Hair cut

Got my hair cut the other day. Although I miss the bushy hair, my head can breathe, and that always feels good.

Wedding Monster

This is for Brian's Summer monster thing. Our monster though is much bigger than anything Summer could muster. Although alot will be happening for Karen and I come june and July, the wedding monster cannot be ignored!!!

Some random Sketches from sunday Sketch night.

I hope the idea of halloween in April catches on, makes April more crazy, well except for spring break, and the occasional easter, and personally there's my birthday, but still, its a really dull month.

I'm sooooo old!!!

Yesterday was my Birfday!!! That's right I have graced this planet for a total of 24 years. But don't worry if you've missed out on some good Bill Drastal Experience featuring Karen, because there's plenty more to come.

Coming soon too a beach near you.

I saw this lady on TV. You gotta love spring break.

Bill Clone Sighting.

I was at life drawing yesterday, and I drew this guy, who strangely looks a lot like me. I know, I'm scared too. Either this guy is really my genetic clone, or I need to seriously reevaluate my self image, and how I draw myself. Or maybe its a freak coincidence.

Seperated at birth or what?

BIZMAR Madness

I decided to contribute to the next BIZMAR book, and do a pin up. With everything that's happened with young american comics, I'm surprised I did one. But friends are friends, so what are you gonna do?

Its Time For Life Drawing!!!

Once again its wednsday, and I went to life drawing. John Munson is at the class, I'm sure most people who actually read my blog, know who John Munson is, but for those that don't, he was an artist at Sea World, who I guess from what I've heard, was one of the worst. Anyways, we had an interesting coversation about being an artist, and going to school, and what you actually learn. I like to think that no matter if you go to school or not, you have two things to learn as an artist. First you learn the craft, and then you learn how to be an artist. Your education in both is never over, and it doesn't matter which one you start with either, but you have to learn a bit of both, I feel, to be an artist. (note I didn't say good artist). He told me about His experience with Jeff What's? school and how Jeff is being offered jobs, because he's really good. I'm sure I toatlly missed his point, but I feel that if you worry too much about being good enough to be offered jobs, then you're not going anywhere with your art. If you sit an try to learn everything you can about art and never experience life and never have anything to put into your art, than your art is bland and doesn;t mean anything. I may be going on a huge rant, but seriously, if all you can think out in your life is just getting up, drawing all day, going back to sleep, portfolio this and sketch nights that, and how you are going to get "better" you miss out on life, and its life that give art and meaning. You want to find a balance, on that's comfortable for you, and none else. To many times I see really awesome artists not doing anything, because they think their portfolio isn't good, or they need to still work on something. That's all good, but put your work out there, and go and live life. What's the point of being an artist, when you're so engrossed in your art, that you never enjoy?

Well anyways, here are some of my favorite sketchs from today's class.

Late Night Sketches Featuring, Mr Trump!!

I wish I had done this when I left Kamans.

Last Night Karen and I were up late and we were watching the "Apprentice". I like watching the end when Trump fires someone for pissing him off. And then he has these two assistants at his side that always agree with him. "That was a good firing Mr. Trump" or "good decision Mr. Trump", "Yes Sir may I have another Mr. Trump" and so on like that. What was even funnier about last night was the winning team got to have a fancy white caviar dinner at some really expensive millionaire lunch restaurant. Of course Ye olde Donald declines, because he'd rather have Arby's (who of course were his business clients, nothing like sucking up!). In Business someone's always kissing someone's ass. But I guess I can't fault Mr. Trump, because truthfully, I'd rather have Arby's too. Good Roast Beef.

I'm excited, my favortite show Ghost Hunters is back on. Its pretty cool, its about a paranormal investigation group, and they go to hauntings with cameras and high tech equipment and try to disprove that there's a haunting. They're on their third season, but they've caught some awesome footage of objects being moved, shadows, and last season they caught an image of a full body ghost with their heat camera. Its a great show, and I'm glad its back on, it gives Karen and I something to distract us from all our wedding stress. Less than two months to go and the clock is ticking!!! I drew this drawing while I was "goofing off" at work last year, but I finally got around to coloring in digitally. I tried some "new" techinique in coloring (and new as in new to me) where I section out the areas where light is hitting rather than where there's shadow. I don't know if I did it completely right, but I like the end result
