Super Matt

Here is a quick drawing of my friend Matt I did just for fun. I'm trying to get shading down better, so this was a good practice piece.

I do really like the comic strip boards they making inking so much nicer, however bristol does the same thing and it's cheaper. I did have fun drawing all the little things in the background.
Does the last panel seem out of place with the flow of everything? I noticed it did I just wasn't sure how to fix it.

My Stop Motion Boogie

It was a lot of fun making this video. It took about two hours to film and a lot of sweat and three or four days of editing. It was a little more challenging than I thought but I learned a lot and if I ever make another stop motion dance video it will be pretty cool.

playing songs backwards -"Time of my life"

So I have this strange little hobby of playing songs backwards and writing down the lyrics and posting it on youtube. The strange thing that I am finding is that when you play a song backwards it never really sounds like much, you may hear a few things but as you really listen over and over you can make out a lot of stuff. This latest video of David Cooks single I did simply because I am hearing about how hot he is right now and I wanted to see if I could leech off of his popularity right now. I had no idea if it would have anything backwards but sure enough it has some pretty funny and relevant stuff in it. So did the leeching thing work? Let me put it this way, normally with my reverse videos it takes a day or two to get a hundred views and then it winds down and I get like 20 a day on average, that is for the good ones. With this one I got two thousand views in the first two days and now in day 5 it is up to like 3200, my highest video is at 3600 but that video has been up for like 5 months.

Jeff Defying gravity

I like this new technique of stop motion, using a video camera opens up so many possibilities

Yeah this post is strange but as strange as it is it was fun to try and make something with symbols and hidden meaning and stuff.

Jesus Christ

I know Christ probably didn't have blue eyes as he was not from a northern country but I have blue eyes so I thought I would be like some black artists who make Jesus look African and let him share some of my attributes. I also drew his eyebrows to look like my own. I know I'm going to hear "But Adam your drawing would have been a spot on drawing of Jesus Christ if you hadn't given him your eyebrows". Well my response to that is tough! Sometimes in life you just gotta give Jesus Christ your eyebrows and this is one of those times so deal with it.

Bored on Friday night - stop motion

I have been wanting to experiment with some stop motion and so I made up this short little piece. I think a tripod would help as well. I tried to give the banana six legs and make it walk around but couldn't get the thing to stand up very well so this is what I pooped out.

Writers block

As some of you have noticed I haven't posted any comics for a couple weeks. Dealing with writers block I decided to write a comic strip about writers block.

Kristy Lee Cook

Okay I admit it, I'm turning into an American Idol whore, that's all I've been posting recently. I used to hate the show and even now when I watch it I feel really guilty and feel like someone should come over and slap me for watching it, luckly no one has done that yet, or maybe I would be lucky to slap some sense into me.

This is for a project my friend is making, there will be a picutre of a girl that the dinosaur will be interacting with.

David Archuleta from American Idol

I sometimes like to draw from the tv just for fun and practice and that is what I did as I watched American Idol tonight.

Caricature posts

The picture is from when I was drawing caricatures at a place called "Brick Oven Pizza" and I drew many of the girls on a traveling team of girl’s high school volley players. Unfortunately I only had my camera phone which didn't do a very good job of capturing the drawings I made.
Here is a link to some of the posts of caricatures that I have done in the past.

Brooke White from American Idol

Brook White is so freaking hot, my drawings really just make her ugly. She has a light about her and just this energy I love and her music video she has previously made is growing on me a lot. Anyway, yeah I will be voting for her whenever I watch the show.

Yea for serotonin and oxytocin!

I did a little research to find out what chemicals were involved in attraction with the opposite sex, everything from hugging all the way up to the act of sex. Here are some of the chemicals that play a part: norepinephrine, serotonin, oxytocin, vasopressin, nitric oxide, and the hormone prolactin

A lot of these play major parts in other functions as well such as sleep and maintenance of hydration through out the body. Some of the chemicals are responsible for feelings of bonding with others and much of the feelings associated with love. I find that interesting that much of how we respond to others is based off of a chemical reaction with in our bodies. Granted our actions effect how the chemicals are released but still.

Is McCain a conservative?

This is my first stab at making a political cartoon, let me know what you think because I'd like to try and get some political cartoons published.
And one more thing, does anyone else get an uneasy feeling when he smiles? It makes me uncomfortable like he is hiding something and getting away with it.

Valentines day

Yes that is my heart I am taping on. Some times I feel like I stop caring as a self defense, thanks Valentines day for reminding me of that that, sigh. On the bright side this is the first time I have attempted coloring the lines, does it look okay? I guess I just need to mess around with line coloring more to get the hang of it.

Turtle Memory

Sometimes my memory just seems to be delayed for some reason. I don't know if you can tell as it wasn't drawn with much detail but the turtle is playing solitaire on the computer.

The Book Thief

I just got done reading a book called "The Book Thief" Well actually I listened to it on audio book in my car while I delivered pizza. Rarely does a book bring up such emotion and reflects on life and love and passion for the art and literature.

The book from the perspective of Death is a look into the life of a small girl named Liesel who lives in Nazi Germany. It may seem strange to use a time period and place of such evil and yet by using art and literature Zusak is able to show that great goodness and humanity can exist in even the toughest of times.
The book in a way was a tragic one because of all the killing that went on in World War II but unlike other tragedies this book left me with a feeling of love for the characters and a sense of awe at the writing skill of Markus Zusak.
I discovered "The Book Thief because I read a different book by Zusak called "I am the messenger" which was also one of the best books I have ever read. I would highly recommend both of these books as they are pure works of art that show how beautiful life can be even in tough times.
Rarely do I see a movie where I leave it and feel wonderful feelings of emotion and when I do these often become my favorite movies. Even more rarely is when I read a book that does the same thing and "The Book Thief" is one of those books.

The Hourly contest

I made this for the Hourly contest this year. Basically the rules are you make a comic strip about your life once every hour you are awake on Feb. 1. I started off making one with two panels and in the middle changed it to one panel per hour. It was fun but I am tired and going to bed. Oh here is the link to the Hourly comic challenge

Be Happy

I have a friend who sent me a text message that said "Be happy" when I was kind of down and even though it doesn't seem like that big of a thing it was nice. I made this in response to that. I didn't use her real name but I did take her name and did kind of a code with it. Let me know if you figure out the code.

Drawings from a short film

This is art inspired from the short little film I helped make last Friday night. Amores Secretos which you can see on my most recent post before this one. My apologies to Jeff and Hannah for any ugliness I may have bestowed upon the drawings of you.
