This is my initial sketch with a brush and inkwash for the "I Draw Your Shit" Moebius tribute over on the electric ant zine site, for the final version I did in water color go check it out, and also there is a ton of amazing artists who contributed, each doing their take on a card originally drawn by the legendary artist who recently passed. Go take a look at these cause they are all top notch, and thanks to Mr. Ryan Sands for organizing the whole thing!

So I did this picture using Owen Gieni's loose pencils he so generously provided on the Rob Liefeld message board (Right here) The Avengelyne comic relaunched last year and kicked off the Extreme studios thing that's going on with Prophet, Glory, Bloodstrike and of course Youngblood. It's a beautiful comic, Gieni has got some crazy details in his pictures. I inked over a print out of his art, then painted watercolors over that, and touched it up with more ink and a black micron pen.
Oh yeah, you wanna read the whole thing go check it out http://avengelyne.keenspot.com/
That's not a pirates secret stash of Avengelyne comics, that's the straight up thing, legal, legit and an incredibly awesome move by the creators.

the weekly sketch challenge at Ten Ton Studios was Adventure Time! this week, though to be honest I've been feeling all lame and not so super ever since I heard that Moebius died. Not really sure how to say whatever I'm thinking. I never met him, only owned a couple of his books, but that was enough to mark me and to keep me always thinking of his art and the places it can take us.
The rest of the Ten Ton Studios entries.

The weekly Ten Ton Studios sketch challenge is mash-up some movies. I wasn't quite sure what to do, then saw this guy named Nick Marino making mash-up jokes on the twitter, and one of them was Bill & Ted and Bert & Ernie, and he encouraged me to do it, and now we have this here, for better or worse.
But really, Nick is an awesome guy, he does a comic called Super Haters and does podcasts and has a sick obsession with... comic books. Go check him out and read some of his comics free on the INTERNET! http://www.nickmarino.net/

I will have a table here and being doing free sketches and have a box of mini-comics I have made, from my all ages stuff like Dinosaur Mystery Comics and Esther Egg to the definately not for kids Zombi bin Laden and some new stuff I'm still working on. I will also have some original framed paintings of different characters, Spider-Man, Daredevil and a few others. If you live in or near Buffalo come check it out and pick up some great books! http://www.buffalosmallpress.org/
Also I am going to do illustrated interviews with other cartoonists and writers and creative types. If any of you ever saw the interview with Paul Pope that he illustrated back in the early nineties in Advance Comics then you'll know what I'm talking about. If, more than likely, you never saw that, well it was really cool, made comics alive for me and showed what comics could be. Too often you say comics and people just think superheros or garfield, and while I have nothing against either of those things, comics are so much more than that.
