Quest for Flight Update and A Couple of Sketches

Quest for Flight is the fourth installation of The Tails of the Porkus series and drawing wise it is beginning to wrap up. I have five pages to go with the main story. A small sample of recent sketches.


Some Process Using Sculpey Heads

These are sculpey based heads of the main characters from my newest graphic tale, The Pig Who Would Be King. The reason for these is to try for consistency and alleviate the wondering of those really odd angles that come along now and then.  They are about four inches tall or so and started as aluminum balls to save on sculpey with each going through three to four cooking cycles dependent on features. They took an afternoon of partial attention as the cooking/cooling cycle takes about an hour.

Baltimore Comic Convention 2013 Session

We came, we saw, we plundered. Eight hundred miles and sixty five dollars in tolls later, we have returned safely. Baltimore Comic Con 2013 is now done. So many lessons learned. And so many people talked to and some new readers of Tails of the Porkus acquired. The convention was huge, simply huge. Anything pertaining to comics could be bought. I saw original art pages from comics printed in 1902, the newest toys and any possible thing pertaining to comics that could be bought was there. It was the best con I have been to in quite a while. Fortune will decide whether or not we can return to the port of Baltimore for a return engagement. That would be nice.

The redoubtable navigator, adventurer and powder monkey of The Crimson Cur.

One small benefit of being a vendor is being in the show and looking about before the hordes.

Apparently a relatively rare edition huge Godzilla in lava orange!



Hulk! What else is there to say?

Definitely the coolest back patch I have ever seen.

Toss up of which of these two costumes is the best I saw…..Wesley v.s. The Captain.

A small bit of Baltimore harbor where Sunday supper was held.
