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.

Fantasticon 2014

This Saturday you can find me at the Gibraltar Trade Center in Mt. Clemens, MI for the Fantasticon Comic Book & Pop Culture Show. It seems that this show keeps getting bigger and bigger each year, so I am looking forward to a good one. I will have the usual prints, books, official and personal sketch cards, original art and will be doing commissions, as well.

The Man Who Fell To Earth Sketch Cards

While I'm working on other projects like the Belle Isle Aquarium weather vane, another sketch card set and the always present cartoons, I will post some sketch cards that I did earlier in the year, but wanted to wait until the release dates were near. So, here are the cards from The Man Who Fell To Earth set that will be put out by Unstoppable Cards later this month. As some of you may know, this is the David Bowie film from the 70's. This was a fun one to do, great imagery to play with. I have three Artist Proof cards available.
