One more for November

Decided to get off my tuckus and get an entry in for Velocity's latest drawing contest. The criteria this time 'round was to take two characters and merge them together. I took the easy route and went with Man-Thing and Thing, so he could either stay Man-Thing or if you wanted to take it to the limit you could call him Man-Thing-Thing. (That'd be one heckuva Giant-Sized title, eh?)

Took a much simpler route also with this one as the super refined ones that Matt and I had done previously bore no fruit for all our extra labor. Bitter? Perhaps...or Naut?

Tag Team

Was sketching around Saturday while Lilah was watching her favorite movie in the whole wide world: IRON GIANT. Was just about to start inking when Lilah noticed what I was doing, "Guy-Ant!" and wanted in on the action. Tried holding her hand while she went over the lines, but that didn't last long and she was soon scribbling away. Lost a Pitt Pen in the process, but worth it if it helps keep her interest in art.

Picked up a new, larger sketchbook yesterday as the small one I thought would be easier to cart around is really too small to do anything other than thumbnails and headshots. Also did page layouts for the first issue of THE HOLLOW and want to start cranking on that sucka while we wait for the second part of our 'Haps story. That's all I got.

Drink & Draw

Met the 'Fus yesterday at Legend for a couple local brews and drawing. He threw down the Morbius gauntlet for our subject, which threw me as I kinda know the character, but not really. I had to actually wait for Matt to draw his so I could see what the costume looked like. I kinda gave him Spawn's wraparound cape/collar thing not knowing any better. For not having drawn anything for a couple weeks I don't think it turned out too bad. I definitely need a bigger sketchbook as the little one, while easy to tot around, isn't so great for working up decent drawings.

The Mad Cow O' Hallowe'en

Since Todd asked...Lilah went in the cow outfit her grandparents bought her last year. She and I went around the block with her Hello Kitty goodie bag while Angie managed the candy back home. Lilah had people running in from their cars just for the chance to give her some candy. (It's true. She was that cute.) She finished the night with her favorite cartoon, Curious George, and that was that as they say.
