This I SWEAR!


Alright so, I've just recently become a fan of El Tigre, never really seen it before since all Nick plays is Spongebob and Icarly.

But its really been a while since a show like this has really grabbed me.Its got great animation, character acting, character designs, awesome music, color schemes, good stories, great action, lots of inspirations taken from alot of different stuff and over all just some cool stuff to just look at. I can also tell the creators put alot of heart into it, everything just breathes and seems to have its own kind of taste. And also I'm such a sucker for the spaghetti western references, hehehe.




Anyway I rarely do fanart for something I've just gotten into but El Tigre just jumped right up in my face and demanded it. Wish I was into this show when it came out.

Also this is the first pic I colored with my new Wacom Bamboo Tablet! Yay!
And sorry for posting so much fanart and lame sketches. I'll do something original when I feel like it. So enjoy!

Quit jibbing my jab!

I haven't really done anything finished in a while, got kind of a lack of motivation and some discouragement. But until that lets up heres some doodles and sketches.

I was watching "To Kill a Mockingbird" and just HAD to draw that ugly kid, he's so wonderous.


Some stuff I drew while not paying attention to the superbowl.


Gorillas hate work. Wish I had a job so I could say the same thing.


Warthog and Nazi Snake: Das Rattle!

And finally an unfinished inking of one of my dream pets, a black throated monitor lizard named Caesar. He will be a king.
Thats all for now. Comments always appreciated :]

A Monstrous Valentine

Whooooooa so...I'm on Flapjack...!

I haven't exactly seen the episode yet but apparantly my K'nuckles picture got into the Special Valentines Day ep. Um WHAT!

Thats pretty damn amazing! I've never won anything for my art before so this feels extra awesome. Plus I had a shitty day today and to come home to find out Igot my art on Flapjack was such a picker-upper. Goddamn...um thanks Thurop or Cartoon Network or God or...whoever lol.

Aaaand in other news...I'm an official character layout designer for the spooky kooky cartoon special MONSTROVILLE!

I'll be working with Miah Alcorn (El Tigre), creator Viktor Von Kreep and many other awesome artists on board. I'm so excited to be apart of this! Basically its a cartoon monster show with elements of classic horror and sci fi...I was thinking "how perfect for me is that! I gotta get my hands in this!" Now I can put all my classic horror knowledge to use. Keep an eye out on their blog, I hope they update soon cuz I did some pretty sweet designs!

But thats it for now. I'll post some art soonI've been really busy lately.

And also I recently made an Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=6553239
I really am in desperate need of money and my school schedule wont allow me the time to get a job. I have some one of a kind original pieces up, such as these lovely numbers....


So it would really mean alot if someone bought something puh-leeeeeeeease!
In other news I've been really busy with school and my internship at Plymptoons studios and also a secret project involving a certain web comic website. So I'll try to keep up with my posting!
Stay Spooky!
