No... not a daily sketch

Since I cannot scan any new daily sketches I decided to post a drawing I did  while ago.  I have limited prints of this available (because not all people remember the village people, and others might disagree with the Hulk being the Cowboy).

Random Observation

I don't get enough credit for not breaking things that I REALLY want to break.

The Eternal Struggle

Wendy (my wife) and her mom are going to DC for a few days, leaving me on my own.  This starts the endless challenge of trying to accomplish everything that I think I should be able to in that time vs. what I actually get done.

They leave tomorrow morning, and while I have to work 4 out of the 5 days they are gone I have a few things set aside to finish.  I also have a lot of tv shows on the dvr, so we will see who wins out.

Maybe if I keep track here of what I accomplish, that will keep me going.

The last daily sketch until I get the %^&*@%!!! Scanner working

Captain Marvel... Photon... Proton... Spectrum.  If Marvel ever settles on a name they have a great character.

So lately I have been posting a lot of Daily Sketches. 
There were a couple of reasons; I have been doing a lot of sketches and I wanted to start posting more of my non comic pages because I thought some of them were pretty good,
 and also because after numerous times of problems with my scanner I thought that if I used it everyday it would not go out again. 
That would have been an incorrect assumption.  The scanner is out again.  I am so sick of this.  I went into the living room after it has happened again and my wife asked me straight away "Something wrong with the scanner?"  Apparently I have a scanner face.

I will work on it again tonight and try to resume the daily sketches.

On a non related but also irritating note, there is a comic show in Winston Salem this Sunday that I couldn't get a table for because I had to work.  I tried to get someone to switch days so I could make it but no one did, until last week when someone had something they needed a day off for and we swapped days.  But by then, the show was sold out, so I still can't make it.  Hopefully I can add something soon; if not my next show isn't until NCComicon in Nov.

Daily Sketch time

I am actually keeping this up.  So far the constant use of the scanner has kept it from further being the bane of my existence. 

Here is Plastic Man, a fantastic character (when they use him).

One of the daily sketches I am posting both here and on my Facebook page.  This one is the best Catwoman who ever purred...
And so far the scanner is working (fingers crossed).  I will try and remember to post a sketch a day.

daily sketches

Trying to remember to post more stuff, particularly sketches.  If I can keep my scanner working ($#!*&!)  then I will post one a day.
This is Orion from Kirby's Fourth World, which would make for a fantastic movie (if Warner Brothers wasn't scared of doing anything other than Batman and Superman).

As of yesterday I have been offered a new job.  It is still in the same general area that I am in (I work in a bank call center to pay the bills, exciting stuff) but will be moving to a new position in a month.  This means my schedule will change and I will have my weekends free (instead of having to work every other Sunday).  The thought that dances in my head is that the comic book conventions that I have been missing because I have to work are now a real possibility!

So, nothing definite yet, but soon Bear Butt Comics will be a much more visible part of a lot more shows. Instead of this being a nagging obsession, maybe I can make it a real priority.

 It is time for me to do more.

Update and stuff

So I have the lettering for issue 10 done, the pencils for the cover done (the third in the bear head silhouette covers), and I am working on a page for a DC Comics contest.  Its a Harley Quinn Contest that has stirred up a bit of controversy among the comic community (but completely unnoticed by anyone else, like most comic book controversies that don't involve Ben Affleck).

Add that to a lot  of sketches that I have been drawing lately (and I mean a LOT, I need a portfolio just for displaying sketches now) and it looks like I have been pretty busy.

If I ever get to another comic show I am ready.  I have a couple I am looking into, and others I am missing because of work (Rassa Frassa frassa).  The next one I have actually scheduled is NCComicon in November.

I have missed far too many shows this year, I need my comic geek fix.  And issue 10 is too far from being finished to appease the obsession.

Issue 10 pencils are done.

Finished penciling the last page last night. Wendy has poured over the pages to see what I may have messed up and I fixed what needed to be so I am moving on to lettering today.  This issue features more Huh art from the 90's so I have 5 pages already lettered and inked, so it feels like I am moving along at a good clip.

Soon the Bootooth Saga, my first epic storyline, will be in full swing.


These are the bios from issue 9.  Starting with that issue I will now include bios of various characters in the back to fill you in on these characters who take up so much room in my head. 

Who do you want to see get a bio next issue?
