It’s late, didn’t get home till too late to do any real drawing. So, here’s a quickie of a guy sockin’ a nun.

Naked Ladies OMG!

August 6th, 2008 by

Day 2 of actually drawing on the cintiq, and it’s even more fun. Why, you ask? In a sketchpad, or on any piece of paper, eventually you make a bad decision and place a drawing badly and ruin any extra space you may have had. Not so anymore! Just zoom in until the free space fills the entire screen and you still have an entire blank page to sketch on! That’s why one or two of the women on this practice piece is made of thinner lines than the others. For these references, I used the (beware: nudity!)Beauty of the Day archive on DOMAI. I’m out of practice, so I’m sure these drawings aren’t as good as they could be, but I’ll get there!

As I just got the coolest digital drawing tool in the free world, here are some doodles. Think I finally have a good face for Jesus, too, for a project that has been in the works for a long time. I like the idea of a jesus that’s “with it” just enough to use some swears.

Jesus and some random doodles

Here’s some panels from a comic I am working on.  Just a one shot, 5 or 6 panels at the most.  They may or may not ruin the joke(?), but I don’t care, wanted to show it off as I haven’t done anything in ages.

Fábrica de Heróis

Fábrica de Heróis

Using the little flash app at the bottom of that page, I made Ultra Hitler. I even made him a snazzy logo.

Hitler- faster stronger

Ultra Hitler loves lookin good

After his right hand betrayed him and attempted to shoot him with his own gun, he had it removed and replaced with an atomic-powered hand created by Ernst Heinkel. Heinkel was working on nuclear powered robots when not researching propulsion for the Luftwaffe and Adolf liked where the future was heading. The atomic power source for the hand is contained in the pack on his back, which, through the miracle of radiation, has caused him to retain his youthful good looks and gain immense strength. He’s still a fan of khaki, but can you blame him when it looks so good? We look forward to seeing him fulfill his potential.

life is pain – thieves

April 20th, 2008 by

First, remember this? I did it a long time ago, sometime in 2003. Very few people know that I created the life is pain animation that loads of folks use for their avatars.

As I was browsing through an issue of Game Informer magazine, I happened across an advertisement for that junk you can download for your phone. You know, they charge you to text some number and they’ll send you a wallpaper or screen saver or a joke. I usually pass over this stuff, but I just happened to look at the bottom right of the page.

Stolen avatar

What? Jamster stole my art? Jamster stole my life is pain animation! They barely even tried to make it something else. How blatant can you be? Look, I even found it on their page. Since their page is slow as well, I downloaded it for you. I’ll even put mine next to it.

Stolen animation made crappy

It’s blue and only slightly different from mine. The animation is crappy, it’s blue, and the L is capitalized. Wows.  It’s okay that it says “preview” on there, because you know what?  Mine is better animated and not stolen!  Holy shit!  I can make you a black one with electric-blue guys on it.  Real easy too!  Just ask.


I’ve put this image on a shirt before anyone else tries to steal it from me. It’s just a men’s style shirt, but it looks good on ladies, too, as seen below. Click on through consider supporting me with a shirt purchase!

If you put in the ‘notes’ field that you came from here, I’ll include an original drawing! Mention ‘thieves’ or ‘’ in the NOTES field on the checkout page.

Past few days

Here’s what I’ve been up to. That’s the car’s bumper that hit me wrapped around my tire there.


There are more photos here.  I am alive and in pretty good shape, other than some back pain and neck pain.  Hooray.

Mall Employees

June 14th, 2007 by

Haven’t posted anything for a couple days because I haven’t even been home at a decent hour. Been looking at places to live. Also haven’t produced anything at work too good lately either. EXCEPT TODAY! But you’ll have to wait a bit to see it. Brought my Burne Hogarth book to work and tried to make my sketches for the next AIR comic more dynamical. It looks better. Enjoy this for now and leave me some comments. Be constructive.

AIR #52 Redux

June 10th, 2007 by

Alright. Who knows how this is gonna work out in the future, but here’s a comic I added a few tones to and changed the way the mall employees’ outfits look. You can see how it looked originally below. I fixed the hell out of it with some fancy lamp posts and darkening up the parking lot asphalt. That stuff is usually black. I finally got the EX version of the ol’ Manga Studio, made some lamp posts in Blender and imported them. Made some much better parking lot spaces with the perspective tool and uploaded it to replace the original. The perspective tool is amazing. That alone is worth the extra money from the Debut version. I’m happier with the way it looks and I’m gonna do it with the other ones. Let me know what you thinks.

The original:

The new one is on the comic page:

Here are more sketches I made at work yesterday.

The arrow in the first sketch is pointing at a sketch of a person. There is a woman at work who is shaped like that. Gross. Second one shows layout for AIR #55. Third page shows 2 kuss-tome-air heads.

Hand practice!

June 4th, 2007 by

Here are a whole bunch of hands. I have a book of hands by Bridgman that is just great. I brought it to work and drew from it trying to figure out why the hands looked the way they do. Then I tried to draw hands on my own. If you look at the hands from comic #48 on through the current comic, #54, you can see how much I’ve improved from the practice and studying. Here are a bunch of my practice slash study pages.

In the first page you can see a better sketch of the layout for comic #54, which turned out better than I expected. It took quite a while to get them tones to look the way they do, which is minimal, but decent. I’m not sure who all those sketches are of in the last 2 pages, other than the girl employee. I did a whole bunch of stuff at work today that I will scan in tomorrow, including the Kuss-tome-airs, and some sad looking fat guy with skinny legs what resembles a woman at work. EWW!
