“It’s been a long time” No. 3,000 : New Characters and Art- Edited

Hooooo! Over two months since the last update!
I’ve had a lot going on lately, sadly not as productive as I’d like to be.
Been swimming through these clouds over my head, I wonder
if it’s the weather shifts. I keep starting new scam comics, end
up trashing them before I could finish.
So, what’s the haps?

I have a new website:
www.littlebrownheart.com

I’ve been featured on www.drawn.ca
(thanks, guys! You blew my hit counter up and I couldn’t be
happier about it)

Bunch of shit is brewing in my secret skull. A couple short stories
by year’s and an original Jose G comic series, hopefully early
07. Hopefully.

Got three pages in an upcoming issue of Mad magazine. Don’t
know which one, though…

Here’s a bunch of new, original character designs.
They’re all part of the Little Brown Heart takeover.

New website, live art and other nuggets…

Yo!
Don’t know what I’m doing, gotta get my ass in gear to prepare for
Wizard World. I will have a table this year, splitting it with Dave
Crosland (hiredmeat.com)
We are going to have a banging afterparty this year on the 5th. I’m
sure you heard already, I musta sent a cheechillion invites today.
And you’ll hear about it some more until I’m absolutely positive each
and every one of you will show. It sucks because a great deal of
people I was hoping to kick it with won’t be making the treck to the
city of wind this year. Fackin losers.
So, last night I got the idea to do a more professional website for
myself. I haven’t updated my own (josegaribaldi.com) site in like
three/four years, I doubt I’ll ever update it again. Long story.
But the new site-
www.littlebrownheart.com
It’ll have new art (probably nothing done before 05, maybe 04)
But it’ll be a bit of a new start. Time for some new shit. Time to let it
be known.
Last night I finished one side of the afterparty flyer. Plus I did a
banner. check it..


In living color…

drawings by Jim Mahfood, myself and Mike Bianco
I’ll post the Huddleston, Crosland, Bianco side tomorrow
Click on the links below (except for Bianco’s. His is still under
developement,,) Check out the art, check out the music created by
the deejays. I guarantee you won’t be still once Pickel drops a little
poison ass praying on you…..

Scam! 04/07/06

Chweet dreams are maitre’de (s)…
in other news- Ugh. I’m tired. I have this new routine (at least for the
next couple weeks) where I get up, go to work, come home around
5:30, go to sleep til 8-8:30, get up and get to work(at home). This
project romantic story is doing a number on me, but it is bringing
back the passion for drawing/coloring/et al… I just can’t wait until
the summer.
Not looking foward to doing the whole tax thing next week. every
year I swear I’m gonna get them shits done early, and I never do…
To everybody that’s e-mailed, called, texted, etc…sorry if I haven’t
replied yet. I’m slow. I’m trying to stay in this work mode right now,
that’s why I’m not going out for coffee and all that shee-eie-yot. I’ll
probably break out tomorrow night, hit the beetle (as usual). Just
trying to save some dough, plus stay close to home. Once this story
is all wrapped up I’ll be oot and aboot again.
Peace,
Chy’ull<

Oh! New ish of Mad Kids (Zack & Cody (w.t.fuck?) cover) should

Lifemeter comics in UK Edge magazine

Lifemeter comics, a blog dedicated to showcasing art and comics
inspired by video games has been written up in a UK videogame
mag called “edge”.
Guess who got a mention?

copied from the Lifemeter site:

Lastly, is the most exciting bit of news for us. Life Meter has seen
print! UK video game magazine
Edge has picked Life Meter as its
website of the Month in their current (April) issue! Thanks go to
Mark Kelly for the heads up. Here’s what they had to say:
Showing all the same inspiration and artistic vision that Raina Lee’s
1up ‘zine and the iam8bit show have bought to the community,
Lifemeter editors Zack Giallongo, Dave Roman and Stephanie Yue
have created one of the interent’s premier showcases for game
related art and comics.
Though still in its early stages, Lifemeter grows daily with
submissions from a dedicated group of indie artists from around the
world, all sharing their takes on their favourite digital worlds. Thus
far the submissions seem to rarely stray from the classic Nintendo
panthenon, perhaps proving the 8bit system’s influence on a
generation of budding artists. But already the site shows a diverse
range of reactions to the subject matter, from standard gag comics
to Jose Garibaldi’s silent telling of a Mario called to action and the
princess he leaves behind.

Go buy it now!

—————–
Weerd!! Props to Dave Roman and the lifemeter gang. The site is
dope. Also on the blog are works by my boys Scott Ruhl and Elio.

If you want to peep the story mentioned above, follow the link.
Untitled: Leaving
Also, big up to Shaughn Struble, for originally publishing the story
in the 2004 issue of A United Front.

For the record, my favorite strip on that site is the one with Mario in
the frog suit.

Also, to any of my UK peoples: Is there a way someone could get
me a copy of this edge mag? I’ll compensate you for your time, cost
of the mag plus shipping, etc. Hit me up and let me know. Thanks!!!

Oh, don’t fret. Another update is on the way today!

peace,
Jose

Slam Diego, Comics, and Felt 2

Hey heyhey
Felt 2 dropped yesterday, and I urge all of you to run out, buy it, sit on the floor and listen to it while you read along with Jim Mahfood’s Felt: True Tales.. book from Image Comics. The comic sports healthy colors by mythelf, funny shit from mister food, and the album has the dope cuts from Slug, Murs and Ant. The package is now complete…


I-I-I-It’s Yours!!!!!

I’m off to San Diego bright n early tomorrow morning, making my way to comicon. Got my art ready, got my game, gotta get my fade hooked up, but other than that I’m read to go! I know for sure I will be signing at the Oni Press booth on Friday from 4:30 to 5:50 with Christina Weir and Nunzio DeFilippis, so bring your copies of Maria’s Wedding for us to scrawl on.
Dark Horse doesn’t have me scheduled for anything, but Dini will be signing from 4-5. I’ll most likely be buzzing around there at that time, begging for change.
Also, don’t forget to hit the Comicon Funk Party Saturday night! DJ’s and Live Art. Details here- http://www.40ozcomics.com/new/news.html
If anybody wishes to meet up at and/or around the con, send me an e-mail- josegaribaldiATtmail.com .

And now for some art. I posted these elsewhere, don’t think they made it on the blog… From the failed Franchise comic strip I was doing for tlchicken.com. I feel horrible that I wasn’t able to keep up with the monthly strip thing, I’s just burnt.reaaaally burnt. I Love You Tastes Like Chicken. Sorry I didn’t work.

Peace! More when I get back hizoome.

Teen Heaven on the Real.

So, after wondering if it made the cut, I spotted a glimpse of two Teen Heaven comic strips on the Real World: Philly! Keep your eyes open when they show the computer room/ office. It’s on the back wall there. Also keep an eye out for Chynna’s Scooter Girl and other Oni goodies!
Many thanks to Jenny Sireci. She’s the bomb.
http://www.madterroristpress.com/teenheaven/teencomix.htm

So I’m hoping to get this page on the website ( www.josegaribaldi.com ) I want to create a new opening page with two paths, one to my portfolio/gallery and the other to my Internet House Party. It’s a celebration, pendejos. I’m even working on my high top fade. Ola Ola Ey!

Jingle Belle volume two issue one is now wrapped. Just wait three months and she’s all yours.
I’m this ** close to finishing the pencils to issue two. Paul did a great job with this story, so I hope I do it justice!

Check out this mix, it’s quite dope.

Enjoy the mix, enjoy the weather, pees.
