These posts are either "jump pages" for my weblog or posts-in-process that will eventually appear there. For what it's worth, here's an archive of these random bits. The picture to the left is by a famous comic book artist.

Blade 2 is worth checking out since it's directed by Mexican gothic maestro Guillermo del Toro, who made the offbeat and spooky films Cronos, Mimic, and The Devil's Backbone. Great shots of vampires swinging from rafters in night-combat/ninja attire, and the transformation sequence of a new breed of "vampire-killing vampire" (depicted in my sketches below) is pretty wild. Each vampire has a seam running from its lower lip to the base of its throat, which splits open to reveal a toothed-vaginal maw with neurotoxin-secreting tentacle-tongues. Kind of Predator meets the face-splitting husky from John Carpenter's The Thing. The effect isn't quite so scary after they've shown it to you eight times, though.

Caution: R-rated drawings below.
