Butterfly for Dean Trippe!

Tonight was a lot of fun. We drew Butterfly for our pal, Dean Trippe, who had a birthday over the weekend. Dean is a terrific guy and a fun, imaginative artist we gush about constantly here. We’re not ashamed. We’re “Trippers”! Yeah, that’s right … it’ll catch on.

My favorite thing Dean’s done lately is a one-page story on Warren Ellis’ blog which, in just three panels, says everything I feel about the current state of DC and comics in general. Brilliant. See it here: http://www.warrenellis.com/?p=13285

Esteban! with Polly Guo

Just a few weeks ago, Grace and I sketched some fun pictures of Thor inspired by artist Polly Guo. You can see them here.

Then, Polly surprised us with an original sketch of her original character, the inestimable ESTEBAN! He’s fun, inventive and reminds me of Groucho Marx … which is always welcome.

My Sister the Freak & Red’s Planet

I am sorry to say that this sketch has been on the shelf for a while. Grace and I worked on it earlier in the year … and its some of her best work … but, for some reason, it didn’t make it onto the blog.

This is our take on characters from two incredible webcomics:

– Mary from Dani Jones’ “My Sister the Freak”
– Red from Eddie Pittman’s “Red’s Planet”

These are really fun, creative comics and I encourage you to check them out today!

And, now a word from Eddie!

Awesome-Man! by Grace (7) & Dad

I must apologize to Paul Abbamondi, creator of the fantastic Web comic, “Supertown.” Paul was awesome and sent a drawing of Ms. Marvel in his “Supertown” style for Grace’s 7th birthday. We took a week off, but wanted to say thank you by drawing Paul’s character Awesome-Man!

Thanks, Paul. We hope to draw with you soon!
