Hero Profile: The Slug

Here's my first submission to Toon Club. The topic is "Unnessisary Heroes". Needless to say I had fun with it. I came up with about a dozen potential heroes, but this was my favorite.

For those who are not familiar with Toon Club, here's the address.
These guys are incredibly talented and I consider it a great privalege to have been asked to submit my work. It's going to be a wild ride, and a lot of fun!

Goldilocks and the Three Bears: Part 2

Okay guys, here's the finished "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" that I promised. On that note, I'm off to get some more work done. If they work out, perhaps I'll post those too.
Later, Ken

Illustration Friday: Monster/Spring/Speed

Guy Francis told me about Illustration, where they pick a topic, you illustrate it, then post it on their site. Sounded like fun. Only I missed the last two posts, which were 'Monster' & 'Spring' and this next Friday's topic is 'Speed', so I combined the three into one.

Sea Critter

This is the kind of thing I do for the fun of it. I drew this 'Sea Critter' while goofing off this morning. I'm not sure why but my 'monsters' tend to look like family pets; harmless, even friendly. Many girls have mentioned this to me, usually while they're smiling and cooing. How mortifying.
Not sure what's going on with those spagetti arms. What was I thinking?

Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Sorry for the delay. Crazy schedule, tight deadlines, etc. You know the drill. This painting is only 40% done. I'll post the finished painting later. And for those who are curious, it's painted with Windsor & Newton Gouache on 140 lb. cold-pressed Watercolor paper.

Avatar: Golem Hunter

Sooner or later I had to come up with an Avatar. It's based on a drawing I did years back, only cleaned up and colored.

And just so you know: a Golem is a stone or mud man created by a Rabbi to execute vengance on his enemies. The only way to destroy a Golem is to pull the magical parchment that keeps it alive out of it's mouth. Once this is done, it falls harmlessly to the ground as rubble, sludge, etc. My Golem is wearing business casual. His tie is made from Moss; next best thing to silk.
