There is an absolute creative mind field in progress in my apartment right now. Busting it out every which way but loose.
And don't you love it when the Ipod shuffler plays all the hits?
I sure do.

This is something I got inspired by from the DW message boards sketch challenge-- my warm up sketch that started to evolve before i hit some boards.
It's FALCON...my version.
Well- technically it's not my "version"- i once worked with a fellow who was BIG into Exiles (the comicbook) and i knew basically nothing about the comic at the time- But he had some crazy ideals about it that would be awesome to bring to life...
But this is unfinished as of yet- BUT i will finish before friday because that's the sketch deadline and all that beat the clock stuff.
Here it tis'

A re-doodle (meaning I inked it from a copy of the original) I did while i sat @ Joe's Coffee shop.
Been feeling like dogshit today. It's time to make some changes in my diet fo' shizzle.We ("WE" being myself and my other half, Skute-a-licious) are doing a hardcore cleansing diet thingie that she's getting me into. It's suppose to clean you out,up and down and make you right again.
I don't know that I feel like i'm "looking forward" to that...But i am looking forward to cleaning out the pipes and getting back into some sort of shape- because the bad number ( 36) is looming and I want to be more healthy and all that shit.
We are also getting rid of the internet. Which is becoming somewhat of a time waster.At least for a month. So it will be interesting to see how much output i can get "out" without getting "sucked in" if you know what i mean?
BUT- have no fear- I will try to take good old CLAIREBENNET ( my MACbook) to the coffee shop to update you on all the latest fits of ALIEN TECHNOLOGY.
Thanks for stopping and...

This is a commissioned piece I picked up from a very nice couple during Wondercon08.
I'm starting to realize where some of my major weaknesses are...
I'm a BIG re-doer. Never satisfied. Always thinking..."Nope...Not right" as I'm reaching for the eraser. I realized this @ WWLA. I also realize I can overwork some drawings. I am working on that as well.
This is a "simplified version" of a drawing.The original idea was wayyy more involved. So i channeled the little detail freak in me into smaller things that deserved such attention...Like Spidey's webs for example.
I really like doing the webs.
Anywayz- As always I did some pretty sweet pieces ( IMO) for some peeps @ WWLA...Let's see if I can remember the list without cheating and looking at my list book...
Storm Shadow and Wolverine- actually this piece was for another nice couple who I met @ Wondercon (Ginger and Justin,I do believe)...These two kinda sorta go together like peanut butta and jam if you know what i mean. I really liked that one came out pretty good. That was a re-do too.
I did two sweet Spideys.One had pumpkin bombs being hurled at him.
Green Latern (Hal Jordan).
Batman vs Supes (Frank Miller Dark Knight style) which I spent alonggggg time on. Long. Came out pretty ok. Batman is basically dislocating Supes jaw. As it should be right?
And finally I did a Ghostrider piece for a guy named Erin. Erin was digging my GR piece in my portfolio and was around and about when the guys from Marvel told me that I was going to be getting that assignment.
Erin immediately said he wanted the rider.
'RAW as Hell" i do belive was what he said.

"Do you Believe in Magic Magic"
Anyone esle remember that scene in Ghostbusters when the Ghostbusters HQ containment thingie gets shut down and all the ghosts and whatever get out?
That crazy Magic song is playing in the background?
So i just got this sketch back from Mikk. A nice fellow who asked me to do a Nico sketch for him @ Wondercon.
He tells me he'd like to see me on Runaways...hmmmm.
Thought I'd share the pic. Excited for next weekend in LA to do some more sketches man!! Bring the pain!

Big week...Trying to get things finished before WWLA next week. Blasting off on Weds to head to Silverlake and hang out with my good buddy Capt. Awesome who is an amazing sculptor over @ Gentle Giant Studios...You can see more of his and his co-workers badassness here...
I'm working alot to catch up with some Commissions I took on before I get to WWLA to hopefully...You guessed it "take on more".
This is one of them. It came out pretty good. I worked on it here and there during my warm-ups for Spidey. I like drawing the HULK. I like drawing angry stuff...ha. Get's the lead out.
I just got word that I got another BIG project on the horizon from the House of Ideas...This is a project I have been JonesN' to do for alooooooooong time.
Hopefully I can announce it "officially" soon. Watch this space...

The Battle continues.
Busy busy busy. Getting very close to the finishing point on this ( Thank God).
It's classic Spidey in webheaded fashion. The thing i enjoy the most about it looking back in hindsight is the webs.
I love drawing them. I could go for hours on them. ( and i guess i do).
Working on a couple of commission pieces as well that's i'll post in the next couple of days before I bounce to LA for more con madness @ WWLA.
Hopefully true believers I will see you there!
