Girl Trouble

New pages!! Yes!!! 4 luscious, juicy black and whites here. I had alot of fun doing these.
I based the girl's likeness after the sultry songstress Eryka Badu and those fabulous wigs.
The cat was an extra.

"Diary of the Dead" and stuff

Yesterday, Matt, Joel, and I went to see a sneak-peak of George Romero's "Diary of the Dead". I love George Romero's work and happen to own all of his flicks, but I really doubt this was a straight Romero piece.
The story didn't add to the world that it's creator has spent a good portion of his life making. And listening to the response from the croud around me, seemed only to exist for those who love to see blood and killing. Now some who don't know me, might think I'm a little too sensitive to such stuff. True fact of the matter is though, I am not. I just watched the new Rambo and despite its extreme nature, the film never glorified the acts of violence diplayed but portrayed them as the reality of that world the story took place in. Big difference, to killing as of yet to be zombies , brutally for fun. I get real irritated about this ; mostly because I think this kind of entertainment creates the warped and cruel generation , we see coming up , today!

Keep drawing and having fun doing it!

Remember when every drawing you did was a struggle? Anybody remember that feeling?
Great, Huh?! Youv'e gotten to love these moments. Because youv'e learned that just when you were about to break through to another level in your art they'd come. And the realization of that just made everything at that moment more exciting! A hundred bad drawings to get that break through one hundred and one great one!
Yeah...I'm feeling it! (HEH-HEH)
So here it is, a heads up to my next breakthrogh in the making, drawing 88...89..!! (Ha-Ha)
I can see that wall starting to chip! I'm breaking through!
See ya on the other side, my buds!- Mikey
