So I’m not sure if I can post the drawing yet but I think it’s okay to talk about. The PR firm for Awesome Con (coming soon) asked local Indy artists to draw local media personalities as superheroes or zombies or something nerdy like that. I just sent in my submission and hope to be able to say that it was accepted and that I can talk a little more about it and show the picture soon. Fingers crossed!
As part of my student teaching I am covering career and college preparation and I am working on a test for the students to take on Friday. As an extra credit on the test I made this cartoon. Transferable skills are just what they sound like, skills that you can transfer from one job to another and the challenge here is for the students to think up skills that Batman has that will transfer to the police department. I chose Batman as I think he is popular enough that the students (7th graders) will have some idea of what he does and how his skills transfer to police work. It’s just extra credit and they can choose not to do it if they wish I just thought it would be a fun break after taking the test.
Check out www.deadcatcomix.com as I just added a lot of new material. On the Personal Appearance page I added all of the drawings I have done at my past personal appearances! Plus I have a recap of my experience at Cincy Comic Con on the Blog page in case you are interested in hearing about that.
I know I’ve been talking a lot about Cincy Comic Con but I wanted to take a minute to sing the praises of artist Dave Wachter. He was a joy to talk to, friendly and engaging. I saw Breath of Bones on his table which I had seen on arcaneimages tumblr and was eager to check it out so I stopped to look. I remarked that his work reminded me of John Severin’s work and we fell into discussing Severin and Dave’s own amazing art. I not only picked up Breath of Bones but also his western book The Guns of Shadow Valley which is absolutely gorgeous. I highly recommend both and am now a huge fan of Dave’s much as I have been of Severin’s over the years. I hope to see a lot more stuff from him!
