The League of Extremely Ordinary Gentlemen (LEOG for short) on Spill.com is one of my favorite Podcasts, and Time Travel is one of my favorite genres/storytelling devices. And here illustrated is the quite large LEOG crew, each as a character from one of my favorite shows, Doctor Who. Listen to their Time-Travel themed episode by clicking this link.

Requested by Randy, an illustration of a rant done on his podcast "Loose Canon Comics" (which is not JUST his, he's along with "Lounge Geek" crew Jason and Beau) in which they discuss what would happen if the events of "The Hangover" occurred to Tony Stark, Mr. Fantastic and Moon Knight.
Hilariousness ensue; as you can discover by clicking this link to listen for yourself! Visit Lounge Geeks.
And if you're in the Austin/Round Rock area, visit Rogue's Gallery Comics and Games and buy something from the delightful and helpful staff. (And do not be scared of their in-jokes. If you hear them say "WE. ARE GOING. TO DIE! :(" Do not worry. No one is actually going to die.)

Any and all questions and comments can be directed to me at this blog, or the email address on the resume or business card that brought you to this blog entry. Thank you for your time, and enjoy!
I was proud and honored to have been able to work on the package design for Kyoji Yamamoto's introduction to the USA. "Voyager: The Essential Kyoji Yamamoto" is a fantastic collection of his greatest Solo work, available thru CityBoy Records.
The theme for the Heroes Expo is always Star Wars, but the added Fight-Club motif allowed for some more fun elements to be added, hence the "Fincher-esque" color scheme and the film-strip look of 2008's Collectible poster.

I worked a desk job for many years in Syracuse NY. One day, I was told my small, cramped office (that had barely any air circulation) would be filled with one extra person other than myself. I was less than enthused. The person who was taking what little space remained was a fellow named Rob.
At first, my opinion of Rob was not high. I had enjoyed being by myself in there, so another person in that tiny room did not really interest me. Also, my first impression of him wasn't that great... NO ONE can be this happy and smiley ALL THE TIME. What was up with this guy?
Over time, What can I say. I lightened up. I stopped being a grumpy bitter cuss (or at least, LESS of one) and we became buddies. In-jokes grew. I discovered he was the underweight long-lost twin of Comic's C.B. Cebulski... Internet Memes were swapped and many Lulz were had. Most of all, this fine Gentleman said something that changed my life: "You really should watch the Venture Bros. You'd really like it."
Well when this guy announced he was leaving Rainy Syracuse for Rainy Seattle, for WUV, then I felt I owed the guy something. (I mean COME ON, he got me watching the freaking VENTURE BROS.) Since he and his sweetie were avid MMORPG'ers, and had ridiculously high-leveled Red Mages in Final Fantasy Online, well it seemed a no brainer to draw their Avatars slinging off some magic.
Fire and Ice, ladies and gentlemen.

I've been on the Spill.com site for quite some time. They are a group of smart and funny writers, artists and humorists who create Animated reviews to new films, along with blogs, podcasts, and general internet tomfoolery.
For the last few years, the guys have put together a fantastic gathering in Austin Texas, a series of panels, workshops, art-jams, and nights of drinking; a fest called SPILL DOT CON. I am proud and honored to have been asked to create the promotional image for this years' event.
To the uninitiated who may be asking "What exactly am I looking at here?" You see the loveable animated characters of Spill.com (clockwise from top-left: Korey, Cyrus, Leon, Carlyle and the inimitable CoHost 3000 in the center) who have been mutated and combined into the body of Godzilla's arch nemesis: King Ghidorah.
(I cannot claim all of the credit. The Japanese translation by Toshishisa Nakamura, a friend who lives in Japan...thankfully far enough away from the recent tsunami and current reactor problems... but close enough where of course things are really scary. Hang in there, buddy.)
