here come de hotsteppa

Figured I’d post some sketches, character designs, etc. I usually do these while my slow work computer saves these ginormous image files. Some of it is Deeds stuff.
I’m off to Milwaukee tonight with Intel and Pugs. Should be fun.
Peace!
Jose Chee












Have a good weekend.
Peace!

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

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!!!
