Portrait of a Friend.

MLE Mar 31st, 2011 07:52 PM

Looks like you got to know her fairly intimately.

Flyer doodle.

I like the rat's ear.

Sacks May 1st, 2011 12:33 AM

Just got some 3 dollar watercolors.

Are you able to make a living from your art? I feel that you should be able to.

Sacks May 2nd, 2011 03:36 PM

That is the goal but I'm still trying to figure out how to get started with that.

I sold one piece of art for 2 dollars to a kid in 9th grade. It was a doodle of a goth girl that he thought was really hot. I've done some stuff for local bands but they usually forget to pay me and I don't really want to make a big deal of it because my art is getting out there and we're friends. One time someone approached me to collaborate with some stuff on here but when we were working it out a bunch of stupid crap happened IRL, everything sort of fell apart on my end, and I'd spent so much time feeling sorry for myself on the couch watching Major Dad that I was too embarrassed to try to respond again. (NO MORE SECRETS, GUS. :tear)

I'm trying to figure out screen printing so I can print my own stupid stuff to sell online along with printing shirts for local bands and whatever. I've got a lot of ideas but I suck at getting things off the ground I guess.

Tadao May 2nd, 2011 04:09 PM

Have you considered working for a corporation?

Grislygus May 2nd, 2011 04:16 PM

Ha, I figured it was something like that. If I hadn't suddenly found out that I was fucking COMPLETELY INELIGIBLE for a Cal Grant and therefore had to pay my own goddamn tuition by working forty-fifty hours a week on top of school, I would have bugged the hell out of you... so it all worked out beautiful, in a fucked up way. Which is appropriate.

However, while the subject is brought up, there is no summer school at LCAD so I'm going ahead and starting a gag-a-day webcomic this summer. I have fifty of them written, who knows how many I'll have time to finish before next term ANYWAY, barring a financial disaster, some time in the next year I'm going to get the site up. If you have a personal project or something, and have a large number of pages COMPLETED by the time I get this online-artist colony thing up, I'd love to have you contribute a regular strip for it

Grislygus May 2nd, 2011 04:23 PM

Corporations suck. I managed to land several commissions for fifty dollars an hour for an international medical supplies company calleBLAHBALABHLABLABLABLAHngineering and marketing department loved it, I was told I could count on a "Full working relationship with them"... and suddenly the person I was dealing with bailed on the company without letting me know, and the new project director decided that the last fucking thing in the world they needed to be doing was paying some random 22 year old fifty dollars an hour to do hand drawn work

Grislygus May 2nd, 2011 04:25 PM

Bands suck worse, though. They're all lazy and don't want to spend any money, and don't seem to realize that bands are a dime a dozen, while people who can turn out professional looking work for them WHILE DEIGNING TO EVEN DO SO, because they enjoy the work, are rare :bitchfest

Sacks May 2nd, 2011 04:49 PM

When I got out of high school and I was trying to figure out what was up with life I got an offer to do illustration work with Halliburton. I had never taken an art course or anything so it was pretty intimidating. I wound up not taking the job because I wanted to do the whole college thing and if I'd gotten the boot from Halliburton I would have been sitting on my ass without any degrees or anything. I used to regret it but in the end I know I probably would have been unhappy there.

As for Gus' website. I've got a whole lot of shit I want to do and some weird strip ideas (Rob Saves His Dad, Future Ass Nigga Lutron, a reboot of my old webcomic, Dad 'n Me, and weird/creepy thing called Carl and Ross Fall In Love.) This summer I hope to near completion on some of the children's books I've been getting together.

I really just need to start getting out there, I guess.

Grislygus May 2nd, 2011 05:08 PM

Well, lemme see. I've done all the graphics for the site already... let me pm you the greeter image, see if you're interested.

Like I told you a while ago, the idea is this sort of online artists colony for artists who want to get their name out there by submitting weekly content, preferably a webcomic or something involving a story and GOOD art. Do good work in order to get people into the site, get people into the site in order to promote yourself and everyone. I haven't found very many fellow artists my age IRL that are all that interesting, and if they are they're fucking flakes and I don't think they'll ever meet a deadline. I've been pretty interested in the Nigga Ass Lulzatron thing since you first showed it... send me some samples of what the other ideas are, if you are interested

Sacks May 2nd, 2011 05:39 PM

I'll start working on some more strips and post them here as I get them done. School is out this week so it's no holds barred.

All Hail Duke May 2nd, 2011 09:12 PM

good stuff

Sacks May 2nd, 2011 09:56 PM



This is the most action this thread has ever seen.

replicant May 14th, 2011 08:33 PM

That makes me think of Hunter S. Thompson. :)

Sacks Jun 19th, 2011 04:34 AM

I haven't posted in a while so here is some random stuff that is already on flickr that I haven't posted.

Flyer for a show coming up:



Here is the board for a drinking game I made. I'll try to get a better picture before the board is destroyed.


10,000 Volt Ghost Jun 25th, 2011 06:29 PM

It looks like a drinking game version of Keys to the Kingdom. I think you art is badass and wish I remembered to check this thread more often. My work blocks all photos so it normally just shows up as blank pages.

Sacks Jun 26th, 2011 12:52 AM

Nice one. It's got some influences from Keys to the Kingdom and Talisman and then a bunch of shit I just made up to make it more simple/I didn't want to get into a lot of weird math shit because everyone is going to be drunk.
