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.

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.

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
Everybody. I hope you’re as happy to hear from me, as I am to finally be talking to you. So…where to start? Probably an apology huh? Yeah let’s start there.
You people who would mail/tweet/msg/call me only to have your correspondence ignored, PLEASE accept my apologies, and I beg your forgiveness. You know who you are, and some of you are pretty fucking important. You’ll be hearing from me soon.
We square? We cool? Of course we are.
So what’s next? Oh yeah, “…WHERE THE FUCK HAVE YOU BEEN, SHELDONNNNN?!?!?”
I could spill a very boring novel on everything that has happened in the last…12 months, but who wants to read that shit? Life got bad, then life got good again, it happens to us all, round and round, love will find a way just give it time. I needed all the time and concentration to take care of some shit, and living off the grid cut down on a lot of distractions. All that really needs to be said is the good shit. So let’s get some dot point’s up in this bitch!
1. I MOVED BACK TO AUS: Got fat.
2. I QUIT COMICS: Kinda…sorta…not really.
3. MET LEMMY: speechless.
4. LOST WEIGHT: I lost weight.
5. GOT ANOTHER JOB: Storyboard artist for TMNT.
6. MOVED BACK TO USA: Got drunk.
7. GOT AN APARTMENT: a couch, a tv, and a SSN, bitchezzzzzz.
8. SAW DANZIG: Needed crutches for 2 weeks.
9. SHOT GUNS: Learned what it’s like having two dicks.
10. BOUGHT NEW SUIT: yay.
10. WENT TO VEGAS: HAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA.
11. BACK TO AUS: To say hi for christmas and get my motorhead poster.
And in a nutshell, that’s about it. I’m still sort of adjusting to the fact that my whole life got reinvented in the last 3 months, but this shit is fuckin’ wild. I’m living and working in a world now that only existed in my head when I was 8. It’s strange, it’s surreal, but I love it. I’ll still be arting/comicing/ranting whenever I can, but for now, I’m gonna eat some left over bbq and steal my dad’s car.
All my love to all my loves,
– Mr.Sheldon xoxo
What feels like a lifetime is more like 3 years since Jed and I collaborated together as WHAM F.P. But the drought has been broken by an ELECTRIC TSUNAMI, as we were honoured with an invitation to submit a short story to the now released X-men: To Serve and Protect series, Issue #4. It’s in stores today.
Jed was INVALUABLE in this project, since I know the same about mainstream superheroes past and present, as I do what it takes to please a lady. NOT VERY MUCH. I basically told Jed the kind of story I wanted to do, and then he set the sky on fire. Our Editor Nick was also a huge help. A couple of things got edited out/down, but the essence still remains. Check out the high-res coloured pages here.
He always does.
