Posts Tagged ‘Sketch Lottery’

Starting from June 1st to August 31st, Sketch Lottery is having a free-for-all. Basically for summer 2018, draw any of the past Sketch Lottery subjects. Which meant I finally had a chance to sketch Alf.

Alf had this thing where he ate cats. So it’s only fitting that Alf met his match with Grumpy Cat.

 I met Grumpy Cat once. During the summer of 2014. A Barnes and Noble book signing, located in the Union Square area of downtown Manhattan, NYC. Tartar Sauce (Grumpy Cat’s real name) was asleep. Tartar Sauce’s human liked my shirt. Here’s a photo of me when I was platinum blond. Before I went with my signature blue hair.

Posting with Tartar Sauce, better known as Grumpy Cat. June 3rd, 2014, Barnes and Noble book signing/meet and greet. Union Square (Manhattan) location.

Anyway, back to the sketch. Originally I was going to ink the piece, but liked how the pencil work was coming along. So I kept it just the way it was. Really like this one a lot. Besides. Grumpy Cat is sort of like my spirit animal.

This week looks pretty busy. My weekly Psycho Bunny sketch might be delayed until the latest, Tuesday evening

In the meantime, check out my rendition of Cap n’ Crunch on Sketch Lottery. Alas, because my scanner isn’t doing too well, the colors aren’t coming out so crisp. The sketch was done in colored pencil. Not my usual brand either. Prang colored pencils don’t blend in as well as Prismacolors. The scan has the colors come out a lot lighter.

Regardless – I always knew that Cap n’ Crunch was always a player!

Psst…Never eat sugary crap like Cap n’ Crunch. God awful cereal.

Taking a break looking back on MICE 2016 I & MICE 2016 II. This summer from June 1st to August 31st, Sketch Lottery is doing a free for all. This means anyone can submit from the character list. Usually you have to wait until a character is chosen weekly. Since this give me time to sketch any characters previously missed, I chose Hagar The Horrible.

It’s been a while since I sent anything to Sketch Lottery. So I did Felix The Cat as Jerry Only from The Misfits.

Usually I will post a crop of my sketch, and send people to the site itself. This time I felt the scan didn’t do my sketch any justice. So I re-scanned the piece using a different dpi.

Catching up with blog posts that should’ve been online last week. Here I contributed once again to the Sketch Lottery site. That week’s character was the best known bounty hunter in the Star War universe, Boba Fett.

Occasionally I’ll send drawings to Sketch Lottery. Recently that site had a special anniversary edition, where you can draw any subject from the past character list. It gave me a chance to draw two of my favorite comic book characters, Buddy Bradley and Tank Girl.

The first one submitted was actually from my early childhood. Grover from Sesame Street. This time I threw in a Rockabilly twist.

The second one was Buddy Bradley from Hate Magazine. Hate Magazine is a comic written and drawn by one of my top ten cartoonists, Peter Bagge. Buddy started as disgruntled member of a dysfunctional family. Later Buddy moved to Seattle getting caught up in the burgeoning late ’80s/early ’90s Grunge scene. Eventually Buddy moved back to his hometown in New Jersey where he more or less matured. After marrying his neurotic girlfriend Lisa, he settled down with a family while maintaining his own business. I took the ’90s Grunge Buddy, making him into a 2017 Hipster Buddy. The type that you can find in a Bushwick watering hole like The Cobra Club.

Number three was a show I watched on and off during the early 2000s. If you remember Aqua Teen Hunger Force, then you remember Meatwad. Did the show itself make any sense? Of course not, but maybe it wasn’t supposed to.

Here you can see the Aqua team on a vintage valentine design. Like the type you used to give to your classmates straight out of the box brought from the drug store. Sometimes I think that was more fun than the later adult valentines.

Last one up is Tank Girl. Back in the early ’90s, I was introduced to Tank Girl by my UK friend Jason. He took a chance and mailed me a copy. Too bad the movie version tanked, but that’s a different story. Still not as bad as 1995’s Judge Dredd. Where I sat in a theater as the entire audience heckled the film. Good times.

Personally I could’ve done a better job with this sketch. It was late but I was pushing myself to draw Tank Girl before the deadline. Will have to do another version if Sketch Lottery has another anniversary edition.
