So my friends and comicbook partners, Johnny Zito and Tony Trov, had the rights to their series "Black Cherry Bombshells" revert back to them today and it got ol' Rahzzah Murdock reminiscinating.

A few years ago, my best friends and I were making a zombie movie (as so many folks are wont to do these days) and I met two guys (on Myspace of all places) who were making a zombie comic for DC's web imprint, Zuda.

It was also around this time that I got my very first computer that was all my own, a Wacom tablet, and a wild hair up my ass to take a go at digital art.  

So, long story not quite so long, my first experiments in digital art were little crummy fan arts for my new friend's web series.

And not long after that we started our own book, Moon Girl.

One thing I have been very very lucky in life to have, is that I've had the great fortune to make things I give a shit about with people that I love. Sometimes it was movies, sometimes it was music, and for the last few years it's been comics (admittedly I haven't turned out a whole LOT of comics in that time..but they're being worked on, alright? just settle down)

I love my friends Zito and Trov. I get to tell stories with them. I got to make new friends thru them. I live with those friends in a nice town, in a nice house, on the same block with a nice coffee house that sells bottomless cups of iced coffee in the summertime and the best hot chocolate in the winter and they don't give a care how long you sit there, drinking your coffee and talking about Batman with Johnny Zito. I became a better illustrator telling our story and I'm getting better telling this new one we're working on: Slumberland.

And the point of all this is: None of this would have happened if not for Black Cherry Bombshells....and that's pretty cool, for me, to think upon.

My biggest hope for you creative types out there is you get to have some opportunities in your lives to do what you love with people that you love who also love the thing as much as you love the thing.

Listen up campers!

Christmas is right around the corner, and since I have no idea how to live a life with freetime, I'm taking on some commissions.

Get something for a loved one this Holiday season..or even just a liked one..hell, treat yo self!

Private message me all sexy-like and we'll talk.

Better hurry though though cause I'm developing a cough that could take a turn for the worse and you'll want to have an original work that will skyrocket in value after my demise.

Sweet! do you uses your layers or just slop the paint on and correct as you go? That's the problem with speed painting, I can never tell what they are doing. lol

I do the drawing in greyscale, then do the colouring on a separate layer set to either "overlay" or "colour" (sometimes "soft light or "multiply" too....whatever is working best for the situation)

cause I was doing that thing where I'd stand behind you and whichever way you turned, I'd step in the opposite direction.

It was pretty hilarious, but it went on for far too long.

So I'm glad you finally found me.

Now THAT... Is a skill.

You know how hard that is to effectively pull of?

I'm impressed.
