A random page from a sketchbook. Looking for characters, mucking about.

long time not posting! must say i was in a combination of "whatever" and "who cares?" which is a neverending story with highest pick on internet where communication seems so light that you never know if there's actually someone out the screen!
Well, it took me almost 2 years to get back on doing linocut, and i finally felt on back again!
So did this for Crack festival with thematic "Coyota" who is a feminist symbol for crack fest. Here is Coyota rebis, the alchimistic version of this symbol, where Hermes Coyota and Aphrodite Coyota are melted together. This was following another linocut i made for a hand fan with alchimy on thema, so that was the mood of the moment!

I'VE BEEN WORKING ON THE BOARD GAME DUNGEON DEGENERATES FOR THE PAST YEAR - IF YOU'VE BEEN FOLLOWING ALONG - I STARTED PRODUCING CARD ART FOR THIS WAY BACK IN 2007 OR SOMETHING WHEN I REALIZED THAT I STILL WANTED TO DO ILLUSTRATIONS FOR A FANTASY ROLE PLAYING GAME. TEN YEARS LATER - WE'VE LAUNCHED GOBLINKO'S FIRST BOARD GAME - DUNGEON DEGENERATES - WITH MY CHILDHOOD FRIEND & LONG-TIME CREATIVE PARTNER ERIC RADEY. HERE'S SEVEN NEW POSTERS I CREATED FOR THE GAME.
THE COLORS ARE INFLUENCED DIRECTLY BY EARLY VIDEO GAMES' LIMITED COLOR USE & BOLD, HALLUCINOGENIC COLORS SHINING OUT OF THE BLACKNESS - LIKE PULSATING BLACK LIGHT POSTERS COME TO LIFE. THE ART & TONE ARE PART OF MY BROADER WORK OF ROCK&ROLL, DRUGS, DEMONOLOGY & SEX & FUNKY, WEIRD, SLEAZY UNDERBELLY TYPE SHEEIT. YOU CAN GET THE POSTERS HERE. AND YOU CAN PRE-ORDER THE DUNGEON DEGENERATES BOARD-GAME HERE.

Some time in 1975, I create the "book" U.F.O. Shark and Squid. Well, pieces of lined notebook paper stapled together with apparently some attempt at a plot or theme for the first few pages. Been going through some of the drawings with the intent of re-creating some of them. I was going to re-create the entire book, but some of the drawings have absolutely stumped me. I don't remember what the heck I was trying to depict in many of my drawings, and this one is no exception. I can identify Ultraman and the Science Patrol members, as well as their space/aircraft...there IS a U.F.O. that appears on a few pages....Cathedral Head was a monster I came up with.....don't know what that round thing with the spot is. It looks like the character in the lower left is holding a huge machine up, but that's a house with windows in the background. I hadn't exactly grasped perspective yet.
