Better late than never (so long as "late" is still "Friday").
 
FRIDAY FANART NUMBER 37! IT’S MISSINGNO!

“Since our travels took us to smaller islands off the coast of the mainland on which we were currently stranded, I have been suffering the strangest of dreams. I am mostly unsettled by mysterious and unnatural shapes finding their way into the hazy visions of my slumber. Only recently have they began to take concrete form as our travels take us back to the coasts of those very same islands.

In one unfortunately vivid vision, I saw a great mass of flesh arise from the coast, a twisting mass of melting animal. It stared at me, a small and insignificant speck relative to its enormity. In the dream, it granted me riches beyond my imagination.

Upon awaking, however, I found my right leg marked by what appeared to be the grip of a sea-beasts tentacled appendage. My door was still locked from the inside, and according to our translator, no one had seen me leave my cabin for the entirety of my sleep.”

From “H.P. Lovecraft’s Pokæ-Beasts of the Orient: A Codex of Nature Gone Awry in the East”. Missingno had to happen, and how else are you to render a pile of magical pixels and erroneous game data that give you wondrous prizes? Furthermore, if captured, this thing could Cut, Fly, AND Surf; I kinda had to incorporate that somehow.

This one I kind of had to get out of the way. I could have made it more disturbing by making it more phallic...but I really didn't want to do that, and the Internet should be grateful for that.
 
FRIDAY FANART NUMBER 36! IT’S ONYX!

“Called a name by the heathen residents of this foul land that I am told means 'rock whale', this monstrosity tunnels through mountains, using its chisel-like horn to wedge its mass between faults in the rocks. It is very rarely seen, and very few are believed to exist. Some folklore speaks of this thing devouring entire villages with its long, shovel-like jaw.”

From “H.P. Lovecraft’s Pokæ-Beasts of the Orient: A Codex of Nature Gone Awry in the East”. Right now I'm trying to dig through the first 151 to see if there are any one-shot Pokemon I've missed. I've still got some evolutionary cleanup, particularly with the starters, last week's Geodude, and I still have to fit Persian in somewhere. Which ones have I missed?

My dad and I have history with the Bat-Man.

Over twenty years ago, I saw another Batman movie with my dad.

...yeah, yeah, I know. I'm still doing this. I'll stop. Eventually.
 
FRIDAY FANART NUMBER 35! IT’S GEODUDE!

“Our path was occasionally darkened by treacherous treks through and around mountains where this particular monstrosity was relatively common. It made no sound of its own, save for the haunting, grating sound of its stone-like skin dragging across the rock and dirt. Our guides informed us that it is indeed blind, but uses the vibrations of its surroundings to find prey. When asked about the purpose of its seemingly-useless legs attached to its misshapen and twisted form, our Oriental traveling companion simply replied, 'For later.'"

From “H.P. Lovecraft’s Pokæ-Beasts of the Orient: A Codex of Nature Gone Awry in the East”. This one's been a long time coming. I have ideas as to what I'm doing with the later forms, but I felt it important to focus on Geodude alone. Conceptually, Geodude is already a little weird: a floating stone head with large, muscular man-arms portruding from the sides. How do I make this creepier? Add a little bulldog to the mix and give him MODOK-esque baby legs.

Gross.
 
FRIDAY FANART NUMBER 34! IT’S WEEZING!

“Every so often, we were greated by this thing of things, supposedly an 'adult' form of a similar creature I had seen previously. It makes no sound, but its constantly-shifting shape spoke volumes of the pain its in.

It was at this point in my travels that I began to notice the human characteristics of the Oriental beasts of this heathen land. The part of my discovery that remains the most disturbing, however, is that the locals seemed to either not notice or to not care.

Something is amiss.”

From “H.P. Lovecraft’s Pokæ-Beasts of the Orient: A Codex of Nature Gone Awry in the East”. There are a number of 'em that I've done that don't include all evolutions on the same page. I'm trying to correct that. Gotta fit Persian in somehow, as well as the later forms of the starters (and even though it's part of the 152-251 group, Magby). Weezing, though, deserved a solo spot. Theoretically, it's pretty messed up already: three heads joined only to one another. How can I improve? By making it a plot point in the INCREDIBLY loose story I'm building.

Sometimes, I make the things I say I will. This is one of those times.
 
Rude Awakening, Interstitial 2. This takes place between issues 6 and 7 (released...soon...ish?).

Here we have our big bad, who will, for now, go nameless. There are plans within plans. Gears are turning. Shit's gettin' real.

Yes. I'm making self-involved, narcissistic content again.

This can be both a good thing and an awful thing for the rest of you.
 
SURPRISE! CONTENT ON A MONDAY! The sixth installment of Rude Awakening is here! Just when you thought I’d given up on it. Like everything else.

ANYWAYS. Here I do some more worldbuilding to better flesh out where I want this series (and my life) to go. That said, my…personal plans have changed a bit over the course of making this installment. I’ve gotta tweak the script for number 7 a bit to reflect that, but I think the outcome will be a little stronger as a result of things in real life. Stay tuned for an Interstitial in the next couple days that introduces the “Big Bad” of the piece. HINT: It’s not my dad; I’m not that much of a cliche.

I stick to themes I know.
 
In color. I'm kind of enjoying doing little contextless, one-panel comic things. We'll see where this goes.

These are all independent publications I've put together in two years. Quality-wise, it's all mostly garbage, but no one--NO ONE--can say I'm lazy, or not practicing on improving my craft, or that I'm not dedicated to the medium.
 
The current inventory list. I have some printing and stapling to do before September.

I made a thing this weekend.
 
The phrase "Never an astronaut, but always a spaceman" came into my brainhole last week and I've been toying with a visual ever since. I like this one the best.

Tattoo, maybe?

Help me make decisions about doing the comic thing next year. I need advice so I can plan better.
 
I figured the week of SDCC is a good time to start planning out next year's con season. I've only done a couple of smaller shows so far, and still have Rose City (Portland, OR 9/9-10) and POSSIBLY the Richmond Zine Fest this year, so I still won't have much experience doing any sort of larger show. Any recommendations for which shows to hit up next year? Should I take the plunge into the likes of NYCC, or even SDCC? Anyone willing to split a table for SPX 2013 (their table rates are notoriously high)?

Any sort of feedback would be appreciated.

Introduction
I'm one of those guys stuck in traffic on 495 every morning, but I do it for a job I enjoy and am good at.

I spend most of my free time making art, with a tiny allotment of time for running. (Exercise is cheaper than new pants.)

I enjoy reading funnybooks.
