(1998, Set 16) I draw every week at the cafe in a nearby Barnes & Noble. The girl I drew in the lower left corner of the first picture is right out of my head, but the next week we went to B&N to draw, she was working there. Neat, eh? The second picture contains a word game. (Email me if you think you know what the acronym on (2) this guy's chest stands for.) Last is a pretty fun page, but nothing special besides some me-humor.

(1998, Set 15) (1) Spiderman and a uh... a guy kicking glass!!! Yeah!!! I miss the foot soldiers from TMNT, so in this next pic I made (2) a tribute to them as best as I can remember. (The rest of the page is pretty good to boot.) The third pic turned out really nice and was fun to do since I don't seem to draw kids very often.

(1998, Set 14) More superheroes! I did the first three pics during a trip to Hawaii in the summer of '98. (I spent the majority of my time there drawing with my childhood friends, which rocked.) First up is some "interaction test" comic panels with "Batman, help me!" as the theme. Next is Thor and Iron man. Third is (2) Cable (I got into a lot of Ladronn pencilled Cable comics while I was there), his girl-buddy, a Hellion (?), Captain America and Quicksilver (getting bashed in the face). The fourth pic is just random junky doodles.

(1998, Set 13) One of the ways that I improved over the two weeks of my Hawaii trip was at character interaction. The first picture is an example of some early attempts at it. Next is (2) the legendary Banana Toting Monkey. BTM likes to poke people in the head with his 2-pronged coconut, then put an exploding banana in their mouth. When the banana explodes, their brains squirt out of the puncture wounds in their head. The sketchy picture in the right of the drawing is an "episode" with BTM where he got hungry and ate his own exploding banana. Pretty neat. I'm also fond of the third picture in this set (still done in Hawaii) which has some decent figures in it, including another Black Panther, Absorbing Man and a character interaction test (to the right of the pic) that turned out rather well.
