I walked up to my wife, Shelley, the other night and said, "You won't believe the dream I had last night." She responded with, "Oh yeah! I dreamed that Lesley (my sister-in-law) was a casserole!" Her dream won, clearly, no matter WHAT my dream was! I got the details of this living casserole and the drawing is below. She said that one moment it was Lesley, and the next, it was a 2-sided casserole with googly eyes and wheels turned up on it's sides. It wasn't sentient. Shelley had no problem with her sister being a casserole on wheels, but she was distressed that someone had eaten part of it! Weird dreams are the best!
So, Jeff (of 4after5 art collective fame) came up with the great idea of drawing bad guys doing good things. I loved the theme so much I drew 2 ideas. Check 'em out below. I'll post the other guys' "Bad Guys" when everyone finishes theirs ...ehem....Jeremy...

I just couldn't wait until Wednesday to post these weird sketches! For those taking notes, that's Bat-Hue at the top, bored Batman 2nd, and Green Lantern Salaak bringing up the rear. I believe that's my very first Salaak drawing EVER!

Okay, so it's Tuesday! You got me! Weird Sketch Tuesday just doesn't sound right though. Here are a couple of sketches from my doodle pad at work. Hope you like 'em. I'm kinda diggin' that monstrosity myself.

I haven't posted in a while, which is bad. I have been saving up weird sketches in my posting absence though, which is good. Here's are a few random sketches with a Superman and Supergirl thrown in there for fun. And yes, that is a robot doing The Robot. Hope you enjoy.

Well, it doesn't have the same ring to it as Weird Sketch Wednesday, but who cares? Here's a weird sketch I drew during our last staff meeting. It started off just me wanting to draw a guy punching...then it turned into Iron Man...then it turned out that he was punching a bunny rabbit...it just happened like that....don't judge me...

I'm not sure how this came up, but for some reason last weekend Shelley said the phrase "He-Moo" in place of He-Man. That immediately sparked an image in my head...and here it is! This is kind of in line with the somewhat quasi-realistic versions of Darkwing Duck and Gizmoduck that I drew recently...only this is taking a non-animal character and making him a quasi-realistic cartoon. However you break it down, this is my favorite illustration in a while. I may come back later and draw some cow support characters: Moo-at-Arms, Tail-A, and Skelegor to name a few.

I thought the Darkwing Duck sketch would inspire me to draw his side-kick, Launchpad, but instead I ended up drawing fellow duck-vigilante, Gizmoduck, from the Duck Tales cartoon. I had forgotten all about Gizmoduck! He's like the Iron Man of the cartoon duck world. I had fun drawing him and I think he makes a good companion piece to Darkwing. Ducks are just fun to draw.

My daughter and I have been watching some old 80's & 90's cartoons online lately, and her newest favorite is my OLD favorite, Darkwing Duck! Watching that show again inspired me to sketch this half-realistic take on St. Cannard's favorite vigilante. Maybe I'll draw Launchpad McQuack next?

So, there's a blog I like to follow called "Covered" where artists take published comic book covers and redraw or re-imagine them and submit them to be posted on the Covered blog. I thought this was a great idea and recreated a recent Thor comic book cover for consideration. Being that Thor is covered in fire on the original, I thought it would be funny to recreate that, only have him freaking out about being on fire. I thought it turned out pretty well, but the Covered guy didn't think it made the grade, so I'm going to post it here instead. I've placed the original beside my version for easy & fun comparison. Hope you like it better than he did. :-/

I drew this Hue Green Lantern Corp. sketch during our latest staff meeting. Turned out pretty fun. The GL Spidey is an old sketch from a few months back that I had forgotten to scan in. Looking forward to the upcoming Green Lantern movie, though I doubt it will hold a candle to Thor. Hope you enjoy the sketches.

Okay, so it has really been bugging me lately that I can't draw women very well. Growing up I was always drawing ninja turtles and Spider-Man, and never seemed to get around to learning how to draw the fairer sex. Well, I'm tired of it. My next extended project is to fix this problem. When I feel like drawing, I'm going to find some woman to reference. She may be a cartoon or she may be in People magazine, but darn it, I'm going to learn to draw women! First up is one of my favorite cartoon ladies of all time, Teela, from the Masters of the Universe. There are definitely some proportion and positioning problems here, but I think she turned out pretty well for a first try.
Well, I don't do Weird Sketch Wednesday* every week, but when I do I try to really make it weird. Here are some weird alien sketches I drew at work. I did these preparing for a jam comic my friends and I just completed. I like these sketches. There's a lot of energy at work here.

Just to let everyone know, my pop-art style Captain America painting is currently hanging in the CoolSpace gallery at ArtSpace in downtown Shreveport, alongside my pal Jeremy's print (the one above Cap). We're part of a show called "Impromptu". There was a call to North LA artists to bring in art for an "impromptu" show, so I jumped on the chance to have some of my art up in the coolest gallery in town. Impromptu will be showing from March 10 through May 7, so stop by if you have a chance.

I've been on a big pro-Green Lantern kick lately. I bought a Green Lantern hardcover graphic novel, I'm sporting a new GL tshirt at least once a week, and I've been buying up Green Lantern action figures like they're going out of style. In fact, I'm in the process of customizing one of those GL figures that I have a duplicate of into a Spider-Man Green Lantern. That's where this sketch came from. I wanted to see what he would look like with a green mask and then again with a black mask. The green mask definitely wins. I'll post a picture of that action figure when I finish it. Hope you like the sketch!

This is my character, Hue, drawn in the style of one of my favorite comic book artists, Mike Mignola, the creator of Hellboy. I've wanted to try Mignola's style before but haven't yet captured it until now. I think this turned out pretty cool. I might develop this more, but for now, enjoy this quick sketch of HueBoy!
