078_It-takes-two-to-Tango



This drawing was commissioned by Jenny an old high school friend and her fiancee.

Love is TANGO and TANGO is love! Yes, it is a dance, yet so much more then just any dance. It is an ongoing conversation between two souls, two hearts and two bodies. It is a sacred dance we enter in with one another, where both "masculine" and "feminine" feel fully expressed and honored.

-ilona glinarsky

Watch how it was made and leave me a comment or review!

Congrats Mike and Mary Jo!


This was a commission that I did for a lovely couple who is getting married this weekend. I met them through Slice of Lime Design who did their stationary suite for their wedding.

Congrats Mike and Mary Jo! You were a pleasure to work with!

Check out the videos of the drawing process:

Now about this drawing:
Former child star Allison Arches (of the Sitcom: And four to go!), now turned paparazzi party princess was out clubbing in LA where she met a strange pale man with hypnotic black eyes who claimed to be descended from Eastern European royalty. Under the influence of X and several mint Mojitos she woke up the next day changed. With a sensitivity to sunlight, and a thirst for human blood she thought she had caught syphilis. Turns out she's just a vampire now. Now she has just signed a deal with MTV for a new reality series called My Life Sucks."

Sometimes we walk
Sometimes we run away
But I know
No matter how fast we are running
Somehow we keep up with each other

The wedding motorcycle drawing

This is for a gig I did for a wedding planning business I do work with sometimes called Proposing Dreams.

They wanted to have something original instead of the regular guest book to sign. Well the groom of the happy couple is a motorcycle enthusiast and they wanted to work the whole family in the drawing, kids, and dogs and all.

Us here at Atomicclockwork Media wish them great happiness in their future together!

In spite of the six thousand manuals on child raising in the bookstores, child raising is still a dark continent and no one really knows anything. You just need a lot of love and luck - and, of course, courage. ~Bill Cosby, Fatherhood, 1986

This DrawsumthinCool goes out to Jeff, K10, and their daughter Lily. She's been around for awhile now, and unfortunately I just got this to them.

075-Zack Defense Squad-STL Branch




"Two hundred million zombies. Who can even visualize that type of number, let alone combat it?...For the first time in history, we faced an enemy that was actively waging total war. They had no limits of endurance. They would never negotiate, never surrender. They would fight until the very end because, unlike us, every single one of them, every second of every day, was devoted to consuming all life on Earth."

— General Travis D'Ambrosia, Supreme Allied Commander, Europe
(quoted from World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War by Max Brooks)

I'll post the sketches on my blog and Facebook and then they can vote on it there...it's very web 2.0. After the sketch is picked I'll update the drawing online (pencils, inks, colors) so everyone can see the progression of the drawing! So let me know what you think...If you're up for it, I'll do the sketches and put them up online. Early Congrats and we love you very much.

Matt, Em, and Jack.


Well give me a hand and vote for your favorite sketch, there will be a voting "thingee" on the side , vote for: A (Western),B (War Movie),C (Action), or D (Romantic Comedy).
Voting will end next Saturday, June the 13th at 11:59 pm.

After that check back to follow the progress of the art.

I am validated!

I got a really cool e-mail the other day from Devin Hyde (who I worked with on the Bullet Angelica.) It went a little like this:

"Hey Matt,

I have been at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival for the last two days,
and it has been pretty great. Yesterday I waited in line to meet
Scott McCloud (and his wife). When I got to the front of the line we
chatted for a bit, and he commented that he really liked my shirt, and
was wondering where it was from. If you guessed that I was wearing my
Bullet Angelica shirt then you guessed correctly! I told him it was
for a web comic, the Bullet Angelica, that I used to work on. The
McCloud's laughed a little, and Scott reiterated that he really like
the logo. I agreed that "my friend Matt" did a really good job."

I now feel validated! Scott Mcloud liked the shirt I designed. That's pretty cool...

Thanks so much Devin for the e-mail!

Eye'n things up.

Yesterday was a beautiful day, and the morning was cool enough that I
took Jack and his pal Matthew out for a small trip. We made it over to
Laumire Sculpture park. I had not been there in years.

There had been a few additions to the park but really not much had
changed.

Em and I have a bunch of pictures that we took there from when we were
just had only been together for a couple years. All of them looked like
something you would see in a Gen X movie like "Singles" or "Reality
Bites". I may have to post those.

Saturday, April 25, 2009

From my first day of my new job.

For those who don't know I started a new job. It's been pretty hectic,
that's why there hasn't been a lot of activity at drawsumthincool. But I
thought it's pretty funny that I found a red Swingline stapler in my new
office. Kinda ironic, but funny. If you don't get the joke go out and
rent Office Space right now. It carries much truth, and we should all be
looking out for our own Red Swingline Staplers.

Life as a (h)Asian American: 04_05_09

I've decided to change up the name of this segment. Since this is window into life, I thought the title should reflect on more on me as a person than of just me being an artist.
(h)Asian is meant to be pronounced hay-shun, as in half-asian. It's strange and fantastic to be apart of two cultures. But also strange and weird to be looking into see that you are different.

Let me know your thoughts on the change.

I'm in kind of a slow season right now. I thought I would try something new that I could do between commissions. So I'm going to try and keep a sketchbook journal, it's kind of like something Jeff over at "The Middle Child" is doing.

Hope you enjoy it and check back, here is my first one. Click on it and it will take you to the full sized image.
