So, a late night idea that I had, that’s way too late to be very relevant, was crossing over the comic series made movie famous, “The Avengers,” with the crazy book made tv famous, the HBO series “Game of Thrones.” The idea came to me while I was watching an animated movie about Thor. During [...]
So, a couple years back, I saw a poster come into my Tumblr feed that I absolutely fell in love with. I didn’t love the poster because of the obvious high-value craftsmanship that went into creating it, or even because the subject of the poster was something as kickass as a samurai. I loved it [...]
Photomanipulation stuff that got me wanting to use Photoshop more, again. There is probably more to come…
I’ve been making things, just not as much, and haven’t been as interested in sharing them with the internet as I probably should be. Anyhow, this poster is all about my warrior character in the MMORPG, Rift. Fun times.
My latest commissioned work is an implementation of the client’s ideas, and not so much of my own. This process felt much more like being a forensic sketch artist than a designer. A bit more back and forth than I would like, but, hey, a satisfied customer is a satisfied customer.
It’s that time, again… Time for me to pull my head up out of the sand trap that is my blindingly suffocating work schedule and get together with some friends and family to make a little music. This Saturday, I’ll be joining my cousin and his band, Dogs @ Lunch, at the Cadillac Ranch in [...]
I have ideas. I daydream. I do. Many times, I have ideas for stories and think of the various formats these stories could be presented in. I think of possible movies and video games, but a lot of times, I think of possible children’s books.
One such idea involves these nondescript, furry balls and the various [...]
I believe that every person on the planet is linked. Humans are social creatures, and as such, we all survive the world, together. It is this notion that drives us to save not only ourselves, but each other, from certain damnation and is what allows philanthropic causes to exist. One such cause I helped to [...]
This week has been great. Spring is making a come back, and though there has been some rain, the water has only helped to make everything outside look fantastic along with the comfortable temperature and bright sun. I finally built up the motivation to take a few pictures I’ve been meaning to take for a [...]
Well, it’s that time of year, again … my favorite economist has gained another year of intellectual prowess and might as well have another poster dedicated to him, if for nothing else, just to motivate him to continue being awesome.
Here’s to you Stuclach!
So, I’m into zombies … if you didn’t know, already. One thing that always bothered me about popular theories of how zombies happen is that they revolve around viruses. The biologist in me wants to explore this more, though, instead of just writing it off as plausible. So, I’ve decided that viruses are a plausible [...]
So, I finally got the vectors done on this. I’m not ashamed to say that it took a good, long time. Unfortunately, I’m not sure if it’s the lack of sleep or lack of vision, but I’m drawing blanks on composition.
Any help, guys?
Info on the piece:
The saxophone is a Selmer Paris Series III that was [...]
So, last night at trivia, one of the answers was Deepwater Horizon of infamous BP Oil Spill fame. Just hearing the name, again, put an image in my mind and I had to get it out. So, this is pretty much what my head-brain-eye saw.
Well, I guess the whole retro-console-diagramming thing from yesterday might become something of a series with me. I like to find formulas, as blah as that may sound, but it keeps it interesting. Maybe this time I’ll be able to continue a series and develop it as I go along. Already between the last piece [...]
Yes, you read the title correctly. This image is not in my normal dimensions, as you may have noticed. It’s based on l-vanpelt’s work. I tried to think about which console would be the coolest to do first in this style, which lead me to the Famicom Disk System. I made this because of pacalin’s [...]
This is pretty self-explanatory, I think. There was extra time, I was bored, so I did something. Here it is.
So, I read an article (linked from Reddit) about “The Chemist’s War” during America’s national prohibition of alcohol. Looks like no one talks about it much, but the U.S. Government would poison some alcohol in an effort to deter some citizens from drinking it. This lead to more than one thousand deaths rather than mild [...]
Per request of @PoeGhostal, I have done another version of the “I Like Your Stiles” poster.
Go Teen Wolf!
Per request of @PoeGhostal, I have done another version of the “I Like Your Stiles” poster, which will be published in about 30 minutes, but it prompted me to also do a Julia Stiles version.
I got the idea for this when I was looking up a source on a graphic I saw and liked. The research tracking lead me to a forum that was full of many different photos, .GIF animations and such. I saw the tagline on someone’s signature and decided I had to make a poster. DONE!
So, today was just any other normal day. I was doing work at my desk, while working on a few side projects at the same time. Every so often, during my days, I see what’s happening in the realm of twitter and other things interweb. Actually, we all know that’s a lie… I’m constantly monitoring [...]
Made this graphic quick and easy-like to go with #HighFiveFriday, the new #FollowFriday a lot of us on Twitter decided to start using.
All in all, it is pretty much the same thing, but #FollowFriday has become jaded and meaningless. Now, we have motivation behind who we recommend for others to check out, plus, it makes [...]
Yes, yet another graphic done in the style of Stéphane Massa-Bidal’s retro-futuristic designs.
After I made one for Newsweek, I didn’t want to leave Popular Science out of the fun! PopSci will always be awesome in my eyes because of being, well, scientific and geeky, and because of this guy.
I admit that this graphic is kind of morose, but it’s much more toned down than my original concept. What’s it all about? Well, I can’t really sugar-coat it. It’s about a kid chewing on explosive bubble-gum and blowing his jaw off. Here’s where I first published the graphic and the news.
