This is the second on what at the moment feels like it could turn into a series. I’m really enjoying drawing these characters. I can have fun playing with the details thus making the drawing a little bit more elaborate than my sequential stuff. I’m making these drawings through what feels like tumultuous times in Puerto Rico. One has to fight to keep motivated and moving forward. I love making art, I love drawing cartoons, it’s in me. And luckily I am able to make this art with the simplest of tools and very very little money. You can do it just because you love it. Not all is bad. I’m going to have all of them for sale at the shop link on the menu. I will draw one and the next day I will have it for sale for very little, maybe from 25 to 50 dollars. I think it’s a reasonable price. I use to trow them away I should have hundreds if not thousands. I have no idea why I did that. If you’re digin’ my style and you also like my comics style art keep an eye. The sequential stuff might come a little less often because it’s a bit harder work, takes more time and effort even if it looks very simple. That’s why I love it, it’s like a puzzle. I’m going to try to post one a day, I’m going to try.
For those of you that also dig music I am listening to a record titled “Highmare” by a band called The Dead Pirates. It’s the shit. These dudes seriously rock. Buy their album.
New drawing up on the shop.
Here is one of my sketch pages that I have laying around right now. I’m probably going to share more of these, maybe. At the bottom right is a character I’ve been trying to create for a super short story. The lighter doodles, the ones in pencil is me just paying around with ideas. At the bottom left is a doodle drawn first in pencil then went over it with marker, I always think stuff like it could make a larger piece but I would have to enlarge it with a projector on to the “canvas” because I don’t feel comfortable drawing on a large scale. I rarely do it. I was watching some videos about seeds being the currency of the future. I’m watching “The Road” right now.
Over the years of showing my art on the internet I’ve experimented a little bit. If you take a look around on the website you will notice. I have mainly stuck to drawing because it is what I enjoy doing the most. I love doodling and I love drawing lines. A few years back I starting taking my art seriously mainly because of the encouragement of a friend. since then my main struggle has been finding meaning. I don’t have a lot of time to make art because I have a full time job, sometimes two plus Family is a priority to me. In trying to be productive with my art I have been trying to make too many things with out the time to do all the things I want to do. You can’t begin to imagine how many time I have had this awesome idea that I can never even begin to start on it. I’ve had a pile of newspapers in a corner of my home annoying the hell out of y wife for about a month now because of this paper mache project I have in mind that I really want to make but I don’t have the time. I keep switching between projects, mostly because I get bored and I want to try something different. So what time allows me to be more productive and satisfied is what I will work on now. Even if that means less updates and less content.
I have increasingly fallen in love with cartooning, or sequential art, or comics, whatever you want to call it. I got to a point where I said: I can draw these little “movies“, whatever I want to happen, I can create any character I need and I don’t need to pay them! And I can set my film in Mars and it don’t cost me a dime. Well… And the medium is so open for exploration and experimentation! Plus you have the freedom to create your own style and create art with the simplest of materials and you don’t need a lot of space. So if you like web comics, comics and you dig my style of cartoons, swing by every now and then I’ll be sharing some of my imaginings here in the form of sequential art. It’s one of the things I really want to create that time allows me to.

This morning was so chaotic. It seemed like the more I tried to keep things in control the more crazy it got. I stay positive.
