I’ve been working on a long-standing barter project that’s very near and dear to my heart. My 13-year-old son just received his black belt hapkido at Portland’s Ninja School, a martial arts academy specializing in Heuk Choo Kwan style that’s dedicated to their students’ transformations and sense of personal empowerment. The owners are really awesome folks, and we worked out a trade for my son’s tuition in exchange for a comic book to promote the school. It’s been a great project, and the storyline they’ve been cooking up is expanding well. Here’s a sample of the work we’ve done so far.

Reddit Gets Drawn

I recently joined Reddit (woohoo, time waster!) and discovered a subreddit in which people around the world post photos in the hopes that one of the artists in the community will draw them. It’s a surprisingly good drawing prompt. I wish people posted more pet pictures though.

Of Birds and Bunnies

I explained briefly in a previous post that I was making a comic-format myth for my final project in Trevor Dodge’s Illuminated Manuscripts class.  I give you “The Dove and the Hare,” a tale for children.

In researching this project, I discovered that where we Westerners see a man in the moon, many other cultures worldwide saw a rabbit.  The dark spots on the surface of the moon represented a rabbit pounding corn in South America, a rabbit drumming in Japan, and even a rabbit holding an egg in Europe.  It being the month of Easter, I decided to write a story about how the rabbit and the egg came to be way up there on the moon (and how dinosaurs became extinct, incidentally).
