It’s not Mac great…

…it’s MacTastik!

Yes, MacTastik is the newest venture in my online comic strip repertoire. Thanks to the great guys over at Envato, who have brought you such gems as Freelanceswitch.com and Creattica.com, not to mention the whole -TUTS series, including PSDTUTS and VECTORTUTS. The newest edition in their website arsenal is AppStorm.  A cool looking site, with focus on the best of the numerous applications for the Mac. My comic, MacTastik is thusly related to the myriad programs and general tomfoolery that comes with being a Mac owner. Hope you enjoy, check back every Friday for a new comic. Enjoy!


Some minor revisions…

…also known as ‘throw it away and start over’.

Freelance Freedom #6 is taken almost directly from my experiences in New York at my old advertising job. I worked as production manager with a great company and amazing art department. Everyone there was a lot of fun and we got the most insane criticisms from clients. I actually can’t take credit for “fonty”- it one hundred percent for reals came from a client. We all had frustrating fun interpreting some of the direction, but always made it happen in the end. I’ve had my own share of crazy client comments, but never as many as back in The City. Enjoy.

Some art for my birthday…

…more a gift for you, but who’s counting?

Yes, finally getting these on teh interwebs. This is the end result of some Daily Drawings. Originally doodles on paper with ballpoint and marker. The drawings are then fixed, cropped down, have their corners chopped off and then mounted to wood panels. The wood is just scrap from Home Depot, rounded, sanded and prepped for mounting. The whole shebang is then resined and good to go. They seem to sell pretty well, at $50 a pop and are a fun process for me. I really want to do a whole show at some point with hundreds of little drawing panels. They end up with the appearance of tiles, a la mahjong or dominoes. The resin does a great job of putting an even coating of thick shine and make them fun to look at, if that makes any sense. Enjoy!
