I drew the stupidest comic ever way back in December, 2001. It originally ran in the first FLUKE comics anthology, which is pretty much as out-of-print as you can get (I think less than a hundred hand-made copies were assembled). So, here it is for the world to see.

I did the cover for this year’s Flagpole Guide to Athens. Be on the lookout for it around town.

It occurred to me when I was pencilling this comic, the question about wanting to desire or be desired was asked by Eleanor Davis on Twitter awhile back. I’m glad to see it made it back to my subconscious many moons later. The flooded mall part probably came from thinking about Riverbend Mall in Rome, Georgia, where I grew up. It flooded in 1990 and snakes where rumored to be found hiding in the sleeves of jackets long after the water had receded.

We were totally there and it was awesome and the weather was nice and no, I wasn’t in Georgia having a heat stroke and eating a sandwich over the sink.

This was the second large drawing I did for HeroesCon’s Sunday’s Silent Auction. After I finished the Fantastic Four piece, I knocked this one out in about half an hour Saturday afternoon. Not the best set of photos of it, but hey.

Here are more art commissions I did at HeroesCon last weekend. (Part 2)

I went to HeroesCon 2014, and aside from taking photos of my own drawings that I knocked out at the show, I did an awful job at taking photos of all the great people I travelled and shared a hotel with, people I met, friends I hadn’t seen in awhile. So, here are the four photos I took that weekend that weren’t of my stupid drawings. From the top:

Kim Swanson, with his Doctor Who drawing.

Recoil Comics publisher and artist Rich Tommaso.

Underrated cartoonist Sam Spina, during the last hour of the show.

Atomic Elbow editor/publisher and FLUKE coordinator Robert Newsome.

RECOIL AT HEROES CON 2014

richtommaso:

Here are some pics of RECOIL and Patrick Dean’s table at Heroes Con this past weekend. We did really well—sold a lot of Cold Crew comics. I believe they were the best seller next to Vikings’ End. No interest for The Cavalier Mr. Thompson graphic novel, but a lot for The Mysterious Case #1. Proving once again that 24 page comic books are America’s best entertainment value!  ;^)
