Billy Batson And The Shawshank Redemption

From The Line It Is Drawn, week 107:

As per an Axel Medellin suggestion, it’s Stephen King Week! Team-up/mash-up comic book characters with Stephen King novels or stories. Like, as an example, Squirrel Girl as Carrie. Now that I’ve given that example, no one else has to actually suggest it.

Twitter follower BeccaBlast suggested "Andy Dufresne gets a little help from Billy Batson at THAT moment in Shawshank Redemption."  Shawshank is one of my all time favorite flicks, so I found it hard to pass up.  Shazam!

Cover Homage

From The Line It Is Drawn, week 106

A return of one of our regular bits! Comic cover homages! Name a comic book character you’d like to appear in an homage to a classic comic book cover!
Twitter follower Ecovore suggested: Guardians of the Galaxy/Giant-size X-men 1 homage

I'm a fan of the original line-up from old issues of Marvel Presents, specifically, I remember getting an issue as a kid that featured the Guardians teaming up with the Silver Surfer and instantly being hooked. I enjoyed a few issues of their return in the early 90s, but soon lost interest. The new series I don't know that well, but I've always enjoyed the old Marvel monsters (like Groot) and was a fan of Mantlo/Mignola's Rocket Raccoon series, and the new Starlord seemed like he would be fun to draw.

My recent pieces, this one in particular, seem to be running very hot and saturated in their color treatment and it remains something I'm trying to correct as I continue to study different palettes.

Check out all the other great homages over at CBR's The Line It Is Drawn.

Hourman and Minuteboy

From The Line It Is Drawn, week 105:

Based on a suggestion from our own Xum and in honor of the news that Spider-Man appears to be gaining a sidekick, come up with a sidekick for a superhero who has never had an official sidekick!

Both joehennes and KeithWTSMorris suggested Hourman and Minuteboy on Twitter, and I've never drawn a Rex Tyler Hourman, so there you go.

Check out what the rest of the Liners decided to tackle at the link above.

Office Cat 41

For Mr. Mr.--

"We absolutely love the logo. However, we changed the name of the project last week to 'Working Felines.' When will the new logo reflecting that change be ready?"
