Thirty Four in a row...

If this team were old and on the way out this would be a lot harder but when you look at this team and realize none of them have reached full potential yet it's pretty damn exciting.

GO BLAZERS!!!!!!!!

Thirty Two in a row...


Sorry. I thought I'd do my drawing after the game but this is all I can come up with right now. I'm having a tough time getting control of my hands right now.

I have a great quote from the Blazers radio (courtesy of Chris Legg - I listen to the TV announcers) regarding Greg Oden's superbly beautiful epic block of Von Wafer:

"I not only reject your shot, but I reject your haircut too!"

Vanilla Wafer also got blocked by the backboard there a bit. So the backboard also rejects his hair cut.

Ahhh bliss...

Thirty One in a row...

Sword of Certain Victory +5

There once was a young man who had been forced into fighting in the great Colosseum. Being fairly young he was most certain that he would not last long. Especially since his master had it in for him on a personal level after he had won the heart of his daughter. His master was a cruel man indeed but the young man persevered winning 54 matches in a row much to his master's chagrin.

This angered his master incredibly so one day he came to him in his cell and told the young man, "Tomorrow you die! I shall pit you against my THREE greatest warriors! They shall cut you to ribbons! MWAHAHAA!!"

The young man was filled with despair and sat there crying in his cell. He knew there was no way he could win such a match. When suddenly there before him appeared an old man who was incredibly ugly. He handed the young man a short sword of about 22 inches.

The old man spoke to him softly through rank breath, "Use this sword tomorrow in battle and your victory shall be most certain." The man answered through sobs and tears, "But there are three and it's just can I overcome such odds?"


Then as soon as he had appeared he was gone.

The next day upon entering the great Colosseum brandishing his new found sword the young man faced those fighters and put on a show like few had ever seen or shall ever see again so long as that Colosseum stands. With that sword in hand the man knew no fear! He was in fact completely calm and focused. He also found that he moved twice as fast as normal and using this to his advantage he sliced through his foes with the speed and grace of a cheetah ending the battle in a mere 24 seconds.

In the end he stood in that Colosseum a hero whilst his foes lay there bewildered - and disemboweled. No one knows what happened to that young man after that fateful day. Some say he ran off with his master's daughter but not before slicing his master in two. Some say he went on his own adventure slicing dragons to ribbons and collecting piles of gold.

All agree however that he is most certainly a legend.

Twenty Five in a row...

Greg Oden doesn't eat babies.

I apologize about the copy/paste cheese but I had other things to get done and I didn't want to not have my post done before the game starts. Though the repetition might add to the...humor? Also I probably could have cut out the last panel entirely. Ah comics, such a fascinating art.


Edit: Eh, I don't think I need to be so mean to Yao he's an okay guy but I guess he still makes for a good comic.

Ash Tray Helmet Man Returns Again

Another one I should finish someday...but well at this point you get the idea and Quynh says it's too much for the eye or something which makes sense.

That girl looks like Quynh and that's pretty awesome. Dvorak is also awesome.

Twenty Two in a row...


Three things.

1. The Blazers are losing.
2. Who cares about this drawing.
3. I'm superstitious and I think the Blazers are losing cause I haven't posted today yet so I'm posting this regardless.

Twenty One in a row...

Knives and Blood

As per request. I love saying that.

Seriously someone asked me for this. It's not like I think about women killing people all day. YEESH.


Sally: Havne't you had enough coffee for today?

George: I'll drink as much coffee as I want! I'll drink this entire pot if I want to! I'm going to!

Sally: I thought you loved me! YOU ONLY LOVE COFFEE!

George: That doesn't even make sense!

Sally: Of course it makes sense! You spend more time with your coffee than me!

George: You are a crazy person! Don't you understand! I'm a narcoleptic!

Sally: You made that up so you can drink all the coffee every morning - and at night! I haven't had any coffee in 13 years!

George: FINE! We'll buy two coffee pots!

Sally: Yeah okay.

Bling Phone

I won't lie. I really like this drawing!

Thanks to my good friend Andrew for asking me to draw him a "bling phone".

If anyone else has suggestions for what I should draw I'm open to it. Perhaps you want me to draw a guy with a sword? Or a girl with a sword? Or a sword by itself? Whichever...

Go Blazers!

Fifteen in a row...

That one guy...

I reread that little book the other day and I really enjoyed it. It fills me with so much pride. Looking back on what I wanted to make and reading it now I really feel like I made a comic that did exactly what I wanted it to. Sure it has it's hiccups and all that but in the end it's just, "Yeahhh..." Someday I hope to do that again - except better of course.

