Pornoman & Kinky 2012

Pornoman Sketch
As far as I can tell, having the Pornoman cartoons on this site hasn’t done much to improve my SEO. If you do a search for “Pornoman” and “Kinky” together with either Google or Bing then the cartoons show up at the top of the list. Pornoman by himself doesn’t show up for before the second page. He’s got way too much competition from all the other Pornomen in the world.

Midnight Commando 2012

Midnight Commando Sketch
When I started posting the All Cover Comics entries I felt a compulsion to do new versions of each one to show how my art skills have progressed in the 21 years since I drew the originals.

I fought the compulsion.

Number one, I don’t have time to draw 20 new comic book covers.

Number two, those covers were jokes. Jokes rarely get funnier if the anatomy being depicted is more accurate or the vanishing lines all line up properly. In fact, too much reality can make a joke less funny.

The Midnight Commando is a good example of that. All the mayhem would have been less humorous if it looked more realistic.

So, instead of redrawing all the covers I drew new portraits of each series’ protagonist and created a couple of new header banners for this site. You’ve probably seen them by now. If not, the header banners load randomly so, if you just refresh this page enough times they should eventually show up.

Zipperhead #5

Zipperhead #5This is the last of my submissions to All Cover Comics. I submitted illustrations and cartoons to other High School Comics publications. Those will show up on these pages sooner or later. I’m also working on an interview with Bob and Randy that should get posted in the next few weeks. Stay tuned!

Zipperhead #1

Zipperhead #1Finally, we have Zipperhead, the friendly neighborhood serial killer. Of all the ACC characters, only Zipperhead had any life beyond these submissions. It wasn’t a public life. As far as I can remember he never saw print anywhere else. He just appears in my imagination when I need to consider an over the top psycho. I’ve got random sketches of him in my sketchbooks. I’ve got one specific story that I’d like to use him in but I’ll probably never get around to it. He’s got no origin tale. He doesn’t have any particular motivation for his kills nor does he have a preferred set of victims. He doesn’t have a favorite weapon. I don’t know what his face looks like under his mask. I don’t know how he breathes through that thing.

Zippie just kills people and then makes bad jokes about it. That’s his schtick. It keeps him happy.
