Hulked up.

I recently added some Hulk doodles to my Flickr gallery and I must say I was pleasantly surprised at the general reaction to them. I won't pretend I'm unaware that anything "Avengers" related gets disproportionate internet attention right now, but I was still caught off guard by the number of folks wanting to look at Hulk drawings. Thanks everyone! The Hulk is crazy fun to draw but no matter how mad I tried to make him in the doodles I kept wishing I could infuse just a little more rage into that green ass body. I may have to just keep trying.

Grickle with voices

A few weeks ago I was approached, via email, by an English language instructor at a university in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, asking permission to use "The smartest dog in the world" in a learning exercise. The students were to practice using English by providing an audible thought process to the main characters of the story. The results were both hilarious and fascinating to me!

Here's a playlist with all the variations on Youtube for your viewing and listening pleasure.

This blog.

Jeez, I haven't been doing a great job, as of late, keeping this blog relevant. Between the Twitter and Facebook accounts, by the time I get around to here all the info seems overly redundant to bother posting.

I'm going to make an effort, right here and now, to give this blog a more blog-like feel. It'll still have posts of stuff I'm doing and selling and whatever, but the updates will hopefully be more off the cuff and less just repeating what was in Twitter and Facebook.

So ...uhhh.. hmm. Okay, off the cuff. Here goes... well first off I've been doing a few Game of Thrones doodles and hoping to do more as ideas and time allow. I'm reading the third book, Storm of Swords, and enjoying every bit of it. Probably the most addictive reading I've experienced since the Harry Potter series or catching up on all the Sherlock Holmes stories I'd missed.

I've got a couple of illustration pieces I need to get cracking on for two different art shows this summer, one in LA at Qpop and another at Galerie Daniel Maghen in Paris, France. Excited to contribute to both shows. I'll be posting more on those as I actually complete the art.

I've been doing a steady stream of work for SpongeBob Squarepants Comics as well. If you ever get a chance you should pick up an issue. I always find this fellow's video reviews very pleasant. I think Chris Duffy has done an outstanding job, as usual, of collecting a ton of talent to work on the books.

Alright, well that should suffice for my first stab at giving a more substantial and relevant post on this much neglected blog. Stay tuned for more!
