Why with a car like that, Kate and Timothy could easily drive to the North Pole.

Helping Senior Citizens With All Their Comics Needs Since 2009

Our Seller's Permit for APE showed up today. This means we are Official! Unfortunately they misspelled our name. Instead of Blue Ringed Comics, according to the State of California we are Blue Rinsed Comics. I can just see it now: special comics geared to the elderly, maybe we could get the license to Diagnosis: Murder. Of course we'd offer a senior discount. Clearly, this is what we were meant to do.

Sloane ATC

So on the same day I saved moolah at the local Aaron Bros. I also found a pack of blank artist trading cards (ATC). Since they've been floating temptingly around deviantART, I decided I'd give it a go.

The first of the Kate Anderson characters I decided to put on an ATC was.... Sloane! Because he's so sexy....? @_@ Don't really know why, but drawing him first just seemed right. The cute lemur might have had something to do with it. I've decided that Sloane would name him Julian. And then crown him king.

The original is quite small: 2.5" x 3.5". It is Copic pens and Prismacolor markers on bristol board.

Yaaar, Woooorf, Suuuulu

Well, it's International Talk Like a Pirate Day. While I refuse to be told to talk like a pirate, I will drink like one. While I try and drink my body mass worth of rum, enjoy some dialogue and a song I wrote for three nerd pirates in Mothman and Chrysalis.

PIRATE 1: Yaaar!

PIRATE 2: Wooorf!

PIRATE 3: Suluuu!

PIRATE 1: What be you doing?

PIRATE 2: I thought we were namin’ security chiefs o’ th’ Enterprise.

PIRATE 1: Sulu wasn’t security chief o’ th’ Enterprise.

PIRATE 3: In ‘Mirror, Mirror’ he was.

PIRATE 2: Aye, but that was in a parallel universe.

PIRATE 3: How about Chekov? Chekov was th’ security chief in th’ first six Star Trek movies.

PIRATE 1: Not in Star Trek 2 though.

PIRATE 3: Not in Star Trek 2, yeah. But th’ rest…

(Sung by three pirates in four part harmony)

It’s hard to be a pirate in this day and age
But da’ nine t’ five grind feels like we trapped in a cage
So we quit our jobs at th’ local Target
And bought these new clothes from a costume set

We were pirates
We were mean
We were vicious and cruel
But da’ biggest body of water we could find was a pool

Forsakin’ the high seas, we turned to crime
Drinkin’ Coronas with tiny slices o’ lime
We spend our days lookin’ for booty
And once we find our treasure, we’ll look for some cuties

Oh, yeah.

All th’ pirates in th’ house go, “Rrrr.”

So here we end our tale o’ woe and tragedy
How we ditched our jobs and turned t’ piracy
But enough o’ this rap, ‘tis getting hard to rhyme
We’re gonna stop it now because it’s time…to steal


Peace Out

Sale at Aaron Bros!

Thanks to the Wise and All-Knowing Steven, I scored some great deals at the local Aaron Brothers!  He let me know that they're having a sale on all kinds of art supplies, among them Prismacolor markers which I use.  I got 10 individual markers, mostly pastels - which I have a hard time finding.  

I also picked up a pad of Bristol board, which will be on the receiving end of the markers I got. Thanks to Steven letting me know about the sale, I saved 40% off the markers and
 50% off the paper.  I saved $20.30!  Thank 
you Steven! <3

Kate Anderson Style Meme

I found a style meme on deviantART the other day so I decided to give it a shot with Kate.

This just in:  I like Osamu Tezuka.  A lot.

Kate is not Waterproof

So way back when I was working on Idol of Nud Thelo, I had a snowglobe.  "Had" being the operative word here.  I also have a cat.  And gravity was working that day.  All three combined into a snowglobe falling onto a surge protecter, my scanner, and the drawing of the first page of Nud Thelo that was on the scanner.

Luckily, there was no great damage.  The snowglobe went to snowglobe heaven after dying a Disney villian's death, the surge protecter went to silicon heaven as a safety precaution, and the page had already been scanned so it didn't matter that it bled.  And bled and bled and bled.

So here's what the page looked like post-snowglobe incident.  I don't know why it's pink.  I used Microns and Prismas, both of which claim to be waterproof.  The snowglobe 'water' smelled awful, and it kind of makes me wonder what was in it that made the waterproof art supplies bleed.

Green Raven, page 2

Sit tight, boys and girls, and watch your favorite hero, the Green Raven, confront some no-good crooks!  Tune in next Tuesday for the next page!

Drawings by a 3rd Grader

In non-Kate news, I recently stumbled upon a sketchbook that had some of my drawings in it from when I was little.   I thought they were kind of cute, so here's a few you can look at.  Enjoy!
