501st Legion, Garrison Excelsior

I wish I would've posted these pictures sooner. Last weekend I went with some friends to the Syracuse Comic Book Expo. As far as cons go it was small with a few guests. I did see Marv Wolfman who is famous for writting Teen Titans and Crisis On Infinite Earths. I also met Frank Cammuso who is an editorial cartoonist for the big Syracuse newspaper, The Syracuse Post Standard. It was really nice being able to talk shop with him.

The 501st Legion, Garrison Excelsior was represented at the con. This is an organization of dedicated Star Wars fans who go all out with their costumes. They're really impressive. Especially, Chewbacca. The guy inside the suit was actually walking around on stilts. Also, at the con was this guy. I'm not sure who or what he was supposed to be but he did eat ten tacos for justice. I think he was supposed to be a hero but he looked filthy and homeless. After each taco he ate he cried, "For justice!" I stayed to watch him eat the last taco, which he did. He looked like he was going to barf.

Lost 3

Only two characters for you today. Here is Sun and Charlie. Notice how creepy Charlie appears. I did that intentially because of how he acted at the end of the season 2 finale. Something's up with him.

Lost 2

Well, tonight is the big night. I'm prepared to see no resolutions to any of the dangling plot threads on Lost's season finale. The only hopes I have is that it'll be a totally entertaining show. I'm also expecting a huge cliffhanger. I'd like to ask all of you to enjoy tonight's show and these sketches of Sawyer, John Locke, and Kate.

Lost 1

In anticipation of another season finale here's another tribute to an excellent show that I'm completely hooked on. Drawing these characters has been really fun. Stop back tomorrow to see who'll be posted here. Until then here's Sayid, Jack, and Hurley.

A Salute to Jack Bauer

Tonight is the season finale of 24. I've been enjoying 24 immensely this season. I'd say that this has been the best season, so far. Here is my tribute to this excellent show.

Track & Field Trojan

This is just a simple little sketch I did after being asked to create a large poster for my school's track team. Our mascot is a Trojan. So here's the little guy after fooling around with some Photoshop adjustments courtesy of tutorials by illustrator extraordinaire, Chris Wahl.

Belated Birthday Stuff

My birthday falls on the same day as the Mexican holiday, Cinco de Mayo. However, as I become older I'm realizing more and more that I'm not getting any younger. It's not been the easiest thing for me. I look back on my life and I think of how I would really like to relive my mid to late 20s in a quantum loop. Just hit repeat. I know. I'm going to use my own motto, "We all got problems." This birthday was a little different.

Davey-D with the 80s At 8:00 surprised me with a pic of Jack Bauer himself, Keifer Sutherland. Polish Rob got me a really cool CD of a Ukrainian punk band. Also my colleague and good friends Eric and Erika gave me a B&N gift card. Sweet!

Later on that evening I went out with Cathy and Anita to Varrick Street where we met up with Davey-D and Wildman Dave.

Special guest appearances were made by Shanne, another friend from work and my LOST buddy, Melissa.

Thanks to everyone who bought me Corona, Jim Beam, and Utica Club. Also, thank you Anita for the burrito. You guys made me feel like I was 26 again.

And a 'screw you' to the girl at the Varrick who cut in front of me at the bar and started with me. You BIATCH!
