In Smithee news, I'm still drawing away panels for Smithee#2. My buddy Garvin Lee is moving this weekend, so I didn't designate the usual most of the day to draw comics. But he has distractions to take care of and while I wait for when he is ready to actually MOVE, I am killing time by doing some posting. He lent a crucial hand to me when I moved to this place a couple years ago. I moved out of my old place because it was getting really ghetto, and I had been thru a Dave Ramsey financial peace university course at church an one night I decided I HAD to do something about my life to move forward. Moving to a cheaper place was the goal I arrived at. I got a cheaper place, but old bad habits die hard and I didn't put the extra money away.
I had an unbelievable amount to stuff to move. I was quite embarrassed by how much I had since I had folks helping. Garvin was a hero and helped me thru that ordeal. So, now it is my turn to help him.

Along these lines, I have started a story arc in Plutonium about how I ended up being a computer jockey.
I also started an account with Comicsdomination in order to post plutoniums.

I have been intrigued by high contrast art for awhile. I've tried printing white etching on black, but the white is never really "white". I even bought some supposedly more opaque white Akua Kolor ink and tried it. It wasn't anymore opaque than their regular white. Geez!
So when I bought a children's book with scratch board art, my cleverness kicked in and I wondered how I could try it without buying anything. So, I took an empty soy milk carton and cut out one of the sides and coated it with sharpie and made my own scratchboard. This is my second scratch board. The milk carton material allows the black to be rubbed/scratched off easily, making tones quite possible.
This cell is about where I'm going into the 'Cold Room' where Billy is sneaking another one of my home-made sodas. In the 'Cold Room' is a chain-link cage we made to keep food safe incase of attack, or have a refuge for ourselves in that event. It is A 'Cold Room' in that is isn't heated, and is vented to the cold air outside for refrigeration purposes.

I went back and bought that book for inspiration.
I just wanted to draw something fun on my birthday this month. Hence, the fly saying happy birthday. It's not cause he was leaving a 'present' on the eraser. Been doing some much serious drawing for my smithee guide and for plutonium, I needed to do something different.
