Funny Ha Ha's

eD has finally started his own Blog of Funny Ha Ha's. While we encourage eDz creativity, we do not always want to be related to his humor, hence the separate Blog for himself where he can let his Ha Ha's roam free. This will not interfere with his SSP work, it may actually help it, but we shall see about that in the future.

Painting Update

Before eD went off to Comic-Con he sent me a Work In Progress (WIP) picture of the Nerf gun that he was customizing. He said that the initial painting is completed, and once he gets back from Comic-Con he is going to start working on the airbrushed details and other ideas that he had. I was a little concerned about how this project was going to turn out, thinking that he would make it all cartoony and goofy. I think it is looking really cool so far, but I will let you be the judge...

Other Comic-Con Randomness

I was able to get two Head sketches from artist Sean "Cheeks" Galloway who created the concept art for the characters in the animated Hellboy cartoons, as well as, The Spectacular Spider-Man animated series, so I asked him to do head sketches of Doc Ock and my fave spidey villain Green Goblin.
I also got to meet Joe Ledbetter for the first time which was awesome. he signed my book and then after talking to him for a bit he offered to do a sketch in my book for me as well. How could I pass that up?
I got so much inspiration from Comic-Con it isn't even funny. My feet and back are sore from walking around so much the last few days, but I am going to put that inspiration into work and should have some interesting things this week to post.

Comic-Con Day 3

Started out super early to get in as soon as the con opened (@ 9:30 am). There was a Rob Zombie signing at 10 am, which I was really hoping to get to on time. As soon as the doors opened we rushed to the G4 booth in the back where the signing was going to take place, but by the time we got there the line was long and there would only be a finite amount of autographs that Mr. Zombie would do, and we were too late. very sad, but we wandered some more before going to the Family Guy panel (for the new star wars spoof episode), which then ran into the panel for the Cleveland Show where we saw some clips and listened to stories, new and a Q&A from the voice actors and creators. After that I went to get an autograph from John K (of Spumco creator of Ren & Stimpy). I was able to actually get him to sketch me and got a picture with him and Kali (i think John K's cartoonist daughter) who did a sketch of a bikini clad girl for me as well. After that we wandered some more I got more signatures and a sketch in a book from Joe Ledbetter, and then our last panel which was for Black Dynamite. That movie is going to be awesome!

Comic-Con Day 2

We started off the day around 10 am and wandered the con for a few hours before getting in line for the "9" panel. We stood in line for over 2 hours and totally missed the panel and the trailer for Legion (the next panel), but we were able to watch the panel and Q&A for it which made it sound cool. Next was the "District 9" panel with Peter Jackson and looks amazing (comes out Aug 14th my sisters B-day!). We wandered the con more and I was able to meet Stan Sakai (creator/artist/writer of Usagi Yojimbo) and get a sketch and picture. More wandering until the "worst cartoons ever" panel with some old cartoons that didn't quite seem like they were for kids, kinda funny. After that we called it a night and went back to the hotel.

First Day of Comic-Con

Got to comic con in time for john k creator of ren and stimpy's panel. it was awesome! Then we watched a screening of a new horror movie "Trick r Treat", which was very good. The kind of horror movie there should be more of.

more news once I get all the pictures on my computer.

eDz Paint Studio

eD has finally finished setting up his paint studio in his garage. here is a short video to give anyone interested a look at his ghetto fab' studio.

He plans to use this space for customizing toys, as well as, experimental painting and as much fun as he can have with paint cans and brushes. Hopefully it won't be too long before we can actually see some painted artwork awesomeness.
