Panty Project

It's not very often, with my budget being so tight, that I venture away from just paper and pencil. Once in awhile I'll go on some misadventure in the world of experimenting with foreign materials. Sometimes clay sculpting, sometimes forcing my fat fingers to sew, or just making an ass of myself and setting myself up for failure. However, early this year was a different story.
Time warping back to my days in Florida early this year, a friend of mine gave me an opportunity of a lifetime.
They demanded that I defiled one of their clean sets of panties by doing some sort of illustrated motif on them. From there I had nothing to lose.
These photos are the final results before the pre-washing.

The only difference is the blue banding around the top is now black. As for the theme, it was actually inspired by a Youtube clip which you can see here.

Now if only that person would just wear the damn thing.

Let's do something nonsensical once more

Not a very 'artsy' post, but wanted to add a little more coal to this blog's furnace so to speak.
I was hanging out with RabbitJunk in pchat the other night and tried my hand at digital painting for the first time....

Not a very handsome first try.

The comic experiments will have to be put on hold for awhile due to my holiday card and sticker project ( and money issues is really ripping me apart stress wise....probably why I haven't been sleeping....blahblahblah. )
Around the first week of december I'll be alterating commission prices to make them cheaper temporarily for that month. We'll see how that works, but in the meantime....

( sorry Riley, I just had to. And yet you'll never know this entry even existed.
.....*snicker*.... )

Rhythim and Blues

It's been years since I've had my old web comic characters make an appearance in public, so allow me to refresh some memories and maybe make some new ones. In 1999 I had an old web comic called Alien Drugged, a sci-fi 'shoujo' type story about five unique girls and their abilities to fight off an evil empire of intergalactic transvestites. The story was inspired by Rocky Horror Picture Show, Sailor Moon ( HAH! ), and electronica pleasure culture. I stopped working on this around 2003 because of time for the project being cut short and I was reworking the same first chapter over and over. If you're interested in knowing more of this comic, the most recent chapter ( from 2006? ) can be found at my comicspace account.

Now onto more sketches! I decided to upload some older stuff from this year.

Setting the Mood

This is technically a 'part 2' to the Halloween gift art I was working on for Yuki. The grinning wooly lookin guy is Ero Ero Happy, Yuki's 'candy demon'. The chunky pissed off erololita girl is Edsel, my 'witch' type figure.
.....They're best of friends! Can you tell?

The holidays are inching closer, which means it's time for me to carry on my annual tradition of illustrating stickers and mailing out cards to my friends. I also have some practice sequential comics planned in the works, both which are linked to some activity within enterVOID.

Below is a sample pic of one of these said projects I'll try to get working on:

If you know your greek mythology and dramas then you'll more than likely know which painting I parodied this from. This will be based off the tragedy of Apollo x Daphne, but based around the enterVOID verse. When will it happen? I couldn't tell you just yet!

As for sequential mini project number 2, I'll keep that under wraps for now.

In the meantime, that's all for tonight!

Happy Belated Halloween ( and byebye bittermause.com )

WOW! For the most part I was suprised at this year's Halloween's festivities. I went to my first party, raided out candy from work
( they were free range, I swear! ) and I managed to pull off a small gift art to commemorate the holiday and cheer up a friend.
So what we have here is both of our characters dressed up as a Gurololita and a random male Suehiro Maruo character. ( I don't know of anyone specifically, but I know that the author portrays a lot of his male characters in similar outfits. )
Of course the hard eraser and scanner killed my inks. Again.
I did another set as requested by my friend, so I'll post that one up as soon as I can scan and color it!

Also for those that knew of my old website, bittermause.com...it is no longer in existence due to financial woes. BUT! That's where this blog comes in. From now on I'll be posting new content in here as well as news, events, and other art based snippets along with my account at Deviant art .

Because my official website is no longer existing, this blog will be serving a better purpose. (I hope) This is a sample of a commission I finished a few minutes ago. I started this around late summer and due to some side work this took forever to complete.

