Friday So FRESH

Hey Guys! So I've had an interesting couple of days ending tonight with a major breakthrough. First, on Wednesday night, I underwent a back injury that was actually caused by a minor movement (lol). Not only did it cause me to drop to the ground, but it also caused me to lose 15.5 hours at work. And I need every hour I can get. BUT now my back is actually recovering quite well and I hope it continues to.

So I'm sure most of you know by now, I am working on a project with whom you know, Jess "Rambo" Ramsey, called Blazer Show. This idea was born in 2008 and after 4 years, we have finally completed the main cast's finalization thanks to Kameele Rivera and her talents. Finalized to the characters' design to their color.

So ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, the Blazer Show!

Left to Right: Vinny, Kristie, Noel, G, Jess, and Nosey

I think it's safe to say that some of our future goals are to complete all the character bibles, beginning storyboard process, and to come up with an opening (intro) idea for the show. And I must say, I am very excited about this even slowly coming together. You can find us on Facebook, so don't be shy to say hello. =)

An Idea Lit Like A Candle

Hello Friends! So for a day or two, I came up with this fun little idea and then thought of another idea similar to the first. The first idea was to have friends or family take and send a casual self portrait of yourself and I would basically "zombify" you in the style I drew the "It's Zombie Time" picture.. Sounds fun right? And then, another idea similar to that would be to take a photo of whomever and turn one half of or the entire person into a cartoon.

If anything, I'll probably do both, I feel it would be a fun project and it could help me improve my "style". So if there's any takers, you can just email any picture that you would prefer to be used as a reference or unless you don't care and I can just pick one myself from your Facebook page cuz you know, that's totally not creepy at all, right? Lol So yeah, if you wanna send any pics, send them to

That's all I got for now, I figured I'd announce my new project ideas to you guys before I forget them. =b I'll catch you all on the flip side, Peace!

Change is Near but Stress is Here

Trying to stay positive is all I can do. Soon enough my family and I will have to vacate this house that I very much grew up in. My brother and I are in search for apartments relatively nearby with one potential place (as far as I know) that may accept us. But who knows.

Obviously, I am still working on portfolio material while I am searching for a 2nd part time job or even a better paying part time or full time job. And just when I thought things were stressful enough, my truck breaks down with a result of a thousand dollar bill. Every time I think about my situation, my stress level continues to rise which, embarrassingly, makes me wanna run to my girlfriend for emotional support like a troubled little boy running to his mommy.

The only good news I can think of is that I'm still alive, I'm still with my girlfriend, my bro and I ARE getting our truck back, and I gained 8 more hours to my work schedule at Michaels.

I practically spent my evening today job hunting, updating my account on those job sites, sent out resumes and links to my online portfolio, and I even posted up an ad on Craigslist.

It's moments like this that make me think that I have failed myself. And the only way I could prove myself wrong is by continuing to keep trying. Hopefully, things WILL get better soon to the point where I can sit at my "new" home and work on all my projects with a stress free mind set.

That's all I got to say for tonight, I hope all is well for Everyone else. Good night.

The Time Has Come...

Hey Guys! Right, right, I know, I know it's been a long time. But I did say the next blog post would have the end result of an illustration. And it is done. I have to say, it was really hard not to post up other progressions because the more that was done, the better it was looking and the more excited I was becoming. And I know my fellow zombie killin brethren were fairly stoked about how it was coming out.

So here it is everybody and I hope you all will like it..

So there ya have it, and again I really hope you guys dig it. I worked really hard for this idea to come out cuz believe it or not, I've been wanting to draw this out for quite awhile now and it's finally done. Lol And also, just last night, I finally took the opportunity to sketch out these 3 concepts of a friend's character. I, basically redrew his character in different poses, tried to show a little more attitude and stuff through his poses and he said he liked them so that's good to hear.

Here are the sketches I did to the left of the original..

So that's all I have for you guys. These next couple of weeks are gonna be busy and rough, due to the fact that me and my family have to vacate the house by April 1st, I think. And my bro and I are still lookin for a place and yeah. It's rough. But I gotta keep busy and keep my head up, right? So that's what I'm gonna do. I'll catch you all later with some more stuff. Peace!
