It's Mark from "Battle of the Planets". Or "Gatchaman". Or "G-Force". Just wanted to draw something cartoony and in a different style than I usually do, just to stretch my skills. I drew this by hand and then completed it in Adobe Illustrator.
Here are a couple of recent pieces I did. One is for a family in our neighborhood. They have a big vegetable garden in their backyard and wanted an illustration of them in front it. The other is for another family in our neighborhood who's daughter was turing one year old and they wanted a custom coloring page for the party. I've also added a shot of the pages the kid's colored.
This time I was invited out to the Barnes and Noble at Preston and Royal for their "Get Pop Cultured" event Marvel Comics Day. The turnout was about half that of Firewheel but the neighborhood skews a little older and they don't have a huge kid clientele. They told me they were very surprised to get event the amount they got for the demo.
Of course we only drew Marvel characters for this one. We knocked out Spider-man, Captain America, Ant-Man and Loki. Heather and Jack came again, we all had a fun time, Jack once again did great, drawing the whole time and was really into it. Thanks to the staff who had me out, they were all very cool and couldn't have been nicer to us. Go buy some books there.
Had a fun time out at Barnes and Noble at Firewheel today. Had great group of kids (and a couple of parents) drawing DC Comics characters along with me. We drew Batman, Joker (with Harley Quinn) and then a girl asked if we could draw Clayface. Too cool. Thanks to everyone we came out and thanks to Barnes and Noble for inviting me. Come see me next weekend at the Preston Royal Shopping Center location when i do it again. This time for Marvel Comics.
I was really proud and happy that Jack sat through the whole thing and drew the entire time even though he's seen me draw hundreds of time. He was so into his drawing he didn't even get up for a group photo as evidenced below.
