Comic Strip From a Dream!

I don't keep up with modern newspaper comics very closely, though I'll read them if I happen to have a paper in front of me. This weekend I had an extremely vivid dream that I was reading the Sunday comics and I saw this Beetle Bailey strip. I very clearly remember the panels, especially the first one and the last one. It was so weird I woke myself up laughing and decided I had to attempt to recreate the madness. And here it is! Enjoy!

Setting Up A Room!

The second post in a single week! How's that for you?

This one was inspired by one of the latest shorts to be riffed by the masters at RiffTrax (the guys from Mystery Science Theater 3000, if you're not familiar), "Setting Up A Room". A 1967 informational reel featuring two personality-free women, working--with apparently little script--to organize a kindergarten classroom. For 27 minutes! Truly one of the most bizarre things the guys have ever done, and for that, I loved it--enough to be compelled to draw fan art!


Here's the link to the RiffTrax page where you can purchase "Setting Up A Room". If you've never done RiffTrax before (and why haven't you?!), you might want to start with another one, as this one is so off the wall as to not be for everyone.

DragonCon 2011

If you'll forgive me a momentary break from the usual art posts, I thought I'd share my pictures from DragonCon 2011 with you.

I only attended one day of the con (Saturday) and, being the Back to the Future nerd that I am, my main reason for going this year was to see Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson and James Tolkan. They were great, but of course the con is a lot of fun in general, and the people-watching alone is worth the price of admission! Below are my pictures and video clips:
