"And That's how little Sally taught the Lord Thorborlex, the blood-soaked Despot, the true meaning of Christmas..."
We had this little Christmas Exchange over at the . It's a great idea I'd love to make a yearly tradition. My exchange was with Stephen Downer Who sent me this wonderful piece:

Thanks Steve and Happy New Year everyone!

I promise plenty of exciting art for the future year!

So here's the killinest school around, St. Hell's School of Smackdown. Starring Nun Yerbizness ( Created by Kristen McCabe ), Chop-Louie ( Created by Dave Johnson ) and the Chef O' Death... by me! Josh first Fist-A-Cuffs entry, but hopefully not the last. It's a blast to see how people react to your characters and who would win in a fight. We did pretty well considering the competition.

The Chef is a mix of Mad Max and Iron Chef... In a Post-Apocalyptical world where only the strongest dish survives.

The Tin Woodsman from Oz is a dark and weird character. I haven't read the books since I was young, so I've forgotten the fact that he has in fact the darkest kids book character origin I've ever known.

"There was one of the Munchkin girls who was so beautiful that I soon grew to love her with all my heart. She, on her part, promised to marry me as soon as I could earn enough money to build a better house for her; so I set to work harder than ever. But the girl lived with an old woman who did not want her to marry anyone, for she was so lazy she wished the girl to remain with her and do the cooking and the housework. So the old woman went to the Wicked Witch of the East, and promised her two sheep and a cow if she would prevent the marriage. Thereupon the Wicked Witch enchanted my axe, and when I was chopping away at my best one day, for I was anxious to get the new house and my wife as soon as possible, the axe slipped all at once and cut off my left leg.
"This at first seemed a great misfortune, for I knew a one-legged man could not do very well as a wood-chopper. So I went to a tinsmith and had him make me a new leg out of tin. The leg worked very well, once I was used to it. But my action angered the Wicked Witch of the East, for she had promised the old woman I should not marry the pretty Munchkin girl. When I began chopping again, my axe slipped and cut off my right leg. Again I went to the tinsmith, and again he made me a leg out of tin. After this the enchanted axe cut off my arms, one after the other; but, nothing daunted, I had them replaced with tin ones. The Wicked Witch then made the axe slip and cut off my head, and at first I thought that was the end of me. But the tinsmith happened to come along, and he made me a new head out of tin.
"I thought I had beaten the Wicked Witch then, and I worked harder than ever; but I little knew how cruel my enemy could be. She thought of a new way to kill my love for the beautiful Munchkin maiden, and made my axe slip again, so that it cut right through my body, splitting me into two halves. Once more the tinsmith came to my help and made me a body of tin, fastening my tin arms and legs and head to it, by means of joints, so that I could move around as well as ever. But, alas! I had now no heart, so that I lost all my love for the Munchkin girl, and did not care whether I married her or not. I suppose she is still living with the old woman, waiting for me to come after her.

most of these are production sketches form my One-Two Punch story I'm working on in my free time. I hope to get the book done in the next few months.

I don't know if you guys can tell but I have been using col-erase pencils lately and LOVING them. These things give the great illusion that my art rocks. At first the reds and blues were all i dealt with, but recently I've delved deeper into the box and used the brown and purple and green!
anyway here are my humble offerings, some random older sketches that i finally scanned in.

went to disney last week with the family. Lots of fun! I'll have a few more pics soon.

One thing that I come back from Disneyworld everytime I go:

I want to work there.

Now don't get me wrong it's not that I want to do it full time... But I'd love to work on some of the prop work or ride designs, it's like movie set work but in a more permanent setting.
anyone else want to work for the mouse?

more art coming, i promise!

Mike Wieringo, 44 has died.

A loss for all the members. He was Warm and sincere with every
post he made. A true professional but still connected with artists of all walks of life.
This is a shock for everyone, it's something that came out of the blue. My heart goes
out to his family and loved ones.

You are and will always be missed Mike.
