For the last month-or-so, Lloyd, Vincent, Ed, and I have been working on a basement mural at on a giant wall in Club 6. We were going to their "so you think you can paint?" events every week and painting comic book murals until Club 6 owner, Angel, took notice and asked us to participate in their downstairs art galley/dance club/ bar. If you've never been to Club 6, it's easily one of the most impressive bars in San Francisco. Located at 60 6th St between Mission and Market, it features three concert rooms and bars, and an art gallery. They have painting events, live rap/rock/punk/reggee shows there all the time, including famous bands like the Uptones. You should go and check out our mural NOW!
Alright, so, in my attempt to get better at inking and drawing, I did what every self-respecting wanna-be comic artist does whenever he/she wants to get inspired: Draw Wolverine.
And this second drawing is for another AAU comic book club contest we held this last week: Character Creation. We're each given two random powers that we had to combine to create a character. I got 1)trans-dimensional storage and, 2)Extraordinary balance.
Here's my character: An orphaned space circus trapese wire walker turned deadly space super pirate, Chux travels the galaxy with his transdimensional backpack in search of excess kirby crackle left over from the gods and cosmic beings that travel there. He stores the crackle in his backpack in endless supplies, and uses it to smash evil space aliens into green goo globs as he searches for his long lost space pirate parents and the treasure they posses.
Lastly, I had another article featured on Bleeding Cool about Madefire studios in Berkeley. You can read it at http://www.bleedingcool.com/2012/09/28/now-an-iphone-made-of-fire/

Ooookay, and this is the last one of the day for me, and it's a cover design rough for Ultrasylvania 2. Frankenstein is one of the leading characters of the graphic novel, and this is a portrait style painting rough. It's not the final! Just the first rough draft.
Alright, I'm not sure if any of you have been reading the Ultrasylvania web comic, and if you havn't, you SHOULD! RIGHT NOW! http://www.ultrasylvania.com. Anyway, the first volume is done, and we're starting on the second now, so I thought I'd share some of the character designs I'm working on with you all. Hope you like them!
Alright, I have a bunch of stuff for you all to see today, the first being my VERY FIRST 3D model! I've never used ZBrush before, but I've spent my lunches over the last week working on this lizard guy. Now I just have to figure out what to do with him now that he's done. I actually really like using ZBrush, and it's something that I definitely want to get more involved with.
