UFC 124!! GSP vs Koscheck!!

Georges St. Pierre (No. 1 WW, No. 2 PFP) vs. Josh Koscheck (No. 5 WW) - Koscheck is the last guy to win a round against St. Pierre and I believe out of all the welterweights he has the best chance to win. If Kos can keep it standing he could land one of those big windmills he likes to throw and catch St. Pierre but I'm pretty sure this will look a lot like the St.Pierre/Alves fight and hopefully GSP comes out looking to hurt and finish Koscheck. I'm not a huge huge fan of St. Pierre but I do love watching great fighters fight and he is a specimen, but I also would be quite entertained if Koscheck KO'd him in Montreal. My pick, GSP by a dominant 5 round decision.

Thiago Alves (No. 3 WW) vs. John Howard - Howard is just not on the level of Alves. Thiago Alves is gonna pretty much beat up on any welterweight not named George St.Pierre or Jon Fitch. I would be super surprised if this is an upset. Alves by TKO, rd. 1.

Jim Miller vs. Charles Oliveira - this is gonna be a really solid close match. Both guys have solid Jiu Jitsu, decent striking, and both are tough dudes. Miller is always gonna be a solid match up but I don't really see him getting into the title picture, while the Brazilian has a more dynamic game and a ton of potential. This is a 'Fight of the Night' contender and it smells of split decision. I'm leaning Oliviera by decision.

Joe Stevenson vs. Mac Danzig - Danzig might just get his walking papers after this one. He's not super popular and the most memorable thing he's done is get a bad stoppage in his first fight with Matt Wiman. I think Stevenson will be too much and he'll run game all over Danzig and maybe even bust him open with an elbow. Stevenson by TKO, rd. 2.

Stefan Struve vs. Sean McCorkle - I don't know much about McCorkle other than he talks a lot of trash on MMA forums. These are 2 big dudes. I'll take Struve by submission, rd. 2.

Dan Miller vs. Joe Doerksen - Dan Miller is the better fighter here. Doerksen isn't really UFC quality anymore. The style match up here should make it a close fight with Miller getting the advantage. Miller by decision.

Ricardo Almeida vs. T.J. Grant - I think Grant is a sleeper in this one. Almeida is very inconsistent while T.J. Is always a game opponent. I'm taking the upset here, Grant by decision.

Dustin Hazelett vs. Mark Bocek - Bocek has the better all around game here but Hazelet is just gonna be much much bigger making his lightweight debut. Its eventually gonna hit the mat and Hazelet brings a better arsenal of submissions. I don't know that McLovin can finish Bocek but I think he can Jits his way to a controlling decision maybe locking up a body triangle with his long limbs. Hazelett by decision.
Matt Riddle vs. Sean Pierson - Riddle by TKO.

Jesse Bongfeldt vs. Rafael Natal - let's go Bongfeldt by sub.

John Makdessi vs. Pat Audinwood - not super familiar with either guy, so I'll take Pat 'Awesomely Awesome' Audinwood since he has an awesome nickname.

Mugshot Series - #1

So, I've started doing a series of drawings based on some mugshots of shoplifters. This is the first.

True Grit

I don't get excited for many films & I certainly don't like going to the theatres, so it is quite the occasion when I can't wait to go to a theatre on opening day to watch a movie.
True Grit is it.
You have no idea how excited I am to watch this.
I just finished the 1968 novel True Grit by Charles Portis & I'm gonna go watch the classic John Wayne version.
I think this movie is perfectly casted (Jeff Bridges as "Rooster" Cogburn, Matt Damon as
La Boeuf, Josh Brolin as the Coward Tom Chaney, Barry Pepper as "Lucky" Ned Pepper are perfect choices & this newcomer Hailee Steinfeld as Mattie Ross looks incredible).
I love the Coen Brothers.
No Country for Old Men is my favorite movie of all time & I think on Christmas Day 2010, it will become runner up to True Grit.

Watch and & tell me it's not super bad ass! I dare ya!

Unused Unfinished Piece

I was working on a big piece & the incentive to finish is no longer there for a variety of reasons. This piece was to include 3 characters. This is the unnamed villain character that IS complete. the other 2 characters were only half finished so I cropped them out. I liked how this guy turned out enough to post though.

Top Christmas Movies

It's Christmas season and I have decided to tell y'all my favorite XMAS movies and I expect you to watch them sometime before December 25th.

Is that too much to ask?

I wanted to make a Top 10 but there's too many good ones, so here's a Top 15.

I also invite you to let me know if you think my fav's are crap and/or what you your list is?

15) Trapped In Paradise - I doubt many remember this one but it's a fun little xmas pic. Dana Carvey is great as the klepto.
14) Shrek the Halls - I have 2 little brothers & I'm not gonna lie, I love Shrek & Donkey. Give it a watch.
13) Elf - Worth it for Will Ferrell's monster burp at the dinner table.
12) Jingle All the Way - I feel like Arnold is a very underrated comedic actor. Add in some Sinbad plus a little Phil Hartman & ya got a good christmas classic.
11) How the Grinch Stole Christmas - I haven't watched the new live action version but I doubt it tops the classic cartoon.
10) Chronicles of Narnia : The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe - I was a huge fan of the book when I was a kid (still am) & I really liked the old BBC version, but this 2005 version with Tilda Swinton as the White Witch is just wonderful. It's almost a perfect film & it's has just enough Christmas in it.
9) Trailer Park Boys : XMAS Special - Because Christmas isn't about goin' to church and gettin' presents, it's about gettin' drunk & high with your friends.
8) Ernest Saves Christmas - You know what? I like Ernest movies & this Christmas one is great. I said it!
7) It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia : Very Sunny Christmas - The best show on TV and this xmas special is an instant classic. You see Danny DeVito completely naked, what else do you need?
6) A Christmas Story - It's really not Christmas unless you watch Ralphie shoot his eye out with his BB gun. Fa-ra-ra-ra-ra!
5) Scrooged - An updated Dickens with Bill Murray & Bobcat. It's brilliant.
4) Planes, Trains & Automobiles - Technically, this is a Thanksgiving movie, but c'mon. I actually bought the new edition where they've packaged it in red & green to make it seem more Christmasish. A 'holiday classic' if you will.
3) Home Alone 2 - Almost as good as the first.
2) Home Alone - Oh Kevin McCallister, you crack me up. Look what ya did ya little jerk!
1) National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation - I will be watching this, literally, about 15-20 times before the 25th of December and then maybe twice on that day. The Griswold family Christmas is really just the best Christmas movie of all time. 'Merry Christmas, shitter was full!'

Bus Sketch : Batman

I did this one on a bus ride. Normally when I sketch on the bus I wait until it stops and start drawing but I decided this time to just keep drawing while the bus was bumping all over the place. It's rough.

Sketch Page

I did this in my sketch book. I don't know how to explain it other than I decided to just cover every inch of the page. I showed it from three angles cuz it's just a cluttered mess. I will probably do more of these types of pages. I also started thinking about how many lines I've drawn in my life. Probably in the millions but who the hell knows? I didn't think about it that much.