Massive thanks goes to the commissioner herself for extending help with the pose as well as photographs of the violin. ( Actually, I haven't shown her the piece yet but I'll keep my fingers crossed and hope she likes it. )

Art of the Tease

The following I am going to share and talk about is going to make me feel like I'm a 50 yr old virgin basement dweller. When it comes to portraying sexual innuendo in art, I rarely ever bother with the subject. I usually stick with fantasy, comedy, or just costume design concepts. The reason why I never really touch base with more adult like work is because I always clam up or fall nervous to other people's receptions. Then of course, there's the extremely unhealthy sexual content that swells up inside the internet, and strike me damned if I ever attract the creepy producers of such content. The funny thing is, whenever I do make an attempt and get ballsy showing someone my work....I get a more positive reception than I would have expected.
Do I sound ridiculous yet?

Here's a couple of recent examples.

The first subject on the very top consists of my red headed lady ( You can barely tell because she's pretty much overshadowed by his body, she is meant to be an older version. ) and Yukkin's character. This is the first real attempt of drawing anything slightly provocative. Though she is topless, he is pressing onto her like a human shield. Despite wearing a collar and leash, the fact she isn't being yanked yields a feeling of possession without harm. This was also my first time trying to color an image with half-tone dots.

The second subject was more of a for fun bit. I was thinking more of a daisy chain for this image but I got lazy and everything was already colored so lightly. This reminds me of a pin-up girl from the 1950's, which is one of the few adult based subjects that I do enjoy ( in moderation ).

Someday I will post more similar work when I have the confidence. Someday....

Pimping the Comission wagon

I know not very many people read this blog, but I might as well announce it here too since it IS art related.
You know, I know, and we all know that everyone is going through some pretty hard financial times. Gas has gone up to a ridiculous 4 dollars, milk has gone up to more than 3 bucks, etc.
I'll be going back to Michigan in 4 days, and I'll be facing some heavy hardships myself. I am not able to get my old job back right away, and I'll need whatever help I can manage to get food and necessary goods to keep going.
So please take a look at my journal entry on deviantart account for more information on my comission offers. I'd really appreciate it if you would, and please help spread the word. Thank you!

5/28/2008: Fabulousity & Fat Chunkery

Lately I've been heavily inspired by James Jean, Alessandro Barbucci, and the usage of 1960's typography. It's been a long while since I've dared to touch base on type art, since I've been known to fail at word-designs immensely. This illustration is again, made for the enterVOID community. It's a promotional piece for a sequential 'battle' that my cousin and I will hopefully work on someday soon.

I recently submitted my entry for SLG's Fat Chunk Anthology number 2, which will be in stores November of this year. For those of you who are unaware, FatChunk is a 144 page comic anthology consisting of a variety of comic artists of all levels of skill and cunning, brought to you by BOHDATE.com & published by the head minions of Slave Labor Graphics ( the guys that published JTHM and Lenore. ). Volume one: Robots should've hit the comic book shelves this month. Cross your fingers and let's hope I make the cut.

Coming back to you live with more of my feeble crap to share.

Awhile ago I asked a bunch of people from a forum I frequent to challenge me into drawing different types of vehicles. One buddy of mine suggested the BMWK Motorcycle series, an intense design that I can only describe as a beautiful mysterious she-bitch of a model. The inking isn't finished yet but I'll be working on it again soon.

Concept sketch of Edsel the "Spice" witch. Originally drawn to accompany my friend's candy demon character.

More nonsense with colored ink pens on my moleskin sketchbook. These are all just random ideas/quips between Yuki & I's enterVOID characters.

Wednesday, May 14, 2008


Recently my friend Yuki gave me some colored pens, and I've done nothing but go to town with them in my moleskin sketch book. Here are some examples....

Drawn while waiting for the bus. The scanner totally ripped apart the details. This is a character that I use for the sequential community, EnterVOID. I'll be posting more of her and others shamelessly in the near future.

These are two original characters, whom are husband and wife. They do have a history but I don't feel like getting into too much detail.

Probably one of my best recent sketches, as I am trying to pick up the habit of doing more detailed work. This is inspired by a story concept my cousin came up with awhile ago.


Hello and welcome to my illustration blog. It's currently super naked right now so I'm dressing it up to the best of my ability. ( wow, lame puns left and right. )
This blog mostly contains sketch work, raw concepts, and occasionally a finished product as well as news regarding art and comics.
This is all for now, but please come back soon.
