Musical Relations With THAT Woman

In honor of President's Day earlier in the week, The Line It Is Drawn paid tribute to a handful of our nation's most memorable leaders over at Comics Should Be Good. I seriously love each artist's unique sense of humor. What a great collection of funny and talented folks!

Check out our pieces HERE or click the image of my piece below to go straight to this week's feature!


I'm very much looking forward to next week's pieces. Prepare... 'cause there will some heaters to come then. It's about to get heavy.

Peace.

I Was Literally Breathless

Sup, friends? How have you been?

I'm back! I got really sick this week so I couldn't submit for the current installment of The Line It Is Drawn over at Comics Should Be Good (THE best comic book blog site, in case you didn't know), but I couldn't leave the faithful and loyal readers hangin' with their record-breaking 120(!) suggestions for the week. And what a week it is! The theme? Music album cover homages. The art? AMAZING. So, please... I implore you to check out the greatness that The Line Artists cooked up HERE.

So so fresh, right?? Let 'em know!

I couldn't miss out on the fun despite my pitiful state, so I attacked my illo with the juice I had left in reserve. Peep what I came up with HERE.


As always, thanks so much to Sir Brian Cronin and CSBG for featuring my piece! I hope you all enjoy it!

Peace.

I Love SFIAAFF!

The San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival is literally one of the two things I look most forward to every year. (The other being San Diego Comic-Con International.) So when it announced that it's holding a Best Fest Shirt Contest, I jumped at the chance to show love! I designed what you see below, but I ended up not submitting because I lacked confidence in my final design. But I promise I still love the festival!


I chose to play off the theme of "Stories To Light," which was one of the elements in the submission package from where designers were to draw inspiration. I used a film strip visual in horizontal view to evoke a subtle storybook feel. Since we're oriented reading from left-to-right, I used direction to suggest that the Asian American Film Festival will bring "stories to light," as symbolized by the following frame with a portion of a film reel.

After looking at the top 3 contenders, I realized that they're using a total of 2 colors, which includes the ones in the lock-up. The asphalt doesn't count as that will be the color of the t-shirt. I thought the specifications meant up to 2 colors, not including what's already in the lock-up. Whoops! So here's another pass.


I encourage everyone to vote for any of the finalists whose design you like best! You can do that in SFIAAFF's Facebook page HERE.

I hope to see you at the event!

Peace.

Gotham City Love

Here we go! This week's The Line It Is Drawn is up over at Comics Should Be Good! Topic of the week is comic book cover homages! I didn't hesitate to choose the Astonishing X-Men 6 cover, but with The Question and Batwoman. I love these characters so much, I had to represent for them. What I did hesitate with was to put the trade dress on. hahah No more! Here, I present the image with its logos and such. Check out the undressed version HERE and show some love for the artists who knocked it outta the park with their pieces. Better and better!!


Peace.
