    Doing a little drawing this afternoon.

    This Wolverine is probably indicative of the best I can do drawing from imagination. I see lots of problems--and could make it better if I drew it again--but this is about my best one-off effort.

    Sketching Jade Shade and Chokecherry just to do some poses. Shade should be taller and I don't like what I did with his hands, but otherwise not too bad.

    So I redrew Wolverine. Quickly (about 20 minutes start to finish, half the time of the first one). Not as carefully inked as the previous one, but...

    1. Pose is better
    2. Perspective is better
    3. Anatomy is better

    Using the Apocalypse to sort through a lot of my old stuff, some of which I haven't unpacked since I moved into my house six years ago.

    Found some old art...

    I did this one in the 2nd grade for a fire prevention contest and won an award from the local fire department. I might've been slightly demented as a child....

    Here's a program cover I made for a concert at my high school. Unmistakably my style, though the subject matter probably wouldn't fly nowadays...

    This might be the most important old drawing I have. It's (hopefully obviously) a copy of the Hildebrand Bros. classic Star Wars poster. Note that the colors are all wrong. I made this from a (IIRC) very tiny, very grainy black and white newspaper ad in the movie section. I hadn't even seen the trailer yet!

    Me, age 10, doing what 10-year-old me spent a lot of time doing. That's in my uncle's backyard; he still lives there!

    Wish I could have that hair back. :cry:

    I did have it until my entire comic collection got stolen from my brother's storage about a dozen years back. :sob:

    That angel was Jughead.
    He died of a binge drinking accident.
    It was soda, and he went into a diabetic coma.
