this is a grim story.’

Uncanny Valley fanart

My fanart of Eve from Uncanny Valley, which I recommend to all those looking for a psychological pixel art horror game about being a security guard in a mysteriously abandoned human robotics laboratory!

The Black Books

I made these Black Books out of the pile of super ink absorbing plotter paper my dad brought me from when he was printing plotting things. I've been developing my tentatively titled 'God Labs™' in them. I feel like they look ominous and consistent with the world I've been drawing, so when I see the books and look through them it all feels so nice and uniform and warm and I evaporate into love.

Wednesday, November 9, 2016


Spent two and a half hours today at Barnes and Nobel looking through art books/ graphic novels/ comics/ and manga. I saw one called ‘All You Need is Kill’ and I said in my head “if this is $10 I’m getting it” and it was $14. So I got it, mostly because of the title, but also because it looks to be the manga version of live die repeat, and I did not know that existed. The title reminds me of ‘Blood Lad’, which my friend kept trying to tell me was good, but I never heard him because I was laughing too hard at the title and the image it conjured of a small boy made from a thin condom like membrane of skin overfilled with blood. So naturally I assumed the story was about him constantly in peril of being popped and the Lad loosing all his blood.

Junji Ito's GYO

I got and read Junji Ito's Gyo. I didn't really get it, the writing was extremely dry to my ear. For example, this character's only real defining characteristic is that she is really upset about smells and is incessantly complaining about them through the entire book. And I was all, lets give you a big smile, because without a strange smile on your face your character is thinner than the paper you're printed on.

Dr. Katsubana's God Labs ID and clearance card

"Dr. Fiona Katsubana, a leading expert in persistence-of-soul research, demonstrated the validity of her hypotheses by dissolving the flesh from her mortal body. She lives on as an animated skeleton often experimenting on herself to scientifically deduce why she yet lives."

Some projects

Non drawing things: I took the talisman out of my katana's handle then carved a space for it in a wooden sword I made and epoxied it in. Made new clamping faces for my vice which now it looks too nice to use. Fashioned a clever apparatus that looks like a baseball bat is sticking out of my ceiling. been experimenting with different shades for bare ceramic light bulb fixtures. I don't really like any of them yet, except the one that is all cut up, which I cut up because I didn't like it. Also the wooden one has some of that pink salt blocks glued to the bottom of it. Put a chandelier in my garage. Remade my kitchen light, cut some of the glass off the bottom then painted it black and distressed it. also Fall, also this van gogh smoking skeleton poster fluoresces nicely under black light.

another marry worth, or, no this is sally forth

I always call this strip marry worth in my head, is that a different comic strip?

inktober! The God Labs reactors

Inktober! It hardly counts as I'm working in ink right now so it's not really a challenge to inktober because I ink all over the place. This page was an experiment though because I was mixing inks and soaking the filler material of used up Faber-Castell PITT pens (which are expensive, 5 money a pen and they run out fast) to reactivate them and it seems to have worked! One of the dangers here is that they can mold which I've had happen with water brush pens I filled with ink.

inktober! studies

Inktober! These are some drawings I did from the s.t.a.l.k.e.r. concept art, and one of a RBMK nuclear reactor refueling crane. I'm experimenting with using inks for the next story I've been working on, and I've been doing a lot of research on nuclear reactors and labs and such. I did want to be a nuclear physicist before I pursued art, so in a lot of ways I'm fulfilling my dream!

inktober 2016! hentiober!

Inktober! A friend informed me this is from a fanservice anime, which is ironic, because in the reference image I used she is covering her boob, but I drew her nipple because I didn’t want to draw her hand!

Inktober sketchbook page

INKTOBER but not anime, this is what I've been working on after finishing Red. Some kind of story about a laboratory and doing experiments to get into heaven and nuclear reactors and killing people to see where their souls go and abominations show up and weird tall mutilated guys with guns named Romulus and Remus, some kind of thing like that.

Inktober 08! Aninkober!

Inktober! I felt like in school our professors were slightly dismissive of anime. I think they wanted us to focus on fundamentals and less on anime stylization, but I've been looking up manga drawing guides and it is really technical in ways I didn't expect. I'm no stranger to anime, but I wanted to draw in this style this october because it is antipathetic to the way I usually draw and I think that's interesting. Also I'm trying to be more cute, just, personally...

animektober! octobermek! inkmetober! Bottom line is anime-october-ink, that's the theme I choose anyway. Sorry it's not a picture of a cat farting...

Inktober 2016!

Inktober 2016! I was going to also try to make it 80sanimetober because I've been looking into a lot of that recently. This paper was weird to use, it's plotter paper my dad brought me from weyerhaeuser that has a super ink absorbent coating on one side. I use it a lot with ball point pens, but with a nib and ink it was sucking the ink out of the nib like some kind of greedy ink sucking absorber. Anyway that's why the lines are so gluttonous.

Editing Chapter 10, the Zealot

Today was dedicated to amusing myself by working on two panels of the Zealot I never really liked. I think I'm going to work on the bottom one more to make him look a little like Mike Patton from the Mr. Bungle Pink Cigarette music video

Chapter 9 cover rework

Before submitting chapter 9 I wanted to rework the cover so there was no butt in it. I don't know if there is a no butts on covers policy at comixology, but I didn't want to risk it.

Friday, September 2, 2016


Done. Started March 22 2012 - 4 years 5 months 11 days later - September 2 2016 finished the last page. Working every day, hearing "but whats your real job?" (or later "got a real job yet?"), through hurting hands and arms, relationship ups and downs, stopping smoking, beans and rice everyday, keeping the same routine for four years even though I was only working for myself. In the beginning I brought in my own tea to starbucks because I couldn't afford coffee. Also lost a lot of weight because I could only afford bread, peanut butter, potatoes, and beans and rice. I started with a sheet of copy paper and a ball point pen and the thought "well no one is waiting for me to make this so I may as well start." Is it good? I don't know, but it's rich with meaning to me. Meaning I have been quick to regale many a listener with, if they cared to hear it.

Red the Cruel Lass with a Cutlass

Spoiler Alert: Red becomes a pirate, terror of the British on the Ivory Coast. They call her: Red, the Cruel Lass with a Cutlass. Heh heh heh.

Samson and Delilah

With Red's ending in sight I've been thinking of about 4 other stories to develop. One I want to do is the biblical story of Samson and Delilah, and while drawing an unrelated picture of this catgirl I decided to incorporate it into my Samson and Delilah idea! "Samson wisely deduced that these villain Philistines would never fire on the lone catgirl they had working in the establishment." And then I thought I'd probably make Delilah a catgirl.

The Crown Princess

"Like most things on the Royal Menu, The Crown Princess yet again had to be bullied, coerced, and physically threatened into trying an item that would soon become her preferred morsel and future source of overindulgence."

Red's dream

In the end I have Red dream about my original more violent ending to the story. Except when I was working on it I decided water would come out when the woodsmen cuts the wolfe's throat, because you know, the bible. And I was just less interested in the gore, and have grown into a more nuanced desire in what I want to depict.

Editing Chapter 08!

I like the expression I captured on Gigglehorn's face in this panel. I also like that he is holding Churlish Joe's hand.
