How’s it going? For those interested, here are some board clips from some of the recently aired season 4 eps of TMNT on Nickelodeon. Obviously I’ve only clipped the best drawn bits, because about 1000 panels in, this shit starts to get real fuckin’ ugly. These ones are alright though.
EP #401 “Beyond the known Universe”:
I don’t know if April actually zipped her suit up like that in the show (limitations of CG know no bounds), but I remember having a lot of fun drawing that one. I remember having ZERO FUN drawing the last group scene of the second shot. Some shots like that can take anywhere up to 60 different ahwhofuckincares…
EP #404 “The Outlaw Armaggon”:
Drawing insane homicidal alien sharks in robotic armour is definitely a high point in my career. Important to note I had THIS playing the entire 6 weeks of board time.
EP #407 “The Arena of Carnage”:
It’s crazy to think that over a year has passed since I drew this, because the laziness in the drawing of the crowds seem so fresh to me, haha. Thank heaven and all it’s angels for revisionist to make up for hack frauds like me.
If you’re into this sort of thing let me know and I’ll go fishing through my old boards for some other pretty shots.

THERE IT IS. THERE. IT. IS.
I have the capacity to come up with ONE PUN PER ANNUM, AND THERE. IT. IS.
I’m sorry. It’s a really big deal for me.
Work has been absolutely insane lately, and this is the first time I remember just drawing, without purpose or conscious thought, for the longest bloody time, and this is the result. I had One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest on in the bg and that movie has the best shapey heads of all time. Super fun to draw. Also, working digital like this is about the closest you can get to drawing with a ball point pen and not smudging the fuck out of everything as you go.
Also also, I’ve been listening exclusively to the Sleepcabin podcast lately. Good fucking lord dey sum funny doods.
For what feels like the first time in a year, I finished something that isn’t a ninja turtle doing something violent to a robot. But before this turns into an incredible sulk about having a job, check out this eyeball I drew:
Here’s another couple of versions. I really wish I studied traditional animation in school, but I guess I’ll just rip off Chung, and Koike and Imaishi until I get something that looks good.

We got the script for #305 over a year ago now, and it still remains one of my favourite episodes, namely for the dream sequences. The script itself called for something much different when the turtles had their respective nightmares, but we got loose writers and rad directors on turtles, and I had been dying to cram a metal sequence into tmnt since i started. I was stranded in Toronto with no digital equipment, so here’s some of the boards I supplied for our episode pitch:
Then when it came time to actually board the thing, i couldn’t help but put it to some Slayer…
And just in case you wanted to hear a man with no voice acting talent what-so-ever, here’s my pitch for the very first Crognard sequence for 301.
After these drawings there’s about a thousand other people and hours it goes through, and then it’s a tv show. Magic.
So the Anarchic SpiderMan made his official debut last week, and I have to thank EVERYONE who blogged, posted, twittered, and adjectived about it. You guys and girls are the best, and I’m sure I speak for Jed (the writer) when I say we are humbled by the buzz and praise you all generated. Solidly, Cheers. Big thanks to Nick Lowe also for putting up with my slow ass.
For those of you inquiring about SpiderPunk original sales, I will plug them as soon as they’re available. Should you happen to miss out on the piece you were after, hit me up at my mail and, schedule permitting, I’d gladly rock out some commissions.
Good way to kick off 2015. I’ve missed comics in a big way. Now let’s see if I can’t finish some other things I said I would and then bailed on coffSTARBONERcoffcoffSUPERTRONcoff…
Cheers all! xoxox
Not quite a B.O.F. but I’ll eventually be bringin those back. This was a red pencil sketch but I hit it with that ‘black/white’ filter in PS and it made it look waaaayyyy cooler. THX PHOTOSHAP. xoxo
My awesome canoscan lide50 has been deemed unworthy by windows 8 and so I’m taking photos of my sketches. Mannnn, I LOVE that scanner, it’s been so good to me. I’m not giving up on him…
I suppose if I do one, I gotta do them all. Just some fanarts, like I don’t draw them enough already haha xoxo
Tryin my hand at some animation stuffs. I think this is on “TWO’S”. Still using photoshop though. Does anyone know a program that’s made for animation, but has the image…things that photoshop does? Blending modes and gradients and shit? Hit me up xoxo
*EDIT: It’s on FOUR’S.
