I wish I had a light box....

I make do with what I have. In this case a window and blue tape. Anyway, the eagle-eyed reader will notice that this is a new page of Bone Dog.


In other news, I had a piece of artwork on the Challengers ASSEMBLE blog last Friday. For those not familiar with the Blog (which is associated with the best comic shop in Chicago), every Monday they post a drawing prompt and artists can submit drawings by Thursday. They post all entries on Friday.

Last week's subject was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles so here's mine:

I have started drawings for Challengers ASSEMBLE probably about four times, but never finished by the Thursday Deadline. I knew I couldn't miss this one since I loved TMNT when I was younger. I just sat down one night and banged this out in about 15 minutes. I did it almost completely from memory, too.

Michelangelo was always my favorite, but I decide to do Donatello instead. Mostly because I thought a bo staff is easier to draw than nunchucks. Also, I used to own a copy of the TMNT Martial Arts Training Manual featuring Donatello, so I do have a fondness for him.

Like I said, I drew this from memory. However, I'm struck now at how similar my drawing is to the cover of that martial arts manual. Crazy.
