Some Random Paper Wasting

Didn't have time to write anything else for today, so I'm just gonna post some random stuff in the "Wasting Paper" department. First up, a couple of my son's latest...


With the release of Gears of War 3 a couple weeks ago, everybody in my house has Gears fever again, and my 7 year old is  no exception. Here we have what appears to be a couple of "Lowcust" getting the pain brought to them by Marcus and the Cole Train (sporting his Gene Simmons Kiss platform cleats no less).


Next up, his latest caricature of his dear old dad. I must say he's getting better at drawing me. This time out, I have all my appendages! I'm also apparently now bald, wear skinny jeans and fingerless gloves, and bear a striking resemblance to the Rage Guy.

Remember the post I did with the cd drawings? Well I've done a couple more cd's lately, here they are...

Another Freddy

Michael Myers
Kang and Kodos
And finally one from a really for real artist, and friend of mine. A couple weeks ago I put out the word to any and all of my friends who had any artistic ability whatsoever that I was aware of to help me decorate my mostly barren walls with art. I know a handful of people who draw, paint, etc. and I figured, it's my house, and I'm not really interested in pictures of fruit or farm houses, and there's only so many pictures of my kids I can hang up, so why not hang up art that I actually dig? Last week I got my first picture, from a guy I met while working at the comic store. He always turned in his orders from Previews with some sort of original art, and I always thought they were great, so he was the first guy I asked to do me a sketch. I basically told him I was a 9 year old trapped in a 33 year old body, and I liked Batman and monsters. I left the rest up to him, and here's what he did for me...


Is this amazing, or what? I had to pick my jaw up off the floor when he sent me a picture of it. I think it pretty much goes without saying that I absolutely love it. If there's anybody reading out there who likes to draw, paint, whatever, and would like to contribute to operation decorate the Batcave, drop me a line. I can only offer my most sincerest of thank you's as payment, but some would say that's worth more than money anyway...

Jacob really is getting better every time he draws. You should be a very proud dad. The CD's are awesome as always, Michael Myers is "jelly tight" and the original drawing is badass. It is amazing what he drew with only the very vague description you gave him of things you like
