The Story of the Store

I'm lucky enough to work for a company (Hallmark) that allows it's creative community to take 5 days per year to pursue a creative endeavor that the person might not otherwise undertake. I decided to use a couple of #My5Days and create a very personal piece of art-- An important building from my childhood. As I started to draw it, it was feeling a little bland. So, I decided to add written memories into the art, as seen above. I, of course, had more stories than I did image space. Still, it was refreshing to create a piece that was a bit different than my normal work.

Since I worked from a couple of photos that were 40+ years old I decided to look up the building on Google Maps. There have been changes, but it's still there!

New "Super Antics"... MAD magazine #1! If you didn't already know, MAD has been somewhat revamped. I've got a few pages in it! I can't shared them all here, but I can give you the first few panels--

I'm pretty excited about this. I grew up in the boonies of Arkansas, and the only "culture" I saw was that in comic books, Sunday comic strips, and MAD. I honestly think elements from each of these influences show up in everything I do. When I was bored as a young kid, I would fold paper in half, staple it, and draw my own "Mad magazines". I think I might be able to find them. If so, I'll probably post a few here.

Until then, go buy a MAD #1. ON SALE NOW!

I and my uncooperative cat thank you.

Urinals of the Justice League

I had a little free time to draw over the holidays. Sorry.

Marvel Hair Jokes!

It's Inktober!

Or so I'm told. That's when you ink something (everyday?) in the month of October. Well, I didn't do that. However, I did recently come across a page I had penciled in the late 90's. (?) I then thought it would be fun for Fifty-Something Kerry to ink Thirty-Something Kerry. So I did it! Here's the result--

I didn't spend much time on the color. It's Inktober, not Colortober.

Oh! Here's the pencils. I just had a bad xerox copy.

Jack Kirby Spider-Man Pin-up!

Today would have been Jack Kirby's 100th birthday. I wanted to honor his memory. But how?

I've always been a bit fascinated in how he drew Spider-Man. He didn't do very often and it's very different than other artist's interpretations. I actually keep a folder on my computer with images I've found of Kirby's Spider-Man art. So today, I took one of his penciled images, ink and colored it to look like an old Marvel Masterworks pin-up as a tribute, seen above.

Thanks for your imagination, Mr. Kirby.

His original pencils are seen below.

1,000,000 BC Ghost Rider

Anyone remember when I did some fake "What if DC Published Marvel Characters" cover art? I thought I was being silly drawing a caveman version of Ghost Rider.

But now Marvel is coming out with a 1,000,000 BC Ghost Rider!

So now I feel silly for trying to be silly.

Super Antics #12

I like Aquaman, but I suspect this has happened at least once---

As always, if you curious to check my comics in long form, head over to Dirtnap Tales. This week, I hit page 100!
