Today's quickie was brought to you by the Italian genre cinema industry of the 60's and 70's. Gianni Garko starred as the James Bond of gun slingers in a series of films dealing with the enigmatic Sartana. Maybe second only to Django in knock-offs, this drawing is a knock-off from the original film. Or as Jason properly called it, "that's a bunch of lines."

If I recall correctly, this was a quickie loosely extrapolated from a movie still of Boris Karloff. Any resemblance to Boris is purely coincidental. I was having more fun just playing with the hatching...which, as you can see, I, like a child, lost my sense of enjoyment in around the halfway mark.

Probably one of the few collaborations with Jason Shawn Alexander that I got to keep. I know that our duo placemat pictorials went on to find better homes than we'd give them. The figure in the middle got the ball rolling...then I went to town after that. If you guessed the above was the end result...you'd be right!

...thought it was swell."
A vampish quickie.
The page had some ink spots left by work on the page previous...well spots be damned. I wouldn't say I incorporated them. I just didn't let them stop me. You work with what you have...and what I have is the total lack of desire to waste a page because of a few spots for a clean page. How's that for attitude? The snarkiness almost shocks me.

A few years ago, for a grant competition, I wrote a short for my friend Seaton Lin. From there...well I'll skip the saga of the ups and downs of how the project finally came together...the important thing is that cinematic thunder was captured, cut, and released for you enjoyment. The film's been starting its way out onto the festival circuit, but here's your chance to catch it sans ID card and lanyard. I hope you will like it...if you don't, remember that budgetary restrictions cut all the explosions and Seaton's relentless monkeying with the script and all, that is what ruined it.
And on with the show! Take me to...LITTLE CANDY HEARTS...(Click It!)

This cute li'l fella was inspired by ubiquitous Spanish character actor Aldo Sambrell. Aldo's face after many years of viewing what's somewhat affectionately known as "Eurotrash" cinema is almost...well...comforting in a way. The same way that anything familiar becomes somewhat comforting at times of trials and tribulations. Not that I'm full of tribulations right now...in fact, I'm pretty zen right now really. Still, doesn't change the fact that the pen made me do a rendering of Señor Sambrell.
