Bizarre Adventure


Way back in high school, probably 2006, a guy I’d met at the local anime store let me borrow a copy of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure (among other box sets, he was very eager to date, and I do suppose that is the proverbial mating call of nerds), before it was licensed here in America, and I think I watched the whole thing in one sitting. I remember being initially confused, as I believe the story goes that the first few episodes were restored/remastered from the original run, while the rest looked pre-remaster, so at first my feeble pubescent mind was confused about the swap in quality, but I didn’t care, it was awesome. The only problem was that I knew practically nobody else who had even heard of this series, and combined with its strange name, I felt pretty silly asking everyone I knew into anime for the next few years if they had ever heard of it, to no avail.

Fast forward to now, and it’s finally here, and it’s a hit. Thank God.

So here’s my fan take inspired by the above, now that everyone knows what I’m talking about and I can rest assured I wasn’t having an unbelievably well choreographed fever dream.


P.S. I know I don’t often make new Home posts, but I do often update my comics and illustrations pages

Starting 2016 Learning Something New


Began practicing more work in digital to familiarize myself more with a strictly digital way of working, and I’ve been meaning to do some Game Grumps fan art, so I used Danny (also of Ninja Sex Party) as my muse. I used both Adobe Photoshop CS4 and Painter 2015. The last Painter program I used, 11, crashed, oh, a numbing 20 minutes on the clock, and I’m happy to say this version is greatly improved. I can’t wait to begin more digital work, even as I am trying to improve my inking skills for the next batch of publishers I want to submit to. Improvement, 2016, onwards!
