This is an interesting video on the size comparison of a black hole. This just gives you an ideas of how truly massive and intense this would be if you saw one up close. Check it out below.




My Inktober 2018 Artwork UPDATED!


Inktober 2018


If you haven't heard of Inktober before here's the scoop. An artist named Jake Parker decided in 2009 to make a little challenge for himself to draw and ink everyday in the month of October and he encouraged others to join him. Here we are 9 years later and it's still going strong. Jake puts out what he calls a prompt list, a jumping off point if you will for inspiration of art each day. There is no right or wrong here, only art. So I have participated for a few years now.

I am finally getting around to scanning my own artwork and uploading it here. Below you will see my entries this year. I will update this as I scan more work.

1. Poisonous

I'm going to try to relate all of my pieces to my Grasspeople project, a fantasy adventure. I'll do my best to have a new one each day. This is a cute little scamp known as the stinger mouse. Be careful where you step.

2. Tranquil

This is the Terrace Falls, near Quadnoc, many miles away from the Grasslands.

3. Roasted

4. Spell

5. Chicken

The indigenous creatures known as the Cheks or Chicken Warriors were searching the black river banks for a small flower known for its healing power. There is safety in numbers because this is home to the Grizzivolous which are vicious hunters.

6. Drooling

Grizzivolous is hungry and hunting on the banks of the Black river.

7. Exhausted

Exhausted. Monks ongoing search for traces of his family led him nowhere. Thoroughly exhausted, he decided to nap in the grass fields not far from the Black river.

8. Star

As Monk fell into a deep sleep, he began dreaming under the stars about the simpler times of his youth.

9. Precious

10. Flowing


11. Cruel


12. Whale


13. Guarded


14. Clock


15. Weak


16. Angular

New York Comic Con 2018 was bigger than last year


This!

It was another amazing year at New York Comic Con! The artists finally get a proper set up after the convention center went through a renovation last year. With that said, there were so many new and exciting reveals. Follow along as I finally get to edit and update all the pictures from NYCC 2018.


One thing is certain, TV and Video Games dominated this years Con. There was an incredible turn out of TV networks like Netflix and HBO with a Game of Thrones pop up.


That didn't stop fans from doing what they do best! Cosplay, Comics and a massive amount of geek merchandising.


Jason, Jason everywhere...


Even on opening day, there is an intense amount of people attending this year.


Every year the Cosplay costumes get more and more detailed.


I've taken hundreds of photos this year, and I will continue to post them at the bottom of the page if you want to check back.

Nasa's Mars Habitat Challenge Has a Finalist!


If you haven't heard about this yet, below is Nasa's info on the challenge.

NASA's Centennial Challenges: 3D-Printed Habitat Challenge

About the Challenge

NASA and its partners are holding a $2.5 million competition to build a 3-D printed habitat for deep space exploration, including the agency’s journey to Mars. The multi-phase challenge is designed to advance the construction technology needed to create sustainable housing solutions for Earth and beyond.

Phase 1 of the competition ran through Sept. 27, 2015. This phase, a $50,000 design competition, called on participants to develop state-of-the-art architectural concepts that take advantage of the unique capabilities 3-D printing offers. The top 30 submissions were judged, and prize money was awarded at the 2015 World Maker Faire in New York.

Phase 2 is now open and challenges competitors to demonstrate a recycling system that can create structural components using terrestrial and space-based materials and recyclables.

Phase 3, which is currently under development, will focus on fabrication of complete habitats and will follow completion of Phase 2.

With that said, check out the video below of the First Place finalist chosen for this habitat. It looks like some pretty amazing tech.
