A Public Service Announcement: DON'T DRAW DRUNK!!

Here's a sketch I did for my dog Tom Kelly while we were at Hennessy's Drink-and-Draw in San Diego last month. The place was packed, and they gave us these cool coasters to draw on while we knocked back Jim Beam & Cokes.

I came up with the idea of a recruiting poster for the old Shi'ar Imperial Guard from the Claremont/Cockrum X-men books. I used the old character Fang (I know the costume isn't right, but The Jim Beam was a-pouring, so you must forgive me!)

Thanks to Tom for sending me a scan to post. I may re-work this; it's a pretty interesting idea (as drunken ideas go!)

Bobo Sketch for Wendi!!

Oops! I almost forgot!

This year at SDCC my boy Tom Kelly brought his girlfriend Wendi, who's cool as hell. When she wasn't working w/ the Hero Initiative, she was the life of the party (which is saying a lot, considering she was hanging with us!) In addition to that, she is (like myself) an avid fan of James Robinson's STARMAN comic run from the 90's; she even has a sketchbook of artist's renditions of characters from the book. Of course, I said I'd add a sketch, but never had a chance while we were all out west. So one of the first things I did once I got home was to draw up a shot of my favorite character from the series, Jake "Bobo" Benetti...

I wasn't going to post this until I was sure she got the original in the mail. It got there just in time for her birthday, and she's happy with it, so I am, too. Happy Birthday, Wendi!

Mullins Anthology piece

So here's the submission I sent in for the anthology they're doing for Jeremy. I swear to God this actually happened a year and a half ago, when Jorge De La Cruz and I were having breakfast with Mullins at Clary's cafe in Savannah, GA...

Damn, I miss that Unclefucker...
