JOKER

You look nervous. Is it the scars? You want to know how I got 'em?

Throughout my life I have seen, without one exception, narrow-shouldered men performing innumerable idiotic acts, brutalising their fellows, and corrupting souls by every means. They call the motive for their actions: fame. Seeing these exhibitions I've longed to laugh, with the rest, but that strange imitation was impossible. Taking a penknife with a sharp-edged blade, I slit the flesh at the points joining the lips. For an instant I believed my aim was achieved. I saw in the mirror the mouth ruined at my own will! An error! Besides, the blood gushing freely from the two wounds prevented my distinguishing whether this really was the grin of others. But after some moments of comparison I saw quite clearly that my smile did not resemble that of humans: the fact is, I was not laughing. (HA HA HA HAAAA!)

STREET FIGHTER TRIBUTE - BLANKA


Photobucket

BLANKA!

I was honored to have a piece of mine included in UDON's gimungous Street Fighter Tribute book, alongside the likes of J. Scott Campbell, Adam Hughes, and (personal fave) Jeff ‘Chamba’ Cruz, just to name a few. The book launches at the Comic-Con this week, where I hear tell some folks will also be selling prints of their work. I will not be selling prints (I guess I missed that memo?), BUT- if you want to commission a character drawing or something, email 'mumblemonkey' at the gmail and he'll be sure to figger something out for you, with sugar on top.

SUPERMANIA

Prompted by the latest challenge over at Project: Rooftop, I have taken on the daunting task of redesigning THE superhero of superheroes...SUPERMAN!
I must say...the process put me in a bit of a contemplative reverie...
