Emerald Con News?

There's about 4 or 5 people bumping around at the Emerald City Con. Need wrap ups or something.

Just to show my good faith...

And I will do it today, Tuesday.

me too-Breaking Bad. Just finshed up Season 3

My Tumblr
Watched 3 seasons of Breaking Bad on Netflix Streaming. Great, smart writing. Great characters.
Part of my absence is based on having a Tumblr account I can also dump junk onto. I love Tumblr for all the animated gifs. Blogspot should get on the ball. Lightbox is good. Now gifs.
That one drawing upper left is from a half effort western with George Montgomery.
Emile Meyer . The old man bad guy from Shane.
The western is Hostile Guns

New drawings!  I've been meaning to post some new stuff for a while but only now have had the chance.

The Sweatbox on Youtube>>>Beep>>>>No longer available. Just a Damn minute. Now it's on Vimeo

The Sweatbox

I got my own copy via keepvid. I was afraid it would disappear. Looking forward to seeing it . FINALLY.

Uhoh. If you didn't see it already, that link no longer works. Disney lawyers, earning their keep. I got my copy heh heh. I'm sure it was in the wild long enough it can be found without much effort

Thanks to Benjamin, there is now a new Vimeo link

Dok Cards

Hello good people! Been a while, but not that long in dog years.

Just yesterday Hundred Pound Hank was walking me around the neighborhood and he 'membered me of that. He sort of bumped his lumbering, four-footed self into me and I thought, "Tag, I'm it." Then I saw some artistic graffiti, admired the signature and I thought "Good tag there". Later we stopped to buy some Girl Scout cookies.. though I worried aloud that they'd go right to my waistline. The Grandmother of the girl selling the cookies (a formidable matron in a trench coat and a former member of the organization), assured me that would never happen. See above. But as Hundred Pound Hank and I wandered away, munching a few of those Tagalongs.. a mysteriously overwhelming desire to visit this blog just seemed to jump out of nowhere!

Strange how you can be innocently pointed at visiting some blog... like my own newly resurrected one for instance. Where I've started to post greeting cards. Simply as an example I mean. There, turns out, you could all become members!

I'm Thinking About Going to Emerald City Comic Con

I wrote to the organizer and he said there would be a Pro Badge waiting there for me at the Con if I decide to come.  What's the best day to attend if I can only go for one day?

Couple of Cool Things

Frazetta Fabulous 50s

Wacom Tablet Anti-Grav Arm

This is how I'd probably want to set up. But notice that although the appeal of this is freedom of use, that corner is starting to touch the arm. That would be annoying.

But this guy has a doodler-cartoonist's posture figured out.

I'm gonna be at Wondercon in Anaheim this weekend.  Anybody else going?  I'll be in Artist's Alley, something like AA-153.  See you there... or not.

German Fairy Tales-500 Years Old

500 seems like a lot

Public Domain stuff for an illustrator to tap into. Hype it with the angle Never Before Seen, Classic, etc.
Done in Jack Kirby's style

Moebius on Tumblr-RIP Mar 10-2012

The headline is the link. In lieu of having to track down and pay for all the great books out there, the interwebs have proven an awesome (and cheaper) subsitute. I give thee Jean Giraud.

Glen Keane's Pencil

Blackwing Jenny owns this pack. They can't be had. Another one of those art supplies that you needed to stock up on.

Cork 62

Hey look.  After two decades there's a new Cork.  It was nice to draw the little minx again.  Hopefully I can get back to a regular pace with it like before.

2010 Is officially my last comicon

Spurlock Gives Me All I Need

I'll just buy the Josh Whedon-Spurlock movie. If I ever need any Con nostalgia, I'll watch it.
