Electric Eel Cartoon

In honor of the electric eel tank at the Belle Isle Aquarium being completed and the eels in their new home here is a cartoon that I did for a button design that was never used. The flowers were incorporated to tie in with the Conservatory next door. So yes, I can now add tankscaping to my repertoire.

The Guv

So, the mid season of The Walking Dead has aired, so I guess I'll post something related. I did this drawing for a pal a couple of months ago. He's a Governor freak.

Motor City Sketch At The Dakota Inn Rathskeller

 Jay Fosgitt looking as happy as ever at the Rathskeller.

 This was a sing along that everyone in the restaurant participated in. Oh, there were some who were to embarrassed...

I guess I should have checked the sign at the door before entering. I didn't know that no pants was such a big deal.

Some sketches from the night. These were people from surrounding tables.

Last week, Motor City Sketch met up at the German restaurant, The Dakota Inn Rathskeller in Detroit. We had great German food, sketched, sang German songs and had a good time. It was a bit different thing for us to do, but then again, we do try to do different things each month to shake things up.

Portraits Of Poe Book Signing

I will be at Traverse City's The Top Comics this Saturday from 1-4 to sign copies of the Portraits of Poe book alongside Bill Pulkovski, Tony Miello and Dirk Manning, who wrote the introduction. Dirk will also be there signing copies of his own books. There will be a drink and draw at Right Brain Brewery following the signing. So, if you are in the area, stop on by. It should be a fun time! And I look forward to checking out Mike Ackerly's Top Comics shop.

Deadworld Premium Zombie Soda

This past Friday was the launch of a new Deadworld product. Zombie Soda! You can have a variety of flavors featuring labels drawn by various illustrators, such as myself, Jake Minor, Matt Minor, Bill Pulkovski, Mark Bloodworth, Tony Miello, Ted Woods, John Marroquin, Anne Garavaglia, Vince Locke, among others. The above image that was done by me was colored by Demone Amerson. Kevin Minor and some others did more of the coloring.

Check out the Caprice Brand page for more details on the sodas and who drew what labels.

The Wicker Man Sketch Cards

The Wicker Man set will be released at the end of this month by Unstoppable Cards. Above are the cards that I did to contribute to this set. A very fun set to work on. Keep in mind that these cards are based on the 70's movie starring Edward Woodward and Christopher Lee, not the crappy Nicolas Cage remake.

I only have three remaining Artist Proof cards available, so if there's any interest, let me know.

Fall Koi Wrangling

Help them there seahorses wrangle those koi and put them in their winter digs in the basement of the Belle Isle Aquarium. It's that time of year again, so grab the kids, a net and a bucket and head on down to Belle Isle to help out! Festivities start at 10am and hot dogs, chips and pop will be served after the job is done.

I'm going to miss this one, as I will be at the Gibraltar Trade Center for Fantasticon. Catch a fish or two for me! And watch out for the fish poop.
