Okay, the Olympics have come and gone. A brilliant Opening ceremony, watched Phelps win and win again, watched Alicia blow it for the US team feeling sorry for herself, some nice volleyball, beach and indoor, and watched Shawn get her Gold on Beam. More lurking on 4chan, but I just had to caption this pic when I saw it. Censored for kiddies.
I'm hoping sometime NBC or some other company will release the Opening ceremony in it's entirety. Maybe with an option to cut out the commentary too.

Legion continues on, getting through it as fast as I can while juggling 2 other assignments. Feast or Famine as they say, and for some reason all the jobs come in at the same time that I had to turn down 3 other jobs.
Page 10 was fun cause I got to do all sorts of styles. A bit of a challenge, and a bit of tracing too. It's nice to flex the art muscles once in a while. Don't ask me what's going on in the page... I just try to draw purty piktures.
Super Friends #5
Another issue based on the Mattel toy line. Big torsos! Tiny Beefy Legs! This one has everyone turning into simians of some sort or another. I was supposed to ink the full issue, but I had some other work to do and unfortunately had to give the other half away. Mike DeCarlo did a fabulous job on the other half.
Buy it... you know, for kids. :P

Okay, I admit that the first try at Page One was kinda bugging me throughout the weekend, and apparently my editor thought it was crap too. :P
So here's another stab at it, also including headshots for Roll Call, since apparently a lot of the time in stories, writers don't always say who is who in the context of the story. The little joke with Saturn Girl and Lightning Lad was an added touch by the writer of the story.
More prominent sexy Dream Girl works for me, too bad I'm not inking myself on this to guarantee I get the page back. :(

Well, maybe not all said. I didn't have a ref for Dream Girl from any other angle than her right side, so I had to extrapolate. I was thinking of fitting the traditional heads for Roll Call in, but didn't think I had the room.
I'll be interesting if I can get the style down. I just noticed all the girls' forearms are thicker than their upper arms. Weird.

Yup, back from SDCC. It was a blast, still getting too big IMO. I'll see if I can post some pics up to Photobucket or something when I find a bit more time. We saw the Star Trek Exhibition at the San Diego Air and Space Museum, it was geeky fun. Got a really good pic out of it (Thanks Kathleen!).So the first half of the week was me recovering from the con, and I was finally able to get the rest of the Samurai Jack story pencilled up (2 pages included). I did the page layouts first then finished it off, which seemed to go faster. I might have to try that on the LSH story too. But I couldn't resist pencilling up the title right away for the first page. It's Dream Girl, so it's gotta be Sex-say! ;-) Enjoy!
