I'm really excited about this club that my friends started! I now have a reason to draw again other than school or sheer boredom! I'll have to do an art dump very soon but, in the mean time, Here's my first post! It's a MOOSE! And of course, there are ponies in it; do you even have to question that?

After my high school obsession with Powerpuff Girls, I really shouldn’t be that surprised that I was assimilated into the Brony herd so quickly. However, I think that it takes a bit more tact to explain a 26 yr old man watching, drawing, and blogging about magical ponies than it does to explain a 14 yr old fanboy of an ironic comedy about little superheroes. At any rate, the time has come for my new self-portrait. Yup, you guessed it… I’m a pony in it. Deal with it.

Typically the term for older or grown-up, male fans of the "My little Pony" franchise. But since there is no common and nalog term for female fans of the show, brony can as well be used gender-neutral.
Brony 1: Well, although I am male and grown-up, I actually like watching this new "My little Pony" show.
Brony 2: Don't worry, it's cool! We also do. Welcome to the herd, brony.
Brony 1: What's your favorite pony?
Brony 2: Fluttershy, cause she's just so cute!
Brony 3: Hey man, those are fighting words. Rarity is obviously the best pony!
Brony 2: What are you going to do?
Brony 3: I'm gonna love and tolerate the crap out of you.
So after discovering the amazing Cheezeburger Network site “My Little Brony,” I had to see what all the hype was about. Today, I’m afraid to admit that I too have been assimilated into the herd of very secure “Bronies". I really need to get a job and soon before I start watching Disney channel sitcoms on top of this! Anyway, Here’s some of my recently drawn and prettyly colored proof of my newly adopted lifestyle choice…

And now, the moment we’ve all been waiting for, the glorious unveiling of my very first comic! I’d like to thank all both of my readers and the little people who posed for me in my head. Now, enjoy with all of your heart the greatest 3 minutes of your life!
More commentary to come!

Okay, I am now, officially, a loser. But a loser with a Phineas & Ferb self-portrait! Creepy? Yes. But I'm sure that anyone who beholds this latest work of art will bow in respect to this master of awesomation. Now, some simple folk may say this "bowing" is more like "gripping a downcast forehead in disappointment"... to which I shall reply,"HA!" and aslo, "That is only true sometimes!" What now, naysayers?!!

Oh man! I love this character! She’s not nearly as much of a comedic character as Candace on the show, but her archetypal cute little girl-scout with the essential school girl crush character-type is one of the reasons so many of us can connect with the show. The girl got me quotin “whatchyadoooin” like there’s no tomorrow!!

As usual, I've been completely obsessed with a new cartoon on the air. For the first time since as long as I can remember (roughly several months on avg.) Disney Television has produced something worth me not vomiting and yet still finding the vomit to be a more fulfilling pastime than to suffer the excruciating lack of creativity in shows like Suite Life! But I digress, the hit series 'Phineas and Ferb' is quite possibly the funniest, most creative, and highest quality cartoon in production! Hopefully, you'll be seeing a lot of little gems like this one coming up in the near future ;)

Now, about this motley crew of strange images beneath the text… Lemme begin with a tale from long ago and far away.
It was Krystina’s birthday and my 4 or 5 year old little sister, “Colie”, decided to honor the occasion with a festive cheer. So, she began with jubilant confidence:
“Gimme a F!”
Krystina smiled, “F!”
“Gimme a O!”
Colie didn’t hesitate, “Gimme a S!”
“What does that spell?!”
Krystina replied in a hilariously quizzical tone, “Fos?”
This story is still a big hit on any of my 6 siblings’ birthdays. Why, you ask? I dunno, but at least this time it includes Baman and Piderman.

This baby’s for my buddy ol’ pal, Paul. I’m not sure exactly what he has planned for this little bird, or for whose birthday card he needs it. But whatever it is, I’m hoping it will be neither lame nor legal.
Here ya go, bro! Go disappoint someone!

