Every Week! Robotic Madness - Free Web Comic by Jason May - Robots, Butterflies, Monsters, Evil Robots and Much More!
I haven't really been keeping up with my weekly art blog, but I have been uploading a weekly web comic for quite some time. I'm hoping to start posting art there each week on a Wednesday or a Friday. Hopefully I can start fitting that into my schedule along with freelance and family life.
Drop by the Slyde Handplane graphics contest and give me your vote! I just entered this image, "Under Toe-bot" for consideration. Simply visit the Facebook link, by clicking here. Cast your vote and I'll be one step closer to winning the contest AND getting some extra exposure for Robotic Madness. Share it on Twitter and Facebook please and let's see how many votes I can get! Thanks guys! See you on Madness Monday for another installment of Robotic Madness, with everyone's favorite robot, G.A.R.K.
Since I don't have enough to do, my buddy Peter and I have set out to create our own skateboards. If you've read my blogs enough, you know I like to go all out when I make something from scratch. I may have some videos and pictures coming soon documenting the process. But until I have visual proof, enjoy the moch-up I made of my awesome twin tipped, robot-squid drop deck design. I really can't wait to finish this deck. I'm going to call upon my good buddies to help me out with the graphics. It will be the same awesome quality as the INSANE banner that was printed for my New York Comic Con appearance. Stay tuned.
Jason Copland and Michael May (no relation) have a great web comic called Kill All Monsters. It's updated weekly on Fridays. I always tune in and check out the new pages. I really enjoy the story. It's an action packed all out monster squishing spree drawn in a nice gritty loose style. I asked Jason Copland (the artist) to send some sample images of one of the robots so I could do a pinup. Here is what I came up with. Hope you enjoy. Be sure to go check out their comic!
I was very scepticalabout these "blocks." They are essentially biodegradable packing peanuts. I'm assuming you can use starch style peanuts in the same manner. You would just be limited by the colors packing stores offer.
I sat down with the family and we laid out the blocks. Of course, I had to join in. After helping folks get the hang of attaching them, I started on my robotic masterpiece. I will also share a few creations from my six year old, four year old and two year old. Enjoy the show.
I've been working on a robot model for a friend of mine. I can now ink and color simultaneously with the new tablet PC I just purchased. It is a fun new technique that I've been look forward to trying for some time. This robot is now finished and passed along to the animator, but I thought this 'in-progress' image would be something for you fans to see.
The orders have begun and I'm ready to paint or draw you a robot. Of course, I will also sketch other characters of your choosing. Please contact me via the commissions page to request your card today.
If you are not familiar with sketch cards I will take this time to explain. This is a hand painted card. Every card is different. None of these are prints, but individual pieces of artwork.
Trying out the new tablet. I picked up a HP TM2 and have been satisfied with the purchase. Simple sketching is quick and easy and I look forward to quickly producing some comic artwork. I may use the tablet in this years 24 hour comic day.
I figured it would be nice of me to sprinkle in some new art during my 'OLD ART' posting that will be continuing for the next few weeks. A friend of mine has been asking me for a while to paint this robot. So, that's what I did today.
