Today is my son Devon’s birthday. This is a very old photo of him that recently turned up. He’s posing with an old friend of the family outside the awesome House of Frankenstein Wax Museum in Lake George, NY. A very fond memory. He’s a big guy now, but just as cute and lovable. I love you Devon, very much.
The next comic is in the coloring stage. Meanwhile, I thought I’d give you a sneak-peek at a bit of fan art I’m doing for one of my all-time favorite naughty, NSFW webcomics, The Blonde Marvel. A normal suburban working mom, with a believable (though admittedly super-busty) middle-aged all-American woman’s figure, is endowed with super powers. VERY ENDOWED (sorry!)
The premise, from the “About” page:
“The idea was to take a female character who is usually marginalized and who at best is relegated to “supporting character” status and give her the lead. Most super-women are young, single and supermodel thin. The Blonde Marvel however is in her late thirties, married with kids, and heavy. What would happen? How would society perceive her? How would her fellow heroes behave? What does her family have to say about the whole thing?”
I love it that.
The above link will send you to one of the safer pages of a charmingly retro-styled story. I would urge you to go back one page to the cover of that story, which is not as safe, but delightfully twisted.
I will update again later, when I’ve finished coloring this. I’m also hoping B.M. will grace our humble comic with a super-cameo soon, though I’m not sure if Franky can handle her!
Forget to pick up a Halloween costume? Or just feel like being a little more MONSTROUS than usual today? Right-Click the picture and “save linked file as…” the printable pdf. Print it out, cut it out, and wear it out! Be Franky for a Day.
The first five people to send me a photo of themselves doing something or being somewhere interesting get an original sketch (folks outside North America must pay their own shipping via Paypal)
THIS Thursday, 10/27/11, I will be the “special guest” chatting LIVE in the 3rd annual Chat and Scream Halloween Chatcast!
Comic Chatcast is a place to discuss comics live with creators and fans. It’s a chat, but there’s pictures too! They’ve had some great artists from some outstanding webcomics. I feel lucky to be included!
You can ask me any question, from the geeky technical to the uncomfortably personal. No telling what I’ll say. I’m going to be popping in some never-before-seen pictures in the chat too.
