My Friends Are Djs #35 - Gas Money

The idea for this came from a tweet made by a punk-geeky rocker named Kieran Strange (see tweet HERE ) and I thought and asked for permission to use an inspiration. Thank you! Really from the stories from others in the music biz... tour life can be a rough journey....its not all cocktail parties. I thought it would be hilarious too for one Rocket Twin to drag the other twin along with a rocket car hahaha. No super sophisticated idea for designing their rocket car other then what kind of vehicle would Rocket Twins drive hmm?

My Friends Are Djs #34 - Make-Up Prep

In brainstorming just draw it down session, and the fact I'm kind of going through this at the moment with the preparations with an upcoming club night and an artist alley stint...which make up to use etc, which gets kind of interesting for me if you know paint a sizable percentage of my body and face in face paint for both clubbing and normal cosplays at times. Yep its true cosplayers might have a diverse make up collection to match different cosplays, looks and colours.

My Friends Are Djs #33 - "A Simple Door"

Thinking about the current social mood right now...I decided to go the surreal and abstract/ experimental route with this panel. Often in life the seemingly "simple" answer is actually very complex and may not be right in front of your nose. This piece is a digital and traditional mixed medium experimental exercise. First the actual room was hand drawn and then painted...then the flowers were cropped and edited into the piece digitally on the computer. All these done..using only the system's built in paint and photo editing programs. Not the most sophisticated method but it does the job and I'm very happy to try out a very experimental approach. The picture was photographed by me at Buchart Gardens in Victoria, British Columbia.

My Friends Are Djs #32 - "Rainy Days"

Plucked out sketch from a brainstorming session for this turn.....this sketch was inspired by a particular massive, high profile EDM festival that drowned by rainstorms and turned in a mudfest of the hellkind...not mentioning which festival it was. Other then hehe better pack for rains in the rainy season....and it was fun experimenting with different tools Breezey replaces her "hair pins" with.

My Friends Are Djs #31 - Lucid

I admit I was so caught with things ont his end that I forgot to plan out properly this week's panel..so I looked through my pencil sketches for ideas....then I stumbled upon the sketch for Lucid - the hallucinatory fiend and the doom of Neptune. For a quick recap is a surreal "space demon" who is extremely lazy but emits a gas that causes very vivid and dangerous hallucinations. I was also thinking...after the wild Halloween parties, I wonder how many people are recovering from hangover and trippy moments?! I just went wild with the water colour washes to reflect Lucid's trippy nature...wished the scanning brought out the colours more.

PS I have never taken drugs and never plan to ever....I'm already very familiar with its effects.
