Decided to draw my favorite new Ghostbuster! I’ve always adored Kate McKinnon and thought she did a great job with Jillian Holtzmann.
Absolutely adored Judy Hopps, so I had to draw her! The left was my first go and while it’s all sass, I wanted some optimistic Judy, so I went again for another more happier picture.
Drew my favorite part of Batman V Superman!
Drew Joy from Inside Out.
I loved the movie, character, and this drawing. Her design is so great and I tried to capture as much of it as I could.

Have you all seen Mad Max yet? My goodness, if the answer is no, you need to remedy that this weekend. From its adrenaline pumping soundtrack to its awe-inspiring visuals to Charlize Theron’s Imperator Furiosa, you need to get on what is shaping up to be one of the best movies of the year. I loved it so much that I drew two of the main characters, Max and Nux as they first know each other toward the beginning of the film. Bloodbrothers. You’ll get the reference.
I’m still struggling with finding and identity for my style. I’m generally proud of this one, but I found myself wandering and not really knowing what the hell I was doing when I was drawing this one.
Looking forward to the next one. My binging of Rick and Morty has me jonesing to do some fan art, but I’ve got another big project in my mind and I’m highly considering pursuing that instead.
Remember to follow on Twitter for hilarious updates.
Also included is a speed drawing below, enjoy!
Hi everyone! This is a podcast I did with my friends. It’s a geek oriented podcast where we talk about what things we’re excited about when it comes to comics, books, movies, and television. It’s our inaugural podcast and we’re very excited to interact with our viewers. So if you have time, give it a chance and hopefully we’ll be on itunes soon so you can carry us wherever we go!
Feel free to drop comments in either the Youtube or this comment section. Thanks so much everyone!
Merry Christmas everyone! I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful Christmas.
A friend recommended I check out Gone Girl. He had read the book and watched the movie and was very pleased with both. I had only heard about this movie, saw it in some previews like Entertainment Weekly (but still didn’t read the articles), David Fincher and saw that it had Ben Affleck in it. If I’m being honest, I didn’t really care for what Ben Affleck was doing before he would debut as the Bat in 2016.
And that’s another case of my dumb ignorance.
Gone Girl, as supported by the hype and reviews, was an incredible movie. It was stylish, beautifully and magnetically acted, and the story was so damn entertaining. Here’s a relatively spoiler free review.
If you are uninitiated with the premise, please watch the movie first before reading this review. Going into it dry is honestly the best way to go about it. This review will be try to be spoiler free, but I’ll probably bring things up that might stay with you as you watch the movie. Reading this will probably be raising your suspicions when you finally decide to watch it.

Normally the kind of movies I have time for/show interest in aren’t the most critically acclaimed or nor do they have deep resonating messages. I used to eat that kind of stuff up. If there was anything Wes Anderson or coming of agey, I would find it and seek to be taken by its independent film tropes. These days, I go hard after things like X-Men, Godzilla or Edge of Tomorrow. My taste in movies have definitely changed and I’m less and less inclined to check out movies with smaller releases and aren’t big budget action movies. Now that’s not saying that I went to go check out thew newest Transformer movie, but I’ve found a really nice place in genre that combines good writing and action. I’ve been thirsting for a movie that perfectly catches this medium.
Snowpiercer was a movie that wasn’t wide released, nor did it perform very well at the box office in the US (this is a South Korean movie, despite most of it being in English, which did really well there, but not so well in the US). However after watching it, I’ve found that it is one of those movies that perfectly blends style, intriguing characters, story, and action. Snowpiercer might be one of my favorite movies of 2014.

