A New Generation of Pinup Girl!

Chicago Comic-Con 2009 is this week!

Hey cyberspacerz!! I know I haven’t been much for words lately. Life has been keeping me ultra busy both good and bad. Thus is life. A huge bump in the art road of life has been the death of my computer.

I know its THAT bad. But new parts are coming in this week. So I hope to have Photoshop fired up in no time.

With all the distractions, I totally forgot that I’m flying to Illinois this week to attend the ..Chicago Comic-Con! I just took a peek at the list of guests and this looks to be one rocking convention! The con is this weekend August 7-9th at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center. I’ll be in Artist Alley Table 3604 hanging with the really talented Joe Pekar and Kristin “Foxy” Allen. So if you are heading out there swing by and say hi. I’ll have all sorts of pinupy goodness for grabs! I will have prints for sale, sketchbooks and will be taking commissions too!

Also don’t forget to check out my Twitter for my coverage of the convention:

P.S.
Watchmen is out on DVD, and all I can say Carla Gugino as Silk Specter is the best thing that ever happened to this movie! ^_^

Yellow Mild Banana Peppers…

Hey MySpacianz,

I got some gripe today.

Yeah its that kinda blog today. I got some BEEF witha little band known as the Red Hot Chili Peppers:

I tune into the Pandora regularly and I wanted to get my groovy Chili Pepper funk on. You know how it is? I’m the kinda person that feels that one’s day deserves a themesong of sorts. Well to my dismay all i got was what I can best describe as something sedate stoner elevator muzak. Its kinda like getting a 1 Star spicey on your 4 Star Kung Pow Chicky…. yeah…. Wut DA Eff!

Mind you I’m old school. For you youngins out there back the days of grunge/surf, it was all about the Nirvana, RHCP and Soundgardens… music that makes you wanna get up and LIVE! Not “Under the Bridge”, not “Californication”, not “Desecration Smile”! Argh & Blargh!!

*calming*

Ok.

Let us pray:

God of Rock, pease give us our “Funky Monks” back so that we forget not how to get down and reach for “Higher Ground”. Teach us what it is line to be “Sir Pyscho Sexy” and help us to get us through our days (and especially nights). Delivery us from Coldplay. Amen.

Ok, I feel a little better. The hate is gone. I am calm and one with the Force again. Me and the Peppers are BBF again. Except for Flea, he drank all my rums the other night… also all my left socks are gone. And I don’t think I want them back. x_X

One Love,

MySpace Special Commission Special is still going on… read my last blog post for more info. Slots are open!

Angela Watercolors

Shiggity swass all!

So I’m still working on my watercoloring. I’m still learning, still
gaining confidence using this media. I like how it forces me to not
rely so heavily on the “undo” button, haha. *shakes fist @ Photoshop*

This is a piece I finished last night of the very lovely Angela Ryan:

Another
thing working with watercolors has forced me to do is work bigger. Most
of my illustrations are under 11×17″ size. This one is 9×12″ but it
feels like i crammed it in there. All part of the learning process i
suppose.

Peace&rum,
