The Man Behind the Man

Some people post pics of their family/loved ones, some post pics of their (eek!) pets. We do it differently here at AmazingSensation Studios. We post pics only if they include ourselves – because we’re THAT arrogant. Behind me is Don Alejandro, my personal bodyguard. This still was taken as my $19.99 digital camera/webcam did its thing.

Marketing is really a blast. No other “corporate” profession gives someone the ability to use their creative noggins to the utmost to make money for the big man. And when I say big man, I really mean big man.

Department of Transportation

Every hero needs a cool ride. Superman has his ability of flight, Spiderman has his web-slinging, and Batman has the Batmobile. Imagine being caught in the middle of Times Square freezing in your tights and having to catch the bus to get the bad guy – not going to work very efficiently!

This is a final rendering of Johnny Justice’s SUPERBIKE. It is unlike his other bike (which has joysticks replacing the handlebars) in that he is able to sit in it similar to a car, and it has mega-horsepower to boot. It is a two-wheeled vehicle and the tires are a sort of hybrid off-road/street tire (you never know if the action may take you off the pavement!). The controls are similar to a sport bike, but instead of leaning over them, the handlebars are positioned directly in front of him like a steering wheel. The glass is a low-light intensity polycarbonate lens that enhances visibility at night. The glass was rendered in photoshop. The wheels are beadlock rims that are found on extreme off-road vehicles that enable him to drop the psi in the tire and not worry about it coming off the rim (each bolt around the rim is actually going into the tire) at higher speeds or dangerous situations.

Fanboy (part II)

Pic of me with Jim Lee taken by my wife at WizardWorld Texas last November (what happened to my hair?). Great convention – kind of low key (until they called for another opportunity for a Jim Lee signing on Saturday). The mob, I mean crowd, went nuts. Sadly, I couldn’t get a sketch, but getting to shake Jim’s hand and see him in person was better than any piece of artwork IMO.

He'll Make You Believe a Man Can Fly

The latest on the next Superman Movie.

For those interested, here is a little something to add that extra bling to the old pc with. It's at 1280 pixels, so keep that in mind when doing the whole right-click thing.

I'll leave you with a quote: "Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep."
