Name change

Journal Entry: Thu May 17, 2012, 9:23 AM
So, as I had previously feared, I grew weary of "Got Bob" as my name. I mean, I'm referencing an old milk ad campaign, that is not yet old enough to make it a classic reference. But I had no interest in making yet another account. Lo and behold, DA finally gave us the option.

Now, I'm still pissed you can't take names from inactive or deactivated accounts. C'mon! So many cool names I looked at were taken, but unused.

Let's see if "Art of Bob" will keep me happy, or if I'll be changing it again in six months.

Oh, and now I got to make a new design for my website cards to give out at Animazement, which is next week. <monotone>Oh joy. I am so excited, I could jump up and down.</monotone>

Let me know what you think of the new name.

Hey look, a journal update about stuff

Journal Entry: Thu Apr 5, 2012, 4:29 AM
Howdy, DA peoples. How's that Updoc working for you?

"What's up, doc?" you then say.

I reply, "Not much, doc, what's up with you?"

And we all laugh.


From that, I segue into a journal entry telling you what I've been up to, and why my updates are sporadic.

1) I've actually been taking night classes. Some continuing education type stuff. Being laid off last summer led to some big changes in my goals for the future. Basically, this means 9+ hours a week of school, plus all the other hours for homework, projects, studying. I forgot how much I hate that sort of crap. It also takes away from my art times.

2) I've been working graveyard shift at Target, backroom stock. There are reasons for this choice of employment that I won't bore you with. I only bring this up to reveal the main reason my arts are scarce. I'm tired. Like, all the damn time. Exhausted tired. Even when I have free time, the simple concept of drawing seems like this exhausting task, and it often is.

3) Frankly, I'm sort of just burned out by art in general. I have ideas, but most of them suck or require way more time/effort than I can manage. Mostly, I just want to up my personal skills. Try to achieve something fresh with my crap. So far, not much luck there. And, yeah, most are unrealistic art ideas. "Out of my league" of talent, so to speak.

4) I've also been burned out by digital art. So I've diddled with traditional again (Microns and such). It's nice, though I miss my "ctrl+z" type commands.


So, um, the other thing is I'm trying to actually post to my Twitter account. Yes, I have one of those. I don't even remember why I got one, I think I had the plan to post idiot thoughts to create some black hole of Bobish brains. Now, I'm sort of thinking I can do random updates on my life, for those few people who never hear from me and are curious what I'm doing. Or, something.
I linked it on my main page here, but you can also find the twitterings here: twitter.com/#!/justabobguy
Judge me if you want, I really don't mind.

Oh, and, damn, less than two months to AZ. Maybe I should do something to prepare for that?

the state of Bob's mind

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 3, 2012, 5:37 AM
I give very little shit about the following:

That thing I've been doing for 9 years now.
That other thing I've been doing for about 9 years now.
That thing I started last year.
That alphabetical project I started last month.
Trying to do that particular social thing people do.
That hobby that comes in the mail
That 24 year distraction
That thing on Friday.
Those things over there that you love



I do give a shit about:

That thing that starts tomorrow.
That thing I do when I can, for however many hours I can get.
That guy, that girl, and those schmucks that I seem to like

Hello.

You'll notice I've been using some (awesome) sketchy PS brushes a lot lately. There's a reason why (in bold for emphasis):

They make art fun again.

Lately, clean line art (my "specialty") had become anti-fun. It had become stressful and mentally draining. To the point that art blocks turned into "I never want to do art again" blocks. But, these sketchy brushes allow me to still draw Bobish art, without having to stress over every single effing stroke. You gotta understand, when I draw just one line of just one arm, that line is actually about 4-10 smaller lines. Meticulously drawn to look clean and complete. Often times, my overly perfectionist mind makes me draw each of those mini lines 2-3 times each. Because the first two tries contain minor errors. Perfectionism sucks. It's my curse.

The blobby, sketchy, imperfect lines force me to be... well, not perfect. I've actually been having fun drawing lately. Darth-3PO fav.me/d4dsyj7 may not be my most popular piece ever, and certainly isn't the best work I've ever done. But damn if it wasn't fun working on it. I enjoyed every single moment of it.

