Halloween Themed

I didn't like his face, so I blurred it.

New York Geekcast - new episode

I'm sure most of you are already aware of the podcast that Nelson and I host, but I thought I'd just mention that our newest episode was released today.

In this very low-key episode, the Geeks hang out at Andrew Roberts’ abode, review “Drag Me to Hell” by Sam Raimi just in time for Halloween, talk about Big Apple Comic Con ‘09, and more. Also featuring our interview with Joe Madureira, comic book writer/artist and creative director on the new “Darksiders” game for PS3!

jack-o'-lantern "au natural"

this pumpkin already had a grin!

Lord Lena- Week 2

Hi all,

So lovely Lena came by today for another sitting and here's where we're at. I obviously haven't worked much on the background or her clothes, but primarily concentrated on her face. What do you all think?

sometimes adobe bridge saves my files as random patterns of color.

i have a nice collection going.

can you find the hidden message?


We carved pumpkins this weekend. I feel that ours is pretty bad ass considering it only took 30 minutes from idea to the finish. So much fun!!

The Why-Isn't-Your-Room-Clean Monster

I haven't had much time to draw lately so I'm posting one of my drawings from the Too Art for TV gallery. I picked up what was left of my drawings on Saturday. This one is gone forever.... :(

you can see the other ones here:

So begins my journey into the world of still images...

Thank god this thing isn't moving, it would have been a bitch to render.

This is just a sketch I did while I was at work trying to stay awake by listening to Dante's Inferno. It's kind of like Halloween. Obviously a work in progress!

P.S. Dante's Inferno . . . B - O - R - I - N - G !

Here's an animation test I just did with a kaleidoscope. I'll post a higher quality version later today once it's finished processing on Vimeo.

Here's a reeeeeeaaaally low-tech stop-motion test I did on my kitchen counter yesterday. This was shot without a tripod and I put the whole thing together in Quicktime. One day I will have real equipment.

The worst person i've worked with (AKA He who should not be named)

For Halloween: something truly terrifying. To name him would be to give him power so i shall not.

Tremble with fear:

You like Comics? I make Comics! How weird is that?

Me and my brother, Gabe (some of you may have met him), do a weekly comic that updates every Tuesday called "Crash Helmet Science." We alternate pages every week and we don't know what the other is going to do with their page. We don't follow a script so, the comic just kind of goes where it wants to. If you guys want to check it out the website is:

All the odd number pages are Gabe's and all the even ones are mine. Any feedback is welcome.

Space Police Log 05: Ice Cream Stand

New episode of Space Police! The plot thickens.

If you've missed the previous episodes, you can catch up on the series here.

Admiral Lord Lena Green

So today I began the long awaited painting # 2 of my "Geeks" series. The subject is of course Lena Green: Artist, History Nerd, Fashionista, British Naval Commander, and all around friend-to-all. Pictured above is my first day of progress- contour line drawing/partial under-painting. Dimensions are 18X24.

So I need your help- how did I do on the likeness? Proportions? If you're wondering about the BG, I'm hoping to paint the sea with some kind of sinking battleship... Generally naval portraits include depictions for a victorious battle in the background (in flames!) Just like this guy:

Oh, and this is Halloween related because... she's wearing her costume from last year. Yeah. Now, critique pretty please!


PS- I am actively considering who's next in the series. Would you like your portrait painted for free? Are you a geek for something? Do you have a couple of hours to spare to come model for me? Then you fit the profile! Drop me a line if you're interested...

Andrew - The Witch of the NorthEast

Here is my Halloween theme contribution. It is yet another wonderful edition of the much-loved tradition of drawing Andrew as different people/creatures.

(well, much loved by all but Andrew)

I have yet to set up my scanner or Photoshop on my new computer so this was a great experiment for Microsoft Office Picture Manager.

In the spirit of Halloween, here's a drawing of Hellboy.
Hellboy is Halloween-ish, right?

Flea Market Finds!

Went to the flea market down in Irvine last weekend and found some awesome old letters and an antique washboard from asia... so naturally I made this ambiguous mystical sign to hang on my wall.

This is dumb, but...

The halloween theme made me think of this image I did last year.

My stepmom (who is now a "Berger") is really into halloween, especially Frankenstein. Her birthday is near halloween, so I made this image for a shirt through

It's kind of cheesy but I thought it was pretty cute. Halloween is usually pretty cheesy anyway, right?

This doesn't really have anything to do with Halloween, but...oh well.
So, I don't know if you guys are familiar with this blog:
People do like "covers" of comic book covers. Even if you aren't super into comics it's still fun to look at. So a couple months ago I was inspired to do my own "cover". I spent forever picking one I wanted to do (longer then I care to admit) and I finally finished and sent it off to the guy who runs the blog...and it was rejected. Seriously, I got a rejection email and everything. So now I've got this random Batman cover I did just hanging out with no purpose in life, so I thought this seemed like a good place to share it :)

and here is the original

I don't understand why it was rejected, but this
made the cut. haha, oh well.

Check out my new WEBSITE

Hello friends,

One of the most pressing things I'm sure we've all been working on lately is updating our websites. Here's mine:

Any feedback and suggestions are more than welcome- I'm a not terribly web gifted and relied on the genius of Wordpress to carry me through. Thanks!



My most recent doodle. It is your mom.

Monstur Mom = Very Halloweeny.

Here's a little guy I did as a concept for one of Matt and I's crazy ideas. It's about the things two Gargoyles do to amuse themselves while stuck on top of a building.

They offer encouraging words.

Again not really Halloween related.. per say.... but you can see where I'd make the mistake of thinking so ..

More to come,


Hey guys! Hi from Cali. So this isn't really autumn-themed (it's still 80 degrees here after all), but I've been working on these guys for a neato gallery in West Hollywood (making five in total). They're small-scale wall sculpture... each one is like 1.5 to 2 inches in length.


Hey everyone,

I love this idea, and I love Halloween! So here's an old sketch from when I, Aaron, Nelson, and a few others, were planning our escape from LAP in the chance happening of a Zombie Outbreak.

Step 1: Weapons...

I was thinking pulling one of those giant metal stars off the wall and using that...

Step 2: Escape Route...

Out the window by Jordan's desk ... along the ledge, and over the next building or down the tree and into the court yard ...

Step 3: ... yeah it never got to step three ...

Well, if anyone has a step three .. let us know ... or what your step 1 and 2 would be from where you sat in LAP ...

more to come,

Pep'e (Jeff)

Challenge #1: Halloween

Alright folks,

So to really get the most out of this communal blogging experience, I'd like to propose regular challenges to post new work based on a theme. Theme for this month: Halloween. If you're like me, you take Halloween pretty damn seriously... perhaps a little too seriously. I tend to have fantasies of grandiose costumes that I inevitably have to scale back due to time and budget constraints.

I challenge us to draw, animate, sculpt, design... VISUALIZE in any way your ideal costume you've never been able to afford or make.

Alternatively, if you're currently working on your ideal costume and don't want to give it away, tickle us with some Halloween or fall themed illustration. This can be anything from a beautiful fall landscape to Trent Reznor's face superimposed on a pumpkin. Either way, make us smell that brisk fall air!

Alright folks, lets give it a whirl! Post by Halloween, of course :)

Wall-E is by far my favorite Pixar film, and after seeing it I decided to recreate the two main characters in LEGO minifigure scale. (2008)
