AXE COP WILL CHOP OFF YOUR HEAD....if you're a bad guy.

Today I'm promoting my pal Ethan Nicolle's Online sensation Axe Cop. His 5 year old brother Malachai writes it and Ethan draws it and it is a beautiful thing that everyone should check out. It is hillarious....Trust me! He's gotten a surge of exposure with this recently and there's a possibility, if the surge continues, awesome things could come from it very soon, so I just want to help spread the word.

So unless you hate America, pie, babies and your grandma....get over to and check it out.

Hitler wouldn't do it....You don't want to be like Hitler do you? CHECK IT OUT NOW!

I hate Lady Gaga so I drew her.

Above is quick character study of Lady Gaga I did preparing for the GBPOB strip featuring her doom in the upcoming issue #3. Even though I find her annoying, and her "music" disgusting, I'm liking how this turned kinda looks like her.

And below is a snip-it from the strip.

The above sketch took about 10 total minutes as I was waiting for Becky to finish using the computer so I could check my e-mail. I've been plotting for PEEP #2 for some time now but I didn't have the time to completely dedicate myself to it with all the freelance work the last few years. But after finishing my latest Lerner project, I find myself with a small window to possibly work on personal projects before the next freelance gig is ready for me. So I'm in the process of working on GREAT BIG PISSED OFF BEAR #3 and I've been plotting for Peep #2. If I get it done it will be something special seeing as it's been 5 years since I debuted the 1st PEEP installment. The above character is one of 3 Battle Chickens and that's all I'm going to say about that...Gotta keep you curious! ANYWAY...the Battle Chicken idea was originally spawned when I was 17 and made a fake commercial for a new toy line called BATTLE CHICKENS. In the ad, I took two ceramic chickens my mom had and I strapped GI JOE weapons to them and had them attacking random action figures. I even made a 2nd commercial when I was 21, using spring-loaded Joe weapons and featuring the EVIL FARMHAND and CARL THE COW. I fell in love with the concept, but even more importantly...the name. So fast forward a number of years and I draw a sketch of a HE-MAN looking chicken for a warm-up exercise for class and decided to use the term Battle Chicken when I described him to the students. This got the gears turning. I had to use this character and the cool name too and soon I had an epiphany! Why not feature them in PEEP, my comic of the exploits of an evil, murderous baby chick. So look for them to appear in PEEP #2 hopefully before the end of 2020.

The lower sketch was a commission piece from the Indy-con held by THE SOURCE comics and games, at the end of December. It's of BARON KARZA from the MICRONAUGHTS toyline from the 1980's. I didn't have enough time to finish it at the show, so I took it home with a plan. I wanted to draw a bunch of burning skeletons behind him which was an idea from an old Mike Mignola DAREDEVIL ANNUAL cover from the early 90's. So I drew my burning skeletons and it's my favorite part of the whole piece.
