Blathering Blatherskites!!!

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.

I am the Terror that Flaps in the Night!

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?

Thor Cover - Rejected!

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. :-/

Weird Sketch Wednesday - Starring Green Lantern!

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.
