Merry X-Mas!
Ok, ok it's been a while. I just wrapped up work on a massive awesome freelance animation project. So, hopefully it'll be a very short break before the next project rolls my way.

In the meantime:

Hey! There's a Comic with my Name in it!
A Devil's Due comic book called Ninjatown: The Adventures of Wee Ninja: Volume 1 just came out last week. I finally obtained a copy yesterday. I'm told Graham Crackers Comics has been selling out of them.
It features stories and art by the wolrd famous dynamic duo Franco Aureliani and Art Baltazar. There is also art (cover too!) by Bill Halliar. Then there's a ten pager by yours truly in the middle.
Check it out, won't you?

We’re Gettin’ the Band Back Together!

After a long hiatus, I believe it is time to revive our once a month sketchbook night.
So, first we need to decide on a central location (with good seating, lighting, food and booze) in the Chicago area since everyone is spread out. All suggestions are welcome, so let's hear your thoughts.
We also need to think of a name!

Doctor! Ain't there nuthin' I can take?
I said, Doctor! To relieve this Dalek ache?

Back from Con!
Holy buckets, what a weekend! Big thanks to all who stopped by our little table. Even bigger thanks to those of you who gave me money! Bwah!
Also, thanks to the Disney people for the swell party; Mr. Tennapel for hanging out with us at said party; DC for taking the time to meet with me; both Ape and Boom! for probably wanting me to draw stuff for them; and all the awesome people we met and hung out with!

For those of you who didn't come and were interested in picking up a copy of "Peeking Duck", I will be setting up a little store for it soon. It'll be $15 (US only at the moment) and I'll do a sketch in it for you.
Since I sold out of so many and since I had many people ask about it, I will eventually set up a store for prints as well.
If anyone's really interested, I have the last 2 copies of my first skethcbook, "Gorilla Salad" left (EVER!). That's $10; drop me a line if you wants one.

Wizard World Chicago
I got a last minute table at Wizard World Chicago (June 26th - 29th) that I will be sharing with Bill Halliar and Melly Curphy (Miss Monster).
Artist's Alley table 5806.
I doubt my new book "Peeking Duck" will be back from the printer on time. Maybe I can set up pre-orders or something. But I will have new prints, buttons and the few remaining copies of "Gorilla Salad".

Pac-Man Fever!
Guess what? I got a fever! A fever to finish my new sketchbook by con!
With that, I'm dusting off a few things that weren't completed until now.

Duck n' Cover!
I just painted the cover to this year's con sketchbook "Peeking Duck". I never painted in gouache before. I think it's also the first thing I've painted in 18 years.

The Curse of Greg Brady!

Beware the teen idols you pick up on the beach!

In other news, we are supposed to be getting a table at Wizard World Chicago (June 26th - 29th). By "we" I mean myself, Bill Halliar and Melly Curphy (Miss Monster).
I'll update when I have a locale.

Tiki Update & Comics News

First, here's a quick update on the Tiki piece I've been working on between everything else and trying to assemble the "Peeking Duck" sketchbook in time for con.

In just a couple weeks (June 8th??) Devil's Due will be publishing a book called Ninja Town featuring Wee Ninjas.

I did vector cleanup over the layouts of a 10 page story by the Energizer bunny known as Art Baltazar

Also joining the fray for a couple Baltazarian tales is the oval seat warmer known as Bill Halliar

Check it out, won't you?

Sleepy Limbs
This is a rough pencil test done in Flash for April's 11 Seond Club. But between freelance, charity walks and a nasty stomach flu I won't finish it in time. So here it is as is:

March of Dimes Final Update
A very sincere thank you to all of you who supported us and the March of Dimes March for Babies. We are humbled by the outpouring of love and generosity. Throughout our experience in the NICU we relied on so many of you for support and sometimes just a diversion, and we are so grateful that you are still thinking of our little ones. It was wonderful to be able to give back to an organization that has provided so much research and medical advances for premature babies. In total we raised $910!
Thanks again!-Bob

March of Dimes UPDATE
Well, in less than two weeks we not only managed to meet our goal of $500, but exceed it by over $200! Big thanks to all who have contributed so far!

Sunday, March 30, 2008

On Sunday April 27th, my wife will be walking for the March of Dimes in memory of our triplets Zach, Alex and Marianna. Her goal for the 6.2 mile walk is $500. Every little bit helps and anything you could give would be most appreciated.

Forgotten Icon
I did this Tony the Tiger a couple years back in an experiment to merge classic and modern Tony designs. It seems I never finalized it and well, other things come up and some ideas fall by the waste side. I think I was never happy with how the shading turned out.

I finally got back around to coloring it! Next!

Supergirl Sketch
I'm attempting to get back in the habit of semi-regular sketching since our baby arrived.
Not to mention prepare for con season and hopefully assemble a new sketchbook.
I did use a photo reference so I feel she's a little stiff. I think I might want to go back and take another whack at it for a more cartoony feel.