It’s been a while, but I talked about several Chinese movies any film lover should see. Someone who had the honor of holding two films on that list was director and actor Stephen Chow. Gifted in slapstick, over the top, silly dialogue and action, Chow has cemented himself as a current leader in both quality comedy and a Chinese celebrity. His most recent movie, released in 2013 in China, Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons is the highest grossest Chinese language movie ever. So I got my hands on the movie and had to see it myself, not really sure how I would feel about it after loving Kung Fu Hustle and Shaolin Soccer so much. Here’s a quick summary of the premise.
Xuan Zang (Zhang Wen) is an unorthodox demon hunter. Instead of pummeling them into submission, he uses a pacifist approach through nursery rhymes to appeal to their inner good. But when he gets in over his head, the aggressive demon hunter Miss Duan (Qi Shu) is forced to save his life over and over again. Together they foil each other out as they journey to the west, conquering demons (get it?). Along the way, slapstick, seduction, and heartbreak occur on the road as they learn more about each other then either of them really wanted.
It’s no surprise that I’m a huge DC fanatic, and I enjoy soaking up just about any and all things DC related, whether they be their comics, video games, movies, and television shows. I have dedicated today’s post to their much beloved animated series that they’ve been pumping out since 1992 (maybe even earlier, I’m note entirely sure). They continue to produce quality television shows and animated movies to this day, although some for the wrong [but necessary] reasons. My recent finishing of the television series Young Justice has prompted me to write this post and kind of cover all the great things about DC’s [or I guess Warner Bros.] animated divisions. It’s very clear that a lot of these great shows and movies were created by comic book lovers who enjoy introducing legendary and fantastic characters in the DC universe as well as dropping hints, easter eggs, and callbacks to those who are engaged and already familiar with the DC Universe.
Here’s a breakdown of some of the recent and personally significant series and movies I’ve had the pleasure of viewing.
Edge of Tomorrow may be one of my favorite surprise good movies I’ve had the pleasure of seeing this year. Edge of Tomorrow has comedy, action, a thought provoking story, incredible visuals, and a damn charming Tom Cruise. Based on the novel, All You Need is Kill, the story follows military propaganda specialist Cage (Cruise). When Cage resists a direct order being of joining the battle, he’s put on the front line where he dies almost instantly. But something happens to Cage where he wakes up after death only to relive the same battle over and over again. With the help of the army’s most badass marine, Rita (Emily Blunt), Cage uses this ability to his advantage to turn the tide of the war. Basically this movie is Groundhog Day with space marines and Tom Cruise.

X-Men: Days of Future Past opened this last weekend, outdoing in my opinion every X-Men in sheer awesomeness [a very technical term]. For good reason too. Everything in Days of Future Past was enjoyable and the movie had it all. There was an engaging story with very real themes. There were incredible and unforgettable actions sequences. And it did something that very few franchises have done, which is successfully link a previous franchise with its reboot without feeling overly convoluted.
So we’re gonna get down to the meat here and discuss a lot of the awesome [and a few of the not as awesome] things with X-Men Days of Future Past.

Boy has it been an incredible past couple of weeks for DC Comics in the mainstream. Of course, there are always news when it comes to what’s new in the comic book world, but for everyone else, television and movies are often the only outlets to some of the comic book properties. 2014-2015 television shows are being picked up and their initial trailers are being released and movie news for 2016 and beyond. Among these, it appeared that NBC, CW, Fox, and Warner Bros got together and said, “the month of May is when we’re gonna release all the awesome DC-related news”. Of course they didn’t actually do that, but damn it, it sure looked that way. In today’s post, we’re gonna take a look at all the related news that was released that are DC Comics related.
Benedict Cumberbatch has been all the rage this year. Before then he had modest career, never really catching my eye [but maybe my eye isn’t as tasteful as others], starring in some major movies as only a minor character. But back in 2010, he starred in Sherlock, the contemporary take on Sherlock Holmes set in modern London. The series got a cult following relatively quickly and I like to believe [after recently catching up on Sherlock] it helped him get the role of Khan in Star Trek Into Darkness. In this post, I confess my man crush to the incredible Benedict Cumberbatch. To do this, I go over how I nerdgasmed with his portrayal of Khan, got into Sherlock, and how I’ve permantly joined the constantly expanding club known as “The Cumberbitches”.
