*For what it’s worth… it would be a fun thing to watch on live TV, wouldn’t it? Bigly ratings to be sure! 🙂

*The only good thing about Columbus Day is getting to make this joke… Meanwhile, this is the calm before the storm (where have I heard that recently?)… as this week serves as the prelude to the epic storyline that cannot be named, for naming it would give it away.

Inktober 2017 Part 1

Inktober is a thing, in October, started by Jake Parker back in 2009. It has grown over the years but the core concept is to complete and share one ink drawing per day for the entire month. I’ll skip the detailed history and origins and leave it to you to visit the Inktober Web site for yourself as he covers it pretty well there on his site. I participated last year, though I didn’t quite make it to the end. I hope to make it the whole way this year!

My first two days of Inktober were Flash illustrations that I donated to the Troy Library Mini-Con fundraising efforts. Please checkout yesterday’s post for more information about that convention and to see the first two Inktober illustrations. Below are the drawings from day three to day seven:

Inktober 2017 Week One (Days 3-7)

Plastic Man

Calvin

Hobbes

Monster

Another Monster

On day one I did a larger sketch, but everything else has been 2.5-3.5-in. sketch card illustrations. I enjoyed drawing Plastic Man, because he can be drawn as anything… you basically can’t draw him incorrectly! 🙂 I was a big fan of Bill Watterson’s Calvin and Hobbes comic strip back in the day, so those were fun too. I think my favorites this week, though, might be the two random monsters I drew. I drew those without any reference, so their origin is somewhere deep in my own warped mind.

Please let me know what you think and remember, if you’d like an original commission by me or would like to hire me as an Illustrator, please use the Contact page and let me know as much as you can about your request.

Inktober 2017 and the Troy Library Mini-Con

Just like last year, I’m participating in Inktober again this year… trying to draw at least one new hand-drawn illustration each day. Last year I didn’t quite make it to the end, but I hope to actually complete 31 illustrations this year. Time will tell. Be sure to checkout the Inktober Web site if you want to find out more of what this is all about. I have been posting daily to Facebook and will be posting weekend summaries on the blog like I did last year every Sunday to collect all of the week’s creations.

For now, though, I would like to call your attention to the Troy Library Mini-Con, which takes place on October 14th (one week from today) in Troy, NC. The convention is being held at the Montgomery County Library, located on 215 W Main St in Troy and runs from noon until 5:00pm. There will be lots of free comics, cosplay, trivia, dealers, guest artists, and pretty much everything you expect from a comic convention! Also, there will be a raffle as part of a fundraising effort to raise money for Rod Haase and his battle with cancer. Rod is an actor who has been in many things, but comic fans of the 1970s might remember him from the Legends of the Superheroes on TV where he was the first live-action Flash!

Please checkout the Troy Library Mini-Con page on Facebook for further information and updates about the convention. Also, please visit Rod Haase’s GoFundMe page if you aren’t going to be able to attend this convention but still would like to contribute to helping him with his expenses. For my part, I am unable to attend this convention in person but I did donate my first two days of Inktober sketches to the cause, so if you want to own the original art for either of these pieces shown below you will need to attend the show next Saturday!

 


The first illustration is on 9×12-in. Canson 98-lb paper and is a portrait of the Flash inspired by Rod Haase’s original portrayal on TV from 1979. The second illustration is a 2.5×3.5-in. personal sketch card of the Flash in motion. I have signed both sketches on the reverse side and included a link to my blog in hopes that whomever wins these at the convention will visit here and say hello. I hope everyone who attends the convention has a good time next weekend!

*Poor Al… sometimes I forget he is there too. Be careful what you ask for, though, you might get it! 🙂

*Timely distraction is a wonderfully devious thing… makes you forget the important stuff in an instant. I wonder if anyone ever uses it to their advantage? Hmmm… 😉

‘Sects Wednesday 10/04/2017

*Yes, this again! I’ve done this enough times though, that I don’t have to actually unwind it all for it to make sense, right? I mean I could spend the next two weeks on each blanket and each pig… but man… that would be monotonous… I’d never do that, right?  I hope I’m not going to do that. I hated myself for doing that the last time! 🙂

*Always love a good Get Smart reference… haven’t done this gag in a while… I think it works. Also, since Andy “Jason” is new to the gang, every recycled bit is new to him! 🙂
