What happened to Keon Clark?

I handled the cover art for the current issue of the Las Vegas Weekly. The main article is about the troubled career of former NBA player Keon Clark.



Here's the team that Lucy Knisley, Alisa O, and I came up with for FACA 4; THE LADYFINGERS. Respectively, we were "Milly," "Lilly," and "The Dowager Killstress." We may've been destroyed by a bunch of stick figures, but we went down swinging our scary fists! Thanks for the violent memories, ladies.

True to herself.

Here's a Wonder Woman redesign for Project Rooftop's Wonder Woman Wardrobe War! It's a mixed media work and there's everything from acrylic, wood, pen, ink, and encaustic to Photoshop work thrown in there.


For Justice!

Another new picture over at my LJ. I have really got to get coding, my poor website is probably starting to feel kind of neglected!



So as I was mincing gracefully through the living room looking for a place to surreptitiously ditch my lukewarm coffee, who should I catch gazing up at me with big squishy love-love eyes but this wee fella?!

He melted Supahman's little plastic heart, he did! Pikapika.

Welcome back, television.

The Smallville season premiere was a rollicking roller coaster. My favorite part? Bizarro Clark's Bizarro face.

Like most other people who have bothered to think on such things, I always just assumed that Bizarro's skin was made of oogie-boogie yuck-gunk. But I liked the phasing metallic effect employed by these, the translators, interpreters, and technology-tellers of our modern mythology. It really said, "We have thought about how the polar opposite of Clark Kent, the symbol of some collective America's deepest hopes and fears for itself, would manifest physically and psychologically in the latter half of this century's dawning decade, and we have concluded that The Terminator was cool."
It's been years since I tried drawing anything directly into Photoshop, and sure enough, this was a pain. Yet weirdly fun!



So. Fist-a-cuffs; the fightiest of all art fights to ever smash the Internet to design-conscious pieces. I plan on participating in this round, but I can't do it alone! I need to find two (2) art friends willing to ally themselves with me as either a fighter or manager for fame, sportsmanship, and GLORY.

If anybody out there's interested in teaming up, please leave a comment or contact me through e-mail, mingdoyle (at) gmail.com. I am even offering examples of my work for decision-making purposes at no extra cost!

The scrappin' times, they are nigh.


Graffiti is a crime.

Facebook's graffiti wall is quite diverting. It reminds me of my mid-teenage years, when I used to prowl the Internet looking for sleazy oekaki joints to bust up with my mad art skillz and faux anime interpretations of movie stars. These days I am more into adorning the obvious;

and knitting;
The second drawing was inspired by this talented lady's Wonder Woman Jumper. Thank you, the Internet, for bringing such important things to my attention. Now, to build on a theme by indulging in The Non-Adventures of Wonderella!


Hello friends.

My name is Ming. I have a website and a MySpace, both of which make this blog doubly redundant, and yet. Here are some superheroes and science-villains from my LJ in lieu of more informative written content. The proliferation of online presences probably speak for themselves!
