i wish i had more time to run around and take pics in the fog.
(since it is so rare)
well last night was 'super street fighter 2 turbo hd' remix night.
im now 10-15 on the leaderboards,
and i plan to keep playing tonight.

what to do with the blank sheet of paper in front of me.
i also have a 3foot x 15 foot roll i could start on too.
its tempting to do the big one,
but i think i have to work on smaller ones to get experience.

time to think....
and fight!

younger and stronger!

heres the drawing as of just before the weekend.
this weekend was interesting.
saturday was street fighter 4 during the day
and ufc by night.
damn....was hoping for experience to pull thru.
i feel for couture...
i hate it when it when the fight
was decided not by skill,
but by size.
sure lesnar won,
but i dont think he deserved that fight.
all of the hard work by other fighters and everyone
behind him in history...
but i guess thats why i like the sport as well...
anything can happen.
the whole card was pretty good,
finishes all over the place.
one guy i didnt like was jorge gurgel.
a jiu-jitsu black belt who decides to punch his way thru everything.
its painful trying to watch this.
sunday was super quiet...
chilliin and listening to tunes,
and pounding away at this drawing.
i try to put the time in when i should be doing real life ish.
something inspirational...
i watch biggest loser every week,
and in alot of ways i feel for everyone on that show,
since im going thru the same battle.
i wish i had all day to lose weight.
and the money for someone to kick my ass,
and teach me how to really change my life.
but im going to try and not let life pass me by.
gotta continue to read health books,
get creative with the daily routine,
and stop bein a bee-itch about life.
the key to change doesnt start on january 1st '09,
with new years resolutions....
word out.

this weekend was super productive,
i have a 1 inch strip down the right side of the drawing.

two of two!

heres the second update...
i have more done since this pic.
the pens mark where the edge of the paper is.
ive benn out of the concept/digital painting scene for about 4 years....
in the last couple of days,
ive been catching up with those sites and seeing what the
latest trends are.
places like, or deviantart were the usual places,
but i recently stumbled on, and some of the
zbrush and mudbox forums.
so many talents out there,
and ill try to gather up some favs, and post em soon.
word out.

one of two!

heres the drawing as of last week.
tommorrow, ill try to post the drawing as of a couple of days ago.
ive got the right edge to work on, and a 2 inch strip along the top.
so close to the finish line....its ridiculous.
and then what...oof.
time to think about number 3,
and possible themes.
im considering doing 8 instead of 6,
and the first 2 will be considered as warm-up/
throw away images.
but we shall see how things go over the next year.
heres some current photo influences,
as far as what i would like to eventually shoot.
i just bought his book (sao paulo - yes the one with tha ass)
last weekend and its great.
joel meyerowitz video
heres another photographer thats awesome....
i wish i could afford his last book "aftermath" (a book on 9/11).
joe holmes
i visit this site once a week...
reminds me of my trip to nyc and i wish i could be back there.

whooo..tubleweed throughout the company today.
its rememberance day and i took yesterday off
instead of today.
kinda weird sitting there with not alot of people there.

today i spent reflecting on what i should do next since
(at work) im inbetween projects.
i think its time to start drawing at work as well as draw at home.
spent most of today looking and other peoples art blogs and going from link to link to link.
saga of seven was one of the blogs found today.
i think i have to go back to finding inspiration and spreading it around.

mk ultra mike huddleston
eric canete ive posted this link before, but i havent been there in a while.
katie rice is another link ive posted before,
but i think im going to post stuff that i am currently looking at.
maybe tomorrow it will be current photo stuff.

long weekend for me....
friday was gears of war 2 play...
saturday was checkin out the new stussy store.
(open for reals this time)
then it was a gears horde mode marathon which was cool.
sunday was taking the time to rearrange my drawing setup.
i gots my books setup better and tv + music setup for ambience.
ready to rock ish out.
today was getting a good chunk of this drawing done.
(which reminds me i gotta take another picture)
also another street fighter 4 session.
its good to be back in the arcade,
and i dont care how loser-ish it might sound,
but i like to live out my days as a teenager more often.
just an update for the moment...

truckin along!


obama on tha takeover!
hopefully he follows thru with 'change'.
cant really trust politcians...
but its also the whole system.
nothing can go thru without a long process.
which reminds me, i gotta stop watching us news,
and stick to canadian and local news.
damn the internet and cable tv.

well im keeping the course to finish this drawing,
its closer to finished than i tought.
maybe a couple of weeks out.

currently playing:
rock band 2 (xbox 360)
guitar hero: world tour (xbox 360)
nba 2k9 (xbox 360)
warioland: shake it! (nintendo wii)
ninja commando (nintendo wii virtual console)
ninja combat (nintendo wii virtual console)

aero garment
x'd out
as much as i love fighting games and sports....
tonight its red vs blue.
hopefully blue takes over,
but who knows.
early polls suggest landslide,
but even then....
i loved nbc declaring winners of republican states
with 0% of the votes in. wtf?
i guess theres no way alabama will vote democrat.
also, with some senators were declared with only 2%
of the votes reported in.
something fishy going on...
either that, or nbc is poor at explaining how
the projections work.

heres a shot of the drawing at its current state.
you can also see a now doubtful entry into
the street fighter contest.
ive got til the 7th, and i dont think i can hit the date.
i could probably put up a halfway coloring job, but meh.
im tired of halfway shizz.
anyways, its time to buck up and work on the main drawing.
i think i will finish the sf drawing later on,
but i need to keep working away at the big one.

this weekend was pretty quiet.
no haloween parties, just chill.
saturday was some mild drinkin and chatting.
sunday was hanging out, and fighting off a mild sickness.
success! now that i am living heathier,
i think i can easily fight this crap off,
cause i feel good today.
now its time to work on this drawing tonight....
