I’m visiting some family that live by Amish country. It answered a question I’ve had. There’s actually surprisingly great cell reception.

So it finally happened….. Logan decided to add a Logasaurus touch to something I asked him to bring upstairs while I dug out some his Lego (sneaky) 

Any ideas how to remove crayon artgantuan?? 

I can’t really be mad he’s never done anything like this before, other than digitally and that was easy enough to delete the layer.

D’aaaawwww! It’s cute and kinda sad at the same time, haha!Yeah, you can digitally remove a lot of the crayon with the eraser, or hue/saturation targeting cyan and yellow. From an original standpoint, if you’re planning on doing marker rendering, or an inkwash, you might want to either cut out the eyes. Then, you can tape some Bristol to the back and redraw the eyes. Or, like animators do, add a strip of yellow post it note and redraw that section. The yellow drops out in hue/saturation like anything else. You can also use some white acrylic. Since it’s crayon, erasing is pretty much out of the question.When I worked at the elementary level, I had kids find ways to ‘add’ to my art. So, believe me, there’s usually a way to bring things like this back from the dead!

I got one of those Table Mate things for drawing on the road, and when sitting in the chair. No more drawing on top of pillows for me!

I’ve always thought there should be an app where Eric Canete gives you advice. Little did I know it already existed! Plus, geez, I don’t know if there’s anyone more supportive and nice as Eric? Eric’s words make me feel like I can lift mountains.

Also, Craig Zablo is insanely supportive! Gotta love the nice people in comics!

I have a surprising amount of friends at SDCC this year. But I always think, ‘I could buy this, and this and this, and this!’ Is it really worth going once (as a fan, forget that table jazz)? Or should I save up for a Cintiq Companion?

Your input is highly appreciated, because Project: Evan wants a Cintiq Companion is super tempting.

Mom: When was the last time you visited York?

Me: well, I can tell you that Aunt Patty gave me a copy of Cutthroat Island for my Game Gear. So…a while.

Mom: Cutththroat Island…wow, that IS a long time.

Grandma (part 2)

My mom was explaining Animal Crossing to my grandma, which was insanely adorable. Grandma got stuck on the idea of you having to buy things for/from the animal neighbors. ‘Why don’t they get a job? Your character has a job. If they got one, maybe they’d stop asking you for things.’ My mom kept playing later, and grandma said, ‘You’re addicted to games, like the kids I see on the bus. All they do is look down at their games.’

Grandma on a woman on a movie: ‘What’s wrong with that woman’s lip? Does she have the herpes?’ Me: ‘Her husband hit her.’ Grandma: ‘Oh…’

Grandma on my comic career: ‘That commercial that was on, for the galaxy movie? That said Marvel, and that’s the comic company, right?’ Me: ‘yes, one in the same!’ Grandma: ‘You should go to them, we’re close to New York. Show them your art and get a job with them. I’m sure they would have lots of jobs for you.’

Grandma: clap clap clap Me: ‘Oh, did you like the movie?’ Grandma: ‘No, I’m clapping because it’s over.’

My grandma is watching Syfy and cracking up at this movie Copperhead. So I was sketching a bit.
