A great Weekend...

I can't remember the last time I spent two days in a row away from my drawing board and laptop, but I haven't done any drawing in over 48 hours! I had a great weekend, so it's okay...

getting my AfroSteamPunk on...

One of the commissions I have on my desk is for the author and indie publisher Dazjae Zoem (Maji, Purple Magazine), who has written several articles for my magazine GhettoManga Quarterly. Dazjae champions the cause of underrepresented cultures in her fiction and non-fiction writing, and commissioned me to do a piece for her based on characters from her epic Steampunk fantasy, Wonderdark.

did I mention I drew Ultraman?

Ultraman by samax amen...
hey everyone! I drew this drawing of Ultraman (DC's evil anti-matter universe Superman doppelganger from JLA: Earth 2) last week for one of the sketch challenge blogs i'm in. it's equal parts ballpoint pen, sharpie and photoshop (if you can believe that!). Been so busy I haven't had time to post it.
hope you like it!
now, back to the drawing board...

the SHOCKING TRUE STORY of easter bats...

When I was in college, I worked in the dorm (WEST SIDE!) and we had a coloring contest the week before Easter. So there was a cute little drawing of the easter bunny carrying a basket full of painted eggs getting his frolic on or whatever that the residents could color. It was a fairly lame drawing, so one day while I was working at the front desk, I drew this drawing and taped it up on the wall with the other entries after my shift was over...
I am not exaggerating when I say there was serious controversy by people who colored their bunnies and were outraged that I "cheated" by drawing my own bunny... I just laughed and withdrew my 'entry' (I didn't even care about the contest... there wasn't even a prize!) and taped it to my door instead. The residents on my wing LOVED it (this was in the mid nineties, and Batman: The Animated Series was at the height of its popularity). I get a good chuckle out of it everytime I look at it! One of my favorite souvenirs from my college days...
