Nightmare Before Christmass

So I’ve been meaning to share this for a while now, but just kept failing to get around to it for some obtuse reason.  Commissioned by my dear friend Jim Farmer as an anniversary gift for his wife, my other dear friend, Audrey Farmer. I really like this picture and I’m super...

A Puppet At The Mouth

  It’s been to long since I’ve drawn and colorized.  I am now immensily satisfied by how it came out.  Where this character came from is an honest mystery to me.  It started at a junk sea character, but became something else entirely. What?  Who knows.  But I keep...

Milo The Mad God 1-30

“Milo is completely mad.  One day he snapped, rejecting reality and fleeing into the machinations of his own imagination.  Creating a fantasy world to inspire and distract him.  This is Milo the Mad God!”   And that was Milo 1-30.  Sorry It’s...

WHERE IS STIMSON!? Catalyst, S&A and more...

So some of you might have noticed that I dropped off the face of the world a few months back.  Or maybe you didn’t because you don’t care, in which case SAME TO YOU!  Anyway, I’m long overdue for a few updates to the friends, family and colleagues who aren’t within direct...

Milo The Mad God!

For sometime now, I have been eager to a 100day project.  I’ve always felt that I draw way to slowly and the best way to correct the problem would be to force myself to draw a simple comic every day.  This is not one of those comics, but it is my first effort at the character...

“Gasman” Scene

This is another sample scene from a film I’d like to do done in comic book form.  This one also features the Gasman, from another...

A reminder

  An important reminder from a character I haven’t drawn in far to long.  Sometimes characters talk to me like this.  I clearly have some...

“Treat Street” Scene

  Sometimes I like to plan out film scenes in comic book format.  Is there a good reason for this?  Nope.  Not even remotly, I just enjoyinh drawing comics and planning films.  These days every movie used to be a comic so why not just ditch storyboarding and do a comic book...

Agony

Concept art for the villainess in my in-pre-production short film, “Treat Street”.   Agony is actually a teenage girl named Agatha Thelma-Luise Penderghast, who on Halloween is throwing off her goody two-shoes chrust to become the wicked candy stealing terror of...

The Mule

Bleeding Ink #10

Bleeding Ink #9

Now let’s be perfectly clear here. Just becuase one of my previous jobs this year WAS as a counseler for suicidal-drug-addled-teens, DOESN’T mean that there is any truth in this comic what-so-ever.  Assume nothing! -S.S.   (I just realized how potentially offensive my...

It’s “Z” End

  In honor of the holiday season, lets do Zombies! Last weekend I went camping.  While roughing it, I shot this little zombie movie.  It stars me as the human, me as the main zombie, me as the horde of zombies and the entire crew was comprised of me.  So basicially, I’m...

Bleeding Ink #8

Well I’ve finally created my own font for this thing, so at least the lettering will start to be consistant at long last. So did everyone catch Guardians of the Galaxy?  Becuase I friggen loved that...

ROTKA on “Ain’t it Cool News”

So have you ever heard of this little website called “Ain’t it Cool News”?  Damn right you have, they’re huge. Well on the websites weekly column, “Saturday Shorts”, they’ve written up and featured my 2013 film “ROTKA: RISE OF THE KITCHEN...

Bleeding Ink 7

Bleeding Ink marches bravely on with jokes that are in no way a reflection on the Artists state of mind.  No, this comic isn’t a cry for help.  Why do you...

Bleeding Ink 6

Guy Smiley is a creature that haunts my nightmares, he is also somewhat inspired by a character in a Sandman Story. Oh and here’s a bit more food for thought, can you guess what the blue haired chick is saying?  Google it if...

Bleeding Ink 5

I feel like pointing out a few fun factoid. The character of Horas has a cat.  The cat is named Mr. Mushnik after my best friend Alex’s recently deceased cat, Butch.  You might be thinking that this doesn’t logically follow, but if you moved inside my mind you’d...

Bleeding Ink 4

In this one I tried writing the words in my own hand, rather than use a font. I promise to never do it...

Bleeding Ink 3

Alright, I’m gonna make a bad artist confession.  At this point in the comic I hadn’t really decided what Horas Flowerchild looked like, which is why her face design slightly changes from panel to panel in this...

Bleeding Ink 2

And now the story begins.  Yes, this comic will have a story.  Sort of.  I promise...

Bleeding Ink 1

Original Bleeding Ink

  One not-very-special day, a stunningly handsome man falls to his knees, casts his fist up in the air and releases a creative roar.  That man is Stimson Snead and that roar was Bleeding Ink.  A college newspaper comic that lasted only breifly before being yanked do to content...
