Hello all and welcome back to another edition of “High School Drawings!”  This not so hot little number was drawn sometime in 1993. I found a box of drawings and story pages most from 1993-1995ish. Not a lot of good stuff in there, but I did like this one. Hard to believe there was a time where I would get anything, felt tips markers, sharpies, red ball point pens and a typewriter to do a drawing. On newsprint, no less! There’s even paste-up on the Cliff Steele caption box.

I colored it to bring a bit of a modern look to it. I darkened the hell out of the background because let’s face it, it’s abysmal. I scanned some weathered newsprint to give it that old look of the original while making the blacks pop with upping the threshold.

Pens, markers, ink on newsprint. Image area 11” x 17”

Yup, I was a big Morrison Doom Patrol fan at the time. It was a revelation.

b-one FUNZIES! I must have apes on the brain! 
Has it really been three months since I last posted a b-one FUNZIE? Unfortunately it has been that long. Fortunately, I have been updating the blogs with other artwork in the meantime. Why take so much time in between strips? Well, I was working on a sequel to last year’s Bulletproof Chicken. This time around I decided to color my two stories myself. I learned a whole lot, but of course it was time consuming. It’s the busy season at the day job and it doesn’t leave me much room to complete more of my King Bone Press commitments.

For more info on Bulletproof Chicken: Nuggets and other KBP books check the website here.
Comic Bastards have a little write up about KBP’s Fall line up here.

Please enjoy responsibly and don’t feed the monkeys,

Ape not kill ape.

Ah, Koba you magnificent bonobo. I have mixed feelings about this piece. I had a great time drawing it but I think that the mashup of Koba and Carmen Miranda of the Copacabana is a little too subtle. I didn’t want it to be over the top, but it seems that there’s something missing. Probably citrus fruit.

I’m getting more comfortable coloring and employed a few new techniques (for me) on this piece.

There was also this little mistake when I accidentally opened up a lower layer when coloring. you can see a little bit of the process here with the flat colors. I liked they way it looked so I saved a copy to post here.

"Female Thor"

I was spending too much time away from the drawing board as I was scanning, coloring and lettering my stories in Bullet Proof Chicken Nuggets so I decided to have a little fun. “Female Thor” was getting a whole lot of buzz and I don’t believe all the negative publicity about it. This drawing has no “statement” attached, it’s just me having fun. Comics are still fun, right?

The Luba and “female Thor” mashup seems obvious, but I haven’t seen anybody do it yet. If I’m wrong I’m sure the internet will let me know. Oh, one last note. The color palette is about 90% taken straight from Gilbert Hernandez covers. The homage should be obvious, but I just wanted it said publically.

Every once in a while I do a small sketch card on a whim. Here’s a few. My personal favorite is Esqueleto, although I assume that people will gravitate more to the Thanos one.
