The Broken Windshield Wiper

with 6 comments

021-BrokenWiper

Us Abbamondi folk…we’re like everyday MacGyvers I tell you. I actually first suggested using the string on an extra air freshener in my car so I’m not totally perfect as a resourceful secret agent, but I promise I’m working on it.

Anyways, after the car problems were finished up, all of us went out to eat at Carino’s Italian Restaurant. We nom nomed, we caught up, and afterwards we all went our separate ways (well, not me–I stayed in my apartment for the evening). It was a very nice visit, all-in-all, and hopefully I’ll get down to South Jersey some time in September/October…

Give me all your stuff
Until I can’t get up
Watch the whole world freeze
Counting tin cans in our sleep
Submarines are diving deep
And don’t believe in me

Tara’s Breath of Life

with 5 comments

One more for the night:

guestcom

This happened on our way back from Philcon in November 2008, but I’m only getting around to posting it now because…well, I can be forgetful at times. Anyways, Tara is probably going to be the next Mother Theresa. She’s that kind, especially to frozen bees. And she’s allllllllllllllll mine.

So yeah, enjoy. I’ll have to look around and see what else I can post to keep this place happening while I get Supertown going…

The blacksmith and the artist
Reflect it in their art
They forge their creativity

True Blood as a pie chart

with 8 comments

I did a good number of things on my to-do list tonight so I treated myself to drawing a cartoon, which in reality is nothing more than a pie chart about True Blood:

Yup.

I’m also going to take Kelly‘s advice and use this post to its advantage to mention Anna Paquin’s boobs and get a ton of hits. So yeah…Anna Paquin…and her boobs. She’s got two of…’em? Am I right, fellas? Anyways, I’ve finished the first season and can officially say that I like the show. It’s gritty, it’s filthy, it’s my sort of v-story. Can’t wait to watch some more…

I remember it well
There was wet in your hair
I stood in the stairs
And time stopped moving

Chapter cover art samples for Supertown

with one comment

Yes, the forthcoming Supertown is going to be a black, white, and gray sort of comic, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t any room for color. Each chapter (story arc, in essence) will be getting its own cover art, which will be used in the storyline guide section of the website. Here’s the first two for “Chapter One: Bugs in the War Room” and “Chapter Two: No Trouble Like Zoo Trouble,” respectively:

Feel free to start spreading some hype around. I won’t mind one bit.

In a world of doubt and fear
I wake at night and reach to find you near
Lost in a dream, you caught me as I fell
I want more than just a dream to tell

The Dance of the Packing Peanuts

It was more magical than that trash bag scene in American Beauty, I kid thee not.

Some rules are made with all intentions to break
And she defends it with a warped rationale
And I’ve seen what happens to the wicked and proud
When they decide to try to take on the throne for the crown

Inkdick minus its last panel

with 3 comments

Spurred on by this Inkdick comic, everyone’s been sharing their wacky mash-ups of last panels and it’s been entertaining, if a bit weird. I, however, always strive to break the mold and thus present Inkdick with no last panel:

Take that, meta-heads!

Supertown header sketch

with one comment

I hope y’all don’t get tired of me talking about Supertown. It’s basically a project that’s been living in my head for at least a year or so and I’m super excited about it becoming an existence, and well…I just have to emote (for once). Eee. So here’s a sketch of what I’m hoping the comic’s header will look like:

My inspiration for this came from the Batman: Black and White covers, #4 to be specific. You should click that. They are beyond awesome. Hopefully I don’t get sued.

Cause I am due for a miracle
I’m waiting for a sign
I’ll stare straight into the sun
And I won’t close my eyes
Until I understand or go blind
