Issue 29: In The Doctor's Care

Squeezing in before year's end is Issue 29: In The Doctor's Care. Feeling quite accomplished with this one. I got a chance to throw in some drawings that relate to my real job in this issue. This one definitely was one of the funner ones to draw.

Here's wishing everyone a Happy New Year! Looking forward to 2009 and its possibilities!

Crazy Good!

Nothing pumps your blood full of sugary goodness like Pop-Tarts in the morning. I'm a fan of the stuff, but I've cut back considerably since my younger days. The recent commercials I've been seeing for Pop-Tarts has caught my eye though. The animation has a quirky quality to it that reminds me a lot of the Don Hertzfeld animation that used to consume my study times.

The folks over at Head Gear Animation are responsible for these cool little random clips. Check out the site and enjoy a Pop-Tart. Then go run a mile to work it off!

Issue 28: Back to Headquarters

And here...we...go...

I've planned to divide the Orchard Heroes issues into 30 issue volumes.

Why 30?

Because I'm taking a short vacation and it just happened to work out to 30 issues. It'll be nice to kind of refresh and have some time to work on this stuff so that my updates won't be so...delayed.

So much thanks to those who have browsed through my amateur attempt at comics as we round out the first volume. All the comments and fan art really make this kind of stuff fun and worth doing.
2 more issues to go!

Oh yea, here's Issue 28: Back to Headquarters!

A Birthday and a Symbiote

I got a few more pieces of awesome art to add to the Fan Art section. I think its kind of cool how when the same character is drawn by another person, the character almost takes on a different personality and feel. The hand-drawn birthday card was sent to me by my friend Annie, and the inspiring Symbiote piece was done by my friend Johnny. I must say, seeing the small changes and adjustments people make to my original design really opens up new story ideas...
Thanks guys!
