A Grab Bag of Blog


This is an illustration that recently drew for an Australian periodical called The Record. It had been awhile since I had drawn either Chesterton or Father Brown, and it was fun to revisit both:

And here is another compilation of little sketches and studies -this one featuring Lion-O! Poor Lion-O had the most unfortunate costume of all the Thundercats. Though Tygra wasn't going to win any prizes either.



Finally, there are several comics-related links I’ve been meaning to post. Here is batch one:

Sailor Twain -a webcomic by First Second's own Mark Siegel.

Zahra’s Paradise -another webcomic from First Second. This one about a bloggers quest for his brother in Iran. The comic is running in seven languages.

Kate Beaton’s St. Francis Comic -Francis loves the birds!

Matt Phelan answers five questions about writing and reading the graphic novel. Remember: "the silent panels are to be read just as carefully."

And a happy (or at least tolerable) monday to all! I have something pretty cool to post soon...

I love the little childrens at the bottom of the sketches.

I thought those guys would be popular. They all look vaguely familiar, huh?

Ben, may I use your illustration of GK Chesterton and Father Brown on my Chillicothe-Chestertonian.blogspot.com? I'll include a link back to your blog.

Also, is any of your work available at Imagekind.com?

Thanks

Hey Bob. FYI I sent you an email response to this.

I actually hadn't heard of imagekind.com until you mentioned it. Now I'm looking at it and ...seeing what I think.

Hmm....

I haven't received an e mail from you yet. Unless your comment is what you mean.

FYI Ted Schluenderfritz has a couple of things at Imagekind.

Just got your e-mail. Thanks

I'm a big fan of the "My plan is to follow you everywhere" guy. Great sketches; the one of the kiddos is nifty.

And nice work on the still life below - beautiful colors.
