Wolverine Face Mask
How about that wintery weekend? It got really cold here in Auckland on Saturday. I’m currently trying to nurse myself back to health from actually contracting a cold, so having it actually be colder outside wasn’t helping my cause. It also kept me away from visiting friends at this years Auckland Zinefest, so that was too bad.
It wasn’t a very productive weekend art wise, but I did get one piece finished. My brother requested I do a mask for his friend’s birthday. Similar to what I had done with the Star Wars masks, but this time of Wolverine.
Apparently this guy’s favourite Wolverine costume is the old 1980’s Brown and Gold costume. Which I am quite partial to as well. It was fun to draw. Wolverine is a fun character. Even though they don’t allow him to smoke in the comics anymore, back then he always had a cigar in his mouth, so I thought it fitting to add that as well.
Thanks for reading.

Look, I like gritty. I write gritty. There is a time and a place for gritty. I’ll take my Batman gritty, thank you, and I will acknowledge that such a portrayal means that my 11-year-old has to wait before he sees The Dark Knight. But if Hollywood turns out a Superman movie that I can’t take him to? They’ve done something wrong.
Art Adventures in Melbourne
Hey all, Some good news first up. I’ve finished a comic. I thought about doing another one, and then another one before posting, but that would be cruel. You’ve all waited long enough. Life has been busy, and I’m not sure when the one after this one will come, but it’s still something I need to do, so I will try my best to find a way. New comic will go live this week. In fact, it’ll be up tomorrow. How about that?
Meanwhile. here are some pictures I took from a recent visit to Melbourne. It was a fun trip. Highlights included hanging out with some friends and taking in the Dreamworks animation exhibit they have on at ACMI. I think it’s on until August, so if you’re in the city I do recommend it. I also found some different graffiti lane ways. They’re probably very well known to most, but were new to me, so it was nice to discover some fun art along our walking tracks.
This is no laughing matter.
