“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.

EDIT: the previous Sunshine image I posted was foul. It had a
layer which was out of place. All is corrected.

Plus, I also wanted to post a close up of her earrings-



Bonehead- the first character I ever created, back in 6th grade.
He’s been upgraded and incorporated into the Teen Heaven
Universe….

The shirt design

I’ve got more character designs in the works.

Tonight! at the Moda 3 Gallery in Milwaukee

Here are a couple of my contributions:

Jose G vs Blutt – the first Chameleon Girl!


Jose G vs Revise CMW number 7,080

Gonna be off the hook. Shit, I’m running late!
I promise to update soon!

Oh yeah- TEASE!

Laters!

Live Art Photos from Elements – 08/17/06

Here are some live art photos from the Elements show at the Funky Buddha last Thursday.
that shit was poppin that night. I’d say it was right up there with the Comicon Black beetle show.
I was jealous of the sea of people having a good time behind me. I wanted to ditch my paint and
join them. for real. if you came, thanks! Also thanks to Q-Phonics for hooking that up.
We gotta do it again!

I started with a warm up sketch, which sold right away…

..

I wanted to stay with the Ghosts in The Machine theme, which is the title of Intel’s new mix CD


I didn’t quite finish the main piece that night at the show. I thought I had an extra hour, so I went a
little slow. I had a buyer for the piece while I was painting it, and I promised him I’d take it home and
tighten it up…
results–

Can’t wait until next time!!!

Peace,

Jose Gee

and of course, all this shit is ©2006 Jose J Garibaldi, you thievin bastards!

ain’t no fun….

yeah it is.
I lied.
Painting, drawing, especially for yourself-
tons of fun.

I had a great time last Saturday. Haiku killed it.
Geti killed it. Crucial killed it.
Thanks to these cats for letting me push paint around.
I think these are some of my favorite pieces I’ve ever
done at any of these live art events. If you haven’t been
to one of ’em, stop slacking, come out, support and
have a good time. The deejays are the shit, artists are
the bomb, and everyone is there to have big fun.

Here are the two paintings I did at the Dennehy
realease show, Saturday, July 8fth—

This has got to be the fastest painting I’ve ever done.


I had other plans for this piece while I painted the background.
As I laid down the gray b.g., I thought to do an image resembling
a black and white sticker of some face (or some other dumb shit.)
Then I looked at it, and this appeared to me. That shit sounds crazy,
and I’m not a religious cat, but I swear ‘fo god that’s what happened.
Out of all the pieces I’ve painted live (and off the top of my dome),
this is my favorite. Hams down.
I still want to touch it up, tighten the piece up like Archie Bell
did the Drells.

The weekend before I painted at Untitled on Clark. I didn’t finish
the piece, but plan to go back into it. She’s holding a knife…

never wrong a woman.

The following images are for the front and back covers of
a book I hope to have available next month. It’s called
Wait For Me, and it’s a collection of short stories, sketches,
concept art and character designs.
These images are close to being done, just couldn’t wait
to post them. The line drawings were done three years ago,
hence the specs, shaved head and goatee. And the Hulk pants.
I colored these pages a week ago, so it’s a strange blend of
old and new…

the front…wip

the back… ditto

Hope all is good. This sucka is tired. Don’t believe Intel or Brandy when they ask you out for “one beer”. Boolshet.

Laters!
Jose G

Holy! It’s an update!


yep. sorry! I’ve been busy. Y’know how it goes. Though, I must say
I’m in much better spirits than I have been in the past year. Could
be the weather.
Anyway, just a quick update with work and what not. I hope to get
together some new Scam! comics as soon as some of this other stuff
is out of the way.
A week and a half ago, I walked into TreVia to hang out with my
friends Mike and Erin, when I was told that one of the live artists
couldn’t show that night. Asif asked me if I wanted to paint, so I ran
home, grabbed my stuff (and changed clothes) and did an impromptu
live art session. It was nice. here’s some pics…


The full piece, with some drawing by Anne (don’t know how to spell
your last name) on the left. Grey markers with acrylic paint on giant
masonite…


detail of the girl bot thing….

