Pretty much abandoned

I haven't logged into this thing in ages! Not sure if people still follow this blog anymore. I wouldn't be surprised in the least!

This blog account is and will remain discontinued for an undisclosed amount of time. I have nothing against Blogger, but my interest in it is no longer there. You can already tell by the lack of updates on this thing.

Don't fret! I've been adamantly working on a few projects plus a Tumblr account!
Check em' out!

( A collaborated webcomic effort between myself and Yuki S. )
Alien Drugged:
( My solo webcomic project to be launched on August 6th )
Hause of Mause:
( My Tumblr account, where you can check on some behind the scenes sketches, illustrations, and occasional craft work that you won't find on DA or here! )

Thank you for following along with this blog for as long as it lasted. I'll keep this account up so you can check out some of my older stuff.
Until then, have a great summer!

New Beginnings ( new void comic plus online comic in the works )

It's been well over half a year since I updated this blog. I wonder if people still know this place exists?
It's the new year and it's time to set priorities straight. I am no longer going to continuously sulk in my chair and make plans just to break them. Since the end of December I've been working diligently towards my goals in comics, and will continue to do so throughout the year.

The first of these major projects is the long planned EnterVOID submission of Sergio Pancrazio vs Eliza Quaille, which will now be in a two part Beyond Battle format dubbed 'Imouto'. The first part of this comic will be released February 21st or possibly earlier.
Details are here:

The next project will be an Online comic which will be a co-op between myself and Yuki Salinas. The project is under wraps and I don't want to give away any details, but once the website is ready for launch a link will be provided.

Explanation of absence, contests, F*X*T mag

Once again I apologize for the delay of updates. I normally don't talk about the grievances in my life through here since I have other outlets for venting. February of this year for me was the number one contender for worst month of my entire life. ( thus far ) My car broke down and had to replace an engine for two grand, which took away all of my tax return money and almost leaving me in the hole in my bank account. I was absent from the university for over one and a half weeks and despite my e-mails to the instructors, their responses were more of a half-hearted " I'm so sorry about your car" followed by a "BTW don't forget to bring some ________ for next class!" and I ended up getting kicked out of the place I was living. Nice eh?

And so washing my hands from my hellstained past and moved back to my old hometown, scored my old job back, and I've been more productive than ever.
Let's see, where to start...

I've recently joined a group on DeviantArt called Ink Group founded by a fellow comic artist and good buddy. He is also working on a unique artbook called "It's Like I Can Touch You", in which various artists contribute different sci-fi/ fantasy themed art pieces to be converted into stereoscopic art. ( aka 3-D Magic! )You can check out the details in this article on DapShow!

Satellite Soda is a collective art site which showcases handfuls of brilliant talent all over. They are holding a contest for their third artbook installment. You can see my hastly done entry here.

I would also like to encourage all of you artist and comic connessoirs(sp) to check out F*X*T, a magazine project that focuses on original art, comics, and stories. Problem is, they are lacking funds and are in need of your help! To get the project running, they need to hit their goal of $10,500 with only 12 days left! This project deserves a chance, so please check out their site here!

Previews be hustlin'

More Alien Drugged snippets fresh from my moleskin book.

These are but a small handful of the key players in AD. From the left we have Frog Chikori and Echo Magdelis in their revised costumes. Frog's face reminds me of Eric Warheim for some reason. Middle we have Tanuki, a masculine drag queen who also plays an important role in the story. Lastly there's Coral Cuda, an aggressive gal who delights in making Echo's life a living hell.

Just so you know folks, I am about halfway done with inking the very first chapter. More promo art along the way, but not for awhile due to some hectic circumstances.

Well I said I was going to post more right after that last entry, but man you guys ought to know by now that I am a terrible terrible liar. At least my best excuse is school, school, and more school. Don't worry, AD is not coming to another permanent halt. HOWEVER I was busy experimenting with the art of decoupage/Mod Podge and got some interesting results. Here's some samples of boxes I've been working on...

This is a box I did for my sister for Christmas. My first stab at mod podge, and a bit of a proud achievement. For this I used mod podge to tack down the black and white scrapbook paper, black acrylic paint, pearl white flower beads, and an avery mailing label with the original girl design by me.

One of my in-progress boxes. Not very high maintenance here, just tacking down a bunch of black and red miniature dice beads to make it look like a dice-mesh cube. You can't see it here but I kind of messed up on how much room the rows of die can take up, but I'll still finish it regardless of the sloppy handling.

I have a couple more to snapshot but that will also be awhile since one of them is a gift I need to mail out.

Concept Art

Yes! We now have a post involving stuff in techni-color!

Most of the posts from here will involve quite a bit of concept art for my story. Here are the two main characters in their renovated 'battle costumes'
( I needed to update them since they had he same clothes since 1998.)

Please excuse my scanner, she likes to snack on the colors and line quality.

Alien Drugged + Gorge

Changed up my blog's design again! This time it should be more permanent than most. ( plus I'm having a current love affair with gun metal gray and bright orange. ) I haven't had much of a chance to update this, as I've been too busy failing at school and hating my job. On the upswing, I've been working on two projects with the free time I have to spare.

these are just some preview shots of what's in store or Alien Drugged. Raw material stuff as usual.

Sketches of a bunch of different important characters from me and Yuki's collaboration project, Gorge.

More updates as they happen! ( ....what a way to state the obvious. )
