SCRIBBLES KICKSTARTER



Dear citizens of the internet,

I totally just launched a kickstarter today to print copies of my sketchbook "Scribbles" – which is a series of actual scribbles turned into drawings and stories. ch-ch-ch-check it out: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/thegreyninja/scribbles




Side note: please feel free to reblog, re-share, re-whatever to spread the word – I could really use all the help I can get. THANK YOU!!

Mariachi-Dachi on comiXology

long time no blog post.
just dropping in to say if you want a digital copy of my comic Mariachi-Dachi, it's totally now available on comixology. simply click on these specific words i just conveniently hyper-linked to quench your digital thirst for mariachi bands stranded in ancient Japan, today!


also, the fancy mini link in the picture works too, if conveniently hyper-linked words aren't your thing, and you'd rather work a bit harder and type it into your browser. but alas, i shall tempt you with one last hyper-link to try and simplify your life. http://cmxl.gy/1eaRqaZ

later!

SLComic Con

for those of you going - i've created this banner, and altered a highly detailed map which i stole from the internets, just for you:


i'll be selling prints, drawing stuff, will have copies of Mariachi-Dachi, and will be exchanging salutations of all sorts.  please stop by if you require any of those things.

later!

WoW: The Lucky Rabbit's Foot


here's the thing i did for :iconudoncrew:'s "World of Warcraft Tribute" book - www.udonentertainment.com/blog…
excited to finally get to show this one :]
copyright - blizzard entertainment 2013

still a bit silent on the bloggersphere/information super highway - but i have some good reasons:
1. still doing LOTS of fun character designs for a sweet freelance gig.
2. making comics about ninjas and graffiti.
3. life is better lived away from the computer.. (if there was a hyper link added to this one, it would take you to REAL LIFE.  get it? ...haha)

that is all.
hope you're all being awesome, and excellent to each other.
good day.

MIGHTY MOUTH



is now officially part of Mutant Mondays!! ...they grow up so fast. *sniff*

"He once bested a great wizard with a single 'yo mamma' joke.  Sorcerers and Enchantresses of the dark arts fell to their knees with his sharp comebacks and stinging whit.  Only equal to the power of his mouth was his might and skill with a blade - until one fateful day he was cursed by a very powerful and pissed-off pixie.  Now he wanders the realms mouthier and mightier than ever, known only as.. MIGHTY MOUTH!!"

go check out the rest of the mutants over there.  for they are RAD.

been a little silent as of late on the inter-verse..  a freelance job doing character designs fell from HEAVEN right into my lap.  which is cool, because i needed money/a source of income/looking for jobs can really suck sometimes.  next couple of months should be interesting...  (more interesting than your usual kind of interesting.. that's not cryptic at all, right?  haha..)

Dragonballs and Vikings




dragonball self-portrait. because flying nimbus is rad. and akira toriyama changed my life.  :]
finally got around to finishing this one - started it up 11/29/2011.  process in gif format this time instead - any process junkies out there have any opinion on gifs vs multiple still images they can flip back and forth from???  still can decide what i like better...  i'd rather just have people give me their psd files so i can dissect em myself ;)

oh.  also another one real quick i forgot to put up on blogger.  enter: Parasite Viking!



this started out as a drawing game 2 years ago  (where you just take turns drawing one thing onto a silhouette) between me and my wife (back when she was in girlfriend form.)
to try and keep up with the tradition of the first christmas present i gave her, i thought i’d paint this…   also finally got around to finishing it :]


later!

Split Ends: Tomb Raider Reborn

so.  here's another entry for a contest going down over at deviantart.  really hard not to resist doing anything when they tempt you with an after party hosted by Ben Franklin and a bunch of his homies.

anyway, if you're interested - i gots the step-by-step for this over on my tumblr.

also, here's a lovely free online game that was recently brought to my attention. Fear Less!  love the music, love the design... and the concept is on a higher psychological level that i TOTALLY dig.  kinda gave me the warm-fuzzies like Coma..     also Little Nemo, if we wanna go way back...  still love that game.   I have a suspicion that The Matrix was somewhat inspired by Winsor Mccay (author/illustrator of the original comic strips that inspired the game)  I mean, there's a king named "Morpheus," and Nemo original receives an invite to slumberland from some random chick (Trinity??) COINCIDENCE!?!? maybe. :]

just love games about sleep/dream/exploring the subconscious-y kinda stuff.
 if you know me, you know that i sleep. a lot. and for a LONG time..  left un-acted upon by an outside force, i'm usually in bed for 9-12 hours...  being asleep all this time, i've noticed things, and here's a few of them, while on this subject:

thing 1) when i'm actively writing down my dreams, they're easier to remember.

thing 2) not only do i remember them easier, but i remember more dreams than just one.

thing 3) when i'm in peek dream remembering condition, i can usually make out 5 dreams that happened in one night...  which is cool, if you think about the following:  a sleep cycle is about 90 minutes.  on average i'd get about 7 and a half hours of sleep... which averages out to FIVE SLEEP CYCLES.
does ONE DREAM = ONE SLEEP CYCLE?????  COINCIDENCE??!?! i have no idea....
goodnight everybody!