Detail of the gang at the bottom..
I wanted to rock some characters from a story idea I have called
“Deeds”. It’s what I’m planning post Teen Heaven.
The above is now owned by a Mister Tony Trimm.
Buy his album- Blew
Last weekend I had a gallery show at Maison Rouge in the Century
Mall. The show was eh, but I was happy to see my friends there, and
the after party at Rodan was fun. Then it was Nick’s. Then it was
the Lighthouse. A great night indeed.
I didn’t have a whole lot of time to do these pieces. About a week
or so. I hope next time I have at least a few months to paint..
Take  A Look! (<-in joke)


this was an old piece (which isn’t even finished) But I threw it in
to fill up some space. You could see an early version of the pac-man
art before I started it over…


most of the pieces were made up as I painted them. This was one
that was sketched out beforehand. I wish I could’ve finished this, but
“no dice”. It’s called “PUNK!”

“These Eyes Aren’t Blue”
I actually started this piece at the black beetle last November. I
completely re-did the face I previously painted on Pinky. The homo
sexual/transvestite tones were a last  minute idea. I thought it was funny. Pac-Man ghosts rule.

“Interplanetary Hollar” WIP
This was before I knew where the hell I was going with
this painting.
and den…

“Interplanetary Hollar”
I need to take a better photo of this one. Not diggin
the reflection I’m getting on the left side…

“Cosmonauts” WIP
Why should I stick to full color? never mind the dirty floor…

“Cosmonauts”
I like this one.
I did three paintings on 2’X2′ board, using markers and acrylics. I
took the images straight from my 2004 sketchbook. I tried to
replicate them the best I could. I want to do more of these…

“Tragicomedy”
I think in my sketchbook drawing the clown was to be drunk…

“$100, 000 Pyramid”
This was a Deeds concept sketch.

“Girl With Boombox”
I like this one, too.

“Theatre” WIP
Of the top of the dome shit. Might be my favorite of
the bunch.

“Theatre”
I need better pics of these.
and this last piece was the one I was most excited about.
It was the first sketch I did after I found out about the gallery show.
Unfortunately, it’s not really finished. i gotta get it back and touch it
up more.
Here’s the sketch:

and the “finished” displayed version..

But once it’s done, it’ll be boombtastic..
Thanks to the Maison Rouge Galerie for having my work there,
extra special thanks to deejays Intel and Pickel who not only agreed
to deejay for the art show, but also helped me promote and set up.
They’s me brothiz. Thanks to Revise who came through with the
jam piece we did a few months back.
And again, thanks to everyone who showed up and supported. I
love youse!

Yeah yeah, I’m still working….

So I haven’t been posting frequently. Things have been rolling
along. Some things not so bad, some things not so good. Been doing
some illo work, some comic work, a lot of coloring work, watching
the shit out of Alias still, fucking around with the ones and two’s (dj
shittydeejay) and still kicking it at the local spots. Time, Money and
Energy all held an intervention. They sat me down and said they’ve
given all they can give. They told me to slow down, get my shit
together, get rest, write stories, back up my hard drives, draw, pay
bills, eat better. So I’m going to TRY to honor their demands.
But I can’t guarantee shit.
Anyway, still not sketching much. But I do have som shit to show.
My man
Revise asked me to collab on a piece with him, which is
being shown at a gallery spot in Cleveland this weekend. I finished
my chunk last night
.

the sketchbook drawing that inspired my portion of the piece
drew my shit in peeyuncil… shitty sidekick photo

Why post this pic? I dunno…I should open the blinds, put on a free show…

Revise hooked up the swirls, shapes and BG. I lay down the
colors on my dude….

Tightenin’ it up like the Drells…

the whole comp….
I’ve got a scan of this which is not as blurry, but I forgot to bring it. I
might update later……
And of course, there’s this (which is supposed to be done by the end
of the month. Wish me luck!!!!!!
shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh…….
Also, I’m going to remind you to please donate to the March of
Dimes
. I anticipated a better response to this whole thing than I
actually got. Thanks to those who have donated, and to those who
have not- please help. Sara is $150 bucks away from her goal, but I
think it could surpass that. Let’s give her a hand and get yourself
some sweet art in the process. Thanks.
details are in the last blog, on my
profile page and in the hundreds of
bulletins I’ll be sending out. $100 or more could get score you a
character painting like the one you see above.
Peace,
Jose G
P.S. Why the fuck is photobucket resizing my images!?
They’re all below the 512K limit. Bitches!!!

ghwet..

My sketches this week are pretty shitty, so I will not be posting any. Intead, I will flood your fucking bandwidth with a billion images I found on my harddrive. Since I haven’t updated my website in fucknowswhen, I’ll post that shit here. Mostly freelance illustrations and pin ups. Enjooey!




(the above is still in progress)




The following illos were done for The Pitch in K.C.










And these pages were done about two years ago, waiting to be lettered..


Have a good weekend, miotches. I’m on recovery…

Peace,
