Happy Holidays, Bleep

I just wanted to wish everybody a Happy Holidays and a Merry Christmas. As usual, I didn't get around to making a proper card this year. Maybe next year... sniff.

I will be taking the next two weeks off and spending some quality time with my family. I will be traveling a bit. I will be putting together a lot of toys. I will be eating way too much food. Hopefully I can blog a little, but the posts will be few and far between. I will return to a normal schedule on January 5th.

Everyone be safe, and enjoy this time with your friends and family. After all, these are the moments we will look back on when we are old and crusty, and wish we had back.

The Holiday Throw Down

Hey everybody! I have been away from the blog for two whole mornings, and it hurt me. One of those mornings I visited the Georgia DMV so that I might get my official Georgia drivers license. It was fun, and I loved their choice to stick with vintage technology. Like their computers. Which had to be from around 1989.

Also while I was away... it seems my friend Bryan Ballinger was giving me the old artistic smack down with the above drawing over on his blog. Of course, he was retaliating against me throwing snow balls at him in an earlier post. While attacking the Vanhoozerbot with Santa Claus was a crafty move, I don't think he really understands what he is getting himself into...

Because see.... Vanhoozerbot will promptly use his powerful "reverse flying goldfish" move, and re-direct the Christmas Revenge Power Ray right back at the crusty Claus. With the not so jolly fat man left sizzling in the snow, there was really only one more thing to do...

... take out the the elves.

Take that Bryan.... and Merry Christmas!

What's The Matter Boy?

A happy Monday to you all. Always remember... it could be worse. Aliens could be invading. Well, I guess if aliens were invading with the desire to load us up with all kinds of awesome technology... that would actually be better. Ok, just assume that the aliens were invading with the very strong desire to zap our brains and enslave our pets. That would be worse than a Monday.

The Gift

"Who would be downstairs at this hour?"

We are getting close to Christmas! It is hard to believe how fast it is approaching. Happy Friday to all, and I hope you have a great weekend. I have been making good progress on my story, so look for some big chunks of art from that project in January. Also, I will be revealing the title and logo for the book as well. See... reasons to stick around next year. Until then, you will most likely get a variety of doodles here on the blog. Hopefully that will be ok.
Again, have a pleasant weekend.

"Lets nail him when he passes that tree... ok!? And waaaaaayyyy over there is Suzy Jenkins leaving for school. She told the entire lunch room that I had cooties... so lets put three slush balls right it her wheelhouse okay?"

Anything Glowy Has Got To Be Awesome

Today is Friday. Friday is a fun day. This drawing had no planned destination, but it was a fun exploration. I am knee deep in a bunch of work here at CN, as well as being heavily involved in writing my story at home. This morning I just needed to come in and make a bit of a mess. Mission accomplished! I hope everybody has a great weekend.

Robots Like Cookies Too

We are having a game themed bake sale/donate your old games event here at the studio, and I roughed out a flyer idea this morning. It will benefit the good people over at Child's Play. Let me know if you want me to save you a Tetris brownie.
p.s. Type still needs to be added... burp.

Christmas Adjustment

I couldn't help myself. I was listening to Christmas music... and feeling like I should do SOMETHING. Ha. Every Christmas eve, before he takes off on his famous flight, Santa gives each of his robot helpers an upgrade as a gift. I wonder what this little guy is getting?

Death From Above

In the (so close to getting a title) story, the main character (so close to getting a name) is a pilot during World War 2. In giving him a plane, I want to use real aircraft with a bit of an exaggerated twist. I chose the already intimidating P-40 Warhawk, and gave it a bit of cartoon flair. In the end I may even push the design further, but for now we are at least on track.

Back In The Saddle

Ahhh..... back from the holiday break. It was great to take some time off and spend it with the family. I am now looking forward to getting some solid work done between now and Christmas, both at the office and on my story. I also need to do a few Christmas drawings here and there to get into the spirit. May we all have a productive week!
