Day 24: Sunday Selfie! KISSY.

My own characters for Sunday Selfie! They're from an old manuscript (not the current comic), but it's one that I really love. I've been away from it for so long that if I picked it up again now, it might be awkward. Still, I really should call them...when they're not busy making out, of course.

Day 23: Tiger Lily!

I was really excited to see that NBC made a good move by casting as actual Native American actress Alanna (Alanna!) Saunders to portray Native American inspired character "Tiger Lily" in their upcoming live action Peter Pan. Woo! Good job, NBC! Now bring back Community.

Day 21: The Gentleman Farmer

So today we visited Annapolis and took a tour of the state capitol. It was the place that George Washington conceded his position as Commander of the Rebel Alliance or something, I don't know; I was chasing kids around the nice paintings. Anywaaaaaays, apparently after his big concession party and tear rousing speech, the guide said he "got on his horse and rode briskly back to Mt. Vernon to be a gentleman farmer and never command soldiers again."

I got the feeling he was really excited to be done with all the warring and happy to go back home. To Mount Vernon, Old Nelson!!

(yes, George Washington's favorite horse was named Nelson. Ha-ha!)

Day 20: Mira Poppins!

This thing took forever to color. Ugh. I'm never doing this again.

Just kidding, see ya frigging tomorrow.

Day 19: Lemon out!

Had a nutty hard time deciding on someone to do, so I reverted to an old favorite (although the costume might not be as fun as Korra or whatnot): Tina Fey as Liz Lemon from 30 Rock. There it is. Moving on, Lemon out!

Day 18: La Medusa

Did you know the Spanish word for jellyfish is Medusa?!? The things we read in Spanish toddler books!

And pardon the color on this. The scanner is so far away, I'm drawing in bed, my phone/camera is here and I am sooooo comfy right now...

Day 17: Sunday Selfie! Sphinx says salutations.

I suppose this could have doubled as an actual character, but this particular one is from an ongoing project. So. There's that. Bye.

Day 16: Dorothy bypasses Oz for Nirvana

Went to the Museum of American History today to show the kiddos Dorothy's famous red slippers. On the way home, we listened to the Youngbloods and felt pretty chill. Thus spake mah brain.

Day 15: The incomparable Wedge Antilles

Poor Wedge. Wouldn't being the "only minor character to survive three films" make him a major character by now? Please be in Episode 7. I miss you.

Day 13: Poison Ivy and Groot

Poison Ivy and Groot! (Two characters...does that count as two days?)

Don't be fooled by her girlish glee, she can be pretty manipulative with him.

Day 12: Condorman!

One of the world's greatest superheroes, Condorman! Also, despite this being a favorite movie of mine as a kid, it wasn't until I looked it up for a costume reference that I realized Michael Crawford played the titular character. I can't stop singing Broadway tunes when I should be singing "Condorman"...

Also, no way on earth I'm going to color every one of those feathers. Ain't nobody got time for that.

Day 12: Sunday Selfie! South absconds...

A hastily shaded page from the WIP...the final will be colored a lot nicer than this, I hope. Also, just spent the weekend at inspiring! So daunting! So much more work I need to do!

Have a good weekend, all last 4 hours of it!

Day 11: Matrose Mond

When I was a wee bitty teen, I LOVED fanfiction. Highlander, Sailor Moon, Star Trek, Star Wars and, quite possibly my favorite, Star Trek/Star Wars crossovers complete with added MST3K riffing (20 years later and this still holds up as a solid, hilarious read).

Anywaaaaaays, where was I going...yes, Sailor Moon fanfics! One that stood out most was a series of SM stories but set in Nazi Germany. Oh, but not just any Nazi Germany...the year 1994 if the Nazis has won the war. So edgy, so trippy. So weird. So fabulous. Sailor Moon was a little tougher and a little scruffier and the Negaverse was a lot more menacing. I wish I could find those again. I wonder if the guy ever finished the series.

So, here's Matrose Mond. Macht der Mondnebel, Macht auf!!

Just a quick sketch today, kids be crazy yo.
