The Tin Man
He’s leaking love from his newly-formed heart. Love and motor oil.

Here’s my own very simple take on the upcoming female Thor. I took away the six circles from Thor’s costume because I couldn’t think of how to put them on her chest without making them do anything but accentuate her breasts. So I replaced them with a single smaller disc that acts as a cape clasp. I also gave her a single circle that wraps around her waist and floats there like an ineffective belt because I wanted a way to visually separate the top from the bottom. I shortened the cape and also shortened her hair because I wanted her to have a more sleek and slender overall design. Plus, it’s humorous to me to think that the female interpretation of Thor has shorter hair than Thor himself. :D
I also completely redesigned the hammer to be more of a long-handled warhammer that somewhat resembles the hammer of Beta Ray Bill as an homage to someone else who has taken up the mantle of Thor.
I think she looks sufficiently badass. :) I’m looking forward to seeing her appear in the series. My theory is that she’s going to be Torunn Thorsdottir.

Night Terrors photography by Laure Fauvel

on Behance

French photographer and digital retoucher Laure Fauvel has turned the tables on things that go bump in the night in this photo series ‘Terreurs’. Instead of having the children hiding, he has depicted them as strong and brave with a sword, pop gun or fairy wand drawn and the monsters and creatures cowering in fear.




These are so fantastic. I love the concept of having boys and girls fighting back against their worst nightmares, and winning. Such a wonderful project.


Come and get your love…

This movie was all kinds of wonderful.

Now that I’m done with my Guardians of the Galaxy, I’m moving on to other pursuits. Like more Avengers!

This bone is approximately 14 inches long, gathered in central Iowa in 2013, and decorated with the finest bone magicks. (via Folk Art Silver and Red Deer Tibia by squelettedebois on Etsy)

A friend of mine paints recovered deer bones. I like this one because it looks like Iron Man. :) You owe it to yourself to check out everything she does.
Here’s an adorable God of Thunder calling down the lightning for your Sunday morning.

Rocket Raccoon
I’ve been wanting to draw this little fella for quite a while. He’s the last of my Guardians of the Galaxy members and I’m quite proud of how he turned out. Now that I’ve managed to draw all five members, I feel like I’m finally really for the movie next week.

On the marking of milestones

On the marking of milestones

On Sunday, July 13th, I posted a new Arcadia comic with very little fanfare. It was a busy weekend, we had just celebrated our daughter’s fifth birthday with a big family party the day before, and we were recovering and cleaning and just generally enjoying the quiet that comes from a week’s worth of effort gradually winding down. I posted comic #32 right from my phone because it had been ready…

Continuing the Guardians of the Galaxy train! Last but not least will be Rocket, and I’m super anxious about drawing him. He might not show up for a few days! Until then, enjoy this kick-ass daughter of Thanos.
