Fantasy Basketball

Last year, the best comic I read was Fantasy Basketball by Sam Bosma.

Back when I first read it I wanted to draw ‘He of the Giant Steps’ because he’s an awesome bad guy, well I never drew anything cause reasons but for Sam’s birthday he said all he wanted was FB fan art (and a magical cintiq) so I figured now is a good a time as any to sketch something out.

If anyone out there hasn’t read Fantasy Basketball, go get it here.
Nothing bores me more than basketball, but this comic was amazing.
Anyways, Happy Birthday Sam!

Camilla's Second Birthday




My daughter's favorite movie is Ponyo (with Totoro in second place) so we had a Ponyo themed party this year for her and for my main gift I decided to redraw a scene from the movie (altered a bit) with her hanging out with Ponyo and Sosuke. She might not fully appreciate it till she's older, but she sure was happy seeing it and knew it was her with them.
 

For anyone who has kids and hasn't seen Ponyo I highly recommend it. It's an interpretation of Hans Christian Andersen's story The Little Mermaid (not like Disney's Little Mermaid). And whats great is that there's no villains or scary bits in it like a lot of Disney movies have that parents usually fast forward through, its just a fun little love and adventure story.

Original Art Sale


Tax season hit me harder than expected this year, and now I'm scrambling to get extra funds before the 15th to pay off what I owe.
So I've reduced prices by half or lower for everything in my Etsy store from now till April 15th.
If you've ever wanted an original piece from me, now would be the ideal (and most helpful) time to buy.

And if you email me any character you like, I'll throw in a quick 3x5 sketch of them with any order.

Thanks!!

Sleep Paralysis: What It Is and How To Stop It



I make a lot of book covers as I'm sure you've seen, but few are as meaningful to me as this one. I was thrilled to be able to work on it with Chris White, as its a fantastic and coherent explanation of Sleep Paralysis that answers the questions on what it is and provides a solution that actually works, even though Science teaches there is no solution.

If you experience any form of sleep paralysis and are like me having read all the explanations on whats going on and why it happens etc. but felt like the answers are mixed, contradictory, unhelpful or don’t even apply to you, then you should read this book. It details the only answer that works.

Its out now on Amazon

And there’s a free audiobook version online here

This video is the short version of ‘how to stop it’ as well

Joker

 
And so we end the week with The Joker.
 
I love how he doesn't really have a name to go along with his origin story, he was just always known as The Joker. I went the literally insane route with him, picturing him escaped from Arkham Asylum but actually embracing his insanity and wearing it like a badge with his slung-over-the-shoulders-straight-jacket-I'm-a-handsome-fellow look. He wants to look dapper and there is a purposeful nod to Buster Keaton here if you can see it. 
 
Personally I've never been a fan of him having clown make-up on (though I do like his bleached-by-chemicals skin color) so I wanted to avoid what we normally see, yet still have the signature red 'lips' look. So I thought, instead of an exaggerated smile or weird scars or whatever, lets just get rid of his lips entirely (boy, he'd have some fun enunciating) resulting in a perpetually ghoulish grin. I'd love to see cosplay of him if it were possible to recreate his face like I've done here.

Mr. Freeze


Freeze was the first idea I had for this whole thing and he may or may not be my favorite because of it. Since I thought about him so longer before I started drawing I ended up fleshing him out more in my head than any of the other characters. Even figuring out what he looks like under this armor (which you can see a bit of in the concepts) though I knew that wouldn't be shown in the final piece. 

In my version his accident obviously caused a lot more damage than just lowering his body temperature to where he always needs to be in a cryogenic suit. He's almost more machine than human now with a fading mind and cold heart (literally?). But by wearing his old overcoat and Nora's scarf it makes him feel attached to his former life and not be lost completely.
