The New G.I. Joe movie

Okay, Snakes eyes looks awesome. However, the rest of the Joes look like members of Blackhawk. No G.I. Joe insignias, no special things to make each member stand out. Once again, the studios have opted for the basic black look that the x-men started. WTF? I am so tired of every hero having the same stupid outfit. Gung-ho seriously can't wear his jeans and torn denim vest? Seriously. Too gay? Too macho? To much the character? No classic tan and green for Duke? No cool Scarlet outfit? Geez. How f'n drabe. Sure to suck at a theatre near you, especially since basically the plot makes these guys out to be mercanary fighters and not secret military soldiers. So in essence they are Blackhawk.

R.I.P. Bettie Page

The last of the Pin-up Queens has passed away. Bettie has always been an inspiration artistically for me. I always found her build and size the way I prefer to draw women. Skinny, exaggerated, or abnormally shaped women are easy to draw. I am still working on perfecting the beauty of what was the Bettie Page model. She had a tortured life and I hope she has at last found peace. So long last of the great Pin-up gals. In my opinion, you were the greatest!
