    // The Douchebaggery //

    I decided to make a new sketchthread because I honestly can't stand some of my old stuff, just as I'm sure I'm not gonna be able to stand this new stuff in a year. Thanks to everyone who offered up encouragement in my last thread.

    Some newness

    ender - Thanks man!

    Magic Man - Thanks man, I appreciate it. I've been enjoying the stuff in your sketchbook.

    maknien - Thanks! The first sketch with the faces was actually done completely in photoshop, but most of the time I go back and forth. There are some brushes in painter I really like, but for detail stuff I usually go to photoshop.

    I used to do quite a bit of these here self-portraits, but I probably haven't done one in a year (I'll have to check my old SB to be sure, hehe). I decided to start another one for old times sake. I used a slightly blurred, overlay layer to punch up the colors a bit.

    Zord - Thanks man. I totally have to look up the libyan sibil. My art history knowledge (lack thereof) is embarrasing.

    Nutter - Thanks!

    duddlebug - Thanks man. I'm really enjoying your sketchbook stuff. I have no idea what pooters are...oh computers. I be slow

    dCept - Hey thanks man! How is the Anansi boys book? I've been pretty lazy with reading books w/o pretty pictures, but I pretty much read everything Neil Gaiman writes. Mirrormask soon!!!!

    That fat kid - Thanks man. I'm still trying to figure out a balance between leaving some rough/painterly looking marks and rendering. Sometimes I feel like I can over render something and it ends up being unappealing to me.

    van - Thanks for the encouragement man. I've been reading your thread, good luck going through whatever you're going through. I'm sure you'll be fine.

    liam - Hey thanks man! Glad you found the new book!

    dadamafia - Thanks.

    Diego - Thanks. I will certainly keep posting.

    Flaskpost - Haha, thanks. You should aim higher! hehe

    Tigermilk - Thanks for dropping by. I'm definitely trying to post more often. Just have to make stuff worth posting.

    Here's something a bit different, a simple 2-color illustration I did for work. Sketched out the cop then tightened it up in illustrator and just took a photo of the car and traced over it.



    Here's a blue version that I'm leaning toward.

    Thanks. Getting better all the time...at least I think so. Your posts have been pretty sparse as of late. That's too bad...your art is appreciated around these parts. Nice updates, man.

    Hey man! Go with the blue version..
    I'm eagerly awaiting an update on Death

    And to answer your question; Anansi Boys was extremely cool! Too bad it had to end so soon..hehe... I even tried dragging out the last pages to make it last longer.
    I'm not gonna tell you about it... just buy it and enjoy!

    I know this isn't exactly relevant to the sketchbook, but I just wanted to let you know that Mirrormask was an amazing movie. I saw it last year at a film festival, and I went to a small workshop my school held with Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean. Make sure you see it as soon as it comes out, it's awesome!

    Hey welcome back, missing you around here. You must be going through some serious life changes to make that switch on your avatar. Makes me think of "Caddyshack", "I'm alright, nobody worry bout me......."
