This weekend was a flurry of comic making and Del Toro movie watching. Friday night we rented Pacific Rim and I gotta say it was pretty much what I thought it would be. Very predictable, very beautiful. The 12 year old me was giddy as fruit punch. The 42 year old me was entertained, but not blown away – sadly. Saturday, as I worked on comics for my buffer, I got to thinking about Guillermo Del Toro which lead to thinking about Hellboy.
On a side note, a couple weekends ago, I picked up the Hellboy Directors Cut three disk set for $9 and am in Heaven. Great find, lots of great stuff on there. I highly recommend!
So anyway, I got to thinking about Hellboy which lead to an impromptu sketch. I don’t draw right into Adobe Illustrator very often, at least not a complete sketch, and when I do – such as I did here – I’m often surprised at how well they turn out. I really dig it!
Speaking of the comic, I will begin updating regularly each MWF again starting on November 4th, 2013. I know it’s been a long while since a regular update and I hate it as much as any of you do, but life gets in the way some times. Once I begin updating again I will continue through the Holiday’s and don’t foresee a break for a long while.
I will also get to work on a fifth Robot Friday book in hopes of releasing it around the Holidays or early 2014.
I’ve got lots of comics written for the rest of the year and big plans for next year as well. The overall Robot Friday story is coming together and there will be a lot of growth in the characters in the coming months. In short, there are plenty of great things to come in the comic and on the Robot Friday site and world in general. More cool mini-pinups and a fun project I’m not ready to release yet, but it’s SUPER cool!
So, thank you all for the continued support and keep spreading that comic word!
