Congratulations Loocem! You won the request contest. It was fun trying to visualize your request, especially since I initially thought the sheriff was supposed to be a cowboy. Now he’s a shark.

Art has historically been inspired by intense feelings. Love, passion, beauty, and pain. I want to follow in these great footsteps.
That’s why I drew a (self-inspired) nerd, flipping his desk over because he lost a fictional computer game.

Christian Friend: “Oh cool what are you drawi-“

Christian Friend: “Do you need me to pray for you?” 

Me: “Hahahaha. I’m fiiiiiiiiiine. On a completely unrelated sidenote, never show these to a psychiatrist.”

Request contest 2 edit

Instead of sending your requests as asks, like or reblog this post. Each note counts as an entry into the random selection. The deadline is still March 27. Once you’re picked, I’ll ask you what it is you’d like me to draw.

Old Stuff Tom Did Not Actually Too Long Ago

About four years ago I thought it would be cool to show my professors that I was a really deep and artistic person so I glued foam-core together and played with legos on camera.

I’m a little late to the fan-art bandwagon for this show, but Breaking Bad is right up there with the Sopranos in terms of how realistically it handled it’s original subject matter and the level of quality on literally everything… music, camerawork, writing, acting…everything. Glad it ended and didn’t get stretched into something boring. Watch it. No questions. Just do it. Already seen it? Watch it again.

REQUEST CONTEST WINNER! Congratulations Zollgax!!!! Your entry was randomly selected to be drawn! Sorry it took a while. This was very fun to draw when I finally got around to it. I’m definitely putting it in my portfolio. Hope you like it, and thanks again for following. 

To everybody else that entered, thanks, and there will be another contest in the future….

REQUEST CONTEST!!!

Hi followers. I want to thank you, or more specifically, a lucky person among you, for following. I wish I could do requests for everyone, but I have work to do and I don’t want to promise anything I can’t follow through with.

Send me an ask with something you’d like to see me draw. The winner will be chosen randomly and I’ll draw it and maybe color it depending on how complicated it is. The deadline is tonight at 12AM. Original character, fictional character someone else made, a dinosaur, a puppy, a demon…so many options….

Here’s a couple of editorial pieces that originally started separately but then I totally on purpose *cough* made them have almost the exact same composition because before the project even started *cough* I realized they both were about man-made things and their flaws. I think I’m getting sick…
