When the computer's away...

...the watercolors come out to play! I went to Maine last weekend for some lo-fi tree-time (and to visit my family). Right before I left, I looked in the magical drawer of mystery art supplies and though "ooo, watercolors!". This is the only thing I managed to crank out, and I obviously wasn't up for the challenge of painting my surroundings (sorry, pine trees). I've been drawing comics everyday, even when there are no seats on the subway! But I'm still trying to catch up with the scanning and the posting (I'm not doing too great a job, but whatever IT"S HOT OUTSIDE!). Here's a few about bugs, cats (specifically Professor Rufus Devious), and the wonders of the morning:

The great outdoors...

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to camp out on one of the Boston Harbor Islands (thanks to my awesome job!). I had a swell time with my new (and not-so-new) co-workers. There aren't many things in this world that I love more than camping; I wish I could do it more often.

Yes, that ocean was mighty cold. Still not as cold as Maine, though. Speaking of which, that's where I'm headed for the weekend! Yay! Maine! Hopefully I'll return with some rugged, outdoors-y comics for you to look at!

Lightning, pizza, dinosaurs and donuts.

Due to the hotness and humidness (note: "humidness" = not a word) of the weather, we've had some pretty rockin' thunderstorms. This one was witnessed on my ride home from work; it's a view from one of the bridges that connect Boston to Cambridge (the one the red line goes over). Subway patrons remarked that the coulds were "apocalyptic" in nature.

Ah, Pinnochio's pizza. One of my favorite places to get pizza in MA. Boston's pizza selection is tricky for a pizza-snob like myself...after living in Providence, RI for years, you get pretty picky about your pizza (Providence pizza = delicious).

They gave me a free slice seeing as how every guy who works there saw it happen (I'm sure the look on my face was of sheer terror post-pizza plunge).

Let's hope these are somewhat recognizable..Any guesses as to which movies they are from? The last one might be a bit tricky.

I worked a Saturday a few weeks back. There's nothing quite like donut holes and coffee on a Saturday morning, even if it only happens once a year!

About two weeks ago...

A (somewhat) work-related comic:

I've been toying with the idea of making a "Tide Pool Exploration" Guide in the form of a'd be about animals from the northeast U.S. - sorry all you west coasters; I know you've got some sweet marine animals out there.

Right before I left for Heroes Con:

And on the plane ride home...

Does anyone else ever get EXTREMELY gassy when they fly? I think it has something to do with the pressure in the cabin, or maybe I'm just getting old (and you fart more when you're old, right? Isn't that what the term "old fart" is all about?). Enough about flatulence. Hope every one had a nice long weekend...

Catching up...

I'm still a few weeks behind in posting one of these a day...I've been drawing three or four on average. I don't like to post them all at once (::ahem:: ), but I'll try and do a few a day until I get caught up, and them I'll try and post what I've done for the day, on that day. I'd also like to start coloring these every once and a while; I've been felling a little rusty since the completion of the themes.

I don't have headache now, but I did when I drew this.
