ghosts of alcatraz

just an ensemble of head sketches and lighting practice , that i'd then deemed with a title...
since it actually kinda fit the cast of characters that seemed to manifest like ghosts from the exercise.

hmmm... i think facial hair was probably prohibited in alcatraz.
oh well.

i'm fleshing out an urban adventure story that takes place within a futuristic nyc...the surveillance panopticon plays a major starring role.
unfortunately,it's a backdrop that's becoming less science fiction and more 'science factual'
by the day.

from vectrex to ninja turtles

after seeing an old ad for a video game system i'd had as a kid,called vectrex...the 80's theme reminded me to post up the new color version of a pin up i'd done for a tmnt comic,over a decade ago.

i'd found it while looking through all of my old comic work,and felt compelled to throw down some hues on it,for some reason.

i'd simply consider it a quick "futile attempt to resuscitate an old b&w piece that i'd otherwise choose to forget about" type of color exercise.

this allowed me to analyze how much of my process and approach had changed since then,while also allowing me a chance to simply focus on the coloring.

synchronicity via polaroid

synchronicity...seems like the best way to describe the realization when your childhood past sometimes comes 'full circle' and collides with the present...and you get to witness the accident,within a fleeting window.

ya see...i'd been scannin various pages to eventually put up for sale,via the ware$ section up top...

one of which,was this aliens:havok page (pic above)...
then shortly after,that same parents stopped by,and my mom had brought over a buncha old pics of me and my sis.

while lookin through one of the albums,i'd run across this one,in particular...
and it was at that moment,i'd realized a fleeting synchron had just taken place.

(me and alien circa 79)

needless to say,i'd laughed at both the synchronicity...and also the fact that it looks like the rosary in the pic had fused to the back of my skull...or possibly shot out of it...though not surprising...since i was unwittingly holding the
evil dickhead alien that i'd eventually go on to draw in comics years later.

eh,so yeah...anyways,full circle.

*as a bonus's the commercial for the 'alien' toy from 79.
