Almost everybody can look at abstract everyday things like clouds and wood grain and see things like dragons, monsters, cartoon characters, but it’s not every day that you see something like this:
When I saw this, I blurted out to my friends, “Is it just me, or does the stain on that cabinet look like Snoopy, ya know, getting a blowjob?” They all turned around and pretty much agreed with me while cracking up laughing and saying it was the most random thing they’ve ever heard. I can’t help it if I’m super random and thinking about those kinds of things all the time. Oh, and I’m sorry if this illustration ruins part of your childhood (This illustration might not be safe for work, errr, your childhood, so click on the black-bar thumbnail to view the full-sized image in all its… glory):
This is what I saw on that cabinet and I knew I had to illustrate it. I think I will start looking for art everywhere I go in everything I see, like cabinets, dirt, clouds, and when I’m taking a break from doing work staring at the ceiling… maybe you should, too.
A new comic strip is up! <-That's a link right there... it's a comic strip introducing Bomb-head finally, and it's also sort of relevant and metaphorical to me not being all that present and calm lately with all that's going on. My mind has been taking over lately. Anyway, the comic strip is pretty experimental, in that it's like those Android and iPhone/iPad comic apps where you can tap the screen or swipe the screen to advance and zoom in and the frame letterboxes around the current panel you're reading... it's what I've been wanting Bootleg - the interactive comic strip - to be all these years... I've experimented several times before, and this one is just as different, but much more simplified, and I’ve started using my tablet to draw the comics instead of using the line tool. I think it’s a good new illustration style that I’ll only get better at with time. I feel pretty accomplished, considering the coding of this flash document took me over 3 hours to do, and the illustrations took a few hours as well… over the course of the past 2 weeks. Anyway, it’s finally up, and I hope you like it. Anybody who knows where Bomb-head went after this knows more than I do… ::shrugs::
I’m working hard on getting a new comic strip up soon, but the coding and animation took just as long as the illustrations are taking me. I’m almost done, though. It’s going to be experimental and interactive – more so than any of my other comics. I know it’s lame to update my blog with a post about NOT updating, but whatever. I’m hoping to have it done and posted some night this week. It’s going to introduce some sort of storyline, a new character, and a general direction for where I’m taking the comic strip…
This isn’t gonna make much sense, but…
What, if any, sound effect would a comic strip character make when he jumps out of a piece of paper into the real world?
(I’m looking for the sound effect word here, not just a description)
i LOVE tacos! Seriously, homemade tacos are the best. They cure any bad mood or craving for good food. Go make some. Anyway, i also Love Leather… mmmm hot! i Love a bunch of other stuff, like wolves, my bed, blankets and covers, so check out the Flash document and see what else i Love… Make sure to check what version of Flash you have on your computer, because sometimes it fails when stupid companies update their OS and have a thing against Adobe for whatever reason… ::cough:: Apple/Mac ::cough::
