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.
This guys the coolest. Only reason to want to draw a Spidey comic is to draw this guy. THIS GUY.
Also, his name makes me think of the raddest song ever http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qq4j1LtCdww

So a while ago, we made a comic called “Blazing Fantasy”. It took a long time, A LOT of hours, and a lot of individual talents to make it work. It took Norman Guerre (photographer/creator), Tom Guise (writer/creator), Niki (Makeup), Loretta (model) and myself to get these 10 pages out, and I can only hope we get the opportunity to make more some day.
Anyways, the story was outlined for another 10 or 12 chapters, and we had posters planned plugging each one, like Chapter breaks. Here’s the first 2.
I really should finish the rest.
