Meeting Don Ed Hardy

I recently had the chance to meet one of my idols and to hang out with some incredible artists in San Francisco this past week. The event entitled "Duo Mysto" was centered on the very super awesome work of Don Ed Hardy and Ron Nagle. Hardy is a great artist and pioneer of tattooing who incorporated Japanese elements and dragon imagery into his work. Not only is his work inspiring and beautiful to see in person, he is a really really really nice guy!

We had a chance to talk a bit and be nerdy fanboys with him, Ron Nagle and one of the most incredible artists on the face of the planet, Hung Liu! We had alot of fun and here are few pictures from the event.

See the link below for their work..

On Tha Picture Plane

I had the chance to work alongside some really awesome artists and all-around cool people at Picture Plane Imaging in LA this past month. Not only did I learn a bunch of new things, but I had a blast while I was doing it! Many thanks to Art and John for bringing me aboard. If you get a chance check out the work of some of my colleagues.....

APE 08 Wrap Up.....

Shoot I've been meaning to post a few pix from APE '08 in SF but was just way too busy this past month. The convention itself is one of my favorites and believe it or not, Sunday was the best day and perhaps one of the most fun I've ever had at a convention! Very cool crowd despite the weather plus we had a great time talking to everyone and seeing old friends from past cons. As usual many thanks to Uncle D an' Hilford for all their help @ the booth. Wish I had a chance to buy more stuff but we were pretty dang busy, which is always a good thing! Next stop Wondercon '09 in February!

Nerd Excursions

Being the huge goober that I am, I recently had the chance to visit Cartoon Colour Company Inc. in Culver City while I was working near there. Ever since my college days I had been ordering Ingram punched animation paper from them and still draw nearly everything on it to this day.

The place itself is pretty run down and dusty. When you go inside there is nothing but a small waiting room with a squeeky chair to sit on. Across from there is a glass cabinet with cells from shows like "Fat Albert" and "Charlie Brown". When I bought my paper, they said that only 2 people usually do walk-in orders, an animator from "Fat Albert" and an older woman who used to work for Disney. Pretty ol' schoo company to be included in!

However it was still very awesome for me, those guys have been around since 1947 and I hope they will stick around for many more although according to 1 of the 3 employees working there, times have been rough especially with another possible actor's strike looming. I think it sucks when places and things that you love start to disappear, whether they go on for many more years or not they will always be a part of what made me excited to get into the world of art and animation.

Hey buy something from them if you get a chance and support a legendary company while you still can!

"Johhny Sokko Giant Robo" A.P.E '08 Printprint

This print I designed for the A.P.E. features Johnny Sokko and his Giant Robot which is one of my favorite live action "Tokusatsu" shows of all time! Special nerd props go out to the 2 guys at the con in SF who actually knew who the hell the characters were in my print! (I salute you fellow nerds)

There is still a limited amount of these prints available from November 08's Alternative Press Expo. Contact me or go to the site store if you'd like to get one while they're still around!

Watch(WO)men Added

Silk Spectre of the Watchmen is finally finished. She's been sitting in a stack of papers near my desk since July alongside Nite Owl and I have been meaning to complete the group. So now at long last, she is here! Hopefully I will be able to add a completed Nite Owl next week and move on to some other cool stuff.

That outfit is sooooo frickin' 80's it made me feel like I was creating a Club Time Barbie ad or something, really had to play up those skulls a little bit more to snap me out of it! Well anyways, hope you like!

Master Blaster @ Shoreline!!!

Had the chance to finally see the living legend, Stevie Wonder at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountainview this past week. I waited years until he went back on tour and was sooo glad I got the chance to see him. A truly awesome performance, the vocals were incredible and the band was completely on point. My fav unexpected moment was a cover of the Stylistics hit "People Make the World Go Round", a la Roger Troutman vocal effects and synthesizer. Nothing more inspiring than great music by a great artist! Stevie is God!!!

Me an' Da VIZ

I have been having a great time working with the folks at VIZ Media for the past month. VIZ is a company located in SF specializing in any and all things Anime as well as Manga. Tons of inspiring art on hand as well as anything you can imagine from the worlds of Japanese Anime and Manga (cool toys, tiny trinkets, etc.). I had a blast working there this month and hope to do it again in the near future. All in all it's been a cool run for me, looking forward to July and the stretch run to Comic-con!

Nerd Milestones

Just received the Spring Comic-con magazine in the mail today and there we are listed in the small press section! Jusscope.com will be an exhibitor in the small press area for the 2008 Comic-con in San Diego, it's O-FISH-OWL!! It's my first time behind the table at the biggest comic convention there is, I am pretty stoked about it. I've been there the past few years as a fan and knew the process of getting in was a bit of a wait. Can't wait to get down there in July!
