one last Halloween sketch before the day passes us all by. A preliminary drawing for "almost loose". I envisioned some scarecrow-ish ghoul come to life out in a field just patiently working at his task, knowing that it has time on it's side. It has been forgotten, presumed dispatched. It feeds on that vision in it's head. One more arm to go...

Island of Misfit Bond Villains: Would there be a minor league for S.P.E.C.T.R.E. assassins, henchmen, villains like there is in baseball? Like the Legion of Super-Heroes younger sibling the Legion of Substitute Heroes, where are the those that didn't get the entire super power gift basket? Or is there a training/secret lab for Evil just like for "Q" where they things may not go as planned?

Dana point sitting 4 finally back to it... this shot is pieces of scans frankensteined together. Hey, I have a small scanner, and I am sensitive about it, ok? Ok. I think the groundsquirrel may end up on the eraser shreds pile before this is all overwith. It may end up there before the night is over.
Wednesday Sketch Group: 102108- showed up late this week. not much in the way of supplies either. So I just used kraft paper or what we all know as Grocery sack paper. Yup, I was brown baggin' it. That is why the fingerprints, and folds are still there. helps hide the poor drawing this week. Hey, everybody has an off day, or week.

Drawergeeks sketch... we had an extra week... so I grabbed a piece of old black mat board and tried my hand at my version of black velvet. Colored Pencil on black board. I just couldn't find where to fit in a crying bullfighting Elvis. I may try a final like this but scratchy if I have time.

please, PLEASE, will somebody actually come up to the plate and write an original story and make it into a movie? I don't want to see the latest pretty boy vomited into a comic book. No more shakey handed attempts at tracing over AND OVER ideas that have been marched before us as if something new has been added. Is it because the Studios are so fearful of another actor's or writer's strike? It is easier to do a tombstone rubbing of whatever sold last year and beef up the special effects. Those are non union ... so far.

Drawergeeks: Giant Monsters. I took a break from the editorial cartoony stuff. I originally was going to do a giant spider, then one of the Godzilla clan, maybe Gigan or Anzilla... then Kong just seemed to speak to me. Maybe it is the Beauty and the Beast story that hooked me? I don't know. It is either lacking due to no background, but having put in several that may not be it. It may be lack of dynamic point of view. In which this piece would be scrapped and an entirely new angle and point of view would need to be thought out. But it has been fun to see where this goes.