Side note : I'm not saying my art is perfect. I know it's not. Just, that I have a tendency to over-think each little stroke I make.

Long story short, I hope you enjoy the sketchy Bob art, because I have hundreds of sketches from the past five years waiting for inks/colors, and the sketchy makes it seem almost possible to achieve that goal. For now, it's fun, so it's here to stay.

Look at it this way, if you're not a huge fan of the sketchy, you can either have sketchy art or very rare updates.

-Bob

Time for info stuffs:

1) Wanted a new journal skin. I've used the same one for a billion years now, and it was time for a change. So, I went looking for one on here, and on the very first page, I find this one! TOTORO! Please go tell ShinyCation she's awesome.

2) My stupid llama art was posted by another deviant. And they are selling prints. I've asked that they remove it and also contacted the mods. As long as it gets removed without incident I'll let it go. But if it doesn't go smoothly, or if he gives me a hard time about it, I will be linking to the artist so that I can have all of you flame him. And I'll report him to all sorts of art theft pages, and so on and so on. I briefly thought it might have been someone I gave permission to post it ELSEWHERE and give credit. I did do that a couple times (people who wanted it on Facebook or something). I certainly never gave permission to post it here, take credit for the art, and try to profit off of me. I hope no one bought that crap, especially since the print would be a crappy jpeg, not the original Photoshop files, which only I have.

3) So, I finished moving into my new home last night. Weeks of insanity, almost over (still gotta unpack and organize). This is a big part of why I haven't been updating art. Soon, I promise, soon there will be updates of all kinds (old art, sketches, new digi art, and something else).

4) Um... I've been playing LEGO Star Wars like crazy lately. I've had it since last Christmas, but my video gaming comes and goes. Well, it's here now, and I'm loving it. It has two of my top loves, Star Wars and LEGO. And, it's just damn fun. Expect some future SW art, since I've got the whole Jedi bug right now

That is all, for now.

What\'s come over me?

Journal Entry: Wed Jun 29, 2011, 3:02 PM
Epilepsy!

Howdy folks. That Bob Guy here.

Do you know how I got the "Bob Guy" name? Years and years ago, when I was at a party with some of my college friends, I met a friend of a friend. When I introduced myself, the guy said "oh, so you're that Bob guy I keep hearing about." Thus, was born one of my screen names, ThatBobGuy... which later just became, Bob Guy.

Anyways, back to why I am making this journal. I just wanted to say that I've been quite distracted the past two weeks, so my replies to comments has been, well, dismally slow and pathetic. I am trying to get back to it all, but until then I just want to say, "thanks for all the kind words and for the favorites." I have been trying to really reinvigorate my creativity. Right now I'm still struggling, and I've really been wanting to try some new stuff but just haven't found the right thing yet. So, until then, you get the little 30-50 minute doodles I've been posting. Sorry.

Well, how is everyone else doing?

-Bob Guy

Post AZ 2011 wrap up

Journal Entry: Wed Jun 1, 2011, 1:09 PM
So tired...

It's been over for three days, and I'm still exhausted. I walk/jogged/ran up the stairs dozens of times. Most nights I got 6 or less hours of sleep, and even that sleep was crap.

So, I kept it fairly secret, but by now most people know that I was a part of staff this year. This of course came with it's share of headaches. Balcony had terrible traffic on Friday, and questionable traffic on Sat/Sun. (I say questionable because a few artists said it never picked up for them while others said it went well for them, or somewhere in between). Mezzanine also had questionable traffic. Sure, there was lots of people, but from my time spent talking to artists down there, many of them weren't happy with sales. The problem with all of this is trying to accurately compare all the data. Obviously, some artists will always sell better than others, and poor sales could be due to a number of factors, location being only one. Etc etc. I do know I sold poorly, but I also know I was away from my table half the time on Fri/Sat and on Sun I was solely trying to give away the inventory I didn't want to keep. Whatevers. It was chaos all around.

