Hands Comic

Created in two days, I picked a topic that I knew absolutely nothing about, this is a wonderful piece that kind of gets you thinking about our selves and is completely free...

The real challenge was keeping the writing at a grade 7 level as a minimum. Unfortunately I promised myself I would destroy the original when completed. I did that. Now guess what... I found a few typos and I can not go back.... Darn it all. At least it explains why I would give this away for free.

on a whim...

We spend a day in the bad lands.
Just up and took a weekend day and trekked through the heat and humidity of the famous horse shoe canyon. Took in the Dinosaur museum and then finished the day in the out door water park by the worlds biggest T-Rex.

Why would we do this?????????????????????????

Why not. Life can not be lived in the boredom of a bunch of bills and worries. Throw caution in the wind and live a little. Life is only what you make it. You might as well accumulate more debt in the process. Ha!

Fred and Barneys is a small family restaurant there - serving Chinese food. The waitress was very wonderful to our children. I suggest you give it a try when your in Drumheller, Alberta next visit.

Funny Things

Here is another quick drawing... Well not really that quick, just a WIP.
Guns are once again featured here. See a theme?
What has happened is a reflection of what my young ones are doing.... They of course are doodling swords. So I end up doodling guns. Go figure.

Here is the latest gun toting guy.

The idea here is he is as awesome with the gun as Billy the kid, but the gun itself is far more then it appears. It is an enchanted weapon. It is extra large. It is basically a hand cannon.Some people suggest he is compensating for something. But to say that is to walk away with an extra whole in ones head.

BTW - The Gun is named "Incumbent".

Pretty funny. The gun idea is loosely based on the first nations natives (Indians)version of the talking stick. Except the guy with the gun get to hold office. It is pretty hard to disagree with the guy pointing a gun in your face.

Super Heroes Must Die

Well this is a real site. I did a fan piece for it. What can I say. I kind of agree.

No more Astronauts...

It has taken some time for this to sink in. I mean what are you going to do with all the over educated unemployed nerds of the world????
One person suggested that they start a hockey team for the NHL. With all the head shots happening, those unemployed astronauts are likely going to be down to the normal I.Q. of everyone else by the end of the first season.
You could also have them turn into comic book artist. At least they would have a place to hang out with fellow geeks. That was my suggestion.

I always expected Japan to rule the world with robotics. They might just get their chance in the next 5 years too. Space will be dominated by their tech. Americans clearly have taken a step backwards. Perhaps they finally admit that humans simply can not live in space for long periods of time. Not that the average person needed to be told that.

Radiation, no air, not pressure, no sun, no food.... They better focus on teleporation and robotic drones. That we we can just beam to other places - star gate/ teleportation style.

WWE - THE ROCK IS BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tonight the Rock makes his Wrestling Come back!

SAY WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Unless your inviting me to watch Wrestling - Don't call me, I'm Busy!

The French

What can I say, no one can quite insult a person like the french. Okay Shakespeare comes close, but the french have it down to an art form. My Dad often reminds me of this when he break out into his rants.

Incidentally I've been going over the work of French painters and decided to try and replicate the art form on a digital style. I then took some of the lessons learned bought it to a more illustrative style and the results are all visually interesting to me. What do you think?

- Enjoy!

What I'm reading!

I decided to go to a book store recently. Yes you know the place like a library but you get to purchase books. I know it is a possibility that the same content is free on the web, though I did not want to search out 100 web sites when every thing might be neatly collected into one volume.

I found a great bargain book.
"The Big Questions - Mathematics" by Tony Crilly.

Just a great read. The book gets to the core of several ideas with out the long winded details and actual calculations. There is enough information to work the theories out your self or simply read the book to get a grasp of concepts old and new and how things are currently viewed through the eyes of math and our world.

If your a Math major, you will hate it for the lack of details. If your an average person like myself, it really is a great source of food for thought and makes you consider alternative ways of thinking about the world around you. I found it to be a refreshing take on life and the science that surrounds us that we may not have really thought about... like phones and travel!http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif

I also put together another PDF / e-magazine for those of you who like the Palladium books game system. It can be found at the following link...
It is created by fans from fan material. Collected nicely for free distribution to other gamers of this declining game system. It is pretty slick despite the many idiosyncratic aspect of the game mechanics it is the most comprehensive and detailed of any I've ever played as a player.

Workout strategies

Workout strategies are hard to come by. You really have to just do it.
Time being a limited thing I have turned to body sculpting, and body building techniques.

I know what your thinking...No I don't look like a steroid goon.

Female body builders use their body and resistance, where men use weights to really tear muscle up. I've chosen to go with standard weight training and incorporate some of the techniques the women are using. I have to say it really works. The results are starting to show. I can see abs under all my fat!

Okay, I'm chubby, but the sculpting of the body can be achieved with daily repetition and no more then 10 reps per body part. Honestly - because I only do 10 reps per day it has taken 12 months to see results. Still so few reps and still just sticking with the limited time I have has proven that these pro-women really do know what they are talking about. Also, the heavier lifts that the guys use keeps your body looking in hunky form... Well in my chase it is more chunky.

I'm getting there. - LOL

time for images

I love doing this stuff. I thought I would change gears in the near future and tackle more political and editorial stuff. Focus on characters in our world.
For now this should do. I just need to get more ideas out.

fan Piece

I did this piece while trying to stay true to OtherWorld Comic creators work. Yes it is visually different from my regular stuff because I'm trying to replicate the work of another and still keep the flare of visuals.

Hope you like it.

So what I've been upto...Part Deux

E-mags... yup I've join forces with a few e-mag publishers... Well sort of, I beg them to take me and my work. A whole bunch of folks have told me a suck lately. Who am I to argue with the paying customers. So what I did was grab my nut sack and took a run for the wall... I begged a few folks for another shot and they gave it to me... When it (my Work) appears in e-print I'll post it here. The first is for October, the second in January...We'll see if they love me... or not.

P.S. They (The publishers) don't speak English well so even if they slag me, I'll be able to pretend not to understand and take it as a compliment by saying..."Yhea you too buddy! Thanks!"


Some old and some never seen before...

These were drummed up and I thought I would share them... Memory being what it might be, or rather tech failing me again... I wanted to make sure folks had a chance to see my coloring and art from days gone by and of course see what I've been up to... Archiving of course.
