A life of just drawing wrestling content ... i can live with that.
Long Live The Villain
Been on a Marty Scurll crazed lately, this was actually pretty fun to do. 

Also this is gonna be my last artwork for the next month or so. Test season and i'm trying for a good college. 

Also also, i'm gonna try and send this to The Villain himself later :3

It's a birthday just like every other day. A constant struggle of leaving the bed and start drawing.

Enough with that tho, there's a reason why i love Garth Ennis, and it's because he's not just a great writer, he's THE best war stories writer of the comic medium. I'm always fascinated by war, and how it could be portrayed, and i've also planned to do some war story sometime in the future. So i guess why not now.

I did originally plan to color the thing, but i guess i'm too lazy to do it now, and eh, black and white fits the mood. Also i'm done looking at images of dead people ( i looked up dead soldiers for reference, no idea why i did that in the first place ) so probably some other time.

What Happened In Chicago

" It's still real to me, damnit "

One of the thing that most people overlook when " Wresting " is brought to the conversation is like every television series, movies, book, wrestling, in it's core, is just another form of storytelling, pure and simple. The difference is just how it's being portrayed, and most often or not, the idea of wrestling is " fake " somehow leave an impression on most people, to the point it compromise the core idea of it. Wrestling is misunderstood, by people who don't get it, and don't try to get it.

Again with the storytelling aspect of wrestling, when done right, it's a thing of beauty. NXT Takeover: Chicago, no matter how lacklusted the whole show is, will go down as one with one of the most shocking ending of all time. Well, maybe, not shocking, part of us all saw it coming, but ... probably we were not ready to learn how to take it.

The image of Tommaso Ciampa turned on his best friend, the one who sacrifice himself to save Ciampa, Johnny Gargano, will be on our mind for a long long time.

The " break up " of #DIY is still so emotional to me, and i guess when i'm overly emotional, i just have to make a comic about it.

P/S: Also i'm at fault of being unable to focus on one thing, i'm really sorry that i haven't done One Page in a long while, and also my Bray Wyatt story is also long from being finished.

Say Hello 2 Heaven

Sorry for the lack of update lately, but i'm just too busy with school to do any comics for now, however i was inspired enough to do something after what happened in the last few days.

Soundgarden and Mother Love Bone were at one point, two of the most important bands of my teenage life so i think that's fitting that i do something after the death of Chris Cornell. Not just for him, but also for Andrew

Tribute note should be written very soon.

Plain and simple, i love creating comics and music, and sometimes both things mix well together!
On March 18th, 2017, Bernie Wrightson, legendary artist, best known as the co-creator of Swamp Thing ( with Len Wein ) and for his 
works with Eerie Comics and his illustration of the Mary Shelley's classic,Frankenstein, passed away at age 68 after a long battle with cancer. On that day, the world lost a wonderful artist, a true pioneer, an original Master of Horror. And for me, i just lost one of my first ever comics heroes. 

I got to know Wrightson's work a little bit too late in comparison to the time i've spend reading comics. Despite being a huge fan of Swamp Thing, i discovered the character only through the wonders of stories crafted by Alan Moore, by Scott Snyder, but for some reasons, i never really had a chance to get into the original series, the one created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson, in one of his first truly striking and haunting artwork. I got to know his work later on when i discovered a mini series called " Batman:The Cult ", which for me at the time, the strangest story i've ever read, not just in the boundary of an usual Batman comics. It's macabre, twisted, and the mesmerizing artwork of Wrightson just sucked me in and never let go. I became a fan on that very day, and soon after, like Alice who felt down the rabbit hole and discovered a whole new world, the twisted new dimension brought by his artwork changed my perception of how art would and should be forever. 

Still to this day, when i open and reread through his first Swamp Thing run, or just spend hours and hours staring at some of his illustration in Frankenstein, i'm still amazed by not just how he can be so intricate when it comes to details, but also the skill and time and dedication that needed to produce them.

Bernie by Raven-HD-Maverick

For my artwork, i can say personally that i don't take much after from a lot of people, but Bernie Wrightson, he's especially one of my biggest influence, and just to see him departed from the great plateau of life, well, it certainly motivated me to do something in return, despite how sloppy, rush, or bad it was. For Bernie, i'm inspired to do the only thing that i know.

Creating art.
