My Melon contribution...

Drawing the female figure / face is hard. Every time I draw a woman she ends up kinda sorta looking like my wife. I don't even know if this could pass as a pinup since its only half a lady. Liked how it turned out tho. Did this while doing some film-noir research for Baro. See the cross-promotional thing going on in the background? :)

If you weren't able to get a copy of Melon last Saturday at Komikon. Too bad. I don't have a copy as well since I was too busy with my husband-soon-to-be-dad-pre-baby duties during the weekend. Get a copy at the next 'Kon!

P.S. - Thanks Happy Lockjaw crew! Benj! Mike!

Wasn't doing anything productive in the office today so I drew this... more brush pen fun (added the text using MS Word & some little touch ups using MS Paint)! Yes, I have a man-crush on Yojimbo. I love the movie (& Akira Kurosawa) to bits! Inspired by seeing Eric Bonhomme's amazing Kurosawa posters.

Summer Komikon 2012 is this Saturday! Not sure if I'll be able to attend tho... will be busy packing stuff up. But the QBCCC crew will be there selling stuff. There might still be copies of ???#2 left & I did a piece for Melon, a pinup zine! Thanks to the Happy Lockjaw guys (Benj!) for inviting me to contribute. Here's a teaser...

The zine features 30 or so local komiks guys & gals drawing pictures of pretty ladies. Grab a copy at the 'Kon!

Tony DeZuniga (1941-2012)

Met him at one of the 'Kons last year. Very nice, accommodating guy & one hell of an artist. Will miss seeing him at the 'Kons. Rest in peace Mang Tony...

More fun with my brush pen (& markers)! Here is my oh so sucky rendition of... Iron Fist! I love the sketchy look. My anatomy is bad. I should really stop doing these things & go back to doing pages of my comic...

Hell-o! Bored in the office so I tried out my new brush pen (with some markers)...  I love you brush pen! Such a fun thing to use. Thanks to Jim for the recommendation :)

Another poster for Baro Investigations... sort of lost my momentum drawing pages. Needed to get motivated again. Been looking at film noir / 40's - 60's movie posters & they are inspiring! Particularly these Polish movie posters from the 40's - 80's.

Free! Comic! Book! Day!

Free comics! Will try to be at Comic Odyssey this Saturday & sell (sorry, would love to give them out for free but it's for a good cause) the remaining copies of my comic, ???#2 & maybe copies of the QBCCC as well. Sales will be donated to the Mang Tony DeZuniga "medical fund".

Lots of stuff happening at the local comic shops this FCBD. Do drop by if you have nothing else to do this weekend. Get free stuff & help a comic book legend!

Here's a strip from ???#2 :)
