I haven't read a lot of the published comic books of this guy. But I did watch the tv series when I was a kid. So, a little introduction to the folks who don't know who this guy is.

The Adventures of Tintin (Les Aventures de Tintin) is a series of classic comic books created by the French-Belgian artist Georges Rémi (1907–1983), who wrote under the pen name of Hergé. The series is one of the most popular European comics of the 20th century, with translations published in more than 80 languages and more than 350 million copies of the books sold to date. Its popularity around the world has been attributed to its "universal appeal" and its ability to transcend "time, language and culture."

Tintin is a young reporter, and Hergé uses this to present the character in a number of adventures which were contemporary with the period in which he was working, most notably, the Bolshevik uprising in Russia and World War II, and sometimes even prescient, as in the case of the moon landings.

I got that from Wikipedia, for more info on Tintin just read it here

Now that we're done with introductions, so here's my take on Tintin for our artjam this week. Yea I know that there are a lot of things wrong here, especially the running pose that is basically out of whack, but hey the important thing is the idea, right?
My idea for my Tintin is to mix the 60's spy era with Japan's giant robot era. Yea sorry for the crappy robot, but you folks get it, right? Plus throw in a funky soundtrack like Redline's Lynchman theme and you have a funky version of Tintin with giant robots and sci-fi gadgets.

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

So far..

Ber-months are in. That means only a quarter of the year left before I'll be needing a new calendar.
Judging from the artworks I produced over the course of nine months, I think its safe to say that this year produced some of my most uninspired works. Maybe it was the change of pace or the change in interests that brought this, but I think the focus is still there and the change in art style is a breathe of fresh air. Also the year is starting to get a little more interesting, particularly September brought a couple of awesome stuffs on the table that made the first six grueling months bearable, and judging from experience over the past few years I think its safe to say that something good always happens in September. So far, I'm seeing the results of the change in interests and influences. I'm currently preparing for something for the summer and I'm feeling particularly confident about it. I do hope that all goes well.

I made a tumblr account so I can have a site where I can post photos I found that I felt I like.
