I needed a blue horse for work so I used Ren & Stimpy’s Mr. Horse as a reference for this one. I love John Kricfalusi’s work and like to integrate little things from his style into my own so it was nice to try my hand at emulating one of his characters completely. Maybe Ren & Stimpy will be next?
“No sir, I don’t like it.”
I haven’t updated in quite some time so I thought I’d share a sort of commission I did for a friend, Michael Swart. He wanted a beefed up, monster of a Snarf. I feel like I’ve delivered
Kind of a Centaur/Necromancer thing happening here this time. Another in the 30 monster girl challenge.
Sorry, no naked boobs this time
Javis over at Legacy Control got me onto this idea of drawing 30 different monster girls as a good art warmup. Here’s the first.
I’m trying to keep drawing these to about an hour, so that’s why this one looks a little rough.
And yes, there are boobs…and will be more.
Something that’s really struck me hard this week is how many of us creatives balance work/life/work on creative endeavours. Many of us aren’t working on our comics/books/etc. full-time, though we’d love to be. So between keeping regular update schedules, social media and other administrative tasks required of an independent creator, how do you keep on task, keep on the map, and keep afloat?
One of the most important things for me is down-time. Down-time from the comic, from work, from worrying about anything in general. Just sketching for fun, playing a video-game, getting out on a walk, or watching a movie can recharge me. If I go too long without a break like this, I find I start to stagnate, or worse, have a bit of a mental breakdown.
What kinds of things do you do to keep the balance?
Hey! It’s my first blog post in ages and I thought I’d share some of the food I’ve created in the last while:
And so it’s time again for the end of the world. A lot of people, I mean A LOT have predicted this in the past. I don’t know what it is about this kind of thing, but people love trying to figure out when it’s going to happen. There’s that whole bible verse about not knowing the day or the time (not even Jesus knows) and yet, here we are again. For some reason, Harold Camping thinks he’s beyond all that.
This time (because he’s done this before) it was supposed to go something like this. May 21st, all Christians get “raptured” (taken to heaven) and the rest of the world gets judged. That didn’t happen. Apparently it happened “spiritually” (it was a metaphor?). Now it’s October 21st and he saying now it’s the world’s turn. Natural disasters of all kinds, the Spice Girls get back together, and then no more us, no more world. Damn that’s cheery.
That’s the part that’s always bugged me the most about this. People who’s main focus is how we’re all going to die and not how we’re all going to live. A friend of mine always put it best “Don’t be so heavenly minded that you do no earthly good” (I believe this was from a Johnny Cash song).
You know what I hope? I hope when it doesn’t happen today he realizes the error of his ways and sits back and just enjoys the rest of his life. He’s 90, he should be doing family stuff and going fly fishing or kicking back and reading a book in his favourite chair. Someone who’s lived this long shouldn’t be so obsessed with it ending for everyone else.
For the May date, instead of awaiting the end, we enjoyed a lovely spread of cheeses and wine. What do you think we should do this evening?
Sorry, I’ve been in kind of a funk with this blog lately (hence no post at all last week). I think I just need to redesign the site and reassess what I want out of it. I’ve still go lots of art, food and thoughts to share with you, I think I just need to step back for a bit.
We had some leftover pulled pork and burger from last night (sorry, no pics, I ate it too fast :p) so I decided this was to be breakfast.
I fried it all up with some onion and then dropped eggs and cheese into the mix.
The problem is, I ate it all and now I want more. Oh well.
