This week at Don’t Pick the Flowers I have quite a bit to share so I will jump right in. First, I would like to share that I am “Pick of the Month” at Webcomic Alliance. I appreciate them featuring and sharing my comic, and what a nice review. On the September 15th they will post 10 questions I have answered. Until then, I would love for you to read the very nice article here: www.webcomicalliance.com/site-news/potm-dont-pick-the-flowers/#more-8266
Next, I have drawn fan art for Goober and Cindy comic by Daniel Barton. Daniel has decided to end his comic, which will be missed, and he asked his fellow cartoonist to add their take on Goober and Cindy and send them off with a bang. Here is my artwork and please check out Daniel’s website here: www.gooberandcindy.com/archives/2014/goodbye
Another fan art I have created is for Jon Esparza, and his Monster Cereal Box Challenge. Jon is one of the nicest guys, read all the details about his challenge and see all the great comic art from super fun and talented cartoonists here: jonscrazystuff.blogspot.com/2014/08/open-box-of-monster-laughs-with-crazy.html
I’m going to attempt to share my Ice Bucket Challenge, hopefully it will show up correctly. I was challenged by Frank Jordan of Company man Comic to draw a comic which you can see here: www.dontpicktheflowers.com/comic/ice-bucket-challenge-08202014/ I in turned challenged Mark Stokes of Zombie Boy Comic and Nate Fakes of Break of Day Comic.
Last but not least, here are some sketches I have posted and wanted to share from my sketch book. Top left: A charcoal sketch of Suzanne playing cards with a ghost. Top right: In honor of Tim Burton’s Birthday, here is my fun take on Tim. Bottom left: A charcoal sketch of Suzanne crying and Duck sympathizing. Bottom right: A fun but strange charcoal sketch of Robert Smith with the words from the “Not in Love” song from Crystal Castles featuring Robert Smith of The Cure.
That’s all for now, a lot to cover since the last blog post. Until next time, please check out all the links and “Don’t Pick the Flowers”! Dave
