Playing with Whites

A Whites Treefrog, is the centerpiece for this experimental medium study. Recently I'm trying to take advantage of multiple materials and make them all work together, see where I can take my style.

Grow and Die

The Illustration Friday Site has a "Grow" topic going on and this brand new 4"x6" watercolor/ink hybrid is a good candidate. (Picture translation) "While reading and growing, you are also slowly approaching death." Nice.

IF: Extremes Submission

Abstract Expression and the feeling of extremes in a sexual nature might sum up this painting. I tried to capture the natural aggressive tension promoted with the act, coupled with the peaceful serene bliss afterwards (light whimsical blues). On a side note, this painting came from a breakup period, so yeah..

SR, Self, Xenotrope, and B-B-B TORRES!!!

Some sketches of Spartacus Rigsby sleeping after he hurt himself trying to get down from the attic, some bears, and myself in the mirror at 8:30am wondering when sleepy time will bitch slap me.
And Ben Torres, fooling around with Reason on the computer. Friends beware! I'm going to keep you busy when you visit, so I can draw your pretty faces!

Yeah! Rediscovered Self-made Comic Books!

I got a call from my mom today informing me that she found all my comic books that I made when I was 12-16! What a great find! Issues of Scottra, Pope "the inner fury", Nitro, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, G&E Power, Aliens with an Attitude, Ninja, Mr. Cavitee, Black Thunder, Mr. Tree, Pulsar, and Masterman. Some self made price guides, 2 old sketchbooks, and a rpg were included as well. It was cool running into hardcover, die-cut and aluminum foil covers again!

Isiah Thomas: America's lovable Sexist and Racist Asshole.

So I'm watching television at a hotel room in Tampa and this story came up about Isiah Thomas, Heres a quote..

Asked if he was bothered by a black man calling a black female “bitch,” Thomas said: “Not as much. I’m sorry to say, I do make a distinction.” A white male calling a black female a bitch is highly offensive,” Thomas said. “That would have violated my code of conduct.”

“Maybe I shouldn’t go there. … A white male calling a black female, that is wrong with me. I’m not taking that. I’m not accepting that. … That’s a problem for me.”

So this is retarded, and America's new asshole deserves to have that label tied to him.
