Last time I picked up my comics from Books Galore me and Junior were in for a surprise as we found out that we were on the Free Comic Book Day insert for the December issue of Previews! That's of course me and Jr. and my wife is holding my little girl Piper in her Thor costume. So crazy cause Books Galore has hundreds of pictures from last Free Comic Book Day, and they picked ours for the flyer thing! Also I should have a table at Books Galore this year to do some free sketches for all the folks coming out for Free Comic Book Day! Hope to see you all there!

My 4 year old daughter, Piper is very much into "painting" as she calls it. From 4 till 9 tonigh she would not let me draw on my table and insisted that she would paint, and watch cartoons on the laptop of course. And she is doing fantastic in pre-school, which i was worried about. Just like to show off my little girl and her art.

Here is Strawberry Girl from our wonderful friend Jason Fischer's comic Junqueland. The comic is a pretty intense ride through the rigors and sacrifices made by our nations forefathers and the wisdom with which they bore the labor of creating a nation from the wilds of the savage frontier. Oh wait, no wrong one...I'll do that again.
Junqueland is a porno comic about monsters who go hiking in the woods and meet some invisible fingers and things. Also Strawberry girl can make margaritas by squeezing her head, she is awesome. Go check out his stuff, he has got comics online to read and stuff you can order and is really plain old awesome sauce all over! http://www.studiojfish.com/ Go open your mind!

well Just thought I should throw out some clarification. I'm starting a daily comic strip today, called "Zombi bin Laden" and I am throwing it out under the banner of satire. I plan to use daily news items as the jumping off point for my social commentary. Crowsheet Studios is the name of my comics studio (aka. my basement) so I thought what better way to start things off than with a daily grind news comic strip thing. You guys and girls into that sorta thing? I hope so. If not I guess someone will be along to smash my hands!

Inspired (?) from a message by Nate Cosby on the twitter I used some markers and made the crowning piece of my portfolio, OMAC vs Officer Big Mac! Though i guess OMAC is really running away with a happy meal rather than fighting, oh well, whould you want to engage Officer Big Mac in fisticuffs? No, I think not.
my warm up for today is a sketch of vic boone from the popular comic of the same name, go check it out here http://vicboone.blogspot.com/ obviously these are just pencils to be filled in with gobs and gobs of ink. i'm not sure if there is a squid octopus thing that impersonates the sun in the comic, but i thought it'd be fun to throw in.

Watched a documentary about Indians called More Than Bows And Arrows and started doodling came out with this piece. Really like use this ebony pencil, I sharpen in with an arrowhead one of my uncles found in his field. Kept thinking about begining of scalped 50 with the history of scalping in it, so I guess that was stuck in my brain.
If you haven't seen it already, go check out Coffinmouth I did the cover and the Important Sheet comic in it. Paul Jessup is awesome.
So i doodled this today while chatting with the Chippy & Loopus guy while he drawed his comic on livestream, i spent too much time saturday night on youtube arguing with trolls about the wall street protests, and still felt angry today. i guess angry is the right thing to be in a time like this, who can be happy watching news and then seeing what it really happening?
The strip here is just Jet Black Extra Smooth Ebony pencil i have, except for the inked box at the top left. I dunno what i'm doing with it, something more? I can't say, I got a lot to do in the next couple weeks, and i really need to start a weekly comic, something to fall back on, something to hold onto rather than just jumping from thing to thing.

First pass at inks on this, once both pages are all the way done they will be up. And my scanner keeps putting these weird shadowy fingers through things, not quite sure what that means, not liking my scanner tho.
So I gotta work on sequential storytelling, these are my sheety pencils, hard to see, and no blacks. Gotta clean the garage floor cause the dog peed out there, then sling some ink on these. Maybe even name the thing and color it.

The chikump came over while i sat outside smoking, ran away, came back, repeated this several times then came over with a black walnut, and tenderly came near me, dropped the walnut and ran away, climbing up on the railing, then back down over to pick up the walnut, i looked down at him, he looked at me, he dropped the walnut again, but this time left it spinning. Some days later I found his head while cleaning the backyard, i assumed a victim of yellow cat. the walnut sits in a drawer and gives me bad dreams.
Well this is what i'm doing right at 10 am here, a self-portrait, got a bunch of things i'm trying to do, gotta put together a portfolio to take up to New York Comic Con, a few contests I want to submit too, redo my blog setup a bit, too many things, trying to take them one at a time, but my mind doesn't work so good like that, i tend to scatter brain around all sort of things, always have i guess.

Will she eventually show up in My Greatest Adventure or something? ink, watercolors and a white out pen made this thing on 9x12 watercolor paper.
