Star Wars:The Phantom Menace
“Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes. Even between the land and the ship.”

Was born in a small town in the United States. Raised by parents who are full blooded wizards. She was the youngest of four, and all attended Hogwarts.

Growing up is hard enough, but when you grow up under the sea it's just plain crazy. There are dangers everywhere, sharks, giant squids, electric eels, and including from above.
But life is what you make of it, and there is no other place like under the sea.

Sorry it has taken so long since I've posted. But I've been busy with t-shirt art, proposals, podcasing, drawsumthincool, and life in general I haven't had a chance to put anything up. But I swear here is more on the way, so share and enjoy.
About this Drawing:
Wednesday is the day that Na-Na and Jack play.
Jack is a play hard kind of guy, but when he wears himself out he likes to curl up with Na-Na for a nice nap.

In a world that is beside our own there is a world where they live by the gun and the sword, and are ruled over by a monarchy. A princess who is being groomed to take over her kingdom is the target of growing coup by dark forces.
She decides take action and follow the "Way of the gun."

Sundays are the day that Gung-Gung and Jack go for their stroll. Sundays are the best days for stroll down to the park. The streets are quiet, kids are out playing and Gung-Gung also like to bring Blondie “the dog”.
Today Jack insisted that he held Blondie’s leash, and when a taunting squirrel crossed their path, Jack learned how to wrangle a charging beast!

I know I haven't posted in two days. It's not because I haven't been busy. I'm actually hard at work, and I'm sitting on five new illustrations I want to post. But the problem is that most are gifts and I don't want to accidentally give away the surprise.
So...I have a bunch of stuff that I haven't posted before I started this blog or the Doubledorkmeter Podcast site. I please enjoy some classic DrawsumthinCool and check back because I'll have new stuff up in the next day or two.
Space adventurer! No planet is to mean, or alien punk to tough to take down Spiff. He travels the Galaxy in search of adventure. No task is to dangerous with this trusty blaster at his side.

Couple months back my favorite serial audio drama podcast (Wormwood) put out the call for episodic show art. By the way Wormwood is an incredible Horror/Mystery serial podcast, which is funny, and dark with a huge cast of interesting characters voiced by a small but incredibly talented troupe.
If you are a fan of Steve Niles, or Twin Peaks you will love this show.
Anyways... I decided that I'd like to contribute my depiction of the lovely sarcastic Sparrow, the assistant to Dr. Xander Crowe and my favorite character.
I thought I would include the before show number and title.
After Show number and title.
So if your into the theatre of the mind check out: Wormwood. You won't regret it.

About this Drawing:
"So when the great word 'Mother!' rang once more,
I saw at last its meaning and its place;
Not the blind passion of the brooding past,
But Mother -- the World's Mother -- come at last,
To love as she had never loved before --
To feed and guard and teach the human race."
-Charlotte Perkins Gilman

About a week or two ago I made a post on Facebook and Twitter, asking "Ninja vs. Robots, who would win?"
The overwhelming response was Ninja-Robot!
So I present a rough sketch of Ninja-Bot!
This Droid will be the main villian in this years Leong family comic cover!
In previous years we've had the Family Adventure cover...
and the Matt and Jack roaming the 7th Layer of Hell in "DriftWorld" (which some day may find it's way into an audiodrama.)
But this year I'm putting the family back into peril while we fight Ninja-Robots! So stay posted and you'll see roughs, pencils, inks, and full colour!
So stay tuned!

Quoted from Wikipedia about Ladybugs:
In parts of Northern Europe, tradition says that one's wish granted if a ladybird lands on oneself (this tradition lives on in North America, where children capture a ladybird, make a wish, and then "blow it away" back home to make the wish come true). In Italy, it is said by some that if a ladybird flies into one's bedroom, it is considered good luck. In central Europe, a ladybird crawling across a girl's hand is thought to mean she will get married within the year. In some cultures they are referred to as lucky bugs (Turkish: uğur böceği)

The Great Gran-Dan-O has finally met his match.
No one could expected “The Fury of the Carnage Cousins!”
Gran-Dan-O never saw it coming as Tornado Tyler administered a brutal ankle biting attack. Then to be brought down the Marvelous Mason’s Flying Noogie Smack-Down!
This was a brilliant VICTORY for the rookie pair-up!
But the Great Gran-Dan-O spoke to our correspondent after the match and swears that there will be a rematch as soon as the room stops spinning.

pictures on my phone and came across this pic from Colorado last year.
There was nothing like standing on top of that mountain, looking out at
everything. The brisk cold air in my lungs and the clear blue sky broken
up by mountain peaks. Then the sensation of snow running underfoot the
rush of air across your face, then the sound of snow crunching before it
flies up in a giant white cloud as your skis dig in.
Just another day in paradise.

There is nothing more relaxing then a trip to the park on a lazy Sunday afternoon...
That was until Tyler decided to take the wheel on the wagon and plummet down the steepest hill they could find!
“Wait!” screamed Grandpa Dan, as he chased after Tyler and Mason.
The Wagon only picked up speed as if Grandpa Dan’s desperate cries were rocket fuel that propelled them onwards to adventure and juice boxes!

Meet the Great-Gran-Dan-O!
The Gran-Daddy of all Professional Wrestlers! No toddler can equal his mighty “Hang you upside down attack”. Or can out manuver his “Tickle you while you squeal” technique.
See him tonight at the Pak-N-Play Dome of Thunder!
If you Dare!
