IF Repair

The global economy is in need of repair. Unfortunately the $700B bailout by the US government doesn't seem to be stemming the tide.

IF Late / IF String

This week's Illustration Friday topic is "Late", which is ironic since I was late submitting for last week's topic "String". Above is a drawing of a string of insults. If I have time this week I will add another drawing for "Late".

My daughter Abby is a huge Spider-Man fan. She's been Spider-Man for the last four halloweens. (though she did alter the pattern slightly last year when she was black Spider-Man instead of traditional red&blue Spidey) After pulling the box of costumes out of the basement last weekend, it looks like she's going to be the black Spider-Man again this year. As my wife likes to say, "She is definitely your daughter."

Somehow that got me thinking about how back in the 80's (yes, I'm old) Marvel released a parody of Spider-Man called Spider-Ham. It was a short lived comic book series with animal versions of various Marvel heroes and villains. (Deer-Devil, Captain Americat, Ducktor Doom)

Kung Fu Panda

My daughter Abby loves Kung Fu Panda so I drew this for her this summer from a Kung Fu Panda poster. Due to crazy schedules this summer I'm just getting around to posting it. With the kids back in school, and colder weather approaching, I'll be stuck inside drawing more. So hopefully I'll be posting more frequently over the next few months.

IF: Sugary

This week's Illustration Friday topic is 'Sugary' and what is more sugary than kids cereal?

As Halloween approaches the General Mills "Monster Cereals" (Count Chocula, Franken Berry, Boo Berry) will make their returns to a store near you. I did the drawings above last year with my ideas of four new "Monster Cereals". From top-to-bottom they are: Creature from the Froot Lagoon, Giant Ape Grape, Nosferatutti Frutti, and Raisin the Dead.
