filler time! – i am a muppet

April 6, 2011

I hardly did a thing ALL weekend. I’m resting up hard for MoCCAFest this weekend. Also, I started rereading Sandman, and I just can’t stop that until I’m done.

I’ve done a handful of weird commissions and presents for friends in the past week or two though, so I am going to use those as filler!

Let’s start with the weirdest! Which is probably this self-portrait of myself and my pal Bob as muppets. As commissioned by the Honourable Doctor Reverend Beazles KSC, who as brought it to my attention that I am, in fact, a muppet. Or have the grace of one. Or something.

Anyway, it’s all true.

The colors got a little weird since I decided using markers on tracing paper was a good idea, and ended up pretty much watercoloring with alcohol-based ink.

If anyone knows how to make these puppets happen in reality, just let me know.

As a reminder, tonight is Wednesday which means I will be playing with the Jay Ackley band at The Vital Movement (for which I have added a very useful button on the sidebar). We will be playing at least one song about robots, and I will have copies of my comic with me for sale, as always.