Birthdays seem to be the only thing that keep me drawing lately. This one is done by everyone’s favorite mood setter… the Awkward Turtle! You really gotta love this guy; not only can he turn almost any completely unsettling situation into a festive game of hip sign language… but he comes with an all star posse who can fill in when he’s out saving the world! You know awkward turkey, awkward moose, awkward starfish, and my new favorite: the awkward backpack!
I actually drew this deliciously questionable piece as a birthday card for my friend Nardeen; complete with a quote to make even the weirdest of folks scratch their head in confusion…
“Awkward turtle would like to bite your finger.”
In case you didn’t guess, there is a bit of an esoteric side to this one. The finger biting gag is in reference to the youtube vid “Charlie bit my finger”. If you haven’t seen it, WATCH IT!!! In the mean time, u can trust good ol’ turtsy here will be waiting for you when you come back… waiting… staring… awkward…

I rarely to never get serious with my posts, but I was moved to literal nausea when I came across this dreadful garbage!
It’s sad that this is the image we portray to the web surfing non-believer. They see us as a club or culture that only differs from them in the level of perceived judgmental hypocrisy. How can we claim to be different when we are utilizing the same tactics of lust and greed to entice and ensnare. Mind you, most of these “Christian Dating” sites (an interesting oxymoron which I touch on often) are run by secular businesses who also run homosexual dating sites, swinger sites (that’s a married person with extramarital relations), and every other vile practice imaginable; there’s a hook-up site to match any fetish.
So which lure do they use on compromising Christians? Easy, throw some Christianese in the mix and abstain from nudity on the site and you can still dupe a believer into spending God’s money to stray from God’s plans and intentions for singlehood and marriage. You can read my 12 page report on the matter of dating in and of itself on my myspace (look up firstname.lastname@example.org); In which, I was not able to address the issue of “Christian Dating” sites. However, just take a look at one, do the research, and you tell me where this fits in with God’s perfect will (not permissive).
I know I’m walking on thin ice with this one, I know I will offend many and hurt some feelings. Just know that this post is an assault against none other than the websites themselves, no Christian participants or resultant couple thereof. Once more, this is not against anyone I know, only the incongruous business of trafficking lonely, out of focus hearts by worldly, Godless means. I’m sorry for the hurt feelings, but I pray everyday for the revival of Godly romance and surrendered singlehood. Please join in my prayers!

I Love Chowder! It’s a hilarious show that embodies my sense of humor completely! One character who I find particularly amusing is Panini. She’s a boy crazy pink rabbit with killer eyelashes and an obsessive crush on Chowder, (which is the premise for my favorite catchphrase of the show… “I’M NOT YOUR BOYFRIEND!”) hahaha… so true…
Really, I never get to watch it unless I’m visiting my dad and the kids in SoCal, so it’s certainly a nice treat every time I come over. One thing I noticed about Panini, though… she seemed strikingly familiar. I googled cartoon girl bunny images (not a good idea if your adult content block isn’t on… eeesh!) and lookey what I reckognized. Striking resemblance eh?
I doodled this for the kids after my magnificent revelation...
I think what I like most about Panini is that she’s appallingly nostalgic! I’m sure we’ve all had either our elementary school girlfriends and boyfriends, or at least had some kid who would constantly follow us, give us useless but sweet gifts, call us their significant other (though they may not have even known the meaning of the term), and would sob ferociously at the thought of you possibly being interested in Denise Gonzales, even though there was nothing going on between you two, and you just wanted to say “hi”, is that so wrong?!?! I just wanted to say HI!!!! GET OFF MY BACK WOMAN!!!
Oh, and she can cook… that’s a plus.

You know, I really haven’t been putting a lot of sketches up lately. So, here ya go:
Animales con attitude! I wanted to try a few different styles out by varying detail and expression: fat, skinny, medium; furry, smooth, and scruffy; and ugly, uglier, and Ben Stiller.
I love the way the giraffe came out! the walrus is okay, and as you can see, the squirrel is an epic fail! haha, anyway... Ben, thanks for inspirin me, bud ;)

Don’t you love English people? I certainly do. "Why" you ask? "Why in God’s name would you fancy the most vile, decrepit, slithering, heartless culture on the planet?"
My my my, someone has a few British issues; for shame! Well for one thing, they like eating weird crap… that’s pretty cool! If you mess up a meal by way of say burning the food or accidentally smothering the main course in pigs blood, you can still serve it to them provided you dub the wreck with a fancy name (i.e. yorkshire pudding, or haggis) and BAM! You’re a culinary genius!
Even cooler still, My friend Emma, (as seen in the awesome pic) said British Women come standard with an off button! Huzzah! Then again, even an angry English rant would sound pleasant enough to not even be a bother.
And my favorite thing about people from the UK… that’s right, the fact that many of our harmless euphemisms are swear words in their culture! Good show ol’ boy!
So take that Pastor Mike! The British aren’t so bad after all!

I forgot to mention that I was teaching art to my 8th graders and showing a few of them how to use photoshop. The girl was drawn by a young girl name Alexandra Martinez (14) and the boy was drawn by Michael Smith (also 14). It took them a lil while to complete these… so show some love!
