Batman #1 is out!

Today Batman #1, part of DC’s All New 52 came out!  I cant put this comic down, fantastic art work by Greg Capullo, Scott Snyder and Jonathan Glapion!  Started with one post it, and worked my way out..I might just sketch the whole cover using post its.  Hope you enjoy!

Lord Kensington

Here @ Kensington we are proud of our rich history and heritage that stands the test of time from generation to generation.  Kensington was originally founded by The Honourable William Edwardes Kensington the 4th, also known as the Baron of Kensington or Lord Kensington.   As a very eccentric and avid lock collector, Lord Kensington was a very important figure in the County of Middlesex.   In 1868 he was elected to the House of Commons for Havefordwest, and held the Security Seat until 1872.  Lord Kensington never lost sight for his love of  collecting mid-evil locks, widgets and all sorts of gizmos.   Apart from his political career he also held the honorary post of Chief Lieutenant of Redwood Shire.    In 1873, Lord Kensington invented a mechanical tamper proof, tumbling device for the Earl of Limrick, to lock down his expensive computational instruments and gauges.  He filled for his first patent that very same year and he turned his love of collecting locks into much much more.

anyone in this meeting that tries to get in my way, i will sketch ur face off…or at least try too…

Found some old prismacolor pencils…

I was at a garage sale last weekend and noticed this really cool box.  Walked up to check it out and I quickly realized that it was something really cool!  The “prismacolor” writing and funky color boxes on the side attracted my eye.   When I opened the box, I found 6 packs (of a dozen each) of Prismacolor pencils called a “half gross”.  Each box is marked “EAGLE: Thick Lead Color Pencils”…. I opened one of the boxes and found mostly brand NEW prismas!  The wood seemed really hard, and more like real wood.  The Typography on the side, was totally different, much more of the period they are from…im guessing the late 60’s early 70’s ( judging the colors, type and wear of the packaging).

You can cut the back of this packaging off, mail it along with .25 cents to order really early prismacolor markers!

I sharpened a few of them and noticed that the wood was much stronger, the lead alot stronger and really took a good point!

Decided it was time to sketch something out…a few of my favorites from Finding Nemo!  Go Sharks!

Dominique…the paper and pen connoisseur

A quick sketch of Domy…hows that there tooth on that canson paper? hahahah

Smokin!

Been really inspired by Brian Viveros lately, I definitely want to own some of his art one of these days! Took about 5 underlays to get this one right, its still to heavy in line work, but the body pose feels right. Done on trace paper with razor point, chartpack and a bit of prisma.

Dynamic Figures

Hey Guys,

I’ve been super inspired by Spencer Nugent’s Sketch-A-Day and I’ve taken it upon myself to do the same thing! So here is the first one I copied some stuff from Burne Hogarths Book “Dynamic Figure Drawing” Used a pilot razor point 2 on trace.

szerencse and friends

this is a really initial sketch (orthographic style) of a character that will be part of a comic strip/kids book/ etc that Zsuzsa and I have been working on.  His name is szerencse (tough to pronounce) but it means “Lucky” in Hungarian. Pretty cute name for a dog, reminds me of an old folk tale or something.   More to come for this series, so check on back!

Liger

Sketched this guy on this crazy old school HP transparencey/ film type paper, that Jon and I picked up from the archives of SJSU ID.  Sweet stuff!  I used prismacolor pencils and Ad Markers on the back of it, to control the pencil/linework on one side, and marker/color on the other.
