"Nuke The Nukes" poster for Art, Media, Culture, Design class. 
I did the illustration, the extremely talented Laura Basson did the wording.
The concept I also did not come up with and was developed by a member of our group based on the project which was to create some form of art to tackle a issue (or something along these lines). Thank you to my group for presenting it this past Thursday, and I hope everyone runs out and prints one of these poster size. It’s pretty sweet.

Season 2: Episode 9 of “Experts at Nothing” titled “Good Old Fashioned Scare” or “Monkey Business” (pick your own title).
Part 2 of a 3 part series. I thought the comic could use a little anthropomorphism (all good comics have some) so the monkey is getting a little attention.
For all the comics back to back check out expertsatnothing.tumblr.com. It’s a good time.

Season 2: Episode 6 of “Experts at Nothing” titled “Awake: You Killed Me”
And so concludes the four part series, by not having Sam be really dead.
And by including reference to current developments in science.
And by melting a face.

Season 2, Episode 2 of Experts at Nothing titled “Robots Don’t Drink Coffee”
I will post more later on the process of making this, as well as the original version which was basically impossible to read to anyone but me. 
But for now, enjoy all 24 panels in 1080p HD.

Welcome back! Season 2, Episode 1 of Experts at Nothing titled “Sky CSI”

Welcome back! Season 2, Episode 1 of Experts at Nothing titled “Sky CSI”

The first frame to yesterdays ‘Experts at Nothing’ panel. Put them next to each other and it makes 2 thirds of a comic. The last 1/3rd will probably never be seen. Unless you search for it in the depths of the internet or happen to know someone whom I’ve sent it to (only at most 2 people). So as the old saying goes, “since you’ll never know how it ended, enjoy how it began!”

So you know what time of year it is? School time. And with school comes a new season of ‘Experts at Nothing’. Here is a frame from one of the comics that will never make it to print because I won’t let it…because it has no chance of being funny. BUT what it does have, is coolness. Or at least I think so. So I hope everyone’s excited, I think I’ve improved a lot of things this year (the humor is still hit or miss) and I hope everyone is going to enjoy it. So stay tuned. Should be a fun semester!

So I do apologize for having no extremely new material for a while but I had to pack my printer up since the semester is over and I head home today. On the plus side though, here is a look inside the process of some of the comics. I only used this method for two of the episodes and have since reverted to actually building the scenes in photoshop based on elements I draw and scan in.

The one thing I really like about the way I’m doing it in these images is that there is a very nice, professional, hand drawn product to show people as opposed to the photoshop way where I simply end up with a finished product and lots of single drawings scattered around my room.

So enjoy, and I promise I’ll throw up some of the stuff I’ve been working on lately, which happens to be mostly Batman drawings. Don’t ask.

P.S. Check out the words on the second image. I found this awesome comic template after much Internet searching and have been using it ever since for the creation of my boxes. In these images I would draw the stuff in, scan it, and then crop but now I have different saved files with different arrangements of boxes (mostly the three in a row arrangement since it fits the paper the best). It was a pretty sweet find and if for whatever reason someone wants a link to the site here it is:
