I am a HUGE fan of the Japanese animation studio, GAINAX. I've been in love with the studio and their animation ever since I was introduced to Evangelion. As soon as I saw the kinetic action, the beautiful and emotional shots, I was immediately hooked. I absolutely adore FLCL and Gurren Lagann. I've only seen a couple of their latest, Panty and Stocking with Garterbelt , and from what I've seen, GAINAX has done it again and delivered a crazy-whacked out and addictive anime. So when I received an email from Toyonori Yamada from Gainax, asking me if they can come by to visit Pixar, I was so excited to have them as my guests. Whenever I hang out with Gainax I turn into a fanboy, so that's my explanation for some of the goofier pictures. I had a great time hanging out with the Gainax staff that included: Sushio, Akemi Hayashi, Masahiko Otsuka, Kumiko Sano, Hiromi Wakabayashi, Toyonori Yamada and Satsuki Yamashita. Extra special thanks to the Pixar staff who helped me make the tour run so smoothly, especially to Mach Kobayashi, Akiko Minaga and Grant Alexander.

So I was watching the Fedor vs. Silva fight on Strikeforce this past weekend and I was inspired to do a piece that was bad ass and vicious. Keeping with the superhero theme I decided to draw one of the most brutal confrontations in comic history, the very first appearance of Wolverine when he fought the Hulk. I wanted to depict the meeting almost like a MMA match, with the fighters looking like they been through hell. Their faces are smashed and bruised. I drew Hulks eye shut, kinda like Fedor's at the end of the fight. I drew Wolverine's face, just as bashed, his cheek is all swollen. I understand that they have healing powers, but I figured that in this battle, they wouldn't recuperate quickly. In my mind neither opponent would heal up for weeks, maybe months. That is how epic this battle would be.
Tick. Tock. Get Up. Stop...
Happy Valentine's Day everyone.
Feel the love, 90's X-Men style!
Wassup Gambit, haven't seen you in a while!

One time, Jun Santos took his car and gunned it to 88 MPH and made his way back in time to save Julio Valiente from certain death. Here's the proof of that particular moment in history.
And for those of you who need a refresher on Julio Valiente here's a link:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kwaVI2cVPNM&feature=feedu

Waaaay back in the day I was kinda into graffiti art. I wasn't really good at the letter stuff, but my characters were cool. One of them that became sort of my go to guy was this little rabbit character named Hector. He was this surfer type character. Every now and then, I feel like breaking him out. Especially when I am feeling a bit homesick. Today was one of those days, so here he is in all of his glory. Was looking at some Jack Kirby Silver Surfer for some inspiration. That guy surely is the KING
Exploding S#!t everywhere... check
