Here’s some Moebius/Otomo fanart I drew tonight to commemorate the Moebius tumbr sparking a new Otomo tumblr. I’m thrilled.
When I got back from Toronto I had 3 serious dudes from England stay with me on their world tour to see comics and video game people. It was fun, they even bought me a pie thing (tart)
Marcel O’Leary http://marceloleary.blogspot.com/
Andrew Porter http://www.phandy.co.uk/
And Joe Sutton http://www.downplusb.co.uk/
Here’s some robots by Andy on the left and Joe on the right.
And I got them to draw in my sketchbook too.
cool dudes indeed.
I’ve been trying to get back into my hermit lifestyle now that I’m done with conventions for awhile.
I reread some Ike Garuda tonight:
Garuda is a book I got in some 50cent bin a million years ago, there were 2 issues but I’ve only ever seen the 1st. It’s good sci fi detective comics. I like that genre, I want more of it.
It’s written by Elane Lee who worked on Starstruck with Kaluta and drawn by James Sherman who did some good fill in issues of American Flagg and Dreadstar.
This comic has a cool way of traveling from planet to planet in it. They destroy your body and regrow a new you in a womb tank thing at your destination with your memory transported into it. The main characters body dies at least 5 times in the first issue jumping from place to place.
Here’s him comming out of the womb. I like that even though he’s got the wolverine style crotch hiding shadow his dong won’t stay hidden. “in your face bub!”
And I like this scene of getting a lady out of a suitcase:
solid stuff. here’s some more pages.
I was also looking at an old Heavy metal from 91. I like the art in this Juan Gimenez Ca-rt-oon story. I prefer this style to the newer color Gimenez stuff I’ve read– it feels like the space baby of early Manara and Otomo.
And I like that the main lady in it has a mullet.
That’s where I’m at today, more mullet, more sci fi detectives. please and thank you.
I managed to dig up a picture of a preto magix thing I was obcessed with when I was a kid. It’s the ewok village printed on a board game style board that you’d rub tranfer on ewoks whereever you wanted on it. I think this thing is at the heart of my interst in doing wheres waldo style drawings.
Here’s Rumiko Takahashi being an OG. I like that she has nerd buttons on her shirt.
some All a-Round Intercept and Escort Lady Ariel .
and a young Optimus prime.
Also if anyone is intersted in buying pages from me, Stokoe, Marley or Marian there’s new one’s up here:
young optimus get out of my mind.
