Halloween and SuperGirl

Submitting this for Illustration Friday-TRICK or TREAT... SuperGirl costume idea? Frank and the Wolf..in costume or...???

Maybe a stretch but until I got something better I'll go with this.

A SuperGirl sketch I did up.. her proportions are off a tad but I liked the overall pose and look. Didn't really try to redesign a costume but wanted to give her a more practical one..mini skirts and short shorts do not a heroine make.

A little Frank and Wolf sketch from last night. My son thought it was cool.

A little (?) beastie I sketched in pen on an envelope I had laying on my desk. If you're wondering.. he's puzzled by the lint he found in his bellybutton.

Illustration Friday-EXTREME

My EXTREME clown..sort of like Bingo from the Garfield comic strip.."HEEEYYYYY-EYYY KIIDSSS!!!"
Added a crappy little blurred water effect since he's supposed to be squirting you with his flower.
Ballpoint pen on copy paper colored with colored pencils. A quickie but that's all I'm capable of...
better than nothing though.

Nosferatu the vampyre

This creature is a little less sympathetic than the Frankenstein, he also has a ittle Mr. Burns in him apparently. I should have made him saying "Excellent." Anyway another Halloween themed pic.

Illustration Friday -OPEN

Seems all I do is sketch stuff.. no finished work. Oh well.. at least I'm still drawing something everyday. This is for Illustrations Friday's OPEN. Summer's done but this little fella's still hanging in there.

Sketches and stuff

Posted this today over at the Drawing Board's Iron Fist Jam. Did it up quick with a ball point and copy paper. Good old Iron Fist... should've done Power Man too.

Posted this at the Atland Forum

My contribution to the Collaborative Comics Project. Took me forever to get this done. I know, I know it doesn't look it but I had the script part done then everything else had to wait. Life does that to ya.

This is part of the design for a local company that wanted a crazy forklift driver.. the shirt was one of those "I SURVIVED.." etc etc. This is the composite sketch since I drew the cartoony forklift first then added the driver on another sheet of paper.

Here's the art all inked with a brush pen. I hardly ever use a brush pen..as in NEVER but since my other pens were drying out I used what I had handy. Added the grays in photoshop and made the whole shebang a halftone. There's additional type on the design but I figured the art was good enough to show.

This post makes the 44th post for this year..I'm tied with 2006 and still have 3 months to add more.

Oh yeah I got stress... tons of it. Anyone want some?

Building a house. I was told it was a stressful undertaking. Ok. I anticipated some headaches... but not the %#$@^& amount of them I've had with this project. I'm telling you, it seems that MY house is the first house anyone of the yahoos that have worked on it have ever done.. EVER. From the foundation on up! I do mean EVERYONE!
I won't go into details..suffice to say it's been something, every....step....of ....the ....way.
Really there are only two guys in the whole project I'd ever use again. Mike Oliveira Flooring, did a fantastic, affordable, fast job of my hardwood floors. Five rooms worth. And the 2nd is Al Jeronymo the carpenter constructiong my front porch and back deck and stairs. Awesome work and pros, the both of them. If you live in the New Bedford Mass. area and need some carpentry or floors done..call these guys.

P.I.A. Neighbors... every new house HAS to have one of these folks. We got our share. Complaints from the get go. Letters to the town from her lawyer. Even a No Trespass order served on us too. WTF!!!! What have I done to this woman. Nothing. Funny thing is she was at my wedding 16 years ago. There are tons of extra details to this whole sorted tale and I may write about them but I'm too damn pissed off to think straight.

Anyway.. I've been venting all night over this crap. I've never wanted harm to come to anyone..but after all this I have seriously altered that view. Where are the stray meteors that strike people down?
