Some advice from a guy (not me) worth taking advice from...

Mr. Maxwell Atoms, creator of "The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy", started a blog.... finally. He's posted some advice about getting into the animation industry. I think he stresses a lot of great things (and he mentions me as well). The most recent post, Jan 8th 2007, is about having a strong portfolio, I think that there are a lot of people reading this blog that could really benefit from what he has to say.

Go and read it.

88 degrees is hot Hot HOT!

It's January 8th and it's 88 degrees outside today. Its days like these that I miss the seasonal change back in New York. Nothing beats the empty streets of Manhattan after a heavy snowfall. The silence is almost deafening, sounds being muffled by the blanket of snow. It's the only time that the city really sleeps.

... whoa, that was some mushy nonsense right there. And here I am, sweating my balls off, on January 8th in Los Angeles blogging about my NYC snow fantasies.... total crap.

And now for everyone's favorite; "Stuff You've Never Seen Before!"

This is the cover for "Patoruzu" issue #108. Drawn by the creator of Patoruzu himself, Dante Quinterno.

This beautifully drawn stip was in "Patoruzu" issue #86. I'm not sure who the artist is, but if anyone knows, please drop a comment. I know I've had some Argentines stop by in the past. Link to larger version.

These pages are from "Libro de Oro Patoruzu: 1961". They're drawn by Eduardo Ferro. Link to larger version.

Happy January 5th!

December is over, that feels pretty good. It was an incredibly busy month for this guy. How about you?


I have some stuff to blog about in the next few weeks, so make sure to check back.... I'm going to attempt to analyze the "spotting of blacks" in one of my favorite Kurtzman comics. Also, I'd like to show you guys some sweet funny animal stuff. As well as announce a project that a friend and I have been trying to organize (slowly).

And maybe I'll post a drawing or 2 of my own...

Here are a few pieces I did as a commission for a Christmas gift. The framing is all photoshop, and I actually haven't seen the pieces printed and framed. I delivered Illustrator files, and I think they were going to be printed fairly large. I hope it all worked out okay.

Who else is dying to get a hold on a Wii?

see ya soon. UP

.. oh yeah.... check out the killer DVD box art Mr. Publick posted for VB season 2. It's tits!
