My FIRST Kickstarter Project is now GOING!!!!

Backing Johnny B. Gerardy's artistic efforts for the cookbook are picking up speed a bit.

I filmed and edited a new video that you can play from the project page. Anyone backing the project will now also get updates on a daily basis. Check out the video to get a look at Johnny himself, if you haven't met him, and such creations as:


If you'd like, blog about this on your own sites if appropriate. I'll be tweeting, facebooking, Plaxo-ing and myspacing about it. Whew!!

"Weapons & Death" New Red Dead Instructional Video

This is the lastest instructional video for the Red Dead Redemption game. As the name suggests, there are lots of weapons and death within. Tread lightly ... I think this is clipping some of the frame, to see it correctly, use the title as your link.

GHOST PROVOKERS Episode 1 is online!

Spooooky greetings TAGgers! Please check out the Ghost Provokers webpage for the first full episode in 4 parts! Click HERE for the link to the page and let me know what you think! Lots of deleted scenes coming soon as well.

Sketchbook faces

I haven't posted in awhile but heres some sketches
from my Faces Sketchbook

Game Jam Background

Here's a sample of some background work I did for out recent Game Jam effort. It was meant to be a parallaxing background for a side-scrolling chase sort of game, but we didn't have time to put in the parallax. Still, it looked pretty good when it was scrolling along.

It's not too bad considering it was created at 2:00 am.

Vote For John Marston's Costume ...

Hey, check out the little contest that a nationwide game retailer is running. Clues you in on what kind of fellah Marston can be. I like the polecat hat in the hunter outfit. The title is your link to the site.

Index Manhattan

Watched Manhattan Melodrama. The first movie with William Powell and Myrna Loy. I focused on William Powell a couple of times and missed by a wide mark.

I scanned these with the IMAC and need to adjust the scanner and get a softer look. These look like a sharpen filter was at work.

Six New Questions on "Gun Nose Presents" Quiz

While it's no Ghost Provokers (and really shouldn't ever be; there can only be one G.P.) ... there are now eight questions in the "Gun Nose Presents" trivia quiz, six of which are new since the last posting. A few are strangely provocative ... It's fun learning just enough Flash coding to be dangerous.

The Sarah palin is ink straight to paper

Early Drawing-Ford XL and Cow

I was given permission to drive the family car between Gravelly and Little Texas, Arkansas, when I was driver permit age. A Ford XL, 1967 era? It looked like the one posted above.
Once I met with a group of cows filling the road. As I gently nosed through them, one cow kicked the rear of the car,leaving a dent.
GrandPa Oscar was very agitated and worried that I had run over a neighbour's cow that he might have to buy. So I did a sketch re-enactment to calm his mind.

Pretty good anatomy on the cow.

New Ghost Provokers trailer up.

The new promo is up at the Ghost Provokers website! Check it out and let me know what you think.

Index Card Motoring

Caricatures and monsters

Man's got to know his limitations

See those two middle color rectangles under "your search colors." One is blue green and one is pink purple. I can't tell those apart. I would guess pink purple for both. This is the heart of why I gave up oil painting. I have to make all my painting efforts digital where I can do color picking. But it's best that I avoid color all together. To avoid embarrassing moments where people comment on the greens in my skin tones.

Clck the title for 1970 comicon tape recordings. A lot of Shel. Scott Shaw. And KIRBY!

Comic Art Community website for art surfing

Title takes you to the subhead of Adam Hughes Sketches. I've been right click saving his pin ups.

Test Version of New Game ... "The 'Gun Nose Presents' Q&A"

Just so you can see it in its nascent state, here is the "Gun Nose Presents Q&A" ... To get there, click on the title of the post (I put it up on Right now it is just two questions and there isn't an adequate sell statement on the finishing slide that asks you to play again. I'm working on it with Kyle Hansen at my office and he's teaching me the Flash you need to know. When it is done, it'll be 20 questions at a time and I'll have progressively "deep" versions for fans of the comic to play.

GHOST PROVOKERS website is live!

Hey everyone! Hopefully alot of you have received word via e-mail or Facebook about this, but if not...


Click on and it'll take you to the site where you'll get to see the first promo of our upcoming episode on January 27, 2010 as well as some video bios and picture galleries. Each Wednesday (Jan. 13 and 20) we'll have a new promo leading up to the premiere as well.

For those who don't know, Me and a few co-workers have made a parody of those ghost shows you often see on TV like Ghost Hunters, Ghost Adventures, and Most Haunted. Our investigative technique usually involves something more antagonistic and we end up turning relatively harmless spirits into angry, vengeful ghosts, usually at my characters expense.

Take a look, let me know what you think. All told, the whole episode on the 27th will run around 25 minutes. We're going to be putting it up on YouTube, eBaum's World, College Humor, and other sites as well as our webpage. I hope you enjoy it! If it turns out well we're going to make more. And PLEASE feel free to send the link out to friends! We want to get as many people watching this as we can.
Thanks and have a spoooooooooky day!
