It's no secret that I adore the works of Michael Bay. I don't like them in an ironic way, I just flat out love them. Well all of them except for Pearl Harbor where I felt that his talents managed to turn a tragedy into an adventure which was somewhat offensive. HOWEVER! All other times he is bang on! No one makes films like his, and very few actually try.
I'm sure some would love to debate me on his talent but whenever I do discuss it it becomes a two sided exercise in circular argument and pointless quibbling.

"How can you like his movies?! They're just nothing but explosions, camera moves, flashy colors, boobs, and car chases!?"

"Because they're nothing but explosions, camera moves, flashy colors, boobs, and car chases."

So to honor the man in the only way I know how (and to fill some space on io9) I have created this little work of art that I titled "Deliver Us Some Awesome". And if you are here from io9, then welcome... here are your Wallpaper Sizes.

Sketchbook Stuff

I really need to buy a new scanner and remember to return the one I have to my friend. In any case, while I have it I'll keep scanning in sketches and drawings.

This first one was a quickie sketch I did of a building on 15th across from the Helix bridge while waiting for the wife. It's the sketch and then a little color test with it.

The next one is "Intervention" sketches. The woman and I have gotten hooked on this show and have what we call "ding ding" monday when they show two in a row. We call it "Ding Ding" because whenever they go back and examine the person's life history they always hit the Ding Ding moment. "Everything was fine, he was a beautiful kid, and then..." Divorce, abuse, drug abuse on the parent's part, mom dies... there is always something and we always have to shout out DING DING! as the alarm reminding us that it is rarely a mystery how they got to this point.

But there is a ton of real drama in it which leads to people with a lot of character on their faces so I've begun sketching them while I watch.

More Muckin with the iPhone

Still playing around with the iPhone Brushes app. Did this in the car while waiting as the wife ran in to do something at work. Happy enough with it.
