Hello,

The above image is a sexica drawing I did awhile back that I've just finished up.
It'll go in a girls and monsters themed art book for the Emerald city comic convention in seattle this coming March 13th & 14th, 2010 (the future)

Also I just did a new audio interview with the dudes at comicimpact
that you can listen to here:
http://comicimpact.com/2009/12/ep115-brandon-graham/
When I talked to them I was trying to turn my vampire schedule into something
that walks among mortal men so I might sound out of it.

Here's a sketchbook drawing I did today of T2 era John (savior of humanity) Connor
and his the sarah connor chronicles era sexy protector robot cameron.

It was promted by seeing this lady dressed in T2 cosplay.

And this after I was bitching about how awful it is that there always has to be a sexy lady
version of every male comic chacter. In my defense I think it'd be different if she was like belly shirt push up bra John Connor, as it is it's just badass.
I've always maintained that the mixture of time traveling robots Public enemy and GnR
that is that film is at the very core of what I consider to be cool.

Anyway there's more of that here:
http://www.cosplay.com/costume/222817/

and speaking of here's an old picture from some live action Tintin
with some sort of bong and a way too happy snowy.

And I ran into this comparison:

Apparently at some point because of French law or just some law of good taste they stopped
putting real booze names in Tintin.
I suppose that's good you dont want kids to be all about Jonnie Walker
because of their favorite boy detective.

Although on the flip side if somone claimed to have Asterix and Obelix themed
wild boars I wouldn't even be typing this right now, I'd be on a plane with a bib already tied around my neck.

Sorry, am I boaring you.

Anyway, Here's some new stuff from my pal Marley zarcone whose back up story in Images Unforgetable is out in stores now.
Here's a page from her personal far future project, Black circle.


And like that Marian, Marley has also been sucked into Dragon aids --she made this about it:


And here's some sketches she did to mail out with some book promotion or something that I didn't fully grok. Muggles draws such good faces.


And my artisticly reclusive pal Tom Herpich has got some new shits on the internet.

The whole comic is here:
http://www.viceland.com/int/v16n12/htdocs/comics-tom-herpich-286.php
and an interview
http://www.viceland.com/blogs/en/2009/12/21/gonfonadon-with-drawing-supergenius-tom-herpich/
I'm always amazed by the work Tom does. I've got a brilliant 5 page King city comic by him running in issue 9. I'll throw some of the pages from it up here as the print date nears.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My pal Robin who does the Inkstuds radio show recently did a fantastic
show with Stuart Hample, who drew the Woody Allen strips that are coming out with a new collection. The interview is just a great glimse into how comic strips used to be.

I really like the stories he has about Lil Abner creator Al Capp
you can hear it here:
http://inkstuds.com/?p=2522

Hearing it promted me to dig up this image.

I had this record as a kid and that drawing has been burned into my minds eye.
I really like how Capp drew that pig.

And I ran into these great Morinaga iodide drawings.

I hadn't head of this guys stuff, it' seems to hit on that same 1983 Akira toriyama kick that I like so much.

i like that muppet looking muppet.
What would this style of page layout be called--its like diary mishmasery--
it reminds me of Miyazaki's porko roso pages.

I think this is his site:
http://marumo.oops.jp/sakuhin/index.cgi

And this guy Shimoda Shinobu seems to be doing simmular stuff.


I am constantly amazed at how much great work there is out there that I've never
seen before. I was thinking about this when reading best of the year comic lists.
Like I feel like I read a lot of comics and I wouldnt feel qualified to know
everything good coming out.

that idea makes me dammned excited about comics--its like too much to wrap your brain around.
Actually, you know who would make a good best of the year list?

Man, I wonder what his top 10 would be--like tell me what kind of books came out in
Bizzaro world this year-- Is Bizzaro Maderera still making those Awesome books??


OH fuck you RULK!! of corse he wouldn't pick you!

Annnyyway--after those Ryoichi Ikegami Dune pictures I put up last time.
I dug up this cool spiderman he drew.


And also my King city 4 will be out today.
so get that please and thank you.

Hello,

Marian is off on island adventures and I'm home-- staying up all night to meet a cover deadline.
Here's how it came out:

It's for the issue that has a board game as part of the story--so the idea
is you can cut out different characters from the front and back cover to play it with.
I'm happy with how the price tag on this one worked out.

I just switched to larger paper for the last 30 pages of the book.
Im drawing it 2 inches bigger.
Hopefully it'll add some je ne se qua to the end of the thing.

Here's the first page of issue 12. (still the old size paper)
ass and hummus--


And a page out of my sketchbook.
on the left is me in Marians dads sweater that I refuse to take off in this icy cold
canadian weather.


Here's a KC drawing the late great Mike Wieringo did after the first book came out.
This picture was/is a big deal for me.
he drew Joe so good looking and the cat so surley.


I was reading an old Moebius interview he said "being an artist you have one foot
in eternity and one foot in the real world."- made it think about what of your work gets left beind after you're gone. As much as I might just leave the world a million fart puns richer--
It's exciting to think about. Like how much personality Bode put into his one page strips
this stuff sticks around.

anywayy--I've been looking at a lot of Ronald D-pi Wimberly's stuff this week. That dude makes such cool pages. I like these pages from a Jessica Abel story he drew.
man, that logo--

soo good.
The rest of it's here:
http://d-pi.com/dtv/graphix/short-cuts/the-beautiful-ones/

And I ran into these pages from World Apartment Horror. I guess it's a manga adaption
of a live action Otomo movie that another artist drew. I know very little about it but I like the pages.


Here's the first chunk of it in Italian:
http://www.nonsolomanga.it/manga2/otomo_wah.htm

and some pages from a collection of short stories called presentforme.

I like dude's parachute helmet. Even if its not too efective.

more of it up here in Chinese
http://comic.131.com/content/58/175/1.html

And here's a drawing of a cat that I thought was cool.


And I ran into this crazy shit in an old Shonen jump.
so -this menacing dude shows up to show off his incredibly well trained bats.
and how does he repay them?

what a dick. bat eating dick.
This is the type of shit I imagine goes on at burning man.

And here's a Tintin parody from a 1990 Watson Portello comic called Inferno.

I like seeing tintin with a beard.

And here's some Somerset Homes pages that I liked the layouts of.
It's cool to see storytelling being played with this much in this style.



and here's another Japanese dune picture. the David Lynch stuff.
I always think of this version when I think of Dune--
man that Baron Harkonnen looks even grosser in that middle drawing.
like sun burned boils.


and some rad Birth tape covers.


and captain futureee with his front heavy space shark.


Aight--Ive been up way too long.
