The $500 comic

I mentioned earlier that I wan a national award for best comic in a college newspaper, or at least the best of those that were entered into the competition. At any rate, I got an award that I thought had a cash award with it. I got the award, but there was no money. I waited and waited and waited, but nothing came. So after a few months I gave up, thinking it must have been some sort of mistake, but alas, I received a check in the mail just yesterday for $500! There was money attached to the award! I was pretty excited to say the least. Since I'm not currently pursuing comics right now, I think it's funny that I actually won money for this comic. So I'm posting it just to show people that this comic is worth $500. And to think, when it first ran in the paper, most people didn't think it was that funny. Honestly, I don't blame them. Ha ha!

Just a sketch

These lil' pictures here are just sketches. When I was trying to figure out what the people in Ancient China might look like I came up with these characters. I liked them enough that I'm posting them on the blog.

Here is the sketch of my latest project, or at least half of it. I have about this much inked in of the other half. I ran out of good ink brushes, so now I'm working on sketching anther scenario while I wait for the brushes. The other scenario that I'm working on is Ancient China. I'm pretty excited about that one. About this image though, don't try looking for Timmy yet. He's actually in the other half. But you can try to spot the "hiding" dodo birds. Its really hard to find these, isn't it? Not!

Portrait of a Sister

Just for kicks and in case anyone actually reads these posts, here is a new image to look at. It's a cartoon of my sister and her two girls. Her husband is not in the image, because the picture was a Christmas gift for him. I think she intended for him to put the framed picture in his office so he can look at his wife and kids all day at work. It's a sweet idea, I know.
