Blockbuster Summer!

Its time for the Blockbuster Summer!!! Every year since I was a kid, the summer had always promised 4 things: No school, sun burns, watermelon and Big pop-corn movies! Some years were better than others. I'm hoping that this years theatrical shin-digs will at least be half as fun as yester-year. Transformers, Die Hard: Live Free or Die Hard, The Bourne Ultimatum, Rush Hour 3! I'm hoping that at least one of those delivers, and I'm pretty sure that at least 2 of them will.

One of those is Rush Hour 3... how can you go wrong with Jackie Chan AND Chris Tucker?!! If you liked the first 2, like I did, then odds are you'll be laughing this time come August 10th.

Transformers... I'm a little ifie about.... The Bourne Ultimatum.... I think will be very fun. As for Die Hard.... I'm a huge Die Hard fan, but this time around I miss John McClaine being in it. Some brooding shaved-headed guy has taken his spot. I'll probably wait for DVD, unless someone sees it and tells me otherwise.

Set your calendars, buy your tickets, and salt the pop-corn (light butter please)- its Blockbuster Summer once again!

I croped out what is going on in the back ground , to his right and added some sloppy gray for the post so as to not give away anything.

Just another doodle from my sketchbook. I'm really loving those COPIC markers I bought in San Diego! I even bought refill cartriges. They work great!
At the moment, most of my time is spent finishing up the coloring for "L'INFINI #3" from Humanoids Publishing (Les Humanos Associes). Its not going as fast as I would like, but I am liking the pages thus far.
Can't wait until I can post some. Maybe I can give a "sneak peek" of a panel in the next post.
By the way, I just picked up a new "Super-hero-comic" for the first time in years (well, okay maybe not that long).
One of my favorites, John Romita Jr. is drawing "World War Hulk" and it looks great!
A throw-back to the old school days of Titans slugging it out on a massive scale. I also can't help but pick up a back issue or two of Brett Blevons old work on "New Mutants". Ah.. Memories.

Summer is here! And besides being a great time for pool parties; road trips; and concerts; It's also the greatest time of year for Comic cook conventions. Many have come and gone and more are on the horizon, so many so that I am sure to miss out on. So I have been sending in my place several submissions to there Con books. One of which is the new Fur Affinity Convention that was also hosting a T-shirt contest . The image to the right is one of the spot illo's I sent (the theme of their first con. is convention activities

Its strange that an international vacation/business spot would be stationed in a desert of all places. But strange is only one word of many I can use to describe a city like Vegas.
These sketches were again drawn at the same cafe. Candid moments in Vegas captured for posterity. ( BTW, as for the title used in this post, TAGALO is the language used in the Philipines)

MATT's first post

Hello, こにちは、 my first post at INK CLOUD. Mikey encouraged me to do this as much as possible.
I'll do my best. Inbetween working on L'INFINI #3 (with Chuck Austen), I try to do some sketching
to get the ol' juices flowing. Recently COPIC greytone markers have seeped into my sketchwork.
This particular sketch(es) were done sitting in a cafe, watching interesting people walk by.
You get plenty of those in a city like Vegas.
