New Art: Growing Your Psychic Abilities For Fun and Profit, 2016
Yoes! Have a new piece this week. I tried to finish two, since I missed last week, but it’s not happening (yet). I plan on making up for the missing week, so there will be something for every week of the year. Remember to follow on Snapchat (cluepac) for some behind the scenes and progress images.

It’s based on the sketch below. I was going for an old comic book style. I’m still experimenting with technique, subject matter, time management and workflow with these pieces. I’m learning a bit as I go, but I think I can learn much more.
See you next week! Laters!
New Art: A Gift From Baxter
Sorry I’m a day late, but it’s Saturday, and it’s still *this* week, right? Anyway, made some last minute changes to this one and threw Baxter’s name into it. Hope you dig! Just wrapped a big project, so I’ll be back next week with more art, sketches and musings.

the piece is a major extension of this chunk of sketch.
Hope you’re having a great 4th of July weekend! Stay safe!
New Art: StarPoint, 2016
Yet another rush week. StarPoint was something I put together on the fly this morning. Yesterday, we experienced a 12 hour power out (apparently due to a crow flying into a circuit breaker at an LADWP Power Distribution center). In between running around and tossing fridge content, I decided to take some time off and get some reading and relaxation in. It was definitely needed. Thank you, Mr. Crow! Also, RIP Mr. Crow (I’m assuming). Luckily it didn’t mess up my schedule.

Yes, it was another rush job. As I’m sure next weeks will be as well. It’s yet another deadline week. But that should be it for a while! Hope you dig it!
Based on a couple sketches I stitched together:
See you next week!
New Art: At Last, 2016
I kinda rocked a rush job this week. Had my head set on working on a different piece, but didn’t think I’d finish it on time. Instead, I grabbed some sketches I had lying around, chopped them up and put this together. It still took me longer than anticipated.

I stepped out of my comfort zone for this, and tried a few different techniques. I guess that’s the goal of these weekly pieces. I’m notoriously obsessive over trying to make my work perfect, and thus killing the flavor of the original sketch. I hit these each week with no direction, just try to come up with the best possible combination of line, color, and context on the fly. Sometimes I’m happy with the results, and other times I just have to put it out there and let the world be the judge. Either way, I’m happy I’ve been able to somewhat consistently share new work. I hope you feel the same!

Til necks time!

New Art: Petchers
Hey Gang, got another quick one. Petchers is a piece based on a post-it doodle (Yes, I found a TON of post-it sketches that can make some fun finished illustrations).Just wanted to go simple with this one, since there’s plenty of catching up to do around here. Also, hopefully I’ll be able to follow this post with some information regarding MAD Magazine, an art show tonight and also a book signing tonight. Stay Tuned!

New Art: Bet, 2016
Good morning and happy Friday! Got a new one for you this week, “Bet: Escape From The Chalkboard Assassination Squad”. It came together pretty quickly and I’m pretty happy with the results. I parts from two older sketches and combined them for this piece. I think the ones I throw together at the last minute are the ones that turn out the best. If you follow me in Snapchat (username: Cluepac), you can catch glimpses of these new pieces as I work on them. It’s hella fun.

Have a great Memorial Day weekend!
New Art: Right This Way
A little, one-eyed, one-eared, Cat butler to the multiverse? don’t know. Found a post it with this little dude sketched on it. Most likely from a TMNT meeting. I’m really happy that I’ve been updating this blog regularly. It was getting a bit rusty over the past 5-6 years. Anyway, here’s the piece, click on the image for a larger version.
below is the post it sketch:
New Art: Gil Man Gnaw
Yo Dudes! Got a Deeds character, Gil Man, for you today!
Almost didn’t make it this week, much like last week I have some deadlines looming. But I’m still in the game! Let’s keep it rolling!

Barely in the groove, but I’m hanging in there. See you next week!
Also: stay tuned for some announcements!
New Art: Greedings, 2016
I didn’t think I’d be able to sneak one in this week. I’ve been kinda swamped, but luckily I was able to get down on a quick illustration. I guess I can knock out the creepy ones without much worry for time. This is from a sketch I did about five years ago or so. Anyway, I hope I can get another to you next week!
