MODOK & MOBLOCKHEAD! for Spitballin’ Comics

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.

Marvel High!

High school. Superheroes.

For Grace, a child who has seen High School Musical, like, a shameful number of times, this is a match made in heaven. So, baby, it was time to draw.

I was goofing around on J. Bone’s Web site a few weeks ago and came across this drawing from 2007 — another awesome all-ages concept that never made it to the page. (Grrrrrr!) There must have been something in the air, ’cause Project: Rooftop found it and posted it, too. Man, this is awesome idea! If only … if only… J. Bone, we salute you!

P.S. If you look closely, you’ll see that Gracie is working on joints with lines and circles! The girl is working hard and it’s paying off.

5 Minute M.O.D.O.K.

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 site to 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!

When Captain America throws his mighty shield …

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.

Jack Attack! by Jack Williams (5)

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!
