//crazeh crazeh crazeh//

Long time no postie eh? Life's been bizeh! Not to mention things have been crazy at work... in the "makes me want to sing angry screamy songs at karaoke and break stuff" kind of way. I'm over it now... but damn...

So I'm still working on getting something done up for the big Comic Artist talent search at Wizard World Philie... I'm nerveous as all hell too...

In the meanwhile I'm also writing up the script for the Azura Wasteland ashcan comic with my fiancee. Its coming along alright. We just gotta get it to our penciler Mark and have him work is magic. And I gotta finish the cover... >.< Then we gotta get it printed.

We're including business card "Trading Cards" with each comic... they're really neat! Each card has the hero's secret human identity on the front as a face shot (drawn by me) and on the back we have a full body shot of them in costume with the logo and their super hero name (drawn by Mark, inked and shaded by me). I designed the layout and we have one for each of the 5 main heroes. Everyone who's seen them so far LOVES them... said they were really original and awesome. Even my boss who knows a lot about marketing said it was a bril idea.

I do occasionally get those. :)

Here's a preview of the front and back of Stryker's card.

Pretty tight huh? Isn't mark a great artist? I luff his stuff!

ALSO! I did Muse up all 3D like! You can see her up top there on that banner thingamagig! Took me all tuesday night. From 7PM to 4AM. No wonder I'm tired. I made her face look kinda like mine... I think it works for her.

So, y'all please be sure to let me know what you think. I love hearing from y'all.

oh and on a side note... last night a drunk guy got me to dance with him at karaoke... that was interesting. Nothing happened though (i made sure of it) and I bet once Jason hears about this he will be laughing his ass off... I know I was the entire time.

//a gift to the talented sean "cheeks" galloway//

Cheeks is one of the most influencial artists in my life. He's really inspired me and his art has helped me develope my own personal style. He's really a great guy.

The other day he announced his resignation from doing the covers for the Teen Titans GO! comic. Issue #35 is his last cover. We will all miss his art for the covers very much. But in the meanwhile... I made this pic for him for all his great work and for his kindness over the past few months.

He's been a REAL big inspiration to me. He's also given me advice on how to get into the industry for which I am grateful for. So in honour of such a cool, talented, and all around nice dude... I bring you... Cheeky!

New piece... experimenting with shading.

She needs a bit of make up to cover up her morning face.

//hi, my name is alicia... and i am a primal addict//

Oh my God! I am a bit late in getting the game (by oh about 3 years) but I just beat the best game I have ever played in my entire life! Its called Primal and you play as characters Jennifer "Jen" Tate (a half demon girl with spunk and attitude) and Scree (the most adorable gargoyle a girl could ever have for a guide).

You have to guide them through the 4 realms of oblivion to save the worlds... and get Jen's boyfriend Lewis back from the baddies. For all its fun the game is a TOTAL time suck... and I loved every minute of it! But now that its over... I have my life back.

And I've been working on the comic some more! We've got a wonderful penciller for the interior art named Mark. Here is one of his pieces that I inked and coloured...

More AW art to come later.

//wizard world philidelphia... and the art audition//


I am trying for the big Wizard World / Wildstorm Comic book Artist talent search. I'm entering at the Philidelphia leg of the convention tour. If I win that round I move on to the Chicago leg... all expenses paid, to compete there.

I'm nerveous and excited all at once.

So if you want to help me make it please leave some remarks of encouragement and I need all the advice/critiques I can get until convention time which is June 2-4.

Also I will be giving out Ash Can comics of Azura Wasteland.

(If you want to help get me to Phillie financially, please consider buying my album for only $13.99. http://www.cdbaby.com/kaden )
