Fun Art Friday! - Girls and Their Dragons


Welcome to Fun Art Friday!

This weekend is a big weekend for girls and their dragons. How to Train Your Dragon 2 comes out and Game of Thrones wraps up with its season finale. So, I felt I needed to spotlight how awesome it is that girls/women riding dragons is a thing now.

Sure, HtTYD has Hiccup as the lead, and Daenerys is part of a large ensemble cast, but both of these characters are great examples of strong women in fantasy and they can both bring the fire without needing the boys!

This artwork is available NOW as a t-shirt and is on SALE for only $14 through the weekend. So go show your support for these fiery ladies and enjoy a good geek weekend!

Fun Art Friday! - Rocket Jayne!

It's Fun Art Friday! If you don't know what you're looking at go watch Firefly and read Guardians of the Galaxy now! Both of these sci-fi properties are really worth spending some time with. I'm pretty excited about the Guardians movie coming out in August (right before my birthday!) A lot of my non-comic reading friends are scratching their heads at it, but, man it has so much potential to be one of those really fun sci-fi movies, like Fifth Element or Firef;y/Serenity (except for that part at the end of course). So I dressed Rocket Raccoon up like Jayne Cobb.

If you like this, you need to get it on a T-Shirt! I've opened up a Teepublic store and this is my first experiment with it. If it does well, I will put up more.

I also want to acknowledge the amazing Skottie Young, whose design of Rocket I used for inspiration. Go check out his stuff and send some love his wayl

Fun Art Friday - The War Doctor

The War Doctor

This week's Fun Art Friday is The War Doctor, portrayed by John Hurt in the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special, The Day of the Doctor.  

I am a huge Doctor Who fan.  I watched reruns of the Tom Baker and Peter Davidson eras on PBS as a kid and rediscovered the series when it came back with Christopher Eccleston.  So, I was pretty excited to be around for the 50th anniversary.  But, I was skeptical.  Rumors were flying around about no previous Doctors being involved, that they were going to mess with the regeneration order, and that, as the crazy fans are want to scream, Steven Moffat had messed everything up.

Instead, we were given a great episode with a solid story that hearkened to the past and resolved plotlines from the present.  Plus, there in the middle of it all was this new incarnation of the Doctor and he was so great I wish we could have more of him.  Getting John Hurt to play him was genius, he fit the role perfectly.

So, I decided to draw him!  I didn't try to go too realistic.  I wanted to draw him in my cartoon style and have to say I'm pretty pleased with the results.  So much so, that I may do the rest of the Doctors down the line!  So stay tuned for more, Whovians!  I did the side profile thing as a sort of portrait study, but I'm thinking about trying a full body animated pose at some point.

As always, thanks for stopping by and make sure to check out all my previous Fun Art Fridays and my comic, Chronicle!  If you like what you see here, please share it on social media and spread the word!

(**And, yes, that special appearance at the end of The Day of the Doctor kicked me right in the nostalgia so much I may have had a happy tear or two.**)
