Morning Bike Ride



I biked to work today.
I needed to be at work early, so it was nice and chilly when I left. 
Cold enough to wear my scarf and fingerless gloves.

Two weeks ago I bought some new pants, this morning was the first time wearing them while I bike.
The right pant leg was getting caught on my bike so I rolled it up. 
I was wearing my favorite pair of socks, my skull socks!

I was a total BA this morning on my Windsor Essex DELUX.

The End.

Happy Halloween 2013!!


Candy and Bildad are back to say Happy Halloween!
Why? Because I always post a drawing of them on Halloween.

I should have done something more creative and story oriented, but it was fun to just draw.

Inktober Week 3

I got a new pen this weekend, and I have been having fun with it.
This pen, she is a tricky one. I have to get to know better.  



Doodling with my little brother at Starbucks. He was doing home work :)








Inktober Week 2

Last week I went to Da Poetry Lounge and sketch while people performed their poems and spoken-word. 

It was a good night. 
I'll be going back.

Meet The Knight Owl

Last week I devoted way too much to designing this little guy, but it was a of of fun and a nice break. 

Why take so much time to draw an owl themed knight? I will tell you why. Yachtclub Games putting out a game later this year called Shovel Knight, and part of their Kick Starter campaign was an art contest. The winner got the $500-tier rewards and the possibility of the character making it into the game. Sadly I did not win, but I did get an honorable mention, and some pretty cool complements (check out the comment they left on the picture). But the best news is that they haven't picked the character that they are going to add into the game, so there is still hope!! Tweet at them to add @frakfraco's Knight Owl to the game!! Here is their twitter handle @YachtClubGames.

:P

Below is the presentation I emailed them. ENJOY!



Meet The Knight Owl! Don't let his size fool you, this little guy is a force to be reckoned with. Being the former inventor for the Enchantress herself he's got some tricks up his sleeves. His armor is covered in feather-like blades that he can throw at his enemies, a creation of his own design. This inventor gone rouge is on the lamb and is hiding out in the forest. If you by chance cross his path be careful, he is only out for himself. 

• Pros: He is as fierce as he is inquisitive, and his whit is as sharp as his armor; the perfect party guest.
• Cons: He is very nosey and is quite the gossip.

He likes to jump. 


He is short.

He is fashionable. 
This cloak helps him remain unnoticed, he is on the lamb after all. 
And he would LOVE to be in your game!!


This is how I Imagine The Knight Owl and Shovel Knight's first encounter going.
And yes he did invent that bridge.



Lastly here are some sketches of The Knight Owls development :)
Just for fun.



WHOO should you add to Shovel Knight?
The Knight Owl that's whoo!!





P.S. I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS!!
Please keep up the good work! And lets all be friends!

Adventure Time with Lillian and Frank


What started off as quick sketch turned out to be a lot of fun. Arguably I should have been more productive in a practical way, but so what who cares :P 

This is was inspired by a conversation I had with Lillian Ritchie at work on Friday, and by a message she left me!

The end.



P.S. I wish I was really was an Owl Wizard.

Hoo Me?


I watched the "Splicing"episode of Batman Beyond tonight.
So I drew myself with a little splicing of my own.

I would splice owl DNA! :P

The Fallies of Frankie

Last Friday and Saturday I had a rough couple of days, my clumsiness managed to reach new heights. 

Friday afternoon I managed to bite my own finger so hard that I drew blood. MY OWN BLOOD! 

Twenty minuets later I discovered that I managed to smash one of those McDonald's Apple Pies in my pocket, covering my ear-buds and 2 of my favorite drawing pens in dumb apple-goop. 

Saturday morning I fell off a rock and halfway down a hill. 

To top off all the fun, on Saturday night I decided to burn my iPhone case on a candle at the dinner table.  #YAY #sarcastichashtag 

 I worry for my future self.

When I Should Have Been Drawing the Model...

And... 

... a modern day Snow White. 
Which I  now realize has the same haircut as the Snow White from "Once Upon A Time". #ohwell

Church Notes | Discover Beauty


Eye for an eye was't obligatory revenge, eye for an eye was intentional and intelligent mercy. Back in the day the punishment often out weighted the crime, at the risk of overly simplifying it eye for an eye was much better than eye for a life. In what ways can I be intentionally and intelligently merciful today? Maybe a better word for "merciful", in this context, is patient. How can I love those who put me down? Serve those who label me closed-minded? Minister to those who consider me stupid or weak? First step is to be intentional. Ask the Lord to show us their beauty, and realize that they too were created for great and wonderful things. So we can see them for who they are, despite what they are doing and how they are acting. The next step is to be intelligent. We MUST ask the Lord to give us discernment on how to interact with them. I would argue that spiritual warfare is much more of an art than a science. Being sensitive to the Holy Spirit one step at a time will help us minister to each individual we encounter. It might be sitting down and talking with them about Christ, it might be sitting down and talking to them about Downton Abbey. Most of the time it's just being being a patient and humble person, who is willing to smile and wave on a regular basis. Ask the Lord show you the beauty around you, and turn the grey into color. Trust me, it makes this life much more fun. Not easier, just better.
