Super Ugly

So, I didn’t put a drawing last Sunday. These past few months I’ve found myself hell of busy with something booked almost every night of the week – not to mention weekends which I was usually doing something from sun up to sun down. Don’t get me wrong, I love it – being busy, that is. I have to keep moving or I die, like a shark. A fat, bearded shark.

A shark that, apparently, when he has down time, it becomes way way down time. Instead of doing something constructive like drawing, or hell, even just catching up on games, I barely moved and just watched conspiracy videos on youtube all weekend. Which, uh… which turns out, isn’t very good to do. That is a weird rabbit hole.

Anyway, back this week with another drawing. This one comes from a pretty cool circumstance. I’ve got a buddy named Cammy. He’s got a site called all about comics called aptly, Cammy’s Comic Corner. You’ve probably even seen his stuff up on Bleeding Cool. When he was at Emerald City Comic-Con last year, he got me a couple drawings. One of them is from an artist who goes by Super Ugly. Cammy, of course, had him draw me a Ghostbuster.

Pretty cool, huh? Since I wasn’t there in person to talk to him, I’ll let the man speak for himself:

I am Super Ugly, and I am an artist who has his hands in many projects. From kids books, toys, illustration, jewelry, etc. I released “Monsters Are Just Like Us,” a kids book, through Action Lab comics last year, which was distributed worldwide, and is now available on Comixology.

I am currently working on another kids book entitled, “Atomic Fred.” It’s a tale told in rhyme about a lonely super hero and how he makes friends. My kid books are geared towards all ages and adults, and I hope it lives in a world with Maurice Sendak, Dr. Seuss and Mercer Mayer.

Who’s your favorite Ghostbuster?

Ray Stantz. It would be easy to pick Venkman, but Ray created the Ghostbusters. He was the wide eyed innocence that created the idea.

For more of cool art like this, or to listen to some of his tunes, check out his website, or follow him @superugly. He’s also got a high-concept blog like this one, showcasing art on guest checks.

    This is the kind of website where a drawing of John McClane needs no caption. Really cool stuff.
