Met up with a group of talented and creative people last night! We are all on the west side of Los Angeles and we never get together. Steve had an idea to emulate a social get-together that goes on in Downtown LA, and start something on the Westside of LA. I think we are calling it The South Bay Drink N Draw.
Who showed up at this first gathering? Starting from the Left, it's Mike Mignola, Mike Wellman, Brian Buccellato and Don Hudson.There were stories told, laughs and more than a few beers served!
This Photo shows Steve Buccellato, Rich Starkings, Scott Koblish and Mignola.
It was a great time and I lasted way past my bedtime! There will be another get together next month and wonder if it will catch on. See you there!

I pencilled this story for The Savage Sword of Conan over 20 years ago and every time I look at it, I want to redraw it. That being said, I can really appreciate the inker. My pencils were bad, but ER Cruz and his powerful brushwork saved it.
Looking back at the story, I like it more than I did. I would like to see it in color.

The search continues. I tried out Blue Line Art Comic book art boards to see if it would stand up to pen, ink and brush.
The board is thin, so my choice of ink is important. I sometimes add formula 409 to adjust the consistency of my ink, so I will keep that in mind as I use the paper. Otherwise, I liked the paper.
It took the pencil well and I was able to cross-hatch on it.
I may look for a different weight, but I like the Blue Line Art Board so far!

I did some more art for the Jersey Boys show recently. They are doing a production in the Netherlands and need titles done in Dutch!
It's been a long road since the beginning in 2004. Take a look at the label to see some earlier JB posts!

As I walked the hot LA streets near the courthouse, I stepped inside the Bradbury Building. For those who don't know it, It's the place where they filmed parts of Blade Runner. Yes, those creepy interiors where Pris and Roy Batty hid out is not some made up set, but it looks a lot different in real life.
There is so much light! Not like the film at all. Also not a lot of fog or dripping pipes.

It was also educational and we enjoyed the event. I would recommend it, just bring a lot of money. A $4.50 ice cream cone is a bit steep.

I tried out a new brand of paper recently. Strathmore Bristol semi-smooth surface. I am looking for a new brand of comic size paper, so I got out the pencil and ink.
It was unsuccessful. I am used to paper that won't bleed when I use a Quill.
Maybe this board is meant for marker, because I could not be true to my own pencils because I kept getting snagged up.
I will keep looking for a good board.

Yes, my friend Brian writes The Flash for DC Comics! I was impressed to see a recent cover of the book at the Apple store in Santa Monica recently.
That's cool! He was also asked a curious question recently at a convention. Check out the video Here!

The new season of Mad men is just around the corner and I am exited to watch it! What really caught my eye is the teaser art on the advertising poster. Old school AD art from Brian Sanders! Really smart hire by the creatives over at AMC. Read the newspaper article HERE!

I was eager to see an original Leyendecker up close. I wanted to see his brush strokes and the true colors on the canvas. I only know his art from old magazines and 80 year old posters. It did not disappoint! The larger size paintings looked bright and well cared for, having been in one man's collection for years.
