I spend about five hours a day and five days a week in New York transit. I love it! Sure it can be congested and rank sometimes but it can also be better than a movie. I’ve been keeping a comic journal on my trips to work and after a little inking and coloring I’m going to share my commute with you. The first couple are kinda old. I started the journal last year but the digital bits are kinda recent. Anyway, enough talk. Enjoy!
What kind of jerk face gets sick on the first day of summer with some type of atomic space flu that last for three to four weeks? That would be this jerk face. I’ve been in bed for the most part which means I haven’t been doing the Toy Mech thing but I got a little something. You might remember last Halloween I mentioned an H.P. Lovecraft project I was revamping. No, I’m not about to lose focus of Toy Mech and start working on another unfinished project. I just thought I’d color some old character shots from said project since light photoshopping is something I can do while bed ridden. Eventually I will get around to finishing and releasing my Lovecraft tale. ( hopefully before Lovecraft becomes the next “zombies” and is ruined for me by the masses) But right now I’ve got to focus. Anyway, here’s some Lovecraftian horror, Jankins style.
I haven’t posted a lot of drawings lately. Mainly because I’m in-between places so I don’t have regular access to my scanner. However, that’s just an excuse because I have a ton of old art just sitting around stinking up my computer. Here some monsters from my kaiju sketch book. The same one that created a great deal of creatures I use in Toy Mech, Gnosis and F-Bomb.
So the goodies kinda have a cool pad. Kevin, who acts as the leader, brains and resident inventor of the ‘Toy Mech‘ protagonist, has built a cozy mobile home for his motley crew. The Mongo-1 will have awesome interior design inspired by the cut away’s of my boy Wes Anderson.(Think the train in Darjeeling limited or Steve Zissou and his yellow submarine) If your nice, maybe I’ll show ya some of the sketches of Mongos guts. Mongo-1, another fun piece to make.
Happy Monday! Grab the kids, this is a post for the family. No, really, this is Pretty Pants Pete. He’s one of the more darker characters from ‘Toy Mech‘. He was extremely fun to make and I’m very pleased with how he came out. He won’t be appearing in Toy Mech for a while so I thought that I’d give him a little photo shoot. Enjoy!
Another lost part of the mega mech ” Fugazer-Z“. Lally is a sentient left giant robot hand and he’s the resident bully in the world of “Toy Mech“. Not so much a villian as he is just an asshole. I borrowed the motion design for Lally from John K.‘s “New Adventures of Mighty Mouse” villian ‘The Glove‘. Lally is indeed a giant hand but since becoming sentient, he now walks and talks like a person. But his body motion shifts constantly between being a hand and walking on two fingers human style. Enough talk, here’s some shots my sweet babies. Enjoy, Lally was fun too make.
Nanotechnology plays a big part in the “Toy Mech” world. This is Planck, a nanite. A nanite in this story is a cluster of sentient Nanoids that is liberated from its original main frame and given free will. Planck is kinda of a cross between “T-1000” and “Jamie Madrox the multiple Man“. I can’t say too much about Planck because he is one of the major players in the progression of the main story. He’s funny, I can say that much.
