old art part two

I just finished inking two more pages of Obscure Tales 3. They will be hopefully scanned, finished and posted tomorrow. Not only was this the fastest I've worked (two pages penciled, blue-traced and inked in one day), but, I must say, that these are the two best comic pages I've ever done. Sure, I will likely hate them tomorrow, but as of now, I am very, very happy.

In celebration, here is a rather old drawing I did for my application portfolio for the Maine College of Art. While on duty one weekend night, I sat in a desk chair in the hanger of Coast Guard Air Station Traverse City, MI. This helo (pronounced 'hee-low'; naval/ coast guard aviators NEVER say 'chopper' or 'heli'), the Sikorsky HH-60J Jayhawk, was actually the reason I got out of the USCG; it made me airsick, so I took myself off of flight rotation. Nice drawing, though...



Also, for those who may care, I'm going to allow anonymous posting (with security word). This is because I know people that follow this blog that don't have a Google account and don't want one, but, I'd like to hear from them.

Listening to while posting : "Ronnie's Racing School" by Glitter Mini Nine (note: I really like this song and went looking to find the album, but they broke up last year and the album with this song is only on eBay for $80. I like them, but not that much).

DR. S. I think that you mentioned him once before. Sounded like a cool guy. My grandad was a Navy man; didn't care much for us aviators...

LB: It's easy when you can see it in front of you (I am SO kidding. Drawing from life ain't easy)