As for general problems, my list:
1) Dumbasses throwing a nerf football in the Mezzanine. I wish I had seen it or known, I would have called security to escort them away.
2) Sarah was spat on from above, as well as having stuff thrown elsewhere. Never caught the spitter but we got the thrower. Dumbasses.
3) To the idiots on the elevator hitting every button and dancing: yelling at you was the highlight of my Sunday.
4) To the idiots yelling "Marco" "Polo": I hate you.
5) To that one girl who shall remain unnamed: screw you for all the crap I dealt with from you. And, be glad I didn't directly overhear what you said on Saturday, for I would have rained hell upon your life. You took a situation you knew nothing about and made it worse for me. And I loathe you for it.
6) To those that are just simply ungrateful for the amount of time, sanity, and patience that goes into what we do: life isn't fair. Get over it.
7) To the kid who knocked on our hotel room door at 2:50am: dammit all to hell.
8) To the douchebag who stole my Castiel sketchcard: I hope it gives you paper cuts under you fingernails. If you actually paid for it and I just forgot or wasn't there when it happened, then I wish no harm upon your fingers.
9) To the douchebags that stole from other artists I talked to: see above statement, the same hell awaits you.
10) Oh, and to the douchebags throwing a nerf football in the alley: *sigh* really? Be glad I didn't see it. Your football would have been mine and your ass woulda been booted out

The nice list:
1a) To my friends (who I will list below): thank you for all of your help. As chaotic as my weekend was, it would have been worse without y'all.
1b) I'm sad I didn't get time to hang out with all of you.
1c) Dusty, Leech, Myque and Christina (sorry if I misspelled any of your names), you all rocked hard core. Thanks for all the help.
2) To those that do not fall into Number 6 above, and actually appreciates our efforts: thank you.
3) To the rest of the staff that do this every year, and who run the con as best they can: thank you as well.
4) To all the cool people I met, be it staff, artist, or con goer: you rock.
5) To anyone who found one of my ninja's placed around the con: hope it gave you a smile. I plan to do that again next year.

Finally, the list of cool people I worked with, talked with, or whatever. I will add to this as I think of names, so if you're missing forgive me.

Well, there are 22 days until Animazement. For those of you selling art, that's 22 days left to pump out the arts, yo. So get crackin'.

That said, I, myself, have not been drawing. Not art block, just art apathy. I have ideas, lots of ideas. I just don't care enough to draw them right now.

So, how is everyone? How's life?

Animazement, DUH, and unicorns

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 1, 2011, 12:58 PM
Actually, no unicorns here
Well, there are 55 days until Animazement. For those of you selling art, that's 55 days left to pump out the arts, yo. So get crackin'.

The past few week has been a blur of Animazement, terrible sleep, work, and sickness; culminating in an exhausted and grumpy Bob. This is me complaining.

So, DUH has been very sporadic and slow to update, hasn't it? See above sentence for the reason. Really. It's not dead, it's only on a sorta hiatus. As in, I'll update WHEN I can. This might be once every three weeks for the next two months. I don't know. But I promise you, it's still alive and kicking, only if in my head and my sketch pads.

Also, aiding in the sluggishness of DUH updates is my recent interest in drawing fan arts. Now, I've talked to many artists in my life, and I see a lot of varying views on "what is art". Some artists argue that original art is better than fan art, as it's more pure. Fan artists argue whatever it is they argue, including "there's nothing original left" or "Sailor Moon ROCKS!" Some "elite artists" claim anything cartoony isn't art so no matter what I choose, original or fan art, it doesn't matter. Whatever your stance is on this subject, rock on. My stance? Draw what makes you happiest. For me, that changes with my mood. At times, original work (DUH) is what makes me happy, and I focus on it fully. Other times (now), I really just feel happy drawing characters I know and love from my various fandoms. Or I might just want to draw a unicorn barbarian with an axe (okay, so there are unicorns in this journal afterall).

In the words of VNV Nation: "Just do whatever the hell you want to do, because who gives a damn what your friends think? Why waste your time obeying the opinions of others?"

