ON MY BRAIN
Oy Geez what a weekóI guess thatís is why this installment
of "Whatís on My Brain" is a bit late. Not that Iím
going to blame any of it on Simon (heh) because having him here is great,
very productive, but can be a bit distracting at times. My main distraction
is from drawing. Basically having another artist in the studio drawing
all this amazing stuff makes me want to draw! So while Simon is cranking
away on his "Bible" illustrations, Iíve been spending
every second I can, mostly when I should be doing other work, drawing
on my "RRRR" project.
this nice shot, picture one, of the "dude" and I heading out
for our daily trip to the gymóitís is always good to have
one final smoke (see Simons hand) before getting your daily cardio in.
||So far Simon
has finished two of the three remaining paintings for the book, and is
well into the third, which he should finish the end of this week. Heíll
be on to the final ten pencil drawings next week. Iíll be sure to
give you all a sneak peek at the newest works here on "Whatís
on my Brain" in the weeks to come, in the mean time, picture two
is of one of the newest "doodles" heís been working up
I thought you like to see. Sorry about the bad repros, but these are just
studio snap shots and donít do the work any justice. |
we got out last Saturday to see our pal John, drummer for "System
of a Down" play here in LA, and man this guy (and System") really
knows how to blow the roof off the place! What a great show!!!! Iíll
tell you more of what happened after the show in my next noteóbut
for now Iíll just tease you with a photo Julie took of us all hanging
out in the studioóand no John said he wasnít pinching Simons
not sure how many of you guys get the Sci Fi channel, but if you do, you
might have seen Julie and I in a mini interview with William Shatner taking
shit about movies and what notóhereís a fun picture (#4) of
us with the big "Kirk" dude himself. Fun stuff, and he was a
super nice guy, which was great because weíd heard so many bad things
about him. Goes to show you everything people tell you isnít true.|
| We also
found time to get over to the latest "Glamour Con" here in LA
last week, which is always a great time as well. We signed at the Golden
Apple Comics booth, which was the store where Julie and I first met, and
had a blast. How could you not have a killer time in a convention filled
with 80 Playboy Playmates, and numerous other pin up babes?
Picture five is Julie posing with "Texas Barbie" whom Julie
not only photographed, but was one of our Heavy Metal models for cover
artist Lorenzo Sperlonga for the September 2003 issue. Nice girl and greatÖeyesÖ
photo here is of a dear friend of Julie and I, his name was Donald G.
Jackson, who passed away recently. He was a director, one that worked
to his own beat. He created with directing partner Scott Shaw "Zen"
film making, which is basically shooting with little or no script, improv
all the way, and let it all happen. Julie has been in abouot five of his
films, and Iíve acted (sorta) in another three. The photo here is
from my work in "Rock and Roll Cops" which I donít think
has been released yet. Donald is on the left, Scott Shaw in the center,
and you know the other guy. He will be missed.|
far a fun site pushes go, KR has added a new section of Animated
videos, and fantasy art. Amazing stuff, all worth taking a look at.
Weíre getting allot of the updates for all the other sections back
on track, except, "Shit the Dog" "Thumpín Guts"
and the "Very Angry Seven" but we should get those back on a
regular schedule so we can complete them soon. Iíve also been slacking
on the message boards a bit, mainly because Iíve been working on
a bunch of cool movie stuff weíll get to rap about soon. |
Okay, signing off for now, more fun coming soon.