Fourteen in a row...

It's not a box.

There are a few problems with it but I don't think pointing them out would solve anything. Actually you could say there are major problems but with the way I'm drawing these days it's easy to just move on and tackle these kind of problems in the next drawing I do.

Plus I'm tired of drawing this one...surprise!

Actually I had a lot of fun with the face and I would like to post a close up of it.

Twelve in a row...


Sometimes I just HAVE to draw a robot with a sword. It's my art crack. I know I should get off this stuff but it's just so fun!

Wow. It's still early there may still be hope for today. I might be back later with something else entirely.

Eleven in a row...


Two things.

1. This drawing is slightly unfinished. To be honest I really don't like it in it's present state. It's missing...something, aside from being unfinished. I might go back to finish it someday but right now I can't bear to draw another scale...thing.

2. I was thinking about my first post in which I said this isn't about me showing off my drawings and I find that kind of ridiculous. I mean drawing on it's own has some level of pride for everyone who does it and I think the more you do it the better you get and the better you get the more you like your work and the more you like your work the more you draw.

Soooo in essence drawing is a pretty arrogant pursuit. I'm sure DaVinci got excited about how awesome his drawings were.

Not that I'm even close to that guy but what I mean is that drawing every day IS REALLY IMPORTANT but it's ridiculous to claim there isn't one iota of pride (self-love, egomania etc...) in the simple act of drawing. Hell from the age of 2 your parents are telling you how nice your scribbles are.

Plus I'm putting them online for the world to see for god sakes though that might be more for my manager to check and see that I'm holding up my end of the deal to be honest. Of course if I ever DO get too high on my work I know just the person to talk to but I could care less about that right now. Before I started this thing I hadn't drawn a damn thing for months.

I guess the choices are egomaniac Tyrone thinking his drawings are great or Eyore Tyrone sitting around moping thinking he'll never amount to anything.

I'm a Leo what do you want?

Five in a row...

Malcolm Frazier
Portland Trailblazers
Height: 6'2
Weight: 120 lbs

PPG: 8.4
RPG: 13.0
SPG: 0.3
BPG: 5.4
APG: 0.2

Biography: Malcolm never liked basketball that much. All throughout high school and college everyone insisted he join the team due to his inhuman jumping ability. He was adamant about not playing basketball because it was a stupid, boring waste of his time.

Instead choosing to go into Communications. After college life wasn't going too well. He had finally gotten a job at a local call center in Beaverton when he was laid off after 3 months. Falling into a deep depression his mother told him to get some exercise to cope. So he went and bought a basketball and found a small court in North Portland to play basketball.

After about an hour of Malcolm throwing the basketball at the hoop a large black escalade breaks down right in front of that shabby court. Out of the vehicle step Nate McMillan, Joel Pryzbilla, Greg Oden, and Steve Blake. Malcolm didn't have a clue who these people were of course so he didn't give a damn. After calling a tow truck Nate turned to Malcolm and said, "Hey you want to play some basketball?"

"Uh...sure." Malcolm said. With that Joel, Greg, and Steve tore off their dress suits (because they were tear away dress suits which is standard issue for all basketball players in order to be able to play at any moment) revealing their Blazer Jerseys.

"You guys part of some sort of club?" Malcolm asked. "Yeah kinda." Greg said laughing.

The rest of this story has been twisted by many retellings since that day. Some claim Malcolm blocked Greg Oden so many times Greg began to think about quitting basketball and had to go through 8 months of therapy. People say Joel Pryzbilla was dunked on so badly and so many times by Malcolm that he spent 2 months in an asylum and changed his name, opting to remove the y and z. Steve Blake went missing for 9 days after that game which has been proven as there are reports of him eating out of garbage cans in downtown Portland and yelling something about defense and nutrition.

Whatever the story was Malcolm completely annihalated those Blazers on that fateful rainy day. It was raining and thundering too, did I mention that? A lot of rain and thunder. It was pretty epic. It was an easy choice from there for Nate and the Blazers to sign Malcolm for the league minimum 8 dollars an hour (it's the economy).

Malcolm did very well that season and is starting to like basketball a lot more now.

Scouting Report: DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES ATTEMPT TO BLOCK ANY OF MALCOLM'S DUNKS. His jump shot is very weak from 15 feet out. Has a 60 inch verticle - that is not a typo.
