Sometimes I complain because I’m sad.

Ever feel like you hate too much and don’t love enough and somehow you wonder why you’re miserable most of the time?
Yeeaahhh…

MMORPG Blues {2013}This was the comic I did for issue #99 ImagineFX. If you aren’t aware of it yet, I’ve been making comics for a tiny feature on ImagineFX for the past few issues now. It’s pretty cool. Last month’s theme was about game art, so I did something about MMO’s.But the point is, it’s kinda cool to have HatBoy in a magazine. Haha!Also, I’m mostly posting this because I haven’t posted in a while mostly because I’ve been too busy to make anything for this blog. So yeah, sorry about that. School’s really kicking my ass right now. I’ve been needing health potions like there’s no tomorrow, because this boss battle of a thesis is throwing me punches that I can’t seem to dodge. Anyway, back to work.
You should click to embiggen. This comic wasn’t designed to be on Tumblr. Or you could buy the magazine? Haha!

HatBoy: Moist Money {2013}
 
Disclaimer: This did not really happen. I don’t buy ice cream.
 
I thought this up during the summer, but I got too busy to make it due to internship obligations and general laziness. Anyway, it’s monsoon season now here so it’s a bit late for this to be relevant here. But I’m told it’s still summer in the US? Is this right?
Well hopefully this is relatable somewhere haha!

I like to keep all my bejeezus contained in one place.

Based on a stupid conversation I had with my brothers about language. Haha! Anyway, quickly drawn comics for Free Comic Book Day! Hooray!
Ok. Bye.Edit: Apparently, it’s spelled bejesus. And is an Irish expression of surprise. Ok.

HatBoy: AnonyGhost
Hey peeps. One of the things keeping me busy is that I recently got commissioned to make silly comics for an international publication. I’m pretty excited about it, actually. Anyway, this is one of the strips they rejected. They made the right decision.
Blegh. But AnonyGhost will soon go through a make-over as I want a better character design for this dude. I’ve always wanted a ghost character so I don’t just want to make this guy a one-strip thing.

{12 - 20 - 2012}I made this comic last year. I forgot to upload it. I thought I’d post it now since I don’t have anything new to post at the moment. Still pretty busy to make anything new really. School is still being a needy little bugger.
Also, I think my home has developed a real ant problem.

Rise and Fall (2012)
It’s The Dark Knight Rises Week! So I thought I might as well post this and because I’ve nothing worth posting except old files. I made this for a Dark Knight shirt competition a while back. If the glow looks weird, it’s because of the halftone. I had to make it silk-screen friendly. Aaawww yissss! Art school know-how!
Anyway, you can click it to embiggen, which I recommend. It’s a 1440x900 png, so you can download it and use it as your desktop wallpaper if you want. Like me. So we can be desktop buddies this week. Can you think of anything cooler?
Yes. Yes you could. But I’ll still be stoked for Batman. FAVORITE SUPER-HERO CHARACTER EVER! Even though I always root for The Joker, because my love for him shines like his glistening pearly-white smile.
We gon see le movie this weekend hopefully. WOOT!

You’re probably procrastinating right now as well…

I’m like the Incredible Hulk. But instead of bulging into a giant, green anger-beast, I melt down into a blob of depression. Which probably feels worse than being an anger monster and the spell probably feels longer and more unbearable. And instead of being feared, most people would probably just be annoyed with me.
GUUUUUUHHHHHH!!! #vaughnisabuzzkill
Ok that’s enough. I have to study for my engineering science quiz tomorrow now. blegh…

Space Cube and Tomato: Sammich

I’ve been feeling mighty depressed and annoyingly emotional recently. And I thought I might as well just scream out in agony through comics. If that’s alright with you guys…

During my animation class.
It was a 6 hour class filled with confusion and frustration.
So last week was the first week of my 4th year in art college. Also, animation class began. It’s too early to tell whether it sucks or not, but I barely enjoyed my first day. I was pretty annoyed over the fact that the class apparently isn’t going to teach traditional hand-drawn animation or any other technique of animation except 3D animation, like Pixar stuff but on shit computers and on a shit freeware software because the college has no money for industry standard software. I was more so annoyed of the fact that the professor said that the course will be just about 3D animation because presently the animation industry is in great demand for 3D artists. That may be true, but the college is supposed to teach us the arts not try and get us a job. 
Because going to college isn’t really something you go through just to get a job. Or at least it shouldn’t be anyway. Although yes, companies do tend to hire those with degrees, but going to college used to be because people had a thirst for knowledge. You go to college because you have passion for a certain field. And that’s become the main reason why I even bother with staying in school, because I’m severely passionate about art and I want to learn more about it.
Anyway recently, I’ve grown very interested in animation and I wish to pursue it a bit and hopefully make an animated short in the near future. I wanted hand-drawn animation, if it was good enough for a Mr. Walt Disney then it should be good enough for me. But the college has decided it wasn’t worth teaching anymore.
I like 3D animation, sure. But I would rather make hand-drawn animation as I find that its charm is more beautiful and I would love to study it just because I want to. Hand-drawn animation is not dead and it’s still massively beautiful and I think it should be taught at supposedly the premier art school in the country. It’s an art form and a technique. There are many ways to tell stories now. We have the option to choose which form or medium would best suit a story, aesthetically. And just because 3D animation is what’s “in” at the moment, doesn’t mean it will be the only answer for animated storytelling.

Also, Blender sucks massively. Maya forever!
Anyway, this post has gone too long. So, hi and goodbye for now my lovelies.
