New York Comicon/Pimpjooze 4

Yes, it is that time once again. The New York Comicon is upon us. Three gloriously days of comics, cartoons, sci-fi, and all around nerd-dom in the greatest city in the world. I'll be there of course, sharing a small press setup 2255 with my boy Brad Silverman. In the programming brochure it'll probably say "KaNO & Khary Randolph", but KaNO will be sitting with myplasticheart (*I think*) promoting some of his new toys and whatnot. Swing by, I'll have original art, artbooks, prints, watches, toys, and more.

Oh, and of course I'll be unveiling the newest installment in the Pimpjooze series of sketchbooks. Been a few years since the last one and there's all types of goodies in this one that no one's ever seen before. 48 pages of dopeness, color cover, b&w insides, holla atcha boy. The print run on this will be limited, so make sure you cop them quickly. Whatever I have left over I will be selling on the kharupt.com store.

See you there!

Kharupt.com 6.0 is LIVE

That's right, ladies and gentlemen. Stop whatever you are doing RIGHT NOW and go to Kharupt.com. Because it is new and improved and better than ever. Completely overhauled, leaner and meaner. New art, new design, new music. I've wanted to do this for a while now as I felt the old design, while I like it, was starting to feel very old and cumbersome. This new one is both more functional and I feel, more professional. I omitted some things that I know some people really liked, like the sketches page and the links page, but since both of those things can be found on the blog I felt having them on the main site was redundant and pulled the focus away from what was most important, which is the body of work itself.

And as a gift to those of you who have stuck with me over the years, here is a mixtape I put together of ALL the songs that have graced this website since it's inception in 2000. Twenty tracks from some of my favorite artists. If you are a fan of these guys, go out and buy their albums because you have my personal guarantee you will get some serious dopeness.

Yes, 9 long years of Kharupt.com and it's only getting better. I am so focused, you have no idea. Let's get it.

Long Live Galvatron

Aight, so here's the deal. I'm a HUGE Transformers fan. Always have been, since I was a wee child of the 80's. I cried when Optimus Prime died. It's like that. But somehow, I have never, ever, ever drawn a Transformer in my life. Never even crossed my mind. Crazy, right? Well, now I know why. BECAUSE THEY'RE A $#%^ING PAIN IN THE ASS TO DRAW. This sketch was an ordeal lemme tell you, and I can pretty much guarantee I won't be drawing any more Transformers anytime soon. I got the Transformers Generation 1 Complete Box Set for Christmas, so best believe I have been in Decepticon heaven over here. I've been into it so much I just had an itch to draw one of these guys, and Galvatron was always one of my favorites. The scene in the movie where he takes out Starscream at the coronation. . . . . .awww man. Doesn't get any better than that.

Anyways, enjoy this, cuz you probably won't see it again.