Animazement Artist Alley Registration

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 11, 2011, 9:57 AM
is now up
Hello all, this is a friendly notification that the registration for Animazement's artist alley is now up. A few notes of interest:

:bulletblue: It is no longer first come first serve, instead try to make sure your application is as accurate and useful as possible. The applications will be accepted until March 1st, so that gives you 17 some days to fill it out.
:bulletblue: We no longer have the ballroom, which is sad but just how it is. A portion of those tables will move to a new hallway. The prices have also gone up, to handle demand and rising costs of renting space at the convention center.

Now, go register!

My first DUH contest - 3 more hours!

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 20, 2011, 6:00 PM
with Bob art for prizes
UPDATE: Actually, it will be more like 18 more hours... Okay, the deadline is midnight, three hours from now. But, I will likely be asleep within an hour (Bob is very tired) so honestly, I really won't put up the "voting journal" until sometime tomorrow. I'm pretty sure we have most of the entries, minus one from Taylor who is having trouble scanning it, so I don't expect any more entires. BUT, we'll just see, I suppose. Anyhoo, voting will be up at some point tomorrow. Prepare yourself for the excitement, or whatever. The entries are all rockin', so it shall be quite a fun finale.

Details are as follows:

TEH DEADLINE: Jan 20, 2011, at midnight EST

TEH RULES:
-Entries may be of any media. Digital, traditional, photomanip, whatevs. No poetry or fan fic. But haiku is acceptable, bonus points if it's in Japanese.
-Each contestant may submit one piece to the contest. Although if they want to make more for fun, that's cool.
-The only requirement of subject matter is that it must feature a character/ship from my comic DUH. Reference can be found here: gotbob.deviantart.com/art/DUH-… gotbob.deviantart.com/gallery/… gotbob.deviantart.com/gallery/…
-As I currently lack higher quality reference material, accuracy is not uber-important.
-Characters do not need to be created in my style, in fact I specifically am looking forward to seeing my characters in new styles.
-The winners will be decided by public vote (and my own personal votes as well, which are worth more points, bwahaha)

TEH PRIZES:
First place - an 8 1/2"x11" color drawing of any character of your choice (in my usual stumpy chibi form), and a cameo in a future DUH strip
Second place - an 8 1/2"x11" black and white drawing of any character of your choice (in my usual stumpy chibi form), and a cameo in a future DUH strip
Third place - a doodle and a cameo in a future DUH strip

All other contestants will recieve a randomly chosen complimentary prize of my choosing. Bwahahaha.

the Downsizer comic

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 7, 2011, 9:03 PM
because Bob can't make understandable polls
So, it occurs to me I'm not always able to properly convey what is going on in my mind. Take for instance my recent poll, "Should I make a spinoff comic just for the Downsizer?" gotbob.deviantart.com/journal/…

I assumed I'd get an overwhelming response of "YES!" but that wasn't the case, and it is my own fault, as I did a horrible job of explaining what I had in mind. I think what got most people confused is that the "yes" answer also said "his stories do not fit well in DUH", which most people assumed meant I would remove him entirely from DUH, possibly even the "DUH universe". Don't worry, this is not the case at all. Think of it like other comics, like when Wolverine or Gambit got their own solo title. They were still very much a part of X-Men, but they had their own comic to run free in.

(In case it isn't yet obvious, moments after posting the poll I knew I was going to make the spin off, regardless of the response)

Here's my plan. DUH will continue to update Monday and Friday, and schedule/time willing, Downsizer will update on Wednesdays. So, this firstly means we will go from seeing Downsizer three times in almost five months (his current rate of appearance) to weekly (again, time willing). I keep mentioning time willing, I might miss a week here and there, but even twice a month is better than three times in five months, right?

And, Downsizer will still appear in the panels of DUH, usually when it in some way pivotal to the rest of the cast. And a lot of the cast will appear in Downsizer, giving more jokes of Blix and Maria and so on. And, sometimes story lines will start in one comic and jump to the other, jokes will appear in one comic that reference the other, and so on. The Downsizer comic will very much contribute to the universe of DUH.

