My apologies for the delay in blogging. Busy does not begin to describe me lately. The good news is that I am working on a few cool things. I will have some announcements to make very soon. Nothing huge, but good things.
Also, the next Drawergeeks topic is "Robots", which might just be my favorite subject. I hope to do at least three pieces, but we will see what time allows. I have one started, and hope to post something on it soon.
And finally, I am having technical issues with my website. I hope to have the glitches fixed soon.

This week for Drawergeeks I tried something a little different. I did an animated .gif file. Nothing crazy. Just a little movement. The topic was "Grrr Face" so I made one of my Rocket Dreams characters participate.
Just click on the thumbnail to see him grrrr. I really feel it at least needs a sound effect! Hmm, why is that smaller image looking so weird... oh well.
Friday is upon us, and may I say that I am really glad to see it.
Happy weekend to all.
This week has been rough. Extreme work load. Crazy stress. My 10 month old has become mobile. I am finishing up my Drawergeeks! submission and I should be able to post that on Friday.

A quiet night. The stars are quietly twinkling above you. Then WOOOSH!!! A small rocket zooms over your head, barely clearing the trees! I am starting to dream up a few color layouts, just to explore the mood of the story. This is right after the rocket launches, and goes screaming over rooftops before shooting up towards space.
I am exhausted, and it isn't even Tuesday yet. This day job is realling draining me. Must keep plowing forward... one day I will buy my freedom! Hah.

I had always wanted to include some sort of super space squid in the Rocket Dreams story, and my good friend Paul Conrad had doodled a squiddy earlier in the week so I felt inspired. This is rough, and needs some help... but it satisfied my need for a space squid for now.

Happy Friday all. Here is the Captain Marvel piece, in it's final state. As usual I put this off till the last minute so I don't have time to go back and tweak. In the end, he is smacking a giant robot, which was my desired effect.
The showdown went something like this:
Captain Marvel: Hey robot, outta my way.
Giant Robot: Uh, no.
Captain Marvel: Dude, you're askin for it.
Giant Robot: Like I am so much bigger than you.
Captain Marvel: CRACK!!
I don't know details, but that is pretty much how it went down.

Ended up doing a scribble for Drawergeeks this week. I really shouldn't have, since I have no time to do such silly things. But I did anyway. This guy is a "Vanhoozerized" version of Captain Marvel, complete with extra fat and stubby proportions. I know there are some "fixes" I should make here, but I am guessing this might be the way he ends up. Time being a factor and all. There is a second part to this that I will hopefully be able to finish. I certainly hope this next topic is a bit more inspiring.
It's Thursday. The day before Friday.
