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!

*Sorry for skipping yesterday, but you’ve missed out on nothing! The story unfolded today in a two-for Friday edition just as it always would have… It is natural to sometimes feel relief when someone else is having to deal with things you’d rather not deal with at the moment. But, enough philosophy… why does Buzz keep calling Andy, Jason?

*Today’s episode is funny because it’s true… Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity states that being confined to a general space with a relative, or close friend, causes it to seem like time has slowed down… Stay in school, learn science! 🙂

Batman Day 2017

Once again, Batman Day sneaks up on me… which, I suppose, is appropriate for the super-stealthy Dark Knight to do on his day. Even so, I still managed to whip something together this afternoon in time to post for the day. Comic stores and conventions all around the country no doubt have special Batman-themed events planned for the day. Hopefully all comic fans are able to get out and partake in something going on near you. Meanwhile, here’s my contribution to today’s festivities:

*Thus ends the latest installment of Batfly and Robant… not with a bang, but with a thud. The longest running Batfly and Robant so far, but their story is not complete. Our creped crusaders shall return whenever Fisherman Gorton needs them… but tomorrow is a new day, and with a new day comes… new characters? Stay tuned!

*C’mon… you didn’t think it was just going to end cleanly did you? I have to run this thing firmly into the ground before it’s over. 🙂

*The bulk of this week has actually been taking place last week, but you knew that, right? So today is finally Monday again, but tomorrow is Friday. Wouldn’t it be nice if every week just went directly from Monday to Friday?
