Haha! All of these are aces, but "What The Cat" is magical!

These are great, Tiff! Are you working on a Wacom? Quick tip for maintaining all of the detail in your line work: After you scan in your pencil drawing, double click it to change it from a BG layer to a regular layer. Then select "Multiply" for that pencil layer in the layer property drop down. You can then create subsequent layers under your main layer, add color, etc., without altering your main pencil drawing at all. Can't wait to see more!

Isn't Shake Shack the best? They just opened one up right by us here at Nick. The line is always out the door, but man, those burgers sure are worth the wait:)

Caught "Inception" as well. I really dug it, but didn't think it was the "second coming" of film as we know it. Loved the way the film built to that dream upon dream upon dream crescendo, and the "Hallway Fight" was pretty damn cool! "Breaking Bad" is an incredible show! You're going to be shocked where it goes. Stay with it if your interest is only piqued right now. It's one of the best dramas on the tele right now! "Limbo" hit the Xbox today! I nabbed it this morning to avoid the rush. I'm DYING to get home to play it tonight!! The reviews have been stellar!

C’mon DC. Is this REALLY the best design the uber-talented Jim Lee could come up with for Wonder Woman’s new look? Sigh. For those not in the know, Wonder Woman #600 hits comic stores today headed by a new creative team, and thus the obligatory changing of the guards must... Continue reading

Being a BIG fan of this film, I had to post this. It’s not particularly funny per se, but the lyrics are very, very clever (if you know the flick as well as I do). The song is pretty catchy too. Enjoy! -Mooch- Continue reading

Oh man. Miyazaki. Studio Ghibli. PS3. Yeah, let that sink in before you watch the vid. The score alone warrants a purchase! I’m not sure as to how the game plays, but if you hang to the end of the video, you’ll see it almost looks a bit like DragonQuest... Continue reading

Stunning skeletal art by Francois Robert, who compiled human bones into images of Western religious symbols and weapons of war. It’s a powerful piece of work, both elegant and horrifying. The series is called “Stop the Violence”. You can see more here via -M- Continue reading

If I were any greener, I'd be lime jello! That's INCREDIBLE! But by proxy, you've got an in now too, yes? You must share on your blog if Chahi ever bestows any "Another World" information when in your company! Puh-lease! SO cool:)

And lo, when the dust settled from the last bomb dropped, they dragged themselves from the wreckage. With silent sobs they held the shards of everything they once held dear, now reduced to a distant memory of days that will never come again. With every labored footfall they trudge the...

Out of everything I've seen in regards to games this week, ThatGameCompany's newest project in development, "Journey", has me more excited than anything. It sounds absolutely magical, especially when you take into account how incredible their previous games have been. Can't wait for this! Read about the game here on... Continue reading

In-between the haze of gunsmoke and clanging of spent shells of Red Dead’s wild, wild west, Sanja and I have been enjoying copious amounts of co-op play in the new Super Mario Bros. on Wii. It’s beyond fun, even though it can lead to some frustrating moments (thank you “bubble”... Continue reading

A simple exercise in distraction. I was reading the latest issue of “Antenna” and they had a feature called "Person, First", where an individual chronicled their day via a slew of first person shots. I thought it was a fun idea, and worth a try, so, I decided to do... Continue reading

Thanks much Tiff! Glad you like! I don't mind at all, "Meatball" sold for $250. It was a small piece, so I felt the price was justified, even though I loved it so. Are you showing work at a gallery and looking for a ballpark for pricing your pieces?

Love the drawing! They say the Devil’s in the details, and if that’s true, then your drawing is ruler of all of Hades! And how great is Little Dragon? I’ve only recently become aware of her from her appearance on the Gorillaz “Plastic Beach” album. I downloaded “Machine Dreams” a few days ago and I’m really digging it. Favorite tracks so far are “Never Never” and “My Step”. Man, when she sings the hook in “My Step” it kills me. SO good!

My blog's been in desperate need of an art post, so I figured I'd share a few paintings I did for last September's "Too Art 4 TV" show I had the pleasure to be a part of. "Too Art" celebrates the wildly talented animation scene here in New York, and... Continue reading

Hmmm. Did some quick digging on this one. Seems a direct sequel might not be what Hideki's focusing on: In an interview with Game Informer, Platinum Games director Hideki Kamiya explains: "We obviously have love for the work we have created, so I don't see anything wrong with Bayonetta 2. Personally, I'd like to approach the world of Bayonetta from a different angle, in the form of a spin-off." The obvious choice would be Jeanne, yes? Unless he creates an all new character. It would be sick if you got to play the game from the opposing viewpoint, as one of the forces of Jubileus. It'd be like digital 'shrooms or something... If it's Luka though, god help us all...

My pleasure Tiff. Great post, great conversation started as a result. When you've got a free moment, you should give either or of the recent Tomb Raider's a whirl. I enjoyed "Underworld" quite a bit. It's a shame it didn't sell that well... And, yeah, that Sheeva costume is re-goddam-diculous. It's a head shaker... @Giolon: Ah, but it seems it would have to do with a romantic male lead, or at the very least, a living male lead, no? I don't remember every bit of dialogue from "Underworld", but Lara's father has been dead for quite some time. In essence it's very much like referring to King Arthur or Thor. More of a presence than an actuality. And this just occurred to me. Bayonetta sold like gangbusters, yes? Can you even imagine what Hideki has in store for the sequel?? Whoo-boy.
