Twin tag team sketchup

Hola Amigos and Amigas!

How is everyone doing? I hope everyone had a great weekend. So, my family and I, all last week were doing some spring cleaning....wait...hardcore spring cleaning, like getting a big ole dumpster and throwing alot of stuff away, and donating alot of old clothes to the salvation army. anywhoo...we decided to take a trip to vegas to unwind and chill. I for one do not gamble but do love the environment. so long walks and observing people was loads of fun. people talk some crazy stuff when they are drunk. lol and my twin brother Wesley...yes i have one and he is identical (although ever since school I gained a little weight) when back in the room, decided to do a tag team drawing that we didn't do in awhile. Wes is an awesome artist and is the reason I am drawing today. I remember back in the day he loved to draw a lot and I noticed that he got some good attention for, I'm not saying I was neglected growing up, mind you lol, I was loved by my parents hehehe but when he drew, my little ass got jealous so I drew too hahaha.

Fast forward to the future, He still remains to draw (beautifully might I add) to this day. His style is way different than mine but got some mad mad skillz and I admire his style tremendously. He is a bit shy showing his stuff. but maybe someday i'll snap some pictures when he's not looking and post it here hehehe. anywhoo, hope you likes and I'll be posting frequently soon my peeps!


ye ole m00k!

p.s he's gonna kill me lol

My Friend Tony

Hola amigos and amigas,

How is everyone doing? it's been quite a month for this m00k. Most importantly being the death of one of my good friend's at my day job at the art store. My old buddy Tony that I was talking about in the previous posts from West Virgina, sadly passed away last Wednesday. I worked with Tony for well over ten years at the store. The first person I worked with and grew to admire. He was a tough old goat and a person who would tell you what he thought. I used to love getting stories outta him about his life back home, i could tell it always brought a smile to his face when he talked about the past. The Lakers was always a favorite topic to talk about and comparing all the players over time.

He always looked out for me and cared about my well being. When I went back to school to get my degree in animation, he would always ask my girlfriend how I was doing and made sure I was doing good in school. When I finally graduated he was so proud of me. Tony didn't want me to stay at the store forever. He wanted me to do something with my life...something better. As the year pass after graduating, he notice I was bummed that I didn't get a gig yet. He told me to hang in there, you'll get something wayne. everyday passed and I was getting sick of the store, as well as Tony. I was losing hope believe it or not..and my buddy Tony was getting sicker and sicker health wise. about a month ago he didn't show up to work, and we found out at the store that he was rushed to an i.c.u at a hospital. Unfortunately, all of us did not get to visit him before he passed.

when I went to his viewing, His wife said to me, "oh, your Wayne! He always talks about you. he said you are his artist friend. He told me to tell you, to stick with it kid." I teared up of course, but realized to myself, that I gotta jump back on the horse and make this happen. Tony? I know you're up there man. thanks for that last push. I won't let you down.

here's some sketches from awhile back. I'm working on new stuff now

Oh and thank you for all the people coming back here to check my blog out. I apologize for the little pause.

smile it up!

ye ole m00k!

oh and this is my 100th post!!! I dedicate this to my friend Tony Kuffner
