How I found out



Check out this awesome performance by Ernest! I'm pumped to see him play this Friday, I've never seen Washed Out live before! And while I'm at it, there's a pretty sick new Toro Y Moi live video shot through 3-d glasses that you should watch too!

Right? Eye


When I finished this comic, I read it and realized that I drew my left eye. I'm pretty sure it's because I draw myself how i see myself in a mirror. It's the same reason why I always draw myself left handed.

Brush talk


I'm really into drawing utensils, I love trying new pens, I love hearing what people use, I love going to art stores and buying stuff. I first heard about Widsor & Newton'sSeries 7 brushes in an interview with Jeff Smith, because it's what he uses. I couldn't justify spending that much on a brush (around $30), so I just kept using my cheap brushes and kept saying I would eventually get a nice one. After I used one for the first time yesterday, it was obvious that it is far superior to any brush I've ever used, BUT I still think I prefer my Pentel Pocket Brush Pen, which kind of bums me out! Samantha bought me the Pocket Brush Pen for Christmas after I told her I wanted one (because it's what Craig Thompson uses), and I thought it would be the perfect travel brush. Turns out it is the perfect anytime brush and it's all I use anymore, and I was hoping getting the Series 7 brush would change that. It's just crazy that a portable brush, that you never have to clean or physically dip into ink, that only costs $12, could be the best brush I've ever used. Long story short: BUY ONE OF THESE!!!

Akira


Here's Alex Pardee's work, so if you've seen Akira, look at his work and try to remember what the end of the movie looked like.

Not for Kids


I've been using a new Copic marker for the past few days. I really like the marker (it's awesome you can refill the ink and it's oval shape so it doesn't roll off the table), but whenever i scan it it looks all grainy. It sucks because I really don't like using prismacolors, They're like $4 each and I have to replace them every couple weeks. Any ideas or suggestions? I don't want to use ink wash because i want it to be very evenly applied and consistent, and I want to do it by hand, not on the computer.

Good Eats


HERE'S A VIDEO of the eat Your Art Out art show I was in in LA. THIS IS THE PAINTING that I did for the roller-derby themed show. It looks like it was super fun! Haha and they show my painting for a second with my name and it says that the medium for the painting was mixed media (?), i just used inks, and it says I'm from North Carolina (?). I guess I used to live in South Carolina, so it's pretty close...? haha it's still cool though.

I feel like I could have made this one a lot funnier, but my co-workers probably would have gotten pissed, haha.

Samantha is Leaving


I'm dropping off Samantha at the airport today so she can have fun with all our cola friends for a week! So check out my forthcoming comic I make about samantha calling me and telling me how much fun she's having while i'm playing video games by myself or something, haha.

Check out my friend Gerald's blog at Emporio Electronico Del Gerald(o). He just started updating it again with his Vlogs (small video's about his life and stuff). Some are funny, some are just interesting, but I just love watching them! It's like watching reality tv or something, and it's always cool to see day-in-the-life of a graphic designer. and his impressions are the BEST.
