I used to draw stuff that wasn't MODOK.
YEAH I forgot too.
So, since this thing has BEARS in tha title...here's some bears.
I promise to have some strange new stuff next month. Scouts HONOR.
Thanks for stopping in......I appreciate it.
KEEPS ME BUSY, KEEPS ME HONEST.
In a recent flurry of new mental activity and exploration. MODOK recently discovered that there is a whole lobe in his vast (possibly limitless) mind devoted to music.
DOING ONE OF THESE A DAY IS COOKING MY BRAIN NOW.
Like how he came out. But kinda think the harmonica could jump out more....
oh well. Live and Learn.
CHECK OUT THE BLOG. Comment if you like "ITS THE HOME STRETCH!!"
Hope you dig it all.
So The waiting is over.
Last year Allan Norico http://3distic.blogspot.com/, and myself submitted a co-op piece to EYE CANDY FOR STRANGERS. An artistic volume of Girly drawings (NOT SAFE FOR THE KIDDIES) that was being put together by ALBERTO RUIZ at Brandstudio.

Long story short WE MADE THE CUT AND WHERE ADDED TO THE BOOK! Not only was the book well made but Great gobs of awesome art was collected making it a two part venture.
To get the four one one on your copy, and you will see some great work....without fail.
Man I can't wait to get my hands on them.
I will not cover up the truth...I watch to much goddam "Idiot Box" (thats the Telly for my friends in the U.K.). Furthermore I will not lie that I do like watching certain shows On the FOOD NETWORK.....
Porn for the overweight. But, with shows like Everyday Italian....no wonder I watch....
heres a link to the photo I reffed.
So lately, I have fancied myself more of a Painter/ Illustrator/ Caricaturist. However, I lately question where this is all going for me. Just, trying to find something different I guess.
But, I figured that there hasn't been any bears here in a while so, Here is a classic.
So,..... my buddy NELSON DIAZ http://www.tikirox.blogspot.com is doing an exercise I love. The Idea is that you draw a random shape or set of lines and then see how many things you can imagine out of that base shape. He's been doing this with a group of friends I think. You can see them over at CHOPSHOPSHAPES.BLOGSPOT.COM if you wish.
Dateline last week:
NELSON AND I HAD A DRINK LAST WEEK AND HE LET ME WORK FROM THE MOST RECENT SHAPE...seen here in the fleshy colored faces of these guys. I did a few others but this one stood out for me. Just fun. AND THEN A BIG FIGHT BROKE OUT IN THE BAR!....WHAT AN AWESOME CITY!.
I am not a member of this group but, the exercises are indeed beneficial and I think all artists should do them from time to time.....KEEP THINKING.
Well its March now.
MODOK MADNESS IS IN FULL SWING, I AM DOODLING AWAY and working hard at the office. DOING CARICATURES, making characters and flexing my Photoshop muscle. I have noted a serious drop in bear content in this forum which I will correct soon. Beyond that, I wanted to share A funny little image with you.
The MASTERFUL CHRIS WAHL, from Australia. Dashed out a caricature of yours truly, as a reply to my drawing him, earlier last month. Its a great image that looks just like my awful mug.
Go have a peek at it here.
that photo is about a year old. But, Still Awesome.....
Check out chris's blog with the link at the bottom also.
And thank you all for stopping in.
