Scrap from the Margins

WXF 21 Published!

After almost a year in the making, I am very pleased to finally announce the latest WXF "sunday" strip; #21!
Lets hope the others don't take nearly so long in coming! It was a serious journey from start to finish on this one. I may post that process in upcoming posts, but for now, I'm just breathing a sigh of relief! It doesn't seem like much, but this latest installment was the hardest so far and went through so many iterations before seeing the light of day. I hope the compression works out as it's a pretty big file, and that it's (fairly) readable. Here's to that! Enjoy!

Weight Watchers Watch Worker

Ok. A slightly interesting story behind this scrap. When I finished up college I had a pretty miserable job at a consumer research establishment. I wore several hats in that company, one of which was doing on the spot surveys inside other establishments. In this case a familiar "American-Cuisine" Restaurant. I showed up with my little clipboard during peak restaurant time and had to hang around feeling awkward, going from table to table asking the patrons if they were A. Ordering off of the Weight Watchers Menu. B. What they were ordering and C. (if they met my quota criteria) Would they, "please fill out this quick (15 minute) survey for"- what I think was a free Weight Watchers dessert. Misery. To mentally escape my fate I started these parts of the "Watch-Workers" during one of my dinner breaks with one of those tiny golf pencils. The drawings turned into cool animated creatures featured for a couple seconds in the Tales of The Tele-Gods Prologue. Until I dug this gem up, I didn't remember there being a connection between "Weight Watchers" and "Watch Workers" but there must be as I played the elaborate escapist creative naming-game. Someday I'd like to visit those dangerous creatures again...The Watch Workers...not the patrons.

psychobionic burble chirbble I'm pretty sure this was intended as an animation piece.

Cryptic Notes

I believe this was a scrap intended to be notes for a larger, longer project. The purpose escapes me now. The ambiguity now creates a self referential frame in which the drawing/word coupling ambiguifies any relational intention and elevates it to a fresher fine-art tier. Year (?) Unknown.

Hellas at Drive Thru RPG
I've noticed that the Khepera Publishing Hellas RPG that I've done some illustration work for has some sweet deals on the Drive-Thru RPG site right now.

Stonetooth Art Video

I took the last two pages of the giant-sized Handlers32 "epilogue" and made a little video out of the panels. Pretty fun. The Soundtrack came from an old Horror film.
