I'm super proud of that first picture there at the top as I am a backer of Molly Danger by the amazing Jamal Igle. A book based around a super powered 10 year old with a story that's all heart that people can hand to ANYONE to enjoy is just a great project all around.
I got my pledge in and all I want is my copy of the book but sadly with only 4 days left to make the pledge drive Molly is in fact in Danger of coming up short or cutting it very close.
Take a look at the Kickstarter right HERE.
Give it a once over and I'm sure you will want a copy for yourself or that awesome kid in your life that you would love to be able too hand a great story to. And if you can't afford to order your own copy donate a $1 and I'll add you to a list of people that will want to borrow mine. This book looks great and is being created for all the right reasons. To those that read this thing I didn't lead you astray with Princeless and I'm telling you Molly Danger is the next spectacular little girl that you want to support. Plus beautiful art along with a great story what more could you ask for!
If you take the time to go take a look and maybe send a couple dollars their way I say thankee sai. And if not, best not to meet me between here and the clearing at the end of the path.

More rats. They continue. This was a take on a royal guard looking rat soldier. Ended up with something that looks a bit to formal and clean for the comic but it was still fun to draw.
Currently working on an 8 page super hero coloring project that is taken up my week. Gotta get back to it. Hopefully I'll be able to share it soon, for right now it's hush hush.

Again. Again Again. Again again again. Back to the Simplified Anatomy for the Comic Book Artist by Christopher Hart. I am still working my way through this fun little book as a learning tool and as a path to follow as I try to just simply increase my output. Of all the artists out there whose work I love I have seen them say constantly that the only way to really improve is to just keep drawing, so that's the goal. So I keep going. I keep sketching. I'm stubborn. I'm pig and bullheaded. It seems to help with my work outs and hopefully will keep improving my art. It just doesn't always make me popular.
Okay. Back to work.
P.S. The blog is creeping up on 10,000 views and I just wanted to say thanks to everyone that has stopped by to check things out. A little bigger thanks for those that have dropped in comments and +'s. And a huge thanks for those that are subscribed to the blog and hopefully are liking what they see and that's why you are hanging around. It will keep going. Hope you enjoy the ride.

Whilst working on other projects I keep kicking around an idea in my head for a webcomic. The webcomic arena is huge and extremely diverse but as this idea just keeps coming back to me multiple times it might just see the light of day at some point. And if it does I will make sure I have myself a stack of already finished pages so that I can hit the ground running and not slip as from what I have seen the very first thing that real hardcore webcomic fans want is regular updates with no excuses.
So as I was happily working towards another fine fine first place finish of @GeeksWhoDrink over at the lovely @Brewforia I sketched the little lad above to further work on the idea for my webcomic. It might be an all ages idea, I'm not sure yet. Though the sketch above isn't really representative of any of the characters that will be in the story he's more of a starting point.
I am slowing working towards just giving all of my money to Kickstarter. I find way to many cool projects on that thing. Including this one: G.E.E.K. by Matt Cohen and Axel Ortiz.
This looks like it is going to be a blast to read and all of Axel's art so far looks amazing! If you get a chance before Friday Sept 28th 2012 check it out and maybe throw them a couple bucks. You'll get some great swag in return.
