An apology-

I'd like to make an apology to all the people of this marvelous group that I drunk dialed last night. I hope I didn't wake anyone, and I honestly have no recollection of what I said. I just remember that last night was a baaaaaaaad night. A lesson, never drink when you're hurtin' inside.

So these are some garbage sketches from the break room. Practicing for WW really. Just having random people name some characters from games or comics, and trying to draw them in under 10 minutes. As you'll notice most of the costumes are wrong, but I'm just trying to get the jist of drawing characters from memory. So building a library of characters for the convention. Number one Convention Rule, if you can draw someone else's characters in your style and someone walks by and notices it and likes it...great way to get people to your booth. It is after all a comic convention, people want to see stuff they know.

Of course in Disney break rooms, you've got your Master Chief here, and apparently they only knew the X-Men.

It's fun stuff though. It was nice drawing for a change.

Good times, see you soon!


This did not work quite as well as I would've hoped, because I drew the head a lot less sketchy than I did the body (the chin has really hard lines).

PS. I fucking hate drawing machines. Robots are fine, but the word "machine" is so much more old-timey, so I had to make it look really primitive and steam engine-y. I'm not very good at it.

Some chick.
Some kid was giving a speech in my class and he was posing all dramatically. I drew it real fast.

Those last two were done in a really thick sharpie. Fun.

Man, Machinehead is a really good song. Too bad his head doesn't look much like a machine. It did earlier, but I changed it, for the worse, apparently (no reference).

The eye/hand probably could've been better if I had been looking at an eye or a hand, but this is all referenceless.

The Rioteer: Champion of Freedom!

So...this actually started as a gag, a few months ago. The comic book shop that I frequented was looking for a comic strip to run in their newsletter. Some of the people who worked there actually read The Path, so they asked me if I'd be interested: the pay was free comics. How could I refuse? I'm a big fan of the old Republic Captain America serial (Cap is responsible for thousands of deaths in that was great), and of "pulp" heroes like The Spirit, The Shadow, and Mignola's Lobster I said, "How about a guy fighting Nazis in New York?" I had been working on a design for "retro" Mr.Riot for DDCW, and decided that it could double as filler for DDCW until Zac and I got off our asses and started updating again: so, "The Rioteer: Champion of Freedom!" was born.

I did three stories of The Rioteer, each one roughly 5-7 pages long...and they were ridiculous. I mean, really. The Nazis had won WWII, New York was now the Third Reich's playground for mad scientists...and out of the chaos, an ex beat-cop named (get this) Shamus MacRiot becomes The Rioteer to try and fight back. Complete with a Captain America-esque shield and Mobster partners (the Mob wasn't any happier about the Germans taking over NY than The Rioteer was), The Rioteer fought Nazi Vampires, robot zombies, primordial monsters and the terrible Dr. Zeitkrieg! The last page of The Rioteer run in the last newsletter showed Freedom's Favorite Son being hurled from the top of the Empire State Building by a giant iguana. Apparently, the readers of the newsletter (all 32 of them) demand to know what happens I'm going to keep doing it. It's fun.

I'm going to have the first Rioteer story at WWTX printed (through Kinkos, because I'm poor). Above is the cover.

DADDY'S HOME! (or, Bow Before My Artistic Might!)

I return from the state of big apples and even bigger mouths. I speak, of course, of New Yawk.
Whilst there, I decided to take a crack at drawing real people in my "I wish I was Mike Mignola" style. I'm especially pleased with how Lovecraft came out. I'm contemplating grey-scaling these pics...opinions on doing so?

H.P. Lovecraft:

Edgar Allan Poe:

Mike Mignola:

I colored the cemetary pic (finally):
