Wonder Woman and Her Sidekicks

November 4, 2011

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of hanging out with a good friend and his awesome four year old daughter.   And art happened.  So, while Dad was cleaning up from tea time, I was was told by the youngster that we’d be illustrating the adventures of Wonder Woman and her two sidekicks, Superman and Batman.

This is Wonder Woman and Superman.  The question is….which was drawn by me (the 32-year-old) and which was drawn by the 4-year-old?

And in this one, we’ve got Batman following his boss, Wonder Woman:

And here is a collaborative portrait of Batman.  That black line in the middle of his head is an invisible deflector designed to protect him from laser blasts.

Fraud

August 25, 2011

Believe it or not, I am not a professional artist.  By day I write about issues in the headlines.

Of course, Goldman settled the fraud charges for a few billion and nobody went to jail.  Typical.

Too Small to Fail

August 2, 2011

This one’s for Dana, who encouraged this blog into existence a few years ago.  She’s going to be taking on a hefty challenge in the next few days.  I know she can do it, because she’s:

And, just for fun, here’s an outtake:

Ultra V.P.

I did this one awhile ago.  I really don’t know what I was going for with it. I think some kind of cross between Dick Cheney and the comic book villain Ultra-Humanite.

 

Steppin’ High Again!

July 14, 2011

I’m back.  Not sure how long it will last – artistic inspiration can be so fleeting! – but for now, I’m back.

So here, let’s celebrate with an old outtake of everybody’s favorite high steppin’ guy!

 

Hopefully lots more new stuff to come over the next few days and weeks!
