So my daughter Story, who wrote our children’s book The Dragon Book, has been dying to see a My Little Pony and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle team up.  While I was on paternity leave with my son being born, we knocked a couple of them out.  The top one cracks me up, because we joked about how much Ralphael would just be aggravated to no end by Pinky Pie.  They were a lot of fun.  I hope you all like them too!

Daily Drawing: The Scarecrow

My second daily drawing. THE SCARECROW! Continuing Batman week!  The Scarecrow is one of my all time favorite characters in the Batman rogues gallery.  Something about him is just as demented and over the top as The Joker.  It was a lot of fun to draw this piece and to try out my new Prisma Color gray markers!

Be sure to check out the store for all of my daily drawings on sale!

 

Story’s Book : The Penguin, T-Rex and Kitty

My three year old daughter loves to come up with stories with us (her name is also Story).  A few months back I was looking for something fun to do with her since we kind of getting burned out on the books we had around the house and the coloring books we had, so I decided we should  make one.

It was a really terribly drawn book called the Owl.  Basically Story just said one thing after the other that the owl was doing and I did a quick drawing of it with crayon.  Here’s a page from it:

It was really just something fun for us to do, but Story LOVED IT!  She asked to read it over and over again, every night.  But then one day Story colored over the whole thing.  I was pretty bummed out about it.  I decided I wanted to try and actually for real draw one of her stories, so we moved to the computer so we would always have a clean file and she spun this little web…  Her most ambitious, funny and coherent story yet.

The ending cracks me up, even if its a little unsettling.  Lol.  But hey she’s a three year old. It’s such fun making these books with her.  I think we are going to work on making another three or so and I’ll do a small print run for her or something.  This is also something that was put forward to me that other’s might be interested in commissioning with their own kid’s stories.  If this is something people out there would be interested in having me do for their kids let me know!
