    Because one wasn't enough, here's my other Bat Man idea:
    Clearly, the Coilhouse girls have infected my brain with their accursed DRGBLZ. I blame Hugh Grant.

    @Amalgamated Biscuit - Sorry, I was hasty and unclear: you are looking for the regular sketchbook with heavy weight paper, instead of the dastardly plain moleskine which is NOT a sketchbook, but in fact an unlined notebook (and definitly can't handle a nib pen). The heavy weight paper can handle just about anything you throw at it, and even if it buckles, just leave it closed for a little while and it will shape right up. If you are looking to do straight up watercolor or ink washes, you might have a bit of difficulty with beading on the surface of the paper. It works better with tempera, acrylic, oil, or markers due to some sort of treatment to the surface of the paper. The only things that bleeds through are sharpies and too much oil paint.

    Hope that helps more!!

    @Amalgamated Biscuit - I really liked your 2-panel comic.

    @sebfowler - Love the Bat-Manatee... now you need to do the Manatee-Man! (Actually, he could just be called Man-atee!)

    I've recently sent off a few submissions to childrens' book publishers to see if I can get any work on that side of the illustration business so as well as some pre-existing comics stuff I did a couple of single illustrations to show something a bit different. The first was of Rapunzel in her tower:

    And the other is Georgina and The Dragon (not an actual story AFAIK, but a nice image):

    Sooo...I've entered the Gorillaz 'Design The Evangelist' contest...and this is my first entry...and she has a blue poncho and a giant red bell for a hat...and it would be very nice of any and all persons who see this to consider voting for me.

    That would be a very nice thing to do. But don't feel pushed.

    For all those of you in need of more Remaking/Remodeling action: the current challenge at Superhero Cocoa is to redesign the Scarlet Witch as a book character - a choice of character and theme that I find interesting.
    The link to the challenge

    And I'm also in total agreement with @staticgirl's comment; @ Kevin Mellon, this is one hell of a piece!!!!

    In case you hadn't seen his main site; Warren asked me to design a week's worth of Station Idents. Here's the first two he's used:

    I'm pretty happy with how they turned out; it was interesting/daunting/scary trying to channel his brain to come up with the phrases...

    @staticgirl @miranda - Thank you!

    @paulsizer - If I could, I'd pay you to design everything I work on. Always awesome and classy and slick.

    @Paul Sizer: I saw them on Mr. Ellis site, and thought they were very, very cool looking. When I saw the second one, I started thinking about what a remarkable designer you are and that it would be nice to be able to tell you so. So thanks for posting them, so that I can drown you in appreciation!

    Very cool work Paul. You should be proud and I am looking forward to seeing the rest of the set.
