Spears and brains


With June winding down, I'm getting back into making comics. Here's a page (penciled rough) from a comic I'm working on with Dan Mazur (writing). It's shaping up to be a 10-pager, which is one of the longer comics I've tackled in some time.

And then there is this brain guy.



He's been throwing a fit because all he does is stand in as my Twitter/Facebook/Flickr (etc) avatar. So I'm working him into a comic...or two. If he behaves.

One last thing:

A public service announcement.

My hard drive crashed over the weekend. I put it to bed and it died in its sleep. All my data was wiped out, just like that—ZAP! Fortunately, I had all my artwork backed up on an external drive.

So PLEASE, back up your work. It happens.

That brain dude is one of your most inspired drawings ever. I like how bold and loose and aggressive your pencil roughs are.

Thanks, Sherm! I'm working on my first comic featuring ole braino right now. Should have something to show for in a week or so.

Poor guy doesn't have a name, still. But few of my characters do these days.
