Spotted this in an estate sale gallery today and couldn't believe my eyes.*

Apparently, this is a $700-$900 rug from the Guggenheim Arts Collection.

I'm in the wrong business.

I was really good at realism at school but I didn't grasp the finer points of surrealism. I didn't work on comics until I made my own cartoon style characters
like Ren & Stimpy and Nickeloden. then in 2005 I started drawing comicbooks that are like Simpsons newsagent comics crossed with storyboards.
I used my character Jimbob Jorkey and his friends. I started to draw at a slightly elevated level than what I was doing in my spare time between lessons which was lots of stick figures warring.





Then after I left school, I had some time off to refine it because I was really ill. I'd say I've been making comics for 10 years at this level, it hasn't changed much but I find I'm more able to communicate the subject I want to.



It's a really tiring way of working because I do pencils, then I do really fine inks and rub out the pencils then I "laquer" it up and kinda of twist a second layer over the top. My favourite part has always been working with colour.









Painted the borders black for dramatic license.
Same stuff but I coloured it in. I used watercolours, felt tip pens and colouring pencils. I would use colouring pencils all the time if the paper grain would allow.

You might have hundreds of beautiful messages that you want to get across to people, but they aren't worth a damn if you can't convey them properly.

Thanks, that's ok. Hey crukster, we love the things you do. Hey, Crukster, if we could I would be you.

They're Great!



This is a short ten page comic that's music inspired so you guys might like it. I got to ten pages, and it was like this has to be finished I can't keep dragging the story along. So I just ended it because my line of focus snapped. I don't tell anyone but I've had trouble reading and writing for a long time. By that I mean I don't read novels like I would if I knew how to. If I could, I'd just draw the pictures like in a children's book.

Because I can't decide where to start from, I put in a few characters from each of the different worlds I use. So although I'd normally work parallel, I worked them in altogether. It's fun, the thing is, they have to appear separatley anyway so you realise, I might as well just save them for another comic or story I'm telling. I think the mixing part is what slayed me. I should just work on them with the guys they share the world with.

I applied for a job earlier this year and sent them this, but they didn't want me on set design. So it was a no go. I really like the colourfulness of it, it's just I don't want the characters in the books to say much.

Thanks a lot everyone! Have a great time, enjoy the artwork.

Sorry for the double post, continue!

11/20

Here's five pages of some new pages in Chapter 1 of my comic. I left it at a continue page so now I'm picking it up, and I'm interested to work on the characters a few pages at a time and jump from chapter to chapter, so I can fill up a book with comics.

Ideally, I want it to come across as random sporadic and what I mean by that is natural and spontaneous. Also, I want there to be some established story for the characters, so if I do enough of that I can just start cropping up gag joke pages in between.

It just picks right up where I left off which you can read on the facebook page. I use a Sharpie to half the time, and I don't colour it in. I mostly improvise the dialogue to get the right beat - but I had a lot of these pages pencilled already so I'm not working from scratch, it's more like recovery.

That's great. I like how vaguely suspicious he looks.
