bootcamp


In preparation for the 4-page backup story I'll be doing for a future issue of Atomic Robo (published by Red 5 ComicsI'm trying to brush up on my skills in an attempt to look like I know what I'm doing. 

More mucking about in future posts.

(edit: Robo looks so chunky it's not even funny. He must be pounding the hamdingers and hostess snack cakes or something. Eh, it was more of a coloring exercise anyway...)

Iron Man

So I went and saw Iron Man last weekend.

And then I went and saw it again on Tuesday. Because that's how much I enjoyed it. The movie was all-around enjoyable and it was really refreshing to see smart, witty dialogue and a solid story in a comics-based movie.

The ticket was a small price to pay for the two hour geek high I enjoyed after leaving the theater.

Atomic Robo. He's either about to punch something or he's dancing a jig. Possibly both.

New Bedford Whaling Museum

Holy lack of posts Batman. Apologies for the lag. Let's get the ball rolling again, shall we?

Doodle of scrimshaw in my sketchbook.


The Lagoda, the world's largest model ship.


A couple of weekends ago I took a zip car down to visit the New Bedford Whaling Museum. As anyone can tell you, I'm a nut for things historical, and visiting museums are a great way for me to gather reference material for illustrations and fill up the space in my brain allocated to useless trivia. 

Now, I know what you're thinking. But it wasn't like that at all. The museum was well worth the visit. Highlights included beached whale advertisement posters from the 1800's, naturalist's drawings of various whale species, a scrimshaw gallery, and the world's largest model ship.

For the full account of my trip, view my picture album.
