Men of broader intellect know that there is no sharp distinction betwixt the real and the unreal.

Hey, check it out! Another post! It's almost like I'm an artist or something. Really, I'm just using these character designs to fill in the quiet hours of the night instead of driving myself crazier over the situation with my honey. Nero fiddled so I'm scribbling.

Anyway, this is a very Lovecraft/Mignola inspired monster. Something big and nasty and scary. A otherworldly, tentacled nightmare. Heh. Leave the hall light on for this one....

Illustration Friday - Skyline

I haven't done an Illustration Friday post in a million years and this entry is really cheap. It's not that it's a bad picture, it's just that it's barely an entry for the topic. Ah, well.

Anyway, this is a random superhero guy I came up with while looking at old Marvel Superhero role playing books. He's pretty dorky but he cracks me up so I don't care.

Those who've been reading my blog know about my girl Allison's cancer troubles. Those who don't now do. Unfortunately, things are not looking good for my honey. She beat breast cancer twice, bladder cancer once, and lung cancer on one lung. But the other lung just won't heal up. She has a tumor the size of my fist on it and it just won't shrink. I really don't know what I'd do without her so I'm still holding out hope even though she and her doctors seem to agree it's near hopeless. I just can't give up on her. Not yet.

We can't all be heroes because somebody has to sit on the curb and clap as they go by.

This energetic gentleman here came about after I saw the new Superman movie (which is really good as long as you're not a total fanboy or a complete religious nutbar. First Supes was gay and now he's Jesus. What's with you people?)

Anyway, I wish I'd thought this pic out a little more now that it's done. I didn't expect to like him as much as I do and because I laid him out poorly he's got no legs. That's what happens when you don't lay things out right. You draw right off the page. Brilliant.
