I & D is Dead

Due to some copy write issues with the original creator of I & D I can no longer display the comics on this site or my other blog. Hopefully I'll have another comic to replace it soon. Any ideas are welcome as always!

Just Married

So I've been gone for a while. Hopefully someone noticed! That's because I recently got married and also went on my honeymoon and it was all a blast. I can't be more excited to be married to such a wonderful person. Glad to be back though and will have some new stuff up soon.

Painting Practice

Haven't painted in a while so decided to do a digital one to practice. Not the same as the real thing but thought I'd give it a shot.

August 31, 2010 - Painting the closet

The house we moved into is pretty old so Angela and I have been trying desperately to clean and re-design our new house to match our own sensibilities but with work and wedding planning its been pretty difficult.

Bachelor Party

I know I haven't posted one of these in a while. Been tough lately to stay inspired and not get too lazy. This comic is not a very current event in my life but definitely thought this moment from my bachelor party was one of the more memorable ones that needed to get told. It may not translate well to everyone and you may have had to be there to find this funny but out of all the partying we did, this was one of the things that happened that made the trip well worth it.

New home for Ira & Drac

I'm gonna be posting all the new Ira & Drac comics at my old blog so that the other artist sharing the site don't have to deal with the offensive nature of the comic and be associate themselves with its vulgarity. If you are interested in the site and the comic there is now a link in the header bar specifically for the comic. Thanks again for reading!

Arbitrary Sunday

This past Sunday I was hanging out with Angela and her family cause her younger sister, Crystal, came home from the army on leave. The house was packed with women, the exception being her grandpa and myself. I was super bored, as usual, since her grandparents watch spanish soap operas on the living room TV, where I play video games, when ever they come over. To pass the time by, I spent the afternoon making stickers out of small drawings I create on illustration board. Once Angela's 9 year old sister and her nieces figured out what I was doing they naturally wanted to make their own. While all this is happening I caught wind of a conversation Angela, her mom and grandma were having about buying bras at Nordstrom. Not sure what happened next but I hear the phrase yelled out,
"Grandma...I can see your nipple!"
I wasn't really sure what that sentence was pertaining to but I really do wish there were more males to hang out within her family. Sounds really gay out of context but in context I'm sure it makes much more sense.

Process Comic

Just a filler post to show those of you that are interested what my process is like when I make a comic

No Ideas

I think I'm getting too preachy on this thing. I know I've just started doing these things again but its really hard to think of stuff to draw comics about. My life is pretty uneventful for the most part. I just go to work and go home. Aside from the wedding Angela and I have been planning, not much really goes on. I really need to find a writer for another comic or something cause this is getting stale really quick. I'm sure for the most part, that these comics are painful to read. Thanks for coming back to read, by the way, if you don't feel an obligation to me in any way (friend, family, fiancee) to give me some readership. Wish I could say doing these is therapeutic in some way, since it's about my life, but for the most part, for me, its an exercise in self deprecation. Which in some way can be therapeutic, I guess, but I guess that wasn't the point of it. Maybe its just about being self indulgent...not sure. Who knows...Great now this feels like a really sappy facebook post and feel crappy for writing it. ughhhh.

Simon gets a "D" on her test

I know I'm really aging my self by writing this but I'm not really sure if it's this current generation of kids or if I just really cared way more than some people about the way I performed in school. It seems to me that kids now-a-days just really don't care what their grades say about them or what the importance that lies in a good education. I can understand if your were still in high school and didn't really care much for that shitty dance PE elective or something but when you're going to a school that you want to go to and taking classes that you want to take that you would be just a little bummed out that you bombed on your first test. Well, I guess thats just my rant for today. I think I'm turning into a old curmudgeon.

Recent Sketches

Hey Everyone... So it's been forever since my last post. Here are some recent sketches I really like, that would possibly turn into some paintings... enjoy.

Suit Shopping For the Groomsmen

So on Sunday I went shopping with Angela, her mom and her sisters to look for some suits for my groomsmen. It was sort of an odd experience since they made me try the suits on even though I wasn't gonna be the one wearing it. To try on the suits, I had to wear one of those fake dress shirts with no sleeves or backing and baggy dress pants which I'm no longer used to since I've been doing the whole skinny jeans thing for a while now. What also made the situation awkward was that I kept having to be remeasured. Probably because of my tiny man's frame that's more akin to a chubby 7th grader than that of a 28 year old man.

The tailor/salesman didn't really make a pass at me or anything like that (I just though it would make the comic a little funnier) but he was definitely a weird character. He was a little hyper and had overtly spikey hair and reminded me a little of a lanky sonic the hedgehog. I wonder if Angela's dress fitting was anything like this.
