The Secret Ending to Where The Wild Things Are

Dear Mr. Sendak,

I am so sorry for this comic. I thought it was funny, so I quickly sketched it out. Please don't visit me tonight in the Night Kitchen.

I want the nightmares to stop.

My Twitter Twoubles

Guess what I did a couple of days ago!

I also made a little comic about my first experience on Twitter:

Epilogue to the story: Rebecca wrote again, said that she was joking and that I was doing fine. To those of you who haven't heard of her, check out her website: Kinokofry. It's pretty and it's incredible. Pretty incredible.

Any Opportunity to Draw a Dragon...

I'm a big fan of Andrew Fulton's comic work. This guy arranges his panels in the strangest, most insane and beautiful ways I've ever seen or imagined. His use of negative space makes him absolutely unique. Plus, his drawing style is effortless. Or at least seems that way to me.

I seethe with envy whenever I read his stuff. I want to copy it and claim it as my own.

A while back, he drew a comic about a wizard and asked for someone to finish it. I jumped at the chance.

He put it up on his site and said some very nice things about me. If you don't know this guys work, you should check it out.

Hourly Comic Fail -plus a few sketches from the farm

Bugger. It's been a hectic week for us. We've been working and getting ready for a visit up to Briony's mum's farm up on the NW coast of Tassie. Add to that the excitement of an upcoming visit from my brother, Brandon, and his boyfriend, Terry. so, needless to say, I haven't been able to keep focused on much lately.

I tried to do another trial hourly comic, but just didn't have the time to finish it. So, I'm posting what I did finish as well as some sketches I did on the farm. (That's my New Year's Reso - do more life drawing. In ink when possible.)
