next week, issue #4 of Batman Black and White hits stores and It’s a pretty important issue to me. The title itself was a dream project when i was trying to break into comics, it’s also what lead to the prestigious statue line by DC of the same name. I was assigned 2 statues for that line ( Batman and Batman Beyond), but having never gotten to draw a story for it, it never felt complete. So..this is one goal fulfilled.
I feel a lot of people dream of breaking into DC or Marvel to get on a big team book, something top seller, change the industry, and be wildly famous- as did I. But in the end, i found out what made me happiest ( and stress-free), was just telling a few good Batman stories. It’s all i ever wanted to do at DC. Of course, you hear people say that all the time. So, here’s one more i guess.
I’ve drawn Batman before in multiple titles and books, thousands of panels, and sketched him more times than i’ve backed out of my own driveway. But this issue- 8 pages i got to write and draw myself, this is pretty much the milestone for me. After this short story, and this past year’s run of Lil Gotham, if they never let me draw another Batman story again- i think i’ll be okay with that (:
Here’s a page from the story.
Baby Batkids wearing sweaters.
Dick knitted them. ALL OF THEM.
Steph: #1 Buddy
Cass: #1 Sister (She’s unhappy about that, because she’s the ONLY sister, so what does that mean, huh?)
Dick: #1 Brother, he made the sweaters, he can wear what he wants
Jason: #1 Troublemaker
(Damian is in a bear costume)
Tim: #1 Fan!

I was going through my facebook albums and I found a bunch of Pokemon/superhero crossovers I did a couple of years ago. (I call them /co/kemon) I thought tumblr would enjoy them, so here they are.
They were in the microwave!
It’s an experiment.
the best part is that they aren’t being smartasses
they hear Jordan say to shake hands like on earth and they’re like “okay weirdo alien we’ll do your stupid-ass alien tradition but we won’t enjoy it.”
2nd in what I guess is now a fashion series…
Vintage Artemis! :D
I might make Dick later…
edit: I corrected the face a bit just so ya know..
first attempt at sai! I guess I’m satisfied-ish :D I love M’gann’s hair
have you ever stayed up late with someone texting or chatting and known as the hours ticked by that you’d be ridiculously tired in the morning but it didnt matter because it was really fun and totally worth losing sleep over just to laugh with someone and enjoy their company maybe and then the next day you keep tiredly recalling how much fun it was while you’re falling asleep in class and that makes it not so bad that you’re tired anymore
