My Alter Ego #49 and 1/2



My good pal, Brian Spath, was very interested in entering the Your Alter Ego Contest. However, he seemed to hit a creative block. So tonight through text messaging and email we worked simultaneously to each complete an Alter Ego Comic within a given time period. This is the strip I created. Brian's will be seen when I post the entries.

There's still time for you to enter the contest. Click the link above for contest rules and details. Deadline is before My Alter Ego #50.

J-Stew!



Justin Stewart is such a nice guy. He's so considerate he even thought to include Dr.Cheese's wife, Maurice, in this pin-up. Doesn't she look beautiful?

Justin's page in the Traveling Comic is also available for viewing.

Your Alter Ego Contest


My Alter Ego is quickly nearing #50, which means the Your Alter Ego Contest deadline is also nearing. You don't need anything more than a piece of paper and a pen (or pencil.) The rules are also very simple:

1. Draw a square:

2. Put something in it:

3. Draw another square, next to the first one:

4. Put something in that square:

5. Repeat these steps until you have a complete comic story.
6. Full rules can be found at the original Your Alter Ego Contest post from May.

So get to drawing! I could be drawing My Alter Ego #50 any day now! Hurry!

Flooded

Well, it looks like I won't be going anywhere today.

K10 and I had packed up Buddy and Sinatra, two of our cats, for their yearly check up at the vet. When we got to the bottom of our complex's drive we saw this:


It may be important to give a St.Louis geography lesson at this point. K10 and I live next to The River Des Peres, a small river that functions as a sewer drain. Glamorous. The "River" is primarily dry year round, except during the rainy season when it takes on the waters from surrounding rivers to prevent flooding. Again, "river" may be questionable.So it was surprising to find, this morning that our street was flooded, but the river remained mostly dry.

Some idiot thought he could make it through.

Open for buisness?


Part of me expected the atmoshpere among the tenents in our complex to turn into The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street from The Twilight Zone.

Oh well, we had planned on a lazy Sunday anyway.

Up In My Grill



This is a pin-up I did for Jim Lujan of his character Rage Dogg . Jim is an accomplished cartoonist, who has appeared in many places including Spike and Mike's Twisted Animated Theatre.

Jim is a good friend, and I was more then happy when he requested I draw Rage Dogg for him, since Rage appears in my favorite cartoon by Jim.
