YOUnique Magazine Illustration

My friend Jamie Rockwell works for YOUnique Magazine doing page layout, design, and illustrations every now and then. An article fell into his lap that was meant to be accompanied by one of my drawings. This article was about comic books and thier effect on popular culture. Jamie asked me to hook him up and less than 24 hours later I sent him my generic superhero. The issue with my illustration should be published in a month or so. I'll post the article when I get it.

No Country For Old Men

What do you fear? I could never really grasp why people were afraid of Freddy, Jason, or Michael Meyers. They were too far fetched. These guys would have all kinds of rediculous punishment inflicted upon them and they would just keep coming and coming in sequel after sequel. Javier Bardem in "No Country For Old Men" scared the living shit out of me. He was a force of nature. When hurt, he would collect himself in retreat, and then come back. He never stops. Jesus, that's a frightening concept.

Tom Waits

I've never been a huge fan of Tom Waits, but two years ago my roommate would play his vinyls every day. After a while I really started to appreciate his disjointed and chaotic music. I always felt that Tom Waits' music was like a giant puzzle that you spend weeks putting together, but there is always a piece missing.

This is one of my artist friends. His name is Mike Graessle and he is extremely talented. He does caricature illustrations for card decks. If you've ever been to a convenience store or a Hallmark, you have probably stumbled upon some of his NFL themed card decks. Very talented guy, hopefully I'll be posting one of his caricatures of your's truly in a week or so!
