We are back and January is done!  Well, in a few more days it is at least, but that's neither here nor there!  We are one month into 2021 and hopefully things are looking up for everyone.  It's a long road ahead, but the destination is in sight.  We just have to be patient and careful.  But today is all about art, and this week's entry offers big things in a small package!  Enjoy...

Watch where ya step!  That ain't no bug, it's the Inch High Samurai!  Admittedly, I'm not too familiar with this legend, but I can't help but think that Antman HAD to have drawn some inspiration from it!  This was probably one of the simplest drawings I'd done up to that point, and it's one of my favorites.  I'm rarely that pleased with my own art, but I think it's because I just plain kept things simple that this one came out so good.  As artists, I think we feel the urge to load as much into a panel or page as possible, but more often than not, less really is more.  Especially if the extra elements really just turn to clutter.  It's certainly something to think about while drawing.

And that's a wrap on January 2021!  Next month, some old pals will stopping by with some fresh looks as they celebrate another birthday, so be sure to come back and say hi!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!

Welcome back!  We are more than halfway through the first month of the year and I sincerely hope that all of you are staying safe and finding ways to keep busy during these trying times.  Outside of comics and illustration, I've actually been branching out into more dimensional art, including masks and puppets and am even working on a kitbashed model!  Depending on how these things come out, I might even share them in an eventual blog post!  Until then, we're still on an art kick here, and what I'm about to drop is pretty darn funny!  What am I talking about?  Scroll drown and see!  Enjoy...

Many have wondered what caused Humpty Dumpty's great fall.  Some have even wondered why the king's horses and men couldn't put him back together again?  Me personally, I always wondered what was so important about Humpty Dumpty in the first place that it would necessitate royal intervention in his rescue?  And further more, what help could hoofed animals like horses actually provide in piecing him back?!?  I have no answers to the latter questions but I can confirm what caused his fall: He was drunk off his rocker!  Factor in his rounded, solid posterior and the flat surface he was sitting on... It's a recipe for tragedy.  This was one of my favorites to work on during this round of Animal Alphabets.  Many wanted me to do a CRAZY version of the Humpty Dumpty tragedy after I posted this and, admittedly, I have been thinking about doing a graphic novel collection of fairytales.  Gotta love public domain, eh?  Perhaps that's something I'll work on in the coming year! 

That's all for now folks.  Be sure to come back next week as we end January with some big laughs wrapped up in a small package!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!

We are back!  Hopefully things are looking brighter as we slowly pass through January.  Why does the first month always feel like the longest?  I have no answer for that, but I do have some art, so if you'd kindly scroll down, hopefully that'll provide some laughs!  Enjoy...

The Goose that Laid the Golden Eggs.  How many of those did WCW let slip through their fingers during the 90's?  Sorry folks, my love of old school wrestling slipped in there for a second!  This was another theme for Animal Alphabets, as are all the other posts for this month.  Had a lotta fun drawing this one and the reaction it got was very positive.  That is clearly one strong bird!

Well, that's two posts down and two more to go in January.  It's very early on, but the way I see it, we are just THAT much closer to Christmas now!  Ain't that exciting?  There's even more to get excited about as next week, we got some art coming that'll crack you up, so be sure to come back for the yolks, er, jokes!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!

Hey there CRAZIES!!!  And welcome to the new year!  I think I speak for just about everyone when I say that 2020 can stuff an asbestos-coated cactus up its butt and go jump in a pool of lava!  But enough about that old thing.  It's a new year and with that comes many new possibilities, including hope.  I don't know what the future holds, but there is a light at the end of a VERY long tunnel.  If we just stay patient and be mindful, maybe that light can be reached sooner.  But for now, let's focus on art, because as luck would have it, I just so happen to have some and its ready to be seen in a new light!  So let's get this party started, shark we?  Enjoy...

If you thought the real Prince was a baller, then you CLEARLY never saw the Frog Prince take the court!  The Murphy Crew never knew what hit them!  Today's art sees a return to an old Animal Alphabets theme where we gave our interpretations of classic fairytale creatures, with F being used, obviously, for the Frog Prince.  It wasn't hard to find inspiration for this one as the classic Chappelle's Show skit (Where the late Charlie Murphy and his pals get schooled in basketball by Prince and the Revolution, in full costumes allegedly) was fresh in my mind and I just ran with it!  I remember this getting a pretty good response on Twitter when I initially posted it, though I can't remember whether it was before of after the real Prince had passed away, as it's dated from 2016.  Concussions and age take a toll on the old memory banks.

And that's all for this first post of 2021.  Obviously, times are less than ideal right now, but I see some signs of hope, small as they may be.  Hopefully, this will be the year we get things under control and start to set things right.  In the meantime, be kind to each other and do come back next week for some golden laughs!  Until next time, take care and I'll catch y'all later!
