A couple of days ago I posted this from my sketchbook. Something I started a while ago and wanted to come back to. Well, I did the other night. Still a work in progress, and my hands were kind of shakey trying to do perfect circles… But still, the inking is going pretty good i think.
Another page from my sketch book. Had completely forgotten about this one. I love it and want to finish it. Scanner is not working today, so have to make due with the phone cam.
Whats interesting, while trying to get a good picture of it, i tried various setting on my camera. one of those was negative:
Then i put it through the GIMP to try and define the lines better. Want to get a decent vector off of it, but didn’t try to hard. But, while I was messing around, i made it a bit too blue:
Pretty cool though huh? I am going to try and clean it up a little more and make it look like awesome robot blueprints.
When the final” Alien
Invasion (I mean) Assistance” comes, I will of course, hail and welcome with open arm our new Alien Overlord Oppressors (I mean Protectors, of course).
Be not affraid of alien or robot who decide to rule with iron fist or claw, for they only do it for humanity’s own good, and the best of intentions for Earth’s young species…
Tonight’s ‘Creative Output’ is something I’ve considered doing for some time now. Selling some stuff!
I spent last night and most of today creating designs for and opening a storefront at Cafe Press.
And other fine merch emblazoned with ‘Robot Meat’ original art.
Seriously though, I think this is a pretty big step for me. Not just to create something, and to send it out into the world, but to see if anyone will actually want to plunk down coinage for it. This year has been pretty interesting in a lot of different ways for me. One thing i decided early on in 2010 was that I would try to ramp up my creativity. I’ve done that in different ways, writing this blog on a fairly regular basis for one. And everything from my ‘Doodles of the Day’ and the more informal ‘Creative Output’ posts, pretty much the opposite of my old early 20’s approach, drawing and painting, then hiding it all in the closet.
The options available at the store are fairly limited right now, and i consider this attempt to be in Beta. As I progress and post more content I will expand the store as well. Maybe if I think there is enough interest in the store I’ll do something else with a POD site and have prints and things…. but thats getting the cart ahead of the llama, if you know what I mean!
Something I found under a pile of stuff that was actually recovered from the Infamous Coffee Spill of the other day. If i find anything else, I’ll be sure to post it.
