That time I drew aninventoryofthepossible as a sailor senshi and why didn’t anyone stop me?
Made dumb joke on Twitter about this Witchsona thing going around how mine’d just be Dr. Fate in a crappy flannel shirt.
10 minutes later I drew this.
Doodled Daniel Bryan last night in an attempt to cheer myself up.
Didn’t work but at least the picture didn’t come out too terribly.
Supaidaman sketch that I went sort of nuts with in an attempt to “age” stuff in Photoshop.
I was asleep for like an hour last night and woke up to inexplicably rework plans for a D-Man cosplay from like a year ago. Went less superhero and more indy wrestler with it, and I think it’ll work better like this?
"Ride the spandex tiger". The hell is wrong with you, Joe?
Quickie Spider-Woman warm-up sketch! Love the character but never drawn her before.
…And I kinda didn’t realize how much focus the yellow parts draw to her lady places until I drew this.
I had a really rough weekend and ended up going off on a weird tangent last night on Twitter about friendship and junk and how my friends are my heroes which I guess is kind of owed an explanation.
I’ve talked about this a little but, in July 2012, I was in an extremely bad place mentally and just feeling completely hopeless and that shit was not going to be getting better. So I tried to kill myself. Sleeping pills. Enough that I thought would do the job but not enough to be missed. You know. No mess. No fuss. Just drag the body away. Well… since I’m writing this, you can probably guess that the sleeping pills didn’t take. I woke up at like noon and was sick the rest of the day. Yeehaw.
What I’ve never told anyone is that I had been planning to try again.
So skip ahead to September that year. I’d decided that I would do it after SPX. Sort of a last hurrah, etc. And then something happened.
Saturday afternoon, I was sitting around with Brandon and Marty and Marty’s now-fiancee Sam of SUPER ART FIGHT, THE GREATEST LIVE ART COMPETITION IN THE KNOWN UNIVERSE kind of hanging around them since I was filling in last minute in the SAF show after the Ignatz awards that night. I was feeling incredibly awkward about the whole thing and, as I tend to do, apologizing incessantly for everything I was doing.
Finally Brandon, being as blunt as only Brandon can, said to me “Just relax. We’re your friends. You don’t need to apologize.”
So that was when it hit me: “I have friends. I have people who care about me. Like… bunches of them. And I was going to kill myself . Oh fuck. I need help.”
And so I’m still here.
So long story short, I wasn’t being at all facetious when I said that friendship saved my life. Friends saved my life and that’s why they’ll be my heroes and I’ll pretty much always look up to them. All of them.
So Super Art Friend and one of my art heroes Jamie has been drawing this really kickass series of anthrobromorphized super robots and I decided to take a crack at doing one of Leopardon from the Japanese Spider-Man series.
He came out looking a hell of a lot like friend and also art hero Chance! and wow this got weird fast. Sorry guys.
