Talk to Brent:
This little drawing is one that my wife Erika requested. She always says that the hardest thing for her to believe about Spider-Man is that he sews his own costumes--and I can't blame her for being skeptical!

Another of my favorite art forms is animation! There are so many great movies and tv shows that utilize animation to tell fantastic stories. I could make a long list of favorites, but one animated tv series that I highly recommend is Samurai Jack. It features great creatures, robots, and aliens, creative uses of the medium, and it's also tons of fun!

I'd love to hear what some of your favorite animated features are--whether tv or movie format. Thanks!

I didn't have a lot of free time for art today, though I did draw during a nasty traffic jam on my way home from work. It was pretty dark and I only drew when traffic was stopped. It's not very impressive, but Erika says it goes well with my fortune--which I attached to the pic!

Today's question is: Who is your favorite villain?
This time it doesn't have to be related to super heroes. There are great villains in almost every story. I especially like the evil-mastermind types that scheme and watch from a distance and send their lackeys to do their dirty work. They also talk to themselves and/or monologue excessively. Maybe that comes from all the Saturday morning cartoons I used to watch. Skeletor from He-Man and the Masters of the Universe is my absolute favorite, but I could list at least twenty other similar villains that I hope to be like someday...

Apologies for my inactivity! It's likely you didn't notice, since few people are reading my blog! Thus, I'm going to start posting questions here to try and get some confirmation that more of you are visiting!

The panel on the left is from the rough draft of a Tantum Gray page I sent to Steven today (+200 bonus points to Steven who already does comment on my blog! Hooray!). My art was a little slow last week because of illness, but I did draw another wild critter you can see at deviantART!

Here is my question, which I hope you will answer in the comments and which I promise to respond to: Who is your favorite super hero?

I have several answers to this question, but as a child my favorite was always Spider-Man! Needless to say, the trailer that came out a few days ago for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (thank goodness they decided against a cheesy subtitle) left me drooling on my computer screen and speculating wildly! Surprisingly, my wife Erika did not have the same reaction. Oh, well. At least I know she'll go and watch it with me on opening day!

Here is a link to the trailer if you haven't seen it:

And please tell me about your favorite super heroes!
