this is not historically accurate



...it's teaser of an illustration i'm working on because of a random twitter conversation involving first sentences for books that have yet to be written. my friend @jonthepoole had posted "Jimmy Carter relentlessly pushed the slender blade ever deeper into Josh Groban's throat. "Say hi to Stalin for me," he growled." and immediately this image came to my mind, and i had to draw it. sometimes the best time to draw is when you're randomly inspired by something.

this was one of those times. finished product tomorrow, or sometime this weekend!

this is not my current outfit

...but it was yesterday's outfit. i love technology. it lets you go from this:


to this:


in a matter of minutes. i figured it was time i updated my profile pics/avatars. notice this one includes the top of my scar.

sketched on copy paper with a sharpie. photographed with my blackberry. (didn't even scan it!) colored & edited in corel painter essentials.

i should get serious about finishing those illustrator tutorials, instead of just screwing around on it all the time. corel painter skills aren't that marketable. illustrator skills are. naturally.

anyway, that's it for today, kids.
