BCR: Eisner Day 2016 And 2017

Eisner Kids Workshop 2016

From the event at Cambridge Public Library in 2016, The Will Eisner Kids Workshop, organized in part by the Boston Comics Roundtable.  I thoought I would jump in with the kids drawing at my table and I was given the following prompts to make a comic out of:
•Loner
•Bum
•Missing 2 Fingers
•Suitcase Full of Money

Eisner Kids Workshop 2017

I participated in 2017 as well and had even MORE fun drawing with the kids.  Not sure where the concept came for this one, I think I might have asked several different kids for ideas or riffed off of what they were drawing.  Stealing IP, baby.  I may finish this bad boy some day.

You So Fly

A fly I made for a video at work; it's a close up of the pest bugging the person on screen.  It's a simple loop, but I just liked him is all.

BaT-Rex!


From The Line It Is Drawn, Week 324:
Anthropomorphize a comic book character! Pick a comic book character and an animal and our artists will draw an anthropomorphic version of that character!
Twitter follower, KeithAlanMorgan suggested: Batman as a tyrannosaurus rex.  I thought the idea of a t-rex scaling a building à la Batman '66 would be fun, with him holding on to that rope with those tiny arms.
