The OTHER dancers

Obviously, Galaxgals has to be filled with other exotic alien dancers. Of course they are all the female of their race, and oddly, they all have breasts. Goes to show that human men aren't the only one obsessed. I only did twelve cards for this set so I couldn't really feature nearly the amount of crazy races I came up with. So I will show you some of what I used.
Hope you guys are enjoying the characters so far.

Big Lou

Today we get a peek at Big Lou, the very greedy and awful manager of this quadrant's Galaxgals. He's pretty stereotypical as far as seedy club manager's go. Oddly, he's gay, and has a secret guilty earth pleasure. Anytime one of the space thugs journeys to our planet in search of a female to populate the Galaxgals establishments, he has them bring back; KITTENS.
He thinks they are a cute fuzzy snack.

Georgia Star

Here we have the earthling and main character of my Galaxgals Eradication contribution. She doesn't begin the story looking like this. She actually starts pretty normal. A farm girl from the midwest whose life is about to change completely as she begins an out of this world adventure.
Galaxgals Eradication from 5finity productions releases on June 30.

Galaxgals Eradication

Sketch card sets can be pretty time consuming and even monotonous from time to time. Some of the toughest sets for me can be those featuring characters I've NEVER heard of. Imagine how tough it is to draw fifty cards based on a character with almost zero internet identity and even less reference. It makes you want to cry.
When a set comes along with just a title and the freedom to draw almost anything you want, as long as it stays within the theme, then it feels like a breath of fresh creative air.
But even then, I find myself lacking discipline and direction. I even run into artists block.
With my next two sets I found a way to be original and maintain creative interest.
Let story cards begin.
I wanted to keep the public interested in not only my contributions but the sets themselves as well. So what I have done, is create my cards with their own set of characters and a story that spans each card. I guess it's kind of hard to explain, but I'll try.
With 5finity's upcoming release Galaxgals Eradication (and Badaxe studios Dungeon Dolls) I'll have a new story created entirely for my run of sketch cards. Starting now, I'll be posting the characters designs and info on them here on my blog.
Once those have been posted I'll begin to show each individual sketch card in order along with a piece of the story.
I'll do this until all cards and story pieces have been revealed.
I think it's a neat idea, and it gives sketch card collectors a little bonus to look forward to!
Feel free to let me know your thoughts and enjoy the ride.

and now 5finity and Locoduck Studios present.....

The idea for this set was pretty wide open and simple. Space Aliens versus hot girls. Leaves a lot of room to play right?
I decided that Galaxgals would be a galactic underground and illegal strip club featuring exotic nude dancers of species from all over the cosmos. Run by alien mob boss Gotti Omega, it would be the biggest club ever. Gotti owns several clubs throughout space and each one is run by a manager from the Sleazoid quadrant. Each Sleazoid has a handful of Gotti's space thugs and uses them to scour the various universes looking for the hottest of females to bring (by force and kidnapping mainly) and perform at the clubs.

Here are the designs for Gotti Omega and one of his Space Thug body guards. Gotti is a total chauvinist and extremely ill tempered. Very picky and very crass. The Space Thugs are usually your typical brainless Goons good for one thing and one thing only, following orders.
Okay, that's all for now! Tune in tomorrow for more....

WWE Caricatures

I've had my ups and downs with being a WWE fan. In high school I was a rabid obsessed beast. I watched every pay-per view, bought every magazine and toy, and went to every event that came to town. I even won an art design competition with the WWE magazine. My favorites bounced back and forth between, The Ultimate Warrior, Rowdy Roddy Piper, Mr. Perfect, and Bret The Hitman Hart!
 Those who know me know that for a while I got to be a pretty good friend of The Hitman. Getting to hang with him backstage, travel with he and his wife at the time, and even chatting on the phone and grabbing dinner with him. After the WWE screwed him, I became disinterested with most of what was out there. And when Bret suffered a stroke, I walked away from the show all together.
 Eventually I came back around. Watching some of it here and there. But it wasn't until Bret came back, that I did too. Now once again I find myself a pretty big fan. I'm not as rabid as I once was. I don't order every show, or buy all the toys. And I don't wait around trying to get autographs anymore. Although, meeting the MIZ would be awesome!
Needless to say, wrestlers are an easy go to when I am at work and need to draw someone for attention. Usually they are always recognized by quite a few, and I enjoy drawing them. I even take them to an event if I go to one. The John Cena and Randy Orton pics even got some screen time on an episode of RAW! Not pictured here are a few that some wrestlers have even signed for me out of appreciation.
I don't keep them. I actually give them away, but I am very selective to who. If I come across a fan who seems to be as rabid as I was, or a young fan who enjoys the WWE, I have no problem adding to their enjoyment!
On a side note, as cool as it was to hang with Bret back in the day, I can't even get him to retweet or respond to ANY of my tweets. Ugh, well I guess I got lost in the shuffle of a billion fans. But I won't give up on trying. I follow my past favorite Bret The Hitman Hart ( @brethart ) and my current day favorite The Miz (@mikethemiz )
You can follow almost ANY wrestler on Twitter nowadays. It's a good thing past me didn't have that ability. I'd have never left the house!

A Patch with a Cause

So the good news is, I now have internet and cable in the home again. It was like a Christmas morning to get my own quick connection. For the foreseeable future there will be regular updates and even a step back into Ustream broadcasts.

Lots to blog about, but for now something really important. I was contacted and asked if I would allow the use of the artwork I did of pink astromech droid R2KT to be incorporated into a patch that would be sold with every dime going to charity. Here is more info as taken from

"In response to the devastation suffered in Missouri and Alabama recently, R2-KT is offering a limited run of "Fan Club" patches to raise money for the Red Cross. Each patch is $10 and all proceeds go to benefit the Red Cross. Order as many as you like by sending a paypal payment to "

These guys are a class act and deserve the support. They are down to about 40 patches. Lets help them sell them all!
