Joe Benitez

I got a chance to play poker at Mike Choi's house. The guest that I knew were Rick Loverd, Peter Steigerwald, and Joe Benitez. I grew up on Peter and Joe's artwork, and getting the chance to play poker with these guys was a bit surreal. I think I found Joe the most fascinating person of the even (Rick Loverd was definitely high up there) and found myself picking out some photos of Joe to do this....

Special thanks to Mike Choi for inviting me (and being a rad host) and to Joe and Peter bantering.

Last but not least: Mike Turner. 6.27.08 R.I.P.

L.A. and Aang

So I'm in L.A.

It's been interesting. Finally got the internet on a computer (instead of on my phone) for the first time in 6 MONTHS!! That should tell you how busy I have been. The thing about being busy is that it's hard to prioritize goals when everyone else is grabbing at you to do something. I came to LA to further my artistic career and only had a chance to shit out these three sketches. I'm a tad pissed at myself for not saying NO. I have been saying NO to myself more than others and I've reached a breaking point.

I got to update all my social networking sites, finally! I now am a twatter (twitter)! Hurray peer pressure. I facebook and myspace as well. Tweet, twat, twit me: @RemyDrawStuff.

Had a massive overhaul on my health over the last 6 months and officially hate my job. I want a career. That's final. I want a career at a studio who will pay me for my art, and has a great team that I work well with. That's my goal.

Time to go get it.

Over and out.

P.S. I have no idea why I drew so much Aang/ Avatar; The Last Airbender, probably cause I watched all three seasons again. I love that show. It has the most amount of teachings I grew up with in one cartoon show. Thank you Nickelodeon for airing this awesome show and having it wrap up with a fantastic finale. Hopefully I can say thanks to M. Night for directing the movie if all goes smoothly.
