Vote for my art (only if you think it worthy...)

Hey kids-
There is an online art competition of which I am a part.
It's on a very well-trafficked comix website called "Comic Book Resources" & the entry that gets the most votes gets a permanent slot in their weekly roundtable of artists (& hence some nice exposure for their work).
As much as I'd like the work to stand on its own merits (I think it's pretty good piece), there is a whole lot of social networking going on & folks are calling out their troops as it were.
So I'd like to ask you all to take a look at my drawing (at the first link) & if (& only if ) you feel it's one of the strongest of the bunch, please vote at the poll at the second link.

Thanks for your support...
Here's the piece~
& go here to see it @ the site itself:

& then you vote here (my name is about two thirds the way down; please also consider voting for one or two other artists you may enjoy as well):

Thanks again good internet folks.

Speaking of Lines...

As I ruminate on the "Prince Spaceknight" piece, I'm starting to think it was actually stronger in black & white, so I wanted to share that version as well, in case some of you kids may agree.
Now the inks were not completely finished as I intended to color it all along & planned to add details in that process, but I think you can still get the gist of it.

The Line it is Drawn

Hey kids-
Over at "Comic Book Resources", a wonderful (& heavily trafficked) website about comix & such, you can see this here piece~
It's part of a competition those cats are running to find a permanent artist for that gig. The theme was to "superfy (I prefer "superfly") a celebrity. If you like the piece, please feel free to visit the site & comment, but only if when checking out the rest of the work, you truly feel it's one of the best posted (natch). (I say this only because a few other artists are stuffing the ballot box as it were with comments from friends & family, & I really wanna win this thang fair & square if at all possible.)
I'll be doing another piece on Thursday & will post then as well, which is I believe when the voting starts in earnest, so please do check back, true believers!

Fear of a Jack Planet

Ch-ch-check it out...
My boy, Jack Marley, is quite the musical genius indeed, if I do say so myself. Of course, this opinion is incredibly unbiased. The aforementioned declaration of his extraordinary talent (& dashing good looks (only one of which he gets from me!)) is simply truth, my friends, & I can prove its veracity by having you all point your little mouses over here:

Enjoy this sneak preview of a young superstar who is destined to rock many more garages- as well as concert halls & stadiums...
A new rock god is born.

diez milésimos (or "a bridge too far 2: electric boogaloo")

Well, howzabout that... 10,000 folks have visited this here site (actually, probably more like 37; the other 9,963 were just me checking how many people came by). I guess that deserves a new post or something, so here ya' go:
I love bridges. Don't know why, just do. Earlier this year, my lovely bride & I redid our cuarto de baño & we had a wall to fill, so I did this piece...

& if more than seven folks comment,
I'll consider posting more often.
The gauntlet is thrown, kids...

Colbert Portrait: "It Takes A Village, People!"

Stephen Colbert, an old friend of this blog (read: named in a lawsuit by yours truly) & host of my ten year old son's favorite show, "The Colbert Report", announced an art contest of sorts wherein he challenged artists to reinterpret his portrait. My lovely bride & our equally wonderful son encouraged (read: forced) me to contribute a piece which after doing was very glad to have done. Alas & alack, there has been utterly no response from the Colbert camp. He has since only changed the portrait once (duck feet? really?!) & seems to have lost interest in the whole shebang. To add insult to injury, the website just updated the online gallery a hundred-fold & my piece is artis non grata. sigh.
So I thought I'd at least post it here so the ten of you who may still read this thing might see it.
The title is, of course,
"It Takes A Village, People!"
(mebbe the intern who reads the e-mails at the show doesn't know who the Village People are?!)
Gosh, comments sure would be appreciated...
