Yesterday I gave you Breaking Bad paper dolls. Today, I give you, thanks to NursingSchools.net, Breaking Bad by the Numbers.
Two of my favorite things are 1] the tv series Breaking Bad and 2] art. Combine the two and you could come up with Breaking Bad art for paper dolls. Illustrator, Kyle Hilton did. They’re pretty cool. And this is coming from a guy who normally would say that about paper dolls.
You can check out Kyle’s art at his blog [and he does much more than paper dolls].
Today Jack “The King” Kirby would have been 94 years old. It’s our loss that he’s no longer with us. Yet, he created so many characters universes that we will always have plenty of his art/stories to enjoy.
When I was a kid, I loved Jack Kirby’s work on Captain America, Rawhide Kid and especially Mister Miracle. Then when I got a bit older, I stopped enjoying Mr. Kirby’s output. I had moved on to more mature comics… or at least that’s how I looked at it then. Now I see I was missing out on the work of a legend.
The amazing Kelsey Shannon makes his return to the SZ Gallery. Kelsey has worked in comics, animation, and film. He can pencil, ink and color. Kelsey plays a mean game of hacki-sack and he’s one of the nicest and most talented people that you could ever meet. Kelsey surprised me with his take on Sly as Captain America. How cool.
I got my first piece from Kelsey, back in 2002. He also surprised me with it! Then I actually got to meet Kelsey at Heroes Con in 2004. At that show he did me, this cool take on Sly as Jack Carter. It’s still one of my favorites riffs on Sly as Carter. I think we’re going to have to get Kelsey back to MegaCon or Heroes and bribe him for more sketches. If I bring big blocks of cheese it might work.
UFC 134 results are in. They say, “Two out of three ain’t bad” and that’s the best I could muster with my picks…
UFC 134 is tonight. Let’s go right to my picks…
I’ve always had mixed feelings about Jerry Lewis and the MDA telethon. It really surprised me to find out that the MDA basically dropped Mr. Lewis without so much as a fare-thee-well. But love him or hate him, don’t you think that after 130 years as the host, Jerry Lewis should be allowed to go out in style?
Robbi Rodroguez did a Rocky sketch for me at last year’s Heroes Convention. When I saw that Robbi was going to be at Heroes again this year and was taking commissions early, I asked for an iconic black and white piece of Sly as Jack Carter. Robbi knew exactly what I was looking for and came through like a champ with this piece. I was totally blown away.
So I requested another Stallone piece, this time totally of Robbi’s choosing. He decided to go with Sly as Machine Gun Joe Viterbo from Death Race 2000. It was a unique choice that I quickly got behind. Robbi not only drew Machine Gun Joe standing in his race car with a smoking machine gun, but threw in Joe’s co-pilot as well. I can’t say enough great things about Robbi’s commissions except that I want another!
Buzzfeed.com posted a piece about 10 Famous Fictional Characters You Didn’t Know Were Based on Real People. It’s a fun read.
My buddy, Mike Torrance aka The Krayola Kidd is back. This time Mike brought a couple of friends with him. That’s Gabriel Cash on the left and Ray Tango on the right. Mike created the cards for me as reward for winning one of his free monthly sketch card contests. Love the movie, dig the art.
You can see more of Mike’s art at The Daily Sketch with The Krayola Kidd and his Deviant Art site. Mike is available for commissions and his prices are very reasonable. And don’t forget that once a month Mike has a contest for someone to win a free sketchcard!
