Good Grief, Kite Man


From The Line It Is Drawn, Week 362:
Next week is New York Comic Con! Lots of attendees will be dressed in costumes. The theme for the next Line is to draw superheroes attending a comic con in cosplay…of other superheroes! Harley Quinn dressed as Sailor Moon, Deadpool as Batman, you get the idea…
Twitter follower, BigMike20X6 , suggested: Charlie Brown from Peanuts as Kiteman.

GL Sunbathing


From The Line It Is Drawn, Week 360:
Celebrate the Defenders by putting the four members of the Defenders into different situations. They can be fantastical (like the Defenders in the Lord of the Rings trilogy) or mundane (the Defenders at the DMV), whatever you think would be the most interesting to see our artists draw!
I went with Hal Jordan of the Green Lantern Corp.  He's sunbathing.  At the sun.  Hope you and the Mrs. enjoyed the cruise, Brian, and welcome back.

Greg, The Scorpittarius


One of the kiddos at Bacon Free Library's Comic Group came up with the idea of a Scorpittarius, the astrological symbol for those on the cusp in November!  I assigned the project of a 6-panel comic about the creature from a few of them and here's my version.

Inktober 2017: Day 01

It's Inktober again and I've decided I need to be working on my brushwork.  I am hoping that if I keep with it this year, I will be in a more comfortable spot with my inking.

Meet Mr. Mage, my version of the comic book magical type...

More to come.

Heavenly Henson


A friend of mine requested a drawing of Jim Henson in heaven.  I obliged with a quick sketch.  Then, all coincidentally like, it was Jim Henson's birthday two days later.  Happy birthday, Jim Henson.

Flophouse Podcast Monikers Cards

Zardoz
Jazz
Friend, John Holt, was looking to mini-expansion set of cards to pass out at Gencon 50 to fans of his podcast: The Flophouse. It's based on the party game Monikers, a variation on Celebrity.

Zardoz was fun to do and then I tackled Jazz: Fake cop show about a cop named Mike Jazz and his sidekick Gizmo Gadget and their gruff chief, who dies in the first episode but returns in every subsequent episode as a ghost to angrily demand Mike Jazz and Gizmo Gadget’s badges.

 I got the Gizmo character wrong, as I imagine now he should be Jazz's "Q," but it was a fun little drawing and harkened back to my Buddy Cop concept.
