Here are some old expressions from earlier this year.

Quick one for today.

Art school starts tommorow.

It'll be intense and I won't be able to update here as much. Here's one for the road. Truth be told I'm not 100% happy with it, but I really like the perspective.


P.S The back side of comic book shop boards (the kind they put the comics you buy on) make pretty cool drawing surfaces.

Watercolor.


The colored version of that lizard drawing I did a while back ago.


This is watercolor on illustration board.

Some cartoon head sketches.


With classes at Laffa coming up I've been practicing alot of more realistic drawing. These sketches were a chance to jump back into making cartoony looking drawings.

Genocide in Darfur Sudan.



One of the things that's really bugged me in recent times is the popular American media's willingness to report meaningless celebrity gossip and by and large overlook truely important stories like this. That's where this piece came from, an illustration project that was motivated by my anger over the apathy of the press towards all of this suffering.

The Darfur conflict is an ongoing armed conflict in the Darfur region of western Sudan, mainly between the Janjaweed (translated: "devils on horseback"), a militia group recruited from the tribes of the Abbala Rizeigat (camel-herding Arabs), and the non-Baggara people (mostly land-tilling tribes) of the region. The Sudanese government, while publicly denying that it supports the Janjaweed, has provided money and assistance and has participated in joint attacks with the group, systematically targeting the Fur, Zaghawa, and Massaleit ethnic groups in Darfur.[1] The conflict began in July 2003. Unlike in the Second Sudanese Civil War, which was fought between the primarily Muslim north and Christian and Animist south, in Darfur most of the residents are Muslim, as are the Janjaweed. Estimated number of deaths in the conflict vary widely. Most NGOs use 400,000, a figure from the Coalition for International Justice that has since been cited by the United Nations. As many as 2.5 million are thought to have been displaced as of October 2006.
The mass media once described the conflict as both "ethnic cleansing" and "genocide," and now do so without hesitation. The United States government has described it as genocide, although the United Nations has declined to do so.

It's obvious that more attention needs to given to what's going on there.

Me and the wizard.


Size comaprison.

Just so you can get an idea of how big the final drawing was.

Drawings I did for a client.



Not that I ended up getting paid for it (I told my former teacher and friend Charles about it yesterday.) Oh well I think they're nice drawings anyway.