So, I hope with this proper explaining of my intentions will serve to clear up any confusion, and hopefully recieve the response I was shooting for, that of excitement. Or at least "okie dokie, I can handle that." And look out for the debut of this... in a few weeks, when I get my butt caught up on art projects.

DUH now has a fan club, it seems

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 20, 2010, 8:19 PM
And I'm not allowed to join
So, my good friend Taylor has been bitten by the DUH bug (which has results similar to being bitten by a rabid raccoon), and went and made a DUH DA group page:

duhfan-club.deviantart.com/

Currently the "join group" option is not available, I'll see what's going on there.

Anyhoo, just thought I'd show this off. It's my first official "fan club" for something, so it's pretty cool.

DUH now has a real comic page

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 22, 2010, 9:32 AM
It's amazing, I know.
This is kind of a minor deal, but kind of a big deal for me. My orignal comic, Daily Universal Humdrum, is now being hosted on Smack Jeeves as well as DA:

duhcom.smackjeeves.com/

This isn't a big deal for any of you, as you get the comic delivered to your message box. But it's a big deal for me because I like having actual comic navigation and it allows non DA members to read it more easily. Although, with the help of being able to preload my comics days in advance of when I plan to post it (secret, I have three more comics completed that haven't been posted yet), it's definite the SmackJeeves site will get the new comic before DA does by a few hours. OH MY! Amazing, I know.

I'm still working on the site, as it's not really how I want it to look just yet. I want graphical buttons for the first, back, next, and latest navigation. I also want to alter the menu layout, add a cast page, a FAQ page, etc etc etc.

So, for those of you interested in this project of mine, you have more options for getting your DUH fix, for those not interested, this journal will be of no interest to you.

wanna see me zombified?

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 6, 2010, 9:03 AM
You do? That's kind of messed up!
My buddy Rob drew me (as well as himself and another friend) as zombies, for halloween:
fav.me/d306qdb <--CLICK IT!!
Totally awesome. He randomly snapped the pic on his phone at work the other day, he runs over to my cube and goes "make a zombie face!" So I did. And this is the result.

So, speaking of zombies, some of you might have noticed I've been drawing a bunch of zombie work lately. There are three reasons for this. 1) It's getting closer to Halloween, and this time of the year seems to bring the zombie love out of me. 2) I've been playing wayyyyy too much Dead Rising, and smashing zombies is making me happy. 3) This is actually kind of common for me. I tend to go through waves with my zombie love. I mean, I always love zombie crap, but I'll go months with no real effort to indulge in zombieness. Then I'll see something that reignites the zombie flame, and for the next few days, weeks, or months I'll be obsessed with the culture. About a year ago, it came in the form of buying zombie toys and zombifying my existing art. (Sometime I need to take a photo of my zombie shelf, with the toys). Anyhoo, I guess my point is, if you don't like the zombie art, I'm sorry, but expect more to come. If you do love the zombie art, get excited that more is coming, but don't get sad if I suddenly lose interest in it or get burned out.

That's all I have to say for now.

No, wait, one more thing...

5k and a chance to win a doodle

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 15, 2010, 6:58 AM
One billion PV's here I come!
I see that I just hit 5000 pageviews. I couldn't have done it without all of you. Well, I could have, but it would have been slow and required a lot of refreshing, and multiple accounts and so on and so forth.

So, instead of my usual "Thanks for 5000" drawings, I will instead draw a little bit of doodly gift art for three of you. In the past I've done "the first to post here", but that's unfair for people because some people won't even see this journal until later. So, here's how it will work: I'm thinking of a number between 1 and 5000. The three people that guess the closest to the number by Saturday 9:37pm (EST), will win a doodle.

UPDATE: Deadline extended one day and some mishmash of hours and minutes, because I feels like it. I wanted to give a little more time for people to guess.

So, post your number guess, and what you want drawn if you win. And I'll reveal the winners this Friday.

Not that this is some stellar reward or anything, but just a little something to say thanks! Happy guessing!

-Bob Guy
