How could YOU be so Heartless?

For all those who wanna hate on Kanye West for what he did at the VMA's, Come on really? Its Kanye, If anything, ya'll shoud have expected that kind of behavior. I'm not saying its right, but he does have a history of that kind of behavior. Yeah, I thought it was a tacky but I also thought it was hilariously entertaining. I wouldn't be surprised if the whole thing was orchastrated by MTV to get ratings. Am I the only one who noticed how the camera cut to Pink before anything even went down. And when it was all said and done, Pink was dissing him first along with Katie Perry, which whom Mr. west mentions in a verse on the song Hate (off the Blueprint 3 album). That line seemed to fit all too well what was going down at the VMA's. As for Taylor Swift, Kanye probabley just indirectly (or Directly) doubled her fan base. So If she wants to cry about her perfect moment being ruined (which I might add, she herself didn't even try to save) she can wipe away her crocidile tears with the thousands of dollar bills that she has.
I understand why Kanye was upset but he could have definitly handled things alot differently. Complaining to the very people who control the injustice dosen't get you anywhere. Its like what Q-tip (of a tribe called quest) said,
"Industry rule number 4080
record company people are shaaadyyy"
I think people are really just mad at the ugly side of entertainment politics that Kanye tried to reveal to us in a brutally honest way.
I don't understand why the music industry praises musicians who claim to be drug dealers and murderers. but when a artist is alittle bit rude to a country singer, they wanna crucify them. according to the New Boyz, I thought it was cool to be a Jerk. Taylor's Mom even said that their are worse thing in the world to worry about then a imperfect awards show. If Taylor Swift and her Mom could forgive Mr. West, then we should also.

To Taylor Swift, congrats on the award and to Kanye, Keep speakin your mind, don't let the Man take away your freedom of speech.

ComicCon Colors

At the comic con I was fortunate enough to get a commissioned drawing of Storm by one of my favorite comic book artist. Humerto Ramos. For more of Humerto's work check out his blog at and don't forget to check out his new book "Ramos art-n-out"
Humerto's drawing of Storm was a perfect opportunity to brush up on my coloring techniques.
Also I posted a colored drawing of Luke Cage and Ironfist that I did.

MJ Wordplay

Do you remember the time
when his rhymes would coincide
with musical chimes
One of Five
Who’s ties still bind
He was ahead of his time
His sound was so refined
Some wanna diss
but this emcee will be missed
unlike his fans
his gift of song never lost consciousness
Its a shame how the media tarnished his name
God forbid to have a black man
with that much power and fame
I felt his pain
Its so disgusting it makes me wanna scream
These culture fiends
telling lies like Billie Jean
He tried with all his might
to unite black and white
His music lives on to continue the fight
I commend you MJ
In the most respectful ways
In the game for yearsand still getting radio play
He made it look as easy as A,B,C's
He was the life of the party
Entertaining P.Y.T's
in the US and overseasHis music was a thriller
he changed an era
his music couldn't be any illa
it changed the man in the mirror
He made it cool to be bad
his influence made some mad
but they couldn't beat it
if they hadthe fire of a Pepsi ad
They say he was pop
but I think not
He fused funk with soul
sprinkled in some hip-hop
He moon walks
amongst the heavens
so he remains on top
The smooth criminal on beat breaks
he influenced other musical greats for heavens sake
listen people
the king of pop is so regal
his influence even reached David Seigle
with flicks like Captain EO
He brought us the first music video
to air on TV screens
He was a dancing machine
I blamed it on the boogie
for what I had just seen
He could jam at any music scene
Speakers blastin
his songs filled with passion
his legacy everlastin
to everybody I'm askin
lets have a moment of silence
for Michael Jackson
Thank you for some of the most heart felt, rhythmatic, musical blends that transcends all genres.
He was...No he is the most well know, musical artist the world has ever had the pleasure of listening to.
Rest in peace Michael.

Cartoon Carver

Heres a couple of doodles I did of one of my friends Mark Carver, We carpool to work every day so I couldn't help but see the comical side to his character. The first drawing was a quick caricature sketch I did when I first met him. After I got to know him alittle better I did a character design piece with a walk cycle complete with his famous catch phrase.
Check out some of Mark's work at
P.S. keep an eye out for a 3D version of Mr. Carver, modeled by Mr Carver, coming soon.

The dudes have envied him for so long

At my job they wanted all the employees to do a foamcore art project. It was a fun way to get to see everyones personal artistic talents. I decided to do a Pop-up presentation of one of my favorite cult classics, Superfly. I even have the theme song by the legendary Curtis Mayfield play if you press the "Push" button.

and yes the Pun is intended.

The Dark Colorist

As I was diggin in the crates for all the lovely caricatures I've collected over the years, I found this gem drawn by James Averett from way back when he worked at Sea World.

Because its such a good drawing I decided to try my hand at coloring it. Here's what I brought to the mix.
