Bad Hulk…

Just a quick nonsense doodle for Monday morning…

A Different Kind of Art

Deviating from the visual arts today, I thought I’d share a picture of my toys with which I engage in the art of music. In this case, it’s only a hobby and not a vocation, but it’s something that provides a lot of personal enjoyment while still being creative.

These are all USA made Hamer guitars. I tried to get different styles of guitars to cover different styles of music, so I’m pretty much done acquiring guitars (to the relief of my wife, whom I still owe a new kitchen floor).

From left to right: 2000 Hamer Newport, 1994 Hamer T-51, and 1989 Hamer Californian (the only one of the three I purchased new).

 

The thing is, one can only sit and draw/paint for so long before getting restless. When those moments of restlessness hit, I crank on an amp, pick up one of these fiddles and, if no one is home, proceed to shake the walls. Although, with the hollow body on the left, it’s great for jazz tones, so I’m enjoying trying to play quietly on the little Musicmaster Bass amp. It’s different, but a nice change of pace.

I suppose I could have found something else to distract me when I get restless, but for now this is it. (I actually have a 2009 EVH Wolfgang sitting in its case in a corner out of frame, but I’m selling that, so I didn’t bother including it in this photo of my Hamer trifecta).

So what do you do when you’ve sat at your drawing board, easel, or computer/Cintiq for too long and get restless?

May the 4th Be With You!

My wife told me it was “May the 4th be with you” day (well, because it is May 4th), and since saying it sounds like one has a lisp, I thought it would be appropriate to have Sylvester issuing the greeting.

War Of The Rocketmen

Here’s a character design illustration for Schuyler “Sky” King, lead character of the War Of The Rocketmen project. I was asked to follow a certain retro style, so I looked to the Fleischer Superman for inspiration for this particular layout.

More Storyboard Samples

I did these some time ago, but for those who haven’t seen them, here is a short sequence from an animated short I storyboarded called, “The Piñata”.

Storyboard Sample

Quite a few years ago, Doug McHenry, the director/producer of the film, New Jack City, commissioned me to do storyboards for New Jack City 2. These are one a few of the handful I rendered just to give you an idea of the kinds of storyboards I did for this project. These were never meant for public consumption, so it’s not finished artwork. It’s only a rough concept of the story to show how the shots work out. NewJackCity2

A bit of dark humor, I suppose.
