Yesterday I got another chance to update and draw on the menu boards over at Aversboro Coffee. Last time I was there I drew a Twinkie boxing a Cupcake. This time they wanted something different so they asked for the Mona Lisa drinking coffee. It’s always a challenge working with these chalk pens and limited colors but still it was fun and they seemed to like it. Hopefully I’ll be back sometime in the future to draw something else.
I was recently lent 90-something issues of Invincible from my friend who lives across the street from me. It was all in hardcover or trade format so it was just awesome to read through that much story all at once. Also, since the material was so awesome it still didn’t seem like enough so I jumped on this ol’ internet machine and looked around to see what was new with the series. Turned out they had hit 100 issues and were having an Art contest to celebrate the 100th issue of the series. I immediately thought of Invincible and Dinosaurus fighting. Since one of the rules was that it had to have the word Invincible on it I decided I didn’t want to just copy and paste the logo and decided to bust it up a bit. I don’t know I just think it looks cool.
I’ve read the rules and since this contest is for merchandise and stuff I don’t think it would be wise to share the final image on my blog, but I did scan the pencils and inks. So, I figure I could share those parts of the process. This was a lot of fun, I hope I can get to a comic store sometime soon so I can read issue 100.

This was the penciled version. I used pencils and a piece of paper. (Erasers too.)
Good times, LaTeRz.
I’m pretty much done moving and I love my new home. So.. It’s time to get back to making stuff. I wanted to draw something I don’t normally draw so for some reason I thought of a fairy. My first sketch was her flying around with chainsaws and then I thought it would look cool if her wings were actually the chainsaws. I know some of you are wondering how would she fly? Well, I guess the next time I draw her I’ll add some rocket boots or something. Problem solved
I’m actually packing up my art stuff right now. I’m moving to a new house and I’m so excited about it. My kids are going to have more room to play and for the first time in quite a while I’ll get a room to set up my studio in. This is going to be awesome! It’s going to be a process because we are still fixing up the new place so for about a week or so I’m going to have my hands full. Soon though I will finally get to set up shop proper and really start exploring all these ideas I have in my head. Till then, have fun everyone.
