October Sketch!!! DAY SURI!

And because nothing follows up a soulful Pals With the Big G post like violent action comics, here's a look at the cover for next year's Zombie Shark Bear Vol. 1 as my 3rd contribution to Octobersketch with the Nom Nom Collective crew!

PALS WITH THE BIG G: The need for reflection

It has been a while since I've had a chance to post regularly on my blog, something that I am very sorry to my followers for; but my artwork has actually been making progress on a regular basis over at Tapastic and I'm happy to say that we are approaching the half way point of Zombie Shark Bear Episode 1 (something that seemed so far away just a few months ago).

I intend to post ZSB here on the blog soon with some extra commentary. Also, I'll be posting that late review of Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist when the blu ray comes out, but I would definitely suggest watching it if you get the chance.

Anyway, as this is a "Pals with the Big G" post, it's going to be religion related, so if that's not really your thing this is the head's up- though I do think that mindful consideration of others' point of view is a good thing to consider (I certainly have gained from it).

Well, I'm posting this a lot later than I originally intended, but what the heck, at least it's getting done.

Last Friday, I had the awesome opportunity to take part in a Ninja-themed art show held by local art school, FX DOJO. You can see my entry above. It was fun and several of my artistic comrades took part as well. Best of all, both copies of my print sold out! For me that's a big first, and I hope that this continues through Comic Con! I'm also gearing up for a Star Wars-themed show in August, so this was a great way to get the ball rolling for that!

More images and links to great artwork below!

Breaking ground on Episode 1

After literal YEARS in development, I'm very excited to say that I have begun work on Zombie Shark Bear Episode 1. The title of the chapter will be "Break The Skin" and it will begin serialization on TAPASTIC on July 6th, just before the San Diego Comic Con 2014 and the tail end of Anime Expo 2014. It will also be posted to my Deviant Art website the following day.

As for the currently updating Episode 0, I will be posting it on this blog beginning June 16th, and it will see daily updates through July 2nd to coincide with the post date of the final page on Tapastic! I will also be including little bits of commentary with these posts that you won't see with the Tapastic or Deviant Art versions of the pages, just to give a little incentive to check out the blog!

There's a lot of new info coming up in the next few weeks, my next post will be reviewing the Street Fighter web series, Assassin's Fist; so please check it out!! I'll leave you all with the cover for Episode 1 of Zombie Shark Bear, just get things going!

Hey all!

Exciting times are on the horizon! I know it's been a slow couple of months, post wise, but that should start turning around soon as Comic Con grows closer! For today, I'm very excited to announce that my long gestating, much mentioned project, ZOMBIE SHARK BEAR, will FINALLY be starting its serialization over on TAPASTIC along with the continuing adventures of Pai and the gang in GREMLIN WORLD!! Both series will be updated on Wednesdays and Sundays at 12:00 PM PST.

Tapastic seems like a great platform for any aspiring independent comic artist to get off on the right foot, so if you've got an idea, it may be the place for you to get started! It's really easy to use, too, so don't be shy!!

More to come soon!

Hello all!

I'm finally getting around to doing a new blog post after several days/ weeks of silence. I'm happy to say that despite my quiet time on the blog, I have been working extremely hard on the aforementioned ZOMBIE SHARK BEAR project, and better yet, it's almost finished! Today I will be publishing a few pieces of test art for the project and will be posting the new chapter that will be included with the book over the next few days to see what you think of it!

Pals with the Big G- The Problem of Evil

Another philosophically/ religion-themed post, this was is my attempt at answering "The Problem of Evil." While the answer to the question is fully formed in my mind, putting it into words has been somewhat difficult, though I think what I've written gets the gist of my idea down. That said, I feel that this piece is a work in process that will need more work to be fully developed.

Duncan Dog is a short story I wrote several years ago as part of a creative writing class I was in during Junior College. To be completely honest, I wrote this story at the very last minute the day it was due, leaving me barely enough time to produce the copies required for distribution to the class. The reviews of the story were very positive, which is something I have been proud of since. I hope that you enjoy the story and encourage comments on it that I may use to improve future works! I will endeavor to produce more short stories on a somewhat consistent basis, so if you like Duncan Dog please check back again soon!

Pals with the Big G- The Omnipotence Paradox

Today whilst in the midst of some meditation, I came across something called "The Omnipotence Pardox" which asks the question (to summarize the concept of the paradox)-"If God is omnipotent can he create a stone that he cannot lift?"

I thought this was interesting question and after some thought I came to this conclusion...

Reading manga is probably my favorite hobby and it originally stemmed from my love of anime, however, as the "moe"- fad began to over shadow anime more and more, I came to distance myself from watching anime little by little, until it was several years since I had seriously followed a particular show. The past year or two, I have ventured back in to the realm of Japanese animation to watch shows like Chuunibyo Demo Koi ga Shitai! and Maoyuu, but the shows had to have a particular slant that I found interesting to draw me in- I was hyper critical about the anime I watched and easily dismissive of  shows that I thought had too much "moe."

This attitude has changed over the past month or so following the release of Studio Trigger's new series, Kill la Kill, which has essentially brought me back to watching anime on a regular basis. It was my joy to find that since I had been away, the production house behind Chuunibyo, Kyoto Animation, had created a hefty backlog of shows for me to watch; one of them being the slice-of-life/ mystery series, Hyouka.

Happy New Year's Resolutions!

(Late) Happy New Years, everyone!

After a really busy last part of 2013, I got to take things a little easier in December and get some much needed "me" time. As announced last month, Comic Con is a "go" for Aswembar Productions in 2014 and its time for us to get started on the projects this will entail. From myself, personally, this'll mean a new Zombie Shark Bear Project and a brand new story called about a ninja-wannabe named Jun.  There'll also be some Street Fighter fan art prints and stickers.
