Pix Plus…Mermin!

PIX+Mermin

Mermin, the mer man from Mer, is the star of the MERMIN series of graphic novels by Joey Weiser, who, like myself, is a regular contributor to SPONGEBOB COMICS (I’ve even drawn some of his stories), but while both Mermin and SpongeBob are aquatic creatures, Mermin’s different and very entertainingly so. Super-readable and engaging, what’s most fun to me about it is the action element; Mermin’s got super powers…secrets to his identity…a uniform that could be a costume – Mermin is kind of a superhero…a new kind of Aquaman in a lot of ways. With that, it seemed natural to draw my interpretation of Mermin in as super heroic a way I could, comin’ at ya with classic superhero comics posing!

Pix Plus…Amulet’s Emily Hayes!

PIX+AmuletEmily Hayes is the the AMULET series, by Kazu Kibuishi. At six volumes and counting, AMULET follows Emily as she, with her brother and mother, discover new worlds, encounter new robotic and anthropomorphic animal friends, and face many obstacles and enemies, as she learns to control and use the power of the Amulet she wears around her neck. This is a tremendous series. The first ten pages or so of the first volume, THE STONEKEEPER, are intense and emotional and quite riveting, and sets the stage for  an engaging, epic story, told deftly and with a lot of humanity. For this drawing I opted to show Emily wielding the power of the Amulet in a bold, dynamic, super heroic fashion…and Pix has her back!

Pix Plus…Starbunny, Inc!

PIX+Starbunny

Starbunny, Inc. is a terrific new webcomic from Dave Roman (ASTRONAUT ACADEMY, AGNES QUILL), about a bunny, Blue, his family milkshake business, and his star. Read chapter one and tell me you’re not engaged and want to know what happens next.  This is good stuff. My drawing’s a bit of projection, an imagined scenario based on the story so far.

Check it out at starbunny.net, and see more of Dave’s work at yaytime.com.

Pix Plus…Superhero Girl!

PIX+SuperheroGirlSuperhero Girl is the star of the selfsame titled webcomic-turned-Eisner Award-Winning hardcover collection from Dark Horse Comics, by Faith Erin Hicks (FRIENDS WITH BOYS, NOTHING CAN POSSIBLY GO WRONG). It’s a really great read, and Faith’s art is top notch; especially her attention to facial expressions and body language. For this drawing it seemed a natural fit to have these two costumed girl heroes flying/leaping gleefully over rooftops.

Pix Plus…The Color Guardians!

 

PIX+ColorGuardians

The G-MAN series of graphic novels by Chris Giarrusso are so great. They’re funny, adventurous, and have more heart than I think people even realize. The color guardians, a group of super-powered girls representing colors of the spectrum, are just one part of the great cast of characters that populate the G-MAN world. For this drawing I’ve teamed Pix with the full team of Color Guardians as they engage with something that clearly doesn’t stand a chance…

PIX One Weirdest Weekend Debut!

This past weekend, September 5-7, 2014, was Baltimore Comic-Con, and the first public appearance of the final, printed PIX ONE WEIRDEST WEEKEND graphic novel. I was part of the Kids Love Comics pavilion, organized but the great Mark Mariano, with his brother Christopher, which included outstanding cartoonist focussed on making comics for, well, kids…from the youngest readers to teenagers.

But before this past weekend, in fact, the weekend prior, I received my first, small shipment of books (the rest are on their way), and I cannot tell you how exciting it was to open that first box:
