For quite some time I have wanted to get some items for my shop. One item in particular would be some sort of lab coat. I look back to movies like Frankenstien for inpiration on this. I wish that it was easy to get your hands on a side button down lab coat with a collar. It would protect all of my clothes depending on which ridiculous project I was working on next. I've had things explode all over me, or at least spatter back at me. Unfortunately, it seems I can only find regular, mundane lab coats. I have to say, I'd even take one of those.
Look at this fancy fellow on the left. His tie is left wide open to be spattered. At least most of my clothes would be protected.
Then there are the matter of saftey. My eyes are important. Without them, I wouldn't be able to draw, paint, build odd objects or play video games. I have various types of eye protection, but I think I would really enjoy something a bit more outlandish like a pair of panser goggles. Or even the pairs pictured here.
It is no surprise that many of my friends refer to me at their friend, "Jay-the mad scientist." I enjoy that. Mainly because I can build my friends just about anything or fix something in my "lab." It's nice having so many tools at my disposal. I find that strange things like lab coats, goggles and numerous other items strewn about my work area helps me be more creative. If any of you out there know where I can find some interesting (and useful) gear at modest prices (after all, mad scientists hardly make a dime) please drop me a line.

am currently hip deep in some of my own projects as well as work that is not my own. I just wanted to post a little teaser of something that I'm working on with a friend. I have a really good friend who has helped me for the past nine years working all sorts of web related garbage I through at him, just because (I think) he likes to see what I will come up with next. I created this little masthead for the project and I should be unveiling the entire thing in the coming months. 2009 is going to be a busy and fruitful year for my artwork. Please stay tuned and I hope I won't disappoint the small niche group of fans I seem to have brainwashed.

It is high time I start to remodel my website and make it more obvious that I don't just paint robots. While my robots are incredibly popular, I also work in magazines, comics and film That's right, film. Over the next few weeks I will do my best to get this blog ship shape as well as research a simple way to create a gallery for you all to view my wide range of work. I am also in the process of investigating bringing back my long missed web series. Keep checking back or join my google group for up-to-date information.

As some of you may already know, I will be doing some production design for a feature film called "The Hog." Since this sketch was released by the director, on Facebook, I decided I will share it with you in order to drum up some interest in the film. I've been asked to work on a number of items through the film. This is a sketch of the logo that will be used on the college football hemets in the film. I'm pretty excited. I will keep the blog updated with any information that is available for release. Keep your eyes on the IMDB.com page for "The Hog." Matt Nastos seems to be keeping the public well informed about the production of this film. I am eager to see the finished product. It has been described to me as, "Porky's meets Jaws." Two movies that I loved as a kid, that I never thought I would see melded together.
