Annie Poem

Hopefully a big step up from the pencil version. I guess this has Tim Burton's influence without stepping on his toes as far as style goes. You know, dark characters with a sense of humor. A light side.

Also, there's a lot of gimmicky 'goth' characters all over stores like Hot Topic and whatever. It kind of cheapens the genre. To me anyway. I just want to create characters with a little more substance...not just icons. That's one of the reasons why I like Tim Burton. His characters are real, not just sticker-and-lunch-box-fodder. You can stick them in just about any situation and come up with a fun story. Just my thoughts.... ;)

Scrap the Bandit Metal Slime

I used to play a lot of videogames and still do when I get the chance. One of the first games I got was 'Dragon Warrior' (aka Dragon Quest) which came free with a Nintendo Power subscription. The slimes that were in the game are super popular since Dragon Quest is up to part VIII now with more coming out this year.

This painting I did after work a while back with a goal to finish that night. I could've made a detailed painting out of it like making the background more like a map but this was more just for fun. 'Scrap the Bandit Metal Slime' is what I call him.

Look at all these toys they have just for these slimes!:

Maggoty Anne & Patches

There's a short poem that'll go with this but I'll put it onto the colored version whenever I get around to doing it. I want to do a different color scheme than the Midnight Pumpkin Panic piece (see below May 15, 2006). Please lemme know what you think!

Trixie the Psycho Bitch Cereal

If you look at a lot of art blogs, you've probably seen a lot of people doing cereal box covers for a book called "Cereal Killers." Well this is the one was done in Flash awhile back. Buy the book whenever it comes out! ;)
