Bibliography


I have been doing Martial arts my whole life. I personally have no specific style, but I have a 5th Dan in Shotokan Karate. I equally enjoy all interpretations of Karate-do. I also love training Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, Boxing, wrestling, and Muay Thai. While living in Japan, I also trained in Judo.

Here are some pictures from different publications with friends.

Blood Portrait

*Ring Ring (actual phone sounds)
Patrick: “Hey, bring your sword over here and some of that fake blood, I have an idea.”
Alan: “<3”

Patrick McPheron did his magic with the camera, he really is the best.  Just some character type things that may or may not be used in any future projects.  I really love these.  Fun with swords? Yes, please.  If I ever do finish writing these scripts, this character will most likely go to a Joseph Gordon-Levitt type, you know, a skinny not bald person.


Please Enjoy

In The Street

It's Spooky


Patrick McPheron made this beautiful yet eerie gem featuring our wonderful friend Jacquelyn Grissom.  It’s really spooky, child. I helped create the music, so I wanted to make a post about it so it can get more exposure! Oooh, Child. Alternatively, this could be a really great commercial for ‘Swans Down.’ (It’s on the ground near the end) Make up by was done by the talented Obi Martinez.

Please Enjoy,

Mike Tyson’s Princess Bride Remake

This is my favorite part of the new film, “Mike Tyson’s Princess Bride.” Where he plays every part of the classic 80’s film, The Princess Diaries starring Inigo Montoya Part II.

He's not in the film princess Bride
That’s really Mike Tyson.

Mike Tyson as Andre the Giant is a sight for sore eyes and is sure to bring a multitude of accolades from many Bosnian film critics.

Street Fighter One

I’ve never seen this before! That’s probably because it only happens when Ryu loses to Ken (catch my drift?)

Ryu - I wish you good luck


Even Ryu had some difficult moments to work through! OKAY? Ok.

Street Fighter One FTW. Don’t ever give up on your dreams.

#1 Forever

This is quite literally “The Best Photo on the Planet”

Made with love by Patrick McPheron. I cannot be any more honored to have a wonderful friend that is skilled with the photoshop and a quick-witted eye for righteousness.

You’re welcome

The Monkey King

I wanted to draw Sūn Wùkōng meditating, you know, the Monkey King.

Goku
You meditate on that cloud!

Just a regular mystical monkey born from a stone who acquires supernatural powers through certain philosophical practices. After rebelling against heaven, beating the crap out of everyone there and being imprisoned under a mountain, he later inspires Toriyama Sensei to make Dragon Ball Z. Son Goku, ever heard of him?

孫悟空
