Approximately 69.9% done with first female mannequin.
Continuing to build up my turtle tee collection.
Finished commissioned-art-surprise-gift for my friend’s friend.
Experimenting with ways to photograph turtle tees.
Got an upcoming group art show in May. I’ll be preparing for that soon. GO TURTLE!

I went to a women’s boxing press conference for the very first time.
Ana Julaton is the first Filipino-American boxer to win the Women’s WBO Super Bantamweight and IBA Super Bantamweight titles. Nicknamed “The Hurricane,” she is also one of the “quickest” boxers ever to win a world title, having fought only five other professional bouts before winning the IBA Super Bantamweight title.
Go Ana The Hurricane Julaton! Go Turtle!
I got to play photographer during the press conference…so much fun.
The people joining me in playing “press conference photographer”.
Liquid Nitro & Vodka…Real Energy…Real Alcohol…NO BULL!

is moving on along…towards the back. As I stood back and looked at how the drawing is growing…I was like…hmmmm….this might actually turn out pretty goooood. Up until this point..which is like 4-6 hours into it…I couldn’t picture how a fully doodled on sexy women mannequin would look like. But now I can!
Thanks again to Henry from Liquid Nitro for thee mannequins and support!
TURTLE NITRO! NO BULL!

I’ve been using a 7.1 mega pixel compact digital camera to take pictures of stuff…until now. Behold ladybugs and turtles…Turtle Digital SLR! My bro-in-law hooked me up with his old camera (Thanks Louie!), and now I can take some quality photos baby.

I think what I just made is called “fan art”…dang I should of drew in some fans. If you scroll down you can see in reverse my steps that led to the drawing/doodle of the lovely musician Kina Grannis.

…not the phone android…but like a robot/android…that happens to be female…and have a very nice body…but no arms, legs, or head.
This is my first time drawing/doodling on a mannequin. This is many times bigger and has more curves than the blank vinyl toys that I have drawn on in the past. Also I never drew on what technically represents breasts, butt, and private area of a women. At times I’m so focused on drawing something that I don’t even know if I was drawing on a specific area of the body.
It’s just a blank canvas anyways…that happens to be in the shape of a female…that has a very nice body…but no arms, legs, or head.

Henry from Liquid Nitro had quite an idea the other day. He saw a clothing store closing and they were selling their mannequins. Henry thought I could draw all over them. Have some for possible Liquid Nitro promotion art and some that I could do for galleries or my own.
So begins my Mannequins x Liquid Nitro x Turtle Wayne adventure.
There were a lot of mannequins for sale. We tried to select the ones in the best condition. How many mannequins can you fit into a Honda Civic?
We fitted 8 mannequins into a Honda Civic. If we got pulled over by a cop…that would of been interesting.
I told my dad about my mannequin mayhem and he got to work on creating a painting booth in the backyard where I could spray paint the mannequins. My dad’s awesome.
I realized how strange my life has become when it started to hail on me as I spray painted a male mannequin in the rain.
I went with a silver metallic paint to mimic the Liquid Nitro energy drink’s can. It kinda looks like a prop for some Sliver Surfer movie.
My fridge in my studio is now fully stocked with Liquid Nitro…REAL ENERGY…NO BULL!

My friend Zoneil is the editor for Union City Patch.
I met this elderly lady while exchanging my drink ticket for a Corona. I then proceeded to tell my life’s story to a cute Asian girl who’s 15 years younger than me…while we ate FREE food at Mexico Lindo.
I donated some Turtle Wayne kids tees for the raffle…but the Patch powers that be ended up forgetting about it…so I ended up giving some to some new people I met and selling one.
At the end of the party, I met one of the owners of an energy drink called Liquid Nitro. I tried a can and it got me pretty amped up. I talked about illustrating something crazy featuring the Liquid Nitro energy drink. Turtle Nitro!

Only recently have I got around to putting up a Turtle Wayne decal at the entrance to my office/studio. I like being unknown…but the place has grown…to be like my third home.
This is me…in my studio…taking a photo after I got a new haircut.
The following is a close-up of one of my studio’s wall. It is a wall graphic that you can peel off and put back on…and also draw on…as I have demonstrated…ha ha (walls360.com).
