Been Awhile


First post in a long time. Well, on the right is a little piece I'm working on called "The Z Team." Actually, that's a lot of projects, isn't it? I still sketch characters from "DiNoir" from time to time, I'm working on a comic for the blog right now, and I'm playing with the idea of giving all my major comic characters super alter-egos. None of them really have names yet, aside from Dan (the Penetrator, of course) and Luke (Ashfall). Luke's superpower is the ability to burst into flame, like the Human Torch, except Luke can't fly. Marcus is an "urban ninja" with delusions of granduer and a flask in his pocket. Erik is going to be a sort of motorcycle-riding vigilante of the night. Now I'll have to learn how to draw motorcycles, or at least his motorcycle. And then there's Nelson, the flying chimpanzee. Can can fly. I mean, whoa.
Not sure if this band of heroes gets together or if they all work separately. I'd also like to do a Metal Gear Solid parody with all these characters playing key roles. As we all know, Marcus would be Snake and Erik would play Ocelot. I suppose Luke could be Psycho Mantis and Dan could play Raven (totally kidding). Rebecca could play Meryl AND Sniper Wolf. Of course, an actual comic-book style webcomic is far in the future, but it's on my mind.
So that's where things stand right now. I'm all moved in, and the new condo is cleaned up. No more cable TV, but that's okay because House and Top Model are on basic. And really, why else would one watch TV? Actually, Girls Next Door is on E!, so I'm totally going to be missing that, but it will eventually come out on DVD where there are no commercials so I'm fine with that. That reminds me, season two of that show hits Best Buy on Tuesday...
