RIP Macho Man Randy Savage

Saturday, May 21st, 2011

Sad to hear Macho Man passed away in a car accident yesterday. I’ve not watched the WWF since I was a lil fella, but was a fan back in the day. Peace out big guy.

You deserve it!

Evolution of the SQUID

Friday, May 20th, 2011

Its been over 6 years since I first drew my little squid mascot and hes remained fairly unchanged. Until now that is. As I move further along the design process for my SQUIDTANK shirts, I’m finding a need for him to evolve. I’ve been pretty reluctant to change his look, though with the shirt designs and potential comic needing a more versatile character, I’m finding his current design a little too restrictive. Hard to get expressions across without any eyeballs. My dilemma is how far do I go. At the moment I’m sitting comfortably with the second option though I may need a lil of number 3 thrown in. Its going to take some experimenting to get right and I’ll need to run him through a rigorous testing routine, but I’m sure I’ll work it out.

Rest assured, he will never go as far as number 4!

Gotta make my mind up

I wanted to have a play around with my quill pens and ink again, though its been a loooong time. So long in fact the ink had separated into a solid on the bottom, and watery layer on top. I thought I might be able to bring it back with some vigorous shaking, but to no avail. I used to enjoy inking with quills so I think I’ll go pick up some new fresh ink soon.
