English and Americans and David Bowie


First, check it out. That MYSTERY! comic I was talking about is about David Bowie, this is the first panel of the second page. It took me a while to draw but I think it was worth it.

Also, looking back it seems almost all of the comics I've done that aren't about women beating up monsters are about the English. (caution on the links, some of it is old and I'm not really proud of much of it) I'm not really an Anglophile at all, I should point out. And I was pretty unhappy with that comic about the Krays as I was making it, actually; at the time I was also reading Camorra and about some of the American gangsters of the same time, which really put the lie to the bullshit around the Krays and the stuff that supports their legend, like The Long Good Friday. The Krays and many of the other gangsters of the time were just celebrities, all the glamor of mobsters with only a hint of the real violence used by the Camorra in Naples or even the American mob, for that matter. A frightened American telling Bob Hoskins that he's scared of all this violence in England before Bob Hoskins gets killed by the IRA is all just so much nationalist bullshit.

Which really has nothing to do with this current biographical comic about this English man. David Bowie build his stardom over actual musical talent and to a lesser extent, the ability to wear anything and look good in it. I have nothing against him, he's great.

Boston

More unfinished. This would have been the background for a figure.

Witty Unpredictable Talented And Natural Game


Drawing, never finished.

And, ain't there a woman I can sock on the jaw?

The character I draw these pin-ups of, over and over again. I mentioned before that I was working on a comic with her in it, but at this point I wonder if the whole mythology and ideas in my head are too convoluted for anyone but me to make sense of.

All In the 'gether now, swordsmen forever now

I guess I can say this now, doing a comic with Sean (T) Collins, notable comics blogger and writer for a number of fine publications. Read some of his comics here. It's an honor.

This drawing has nothing to do with it, can't say what the comic is about yet IT'S A SECRET OK.!

Piano Wire up the Abdomen



Did this comic while I was still in SVA, only posting it now that I'm busy with something else.

Halloween post, sort of.



Sort of a Halloween post. Especially if you like to dress up like someone from the early 20th century or are scared of women or black people.

New and Old



The ipod thing is something I reworked, toning down the background.

Just got my computer back from the shop, which is why I've not been posting. It hasn't been a good summer for computers, but at least now was a good time for it to happen.

Getting my Crumb on.



Seeing 'Funny People' made me think about Jews for some reason, and how although I am one the only Jewish character I've made, I think, was in this comic I did for this class at SVA (I put the two first pages of it up here) and which I'm re-drawing here, but with the design changed. Returning to the comic and the characters is one of the ongoing projects I mentioned in a post a few weeks back.

Continues


Low content mode continues. Something will come out of all these old-timey characters, I swear.

Short Returns


If there are any people who read this who still remember or care about the beginning pledge to post once a week, sorry, have been very busy the past few weeks. I do have a few comics projects going on right now and I'll put at least 2 of them online at some point. But for now have another background free character design.
