City of Cards page 19: Here!

Nothing sketched up this week but I've got a few photos from my trip to the LA Zoo a couple of weeks back:

 It was an awesome day. I got to hang with my awesome buddy Ruth, the weather was gorgeous, and the animals were actually awake. That, and the sheer number of frolicking baby animals was also bonus.

By far, though, this was the best thing there:

Killer deer. How bad ass is that?

Anyway, what's next for me? Well, in one month I'll be out of my apartment and counting down the days till I'm off to Seattle, but that's also had me thinking. There's a not so secret project of mine that I've been floating around with a few people and one thing I want to do for it is to interview cartoonists as I make my way across the country. I just got myself a small video camera so that's at least step one taken care of.

I haven't plotted out my route yet, but as I do I'm going to be seeing if anyone along the way will be interested in giving me a chat and letting showcase their work. I think it'll be a great opportunity for everyone involved.

City of Cards page 18: Here!

A couple more lucha sketches to start things off:

The goal is to have the lucha comic I'm working on ready for SPX, or at least before I have to head out to the great Pacific Northwest.

No surprise to many people who know me, I've been a bit of a lurker on the website and the guys there have put together a rather nice tribute to recently departed b3tan Darklord. So if you fancy a bit of house music, check out this Youtube playlist. It's definitely worth a listen.

Next, a video I can't stop watching/listening to: Goldfish - We Come Together

And even though Father's Day has passed, this is a great video with a couple of great dads: Holy Ghost! - Wait & See

Can I Get an Amen?

City of Cards page 17: Here!

In the immortal words of the great RuPaul: "If you can't love yourself, how in the Hell are you gonna love somebody else?"

I was hoping to get more done this past week but it's been kinda crazy. My tablet is starting to act up and threaten to die on me so I dropped some cash and have a replacement coming to make sure I can keep things moving on.

The plan now is to get ready for the big move back across the states to the Seattle area. I've got a few more plans in the works so we'll see where things go in the next few months! A few things are for sure: more City of Cards, more lucha, and more baking!

Next, I want to shout out to an upcoming movie that I think a lot of people I know will enjoy called Monster Brawl. It's got classic movie monsters fighting in a no-holds-barred wrestling style arena. It's got Dave Foley, Kevin Nash, Jimmy Hart, Art Hindle... I mean, come on! This is B-Movie gold right here.

Also, I want one of these.

Busy with a kinda last minute trip to LA this week so I don't have anything scanned but life is feeling pretty good right now. It's all about having a mission plan!

Going to the zoo tomorrow~!

For Every Technico there is a Rudo

City of Cards pages 14-15: Here!

So I keep saying that there is going to be more lucha on my blog, and trust me, there will be a lot more if things keep going the way they're going. First, a quick sketch of my first rudo:

I've got big plans for this guy.

More will probably be revealed over the next several months, but the main focus is still City of Cards.

Other than that, I'm still starting to slowly accept the slow parting of friends to different corners of the world and enjoying all the fond farewells in the forms of pie, mini golf, cartoons, and general shenanigans. You guys are awesome.

Also, here's a few more webcomics I've been reading. Vague warnings about mature content, foul language, adult situations, puns, what have you but they're good:

Boxer Hockey: Boxer Hockey, it's a sport, with frogs, and sometimes there's a bear and also shenanigans. Honestly, it's pretty popular already but if you haven't read it it's worth a go. It definitely builds momentum as you keep reading. It also updates really infrequently so patience is worthwhile. Also, I kinda hope that fancy southern cat shows up again.

The Less than Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal: This would be a guilty pleasure if it wasn't so damn good. Seriously, it's worth it for the gorgeous scenery if nothing else. Plot? So far, two guys go on a road trip and sometimes they stare longingly into each others' eyes in between witty banter at truck stops. It's fun, it's cute, and I have a big soft spot for it.

Happle Tea: Cute comic that is often about mythology and sometimes it isn't. The art is cute, sometimes the blog entries are informative, and I like it. Not much to say about this one beyond that.

Flea Toon: It's a comic about two dots that make puns. Just... just read it. This one goes out to Alec Longstreth.
