:spotlight-left: Welcome to my gallery! :spotlight-right:

Here you can see some of my art. Obviously, not everything I draw winds up here. Gotta' keep some form of quality control. I mostly do traditional drawings, but more recently I've also began working in Photoshop with fully digital art.

More is to come soon! I'm always working on new stuff.

Posting once every full moon since 2011.

In the world of the arts, I am what you could call a jack of all trades. Minus the “master of none” part that is, then it becomes a put-down.

Mostly I am a purely independent filmmaker, depending entirely on my own resources. I was fortunate enough to have a bit of a wit with film editing and I always find work-arounds with certain challenges that meet me behind the scenes. Currently, my biggest achievement is my black comedy short “The Counting Man”. At heart, it’s me going around saying “Look ma’, no hands!”. I do have other flicks planned out though in which it’s the same thing, but with me doing things like jumping over a shark while saying the same quote.


Aside from that, I’m also the individual behind the comic series “The Missed Adventures of Acid Ball & Friends”, a comic that’s essentially my answer to the many questions regarding humanity that are thrown around in the modern world.

I also write a bit. I mostly work on film related essays, but I’m also in for an eerie short story or two sometimes. Most of the stories I write are influenced by the many horror films I’ve seen, going from stuff like “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari” to “Vampire Circus”. With the strong horror influence however, my stories never really reach that area. If anything, I’ll mostly refer to my stories as “absurdist fiction”.

The main focus of this account though is my drawings. The only thing I can really say is, if you have the time, to look in the scrapbook. It contains the improvised sketchbook drawings I do at public events (concerts, parties etc). I find that out of all the stuff I do, my sketchbook doodles always wind up being my personal favorites. The nature they have has a certain freedom and liveliness that is hard for me to recreate later on.

Almost forgot to mention, I write music too. It’s all a bit disjointed, but still entertaining.

Now is the time for me to shamelessly promote my other accounts:

He's The World's Greatest Sinner by eyeodyssey
He's The World's Greatest Sinner
I wonder if there's any other bits of art related to this bizarre film around the web.

"The World's Greatest Sinner" is a hard film to describe. Think "A Face In The Crowd" if it was starring a character who always looks like he's on the verge of a mental breakdown. In this film you follow a man named God (formerly Clarence) Hilliard. God one day decides to become a rock sensation. Unfortunately for God, he never realized that talent was a bit of an important factor of making one a music sensation of any genre. His concerts are comprised of him spastically strumming on an unplugged electric while shouting at a greatly confused audience. At least he never had to worry about essentially cloning the musical style of someone who was writing stuff long before him. Ain't that right Elvis? Never heard of Carl before, have you? I digress. One thing leads to another and he goes from being a "musician" to a politician, and eventually a religious messiah. It's all a bit odd. Despite having sloppy editing and strange writing, the film is still really entertaining in its own surreal way. It's a neat specimen of early low budget filmmaking. Another plus is that it has the quote: "I'm not drunk, I'm just a politician!"

Oddly enough, not only was the film directed by and starring one of the more prominent actors of Stanley Kubrick's anti-war masterpiece "Paths Of Glory", but it also has backing it up a score by an early Frank Zappa.

I just woke up today to see that the most recent strip of my currently running webcomic, "The Missed Adventures of Acid Ball", was filed for a copyright claim on Facebook.

This is the Tumblr upload of said strip.


Don't know about you, but I don't see anything in it that would have anyone going up in arms.
All the characters in each strip are my own (excluding one off parodies of writers like David Foster Wallace and the like), and I drew every panel myself both on paper and in Photoshop. The comic itself began as a two part mini-series that I posted on my wall back in 2012, this comic being a reboot of sorts. I would've tried to file a counter claim, but even I know that it would've been futile.
While the strip itself was taken down from the page's (and presumably other people's) feeds, you can still see it in the photos section which is odd.
Needless to say, I'm a bit red with rage. Maybe pink. Either way, it's not my usual pale from being one who's not too keen on sunlight.

A bit of color testing that I did over a sketch that was originally drawn on paper.

Exorcism by eyeodyssey
Exorcism
A trepanation is the act of making a burrow in a person's skull to expose the brain. It was said to expel evil spirits. With Hugo’s case, those spirits were the only things that occupied his otherwise completely hollowed out head. He is not a man anymore, he is the Devil's Puppet.

Exorcism - Killing Joke
Pleasures Of The Flesh - Killing Joke

Acid Ball #6: The Bloated Ego of Personalities by eyeodyssey
Acid Ball #6: The Bloated Ego of Personalities
This is more of a sample than anything else of my new webcomic, "The Missed Adventures of Acid Ball". It stars a cast of surreal characters including Acid Ball, CoCo, the Collective Individual, Crescent Mind and Average Joe the Superhero. As of the date that I post this, the series is already getting close to its tenth strip. The general humor of Acid Ball is surrealist themed black comedy.

To see the followup strip that shows what happens next, follow the link below. New strips are published weekly on Saturdays and Wednesdays.

I'm quite familiar with them, been adding them to my favorites since 2013. You do great work dude, keep it up. I also like the Hellboy one you did a while back.
