For All the Lovers Out There...
...hope you enjoyed this year's mandatory date-night holiday. My celebration of Valentine's Day involved drawing one of my favorite super-hero couples: Big Barda and Mister Miracle. They are pretty damn awesome, designed by the legendary Jack Kirby, and I don't care if they are technically dead right now– their love lives on!

The White Stripes: Inspiration

It was just announced that Jack White's first band, the White Stripes, have officially broken up. The first concert I ever when to with my husband was a White Stripes show in Coney Island. I am a huge Jack White fan, and as much as I love his other bands, I am really bummed that I won't ever see or hear the White Stripes play again. 
Although it was a classic blues song recorded by Son House, the White Stripes' version of "Death Letter" was the first I had heard. It inspired me to make a comic during a really difficult time in my life: my mother's final months fighting cancer. I think creating that comic helped me more than I realized at the time, even though it's a small thing, and I have the White Stripe's music to thank for it. So, for anyone that hasn't seen the comic before here it is, and the song is below.

I've been painting and doing a lot of vector art lately, and felt like using my g-pen and some ink for a change. I've also been drawing lots o' ladies lately, which I love, but I felt like I needed to switch it up and draw some arm hair. Hence: Wolverine!
We all know he's a bad mother, and not one to mess with– especially if you interrupt his cigar break. Wait, what? He doesn't smoke cigars anymore because it's a bad influence on kids? Oh. Well in any case, he could disembowel a baddie in two seconds flat, and if that's not good for the kids I dunno what is!
