Comic Book Sound Effect Dictionary!

[Note: Check This $#!% Out was originally a seperate blog but is now a feature of patokon blog]

If you love comics, or merely find them curious, you're sure to be somewhat fascinated with one of the unique features of sequential art - sound effects. The curious thing is that the earliest SFX were based on words that were already based on sounds that the words' meanings represented. RING sounds like something ringing just as GONG sounds like you just banged a gong. Get your SFX fix by following @ComicBookSndFX for tweets of entries from the Comic Book Sound Effect Dictionary (coming soon) or you can follow the English - Japanese version @AmeComiSFX that was previously only available at Tokyo's Comiket.
Just remember...KRA-KOW!! is more than a place in Poland.

Face Your Demons Poster

I've retouched an old piece for Illustration Friday not realizing Reflect was last week's theme. Oh well.
On reflecting:
I spent way too much time reflecting and not enough time doing when I was much younger, but I have to admit that the experience hasn't been a total loss.
Experience is still experience even if it's in your head and I'm a lot more prepared to be an active artist, husband, and dad than I ever was before.
If you're going to spend a lot of time being haunted by your demons, might as well get chummy with them. Running away from them doesn't do you or those around you any favors.
And who knows... they might be AWESOME!

Drawn for Illustration Friday. Finally filled another page in my larger moleskine sketchbook.
Was so busy doing this piece, I almost forgot to upload Tomoko's artwork to the Hexenringe webcomic.

DSC Danny Trejo, Coolest Badass Ever

Watching Dead in Tombstone starring Danny Trejo, I was inspired to focus on this drawing more than the movie. Still, I'm glad Señor Trejo gets to be the star these days.
