We love following daily and weekly sketchblogs and have made many friends at incredible blogs like Cornered, ComicTWART and Bristolwhip. So, we were excited to surf our way over to a new sketchblog with some awesome new talent — Spitballin’ Comics. Check them out now!
We were doubly excited when Michael Walsh asked us to participate in this week’s theme … Jack Kirby’s supreme creation – MODOK!
Grace had a lot of fun with this one … and I think it shows in her work. Great expression. Good pencils and tight inks. I was still having fun with my classic funnies/comic book character mash-ups and decided to blend everyone’s favorite blockhead, Charlie Brown, with everyone’s favorite flying head.
WOW! The awesome lads and lassies across the pond in South Wales combined two of my favorite things in one amazing post to create the pulse-pounding incredibleness that is … 5-Minute M.O.D.O.K. Do yourself a favor and head on over to their Web siteto view the works of a group of friends who get together to indulge their love of sketching and comics. This post … and the fact that they shoot Dr. Who over there … is enough to make me want to move to Wales! Thank you, guys!
And, for extra good measure, here’s my contribution to the 2011 March M.O.D.O.K. Madness, the brainchild of our pal, Brendan Tobin!
I am excited to say that our pals, the wonderful Wahl Family , are back. Maddy is an incredible artist and Erin and George add great whimsy as Cap punches MODOK in the face and encourages you to support your country! Welcome back and keep ’em coming, guys.
A few days ago, Grace and Cate had a play date with their buddies Ella and Jack and, of course, superhero drawing was in effect. Jack gave us the drawings below. And, I must confess a partucular fondness for his M.O.D.O.K. Go Jack!
