Return from San Diego

I got back from San Diego last night at about 7:30, and I am beyond exhausted. I had such a good time though, and got to chat it up with SO many awesome people, as well as get back together with a bunch o' peeps that I haven't seen in a good while. I already can't wait for next year (though I have no problem resting for a year first).

I'll post up some photos and what not after I've recovered from the trip.

also, wanted to shout out to a few of the artists that really provided some great chit chat and doodling time, thanks guys

Adam Hughes
Sean Galloway
Lesean Thomas
Dean Yeagle
Alberto Ruiz
and a handful of the Udon guys (tribute book is f*cking CRAZY)

aaand thanks to Rob Liefeld for the dinner and drinks, and to Tim & Eric for their crazy shenanigans at the [adult swim] party! (i'm still not sure how I should feel that Tim called me Heath Ledger)

Doodle Progress, life in general

I've been spending the last couple weeks working away and bonding with my new puppy. I'll have to post up some more pictures sometime soon. I'm beyond ecstatic with my new com padre "Harvington-Reginald Short Stuff Wallbanger", or simply, Harvey. Other than that, work has been picking up more and more as the schedule for the show becomes more hectic.

I've seen a few movies that I haven't rated yet; some good, some not as good:

Now's for The Dark Knight. God I can't wait for that.. and, the animated Batman Gotham Knight was pretty fuckin' sweet too.

Comic-con in a couple weeks!

and, still haven't finished my Metal Gear piece, but I started up another one for Naruto Shippuden. Here's some line work..

and here's my reworked business card for the time being. I have a few coming in for Comic-Con and what not.

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

I don't rate games much, but this one overcomes so many existing movies cinematically that I don't have a choice but to squeeze it in here.

There are of course always going to be some things that can be nitpicked at, but there is so much in terms of perfection in this title that all of those little burps can be completely forgiven and forgotten, in my eyes at least.

This wraps up the 20 year Metal Gear saga completely, and sends Solid Snake off with an amazing final hurrah. I won't discuss the story at all, because there is merely too much in this saga to try and put in a nutshell, but I'll say I was incredibly satisfied and torn emotionally. While it's hard to say goodbye to Snake, I'm just happy he received a deserving leave of absence.

MGS Doodle Progress

I'm geeking out incredibly in anticipation for the new Metal Gear Solid game this week and I wanted to do a little illustration for each of the three Solid titles out so far. I started on this one of Snake and Meryl but keep finding myself NOT working on it. So in case I don't get around to knocking the rest of it out before the release of the new one I wanted to at least have some WIP posted for it as proof that I DID care enough to at least try, haha..

The two figures and a closer shot of Snake so far..

Corgi Come Lately

I am FIIIIINALLY getting my Corgi.

I grew up my entire life with dogs and had my own personal Shepard through most of my childhood and through high school (though of course couldn't take him with me when I moved to San Fran for college).. and unfortunately he passed away when I was nearing the end of my college education. But now that I'm done with school and have been out working in the industry for over a year I've decided it was time to get a dog back in my life. Especially after my roommate Steve got his Pug, and it seems like SOOOooo many other people that I know have dogs and I just get the fact smashed upon my face.

I've been wanting a Corgi for years now, and got lucky enough to find this little fellow (currently 5 weeks of age and called Short Stuff by the breeders). I will be his new Pappy after June 26th - a late birthday present to myself :) I'm so F*CKING excited.

Dr. Jones Ink

You know, this is months old news, but since the movie is out in a couple weeks and I failed to post anything about this at the time, IT SHALL GO UP NOW!

I caved to my Indy obsessiveness and tattooed that bitch forever upon my arm. In progress and hot off the press..

Awesome Show. Great Job!

Last weekend a few of my buddies and i trecked down to Amoeba on Haight to see Tim and Eric from the show of the same name on [adult swim] (our show aired right before theirs in the line up, whheeee!)

They were apparently hung over and full of witty banter, here they are sitting at a table AND signing things at the SAME TIME. how they multi task in such ways, i shall never understand.. the larger faces in the top photo are two o' my buddies, chris vear (left) and jonathan richardson (other left). such crisp cellphone pichures :)

Teen MeMe

so this is aaaall over the interwebs now, and it has
spread within my initial network of fellow artsy peeps.. so i am now obligated to participate OBviously. i haven't been very active in the world of memes, but i guess it's never to late to jump on the boat.

objective here: draw yourself as a teen

so here we've got my teen self in oooh, freshman-sophomore year circa 2000, and then my current self of may 2008. details listed of course :)

check out the plethora of other examples here

Doodle for Damian

still scarce with the illustration scene, a new piece is a rare sighting.. BUT, i did this up for a pal's birthday and figured i'd post it.

Iron Man

Iron Man

Finally. FINALLY. FINALLY! Marvel FINALLY did one right. It sticks close enough to the original story while still taking it in a nice direction for modern audiences. Downey is a great Stark and Bridges is always good, Big Lebowski man! My only complaint would have to be that there wasn't enough of Iron Man himself, I wanted more. But, the extra bit at the end of the credits more than made up for it by escalating my geekdom..

The Return!

..and I haven't posted on this thing forever! I DID give proper warning that such would happen though :)

No point trying to catch people up, a lot has happened, I'm back working and we just moved to a new studio that is quite bitchin! I also just finished up a big side project doing some concept work for another potential animated series. Hopefully I'll be able to post those up in the future. and HOPEFULLY I'll actually start posting up some more doodles and what not, I've been trying to get myself back in the groove of sketching..

aaah yes, and regarding Xavier below, the first season finished it's prelinary run on [adult swim] in January and is going to be getting a second season! Hurray! If you haven't seen it, you should! And if you have seen it, I'm sorry for your brain..
