more stuff that never got posted from past projects... [Feb. 25th, 2010|07:40 pm]
a little known fact about owning a pet hedgehog is that they poop while running in their wheel. then they keep running. the result of this is something that has cutely been termed "poop boots"  it actually is weirdly endearing while gross at the same time.


and here is an illo i did for razorcake magazine of goth kids at a club. i like how i draw a group of goth kids at a club and almost everyone is smiling. way to go! chins up guys!

over the past year i have been trying to make as varied a variety of work as i can. i'm trying to build broader appeal as an illustrator. i can't tell if it's working or not.

more tommorrow dudes!

here are a couple uncle mat illos i like that never got posted here. [Feb. 24th, 2010|06:23 pm]
i'm trying to rvive my lj a little at a time.
:)
...everyone in san antonio seems to be rockabilly these days...so i tried to make that one look "local".
this next one was for a column that was as ridiculous as the drawing implies...

so older guy wrote in and said he liked watching executions online and he didn't know why, and also he kept having intercourse with men because "it was easier" and he wondered if that "made him gay" sometimes you can't make this stuff up folks.

hey guys... [Feb. 23rd, 2010|10:35 pm]
as you may or may not know, i used to regularly illustrate a sex advice column for the san antonio current. i no longer will do that (due to budget cuts, and instead they will be running the same illo with every column from now on...which is one i did so that's fun.

anyway, i still get to illustrate a monthly column about being a mom in san antonio called home on the range, and here are some of them. all they wanted was for them to look different than the stuff i did for uncle mat's column so i've been playing with collage.






what do you think?

cakes and stuff. [Apr. 17th, 2009|09:57 am]
i feel like i've been baking nonstop lately.
here are some foods i have made...


i made this for my boss when he moved. i guess it's obvious which chain restaurant i work for.
it was all rainbowified inside...


these cupcakes are 2 points if you're on weight watchers.
i made them for my mom and she took them to work and people seemed to dig them.


these were for a barbeque we went to. devils food with caremel icing and fondant leaves.


this one was for my older brother's birthday. it's a dalek from dr. who. the cupcakes are for putting candles in.



the baking was easy on this guy. i made his body buy baking boxed cake mix in a small oven safe batter bowl and his head is and upsidedown cupcake glued on with icing. the fondant and edible paint took forever though. plus i don't watch dr. who so i had to keep running to my computer to see what the robot looked like constantly.

oh yeah. maybe i'll post actual art later, huh?

secret shame. [Mar. 15th, 2009|09:52 pm]
i hadn't gone on a lot of my former internet time wasters in awhile and spring break made me want to so i got back into internet scrabble
and stardolls. internet scrabble is self explanatory...you go to http://www.isc.ro and downloaded it and play all the time. it pretty much rules. what's really retarded is mitch and i will sit on our computers in the same room and play each other sometimes instead of juust physically playing real scrabble.

yes internet scrabble is dorky, but it doesn't make me all that embarrassed to own up to. stardoll, however,eghh....
ok. it's paper dolls you play with on the internet of celebrities and stuff. which seemed fine when it first started and it was mentioned in jane magazine, but i hadn't been on in awhile and my login name expired because now you have to be UNDER 18 to even play with it. i guess to keep perverts off. plus you can have a paid membership now, which i wouldn't do anyway, because all it means is you can "buy" clothes for your avatar and play with dolls the unpaid kids can't play with. HAHA SCAM. i don't even care. i resigned up with a fake birthday and play with dolls all day for free. hells yes.

freddy mercury anyone?

oh yeah. i'm a dork.
